Judas Priest "British Steel: Legacy Edition"

JUDAS FUCKING PRIEST!!!! Chequense la noticia de esta nueva edición de este clásico del NWOBHM.

Sony Music has set a May 11 release date (one day earlier internationally) for "British Steel: Legacy Edition", the limited deluxe expanded edition of JUDAS PRIEST's classic 1980 album "British Steel".

"British Steel" was the sixth studio album by JUDAS PRIEST. Released on April 14, 1980 and produced by Tom Allom, "British Steel" was recorded at Tittenhurst Park in England — a mansion owned at the time by former THE BEATLES member Ringo Starr, and previously owned by John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

"British Steel" has long been considered one of metals all-time classics. It was with this release that PRIEST truly broke through to the masses, with a pair of tracks that have become fixtures on rock radio — the enduring anthems "Breaking The Law" and "Living After Midnight". But like all classic albums, there is not a single weak track detected on "British Steel", as evidenced by such standouts as the perennial concert highlight "Metal Gods", as well as "Rapid Fire", "Grinder", "United" and "The Rage", among others.

In 2009 JUDAS PRIEST performed the "British Steel" album in its entirety for the first time ever as part of their 30th anniversary USA tour. A filmed recording of the show on the August 17, 2009 at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida will be included in both the limited-edition deluxe and deluxe releases. The show was captured in front of a vibrant American audience and in full 5.1 surround and stereo sound. Known for their high-energy and spectacular stage shows the band played the entire "British Steel" album in sequence as well as a number of other well-know tracks from their catalog.

The live concert was mixed in stereo and 5.1 by the original "British Steel" producer Tom Allom. In addition, the DVD will include the bonus content of "The Making Of British Steel", a 30-minute doc featuring the four original band members. This new DVD brings the live PRIEST experience like no other live recording.

Gaahl homosexual del año

Como no tengo nada que hacer y me aburro en mi trabajo aquí les traigo esta noticia, personalmente nunca me gusto Gorgoroth, se me hacia la típica banda del montón, metida en un sin fin de problemas para hacerse los interesantes, al menos esta noticia está interesante y como ya no son Gorgoroth sé que no lo hacen para volverse noticia:

En la última semana de Enero de este año fueron celebrados los "Bergen Gay Galla" y varios premios fueron presentados a personas e instituciones que han contribuido a la comunidad gay en Noruega.
El premio más prestigioso fue dado a Kristian Espedal (Gaahl), quien fue conocido muchos años por su participación en GORGOROTH , el ex-vocalista fué nombrado "El Homosexual del Año" y el aceptó el premio en persona.

"I don't need an award to be myself. But if this can help other people in the same scene as me, it's a positive thing"Gaahl dijo al periódico local Bergensavisen.

Gaahl quien tiene 34 años de edad esta en una relación con un joven de 19 años de edad Robin Jakobsen. Cuando se le pregunto como había conocido a su actual pareja, Gaahl dijo:

"It was after closing time. I was at Fincken (gay bar in Bergen). Robin came to the club to look for his former boyfriend. I was buzzed on white wine, and suddenly I saw a glowing figure in the door. That was Robin. I thought to myself that he must be mine."

¿Fué amor a primera vista?

"No…I had to work a little for it."

¿La gente se sorprendió cuando te declaraste homosexual?

"I think it's strange that it wasn't known before, but I never had a need to go public with it. Finally a German journalist had the guts to ask the question, and I answered him. It wasn't any more painful than that."
