DVD: "Iron Maiden And The New Wave Of British Of Heavy Metal"

Source: Blabbermouth

June 10th release date.. here is the PR release from the article:

"Back in 1976, nobody really knew that there was an old wave of British heavy metal. But within two years of their formation, IRON MAIDEN had spearheaded what came to be abbreviated the NWOBHM, and as with punk the year before, a new generation of rock musicians bought in a new wave of the genre and in the process made loud, raw, heavy rock the global phenomenon it is today. For the first time this film investigates this New Wave the bands, the records, the media and the series of unconnected events that led to this astonishing, durable and still hugely relevant form which is still heard today in virtually every rock record released. Focusing on MAIDEN and the other pivotal bands of the time, such as SAXON, SAMSON, PRAYING MANTIS, DIAMOND HEAD, TYGERS OF PAN TANG and many others, this DVD is the ultimate expose of a style that may not get as much press as punk, but is equally as relevant to the music of the second millennium. It features rare footage of all the main NWOBHM bands; Live and studio recordings of the pivotal tracks; Scarce news items and archive of the movement, from the time, as it unfolded around the UK; Seldom seen photographs, many from private collections. It also includes exclusive interviews with many of the major players, including, IRON MAIDEN's Paul Di'Anno and Dennis Stratton, DIAMOND HEAD's Brian Tatler, TYGERS OF PAN TANG's Rob Weir, SAMSON's legendary drummer Thundersticks, Tino and Chris Troy from PRAYING MANTIS, the current line-up of GIRLSCHOOL and many other high-profile names from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. There's also commentary, review and expertise from; Malcolm Dome [Kerrang, Classic Rock], Jerry Ewing [Metal Hammer, Classic Rock] Geoff Barton [staff writer at Sounds during the New Wave], Garry Bushell [Sounds journalist and champion of NWOBHM], Neil Kay [legendary metal DJ from the Soundhouse club] and British metal author and journalist Joel McIver."

Hmmmmm.......

Could be cool. I'll probably Netflix it when it comes out.

Fucking hell - Dome, Ewing, Bushell and McIver? How to make a metal DVD dull and lifeless in four easy steps.

This will be the same cheap, unauthorised load of shit these companies constantly produce all year round.

I must ask what's wrong with Dome and Ewing, as they write for Classic Rock Magazine, the only music paper I can tolerate.

Writing and speaking are two different things.

Although I've never thought Ewing was any good as a writer either,

True, but I never thought Dome was a boring speaker. I don't know what Ewing looks like though so...

I've never heard Dome say a single insightful thing. Ever. Which is ridiculous because he's been in this business for a long damn time.
