What's coming up?

Well, this winter has been kind of rough with more snow than I have ever seen, my mom has had some health problems and the kids have been sick. Despite all that 2010 has just gotten a lot more promising with the annoucement that Iron Maiden will be putting out a new studio album towards the end of summer. Never mind the fact that it's called "The Final Frontier" which unfortunately brings to mind images of Keel mand they are not a band I want to picture or hear. It also brings to mind Star Trek V: The Final Frontier which was far and away the worst of the Star Trek movies. Still after the last two Maiden albums being so spectacular I have to believe the upcoming album will follow along the same track. It was already promising to be a decent year with releases of High on fire, Scorpions, Armored Saint and others, but Maiden's announcement eclipses any other releases for sure.


For this week I hope to have out reviews of the latest from Gamma Ray, Uriah Heep, Hansel and maybe one other. Also I am sure that Clash of the album covers will pop up too. I may write some more on genres if time allows. If the kids feel up to it maybe I will start doing the first of a possible monthly segment where I have my kids (the Metalgirl and the Metalboy) give their thoughts on a classic metal album.

***Have a great week and remember only like 4-5 months until the new Maiden album comes out. Whoo-hoo!
