Former Iron Maiden Members Paul Di’Anno and Blaze Bayley Plus “Eddie” Creator Derek Riggs to be Inducted into Metal Hall of Fame 2021

The Metal Hall of Fame is proud to announce the induction of key members of the Iron Maiden family and history- original Iron Maiden singer Paul Di’Anno, Blaze Bayley, and iconic “Eddie” mascot creator Derek Riggs.

Paul Di’Anno wrote and sang on Maiden’s first two legendary albums. They are still considered by many Iron Maiden fans to be their favorites.

Blaze Bayley was hired following the departure of vocalist Bruce Dickinson in the 1990s. Bayley wrote and sang for Iron Maiden for five years and recorded two albums with the band. Blaze-era songs are still concert staples in the band’s set list today.

Derek Riggs is the genius behind the visual side of Iron Maiden. He created the iconic “Eddie” character, one of the most beloved mascots in history. Many can argue that a huge part of the band’s continuous global success is attributed to the sinister, gruesome, shape-shifting Eddie.

“We are excited to induct these three artists who have helped shape the legacy of Iron Maiden,” says Pat Gesualdo, Metal Hall of Fame President/CEO. Gesualdo also addressed the fan’s overwhelming demand to induct all former and current members of Iron Maiden. “Along with the band’s massive fanbase, we’ve wanted to induct all the members of the band for years. However, we’ve been waiting for the green light from management. Hopefully with the continued support and encouragement from fans throughout the world, we can induct all the members of Iron Maiden into the Metal Hall of Fame soon.”

Additional major updates and surprise inductions will be announced shortly. Due to the current health advisory, the 2021 Metal Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held online at a date to be announced.

MOTÖRHEAD’s No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith Gets Anniversary Expansion


Watch a New Video for a Previously Unreleased, Live Version of “The Hammer” Plus Preorders & Exclusive March Bundles Here –

Back in the Summer of 1981, MOTÖRHEAD got louder, dirtier and more universal, and you’re getting an invitation to relive this most glorious of achievements once again…

Following on from 2020’s year-long celebration of MOTÖRHEAD’s iconic Ace Of Spades album comes the live album to end all live albums, the undisputed definitive live record of all time: No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this number one album, it is being presented in new deluxe editions. There will be hardback book-packs in two CD and triple LP formats, featuring a new venue demolishing remaster of the original album, bonus tracks and the previously unreleased – in its entirety – concert from Newcastle City Hall, March 30, 1981, the story of the album and many previously unseen photos. Also, the album will be released as a four CD box set of all three concerts recorded for the album released here in their entirety for the very first time and primed to gleefully shatter what’s left of your grateful eardrums.

Upon that original June 27th ’81 release, Lemmy is quoted as saying of No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith after it crashed into number one in the UK charts, “I knew it’d be the live one that went best, because we’re really a live band. You can’t listen to a record and find out what we’re about. You’ve got to see us.” No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith was MOTÖRHEAD’s first and only number one record in the UK and is still the most necessary live album of all time.

The No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith CD box set contains:

The No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith album, remastered from the original master tapes, featuring extra bonus tracks and newly unearthed, previously unreleased sound check recordings.
The three full recordings of the concerts that made up No Sleep, never before released in their entirety.
The story of No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith told through previously unpublished and new interviews with the people that were on the road at the time.
Never before seen photos and rare memorabilia.
Double sided, A3 concert posters from 1981.
Reproduction USA ’81 tour pass.
MOTÖRHEAD ‘England’ plectrum.
1981 European tour badge.
Reproduction Newcastle City Hall ticket.
Port Vale gig flyer post card.

MOTÖRHEAD in 1981 was a band of extremes; a flammable mix of non-stop celebration over their rising success and punishing graft, underscored by an inter-band powder-keg dynamic. After recording Ace Of Spades, it had shot to number four in the UK; the killer breakthrough after Overkill and Bomber had done essential groundwork, late 1980s Ace Up Your Sleeve UK tour was a triumphant lap of honour that spilled into the recording of No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith. The album took its title from an inscription painted on one of the trucks, referencing the 32 gigs they were playing with only two days off. The track listing ended up featuring three tracks from Ace Of Spades, five from Overkill, Bomber’s title track and two from their self-titled debut.

MOTÖRHEAD’s Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin Available Today via Silver Lining Music

MOTÖRHEAD’s Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin, a previously unreleased recording from the 2012 Kings of The Road Tour, is available today via Silver Lining Music.
Recorded December 5, 2012, Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin captures Germany’s love affair with the Grammy award winning band as they play in front of 12,000 delirious, delighted and demented MOTÖRHEADfans at the Berlin Velodrom.
Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin is available on CD with a bonus live DVD, as a double vinyl set, box set (GSA Retail Exclusive and via D2C Worldwide Ex GSA, containing CD with bonus DVD in Digipak, double black vinyl gatefold album in 180 gm and MOTÖRHEAD branded passport cover) and via digital platforms.
Throughout Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin, MOTÖRHEAD’s powerful synergy boots its way through the speakers with the boisterous charm and dirty, dangerous, sweaty gusto that was the Lemmy Kilmister/Phil Campbell/Mikkey Dee trademark. From the unapologetically furious “I Know How to Die” to a deliciously raucous “Going to Brazil,” Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin is all about the thick, raw and liberating power of MOTÖRHEAD live, with longtime producer Cameron Webb bringing his mixing skills to the party as well as doing a 5.1 mix of the DVD. Further highlights include a favorably feral “Rock It,” a rudely raunchy “You Better Run” and a classic one-two haymaker of “Ace of Spades” and “Overkill.” The leading track from the album will be a cranium cracking “Over the Top,” a song which must be as close to definitive of this band as you’ll ever find.
A longtime favorite of heavy metal, punk rock and rock ‘n’ roll fans alike, MOTÖRHEAD also became unlikely media darlings around the globe. Early reviews of Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin have proven that five years after leader Lemmy Kilmister’s death, listeners are still ravenous for “new” MOTÖRHEAD music.
“…there’s something about live MOTÖRHEAD recordings that make listeners feel as though they’re in the crowd. The act’s many years of experience lent to a robust and confident performance. MOTÖRHEAD‘s passion was simply undeniable, clearly displayed here.”Blabbermouth
“‘Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin’ is a superb live album and DVD. It doesn’t get too much better than this.”New Noise
“This live performance shows MOTÖRHEAD at the top of their game, as they have been performing as a trio for over a decade at this point.”Classic Rock
“‘Louder Than Noise…Live in Berlin’ is a live album which shows everything for what MOTÖRHEAD stands. If you hear it, you’ll get a lot of fun and some real Rock’n’Roll feeling. It’s an honorable last release.”
MOTÖRHEAD’s collective energy is as strong as it ever was and this is testament to the strength, depth and breadth of material they recorded throughout 40 illustrious years, across 22 studio albums. ‘Louder Than Noise …. Live In Berlin’ captures the very essence of this.”Metal Planet
“‘Louder than Noise…Live in Berlin’ (is) a presentation about which MOTÖRHEAD’s most devoted fans will make plenty of noise.” – Phil’s Picks
“You’d think Germans are the biggest fans of MOTÖRHEAD based on the reactions of the crowd at the band’s 2012 Berlin stop on the ‘Kings Of The Road’ tour. It’s beautifully captured on the new album ‘Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin,’ with 12,000 screaming fans and big hits displayed in all their glory.”Riff Magazine
“As another statement of how good MOTÖRHEAD is live, ‘Louder Than Noise…Live In Berlin’ is titled perfectly because in truth, only MOTÖRHEAD could be louder than noise.”Cryptic Rock
“Ultimately, ‘Louder Than Noise…’ is a great example of later years MOTÖRHEAD doing what they do best and sadly since the passing of Lemmy, this is the closest that we can get to enjoying the MOTÖRHEAD live experience.”Metal Digest
“Even six years removed from legendary vocalist Lemmy Kilmister’s passing, MOTÖRHEAD is still a name that is abuzz in the hard rock and heavy metal community.” – Dead Rhetoric
“…the one and only MOTÖRHEAD are back with a live record, entitled ‘Louder than Noise…Live in Berlin,’ which shows the legendary power trio at the height of their powers.”Vinyl Writer
Louder than Noise…Live in Berlin was captured by Herwig Meyszner, who has also produced concert films for the likes of Saxon, Exodus and Kreator, with a multi-camera no-shot-missed shoot that captures not just the energy onstage but the energy on the floor. In so many ways, Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin is a joyous celebration of Lemmy, Phil, Mikkey and this special night in Germany, and whether a collector completist or newbie to MOTÖRHEAD’s music, Louder Than Noise… Live in Berlin is a welcome reminder of what real rock ‘n’ roll is truly about.
Louder Than Noise…Live in Berlin track listing: I Know How to Die – Live in Berlin 2012 Damage Case – Live in Berlin 2012 Stay Clean – Live in Berlin 2012 Metropolis – Live in Berlin 2012 Over the Top – Live in Berlin 2012 Doctor Rock – Live in Berlin 2012 String Theory – Live in Berlin 2012 The Chase Is Better Than the Catch – Live in Berlin 2012 Rock It – Live in Berlin 2012 You Better Run – Live in Berlin 2012 The One to Sing the Blues – Live in Berlin 2012 Going to Brazil – Live in Berlin 2012 Killed by Death – Live in Berlin 2012 Ace of Spades – Live in Berlin 2012 Overkill – Live in Berlin 2012

Madame Mayhem Releases New Single “Cruel Heart” & Official Music Video

MADAME MAYHEM released her new single “Cruel Heart” to all digital platforms! The single was co-written by Madame Mayhem and Keith Wallen (of Breaking Benjamin).

The video can be seen at this link

“This was one of the first songs Keith Wallen and I wrote together. I always have such a great experience co-writing with Keith. I remember listening to this demo on my way home after we finished writing and just getting so excited to share it. I have been patiently waiting for the right moment to release this single and I think now is as good a time as any! This song is near and dear to my heart and I am excited for the world to hear it!” says Madame Mayhem.

She adds, “I performed this song live on tour a few times prior to recording it, which only makes this release even more special because of the excitement the crowds had for “Cruel Heart” hearing it for the first time as an unknown song. I remember having conversations with fans after the shows about how much they connected with it, which means so much to me! I hope the song continues to connect with people through this release.”

This song was produced and arranged by Johnny K (Disturbed, Megadeth, Sevendust, Finger Eleven), who also played bass on the track. Lead vocals and backing vocals were performed by Madame Mayhem, Keith Wallen performed guitars and backing vocals and Jason “JBomb” Harrison was on drums.

Those who yearn for the electric catharsis of loud guitars, driving rhythms, hypnotic
hooks, and the strength of shared experience have a new muse in Madame Mayhem.

The Manhattan born singer/songwriter takes charge of her own anxiety, hurt, and alienation, crushing it with sheer force of will, then channeling the remaining ether into pulse-pounding anthems, instantly connecting with anyone who has struggled.

She has toured with Sevendust, Memphis May Fire, Fozzy, Nonpoint and Doro. Across three exceedingly well-received albums – Ready for Me (2017), Now You Know (2015), and White Noise (2012) –Madame Mayhem worked with Russ “Satchel” Parrish (Steel Panther), Corey Lowery (Seether), Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (ex-Guns N’ Roses), and Troy McLawhorn (Evanescence) to name just a few. Her 2019 single “Broken” was co-written with Keith Wallen (Breaking Benjamin) and features her longtime friends and collaborators Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big) and Ray Luzier (Korn).

Ohio Rockers MOLLO RILLA Reveal New Video for “Night Fang” Single

Ohio-based rockers MOLLO RILLA have revealed a new video for the single “Night Fang” from the band’s sophomore album, Viva El Camino, due out December 4 via Seeing Red Records.
“The song is a fictitious story about a band of troublesome misfits hunting down a mischievous werewolf,” explains vocalist/guitarist Marco Ciofani. “Once tracked down, the group discovers the werewolf is not what they imagined at all, and a raucous party ensues! Although entirely mythical and fabricated, the story teaches the age old lesson, ‘never judge a book by its cover’ and respect, celebrate and appreciate others differences and accept those for who (or in this case ‘what’) they are.”
Watch the “Night Fang” video today via BraveWords at The single is available at
On Viva El Camino, the follow up to the band’s stunning 2019 self-titled debut, MOLLO RILLA ups the ante. The quartet flew to Los Angeles to work with renown engineer Bil Lane (Bob DylanJackson Browne) and producer/engineer Andrew Murdock (aka Mudrock), whose credits include Godsmack and Powerman 5000 and many more, at the Hobby Shop Recording Studio West. Viva El Camino is available for pre-order at
Viva El Camino track listing:1-The Raven2-El Camino3-Night Fang4-Pendelum5-Lock & Load6-Mike Angelo7-Let Go Pt. 18-Bliss9-Rage the Day10-Let Go Pt. 2
Since MOLLO RILLA’s inception, the group’s core mission is one of musical freedom – and simply creating damn fine rock music. Together, the group effortlessly blends styles from Latin to rockabilly, surf to hip hop, and even Disco. MOLLO RILLA’s lyrical themes focus on feelings, thoughts and beliefs on freedom, fantasy, faith and, of course, love.
No stranger to the music industry, main lyricist and songwriter Ciofani was previously signed as a songwriter under Roundhill publishing in Nashville. For a year he co-wrote songs with artists all around the city, including former members of Cage the Elephant’s Lincoln Parish. Disenchanted with Nashville and writing music for others, Ciofani returned to his hometown of Cleveland to create something all his own, and in 2017 he found the perfect musicians to compliment his unique writing style. May 2019 saw the release of MOLLO RILLA’s independent debut, followed by extensive touring that spring and summer. Another single, “Sangria,” was released in the fall of 2019 and received airplay on Cleveland’s iHeart Radio station, 100.7 WMMS. Based on the buzz surrounding their debut album, MOLLO RILLA was invited to share the stage with such luminaries as WeezerHalestorm and Static X at the 2020 Inkcarceration Festival, which ultimately was thwarted by COVID-19.

LAMB OF GOD propelled heavy metal into the new millennium two decades ago with the prophetically titled New American Gospel. They followed with 2003’s As the Palaces Burn, which made the Rolling Stone list of the Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. Ashes of the Wake (2004) was the first LAMB OF GOD album to be certified gold by the RIAA, followed by Sacrament (2006), which debuted in Billboard’s Top 10. Wrath (2009) earned the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock, Rock, and Tastemaker charts and was No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Those No. 1 positions were repeated with Resolution (2012). VII: Sturm und Drang (2015) debuted at No. 3 in North America and in the Top 5 in several countries. The single “512” from VII: Sturm und Drang received a Grammy nod for the “Best Metal Performance,” making it LAMB OF GOD’s fifth Grammy nomination.
A true collaboration between all members of the band, LAMB OF GOD’s eighth studio album is an amalgam of each individual’s contributions, blended to create a singular style. Guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler fuel the album with a mountain of riffs, taking what Lamb of God are known for, and unbelievably, upping the ante to new levels. The rhythm section of John Campbell, looming large as a rhythmic shadow, and drummer Art Cruz, who makes his studio debut with LAMB OF GOD here on this record, underpin the proceedings with passion, sweat and expansive dynamics. Vocalist D. Randall Blythe is as angry, insightful, and informed as ever. Never one to shrink from facing the darker aspects of our nature head-on, Blythe delivers with no punches pulled, and as only he and Lamb of God can in 2020.
LAMB OF GOD‘s co-headline tour with Megadeth plus special guests Trivium and In Flames has been postponed to 2021. For new dates and tickets visit:

Former Candlelight Red guitarist Jeremy Edge has just released his debut album through Deko Entertainment for his new project, the Jeremy Edge Project. It is available for streaming and download, as well as all major online outlets on both CD and Limited Edition Vinyl. Deko Entertainment president Bruce Pucciarello states this about Jeremy, “Smoothest axe and a complex rediscovery of the bluesy genre that serves as the foundation of all rock.  Jeremy is here to let us know how we are going to drive that car in 2020.  Top down, radio playing the perfect tune.  Crank it up baby…here he goes…” 

After 4 top 50 Active Rock singles with CLR, he is breaking a long hiatus by releasing an album that is a departure stylistically with more blues based, guitar based rock. On the stylistic direction, Jeremy says, “I have for years wanted to do something that puts me back in touch with my early influences, growing up and learning guitar – SRV, Hendrix, Billy Gibbons, Blackmore, Iommi, Page etc. But I did not want to do a retro album per se. I wanted this to be a melting pot of influences”, and the critics are taking notice.

“An intro to Firedancer opens with an example of Edge’s innate ability to work around his fretboard with a blistering instrumental segue into Firedancer with a funky riff and soulful singing….The Jeremy edge project is a welcome introduction for this upcoming guitarist and his talented guests. It is a refreshing alternative with solid songwriting .”

The Rockpit

In the coming weeks the track “Firedancer” will be debuted with a full length music video with Edge in the lead vocal position for the first time. Jeremy also enlisted the help of some fellow musicians for this project – Brandon Yeagley from Crobot and Brett Hestla from Dark New Day / Virgos Merlot both sing lead vocals on three tracks, legendary blues guitarist Josh Smith does dueling solos with Jeremy on the track “Lies”, and bassist John Delowery, drummer Dave Shaffer, and keyboardist Jeremy Baum on Hammond B3 organ round out the instrumentation.

The album features 9 tracks – varying from bluesy and soulful ballads to in your face rock grooves with blazing guitar. This album was recorded and mixed by Grammy nominated engineer Mike Feretti (Sevendust, Hell Yeah!, etc…) in Ringwood, NJ – who has also worked with Jeremy in the past with Candlelight Red.

There are limited edition bundles (while supplies last), which can be ordered via:

Bundle Includes:
– One (1) The Jeremy Edge Project – “Self-Titled” Vinyl / or CD
– One (1) The Jeremy Edge Project Tee
– One (1) The Jeremy Edge Project Pick
– One (1) Digital Download of “Firedancer”

“Lies” was the first track released from the debut “Jeremy Edge Project” in June, and the lyric video can be seen here:

“I wanted to do a heavy, slow blues in the vein of “Tea for One” by Zeppelin. Not exactly like that but a similar vibe to it. I wanted it to have the extended, bar room, blues jam type of feel and capture that on record. This song needed 2 guitars to do that!”.

For this track vocal duties were served up by vocalist Brandon Yeagley and additional guitars by blues guitarist master Josh Smith. While Brandon delivers a dynamic vocal performance, Edge and Smith trade leads. Smith, opens the song with a hook on the Telecaster and sets up the ending dueling jam at the end of the song. Edge providing contrast with the Les Paul and wah wah to Smith’s signature tone.
