A plethora of metal musicians, including Stu Marshall from Empires Of Eden, have contributed to the Metal For Cancer project.

Stu has good reason to support the project to raise funds for cancer research:

"Cancer has touched my family and devastates the lives of thousands. It's a small contribution we can make but something the metal community can get behind."

The project has been created by Richard Ososki (Ofsoski) and features the following Metal musicians:

SINGERS: Henrik Flyman (Evil Masquerade), Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica, Northern Kings), Mats Leven (Therion, Yngwie Malmsteen), Apollo Papathanasio (Evil Masquerade, Firewind, Spiritual Beggars), Snowy Shaw (Therion, Mercyful Fate, Dream Evil), Tony Mills (TNT, Shy), Silvio Masaro (Vanishing Point), Richard Ofsoski (Ofsoski, Sedition).

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
