Evile have confirmed two special shows in Ireland this May with Metal titans Machine Head.

Evile have been chosen as the main support band to Machine Head for the shows, which take place on May 28th in Belfast and May 30th in Dublin. This will be the second time that the bands have played together, with Evile having previously supported Machine Head in Dublin in 2007.

Evile lead guitarist Ol Drake comments:

"Very excited to announce we've been given the honour to return to Ireland and warm up the, in my experience, always warm and welcoming crowd of the legendary Machine Head. I recently caught MH at Wembley Arena in London and it was a mind-blowing show; I couldn't believe how good they were. I already knew they were good, but that was just another level. It's going to be two great nights of Metal for Ireland. See you all there!"

Don't miss Evile with Machine Head at these shows:

May 28 - Belfast, Northern Ireland - Ulster Hall
May 30 - Dublin, Republic of Ireland - Olympia Theatre

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.
