Well known New Orleans earthquake purveyors Crowbar have launched a brand new music video for their single 'Walk With Knowledge Wisely'. Directed by Mike Holderbeast (Down, Eyehategod), this is the first of two videos we'll see from the band's all new album 'Symmetry In Black' that came out this week.

"For this video we decided to let the music do the talking. Working with Mike was a breeze and a pleasure. He has filmed many of our live shows and he is a true professional." says frontman Kirk Windstein.

'Symmetry In Black' was released on May 26th and is seeing its fair share of critical praise. Metal Hammer UK declares in a 9 out of 10 review: "Pound for pound, riff for riff, this is stone cold classic!" And Powerplay (UK) calls it "A blindingly good effort". Metal blogger masterminds at Metalsucks went as far to say "It's no surprise that it's excellent, but what is a surprise is just how excellent it is."

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.
