Blitzkrieg embark on their latest European tour this September starting in their hometown of Newcastle on the 7th and working their way through Germany, Switzerland, Italy and France. It is the band's only tour this year and interest is high.

Everyone of course knows Blitzkrieg for Metallica covering their self titled 1981 anthem but the band have picked up many fans through their own albums; from their first, 'Time of Changes' in 1984, to the latest release 'Back From Hell', which saw top marks in all the major European and world wide press.

Blitzkrieg, fronted by Brian Ross, who is also vocalist for his other cult Metal act Satan, features long-time guitarist Ken Johnson and now Brian's son Alan, on 2nd guitar.

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.
