Iron Maiden - Maiden Voyage (1969-70 uk progressive heavy rock, 1998 reissue - FLAC)
Saudações amantes de boa música, primeiramente desejo a todos "Feliz 2012" e naturalmente com muito rock'n'roll! Bem, vocês gostam de Iron Maiden? (ha, ha, ha...); eu particularmente acho o único álbum dessa banda inglesa do final dos anos sessenta, uma grande peça de hard/heavy e blues rock (ha, ha, ...)!
Reza a lenda, que o Steve Harris (mentor e fundador da banda inglesa de heavy metal) em sua biografia, conta que certo dia atendeu a um telefonema e ouviu uma voz do outro lado da linha, falando num carregado sotaque de uma determinada região da Inglaterra, alertando-o que o processaria por estar usando o nome de sua original banda! E foi dessa forma que ele adquiriu os direitos autorais de usar o nome Iron Maiden!
E naturalmente eu não estou falando da banda inglesa de Metal (por sinal, fantástica), mas sim da original Iron Maiden, que na realidade nunca lançou um álbum, pois esse cd que aqui eu estou postando, é uma compilação de compactos discos, singles, etc. Espero que desfrutem esse fantástico hard/heavy blusey rock album!
The band was formed in 1964, Essex, England with musicians - Barry Skeels (bass and vocals), Steve Drewett (vocals and harmonica), Chris Rose (lead guitar) and Alan Hooker (batera.
In 1966 occurs the first exchange of musicians , passing Steve Drewett (vocals / harmonica), Chris Rose (lead guitar), Tom float (rhythm guitar), Stan Gillem (drums) and Barry Skeels (bass).
Esgrove In 1968 Graham (guitar) plays the guitar. Still new li-neup and the band initially believed to Bum, featuring the following musicians Steve Drewet (vocals & harmonica), Trevor Thoms (guitar / vocals), Barry skeletons (bass / vocals) and Paul Reynolds (drums / vocals); presented in some local pubs, getting a quick rebound and recorded an independent compact Ballad of Martha Kent / God of Darkness.
In late 1968 the band changed its name to Iron Maiden, exchange drummer who happens to be Steve Chapman in 1969 and signed a risk contract with Gemini Records, releasing in 1970, the compact Falling / Ned Kelly that follows a line psychedelic and progressive sound with heavy guitars and distorted.
The contract would be for 3 years if the disc was successful and the band performs a short tour in Australia. The song Falling draws attention, especially for its low ridden and some guitar riffs reminiscent of a certain band of the same name.
In 1970 drummer Paul Reynolds returns and that the band released two more singles: Liar / Ritual, DC Ryde / Plague.
The good results of the compact makes the band grow in the local underground, having opened shows for big bands like The Who and The Amen Corner.
In 1972, before the conclusion of his first LP, the band mysteriously goes out of business. The only thing you know, about the musicians, after the end of the band is the guitarist Trevor Thoms, passed by Hawkwind (?), Where bassist Lemmy would be just Killmister skeletons and bassist Barry played in a band called Zions .
Steve Harris, in his biography, says that someone with a different accent of English called him in 1976 and threatens to sue him for he is using this name.
In 1998 the compilation CD out called Maiden Voyage by Hi-Note Music label, who described the band as "Archetypal Doom Metal", with all the singles released, including the music of the time that the band was called Bum.
In the CD booklet, show them a contract with Gemini Records and some posters, as well as photos and concert tickets, proving that they came before the current Iron Maiden.
Not the legendary wrinkly rockers, but an Earlier band from Basildon. Recorded between 1969 and 1970, this - their debut album, is a classic piece of early doom metal featuring the progression of spine chilling guitar Trevor Thoms. Also includes the (at the time) longest ever single and two tracks by Boom!
A welcome reissue. Not the Iron Maiden, but the much more obscure and Earlier outfit with the Same name.
The 'A' side to Their sole 45 is a lengthy brilliant guitar-led piece with a solo well Beyond the length of the 1970 single.They Were known to burn up until January 1970 and in March of the year PM same they toured Australia.
