Por si algún despistado no ha pillado lo del título, deberé explicar que la señorita de la foto es Lauren Harris, cuyo aspecto y gusto musical no son muy indicativos de su herencia genética. Quizás por la camiseta (que no se ve muy bien, hay más fotos en el enlace anterior) y el apellido (y el título del post) alguno ya haya adivinado que se trata de la hija de Steve Harris, fundador y piedra angular de Iron Maiden [wiki]. Aunque la chica parece que se ha deshecho de gran parte del bagage musical de su padre, eso no la ha privado de realizar alguna actuación conjunta.
Y ya que estamos con los Maiden… vía Blabbermouth.net:
On October 11, IRON MAIDEN fans the world over will have something new to get excited about as the newly re-launched Restless Records releases «Numbers from the Beast: An All Star Salute to Iron Maiden», a tribute to the legendary band. The album, which features MAIDEN‘s own Paul Di’Anno and marks Restless‘ return to its metal and punk roots, is produced by Grammy award winner and tribute album pioneer Bob Kulick (KISS, METALLICA, AEROSMITH), along with Brett Chassen, and features appearances from current or former members of IRON MAIDEN, KISS, AC/DC, MOTÖRHEAD, ANTHRAX, DIO, JUDAS PRIEST, TESTAMENT, TWISTED SISTER, EXTREME, WHITESNAKE, SLAUGHTER, HELMET, DOKKEN and many others.
«It’s a fitting salute to an awesome band and may be the best tribute I’ve ever produced. I really like what we’ve done to these amazing songs, and more importantly, the band approves,» says Kulick of the album.
«Numbers from the Beast» features 11 classic IRON MAIDEN tunes revamped in honor of the band’s 25th anniversary. The final track listing is as follows:
- Run to the Hills
- Wasted Years
- Flight of Icarus
- Fear of the Dark
- The Trooper
- Aces High
- 2 Minutes to Midnight
- Can I Play With Madness?
- The Evil That Men Do
- The Wickerman
The cover of every official IRON MAIDEN album has featured a zombie called «Eddie.» Eddie has been painted by artist Derek Riggs for 20 years. «Numbers from the Beast» cover art was naturally painted by Riggs and is a must-have for any MAIDEN fan.
«Numbers from the Beast» marks the first release on the newly revamped Restless Records. William Hein, current president of Rykodisc and former head of Enigma Records, co-founded Restless in 1985 as a punk and metal sub-label of Enigma. Restless became a stand-alone label after Capitol–EMI acquired Enigma, and was subsequently acquired by Rykodisc in 2003. Now, back with a new sound and logo, Restless returns to its roots with the MAIDEN salute, as well as an upcoming reissue from California punk outfit 45 GRAVE.
