Whitesnake´s “The Purple Tour” arrived here yesterday in two formats. Watched the DVD first and it was a goodie (did miss “You Keep On Moving” on it though). Well edited and strong material performed by good players. “The Gypsy” and “Mistreated” are two Purple songs that work very well here. Of course you get the Whitesnake classics too, the mix is very good.

Love the gatefold sleeve of the LP version.

Dragonhead arrives

The new Leaves´Eyes album “Sign Of The Dragonhead” arrived yesterday, and I ordered two versions as you can see. This turned out to be a good addition to the already existing legacy and they have come up with some really nice material here. “Riders On The Wind” is a bonafide classic. Could be a hit in my humble opinion.

Well done.

This is a good cover. It has a slightly futuristic feel to it, mixed with old school Disco. Russian edition of In Style (January 2018).

Happy days

Well Leave´s Eyes has always given us something special and this picture of singer Elina Siirala posing with the Limited Box Edition of the new “Sign of the Dragonhead” album popped up on Facebook a few hours ago. As you can see, the box in itself is pretty cool, but that shield would look good on any wall would it not? This will sell out in a heartbeat.

News spread around the Babymetal community weeks ago that Babymetal would be featured in the 2018 Calendar that was going out with UK publication Metal Hammer (issue) 304. I blogged about it myself thinking this was worthy of note for collectors everywhere. So when I bought this issue through a major online outlet in Sweden and received a copy without said calendar, I e-mailed the publisher and asked if it was for UK readers only and today I got the response that it actually was. You may live elsewhere and be jackpot lucky to get a copy with the calendar, but most likely you will not. This is disappointing, and from this moment on there is no telling what international buyers of Metal Hammer is going to get or not. We can certainly not trust the hype.

Sorry if I misled you to buy this issue, but now you know.

Reloaded

Nice to see that old school board games can still find a market. The 2008 Axis & Allies was rereleased in November and caused some excitement within the community. The box itself is pretty cool.
