Check out the Australian band Maeder and their video, Business In Me. This song is from the band’s 2007, Self Titled CD on Locomotive Records.
The Limit is a three piece band from New Haven, Conneticut. Their debut CD, Reinventing The Sun, pulls its sound from many of the Limit’s influences. On this CD, I can hear a fusion of sounds that includes Rush, Led Zeppelin, as well as a few others.
The Limit has a good classic rock sound. For a trio, the music on this CD is quite good. In fact, it is far better than I could have ever expected. I could tell from the very first listen that the songs on this disc translate quite well. Mark Daniels’ guitar work is quite solid. He also has a solid vocal range, which works with this style of music.
The production on Reinventing The Sun isn’t quite what it should be. I found the production quality a little thin. Reinventing The Sun doesn’t do The Limit the justice they deserve. I don’t know if something is missing from the way this mixed, but I thought the overall sound was a little too low. A few tweaks of the equalizer, and I was able to improve the sound somewhat, but I could not get it perfect. At times, I thought Daniels’ voice should be at the forefront, but it gets washed out by the music at times.
Reinventing the Sun is a solid start for The Limit. This CD shows that this band has loads of potential, and I expect big things from them in the future.

The “SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME — WORLD TOUR 08″ was inspired by Maiden’s recently released DVD, LIVE AFTER DEATH (New Door Records/Ume). Filmed and recorded over four spectacular nights at Long Beach Arena on the “Powerslave Tour” in 1985, this has long been a benchmark for rock concert videos and live albums, and the CD remains one of the biggest-selling live albums ever with sales in excess of six million worldwide. With the video having been largely unavailable for many years, the fan’s massive interest in this legendary concert continues to this day with the DVD debuting at No. 1 on charts around the world (including The UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark and Finland), as well as No 2 on the Billboard USA Chart and in Canada.
This tour revisits the band’s history by focusing almost entirely on their classic 80’s period in both choice of songs played and the stage set, which is based around the legendary Egyptian Production of that ‘Powerslave Tour’ as portrayed on the Live After Death DVD. This will arguably be the most elaborate and spectacular show the band have ever presented. Furthermore the band intends to bring along for this summer leg of the tour the colossal mummy of Eddie, as featured on the Live After Death DVD, along with various other elements of the show that would not fit on their 757 on the first leg of this tour, which included the shows at the Forum and Izod Centre. Sadly no jumbo has a door big enough to fit in such a massive and imposing monster!!!
Says vocalist Bruce Dickinson ; “We are all greatly looking forward to getting back to see our fans in places like Texas, the South West and Seattle where we haven’t played for quite some time. And for this leg we will be able to bring along all Eddie’s toys which we couldn’t get on our plane during the first leg. We are all having a great time on this tour and really can’t believe the excitement it is creating round the world and the huge numbers of people who are turning out to see us. It makes for a really very exciting time for all of us, fans and band alike”

“The album is very traditional-sounding,” guitarist Eric Peterson recently told Decibel magazine. “The ideology of what we’re doing is like ‘The Legacy’ . But the musicianship’s a lot better, so it’s like ‘The Gathering’ . As most bands record their first, second and third albums, they’re developing, developing, developing… until they’ve got their sound. Then they get worse. As a rule, you get good when you’re starving and start slipping as soon as you’re eating well. We never really made it to the big time. But, then again, we didn’t fail. Because we’ve always been on that borderline, we’ve never had to make the kinds of compromises that end up killing so many bands. As we see it, we’re better off doing what we do best, especially since things seem to have turned full circle. Kids even have long hair again.”
TESTAMENT recently recruited Paul Bostaph (SLAYER, EXODUS, FORBIDDEN, SYSTEMATIC) to play the drums on new CD. The group was previously rehearsing and writing new material with British drummer Nick Barker (CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR), but Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and international work visa issues have prevented Barker from continuing to be involved in the project.
Bostaph, who was a member of TESTAMENT for a brief period starting around February 2004, had previously played several live dates with the group in 1992 and appeared on the band’s 1993 live EP, “Return to the Apocalyptic City”. He also toured with TESTAMENT in 2006.
BRITNY FOX has signed a new record deal with CHAVIS RECORDS and a new management / booking deal with LANE PRODUCTIONS .
We are recording a live cd / dvd combo in the U.K. on May 17th during our world tour.
A new studio album is being written and will be recorded this year when the tour is completed.
*** In case you’re wondering what the new album will it sound like here’s a hint :
This ain’t your momma’s BRITNY FOX . Think “Bite Down Hard” but even better !!!
The new lineup kicks major ass and the new albums will be kickin’ some serious ass as well.
