IRON MAIDEN RELEASE ‘EN VIVO!’ ON BLU-RAY, DVD, AND DOUBLE SOUNDTRACK ALBUM
Iron Maiden have just released ‘En Vivo!’, a new live Blu-Ray, 2DVD set, and Double Soundtrack Album. ‘En Vivo!’ was filmed on 10th April 2011 in front of over 50,000 ecstatic fans at the Estadio Nacional, Santiago during the Round the World in 66 Days leg of The Final Frontier World Tour, and captures a magnificent performance by the band, ardently embraced by the legendary Latino passion and energy of their Chilean fans. DVD Disc Two is a bonus disc containing an 88-minute documentary, BEHIND THE BEAST. A fascinating high quality “home movie”, produced entirely in-house by Maiden’s own Krew led by Andy Matthews, it reveals how to put on an Iron Maiden tour and what goes on behind the scenes at a show. The band have also just released “The Wicker Man” performance from ‘En Vivo!’ which can be seen here: http://vevo.ly/GCmISB.

In absence for more than two decades, we embrace new material from Leather Leone (Chastain, Rude Girl, Malibu Barbi) and drummer Sandy Sledge (Rude Girl, Malibu Barbi, Warbride, WeaponsVan) in their new project Sledge Leather.
The Sledge Leather debut album “Imagine Me Alive” was inspired in 2010 when Leather Leone called Sandy Sledge to collaborate on the Ronnie James Dio track “Egypt”for a demo tribute recording. Due to the overwhelming response for more material, Sledge Leather was born and were confirmed for Germany’s Keep it True Festival, April 30, 2011.
Sledge Leather entered the studio in 2011 to record their comeback album “Imagine Me Alive”, engulfing the listener in an onslaught of heavy metal with 11 cohesive tracks that resurrects a classic HEAVY metal sound with Dio’s former band members Scott Warren (keyboards), and Jimmy Bain (bass).
“We wanted to finish what we started with Rude Girl in the ‘80s – straight up heavy a** metal,” Sandy Sledge explains, “This album truly shows the different ways that Leather’s voice can create music.”
Leather Leone comments: “It’s great for me to finally have a huge say in what’s written and how it’s written. With Sledge, I feel like it’s writing with a soulmate — same beliefs, same ideas — because we are writing what comes to us naturally and what comes to us naturally is HEAVY music. This is metal. It’s just ‘metal.’ Heavy, metal.”
Respected industry friends Mike Varney and Monte Connor comment on Sledge Leather.
“Sledge and Leather are the most powerful team of female rockers on the metal scene today,” says Mike Varney, founder of Shrapnel Records.
”Leather sounds as great as she ever did and kicks even more ass than she did in the ‘80s!,” says Monte Connor of Roadrunner Records.
Sledge Leather’s album line-up includes: Leather Leone (vocals), Sandy Sledge (drums), Matthias Weisheit (guitars), Scott Warren (keyboards/orchestration), and Jimmy Bain (bass).
“Imagine Me Alive” is currently available from the band and soon through all on-line outlets.
