U2 - The ultimate live band
The true greatness of U2 proves itself in its live capabilities. Like no other band in the world, the Irish have been able to stage themselves anew again and again over the past four decades, and have captivated even the most critical of audiences. While their studio albums are subject to strong qualitative fluctuations, Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. are still a power on stage today. eclipsed shows why and garnished the whole thing with concert memories of its authors.
Master Bruce receives eclipsed as befits a rock millionaire: in a spacious hotel suite at Potsdamer Platz. The 56 year old is anything but a typical representative of the hard'n'heavy genre: he wears his hair short, a polo shirt and jeans, is well-trained, humorous, has several university diplomas, talks like a waterfall and doesn't limit himself to promoting his current musical product.
With a total playing time of 92 minutes, "The Book Of Souls" is the longest work the Virgins have ever recorded. With "Empire Of The Clouds" it features the most epic Maiden song of all time and also surprises with piano, strings and wind instruments. All things that sound like heightened, late ambition. But far from it..
eclipsed: Bruce, a double album for the 40th anniversary of the band. The proof that Maiden aren't tired old sacks yet?
DEEP PURPLE IN ROCK
The Rebirth of a Band
An album carved in stone! 40 years ago the English band Deep Purple erected their own monument. Even considering the fact that the former hard rock heroes around Ritchie Blackmore and Jon Lord ruined their reputation in the middle of the eighties, the LP is still one of the top monuments in rock history. An album as massive and monumental as the Mount Rushmore to which the cover refers.
Crisis! Hard Crisis!
The next big thing
The new album is here! It's called "The Incident." As with every new recording of Porcupine Tree, the expectations of fans and critics are enormous: The band has long since earned a reputation as an innovator of art rock. Will the album be the next big thing? Or is it a lot of smoke for nothing? According to bandleader Steven Wilson, "The Incident" is one of the best things he has ever created.
