  • Let's Wish A Happy Birthday to our legendary guitarist Mr. ADRIAN SMITH born February 27, 1957 is an English guitarist, best known as a member of IRON MAIDEN. In the early years Smith formed a band called Evil Ways including Dave Murray on guitar which was later renamed URCHIN, in 1980 he joined the Iron Maiden following a short-lived solo project called ASAP, he left Iron Maiden in 1990 and fomed a group called PSYCHO MOTEL. In 1999 he returned to Iron Maiden. Smith has current side project called Primal Rock Rebellion. His early influences included Johnny Winter and Pat Travis, which he claims made him a "Melodic player", rather than a "Speed merchant or shredder" as he was inspired by Blues Rock rather than Metal. Smith and Murray combined playing dual lead guitars, creating what All Music calls "The most formidable twin-guitar attack in heavy metal outside of Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing". He co-wrote many songs of Iron Maiden and provides the band backing vocals. He has used a drop D tuning in many songs. He received with the band Iron Maiden 22 Grammy Awards including El dorado Grammy Awards in 2011, Juno Awards in 2011, Ivor Novello Grammy Awards in 2010, Kerrang Awards in in the years 2005, 2013, 2016, and Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. And our legendary guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "THE WICKER MAN" by the legend himself. "The Wicker Man" is by Iron Maiden, released as the first single and opening track from their album Brave New World in April 2000. It is also the first single by the band since the returns of vocalist Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Adrian Smith in 1999. It was co-written by Smith, Dickinson and Harris. The title is inspired by the British cult film of the same name. 🎂🎸🤘

  • Aquí os dejo unas curiosidades sobre una de las portadas más importantes en la discografía de @ironmaiden
La firma estilizada de Riggs se puede ver como una insignia en el pecho de Eddie (la mascota de IRON MAIDEN). Eddie está posado junto a una señal de calle en la que pone parcialmente “Acacia”. Seguramente sea una referencia a la canción “22 Acacia Avenue” del disco “The Number Of Beast” (1982). Junto a Eddie hay un póster del álbum debut de la banda del año 1980.
A la izquierda del arma de Eddie, hay un “Ojo de Horus” ubicado en la parte superior de un rascacielos. Este antiguo símbolo de protección egipcio se menciona en la canción que da nombre al disco “Powerslave” (1984). Detrás de la pierna derecha de Eddie, reflejada en la ventana del Bradbury Towers Hotel International, hay un cartel que dice “Esta es una pintura muy aburrida”. Parece que Eddie tiene un símbolo de peligro biológico (Biohazard) en su entrepierna Riggs dijo: “Él tiene propulsión nuclear”. Al lado de la pierna izquierda de Eddie, hay un recipiente de plástico amarillo fijado a un poste de luz, que hace referencia a la portada del álbum de debut homónimo del grupo “Iron Maiden” (1980). En la parte inferior podemos ver un gato negro sentado que también aparece en la portada de “Live After Death” (1985). El texto “Webster” aparece impreso sobre lo que parece ser una pasarela elevada. Charlie Webster fue el director artístico de la discográfica EMI.
En la parte inferior, justo debajo de las piernas de Eddie hay una pizzería. Riggs dijo lo siguiente: “¿El cirílico encima de las palabras Pizza Hot? Creo que dice leche agria en ruso”. #ironmaiden

  • Time for another #boardgame review. This time we're playing HATE. Based on the beautifully dark comic "Chronicles of Hate" by Adrian Smith (of Games Workshop fame), the board game includes a ton of awesome minis from 8 different factions! (we've yet to paint ours) with which you fight quick skirmishes. Simple combat but doesn't lack depth, and though we haven't yet tried the campaign game we're stoked to run an office "tournament", eagerly bringing death and cannibalism into our day-to-day lives. #adriansmith #hateboardgame #boardgamereview #lifeatfatshark #gamedev #studio

  • Fun story: I just got home from dinner and basically I had to tolerate an hour and a half of bullying from my cousins because my little brother and his fat mouth just had to talk derogatorily about how much I love “this really loud heavy metal” and I was like kfhdhdidjfmpvi nO stop misjudging me and the really loud heavy metal. 
Ok
Like they were making fake growls and I was like NO THAT IS NOT IT AT LEAST NOT FOR ME odbdjdjdmlxoywjbx
And then I showed them some pictures of Maiden and I was like “see? This is my favoUrite band. They’re just normal guys, good, honest people with families and personalities and they just happen to play music that’s a little heavier than what you guys are used to. Cute boys with a lot of talent and skill and they happen to use that to their advantage. It’s pretty good and I would definitely recommend it.” And then everyone just dead stares at me for a bit and my youngest cousin is like “cute boys?” And I wanted to be like “shuT UP YOU LITERALLY THINK SHAWN MENDES IS CUTE JUST ✨LET✨ME✨BE✨”

  • Neste domingo resolvi relembrar o melhor show que tive a satisfação de ir. Iron Maiden no Rock in Rio 3, em 2001.
Em um tempo com uma dificuldade imensa para ir ao evento, após o show dormindo sentado em frente a um restaurante fechado até de manhã para pegar transporte e voltar para casa, sem celulares com câmera ou internet, dificuldade até para ter uma máquina fotográfica, mas com registros épicos na mente. Este show foi cercado de grande expectativa pelo fato de ser o retorno do Maiden ao Brasil após esta "bomba" nesta revista que guardo como recordação e história de outros tempos. Tempos mais românticos e que valorizávamos mais as coisas que gostávamos. #ironmaiden #uptheirons #rockinrio #rockinrio2001 #rockinrio3 #rock #heavymetal #music #nwobhm #brucedickinson #adriansmith #steveharris #rocknroll #festival
