New Release Tuesday – 9/5/06 – I’m back and so is Iron Maiden!

This weekend was extremely busy at work so I didn’t have much time to put the headphones on and enjoy the new Motorhead album.

My fantasy football draft was Saturday. I’m defending champ so I showed up, trophy in hand, to start my title defense. That killed Saturday until 2pm.

My daughter’s birthday party was on the holiday so we spent the afternoon Saturday and most of Sunday running errands and preparing all the party fare. Not much time was left for some good old fashioned Metal and blogging.

So, after a few days off from the computer and stereo, I’m back. I scored the new Iron Maiden album, A Matter Of Life And Death, for $11.88. Not a bad price for a CD/DVD combo. I passed on the CD single for The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg for $8 as I always seem to acquire the Maiden singles on Ebay a few months later at a better price. I also passed on Blind Guardian’s new album because the last couple of albums have left me cold.

I ordered the new Taz Taylor BandWelcome To America from NEH Records. It should be in any day now. Any album with Graham Bonnet on vocals is going to be good so i expect Taz Taylor to be, the reviews have been excellent.

Hopefully, I will have a Motorhead review up by the end of the week. I’d also like to get a Maiden review out too while it’s fresh in everyone’s mind.

The NFL season starts Sunday and I will be at Gillette Stadium watching my Patriots destroy the Bills. I’ve been a season ticket holder since 1992 and going to the games on Sundays are a great way to unwind and pig out on barbeque. I’ll post some NFL and Fantasy Football throughout the season.
