“Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea, for the Devil sends the Beast with wrath because he knows the time is short…”
On 9 November 1979, a little known band from East London released 5000 copies of their first EP ‘The Soundhouse Tapes’. The songs ‘Iron Maiden’, ‘Invasion’ and ‘Prowler’ were pivotal in what is now dubbed the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. That band was Iron Maiden, and in just a few short years they had conquered the planet, selling out arenas worldwide as part of the now legendary World Slavery Tour 84/85.
Just like The Beast, Adelaide’s premier Maiden tribute Children Of The Damned is coming back. They have returned, and they’re ready to deliver the best of the Beast live at the Bridgeway in February. From Churchill’s Speech through to Iron Maiden, Children of the Damned focus on the classic Maiden catalogue with a special emphasis on The Number Of The Beast and Powerslave albums as well as the World Slavery Tour itself.
Children Of The Damned features Joseph Marafioti’s thunderous drums with Luciano Tropeano recreating Steve Harris’s galloping bass lines. The twin guitars of David Marafioti and Ian Poole reproduce the classic Adrian Smith/Dave Murray sound, and the band will be joined for one night only by special guest vocalist Jason Sym Choon (The Red Skull, Live Evil, The Real Thing) who will take the energy and authenticity of the show to a whole new level.
In the Maiden spirit of keeping things “well in order”, Children Of The Damned are over the moon to welcome local Motorhead tribute Killed By Death as special guests. Chris McEwen, Karl Brooks and Jason Eyers-White will tear through a set of classic Motorhead, with Chris channelling Lemmy in a way that you have to see and hear to believe.
The Beast is back, so if you’re a Maiden fan, grab a ticket and get ready for a night of classic rock and metal at the Bridgeway.
“Scream for me, Adelaide!”
