IRON MAIDEN's 'Trooper' Beer Will Come To The U.S. Market in Cans

As reported by Manchester Evening News, British heavy metal legends Iron Maiden will start selling their Trooper beer in a 500ml "Tall Boy" can in the U.S. next month.

Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson, who designed and developed the ale with Martyn Weeks, the chief brewer at Robinsons, said cans have advantages over bottles.

"Firstly, cans are easier to recycle, require less packaging, get colder quicker and take up less space in your fridge," he said.

"Secondly, cans don't break or smash, meaning they can be taken to venues, sporting events, campgrounds, beaches, and music festivals, where glass is not typically allowed.

"Thirdly, aluminium cans are excellent protection against light and oxygen - beer’s biggest enemies, so your drink tastes fresher longer.

"Done right, they’re great for our beer.”

300,000 Trooper cans will be made available in the U.S. beer market from January 2015.

SYMPHONY X - new album update for the holidays!

In true “no update until there's something to say” form, New Jersey’s progressive metal masters SYMPHONY X have been quiet as of late. Don't let the silence fool you, though; they've been busy. So busy, in fact, that the new CD is almost done!

Recording of the drums, lead vocals, rhythm guitar, and bass – a.k.a. the bulk of the as-yet-untitled new album - is complete. In the next few weeks, the keyboards, guitar solos, background vocals, and some miscellaneous odds and ends will be done, with the goal to have everything recorded by the end of the month.

SYMPHONY X guitarist & songwriter Michael Romeo comments: "The plan was to have everything tracked by Christmas, and we're pretty much on schedule. Things are moving at a good pace, and the songs are starting to come to life. More on that down the road a bit."
