Iron Maiden, Trivium, Lauren Harris - Who needs MTV when you could create something like this?
Well, to be honest I know who this girl is but never heard one single song of her. After listening to the first three songs it is clear this young woman knows how to rock and perform.
Too bad the quality of the songs is not that good. It is clear she has had a great opportunity opening up for her dad (Steve Harris, bassist Iron Maiden, red.) and good for her. But there is still a lot of practise to be done. With simple hard rock she manages to put on an acceptable show but it simply does not fit in front of Trivium and Iron Maiden. (Buzzin Hornet)
These youngsters can be described as show-offs in a positive way; this is because they can play! Their latest single 'Anthem (We Are The Fire)' is even sang along by various people in the venue and I was surprised by the support these guys had from the Iron Maiden fans. This wasn't the case when they were supporting Metallica earlier this year. When I look back to their set I can conclude these guys have got great opportunities this year and the qualities are there. So they have to get big soon, there is no way around it!
Also, my personal favorite songs of the album, Â‘The PilgrimÂ’ and Â‘The Reincarnation of Benjamin BreegÂ’ gave me goose bumps and emphasized my points even more. A positive vibe brings the songs to a higher level. And right when I thought that the ambience in the venue was decreasing fast, all the songs of A Matter of Life and Death were played and it was time for some oldies, starting with my personal favourite Â‘Fear of the DarkÂ’.

|Nice review dude, I sure had a great evening. Eventhough I also wanted to hear some other songs (but the setlist was already known so no reason to complain)|

|Nice pictures again! Especially that last one of Steve, where it seems as if there are coming some HUGE hairs out of his armpit|

It was an awesome evening! Definitely worth the four hour drive. I never heard a single thing of Miss Harris, but she got my attention drawn from the moment she was on stage, both visually and musically
Trivium was nice as always, the new album has really proven they are more than a "normal" band...
Then the Irons themselves, what can one say after a maiden gig? great ofcoarse, the whole album sounded nice and although I would have liked some more classics, the news of the 2008 summer history tour compensated that
Awesome night, awesome bands

Too bad I couldn't be there...
