Di'Anno DVD Arises in October

Former Iron Maiden frontman Paul Di'Anno will release a live DVD in October, he's confirmed.

The Beast Arises was shot in Cracow in April this year, when he performed alongside Polish bands Turbo and Scream Maker, employing the talents of Scream Maker guitarist Michal Wrona.

Metal Mind Productions, who’ll launch the title on October 6, say: “_The Beast Arises _captures a sensational show in a club full of an audience that would net Paul leave the stage. The DVD also includes bonus features such as an interview with the artist, a photo gallery and more. Full details will be revealed soon.”

The title will also be available in CD, double LP and digital formats.

Di’Anno last year announced he was “pulling the plug” on his career, but later changed his mind, saying he’d keep going once he underwent a knee operation. He’s currently working on a studio album with German band Architect To Chaos.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
