LADY IN BLACK
Released on 20/09/10Paul Di'Anno, was best known as the first Iron Maiden vocalist (1978 - 1981). After his time in Maiden he has been involved in many different projects including many solo albums including: Battlezone, Di'anno, Killers, and Paul Di'anno.
On these the first two of his solo records Di'anno continues with the aggressive NWOBHM sound he created with Maiden on his first album without Harris and Co. 'Fighting Back' features tons of OTT speed metal rockers. Songs like Warchild and the epic The Land God Gave To Cain are some of the finest heavy
metal songs Di'anno has ever done. Aswith many other NWOBHM bands, some of the guitar work emulates Thin Lizzy axe attack.
The second album also included on this set is more commercial than the band's debut, Despite this, the band just doesn't seem to be able to get away from the club sound and break out with a bigger sound like Maiden’s "Piece of Mind" or Priest s "Screaming for Vengeance." Di'Anno's gritty voice sounds as strong as ever.
