October 3, 2014, 5 years ago
Original Iron Maiden singer Paul Di’anno has revealed that his new band, Architects Of Chaoz, will hit a German-studio in February for a May release of their debut album, The League Of Shadows.
Listen to a teaser of the new track "Rejected" below:
Di'Anno returned to Poland in April to play a string of live shows. One of the shows - at Lizard Club in Kraków on April 9th - was recorded for the purposes of the new live DVD release, The Beast Arises.
The material from the DVD captures a sensational live show in a club full of audience that would not let Di'Anno leave the stage for a long time. The release features mind-blowing performances of the classic material from the first two Iron Maiden studio albums, Iron Maiden and Killers, as well as songs by Killers, Battlezone, and, to top it off, a fierce cover of Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop” - all this making for an outstanding show that will leave no fan in doubt that the Beast has truly risen!
The DVD also includes an interview with Paul Di’Anno, a photo gallery and other extras.

Interview with Paul Di’Anno
The Beast Arises has been set for release on October 6th in Europe and October 7th in North America (via MVD). Formats available: DVD, CD and double LP.
This English singer is best known as the first vocalist to record with the iconic band Iron Maiden, from 1978 to 1981. Despite world-wide success lurking just around the corner, Di’Anno departed from the band by the fall of 1981 (he’s since admitted that he was partying a bit too hard around the time of his departure from Maiden). However, Di’Anno’s unique and extremely powerful voice had made a huge impression on rock music fans the world over, and also gained him an army of fans due to the sales of more than 20 million copies of the first two Iron Maiden albums (Iron Maiden and Killers) featuring Paul’s unique vocal talent.
In his post-Maiden career, Di’Anno has issued numerous albums, both as a solo artist and as a member of such bands as Gogmagog, Battlezone and Killers, and he has been featured (either as the artist or as a guest) on more than 60 albums released world-wide. As a confirmed icon of the metal genre Di’Anno is constantly gigging (with his various bands) throughout all of Europe, US, Canada, Central & South America, Australia, Asia etc.
Di’Anno has even had time to have his first full sized and highly acclaimed book/autobiography released entitled The Beast, which is a no holds barred journey through his turbulent and often disturbing car crash lifestyle, throughout the last two decades. Although he only appeared on the first two Maiden albums, Maiden’s work with Paul Di’Anno remains among metal’s all-time finest, and to this day those two albums are idolized by most metal fans and musicians alike throughout the world.
