Album Release Highlights

CDs of note:
  • Joe Satriani's new album, Super Colossal, is due March 14.
  • Former Iron Maiden frontman Paul Di'Anno will release a solo album in Japan (I wonder if it was "Maiden Japan" as well) on March 25.
  • Dio will release the 2-disc Holy Diver Live on April 18. The first disc will contain his signature album played in its entirety live, and the second will contain a nifty array of live favorites by him, Sabbath, and Rainbow, including "One Night In the City", "Sign of the Southern Cross" and "Tarot Woman".
  • Mastodon will cover Metallica's "Orion" for a Master of Puppets anniversary CD to be distributed by Kerrang! magazine. Their major label debut for Warner Brothers, Blood Mountain, is due this summer.
  • Amid the controversy surrounding the leaking of various new Guns N' Roses songs on-line, their former guitarist Slash says Chinese Democracy will be released in March.
