Classic Album Sundays and The Old Vinyl Factory celebrate the 25th anniversary of Iron Maiden’s “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son” with two listening sessions at The Old Vinyl Factory on September 28th and 29th in aid of War Child.
“Seventh Son of A Seventh Son” – Iron Maiden’s seventh studio album – was inspired by Orson Scott Card’s “Seventh Son” and sees the band marry heavy metal with progressive rock, incorporating a prominent use of synthesizers and moving away from a more traditional metal sound.
Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy will host the event, and guest speaker Dom Lawson of Metal Hammer magazine will provide the “musical lead-up” playing records that either inspired or were contemporaries of “Seventh Son”, and the story behind the album. Attendees will also have an opportunity to check out an exhibition featuring exhibits from the EMI Archives which chart the history of The Old Vinyl Factory, previously EMI’s pressing plant.
The star attraction – the album itself – will receive an uninterrupted vinyl playback on a kick-ass HI-FI system with front end provided by Sonata Hi-Fi and Funktion One loudspeakers provided by 10 Out of 10.
Refreshments will be provided by heavy metal bakers Bake in Black
This event will raise funds and awareness for War Child’s amazing work with children living in some of the most dangerous conflict affected countries around the world including Iraq, Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Central African Republic and Syria.
Dates: Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th September, 6 – 9pm
