(Best Buy Collector's Edition)
Make no mistake, I'm a Slash fan. The guy writes and plays music I like, and he has proven it in multiple bands. While I'm sure it's more the record company's decision than the band's, this is the third version of this release that I've purchased. There was the original, then the "deluxe" with two bonus tracks, and now the Best Buy Exclusive Collector's Edition with a bonus acoustic show and a live DVD. Seriously, is the industry hurting so bad that they have to fuck the hardcore fans into purchasing the same music three times? Apparently so.
Hard work and determination can always pay off, if there's talent to match it. That is clearly the case with Crucified Barbara. These classic rock ladies have worked tirelessly for over a decade; self financing their work, their tours, their promotion and their lives all the while growing stronger and stronger as a band over the years. With the release of their MIDNIGHT CHASE recording, the band finally gets rewarded for all their hard work. Now signed with metal powerhouse label Nuclear Blast, Crucified Barbara sees the opportunity staring them in the face, and there's no stopping them now from grabbing at metal's proverbial brass ring. PITRIFF caught up with Mia Coldheart of the band to talk about all the things going on with them - both past and present. Here's what Mia had to say!
