The band will be releasing British Steel: 30th Anniversary Edition to commemorate the album's original recording and you can pre-order it now clicking here.
Chris Jericho will speak with the band members about British Steel's impact on not only heavy metal, but all of rock music and how the ground-breaking album maintains its edge 30 years later.
Columbia/Legacy will issue two separate packages on Tuesday, May 11, 2010: British Steel: 30th Anniversary Edition will be available through standard retail and digital outlets, while the British Steel: 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition box set will only be available by clicking here.
British Steel: 30th Anniversary Edition features the 2001 re-master of the original 36-minute, nine-song album (plus two bonus tracks).
Also included is a DVD which combines a live 16-song concert filmed in August 2009 at the Seminole Hard Rock Arena in Hollywood, Fla., with a 30-minute "Making of British Steel" interview that includes all four original band members.
British Steel: 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition will be available exclusively by clicking here.
This is a three-disc package containing the same two discs -- the album with bonus tracks and DVD -- plus the DVD's live audio on CD.
Breaking the laws of heavy metal music at the time, British Steel is regarded by many bands and artists, including Chris Jericho and Fozzy, as one of the most influential hard rock albums of all time.
