Hot Flashes

Posted on Thursday, May 02, 2013 at 14:07:59 EST

Class is in session! BraveWords has partnered up with Universal Music for the ultimate history lesson. And not only can you learn, but you can win! So let's look back at the treasured history of two vastly different bands and celebrate the roots of hard rock and heavy metal.

A new set of MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP live material titled Walk The Stage: The Highlights is out now (complete details here). The live collection presents a single disc highlight of the 2009 four-CD release, collecting together live MSG classics from five different shows including Hammersmith Apollo, Reading Festival and Osaka Festival Hall in 1980 through 1982. The set is now bolstered with the previously unreleased track ‘Lost Horizons’ from a 1980 Manchester Apollo show which didn’t appear on the original release.

For those more prog-minded, a new set of MARILLION singles on four CDs with a 12 page booklet (complete details here). This is a scaled down and revised version of the 2002 Marillion's Singles Box Volume 2 ’89-’95 packed with tracks only previously available on the now very rare Singles Box Volume 2 ’89-’95.

We've got copies of each to give-away now! To enter the contest you must "Like" BraveWords on Facebook and then send us an email to with the subject line "I Need A Crash Course In Metal". The winner will be chosen at random. Contest closes Monday, May 6th. Please include your snail mail in your email!
