With the support of the book, EP and live show, there is no question that the Metal on Ice project will bring the stories of Canadian hard rock and heavy metal to life.  Fans are encouraged to stay tuned for updates as the project unfolds via www.metalonice.com and Facebook.

This is such a treat to take a step back to these classics in Canadian Metal and metal in general but to get this sent to me to review is an honor -the singers have not lost their ability to sing their hit songs.
As of October 9th they had reached their goal to make the concert for tomorrow night a success and an actual event ,not sure if this event is going to be recorded either audio or even better would be video but we shall see.

I shall leave you with some of the videos of the music that is on this album.
Each of these videos should be remastered and put out together in  a collection.

                          Killer Dwarfs-Keep The Spirit Alive

                                       Lee Aaron-Metal Queen

                                  Helix-Heavy Metal Love

                          Headpins- Don't It Make You Feel?


                            Coney Hatch-Hey Operator
                            (No music video found for this song, 
                            live performance from 2010 instead.)



                            Kick Axe-On The Road To Rock

These songs are great then and even better now with todays technology in the recording of an album, this is so crisp and it hopefully will sell well.
There is a book available on the Canadian Metal scene of the same name.
You can order the book below:

                         Metal On Ice-Book from Amazon.ca
