Heavy Metal and the Classics

Heavy Metal and the Classics

A select audience came to a talk by IKC on the interface between Heavy Metal music and the Classics last night. Discussion covered such works as Led Zeppelin's 'Achilles Last Stand', Manowar's 'Achilles: The Agony and Ecstasy in eight parts' and 'The Flight of Icarus' and 'Alexander the Great' by Iron Maiden (artwork above). A more general discussion on the origins and varieties of Heavy Metal followed, fuelled by a few bottles of Iron Maiden Trooper Ale.
