Metallica in Singapore WorldWired Tour 2017 ,22 January 2017
Singapore Kallang Indoor Stadium


Metallica starting their WorldWired Tour in Asia means we get a show with fresh songs.
Unfortunately they do not play more of their new awesome album.
Unfortunately still no Spit Out The Bone live

But still Singapore got SIX new songs just now. (YEAAHHHHH!!)
And FIVE from the Black album. FIVE? YES! FIVE.  (BOOOOOO !!!!! but dont worry I can still remember the lyrics to the songs played from this album LOL!!)

Halo On Fire sounds so good as a live song. Together with Atlas Rise and Moth Into Flame, I think these three songs are going to be new live classics.
The five backdrop LED monster screens are awesome. I first see the usage of these style of screens tilted in different direction screens when I saw ACDC play live using similar screens, but Metallica brings the usage to a new level. 

I was sitting down, bought the "peasants" price level seats,(Price of a Metallica front section standing ticket in Singapore is equivalent to 4-5 Iron Maiden shows front section that I can see if I backpack for the coming 2017 tour), but I had no complains and really enjoy watching Metallica fans having fun from where I was.
Its awkward sitting down to see a rock show. LOL!

Metallica plays for about two hours.
I think no Fuck/Fucking or any adult words use at all by James thru out, except for the "cut this shit off from me" and James was saying (Metallica) Family regularly. LOL!
Metallica has really grown mature and I like it.
Most important there is no "baby" word by James. I cringe every time when James utter that word from what I saw on youtube or something.

Jump In The Fire happened when James notice a front row fan with the monster mask.
So James ask him to wear it.
And then he starts the tease.

I think the place is nearly full? about 11000-12000 fans in the indoor stadium.
3rd Singapore show ever.
2nd time they played this venue. The other time was outdoor to a much larger capacity 30-40 thousand fans.

I have no issues with the sound just now, but it becomes a habit of mine to always compare other bands sounds, to what Maiden soundman can do.
(Donington 2016, Black Sabbath was playing in the pouring rain and I was further away and still they have such pristine super loud and clear sound, and although Maiden has a good sound on the next day on the same stage, I can sense a clear winner being it the same stage, same huge field, 24 hours different.)

So whats more to say of Metallica live just now? Go and see them on this tour.
Its fun, its a mass singalong karaoke session except for the new songs. LOL!...

I did not have time to see the Merchandise stand.
I arrived quite late.
I was actually working today even though its a Sunday, but on morning shift. So I can save a precious day leave. LOL!!



<<<More live reviews from wherever I may roam to see my favourite bands thousands and thousands of kilometers from home are here - http://deaf-angel.blogspot.sg/search/label/live%20review
About 99 shows are reviewed. LOL!!
OK, I got to cut down. Ticket prices are getting more and more expensive. LOL!!>>>



Thats about it. More photos down scroll till end.










Salam Semua, baik aku type ulasan dan pendapat aku dan merapu merapu merapek meraban aku pasal Metallica main persembahan konsert untuk album baru mereka dengan World Tour bermula di Asia, dan giliran Singapura  pulak kat Stadium Tertutup Singapore 2017 ni dan apa je la tangan aku gatal nak taip.

Tangguh kang buat repot ni terus tangguh terus ke laut.

Anyway, yang kat atas omputeh tu aku cuba tulis lain2 kandungan, so thrill sikit la,
tak la sama boring kan cuma alih bahasa je...
Bacalah dua2.. 

Korang kerja shif mesti cam aku, kalau ada apa2 hal, kena cek rota kerja, hari apa hari apa dan apa shift ye tak?
Aku cek, alamak Metallica nye show aku kerja la,(Tapi ni bermakna aku konfem ada kat Singapore la, cam tu hari Malex main, aku off day so aku ada kat Malaysia la.. haha, gigit jari aku dah lama tak tengok band Malex main... best dorang). 

Ok Metallica ni, cek lagi, Selamat kerja pagi. Kalau tak, dua pilihan, ambik cuti dan ni membazir ok, membazir ok ambik cuti untuk Metallica, atau pujuk kawan kawan aku tukar shift dengan aku, tapi hari Ahad siak, dorang pun ada life ye tak. haha.

OK OK, so aku sampai lambat, sampai je, aku mesej kawan aku yang duk tempat lain " EH?? BUAT KALLANG WAVE LA!!!", hahaha, kira buat Mexican Wave.
Sapa tengok Iron Maiden tu hari 2011 tempat sama paham la apa aku cakap, yang diri kat bawah semua tengokkan yang kat tempat duduk buat WAVE.
Best la kan kalau tak boring siot.

So aku takde la nak tengok tshirt jualan kat merchandise stand.
Tapi kat MRT stesen sebelah tu, ada beberapa brader tengah jual tshirt Metallica.
Gitulah betapa kuatnya pukulan tarikan Metallica.
Mana ada kat Singapore orang jual tshirt bootleg sebelum konsert.
Kalau nak, gi Peninsular, lekas2 beli band tshirt korang nak gi tengok.
Tapi jarang la, kira takdelah bootlegging kalau band lain. Ni la dia pukulan Metallica.

So, setlist kat atas tu, memang aku harap Metallica main satu album penuh, non ado, cuma 6 lagu je. Spit Out The Bone takde. 
Wahh.. penuh siak staidum.. rasa seats semua sold out. Yang diri tu rasa nye macam sold out jugak. Ye la, mesti kena ada lobang lobang sikit kan, untuk kecemasan.

Aku ingat aku je "cheap skate" beli tiket murah.. Ala... MAT SALLEH semua ramai jugak duk seat murah. hoho.

Tapi semua fans ok.. lagu lama hidup. Seronok tau cam gini. Semua orang happy happy.
Aku tengokkan je yang minum beer, aku cam nak hasut, suruh lempar beer kat bawah. HAHAHAAH.
Temptation ok. Puaka paling besar gi rock konsert ialah balik rumah baju bau beer.
Tapi biar beer, jangan air kencing. HAHAHA. OK.... aku cakap ni pasal Donington, Hellfest ni semua tempat puaka ada perangai otak wayar kejap kena kejap tak kena.

OK OK, cerita pasal persembahan ye... apa aku nak cakap, ni Metallica.
Dah tahu dah show dorang macam mana kan.
Setlist tukar2, serious tadi tak tahu lagu apa dorang nak main, memang kecewa la lagu Avril Lavigne dorang perform - FUEL.

Battery takde, Creeping Death takde. 
Aku kurang sangat dengan Black Album, TETAPI, aku angkat tangan, aku sing-along lagu2 dari Black Album tadi.
Wherever I May Roam, dah berapa tahun tak dengar, tapi heran, aku boleh ingat segala lirik balik.
So maknanya ni lagu evergreen ye tak?

Aku kecewa, aku tak tengok liriks album baru lagi, kalau tak boleh nyanyi lebih.. ni aku tahu Atlas Rise je dan ulang2 Halo On Fire... tak rock la kan tak tahu lirik.

OOooo Halo On Fire, live dahsyat. OK lagi sekali DAHSYAT. Huruf besar.
Start slow James sorang2... baru lagu masuk.
Lagu ni kan dia punya time change. Giler ah..
Terbaik lagu ni.
Atlas Rise dah macam lagu2 lama dah respon peminat ye.
Moth Into Flame , Kirk nye gitar yang paling best lagu ni. Aku syok sendiri masa lagu ni.

Masa Jump In The Fire tu memang seronok tengok apa terjadi.

Lain2.. biasa2lah.. 
"Scanning The Scene In Singapore Tonight", 
Gimik2 Nothing Else Matters yang kamera zoom kat pick James Hetfied masa Nothing Else Matters.

Aku kira tadi, 90% tengok pentas, kira apa la aku nampak dari jauh, dan 10% tengok penonton.
Seronok ye rupanya kalau kita duduk then kita tengok fans berdiri.
PUNYELAH HAPPENING, KECOH, HURRAY HURRAY.

Aku sampai wassap famili aku foto dari atas tu, aku cakap aku jeles, aku nak diri hurray huray kat bawah cam dorang jugak..
tapi apa kan daya, tiket Pen A, puaka... buncit la perut ko promoter.!!!!!

Memang rasa menyesal duduk, tapi apa nak buat. Tiket berdiri mahal nak mampos.
Aku biasa jugak tengok persembahan2 kat Indoor Stadium ni, sapa tak tahu, sini la tempat nya XPDC main headline act dua dua band lineup Brutal dan V6 selama tiga jam, dan SEARCH hanya sebagai pembukaan je. Double Trouble pun main sini.
Iron Maiden pun...
dan aku kira balik, apa show yang aku duduk eh tengok masa kat Kallang Indoor Stadium ni, ooo Dream Theater zaman Octavarium, Deep Purple untuk show album apa ntah, dan paling aku menyesal aku beli tiket murah dan sepatutnya aku beli tiket paling depan sekali. Masa Roxette main untuk XXX celebrations (bukan blue eh, tapi 30 years celebrations). Terbaik. I love you Pers and Marie. . haaha.
Take care of your health Marie... 

OK lagi apa aku nak cakap..

OOOO... Rob Trujilo ke hapa nama dia, dahsyat bass solo dia, dia kan macam suka kangkang2 kan?
tapi takde la tadi...
Aku suka lak tengok dia tadi. Kot dia dah kena lahar. "Sila kurangkan kangkang tu boleh tak?"
Sakit mata aku.

So tadi, wahhh dia nye bass solo, sudah cam bersimpul simpul tangan dia. Pengsi bass solo dia. Aku suka. 10/10.
Akhirnya aku rasa aku terima dengan sakit hati, Metallica dah kembali empat. HAHA.

Aku suka tengok Lars dengan James, sama macam Jon Bon Jovi, dorang menampakkan usia dorang makin meningkat makin matang. Aku suka. Aku suka tengok Lars tadi dan permainnya pun cam Lars yang aku minat. 10/10.

Kirk dengan gitar White Zombie dia... 10/10

dan of course James Hetfied. Superman, best rhythm player macam Nordin Search, cewaahh.. 10/10

HAHA... ye la ye la, aku mintak maaf aku kutuk2 Metallica tak agak2 dulu.

ONE memang cantik ye, persembahan cahaya dan laser dia, dan background video sojer sojer tu memang terbaik. (Si Baju Hijau sedang bertugas....)..

Dah tu je la kot...


sapa minat nak tengok review2 ulasan tak senonoh aku tengok band dondang sayang dan dangdut cam Metallica dan seangkatan,
sila gi sini http://deaf-angel.blogspot.sg/search/label/live%20review
ada 99 review gitu..cehhh




OOOO GUNS N ROSES lepas ni, End of February... aku tak tipu AXL ROSE tiptop.

ok Aku dah cek GNR ialah hari Sabtu, aku dah cek minggu tu aku off tiga hari. WOOO HOOO.

Tapi tiket mesti banyak lagi nye, mahal nak mampos. 
Kalau aku gi, aku tunggu hari Sabtu pagi baru aku beli. HAHAHA. Tengok cuaca dulu. HAHAHA.

Sekarang musim hujan kan... kot Axl Rose demam kang... nyanyi 10 lagu berhenti..
Beli tiket mahal nak mampos, dengan nak keluar dari tempat tu publik transport..
tu tempat Jin Bertendang tu... Changi Exhibition Centre tu...
Sapa korang tengok Metallica kat sana berapa tahun lepas tido kat pantai Changi? haha.
Buat cam aku, Metallica start main last song, terus keluar naik bas.
So dapat kejar last MRT train.
So GNR ni last song kalau Paradise City kan? Aku paradise city dalam bas la..
tak sanggup ok tido tepi pantai kalau miss last bas dan seterusnya last MRT.
Anyway, yang ni kali dorang dah plan lagi baik la kan, Lauretta Alabon dan geng.

Kalau hujan ribut tak mau gi la... HAHA. Dengar Estranged kat rumah je la...
Jadi la kan? boleh buat bunyi ikan DOLPHIN. Kueeekkk Kueeekkk!!!


OK OK... ni semua adalah warm up je la kan, warm up untuk...
backpack dan tido kat airport dan dalam bas ekpress....
Maiden UK 2017.. wooo hoooo...
(tiketless sistem, so aku takde tiket physical kat tangan, bahaya besar sampai sana kena reject ID, hahaha).





"OUR ARMIES IN ENGLAND, IRELAND, SCOTLAND AND WALES"
"FOUR KINGS OF METAL FOUR METAL KINGS"

haha.. ok ok wrong band.



METALLICA COME BACK SOON, FASTER GO PLAY KUALA LUMPUR!!!! haha. So the whole audience just now can go again. LOL!!

This House Is Not For Sale (Japanese Version) & (Live London Palladium Version) - Bon Jovi.

Aloha~~~ First in Bahasa Melayu and then in English. My opinon, review, ulasan dan apa je la.
Photos of the packaging are scattered.




Macam aku cakap, bila album ni keluar, aku tak baca review2 ulasan2 kat mana2, aku cuma tanya Portdy. Pendapat dia cammana? Dari situ aku start dengar sample sikit kat tenet sebelum beli.
Mass media ni, tulisan2 carik makan dalam apa bentuk cetakan atau edaran,
aku kurang percaya kalau benda tu aku dah suka.

So, apa aku buat? aku tanya mereka atau masuk website2 yang yang memang pendapat peminat. Peminat setia, peminat yang sanggup ikat perut keluar duit beli yang asli apa mereka suka, susah2 beli dan dengar atau gi tengok Bon Jovi main.

So, pendapat aku..
ni album ialah terang2 album terbaik Bon Jovi sejak album Keep The Faith.
Dan pasal aku paling suka album Keep The Faith..

Besar kemungkinan ni ialah album terbaik Bon Jovi pada aku. MUNGKIN.

Semua lagu gerek dan tersangat gerek, susah nak cakap ayat ni, tapi gitulah kenyataan nye.
Baik lagu rancak, baik lagu perlahan, baik lagu cinta, atau bukan lagu cinta...

dan kepala Bon Jovi ni, iaitu Jon Bon Jovi aku rasa sedar diri dia dah tua. 
Banyak jugak lagu dalam album ni ialah pasal kehidupan dan pasal peredaran masa.

Mungkin sebab tu aku boleh terima album ni dan semua lagu nya. Pasal memang macam sial kan kalau asyik ingat lagu muda dan main giler je kan tonggang terbalik.
Kena slow down sikit.

Kalau korang perasan, album ni asal nya 12 lagu tapi campur 5 lagu bonus, dan heran nya lagu2 bonus lagi sama best giler malah lebih best.
Dan aku tangkap pressing cetakan Jepun cd ni ialah kerana lagu tambahan Touch Of Grey.

Lagu ni ingatkan aku kat Uban kat Rambut. Itulah bila aku dengar lagu ni, hati aku cakap Touch Of Grey tu ialah uban kat rambut.


So sebagai peminat aku suka Jon Bon Jovi dan Dave Bryan dan Tico Torres dah sedar dorang dah makin berumur sangat.
Dan sebagai peminat aku suka Bon Jovi dah kembali lima orang secara rasmi dalam foto2 booklet kat cd dan jugak dalam senarai pemuzik kat dalam cd inlet tu.

Maknanya makin pintu untuk Ritchie Sambora kembali makin susah. 

Semua lagu gerek, tapi ada beberapa lagu yang memang outstanding.
Lagu ingatkan aku kat Chris Isaac - Labour Of Love.
Lagu2 slow lain pun gerek macam Real Live dan sebagainya.

dan semua lagu rancak pun gerek, dan ada memang gerek abis Roller Coaster semacam happy dan Goodnight New York contohnya, tapi All Hail The King, ialah satu lagu pasal satu sukarelawan kat dapur Bon Jovi yang masak dan kasi makanan kat mereka yang tinggal kat jalanan, orang susah, orang merempat, orang kebulur kat kawasan New Jersey.
Aku suka lagu All Hail The King ni, aku suka... Hail The King Whose Fortune is his Soul.
So sapa yang nurani dan jiwa dia yang kaya, tu la Kings sebenarnya.

Betapa tepat sekali lirik lagu ni ceritakan yang benar.

So, kalau korang minat Bon Jovi, ni ialah album terbaik. Kalau tak dapat cetakan Jepun pun pastikan ada sekurang2 nya 17 lagu kat cd yang korang nak beli tu.

Anyway, album Burning Bridges sebelum ni seumpana album untuk lepaskan dari ikatan Contract, dan ada lagu Bon Jovi main balik iaitu We Dont Run.
Aku rasa dorang suka sangat lagu ni kot.

OK, yang sebelah tu ialah album Live At Palladium London, ni rakaman live masa Bon Jovi buat parti mendengar album baru.
Tu jam, album ni belum dikeluarkan, dan bukan mereka mainkan playback album studio, tapi mereka main live 15 lagu.
Terbaik ok ni album live. So, dua2 album ni dahsyat.
Kalau yang live tu ada 7 orang tu ialah pasal live dorang pakai 2nd gitaris dan seorang percussionist sekarang.

OK dah tu je. Hingga berjumpa lagi. Photos dan sikit Anecdote kat paling bawah...









I was thinking Bon Jovi should come out with a great new studio album after all the turmoil and my own dissapoint at the last few albums.
Some songs are good but as albums, I feel a bit let down.

But this album is awesome, This House Is Not For Sale. The Japanese version has 18 songs and all of them are either good songs, great songs or AWESOME songs.

Even the Live Palladium London version is as good or maybe superior as Bon Jovi plays live is always fun and rocking.

I was just wondering, last few years when Bon Jovi plays Asia, or South East Asia region they seems to be going the motions with a setlist of about 2hrs or less.
And the ticket prices are astronomical and really a hindrance for their true fans.

I mean for other bands, this is forgiven but not for Bon Jovi. This is a party band that should be going and going.

This is the setlist for Birmingham (Villa Park Stadium) setlist for 9th June 2013)
and the tickets prices ere reasonable.

I mean, for 2017 Metallica in Singapore, the price for front section is about the same as FOUR TIMES watching Iron Maiden front standing for UK.
And Iron Maiden playing Home Ground Matches will never be the same like anywhere else.

A great backpacking memory, a nice warm up with fellow Bon Jovi fans before the all hell break loose "up front section standing" for some Maiden shows in Europe.

And I wish Aston Villa got promoted a.s.a.p. Amazing stadium and amazing environment surrounding the stadium.


1. thats what the water made me
2. you give love a bad name
3. born to be my baby
4. raised your hands

7. its my life
8. because we can
9. what about now
10. we got it going on
11. keep the faith
12. amen
13. bed of roses
14. captain crash and the beauty queen from mars
15. we werent born to follow
16. who says you cant go home
17. rocking all over the world
18. i'll sleep when i'm dead
19. bad medicine/old time rock n roll/bad medicine
encore 1
20. dry county
21. wanted dead or alive
22. in these arms
23. happy now
24. have a nice day
25. livin on a prayer
encore 2
26. always
27. blood on blood



The stage was like from one corner kick flag to the other side of the corner kick flag. LOL!!!!!

3 hours, 27 songs 
with the best Bon Jovi song ever Dry County somewhere in there.
People were crying during In These Arms, such a special song this one.
And I was joining the mass choreography participation of Raised Your Hands together with like 40,000 fans? or more.. LOL!!

Phil X was on lead guitars (Ritchie Sambora just start his I WANT MORE MONEY TANTRUM during that period), and I have no issue with Phil X playing that night though I think the whole stadium hearts is in their mouth during the guitar for Dry County. LOL!!!

The 2nd encore of Always was a vote by how thunderous the stadium reaction is when Jon was calling out slow songs titles.
Always was so much louder than I'll Be There For You during the vote..
The females seems to like Always.
LOL!!

contoh berfoto naik taraf masjid dgn bumbung kaca, kipas gergasi etc (Upgrading of Mosque example) & INCOMINGS Maiden #104 mag , Xmas card & Palladium Live version of This House is Not For Sale

A short one in English, and a full RAMBLING in Malay Language Bahasa Melayu.

Hi all, lets detour to something different, this is an example of a mosque upgrading in Singapore, where an open area space which though provides natural ventilation and sunlight, will expose the congregation to extreme weather conditions such as heavy rain is transform to something very comfortable with a sunroof and a monster fan.

But of course all these need money, but a strong united community will slowly get it done. Even if take years and of course there are lots of mosques to be upgraded and continued to be build across the island.

Rock N Roll will resume next post, I will show for those who have not seen the new Iron Maiden FC Mag #104 and the Xmas card design for 2016.
And also both the Japan pressing and live versions cds of This House Is Not For Sale next.

BYE - ALL PHOTOS IS BELOW.. Scroll downnnnn..



Salam Semua,  (satu post yang aku terpaksa mengaku, buat aku rasa panas dan kurang selesa, kulit rasa macam disiat-siat).

Walaupun ni blog takde perasaan, tapi dari pengamatan aku ramai di luar sana suka baca, carik info atau dengan apa tujuan pun, carik benda2 pelik contoh macam pasal kipas gergasi untuk masjid, dan sebagainya.
Sampai sekarang yang aku post berapa tahun lepas pasal kipas gergasi untuk dewan masjid tu orang masih masuk blog ni, dah 2 ribu lebih dah masuk terus ke posting tersebut. haha. 
Aku membebel pasal makan habib noh lagi, dah 3 ribu lebih orang terus ke posting tersebut.
OK la, harap aku takde la kasi info salah bila aku bebel tu.

Tak sangka pasal ni blog ialah untuk aku syok sendiri dan cuma korang sikit je yang tahu kewujudan dia, tapi timakaseylah haha.

So...
Hari ni aku sambung balik posting yang berkenaan dengan "masjid2 yang ada ceritanya sendiri". Yang aku ada link nanti kat bawah. 

OK, ni ialah contoh lagi satu di Masjid Al-Muttaqin di Ang Mo Kio Singapura, di mana, dari masjid ni dibangunkan, kat dalam bangunan masjid ni ada satu ruang besar yang design dia ada kawasan lapang, takde bumbung.
Memang nyaman, memang cantik, tapi jemaah exposed, terbuka kepada hujan lebat contohnya, bila mana time masjid penuh sesak contoh sembahyang jumaat.

Jadi masa masjid ni upgrading,dorang tutup atas, buat sunlight roof transparent jadi sinar matahari boleh masuk jadi terang secara semula jadi, jimat elektrik bil, siap ada tempat pasang lift jadi sapa yang uzur dan apa sebab pun boleh pakai lift naik tingkat2 atas.
Lepas tu letak satu kipas gergasi lagi.

Aku tahu dan konfiden, satu hari nanti, bila harga eskalator murah, aku rasa banyak masjid di rantau ni akan pasang eskalator pulak.

Korang jangan gelak ketawa, besok lusa korang pun akan jadi tua bangka kalau korang umur panjang tak mati2 lagi, so korang yang nanti nak kena naik eskalator2 kalau korang gi mesjid besok lusa.
MUAHAAHHAHAAHAHAHAHA (Ketawa Jin).

Ni semua perlukan berjuta-juta-juta juta wang. Tambah dengan banyak masjid dan madrasah semua nak kena upgrading sentiasa untuk ikut peredaran zaman, tambah dengan masjid baru..

Dan bila aku baca sokkabar madrasah2 nye makmal sains (science laboratories) semua sentiasa kena upgrading, then ni bukan satu benda remeh temeh untuk kekuatan komuniti Islam masa depan.

tapi bila komuniti, walaupun minoriti, walaupun semua orang biasa je, rakyat biasa je bersatu padu.

Positive things will happen. Dan ni sesuatu kita kena belajar.

Ingat, masjid untuk semua, dan korang geng tonggang terbalik, jangan pedulik kalau sapa2 berlagak pandang sinis, atau pandang korang atas bawah bila korang masuk masjid.

Masjid ni bukan mak bapak dorang punya. nak tegur tegur baik, jangan jeling atau pandang sinis hanya dari pakaian atau apa2 je la kat rambut atau kulit.

Pedulik la orang tengok badan kita ada apa cop dan design ke, pakaian kita apa ke..

Tu semua dorang nye hal, kita buat hal kita. 

Dorang mati, adakah semua geng baik je yang junjung mayat?

Geng jahat jugak yang tolong. So.... this is something to ponder for everyone.



PHOTOS of the finishing soon Upgrading of Al-Muttaqin Mosque in Ang Mo Kio, Singapore - focussing on the open outdoor area (huge foyer) that is now sun-roofed, a lift installed to go to higher levels for the disabled and old people, those huge monster fan installed, among others.

- Those who are not familiar, its not uncommon for congregations to sit on chairs for prayers for those with injuries, older folks who are not strong enough or for whatever reasons.

You can see the canvas greens on top so I guess lots more need to be done.














.

.

Even inside the Main Hall of the mosque, a new monster fan is installed.



The exterior is remained the way it was.


And this is how the open space looks like before. ( I googled this below picture).






So thats it...

UNTUK SAPA BERMINAT.. aku ada about 40 postings pasal "masjid2 yang ada tarikan sendiri".
gi link sini untuk sapa berminat
klik - Kalau boleh bila mati saya tak mau masuk oven selamanya

paling kecoh aku pernah buat post pasal Masjid kat Belgrade tu la..

aku ada cerita tak, kat situ, ada satu mamat ni, ooo kayyy, kita berbual Ayam Itik la, muahahaaha,

tapi dia sudah cerita kat aku dia dah jumpa Nabi Ibrahim dalam mimpi dia,

ye la, dia cakap takkan nak tipu kan? Korang tengok orang Serbia Islam nye cerita. Dahsyat2 ok. Dorang memang dah sikittt sangat kat kota Belgrade. Dari 300 masjid zaman Uthmaniyah terus jadi SATU.

Bila dia tanya aku apa aku buat sorang2 kat Serbia?

Aku cakap aku backpack gi tengok Iron Maiden main. DIA TAK PAHAM!!!

hahahaha. Dia mana tahu ni semua, dan aku ok je with that. Aku pun apa lagi "berlakon la" haha, PIJAK SEMUT TAK MATI TERUS. haha. Padahal rasa bahang tu ada la panas kan. haha.

ok ok bye.


INCOMING..




THINFS both Japanese pressing (yes Japanese are still pressing and I hate it when I ripped to mp3 formats its all Japanese text LOL!!!), and the spectacular live from Palladium version.


&
this really spectacular design of magazine 104.
I hope they will follow for this format of designing for each page for at least the next few issues.

ooo and the cute pretty xmas card.



(show-off session for those who have not seen the above items soon).


Tahun lepas bila aku tunjuk kad krismas Iron Maiden Fan Club hantar untuk tahun 2015,
aku dituduh aku ni Kristian oleh seorang pembaca. Aku harap dia masih baca blog sendu ni. haha.

Aku berterimakaseh kat dia, pasal adalah sentiasa aku dihina dikeji dipandang serong dan jadi sampah masyarakat mereka yang berlagak dan merasakan diri mereka berstatus tinggi, berpengaruh dan beragama,
maka sentiasa peringatan buat aku. So continue panggil aku kristian ok bro.

Nanti aku cakap sikit pasal orang Melayu ni suka panggil orang lain benda2 gini hanya kerana mereka fikir mereka ni dah bagus sangat.

A sample problem of backpacking 10,666km alone for rock n roll (Contoh masalah bila kembara sorang2 untuk tengok band rock kegemaran aku)

Happy New Year To Everyone the Whole World.
Yes Sorry Belated...


Coming May, I envision this crazy idea of a tight budget alone backpacking, travelling by buses and trains and travelling across Scotland, England and Wales which is all ten of thousands KM from where I am, to watch Iron Maiden plays different places, experiencing Maiden in different ways people react to Maiden and environment and check out the places too.

Its already a hectic and mind-boggling. I have no idea if I can save up enough funds on time, and if I can take time off work for less than two weeks, provided I still got a job then and all the other serious things and responsibilities of my personal and family life.

Then, Kiss announced a European Tour at the same time.
(I am not deeply affected by the Ace Frehley returning rumour, as I have no problem with Tommy Thayer.
As long as Eric Singer is on drums, I would be very happy
If Ace returns, means scope of songs would be limited to Ace era, I wonder if Ace can play Bruce Kulick and Tommy Thayer years songs and I love Bruce Kulick era a lot).


What is a tight crazy "no sleep" schedule of travelling and checking out different places has now become more crazy. Not only will it be a mad rush, but I need to find a way to Munich after Maiden playing Glasgow, and then to Liverpool for Maiden again.

But life is about Travelling and exploring new things so its a gamble I got to take.
Its going to be a big risk travelling and I am always terrified of backpacking alone in Germany (GERMANY ALWAYS IS A VERY INTIMIDATING COUNTRY TO ME in terms of finding my own way taking public transport and long distance trains, and moving around without knowing their language, I dont know why I felt that way) to catch Maiden and Rainbow before,... but thats rock n roll in choosing to travel this adventurous and cheapest budget way and of course sleeping at airports .


WHEN I BOUGHT THIS TICKET.
I have to personally google myself just to confirm Arena Stehplaltz means STANDING.
haha...

Now I got two options...either
17th May Aberdeen show for Maiden
or
18th May Munich Olympiahalle show for Kiss

In between Maiden plays Glasgow 16th May & after Aberdeen Maiden plays Livepool on 20th May.

Munich means so much risk at IMMIGRATIONS, (UNRELIABLE) CHEAPEST BUDGET FLIGHTS, because surely travelling from Scotland to Munich is not much cheap options in such short time period of travel... ,AND MORE COST though.

My head says dont take risk travelling in such short time to Germany and out again with me intending to see Maiden in Scotland, Wales and England, and my heart will always says I cannot get enough of Maiden LOL!!
but then Kiss has always been a part of my life.

I have to make a decision soon. LOL!!!


Hi Semua,

Aku ingat 2017 ni, kalau ada masa diizinkan buat blog, aku nak cerita selalu la, pasal Makanan, apa aku makan, apa aku makan yang sedap... haha.

tapi harap adaa time la...

ok nari cerita pasal masalah aku...

Pasal, aku kan backpack untuk tengok band2 dan cuba gi festival muzik kegemaran aku sebelum dorang semua dah takde lagi, aku backpack memang secara ikat perut, dengan penuh kesyahduan, PAKAI SELIPAR JEPUN DENGAN BANGGA NYA, 
<
(THIS SENTENCE START SOUNDS SO UNRIGHT SO I DELETE IT HAHA)>yang kembara nak tengok band rock kegemaran dengan budget seciput walau masalah aku ialah aku lapar nasik, menggelupur ok takde nasik sehari dua aku dah menggelupur rindu nasik...
aku tak malu untuk mengaku aku tidur kat airport di mana aku boleh kawal budget seciput aku dan airport ialah tempat paling selamat dan penuh facility nak bersihkan diri dan ada Praying Room dan apa je la,
dan aku suka travel dari satu tempat gi satu tempat naik bas waktu malam, pasal maknanya aku boleh tidur dalam bas, dan jugak masa dalam bas express adalah lagi satu tempat selamat untuk korang kembara satu orang.
Aku suka macam gini malam aku hurray-hurray tengok Iron Maiden, siang aku pergi tengok bagaimana orang hidup, macammana orang pergi kerja, pergi sekolah, naik bas, naik tren, orang beriadah, orang jual-jual,

Korang tahu? Aku suka pergi tengok pasar masa aku backpack..
Aku tak pergi tempat shopping ke hapa ke, aku suka street scenes..
Aku pastikan aku tengok cammana orang beli jual sayur, ikan... aku suka...

Aku spent berjam jam tengok orang kat street dan kat pasar, pasal aku belajar pasal kehidupan.

Aku tak malu, in fact aku suka famili aku pun kalau dorang mengembara macam aku pasal belajar macam2, dan dapat pengetahuan macam2, tapi of course la, dorang semua ada lah proper tempat tidur semua kalau mana pun dorang berada. Aku travel sorang untuk Iron Maiden, tak yah la bazir duit. haha.

Aku suka prinsip pergi tempat lain = Be a Traveller , Explorer and Learn To be a better human being - and never, anything else in mind.

Jadi aku ada angan-angan Mat Jenin, aku nak buat UK Tour merata Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, merata England tengok Maiden main dalam satu masa.
Tapi memandangkan ni perlu belanja banyak, dan kerja pun nyawa-nyawa ikan sekarang ni mana ada lagi periuk nasik besi untuk majoriti kita mencarik nafkah, dengan nak ambik leave yang tak seberapa, dengan entah leave approve ke tak, dengan nak mintak tolong kawan kerja tolong cover, dan itu baru fikir pasal kerja dan carik nafkah, belum lagi banyak faktor dalam hidup dan prioriti dalam hidup.,
maka aku tetap dengan tekad aku sokong Iron Maiden dan apa pun band lain yang aku minat yang main secara kebetulan pada waktu yang serentak, 

So aku dah plan la, nak tengok Iron Maiden lima kali tahun ni kat Wales, Scotland, England la jadi aku dah plan aku cuma nak ambil dalam 12 hari atau 13 hari termasuk segala flight pergi dan balik,

tapi, tiba2 KISS umum European Tour.

dan untuk sesuaikan dengan rancangan aku, pasal tu jam pun nak masuk bulan puasa, 
aku dah sambut puasa tahun 2016 dengan buka puasa masa tengok ACDC, BLACK SABBATH, RAINBOW, IRON MAIDEN dengan keliling semua keadaan giler babi huru hara, aku dah standby kurma dalam poket,
jadi aku rasa dah cukup la aku pengalaman tak dilupakan tu semua, 

maka aku tengah konsider KISS main dekat Munich Jerman sebagai tempat aku nak tengok KISS main, tiket dah standby dah hahah...
Tapi macam aku cakap kat atas bahagian omputeh, JERMAN ni mencemaskan aku,
dah dua kali aku backpacking Jerman dua tahun berlainan untuk tengok Maiden main, dan jugak tahun ni Rainbow Ritchie Blackmore wujudkan balik,

tapi tu la, entah aku gi tempat lain aku ok sorang2, kat Jerman aku kejong.. pasal mungkin tulisan Jerman tu semua cemaskan aku kot..
dan dorang memang efficient tersangat jadi aku mudah cemas kalau kata aku lambat atau keliru aku akan ketinggalan keretapi jarak jauh dan sebagainya.
dan aku backpack ni iailah waktu dan masa sangat suntuk dan sikit sangat aku kena lompat satu tempat ke tempat lain,
dan setiap kesilapan aku buat dalam kesuntukkan masa bebrgerak satu tempat ke satu tempat maknanya aku akan keluarkan duit lebih yang aku tak mau keluarkan pasal untuk rock n roll peribadi ni, aku ikat perut tapi tetap nak rock n roll dengan tengok band2 kegemaran aku..

backpacking sorang diri untuk tengok band rock n roll beraksi dengan kesuntukkan masa dengan budget yang ciput adalah sangat menakutkan ok....

dah tu dengan nightmare, kalau sangkut, tak boleh balik, kena buang kerja...

(dan ni la terjadi dilaporkan waktu Iron Maiden beraksi di India, peminat2 Iron Maiden dari NEPAL, turun ke India dari gunung ganang Nepal mereka, dan mereka tahu bila balik ke NEPAL, mereka semua akan dibuang kerja, tapi tu la, kena buat pilihan dalam hidup kadang2 apa kita nak... dan mereka lagi rock n roll dan metal dari orang Melayu ye tak ??)

anyway...

aku punya KISS line up aku paling suka ialah zaman Eric Carr dan Bruce Kulick.

Aku punya anggota Kiss kegemaran aku ialah ERIC CARR.

Tapi Eric Carr dah mati sakit kanser...  


korang tahu tak, aku sampai skarang masuk Youtube tengok video2 Eric Carr beraksi. Aku suka dia ok dari aku masa budak sekolah.

Nasib baik sekarang peganti Eric Singer. Dekni pun dahsyat.
Gitaris aku ok je Tommy Thayer. Dia ni ialah DISIPLIN. Biasalah, carik makan kan.

Aku nak sangat tengok dorang main lagu the Oath.

Sejarah tahun 2013, telah buktikan bahawa, lagu ni KISS boleh bawak live. Kenapa ni bukan lagu carik makan aku pun tak tahu.
Pasal album Elder ialah album yang tenggelam sangat. Album yang terbaik tapi ramai orang tak paham.

NI KISS, bawak lagu The Oath masa tahun 2013 kat KissKruise.

Dengar apa Paul Stanley cakap masa start lagu ni..


liirik dia.. Audience kena support part masuk korus lagu ni kalau live ye, mati siak Paul Stanley lagu ni haha...
tapi ni tunjukkan lagu ni Kiss boleh bawak live dengan Tommy Thayer dan Eric Singer. Dahsyat Eric Singer lagu ni... aku suka sangat.



"The Oath"

Like a blade of a sword I am forged in flame
Fiery hot
Tempered steel fire-bright to the night I take
I fear not
Now compelled by something I cannot see
I go forth surrendering to history

Your glory, I swear I ride for thee
Your power, I trust it rides with me
Your servant, I am and ever shall I be

Through a dream
I have a come to an ancient door
Lost in the mist
I have been there a hundred times or more
Pounding my fists
Now inside, the fire of the ancient burns
A boy goes in and suddenly a man returns

I gave my word and gained a key
I gave my heart and set it free
There's no turning back from this odyssey
Because I feel so alive suddenly
And I wonder, is this really me?




OK lepas ni aku nak cerita pasal kesinambungan "masjid2 yang ada ceritanya sendiri"

korang tengok baru nak plan cerita pasal masjid, badan aku dah panas, cammana mati nanti masuk oven pun aku tak tahu.


seriously.

incoming - This House Is Not For Sale (Japan pressing)

When you like something,
you dont trust mass-market stereotype reviews and journalism.

Because these people got paid, its their job, not necessary they have the passion for the band or artist that you do, maybe they may have never spent money on that something you like.

So what do you do?

You always ask and read the opinions and reviews that matters - Fellow Fans, Supporters who spend money, to like something. Just like you.






Terus terang la, adakah korang yang minat bola, contoh minat team bola kelab2 pasukan2 dari negara2 Inggeris dan eropah,

adakah korang baca ke ulasan atau tulisan di suratkhabar tempatan?

Adakah penulis tu tengok ke tak tu game pun kita tak tahu ye tak?

Korang tentu lagi percaya cakap kawan2 korang atau ahli keluarga korang yang sama minat satu team, atau tengok youtube - FanTV dimana interviews dibuat dengan peminat2 yang baru keluar stadium.
Dorang kadang2 jawab memang berlainan betul dengan pendapat2 penulis2 yang dibayar gaji.



Sama dengan muzik atau kugiran yang memang aku minat, aku kureng sangat baca tulisan2 penulis yang memang kerja periuk nasik mereka tulis.

Aku lagi percaya kan pendapat peminat2 muzik, yang sanggup keluar duit beli album2 atau beli tiket konsert.

Contoh Bon Jovi baru keluar, aku tanya Portdy.
Portdy jawab "semua lagu dia boleh dengar.

OK, maka best. Maka aku test dengar, pakai youtube beberapa lagu kat laptop pakai speaker Soundblaster. Terus beli.

Tapi korang jangan tanya Portdy apakah album kegemaran dia untuk Bon Jovi.

MENYAKITKAN HATI AKU!!

hahahahaha



REVIEW SOON...

GOODBYE MetalHammer/ClassicRock Magazines??? & the audio bootleg for ACDC Manchester Etihad Stadium June 2016 dan eksiden bas kat Muar aku baru tahu tadi, dan aku baru lalu jugak direction lagi satu sebelum tu..

First in English then in Malay Language.

Something really horrible and very sad news in the LITERARY world.
At least to me.



Teamrock the owners for two of the UK magazines that are in favour of rock and heavy metal music (and certainly these two magazines are very pro-Iron Maiden) are in serious financial trouble.

All the staffs are out of job, and without salary for the month of December.
And seems the publication of Metal Hammer and Classic Rock is no more?

Lets hope something positive will appear for the staff, and lets hope another company takes over the magazines and long may both magazines reign in the future.


Maybe its readers like me who are partly to blame.

I seldom buy magazines, I even now limit my spendings for musical releases, I have completely stop buying vinyls also.
I had decided that before all my favourite bands retire or stop playing, I want to see them play as much as possible backpacking to Europe if possible for at least until Maiden retires. LOL!!

If I buy a Magazine, surely its because it has a Maiden content that is worth buying and maybe worth keeping.
I have not much storage space, so I think I need to remove the pages that I like, and throw the rest of the magazines away. (Work In Progress).

Anyway, a quick go thru of my collection and I found some of my Metal Hammer & Classic Rock Magazines with Maiden on the cover.




Again, lets wish all the staff who had provide us so much delight, information and entertainment writing, reviewing about our favourite bands will have new jobs soon.
I think there is a worldwide online appeal to collect funds for them,
and like I say, hopefully another company would buy over the names and continue the legacy of these two magazines.

OK next,

Whenever possible, I would like to listen back, and try to collect audio recordings (bootlegs) of shows I attended.

If the shows are in Singapore and Malaysia, I would be most of the time smuggling a recording device to bootleg the show for my repeats listening,
but, if its outside of Singapore & Malaysia, most of the time I would be going MENTAL...
And I expect other tapers to do the job for me. LOL!!


I was thinking back of the ACDC show with AXL Rose that I attend for 2016 Manchester Etihad Stadium which I did backpacking for.

I know there is Flac recording of an audience recording which is quite good in quality.
I saw it in EBAY. Its for UU$40. OK, I have no money for that.
So a quick go around the internet and I got it for FREE. LOL!!

I believe its the same recording. Not bad really, there was 75,000 crazy AC/DC fans that night, so the taper is really doing well LOL!!

This is on Ebay...




Its 1AM, I need to be ready for work at 5AM, yes Christmas day and its a work day for me.

I am listening to ACDC Manchester 2016, the taper does a good job, and it does bring back my memories of that night.

The audience was amazing. One of the photo I took that night.
I had forgotten what song haha.






I wont be going out of my way to see ACDC again in the future, but if our paths meet, I will be there again.

I hope they play Heatseeker and Problem Child next time. LOL!!!!
Yes, I love Heatseeker. LOL!!! Very fast. LOL!!


My full photos and how to go to Etihad, and review and whatever is here

Salam Semua... Nanti... besok lusa tulat akan datang, aku akan cerita kat korang, suasana surreal yang memang terjadi kat sepanjang North South Highway pada malam 23 December dua hari lepas.
Memang hujan lebat sepanjang panjang, banyak hal kenderaan..
Bus aku naik, stop kat Yong Peng, mekanik cek alignment brake ok.......
Aku sampai kat destinasi aku Larkin,
tapi bas Alisan JB Sentral ke TBS tak sampai.

Aku sedih sangat dapat tahu eksiden tu. So far 14 meninggal tapi memang malam tu macam "surreal sangat". Tu ah bas driver bas yang aku naik boleh sampai panggil mekanik cammana tu?

hujan lebat, mekanik basah kuyup masuk bawah bas cek brake.
Hormat aku kat bas driver yang bas aku naik. He is a responsible man. Mungkin, dia pun nervous malam tu. 
Nanti la lain kali k...


OK,

Syarikat Teamrock yang beli Metal Hammer dan ClassicRock berapa tahun lepas dah kena ambik tindakan mahkamah,
Semua staff tak dibayar gaji bulan 12. Tapi ni latest aku baca kat tenet, dah berapa puluh ribu dah peminat2 majalah dua ni dah kumpul, derma kilat nak kasi kat staff staff ni semua, dah la krismas untuk dorang.

Harap Metal Hammer dan ClassicRock akan terbit semula secepat mungkin , tentu ada syarikat nak ambik alih brand ni dua.

OK,

aku teringat pasal aku gi backpacking tengok band rock bulan 6 lepas kat Europe, 
dan cam setiap show aku pergi, aku cuba carik bootlegs peminat rakam,
so aku teringin nak dengar balik show malam tu yang aku pergi ialah ACDC...
memang tiba2 teringat gitu...

dan antara aku pergi menengok ialah ACDC main kat Etihad Stadium. Dahsyat, 65 ribu? 75 ribu peminat Hardcore ACDC malam tu, sampai kat paling belakang semua hurray-hurray tonggang terbalik. HAHA

So aku teringat, aku takde bootleg malam tu, aku ada tape, tapi macam aku cakap kat atas, aku dalam keadaan hurray-hurray dan berdengung pasal aku tak tido dah sejak abis kerja terus naik flight terus tukar kat Abu Dhabi terus sampai Manchester, buang bag kat backpack nye tempat, terus naik train gi stadium MAN CITY, dah la security dah pergi congkong buah kana jeruk cina aku, 

Security paling bukit la, tapi aku tak terkejut la kan, macam sial nye football team.

dan jugak faktor bulan Ramadhan, tak silap aku, aku buka puasa masa lagu "IF YOU WANT BLOOD YOU GOT IT", aku buka puasa makan kurma dalam keadaan huru-hara.

So, aku gi la carik mana2 rakaman bootleg terbaik, then aku perasaan ooohh yeah, ada label yang print bootleg release malam tu tapi mahal la.

So aku carik rakaman sama, so aku jumpa free. Nak cover, buat sendiri la... haha.


HIGH VOLTAGE! HIGH VOLTAGE! HIGH VOLTAGE ROCK N ROLL!!!

Aku suka foto atas tu, bila big screen tunjuk audience.

masa aku snap pakai handphone keadaan kelam kabut tu, Angus dan Axl gerak different direction pulak tu dan dua dua dalam foto.
