2013 -    

October 5, 2012 : Power Slaves will become MADE IN IRON


That's right, the band will leave its name Power Slaves
to officially become MADE IN IRON.

MADE IN IRON was the name of Power Slaves' project
to rebuild Iron Maiden's legendary World Slavery Tour 1984.
That project was launched in 2009. Since then we often tough that
MADE IN IRON would be a better name for our band than Power Slaves.

First, MADE IN IRON is a strong, straight-on-target name.
It is very close to Iron Maiden and an precise/intuitive way to tell what we do.
Also, it is more simple to remember
and to be written properly by anyone that talks about us.
Finally, MADE IN IRON is a great name to build a striking, powerfull logo.

Now the names of our two different shows will become :

MADE IN IRON presents
The Golden Years of Iron Maiden


MADE IN IRON presents
Live After Death

The Iron Maiden Experience 1984

A new website on a new web address is in construction.
The current website will stay available but eventually we will stop updating it.
New name and website will be effective january 1st 2013.

Everything else stay as is.
Same band, same lineup, same shows.

R.I.P Power Slaves

** Long live MADE IN IRON **



October 31, 2012 : MADE IN IRON'S succession is assured !

October 1, 2011 : Maxime meets Maiden

Hi everyone. Here are some pictures of Maxime (Power Slaves' drummer) with Iron Maiden in Québec City in 2010. Maiden played at Plaines d'Abraham that summer in front of 80'000 crazy fans. Maiden were housed at Le Concorde Hotel and Maxime used some tricks to reach them and then took some pictures with them. Enjoy!
 

Maxime also met Nicko in 2011 at his restaurant in Florida.
See the Bio section for picture.

July 18, 2011 MADE IN IRON will soon be back in town !!

We are visiting a couple of new venues in order to plan more MADE IN IRON shows out there.


Sherbrooke : The Granada offers excellent possibilities. The stage is just big enough to house our own giant stage. The venue has a cachet that fits with Iron Maiden's spirit. And there's more, the Granada is presently planning on acquiring new sound and ligntning equipment and this should be ready for early 2012.

Québec City : We visited many venues in Québec City and the Théâtre du Capitole stays as first choice. The stage is ideal to fully deploy the armament. The crowd filled most of the floor in 2010, and we expect it to be overflowing at the next show !

Montréal : After the succesful launch of Phase I of MADE IN IRON at Le Medley in 2009, we are now seeking a new venue to produce the show in Montréal. Club Soda is fine for our classic show The Golden Years of Iron Maiden but clearly it is impossible to deploy MADE IN IRON there. We are negociating with two major venues in Montréal and the selected one will be confirmed soon.


July 13, 2011 : New website for Power Slaves !

Welcome to our new website! At last we will be able to present, in our way and words, the information about the band, shows and everything else !

The new website will include many specific sections. Namely pictures and videos, as well as reviews, all the news and also the Making of MADE IN IRON. A very important section will be dedicated to thank everyone that has a part in our success, and links to everyone whom are close to Power Slaves. Finally we plan to add a section to communicate with our fans since we want to stay in touch with you guys and we are interested in any suggestion you could have. Oh, and there will be a 'fun' section filled anectodes because everything with Power Slaves is not all serious and many strange or hilarious things happen on the road !

This website is destined both to the industry and the fans. We will see that some sections are definitely oriented to promote our shows, while others are more to inform and stay in contact with our fans. Stay tuned and come here regularly, the website is under construction and will soon make giant steps ahead!



February 9, 2011 : New Drummer : Maxime Beauséjour

Many thanks to Mathieu Groulx for these 3 years of excellent and loyal service in Power Slaves. You are a solid grooving drummer and you brought a lot of positive to Power Slaves, whether on stage or your participation in various projects like the first MADE IN IRON poster. You will always be welcome at our shows... and parties! We wish you the best success everywhere!


Welcome Maxime Beauséjour, the new drummer for Power Slaves !

Maxime began playing drums at 10. It was... Iron Maiden music; and since, he has gotten closer to Nicko's playing everyday. He recently acquired a powerful drumkit identical to Nicko's on Live After Death. Nothing is left to hazard with Max : the spirit, energy, integrity. Seeing Max playing is like seeing Nicko live! Max McBrain listens to a prodigious quantity of live versions of Iron Maiden. An Iron Maiden fanclub member, he is a walking encyclopedia on the band. Maxime has been following Power Slaves for years, he saw our shows again and again at Le Medley and our videos on the Internet before being invited to join our team. He has also created an exceptional Youtube page (Close to 200 000 views in a single year!) where we can see him play much of Iron Maiden's vast discography : http://www.youtube.com/user/maxmcbrain666.
