Irene Ketikidi is currently rehearsing 50 songs for a new show... here Irene enjoys a little jam session at NAMM... sound is low because of the sound police who patrol to make sure no one plays are too high a volume

Crowd pleaser "Rambler" played on my Charvel with XVive pedals at the Namm show this year - many thanks to Julia Kosterova for shooting this, you're a star!!!

Anna Greta Giannotti, Elisa Garbo,Ely Garbo: Diamond Beast - The Number of the Beast - fan filmed

Thanks to our fan's club president, Manuel Dossena, for this unofficial video recorded during our last show!

DIAMOND BEAST (a project born in 2008) represent the first and the only "all female" EUROPEAN tribute to the most famous heavy metal band: Iron Maiden. After some changes the actual line-up is on stage from october 2011. Thanks to the solid live experience that brings the girls to play all over Italy in a lot of rock clubs and festivals, Diamond Beast are able to make a unique live show, linking entertainment and adrenaline without missing technical or musical aspects. In 2010 the girls played at Women in Rock Festival in Holland and they came there again in 2011 for a mini-tour. Diamond Beast played also at GNZ Festival in Slovenia (july 2011) and at "Maiden Day" in "Rock n' Roll Arena" in Italy (may 2012).
