A project two decades in the making, British Lion is led by Steve Harris, best known as the bassist and primary songwriter for heavy metal legends Iron Maiden.
This outfit is a bit more commercial sounding than Maiden — think of ’70s proto-metal acts such as UFO and Deep Purple as departure points. However, Harris has mentioned in recent interviews that the next British Lion album, rumored to drop early this year, is heavier than its 2012 debut.
$29.50, Friday, Jan. 24, 7 p.m., Rock Box, 1223 E. Houston St., therockboxsa.com.
