interview_promo_voices_of_destiny_5

When it was time to interview the German goth/metal act Voices Of Destiny, I turned to guitarist/bandleader Chris Gutjahr and the new singer Ada Flechtner to hear what they had to say about their latest album CRISIS CULT. The album is a theme album, so obviously we talked about the story behind the album and how it was for Ada to join the band. The band once again worked with German producer Andy Horn in his Redd Room Studio. So naturally I had to ask them about that co-operation. I also took the opportunity to ask Ada what’s it like to be the only female in the band as well as a bit about her past. If you want to read more about Voices Of Destiny, check out the metal-rules.com archives.

UNLEASHED - Dawn Of The Nine

UNLEASHED – Dawn Of The Nine

Warriors!!! Hear the sound of the battle cry! With their new album Dawn Of The Nine, legendary Swedish trailblazers UNLEASHED have forged a modern death metal weapon from the blood and spirit of their Viking ancestors.

With their blend of melody and brutality, the warriors of UNLEASHED are credited as the founding fathers of the Viking death metal movement from their inception back in 1989. Twenty-six years later, they have managed to unite the spirit of the Viking tradition with their merciless riffs and epic choruses – melting uncompromising brutality with hymns to Odin.

Order your copy of Dawn Of The Nine in the format of your preference at the Nuclear Blast Webshop: http://smarturl.it/UNLEASHED-Dawn

Metal-Rules.com does SXSW 2015

May 3rd, 2015
by Robert Williams

SetWidth651-sxsw-2015-square

The SXSW festival merges music, film, art and interactive showcases from around the world and is held every year around the second week of March in Austin, Texas. For one week there are thousands of bands performing at any number of venues in downtown Austin. The streets are jam packed with thrill seekers, industry folks, journalists, tourists and pedicabs. In year’s past we have witnessed monolithic mega-star acts like Metallica, Motorhead and Voivod; not to mention up and coming acts like 1349, Sabaton, Steel Panther, Bison B.C. and Crashdiet who would all go on to establish themselves as forces to be reckoned with. The past two or three years have been sparse in terms of metal. By that I mean legitimate “metal” and not some new-age, dreadlocked, crustified gutter rock or faux-pas hipster rock. We were able to check out some showcases from Bremen, Germany’s crushing two-piece Mantar, the seventies inspired psychedelia of Philadelphia’s Ruby & The Hatchet, Belgium’s hard rockin’ speed freaks Speedozer, South Korea’s glam metal bad boys Victim Mentality and Austin, Texas’ own power metal juggernauts Immortal Guardian. Until next year enjoy the live clips and feature interview with Victim Mentality! Read the rest of this entry »

Roadburn 2015 – Tilburg Holland

Roadburn 2015 – Tilburg Holland

Roadburn-2015-12-November

Article and pictures by Arto Lehtinen

The prestigious Roadburn Festival is an extra pumped adventure into the sonic catacombs of the underground of stoner/doom metal from both known and truly unknown acts. The 2015 line-up  once again offered a wide range of metal/rock and other torturing sonic pleasures. As usual, there is always a curator picking bands to play at Roadburn. The two curators being Ivar Bjornson from Enslaved and Einar Selvik from Wardruna had been recruited to create the event for their own tastes under the moniker “House Of The Holistic”. Even though these Norwegians navigated the curator roles in the finest possible way, the fourth day has been named “Afterburner” being one kind of After Party type of day. Anathema had been booked to headline that day. Well, some people may cite it as a boring act and way to conclude the four-day event, but wait, the big surprise is on the way in the article. Approximately 2500 people had arrived to enjoy the art and the music at Roadburn in various forms.
