Interview with Untimely Demise
June 22nd, 2016
One of the final lineup updates will leave us with only five announced bands but unfortunately starts with bad news as EYEHATEGOD had to postpone all their European appearances including Brutal Assault. They’ll be replaced by Latvian sludgy post metal TESA. Next on the lineup are the Hungarian Soulfly-style-epigones EKTOMORF and a handful of Czech bands. These however are no fillers, make sure to check them out! First double death metal combo lead by the same mastermind: BRUTALLY DECEASEDand HEAVING EARTH. The first are playing classic Swedish death with their own twist to it, they got their third album on the way and deffo are not just a plain retro but a true powerhouse of their own! The 2015 album Denouncing the Holy Throne by HEAVING EARTH was one of the best death metal records of the last year, especially if you are into blasphemous but yet thoughtful part of the DM spectre. Another great addition to the line-up are Prague’s own experimentators DEMIMONDE who are returing after a 15 year hiatus. The single “The Event Horizon” from their upcoming album was released earlier today and is heralding yet another piece of avantagarde metal science fiction. PERFECITIZEN will unleash a whirlwind of their unique death grind mix which they call blastcore. Three MetalGate records bands to finish this update, electronic metal crossover LIVEEVIL, technical death metal KEEP ON ROTTING and thrashing death ANTIGOD!

New BUDGIE book “Time To Remember”
A new book on influential Welsh rockers BUDGIE covers the period from 1980, when new guitarist John Thomas would prove to be just the tonic needed to launch the band into the ’80s.
Thomas, who passed away in March this year, recorded three albums with BUDGIE in the early 1980s – “Power Supply”, “Nightflight” and “Deliver Us From Evil”. The book, “Time To Remember: Budgie’s Heavy Revolution 1980–2010”, covers these three albums and three Reading Festival appearances, culminating in a headline show in ’82.
BUDGIE would also venture behind the Iron Curtain, visiting Poland in ’82 for a triumphant tour of sold-out stadiums, two years before IRON MAIDEN’s much-heralded visit. Forty of photographer Justin Thomas’s previously unseen photos of BUDGIE’s Polish tour are included in the book, which includes more than 750 images across 430 pages.
BUDGIE took a break in 1988, but returned in style to play before a huge San Antonio audience in 1995 – the music kept alive by Texas radio and METALLICA’s covers of “Breadfan” and “Crash Course In Brain Surgery”.
BUDGIE remained active during the 1990s and 2000s, touring in the UK, Europe, the States and Australia, and releasing another studio album. The band last played live in 2010, when bandleader Burke Shelley would undergo emergency surgery for an aortic aneurysm.
The book features contributions from band members, roadies, promoters and photographers, including extensive interviews with John Thomas in the months leading up to his untimely passing.
The new book, the third in a trilogy of books about BUDGIE, can be ordered online here:

Celebrating 35 years as a band, 2016 is proving to be a very good time for thrash/metal icons Anthrax, and the festivities are intensifying. First, today Anthrax is releasing the third lyric video from their new album For All Kings, this one for the track “Zero Tolerance.” The song closes the album and its message is very personal and particularly timely in today’s society, with the horrific rise in mass shootings and other forms of terrorism. In the words of Anthrax lyricist Scott Ian, “‘Zero Tolerance’ sums it all up. It’s about doing anything to protect your small circle of family and friends from the insanity of the world.” Check out the lyric video for “Zero Tolerance” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1_HKsoql1Y
The truth of humanity is far from insane
Clockwise from left: Scott Ian, Charlie Benante, Jon Donais, Frank Bello, Joey Belladonna
Anthrax’s 35th anniversary year will also see the band spending the bulk of June, July and August playing major music festivals throughout Europe. These will include France’s Hellfest and Download, SwedenRock, Graspop in Belgium, and the UK’s Bloodstock, as well as playing select dates with Slayer, Iron Maiden, and a handful of headline shows.
Then, the 35th anniversary will culminate beginning September 9 in Cleveland when Anthrax will join forces with Big Four comrades Slayer for a seven-week North American tour of major and secondary markets. This trek will also include appearances at several major North American music festivals including Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on September 25 in San Bernardino, CA.
“I find it hard to believe that all this time has gone by,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante. “I still feel like I did when we were first recording our Spreading the Disease album. For All Kings has been so well received, it really does make us want to take this to another level. I think it’s all so encouraging that, after all these years, here we are hanging out with out metal alumni Slayer. The two bands have never been better at what we do, that’s encouraging for the future of music.”
Added Scott Ian, “July 18, 1981 is the day I started playing rhythm guitar in Anthrax. Thirty-five years have passed since that day and my life has changed profoundly. I am a husband, I am a father. I am a long way from the 17-year-old soon to be college dropout that co-founded a heavy metal band. The only thing that hasn’t changed in 35 years, the one constant, I am still the rhythm guitar player in Anthrax. It’s what I GET to do. I GET to play in a band and I never take that for granted. It is a privilege. And the reason I GET to be in Anthrax is because for 35 years, people all over this planet have connected with what we do. There wouldn’t be an Anthrax if it wasn’t for the fans that heard something in our sound that made them want to bang their heads all those years ago. Together over these 35 years, we became part of something that changed the history of music and I am deeply proud of that. So to quote the Scottish poet Robbie Burns, “Here’s to us; who is as good as us? Damn few, and they’re all dead.” Thank you my friends…35 and counting.”
For the September/October dates with Slayer, Anthrax is making available a limited number of “VIP Kings Ensemble Packages.” In addition to the band’s new For All Kings CD, access to the band’s Meet’n’Greet, a personal photo with the band, early entry into the venue, and much more, these special packages will include the buyer’s choice of a Scott Ian Signature Guitar, Charlie Benante Signature Series Snare, or a Frank Bello Signature Series LTD Bass Guitar.

The long awaited ROCK AGAINST MS: PIZZA RECORDSINGS will be released Tuesday July 19th, 2016. This is a limited release of 1000 vinyl records with music written and recorded specifically for the Rock Against MS Foundation, 501c3 at the world renown 606 Studios – Home of the Foo Fighters.
PRE-ORDER YOUR VINYL HERE: https://goo.gl/7oAlvt
This album was the brain child of David “Veggie” Vieira when he held a battle of the bands at his restaurant, the World Famous Rock & Roll Redballs Pizza. The winners received recording time for 1 song that would be turned into a vinyl album. Finding that he recorded more than 1 vinyl could hold, he contacted his dear friend, publicist Nancy B. Sayle and said “Let’s do another album for your foundation and ask your friends to join in!”
Sayle had limited space on the album as to the number and length of songs that could be recorded. The music also had to be fresh, new and never recorded – So, she sent out a plea to her friends to donate a new song and record live for the foundation. Several artists stepped up for the challenge without hesitation. In two days they all came back with amazing new, never recorded music and got ready for the studio. They spent the day at the 606 Studios recording the old fashioned way – LIVE IN STUDIO! “Being a part of this album was an amazing experience and a no brainer – It is a charity near and dear to my heart,” explains Phil Buckman (bassist/FUEL). Plus we got to record the song on the legendary 606 Studio soundboard!”
This album is one of a kind and a limited edition. Get yours ordered now before they sell out and ROCK AGAINST MS!! For more information go to www.facebook.com/rockagainstMSfoundation

Viral Internet sensation STEVE’N’SEAGULLS are back. Their second album Brothers in Farms is due out September 9 via Spinefarm.
For the uninitiated, Finland’s S’N’S shot to fame thanks to their bluegrass covers of metal classics, which spread across the w-w-w and garnered fans all over the world and racked up millions of views.
September 21, 2015 was eventually christened STEVE’N’SEAGULLS Day in the entire state of Colorado, while the band also covered The Beastie Boys’ hit “Sabotage” for The AV Club, toured the U.S., bringing their folk metal madrigrals to the masses, and appeared at the annual SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, last Spring.
The first single for their hillbillified cover of Iron Maiden’s “Aces High” is slated for release on July 21, with the video following on August 3.
U.S. tour dates are below.

Dissonance Productions proudly announces the worldwide signing of Steve Grimmett’s GRIM REAPER. The recently launched rock/metal label will release the band’s new album, Walking In The Shadows, on September 23. It will be the band’s first new recording since 1987’s Rock You To Hell. Pre-order information for the album’s standard and limited edition digipak formats will be announced shortly.
The release of Walking In The Shadows has been an anticipated announcement by fans of the British metal band for more than two decades. Vocalist/band leader Steve Grimmett shared to fans via a Facebook posting in early January noting, “2016 has started and that means only 29 days until I start touring again. This year it’s Europe then North America, South America, plus a new album… bring it on!” He continued in discussing the new album saying, “I am tremendously proud of the album. It has taken a long time because it has been fraught with problems, but we have ended up with the best thing I have done in decades. We’re all looking forward to bring it to the fans and excited to be doing a world tour, starting straight after its release, and carrying on until 2017.”
Surrounding himself with an all new band, Grimmett recently completed a 22-date North American tour. The tour, including stops in New York, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Antonio, and Austin. Due to its success, the band recently announced a planned return in the autumn to support the new album after release.
GRIM REAPER’s story begins in 1979 after successfully fighting off hundreds of bands in a local Battle Of The Bands competition. This win, combined with an already sizeable following, aroused the interest of Ebony Records. Signing with the small UK label, GRIM REAPER released three albums in rapid succession to international acclaim. Due to legal turmoil with Ebony, GRIM REAPER would disband in 1988. Grimmett would go on to record with Onslaught, Lionsheart, and more recently The Sanity Days debut Evil Beyond Belief. His renowed vocal range remains one of metal’s most identifiable with loyal fans turning out in numbers to hear him perform.
Since reforming in 2006, Steve Grimmett’s GRIM REAPER has made several European festival appearances including Germany’s Keep It True, England’s British Steel, Belgium’s Heavy Sound, and Sweden’s Muskelrock. Steve Grimmett’s GRIM REAPER will perform next on June 18 at Rock The Ball in Hungerford, England. It is a charity event for Marie Curie . The band will also headline London Camden Underworld on the 23rd September, the show will be the European launch event for the new album.

They were the Kings of the Road. They lived on it. They loved it and the fans loved them!
Never was the spirit of Motörhead more alive than when they were on tour, shake, rattle and rolling audiences to within an inch of their lives thanks to that indomitable cocktail of power, purpose and head-crunching volume. In fact, after four decades of bone-pulverizing duty, Motörhead were still enjoying sold-out gigs worldwide.
On November 20th and 21st 2015, at the Zenith in Munich, Germany, UDR Records made the decision to record – what happened to be the very last live shows ever recorded – and Motörhead proceeded to deliver two storming sold out shows. Where there had once been almost too-fast breakneck pace, there was measured yet still thunderous rock’n’roll served up only as they could, Phil Campbell playing better and better, and Mikkey Dee elevating the art of drumming to the superlative heights which made him one of metal’s most coveted skinsmen.
Those first strains of the mighty “Bomber” are like a salve to all heavy metal souls, the reverberant classic forcing you to turn it up, Lemmy snarling and roaring. “Metropolis” grooving like the day it was written, and “Overkill” as mighty as ever…. And here is the unavoidable truth. There will be no more Motörhead tours because Lemmy is no longer here, and many, many people did not get a chance to hear them one more time on what proved to be their last-ever piece of road work.
Clean Your Clock is the natural sound of one of rock’n’roll’s mightiest, rarest and most astoundingly excellent beasts – Motörhead. There isn’t a plaudit they haven’t received and there isn’t a plaudit they don’t deserve. And if there had to be a ‘final’ Motörhead album, perhaps it is fitting that Clean Your Clock, a superb live encapsulation of the band at home, is the one.
So TURN-THIS-UP because as Lemmy himself said, the only way to feel the noise is when it’s good and loud… and remember Lemmy and Motörhead in the best possible way !!!

Primal Fear and Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody
Monday May 30 @ Club Soda, Montreal
Czechs of Inferno was pretty good in the Helsinki’s Black Flames of Blasphemy couple years ago and they were pretty good now. They matured their sound from basic black metal of earlier records to something flirting with current religious current and the end product is surprisingly viable. Usually I don’t dig when bands jump to the hype wagon but cheering to Inferno felt a bit special underground treat as there were so few people attending. They played early, they aren’t well-known nor they are outright nazis so no love from the audience this time, sadly. The “mystic and occult” antics of the singer are totally clichéd by the way, but I let it slip this time as show was otherwise satisfactory..
Demonical feat. ex or current members of Centinex gave the more death metal oriented gig. The band relied on the old school approach and delivered pretty basic death metal outburst.
Goatmoon is known for toying with the extreme right wing idealogy. The band didn’t hide that aspect at all, just instead let it speak for themselves. Basically it was interesting to witness how the crowd might be into Goatmoon and the ideology presented by them. Indeed the band pulled a nice huge crowd to salute with the raising hands. Besides the extreme black metal assault, having more folk oriented approach with the pipe and third guitarist came a bit of out of blue for sure for most of people.
Blasphemy have gigged in Finland quite a lot during the past few years. Therefore seeing them once again wasn’t that dramatic feeling and experience as they made the debut visit at Finland several years ago. However the bassist giant V Kusabs was absent for a reason or another, however the Canadian black metal skinheads relied on the force of the one guitar and the basswork by Deathlord. Blasphemy is definitely brutal and barbaric as far as the musical approach is concerned. Black Winds is definitely an eerie looking frontman with the brutal voice and raw outlook.
Local Lathspell has been around for a while and churning out record after record but I must admit that this it the first time I really invested time to see and hear these guys. And I was pretty pleased actually. They are most definitely elite among the Hyvinkää scene. Their black metal is focusing to just the right things and not gimmick and bullshit. Songs are mainly long but still they have good riffs and they don’t end up being totally repetitious. And what I liked also was that they actually invested something to look even remotely cool on stage with their chainmail shirts. Lathspell was the most pleasing surprise so far in the festival and I’ll try to give a go to their albums some day.
When Ukraine’s Kroda played in Finland first time with Temnozor ages ago I remember that while I liked their show hen, they were trumped by the sheer excellence of the headliner. Now they didn’t have Temnozor as their nemesis and boy they were good and convincing. They have just the right amount of folky touches but they are still raw enough to be considered real black metal and not some shitty world music. They sound razor-sharp and they look good, what’s not to love? Their gid was clearly one of the highlights of the weekend and reignited my lost interest towards this band.
Oh my, Sadistic Intent blew me away, again. I’ve seen these guys too many times and still they come up big, nasty and superior in every way imaginable. And yes, they also play these same (excellent) songs in every gig and still be able to slay. They have just this charisma of monolithic, larger than life, death metal legend. What they really are not, frankly, without even one real full-length album in their resume. Fellas, you have to release it already and join the caste of real legends. But I guess when you are throwing gigs in other continents with just some EPs under your belt you’ve been doing something right down of the road.
1349 has gained the monumental status as another brutal more straight forward played black metal from Norway. The primitive black metal approach is accomplished by the Satyricon batteryman Frost beating the drum with the skilled timing style. His playing was definitely spellbounding and tight as following his playing was definitely obvious. The brutal approach by 1349 started sounding a bit dull in the long run, however the whole set wasn’t the blasting black metal metal though. The band has unleashed the fiery brutality on newer outputs as well, sounding infernal nihilistic as well. 1349 being the last band of the day was a great way to conclude the first day.
SATURDAY – DAY 2nd
The first real band of Saturday, Malicious, is a local band that released their debut MLP while ago but unfortunately audience didn’t either know these guys nor cared. Whatever the reason was, they still tried to bring their A game to those literally few people front of the stage. I have to say that I like these young blokes. They are like a bit less affected version of Upsala scene bands, as Finns from Hyvinkää just can’t be as self-aware. They also have their kin in Åland’s Vorum. And that means that their brand of death metal is aggressive and full of vigor of youth, just the way it should be.
Sarkom is another less-known band Steelfest brings from the B league of Norway’s Black Metal scene. This time I was splendidly surprised by the quality of their stuff. I’ve been spinning some records in the past but they left no memory marks. Now they showed that their material is working fine in the live setting. They surely have just basic stuff and nothing really shiny moments, but still pressing the right buttons with some tasty riffs. I have to say that I watched this way more willingly than 1349’s fast but numbing attack night before even band are playing in totally different leagues.
Mörbid Vomit’s debut album titled Doctrine Of Violence saw the light of day a year and was praised as one hell of a debut album. The album presents the technical and brutal death metal in a way as it is supposed to. The four piece delivers the tight and skilled death metal playing ever live at the stage. The band truly did a brutal slap of the straight forward, yet technical death metal by hammering the songs off from the debut album down to the audience. The outfit doesn’t joke or fool, just being loyal to the real death metal roots.
Skyforger from Latvia is familiar band from the past Finnish tours and festivals so I wasn’t totally excited to see them beforehand. Given that fact, the gig was yet again a testimony that these guys are good what they are doing. I like the old stuff (first 2 albums or so) and they went maybe a bit too folky after that for my taste buds, but still quite good stuff in general. And of course old gems were cherries on the top the cake. ‘Kiitos’ they said in Finnish with surprisingly good pronunciation.
Sawhill Sacrifice being the local black metal squad unleashed . The band has been gigging for example in China. However it was rumoured there will be some eye capturing performance. The local black metal squad delivered the brutal and barbaric set of the grim sounding black metal for sure. As for the eye capturing performance a couple of ladies entirely covered in blood hit the stage.
Diabolical was ….how to say nicely…. kind of sounded of out of tune and to be honest thruout the whole set. Sorry guys, the sounds were messy and the band sounded pretty boring in the long run.
Necromancer played at Steelfest a couple of years by doing the blast from the past old school set of their 80’s speed metal stuff. The band played indoor stage creating the more suitable place whereas as for their gig at the outdoor stage. Well if this was their farewell gig, it could have been much tighter and even extreme aggressive. Playing under the burning and bright sun wasn’t speedy. All in all there was a bit too much hassling in the performance as the band should have banged the stuff with the ultimate rage.
Impaled Nazarene has always managed to create the controversy and war of words all over these years. This gig wasn’t any exception what comes to the singer’s vocabulary assault toward the former Thy Serpent member and the current owner of the KVLT record shop. Obviously there has been some verbal fighting and it was let it go now. However Impaled Nazarene has always been savage and merciless on the stage giving no mercy. The set was based on covering the wide career even from the ep up to the latest effort. Of course Impaled Nazarene dedicated MotorPenis for Lemmy. Impaled Nazarene turned to be extreme sadistic merciless live act indeed. The frontman’s character and voice are those aspects truly dominating the audience to worship the band. The music is yet brutal and uncompromising perversity.
Denial Of God is the long time black metal veteran, already formed back 1991. Despite the longevity, the Danish black metallers haven’t been productive. Anyway the cult group hit the stage at Steelfest to spread the Danish black metal approach. It was more apparent the crowd worshipped Denial Of God’s black mass ritualistic show. Denial Of God sounded evil and presents the basic the black metal elements.
Ragnarok from Norway… As a matter of fact five Norwegian blacked metal bands had been booked to share the stage with other bands, but the Norwegian black metallers definitely pull a lot of crowd as well as they are still able to unleash the infernal black metal blitzkrieg. As for Ragnarok, after having gone thru line-up changes Ragnarok still sounds evil and grim. The set was kicked with the kind of Motorheadish slogan “We are Ragnarok, we are here to play the Norwegian black metal”. They did indeed and conquered the audience.
Batushka is the name of new hype from Poland and while I was eager to see them live, in the end I deemed them somewhat pretentious, calculated affair. They have it all, mysterious murmuring, ritualistic chants, occult hand gestures and what’s the most important nowadays, really cool robes with some orthodox imaginary. I appreciate the effort, I really do. But what about the music then? Nice, but not that nice. They have some good parts in their super-mystical esoteric stuff and they have good flow but mostly I ended up thinking that is this really so superior to merit all the hype? Probably not but this was something that has to be seen in 2016 and now I did, so todo list has one less item.
While Rob Darken of Graveland did some recent press angering his core fans saying that Graveland is not racial nor political anymore and he actually wants that everybody can enjoy Graveland’s music, this band is still something to behold in the “normal” festival settings. The reputation is still damn big, and it’s not a good reputation. But while some hate Graveland, I argue that their early material is really magnificent piece of Black Metal history. And gladly they still played choice cuts from the In the glare of Burning Churches era of raw black metal in their third gig. Then there were epics like Thousand Swords. Such a good stuff that gave me chills. Rob’s live lineup is bunch of hired guns but it was nice to hear this competent drummer to play homages to infamous Capricornus. And Darken himself is probably generating some controversy with his hippie style dance moves on stage, or let’s say they are just paganic. Nevertheless Darken did make a right choice to bring Graveland to stages. I just hope that he won’t overstay his welcomes and keeps this in right, underground, context.
Gorgoroth with Hoest from Taake once again on the mic hit stage right after the midnight. As a matter of fact Gorgoroth is supposed to have another singer, but apparently Hoest handles the live performance. Besides Gorgoroth went thru the mandatory line-up changes when Frank Watkins passed away some time ago and had to recruit a new guy. As for the performance Infernus’ Gorgoroth sounded brutal as well as chaotic barbaric. Hoest’ s commander role on the stage turned out to be such dominating and in a way uncontrolled behaving. The band raged with the brutal and barbaric passion thru the whole show. Gorgoroth is mean and truly presenting all evilness.
Steelfest was nothing but a tremendous blast from the beginning to the end. The line-up was once again extremely amazing even though the organization of the Steelfest were struggling a few unexpected cancellations and had to pull through by booking replacements. However these replacements were highly appreciate among the crowd. As for the continuation of Steelfest, well to be honest it remains to be seen. All kinds of expectations and speculations have been thrown into the air. It would be truly awesome to see Steelfest return with extreme strong line-up.
