by EvilG

Brazilian metallers Almah keep working at their fourth studio album, as yet untitled. At the moment, the musicians are finishing pre-production of new songs in a home studio of the frontman/founder of the band Edu Falaschi (ex-Angra). Falaschi tells: “the new album will be more positive. While Motion (2011) is a fucking heavy, tense and dark album, the new one will be hopeful with fast songs”.

To keep the fans updated about how the work is going on, Almah has recently started to reveal the series of “making-of new album videos” via its official Youtube channel. The video below presents a part of a new sond. Edu Falaschi comments: “Hello guys, the new album is almost ready, we are finishing the last songs now!

Atomic Blast – Interview

by Metal-Rules.com UK Team

Atomic Blast interview

Interviewed by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Atomic-Blast/167835336650969

Atomic Blast 1 final

Their name may make them sound like a flash-in-the-pan but talking with Atomic Blast conjures up a very different image. They may be a young band, but their debut EP Noise Of Revolution is kicking up a din of its own with its groove and thrash influences. Charmingly depreciating in comments like ‘everyone could write songs like ours’, the truth is not every one brings this much heart with them. Sounding like they’re having as much of a blast as the bombs they’re named after, we talk to Atomic Blast about life before Noise Of Revolution, and their next big bang…

Skid Row

Skid Row

If you consider yourself a fan of 80’s rock’n’roll, then nothing can possibly seem better than a chance to see Skid Row play a sold-out show at the London’s O2 Academy Islington. Yes, the same Skid Row that many years ago toured the world with Guns N’Roses and released songs like “Youth Gone Wild” and “18 and Life” that once were soundtracks for a whole different generation.

What makes things even better is that tonight is a Saturday night, everyone seems to be up for a party and Skid Row have rolled into town bringing two great opening acts with them.
