Hypocrisy

Hypocrisy

I’m excited tonight, as this is my first time seeing Hypocrisy, and as a bonus, they are being supported by two of the UK’s finest up-and-coming death metal acts; Bloodshot Dawn and Ancient Ascendant.

Even on the way into the capital I spot eager looking, band t-shirt clad gig-goers who are obviously headed in the same direction as me, and you get the feeling that tonight cannot fail to entertain!

I arrive 30 minutes before doors and step out onto a breezy and (as usual,) busy Camden high street, and across the road the snake of black-shirted metallers is already coiled around The World’s End pub, awaiting admittance to The Underworld.

Gojira are known internationally as a band with a back catalogue of songs laced with shots of adrenaline in each colossal chord, with stunning live performances to match.

The four piece from Bayonne, Southwest France, who’s musical themes direct from their native surroundings of wildness, the band, with newest album L’ Enfant Savage (The wild child), have gone back to the core of influence and re-discovered the rawness energy of inspiration and created a smasher.

SATAN’S HOST @ La Respuesta, San Juan, Puerto Rico

Satan’s Host

@ La Respuesta, San Juan, Puerto Rico

March 16th 2013

Produced by K&K Entertainment

Review by Titus Isaac
Videography by Dennis Rivera
Photography by Fran Jaume

Satan's Host

Satan’s Host

The anticipation for this particular show was built not only because of the production team’s promotional efforts, but also because a particular group of religious fanatics who decided to start some silly campaign to boycott the show.

Apparently, these people felt that it was just “too much” to allow a band with a name like Satan’s Host to play on the island, even though bands like Marduk and 1349 had already visited Puerto Rico.

I guess we should thank these people for promoting the show through means such as the local news programs and newspaper articles. Although not one of these people showed up the day of the show, they definitely helped in getting the attention of Metal fans that were otherwise unaware of Satan’s Host music or the fact that they would play here in Puerto Rico.

HYPOCRISY Sits Out North American Tour Due to ongoing American Bureaucracy

HYPOCRISY - End Of Disclosure

HYPOCRISY – End Of Disclosure

Swedish death metal legends HYPOCRISY, have been forced to sit out their upcoming North American tour this May due to reasons beyond their control. The band members had received their visa approvals and everything was going as scheduled, until the embassy let them know that the earliest they could pick up their visas, get them stamped and so on, wasn’t until late June at the earliest. A regular procedure that would normally take just a few days to sort, takes much longer at the moment due to that current workload Homeland Security is experiencing.

“As we were getting ready to go get our visas stamped and ready for the tour we were informed that the earliest we could go initially was sometime in July,” explains guitarist/vocalist Peter Tägtgren. “We then immediately continued to call them, got the label to help with some letters, and put our lawyer to work etc. The best that got us was an appointment in late June. This is a HUGE blow to us, to our fans and everyone who has supported HYPOCRISY in North America. Sometimes there are battles you can’t win, and this is one of them. We will be back, I can promise that!”

The trek was also initially set to feature Brazilian brothers in death KRISIUN, Belgian gore-grinders ABORTED, and technical-melodic-death-masters ARSIS, as well as AUTUMN’S END and STARKILL on select shows. The tour will continue as previously scheduled at this time minus HYPOCRISY and ABORTED.

Crashdïet – Interview, St. Petersburg, FL, April 19, 2013

Interview With Simon Cruz and Eric Young of Crashdiet

Conducted by Erich Heintzelman

Photos Courtesy of Erich Heintzelman and Dustin Hardman

Crashdiet played the final two dates of their North American tour in Florida, both being added with only two weeks notice.  When I got the notice from AFM promoter Dustin Hardman that the band would be coming to St. Petersburg for a show, I jumped at a chance to interview the band and find out how their first nation-wide tour of the United States had gone.  Joining the band on these dates was the all-female Swedish band Crucified Barbara, and Montreal, Canada’s Snaskeskyn Whiskey.  Against my better judgement, I dragged my wife along as well, knowing that she likes limited quantities of metal, but I was sure she would appreciate the vocal harmonies and general upbeat sound of Crashdiet.  I got to the venue, Jannus Live, early.  If you have never been to Jannus, I heartily endorse it.  They truly have an awesome setup which I will describe more in my review of the actual concert.  I chatted for awhile with a Crashdiet uber fan from Minneapolis, who in his dedication had managed to track down Simon Cruz’s demo from his time in the band Jailbait.  An hour before Crashdiet were scheduled to go on stage, the band invited me up to their rehearsal area for the interview and my wife tagged along.

Right off the bat I met all of the guys in the band and I have to say they were extremely friendly, down to earth and acted like your everyday average guys.  We exchanged pleasantries, imbibed a few beverages and then got down to the business of the interview.  A few of the guys from Snakeskyn Whiskey came in after finishing their set, and they were good guys too as well as a talented band, as I managed to catch most of their set before the interview.
