The sun setting over London is always a pretty sight to behold as the salmon pink sky glistens the Scala on this spring day, it is a stark contrast to the hubbub and pure excitement that will be contained in its walls tonight.

RATT Singer STEPHEN PEARCY – “It’s Time That I Personally Part Ways With The Band”

April 25th, 2014
by EvilG

2013-05-09-SexDrugsRattRollCoverimageRATT singer Stephen Pearcy has issued the following statement:
“After 30 years creating the band Ratt and losing a real brother, (late guitarist) Robbin (Crosby), it’s time that I personally part ways with the band.

I am officially done with having anything to do with them due to the constant turmoil, unresolved business, personal attacks/threats in the public forum,
and most of all, the disrespect to the fans.

I’m very content and proud of the legacy and the music I’ve created. This music will live well beyond any of our lifetimes. I owe no one anything but a huge heartfelt thank you for coming to the party for the last 30 years.

With much respect, life goes on and the music I created will continue to be heard for years to come despite the dark clouds that have lingered for far too long. I will personally continue to make music and perform live shows.

See you out there!” Read the rest of this entry »

Delain – Interview with Charlotte Wessels

Delain Interview

with Charlotte Wessels

at Wembley Arena, London, UK

12th April 2014

Interview by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs

Photos by Inty Malcolm

Hailing not from a realm of Stephen King’s conjuring, but from the Netherlands, Delain have gone from a project built of guest musicians, to an enduring cornerstone of female-fronted symphonic metal, and well known for their live chops. In the nervous hours leading up to their Wembley Arena slot supporting the mighty Within Temptation we grab some time with frontwoman Charlotte Wessels to talk about new album THE HUMAN CONTRADICTION (It might have something to do with the fact that we really took matters into our own hands again…), industry hype ( And I really do feel that nothing is really over if there are still bands who are enjoying what they’re doing…), and the age old ‘women in metal’ subject (I think the most important thing is that actually it is not that special…)….

WITCHES MARK – Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse post-festival wrap up

April 24th, 2014
by EvilG
WITCHES MARK

WITCHES MARK

WITCHES MARK performed as a main-stage act at this year’s Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday April, 5th. We took a train from the airport into the city and then caught a bus to get to our hotel. We caught up with metal legends RIOT V in the hotel lobby before heading to the venue. They were the festival’s headliner Friday night. They sounded incredible live with their new vocalist Todd Michael Hall (Jack Starr’s Burning Starr).

Saturday we took a forty minute drive to Homewood, Illinois for a quick rehearsal at an old friend’s studio before our performance at Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse later that evening. We arrived back at the venue with enough time to woof down some tacos and a Pabst Blue Ribbon or two before show time.
