Evil Masquerade Welcomes New Vocalist Tobias Jansson

October 12th, 2013
by EvilG

Most of you are aware of that Apollo hasn’t been seen much with the band this year. He feels that he needs to slow down and take a time-out from his musical career for a while and focus more on his private life that has suffered from busy schedules. The band fully understands and respects this.

This is nothing new and everyone saw this coming. Therefore, as you have already seen, Evil Masquerade decided to move on several months ago.
Now approaching a new album it’s time to officially introduce the new singer.

It hardly comes as a surprise for people attending Evil Masquerade’s shows this year, that the microphone has been handed over to Swedish powerhouse singer Tobias Jansson. In very short time he has grown close to the whole Evil Masquerade family and the band already sounds like a well-oiled machine live.

You can look forward to hear him on the upcoming album The Digital Crucifix.
Welcome to Evil Masquerade Tobias!

Vixen founder and lead guitarist, Jan Kuehnemund, Dead at 51

Jan Kuehnemund, Vixen

Jan Kuehnemund, Vixen

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Vixen founder and lead guitarist, Jan Kuehnemund, who lost a fierce battle with cancer on Thursday, October 10, 2013. Though most well known for her gifted guitar playing and other musical talents, Jan was a rare friend and beautiful in every sense of the word. Humble, thoughtful, loyal and kind, she was the most gracious of women, possessing the quiet strength of a true warrior. She genuinely loved and appreciated her friends and fans more than most could ever know. Those who were most fortunate to have known her and loved her are heartbroken at the loss of Jan, whose spirit will shine through her music eternally.

Jan was very courageous. Never complained. Never gave up. The cancer beat her body but it NEVER broke her spirit at any point.

Up until the actual moment that she died, she really believed she was going back home.

Jan… you will be missed.. but never forgotten.

Guitarist Will Wallner

Guitarist Will Wallner has released the following statement:

I am sad to announce I am no longer a member of White Wizzard. I will not get into the petty argument between Jon Leon and Joseph Micheal, I will only comment on what matters; the music. I am proud of the album Joseph Micheal, Will Wallner, Jake Dreyer, Jon Leon and Giovanni Durst created this year. We all brought our own influences and individual styles to make a great metal album. That is what I want to remember from my time in White Wizzard. We had a great live chemistry and for a brief moment I believed the band could have done something.

Lost Society – Sammy Elbanna

October 10th, 2013
by Arto Lehtinen

IMG_8748

Thrash metal lives and well in Finland when a number of young thrash bands have emerged out of cellars to conquer the scene with the intensive grip and attitude. Lost Society definitely belongs to the elite list of the Finnish speed/thrash metal genre. The band’s debut album FAST LOUD DEATH presents the ultra speed ear piercing hymns making each one’s head band brutality. It ain’t any surprise chaotic and maelstorm pits are raging when Lost Society hit the stage. Therefore it was reasonable to set the band’s frontman Sammy Elbanna to the rack of Metal-Rules.Com to find out a bit more.

October 9th, 2013
by Arto Lehtinen

From Nightwish:

Nightwish - Showtime, Storytime

Nightwish – Showtime, Storytime

Ms. Floor Jansen is a keeper.

Also, we will be a six-piece band from now on, as Mr. Troy Donockley (uilleann pipes, low whistles, vocals) will become a full-time member of NIGHTWISH.

Originally we were going to wait until 2014 to make a decision about the future line-up of the band, but the past year has clearly shown us that Floor and Troy are perfect matching pieces to our puzzle, and we are really grateful of the bond that has grown between all of us. We love you guys.

Tuomas
Marco
Jukka
Emppu

Commented vocalist Floor Jansen: “Words cannot describe what I feel! This union is beyond everything and I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to continue this amazing journey with my new brothers! Once I had a dream…and this is it!!!”

Piper/whistleman, added vocalist Troy Donockley: “`Imaginaerum World Tour´was a revelation to me and in that time, I became aware of a growing unity and then, finally, a transcendence of all the usual nonsense that affects bands. A beautiful process. And since the idea, the musical dream that is NIGHTWISH has been a part of me since before I was born, I am delighted to officially sail into uncharted waters with my brothers and sister. Wondrous scenes Ahoy! ”

The new line-up can be seen on the live / tour documentary DVD »Showtime, Storytime«, released on November 29th. Watch a brand new trailer, directed by Ville Lipiäinen here:
