Huhtiniemen Pallokentä, Lappeenranta, Finland
August 1 – 2, 2014
Review by Petri da Costa

Although Finland is mainly known outside for its heavy metal bands and for the heavy and rock summer festivals, there’s a great hardcore scene with many bands and gigs around the year. This year it was the sixth time the LPRHC Fest was organized, a fest which started back in 2006 very small and grew over the years. This time around there was a new location for the festival, more bands than the previous edition, a lot of expectations and some bumps along the weekend.
The first day of the fest started sort of early, around 16.30, and since I was only able to leave to festival in the afternoon, from Helsinki, I wasn’t able to catch the first acts of the day, which included a good combination of hardcore and punk bands like Become a Threat, Ydinperhe, No Shame, Kaupungin Valot, One Hidden Frame, Foreseen and Kivesveto Go-Go
Once inside the festival area the mood was great and although it seemed far from being full, there was a good number of fans and I was able to watch the end of Räjäyttäjät, a punk band in the second stage. Next up was supposed to be Misery Index’s turn (which substituted Ringworm after they canceled their gig in the fest), but the organizers changed the schedule and left Notkea Rotta Allstars to take on the main stage. During their near 60min. set they certainly pleased the crowd and kept the good vibe of the festival going.
The last band of the second stage was Laineen Kasperi ja Palava Kaupunki, the second hip hop act of the day, which continued the good “party” vibe from Notkea Rotta Allstars. At the same time, in the bar area, singer Joey Luumäki was doing a short “acoustic” set, but it didn’t seem to get that much attention. It seemed a bit odd to have at the same time two different performances, and not so far away from each other, so the sound wasn’t that great throughout both perfomances, this was a problem that was even more noticable on the next day.
So it was finally Misery Index’s turn to close the first day of the festival. Promoting their lastest release, The Killing Gods, the band was as usual on top form with songs like “Conjuring the Cull”, “Manufacturing Greed” and “Traitors”, which closed their set, displaying their powerful death and grindcore sound. It was however a bit strange to notice that towards the mid of their set some people leaving the festival area. Well, those who witnessed them during the entire 60min. set left extremely satisfied and wanting for more.
The second day of the festival seemed promising, after all H2O was finally going to play for the first time in Finland and many people were coming to the festival just to see them. Unfortunately around 14o’clock word came out that the band had missed their flight to Finland and wouldn’t be able to come to the festival. This sent a shockwave of disappointment and frustration for most, especially those who were coming from far just to seem them. The organizers then had to come with a substitute for them, which would be Pää Kii, a “new” punk band who has been getting a lot of fans over the last two years. There was nothing else to do but try to enjoy the festival, even though during the whole day there was still a certain bitterness over the very late cancellation of H2O.
On the previous day there was a good combination of hardcore and punk bands, plus the hip hop bands, but Saturday seemed like it was the “punk day”. From Relentless to Rejected to The Heartburns to Anal Thunder to Terveet Kädet and many more, the punk overtook the festival and many were wondering why there weren’t more hardcore bands on the schedule.
Regardeless of that, the music was good and the fans were enjoying the last day of the festival. It was noticeable to see that there were less people than Friday, but the bands gave their best and kept the crowd entertained and if there’s one band that fits that description well is Ratface. Their hardcore/thrash/punk short set on the main stage got everybody moving in the circle pit and moshing. One problem that occurred was that when they were still playing, the band who would follow them on the second stage, Bloodlands, started to do a bit of sound check and since both stages were very near, you’d hear a sound mixture from both stages.
Bloodlands took on the second stage a bit after Ratface and kept the intensity of the previous circle pit with their hardcore and death metal approach. It has to be said that their drummer was the “MVP” of the day having played earlier drums for Rejected and then in Ratface and right after in Bloodlands, not many could have pulled that off! During Bloodlands, Joey Luumäki was again on vocals/guitar in the smaller stage of the beer area and the sound was too loud, once again causing sound problems for those who were in the second stage watching Bloodlands.
One of the most famous punk bands from Finland, Terveet Kädet, showed that they still got a lot of energy unlenshing their old school punk and the fans kept that pit moving. Right after came Hammertime and was also one of the bands that had more fans in the pit. From beginning to end they showed that the Finnish hardcore is strong and alive. The day was coming to an end and Anal Thunder was the one which closed LPRHC Fest 2014 in a very humorous way pleasing the fans.
It wasn’t a perfect weekend, as mentioned there were some problems regarding the location and sound of the three different stages in the festival area. It’d have been also better to have more hardcore bands since after all the festival is called Lappeenranta Hardcore Fest, but I’m sure in the forthcoming editions of the festival these little bumps will be solved and the fans will come in greater numbers.

Legendary architects of thrash metal EXODUS have revealed the track listing for their upcoming tenth studio album, Blood In Blood Out, due out in North America on October 14th.
“When I was working on the record, I was sitting around watching TV series like ‘Gangland’ and all these locked-up prison reality shows,” shares guitarist & songwriter Gary Holt. “And I thought, ‘Yeah, that’s like EXODUS.’ It’s a brotherhood. You bleed to get in, you bleed to get out. I’ve been doing this kind of music since I was a teenager and I’ll be doing it ‘til I can’t physically do it anymore.”
The early ’80s metal scene in Los Angeles has become legendary, as it spawned such worldwide headliners as Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Dokken, W.A.S.P., and originally, Metallica (before the latter relocated to San Francisco). And the new documentary, ‘Inside Metal: Pioneers of L.A. Hard Rock & Metal,’ chronicles the entire scene.
Directed by Bob Nalbandian and produced by Metalrock Films, ‘Inside Metal’ features all-new interviews with countless bands and artists that thrived on the scene, and tell its story, first hand. To ensure that this killer documentary receives the attention it deserves, a fundraising campaign has been set up at WWW.METALROCKFILMS.COM – which will help strengthen the film’s distribution, marketing and promotion.
This groundbreaking movie features exclusive and candid interviews with members of Metallica (Lars Ulrich), Ratt (Stephen Pearcy), Dokken (Don Dokken), Quiet Riot (Carlos Cavazo), W.A.S.P. (Chris Holmes), Megadeth (David Ellefson), Great White, (Jack Russel), Y&T, (Dave Meniketti), Stryper (Michael Sweet) and Armored Saint (Joey Vera).
‘Inside Metal’ is about giving fans the real inside story from the behind the scenes world of metal and hard rock with in-depth interviews, ultra-rare concert footage and photographs, and an original music score from that era; in this no-holds-barred, never before seen, recollection of untold stories.
To check out some sneak previews, visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlzWl795u0E
Early feedback has been exceptional, including renowned video director Jonas Åkerlund (who has worked with the likes of Metallica and Ozzy) raving, “This film captures an era that catapulted metal into the spotlight and takes the audience on a wild ride down memory lane. After watching it I wanted to get in my time machine and experience those days for the first time. You’re hit with a potent nostalgia, a time I thought we couldn’t get back, not until I saw this film. I can’t get enough of this shit, what an amazing film to watch over and over again, well done!”
Metalrock Films ask – and want – real and serious metal fans to be a part of this historic documentary and spread the word that this was the scene where it all began, ground zero.
“Our Fanbacked campaign will raise the direly needed financial support to bring this film to one and all in the US and Internationally in order to pay for the marketing and promotion to get it noticed by the general public.

SAXON’s Biff Byford Fronts Film Concept Group, THE SCINTILLA PROJECT – New Album ‘The Hybrid’ Coming Next Week!
“Scintilla”, a science fiction thriller, is set deep underground in the wilds of a former Soviet state where strange genetic experiments are taking place. A war weary mercenary is hired to lead a company scientist to the secret underground laboratory and with his team of mercenaries to steal the research in the laboratory. Along the way the good people face dangerous militia involved in a bloodthirsty civil war, strange monsters lurking in the abandoned tunnels of the old Soviet bunker and finally they meet the scientist running the genetic experiments and her terrifying secret.
The film has inspired a newly formed super-group THE SCINTILLA PROJECT, fronted by SAXON’s own BIFF BYFORD, who will be releasing their album The Hybrid in the U.S., featuring songs inspired by the film, on September 2, 2014 via UDR Music. Select tracks on the record are co-produced by world-famous heavy metal producer Andy Sneap, who also plays guitar on these tracks.
Biff Byford states, “I was introduced to Lionel Hicks by Toby Jepson while recording ‘Call To Arms’. This was leading SAXON to write a song for the Lionel Hicks produced film ‘Scintilla’. As the film developed through production, our minds began working – maybe we could put together a concept album based on and inspired by the film. While I was having a break from writing with SAXON, Lionel Hicks, Anthony Ritchie (both ‘Balance Of Power’), and I decided that I would produce and also sing on the album. I brought in Andy Sneap to co-produce and play guitar on some tracks.”

Interview With Helmuth
By Peter Atkinson
Photos from https://www.facebook.com/belphegor
It takes a tough hombre to survive for more than two decades in the extreme metal underground. And Helmuth Lehner – or just Helmuth, if you please – is a tough hombre to be sure. As frontman, guitarist and driving force behind Austria’s self-described “diabolical death musick” deviants Belphegor, he’s kept the band going through myriad lineup changes, injuries that prompted the departures of bassist Barth in 2006 and co-founding guitarist Sigurd in 2007, and his own brush with death in 2011 after contracting typhoid fever during a South American tour in support of the Blood Magick Necromance album.
After a year-long struggle to get himself back in fighting shape, Helmuth and Belphegor were back at it – albeit it a bit less rigorously. In late 2012, the band slowly began working on what became their 10th album Conjuring The Dead with Hate Eternal mainman Erik Rutan at his Mana Recording Studios in Florida. The album, which finds Belphegor not losing one iota of their brutality or depravity, was issued in early August.
A few weeks prior to Conjuring’s release, in responses to e-mailed questions, Helmuth offered the following about Belphegor’s endurance, his own return from death’s door and the new album’s celebration of “Diabolical Death Metal.” The ALL CAPS and creative spellings are his own.
“Angel Of The World” is the 3rd video from ColdSpell’s latest album Frozen Paradise. The video was filmed and produced by Michael Lekrans.
“Frozen Paradise” album that was released in September 2013 on Escape-music UK.
Here is the song “Ageless Stranger” by Viathyn. It is the first single from their new album Cynsoure (Release Date: October 7, 2014).
“We chose Ageless Stranger to be the opening track on our new album Cynosure because it is high energy and hard hitting. With a big chorus, relentless rhythms, and some fun shredding, we feel it is the appropriate introduction to the remaining hour of diverse musical moments you will hear on Cynosure. The lyrics are inspired by the malevolent Stephen King character Randall Flagg, who has appeared in multiple works by King such as The Stand, The Eyes of the Dragon, and The Dark Tower” comments Viathyn guitarist Jacob Wright.

“…Viathyn have delivered a really solid, classy and mature metal album, that is as good as anything coming out of Europe these days” – JP – Metal Rules
After reuniting four years ago with more than 15 years in hibernation, legendary German heavy metallers ACCEPT have added yet another chapter in the story of one of the most triumphant career comebacks in the history of heavy music, this time with the band’s latest studio release Blind Rage.
For the third time since 2010, ACCEPT’s latest album has cracked the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart – this time at#35. Blind Rage also holds the #4 position on the Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart. In Canada, Blind Rage has debuted at #114 on the Top 200 & at #21 on the Hard Rock charts. Presciently, Blind Rage debuted at #1 on the German Media Control chart – the best possible chart entry in the career of any German music artist.
“Four years ago, we decided to start ACCEPT anew,” states the band. “Of course, we hoped to reach the fans of heavy metal and leave a few more marks in its history. None of us would have thought that it would come to this. We’d like to thank all who gave us enormous strength and the will to continue on order to make this happen.”
Formed over a decade ago in Seattle, Washington, “Soulbender” is comprised of Queensryche guitarist Michael Wilton, vocalist Nick Pollock (My Sister’s Machine), guitarist Dave Groves (ex-Tin Pan/Fallen Angel) and drummer Wes Hallam (ex-Assault/Fallen Angel). SOULBENDER II contains four all new songs (Turn Anger up, Shoal, Slave To Reality, Seraphim) as well as the ten original tracks (remastered) from the first album (Fix Me, Clockwork and Compass, Rabbit Hole, The American Dream, Samsara, Prime Time, Shoot Poem, This Ocean, Hunger, Three Towers). Michael Wilton describes Soulbender as “a very progressive, hard rock band with very intense musicians and a couple of the members are prodigies”. Official release date for Soulbender is September 30, 2014.

“Honky Tonk Metal” Road Warriors SCATTERED HAMLET Release Fan-Picked Video “Shelter” + Announce October 2014 Tour Dates
If Stone Cold Steve Austin teamed up with Bo and Luke Duke and got into a heavy duty parking lot brawl on a Saturday night, you would have yourself the personification of six-piece outlaw metal band SCATTERED HAMLET. Known for their rowdy live shows featuring harmonicas, double and triple guitar attacks, and lots of whiskey, SCATTERED HAMLET has been described by Big Wheel Magazine as having “the feel and sound of the American South’s influence modernized for punk and metal consumption.”
Today, SCATTERED HAMLET has unleashed their music video for the track ‘Shelter’! ‘Shelter’ was produced by Grammy-nominated Jason Donaghy and mastered by the legendary Howie Weinberg (White Zombie, Slayer, Danzig). Keeping true to their loyal and growing fan base, the band took to social media and let the fans vote on which song would serve as the first video from the album. Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aqvgzw03ARI
‘Shelter’ is an autobiographical song that champions trucker speed, quitting your job and heading out on the highway – pretty much what SCATTERED HAMLET is all about! The video for ‘Shelter’ has been preceded by a series of behind-the-scenes “life on the road” videos released weekly, called Hell Rider TV.
According to frontman Adam Joad, a man who is known for performing on top of a beer keg with a shotgun converted into a microphone stand, “We’re pumped to finally get a video out there for the Skeleton Dixie album, we had been so busy touring, shooting a video always kept getting put on the back-burner.”
In addition to this video announcement, SCATTERED HAMLET is excited to announce a U.S. tour, hitting several markets this October. Fresh off a series of tour dates that included support for the Genitorturers and Wayland, combined with an appearance at this year’s Rocklahoma Festival along with industry heavyweights like Black Label Society, Kid Rock, Hell Yeah and Five Finger Death Punch, the band kicks off the tour on October 1st in Los Angeles, CA.

2014 Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley has made history with his new album Space Invader, which debuted at #9 on the Top 200 Chart this week. The LP scores the highest charting position of ANY Kiss solo album ever, and marks Frehley’s first return to the Top 10 since KISS’s 1998 Pyscho Circus reunion album. The album has also sold better in first week sales than Kiss’ recently released Kiss 40 album. Internationally, Space Invader has debuted #1 on the Independent Chart and #16 on the Top 200 Chart in Canada, Top 40 in Switzerland and Sweden, and hit a historic benchmark for the first time ever as a solo artist in Germany.
Space Invader, Frehley’s first studio album in five years, has also received praise from critics. Rolling Stone wrote, “Gene Simmons has claimed Ace Frehley doesn’t deserve to wear Kiss’ Kabuki clown paint, but the former Spaceman’s first solo LP in five years says otherwise,” while Associated Press hailed, “…the original Kiss lead guitarist has recorded his best solo album since his groundbreaking self-titled album in 1978.” Paste also confirmed, “Space Invader is a good rock album, and it’s an even better guitar record.”
Frehley stopped by The Tonight Show prior to his album release to sit in with legendary house band The Roots to perform his classic hit “New York Groove.” Watch here.
Space Invader features nine brand new original songs, including the first single, “Gimme a Feelin’,” as well as a cover of Steve Miller’s classic rock staple “The Joker.” Frehley also tapped long time friend and artist Ken Kelly to create the album art for Space Invader. Kelly created the iconic cover art for two of KISS’s best selling LPS, Destroyer (1976) and Love Gun (1977).
Widely known as the original “Space Ace” and founding guitarist for 16 cumulative years (over 2 tenures) of the multi platinum selling rock band KISS, Frehley is demonstrably the most popular original member. In addition to having the best selling solo album career (vintage or current) among the original foursome, Frehley’s self titled Ace Frehley (1978), went on to sell over one million copies, producing the only Top 40 single, “New York Groove,” from any of the legendary KISS solo albums. The massive hit was most recently featured in an episode of cult show Entourage and was also KISS’ second best selling download in 2012, besting such KISS Army anthems as “I Was Made For Lovin’ You,” “Beth” and “Calling Dr. Love” even after 36 years.
Since departing from KISS, Frehley went on to release four more solo albums and one live EP including his most recent effort, Anomaly in 2009, which debuted at #27 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Ace also released an autobiography titled “No Regrets,” which debuted at #10 on the NY Times Hardcover Non-Fiction best seller list in November 2011.
Before you get down to moshing in the privacy of your own home, do some serious partying in either Los Angeles or New York when Anthrax’s “Chile On Hell” live DVD is premieres on Monday, September 15, the day before its general release. And, not only will attendees be among the first to see the thrash-masters performing an extended set that features all the fan-favorites in front of a sold-out, rabid crowd in Santiago, Chile, but each event will feature a special Q&A – Scott Ian and “Chile On Hell’s” producer Jay Rustin at the L.A. screening, and Anthrax’s Frank Bello at New York’s.
Check out the “Chile On Hell” trailer here:
The premiere is free to fans who pre-order the “Chile On Hell” Blu-ray or DVD from either Vintage Vinyl in Fords, NJ, Looney Tunes in West Babylon, NY, or Amoeba Records in Los Angeles, CA. Each pre-order comes with one wristband that entitles the holder to attend the premiere. Wristbands are limited, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
The New York premiere will take place at 9:00PM ET at Cinema Village, 22 E. 12th Street; go to
http://ltcds.com/pre-orders/anthrax-chile-on-hell-dvd-pre-order-special-event/ …or to http://www.vvinyl.com/v/anthrax-chile-on-hell/5386 for all details.
…and the L.A. premiere is set for 9:00PM PT at the Downtown Independent Theatre, 251 S. Main Street; more details are available at
“Chile On Hell” will be released on Tuesday, September 16 (Megaforce), and features Joey Belladonna/vocals, Scott Ian/guitar, Charlie Benante/drums, Frank Bello/bass and Jon Donais/lead guitar performing at the Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile on May 10, 2013. The band performed an extended set that featured songs from Anthrax’s entire catalogue including “I Am The Law,” “Indians,” “Madhouse,” “Caught In A Mosh,” “The Devil You Know,” and “I’m Alive.” “Chile On Hell” was recorded in 5.1 Surround Sound, and will retail for $16.98.
“Santiago was the perfect place to film the show for this,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante. “When we’d played there in the past, we’d finish our set, play our encore and go back to the dressing room. But every time, the fans would continue to scream and cheer and clap. I mean, they went on and on, they wouldn’t stop. One time Scott and I walked out to the side of the stage just to watch what was going on in the audience, it was intense. Why wouldn’t we want to film a DVD in front of an audience like that?”
