Every ticket holder will be able to send their request to the band with code provided to them following their purchase. Furthermore, it will be an all-request show, with a setlist picked by the fans! Other confirmed acts include SLAYER, ANTHRAX, LAMB OF GOD, APOCALYPTICA, EXODUS, SYMPHONY X, OVERKILL and many more!

A fourth stage will be added this year in order to showcase more artists, including many local bands, and to maximize the festival experience for the fans. And, after a ton of success last year, the Heavy Maniawrestlers will return to Heavy Montréal this summer. More details will be announced about this in the next few months.

Weekend passes for Heavy Montréal 2014 will go on sale on Friday, March 7th at noon via HeavyMontreal.com.

Behemoth @ The Forum

Behemoth @ The Forum

The weather has darkened, the north winds have arrived with an Arctic chill and that’s just outside the Kentish Town forum this evening. The venue itself is preparing for an onslaught of the deepest and most violent creatures it has seen for a long time, with bands from the black , death and gothic genres of metal with ballistic beats, harrowing screams and brutality that can only come from the most skilled of lyrical poetic masterminds.

DREAM THEATER: Live at Ice Hall, Helsinki

February 28th, 2014
by Marko Syrjala

Dream Theater

ICE HALL, HELSINKI

24’th of February 2014

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

Progressive metal maestros Dream Theater have always been diligent Finnish visitors. The band made its live debut in Finland  in 1995. This show on Feb.24th, 2014 was their tenth show here. The band released its 12’th studio album DREAM THEATER in September 2103 and it’s been a worldwide success on the charts. The album has received critical acclaim and the first single “The Enemy Inside” was nominated for a “Best Metal Performance” Grammy Award. Understandably, the recovery process took its time but it stands to reason that the band is doing very well without its founding member/drummer Mike Portnoy who left the band under difficult circumstances in 2011. It’s time of another “Evening with Dream Theater”!

Singer Lawrence Mackrory – Darkane

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

Thanks to Tom Hack for getting this interview done.
Thanks to Massacre Records for providing the promo pics.

 Darkane_promoshot5_2014_7

Here comes an update on what’s going on in the Darkane camp. The band recently released the album THE SINISTER SUPREMACY which took five years to get out to the masses. A lot has happened in the band during these years and the original singer Lawrence Mackrory (F.K.U.) has joined forces with the band again. I had the opportunity to have a really nice chat with Mackrory. The band is considered as one of the leading acts within the Swedish thrash metal scene.
