Clutch

It may say The Forum above the door, but tonight this is the church of Clutch. Say hallelujah and enter all ye with the luck to have a ticket; it’s promised that you will leave changed. If they call rock a religion then Clutch are surely some offshoot branch that’s not always widely acknowledged but really touch something inside the attracted masses. They say God has a plan – well Clutch must feature in there somewhere.

Guitarist/band leader Pepe – Hatesphere

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

Thanks to Tom Hack for setting up the interview.
Thanks to Massacre Records for providing the promo pictures.

 hatesphere_promo_2014_1

Denmark’s deadliest thrash metal weapon Hatesphere released their 8th album last year called MURDERLUST. I had the amazing opportunity to talk to the only remaining original member guitarist/band leader Pepe and together we handled subjects like the new album, the co-operation with legendary producer Tue Madsen and the line-ups that have come and gone amongst other things. Enjoy!

GAMMA RAY and Rhapsody of Fire live in Helsinki

Tour poster

23’rd of April 2014

CLUB TAVASTIA, HELSINKI

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA AND ARTO LEHTINEN

The Gamma Ray / Rhapsody of Fire package tour was certainly one of the most anticipated power metal gigs in the spring in Finland.  Gamma Ray just released their album EMPIRE OF THE UNDEAD which is their strongest album in ages and Rhapsody of Fire now finally played in Helsinki for the first time since 2001, so it wasn’t surprising that the show in club Tavastia sold out a long time ago. It left in the air the question of whether the bands should have played more than one gig in Finland this time.
