HAMMERFALL – THE TEMPLARS RETURN IN FORCE IN 2014

December 5th, 2013

logo_hammerfall.jpg
Two years ago Swedish Heavy Metal Templars HAMMERFALL announced a creative break after celebrating their 15th anniversary of their legendary debut ‘Glory To The Brave’. At the time Oscar Dronjak commented: “We are taking a pause to ensure that we have another 15 years ahead of us” Singer Joacim Cans added: “The plan is to use the year off to recharge our batteries and come back more vital than ever with a new album in 2014″ HAMMERFALL’s anniversary show in Dalhalla was recorded and released afterwards on DVD, followed by the final show at the Wacken Open Air. The German festival was the first show HAMMERFALL ever did outside of Sweden, and marked the beginning of the long and passionate relationship the band has enjoyed with the German metal fans. After the story started and the first chapter ended, there will also be the return: HAMMERFALL are proud to announce their performance at the 25th anniversary of the 2014 Wacken Open Air. This show won’t be a standard one! Oscar Dronjak explains: “It’s very fitting that, when Wacken celebrates its 25th anniversary, they will get a proper “Glory To The Brave” anniversary show. This will be a throwback show to the European gig that launched it all for us: Wacken Open Air 1997. The set list will consist of all the songs from the first album and we’ll of course add some newer songs at the end. We will do this very unique show at Wacken and nowhere else, so if you miss it, you missed it.”

ANNIHILATOR – Live at Club Nosturi, Helsinki, November 6th, 2013

Annihilator

November 6th, 2013

CLUB NOSTURI, HELSINKI

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

Annihilator is a Canadian thrash metal band that was formed in 1984 by guitarist/vocalist Jeff Waters. The band has sold over two million albums worldwide. Their debut album, ALICE IN HELL, is considered to be one of true classics of the thrash metal genre and Waters’ “extraordinary guitar playing skills” are widely recognized. Since formation, Annihilator has released thirteen studio albums and gone through many line-up changes. The band now consists of two official members, with Waters and rhythm guitarist/vocalist Dave Padden, who joined band ranks in 2003. The line-up is now completed with touring bassist Alberto Campuzano and drummer Mike Harshaw who also performed on the band’s latest album FEAST. Annihilator has enjoyed a strong upswing in Europe during the last few years. FEAST is their best-selling album since the late 80’s glory days and Annihilator concerts have been mainly sold out. Tonight’s show in Helsinki made no exception when over 600 metalheads find their way to witness Canadian’s finest performing in Club Nosturi. Welcome to the show!

Today, Australian black metal stronghold SEANCE RECORDS announces January 20th, 2014 as the international release date for GRAVEBORNE’s Through the Window of the Night. The Finnish horde’s second album, Through the Window of the Night displays GRAVEBORNE as a black metal Leviathan rising from the darkness to reduce divinity to ashes and unleash pure evil in the form of nine deadly psalms to Satan: ferocious and uncompromising black metal in pure ’90s style that will shake the heavenly spheres, joining destructive melody with unrelenting heaviness. Beware this ungodly wrath in the vein of early Immortal, Marduk, Dark Funeral, and Dawn, which features a collaboration with K-2T4-S of ..And Oceans. Read the rest of this entry »

Dark Tranquillity, Tristania and Sworn Against

@ The Underworld, London

7th November 2013

Review by Rowena Lamb

Dark Tranquility

Dark Tranquility

Camden. Underworld. Sold out. All very good words and very good reasons to get excited about tonight’s show. There was a queue from early on which is not surprising, especially given the size of the venue and the locality of the stage, it can be a bit of a bottle neck trying to get some floor space. Being sold out you knew it was going to be absolutely rammed which I can tell you, it certainly was.

‘Skies Are Falling’, the debut album from London metal band HORNET has garnered some great reviews. The seamless blend of punk, metal and rock makes it the ideal record to blast out of your windows and is well worth checking out as it’s packed with roof raising anthems. Our reviewer Becky Brown gave ‘Skies Are Falling’ 3/5 and said “Hornet have stormed into the metal scene with a whole new style, showing us a mix of punk, metal and rock that works perfectly together.”

Metal-Rules.com recently sat down with Hornet’s guitarist Tollef Rikje-Pearson and bassist Max Thompson to discuss their new single, their debut album, the band’s creative influences and more. Read on for the full interview…
