Skid Row

Can bands that reached the heady heights of rock and metal fame in the Eighties and Nineties still be relevant today? More importantly, can they still kick ass? That’s the question hanging in the air at the Limelight prior to Ugly Kid Joe and Skid Row’s co-headlining gig tonight. Read the rest of this entry »

 tears_of_marty_promo_2013_4

The symphonic/goth metal act Tears Of Martyr recently released their second album TALES. I got interested of the band when I heard TALES because the album is excellent. I hooked up with singer Berenice Musa in order to get to know the band and their history. The band comes from the Canary Island but lives now in Madrid so it was obvious that I had to find out what the Spanish metal scene are up to. Read the rest of this entry »

Legendary James Christian (House Of Lords) has finally released a solo album. It took him nine years to finish LAY IT ALL ON ME and is long waited for by the fans and myself. Since I think Mr Christian is an amazing artist I got in touch with him in order to get to know a little about the new album and the story behind it. Read and enjoy what the master of AOR music has to say.

Magnus Rising – The Drill Music Video Released

November 2nd, 2013
by EvilG

Magnus Rising recently teamed up with music video powerhouse and scene favorite, Gene Greenwood to record the video for “The Drill”, the first single from their new album Whatever It Takes. Right from the beginning, this video was destined to be everything that is rock and roll. The vibe, the sound and of course the girls. The setting was rustic, grungey, hell it was borderline filthy. But it was perfect. Watch it out now!

Just wanted to send out a warm welcome to our new friends who downloaded ‘Whatever It Takes’ from the Talking Metal Podcast. Stay connected and spread the word. Like our Page on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter

In case you missed it, the new album is now available for streaming. Listen to the complete album.
Whatever It Takes is also available on iTunesRdioSpotifyAmazon and CDbaby.

Blood & Iron – Ashish Shetty (Guitars, Bass)

Blood & Iron – Ashish Shetty (Guitars, Bass)

Interviewed by Aaron Yurkiewicz

Ashish Shetty - Guitars, Bass

Ashish Shetty – Guitars, Bass

When presented with a moniker like Blood & Iron, there’s a certain degree of implied comfort that comes along with it – you know you’re probably gonna get some epic metal. And some epic metal ye will receive on Blood & Iron’s recently released VOICES OF ETERNITY. Some quick history for the uninformed – based out of Bangalore, India, Blood & Iron trace their origins back to 2005 and started releasing music independently shortly thereafter. Bred on a steady diet of classic metal, VOICES OF ETERNITY is actually the band’s third album, took 2 years to make, and features 7 contributing artists spread across 3 countries. That, dear readers, is what you called commitment to your craft. Summoning the inspiration in the most traditional of veins, Blood & Iron straddle the line between classic Maiden/Priest sensibilities, with the complexity and nuance of early Savatage/Queensryche, but strictly the pre-90’s material from said bands. It’s not always a perfect execution, but it’s pretty friggin’ respectable effort.

We pick up the story with guitarist/bassist Ashish Shetty.

Motörhead postpone forthcoming European tour due to Lemmy’s health

October 29th, 2013
by EvilG

Motorhead - Hki17.JPGMotörhead have cancelled their upcoming Euro tour. Here’s an update from Lemmy explaining the situation…

“I have to sadly let you know that Motörhead has had to postpone the forthcoming European tour until early next year, 2014.

We have made the decision because I am not quite ready to hit the road yet, and am working my way back to full fitness and rude health. Don’t worry – I’m not about to start promoting veganism and alcohol-free beverages, but it is fair to say that I personally have been reconfiguring areas of my life to make sure I can come back fitter and stronger than ever.

It disappointed me tremendously to have to say I wasn’t quite ready to hit the road yet, but not nearly as much as it would’ve disappointed me to go out, play some average shows and watch my health give way long before the tour was over! When people come to see a Motörhead tour, they expect a Motörhead show, and that is exactly what you will get as soon as I am fit and ready to rumble.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated…and know that I’m getting stronger and stronger every day, so watch out next spring Europe and we will see you then.

Thank you all,

Lemmy”
