New challenges, new roads, forever heavy metal!
INTERVIEW AND LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA
German metal legends Accept are no strangers in Metal-Rules.com. We’ve always been extremely supportive for the band and we’ve had numerous articles and interviews released during the past years and here’s another one for you to read. The band released their latest opus BLIND RAGE in August. The critically acclaimed album debuted at number one on the German charts, making it the band’s first number one debut in their career and it’s seen great success all around the world. Accept opened the “Blind Rage” tour in Sweden in late September. A few days later I met the band’s founding member and guitarist Wolf Hoffmann in Tornio prior their second show in Finland. It’s time to talk, again, with Wolf about current things and dig into the past a bit as well. Read on!
Finnish melodic metal band Arkadia will release their debut album “Unrelenting” worldwide on November 7th, 2014 via Inverse Records. The album, which was recorded during winter 2014 and produced by Samu Oittinen at Fantom Studio, Ylöjärvi, Finland, is a manifestation of Arkadia’s relentless attitude since its foundation in 2003 and the journey to ever-larger stages.
SPIRAL MOTION, the new solo album by Andy Martongelli, will be released on 5th November. Andy unveiled some amazing guest musicians that played some killer solos on his new record.
- Michael Angelo Batio (Nitro)
- Dave Reffet (Guitar World Magazine)

The band comments: “This is definitely a dream come true for us, because, since day one, Dimension Zero has been one of our major influences, as well as “old” In Flames. So, have the privilege and opportunity to jam and get to know the guy who wrote so many great songs, riffs and iconic albums is unbelievable. We had so much fun! What a great artist and down to earth person he is. Skål för fan!”
San Diego, California based blues-metal rockers SEVENTRAIN, which features former members of CAGE, 24-7 SPYZ and TOURNIQUET, have officially started pre-production on their second album.

Today, California’s favorite death-laden horror hellions, EXHUMED, will take their sonic debauchery to the streets for a Fall run of US live invasions with extreme metal technicians Carcass and manic death thrashers Noisem. Set to commence in San Diego tonight at Brick By Brick, the Inked In Steel Tour 2014 will conquer nearly two dozen municipalities with additional audio infiltrations from death metal legends Obituary and Macabre on select dates. From there EXHUMED will return to Europe for further live devastation alongside Aborted, Origin and Miasmal.See confirmed shows below.
Comments guitarist/vocalist Matt Harvey, “We’ve been sequestered in our grimy rehearsal room, taking time out of our busy schedules of soul-crushing day jobs and DUI classes to tighten up our set for our upcoming US and European runs, and we’re getting seriously psyched for them! Our newest member, Matt ‘Slime’ Ferri is working out great on bass and vocals and we’ve got some killer new elements for our show that should make it an unsafe and insane way to spend your evening. See you in the Gore Zone, mutants!”
Finnish heavy metal sextet BATTLE BEAST have announced Unholy Savior as the name for their third studio album, which will be released in North America in early 2015.
“Music-wise, the songs have been expanded to a wider area as an effort to call out emotions close to those I myself had during the times of birth of these songs,” states BATTLE BEAST guitarist & backing vocalist Anton Kabanen about the new album’s musical offerings. “I thirst to go further as a human being and the music on this album represents a part of the ongoing spiritual journey – that’s what I tend to I call it – which is my road onward.”
“Like always, I wrote songs about the ‘Berserk’ series as well. The reason is that I can strongly relate to that, especially to certain characters and to their way of thinking and feeling,” Anton adds.
Ivar Bjørnson, guitarist, composer, and founding member of Norwegian progressive extreme metallers ENSLAVED, offers the first installment in the seven-part “Studio Of Mad Men” series shedding insight into the band’s upcoming as-yet-untitled thirteenth studio album, set for an early 2015 release.
