Trey Azagthoth – The mastermind of MORBID ANGEL

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

Live Pictures by Luxi Lahtinen

 

Morbid Angel are planning to enter a studio this year to record their long-awaited follow-up album to HERETIC, that was released 2003 - already 6 years ago! The band´s next studio album will also see David Vincent returning back to the Morbid Angel ranks, for the first time in 14 years as far as recording a studio album is concerned – recording the next Morbid Angel album together with Trey and Pete, and surely also making it all a bit more exciting to the fans of the band.

I contacted Trey Azagthoth through Myspace, and Trey was kind enough to give a brief survey into Morbid Angel´s current situation with plans to record a new Morbid Angel opus sometime during this year. And keep in mind, the forthcoming Morbid Angel album won´t be entitled IBLIS THE GREAT either as it has been speculated quite a bit around the internet… ;o)

Rusty Cooley

Interview Conducted By Robert Williams

Videography Courtesy Of Sandra Torres

 

A band is only as strong as the sum of it’s parts, and such is the case of the Houston, Texas progressive metal group Outworld. Currently on hiatus after some key lineup changes with the departure of longtime keyboard player Bobby Williamson and erstwhile vocalist Carlos Zema who since joined the David Shankle Group only to depart a short time later, the duststorm surrounding Outworld and the tremendous amount of momentum they had going is starting to clear up, and as the dust settles there can be little doubt that the key driving force behind Outworld is/was guitar virtuoso Rusty Cooley.

Rusty had a tremendous 2008, filled with notable endorsements from Dean Guitars and ProTone pedals. A successful two disc instructional DVD set through RockHouse Method and several guest appearances showcasing his masterful guitar acrobatics. With a level head on his shoulders he embraces the upcoming opportunities afforded to him in the future, and stands poised to divide and conquer in 2009.

GYP CASINO

Interview by Marko Syrjälä

The Swedish born drummer, Gyp Casino, will forever be best known as a member of the original, and arguably the best, lineup of the legendary Finnish band HANOI ROCKS. He played on the bands first three albums, BANGKOK SHOCKS, SAIGON SHAKES, HANOI ROCKS in 1981, ORIENTAL BEAT and SELF DESTRUCTION BLUES both in 1982. His tenure with the band culminated in getting fired over an on-stage fight with the band leader Andy McCoy [the reason why he isn't credited for his work on SELF DESTRUCTION BLUES despite playing all the drums].
He then went on to play with the Swedish ROAD RATS and later ROLENE, together with future HANOI ROCKS members Conny Bloom and Andy Christell. Later on he got to enjoy great success, both in the charts aswell as live, all over Sweden with PELLE ALMGREN before again joining up with Andy McCoy in his band LIVE AMMO and putting out the BUILDING ON TRADITION album in 1995. He currently runs a business in Stockholm where he was gracious enough to recount some interesting tales from his career with HANOI ROCKS, ANDY MCCOY’S ALIVE AMMO, ROAD RATS, ROLENE, etc.

WHIPLASH – Tony Portaro and Joe Cangelosi

TONY PORTARO & JOE CANGELOSI - NEW COMING OF THE LEGENDARY WHIPLASH

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

 Whiplash promo3.jpg

The true heyday of thrash metal was naturally the 80´s. Many great thrash bands were formed during the 80´s, and also many great thrash albums were released back then that are considered as some of the genre´s most classic and strongest  albums even these days. Exodus´ BONDED BY BLOOD, Vio-lence´s ETERNAL NIGHTMARE, Slayer´s REIGN IN BLOOD, Dark Angel´s DARKNESS DESCENDS, Metallica´s RIDE THE LIGHTNING, Testament´s THE LEGACY, Forbidden´s FORBIDDEN EVIL, Anthrax´s AMONG THE LIVING, Kreator´s PLEASURE TO KILL, Destruction´s INFERNAL OVERKILL – and just dozens of other releases from that particular era, were definitely some of those genre-defining albums that many today´s releases often get compared to – and that´s just really understandable when overall thinking what thrash metal is really all about: Violence, rage and aggression.

For some strange reason, Whiplash from Passaic, New Jersey, never seemed to reach the same cult status with their releases as some of their fellow thrashers did in some other thrash bands at that time. Whiplash 1st two albums, POWER AND PAIN and TICKET TO MAYHEM were both some of the most frenzied, rawest, most powerful and unstoppable slaps of intense speed/thrash metal from those days that hardly paled in comparison to any other albums from the same genre, but were still somehow left a couple of steps behind the shadows of many other speed/thrash releases back then. Fair to say, the world isn´t always that justified place for everyone, I guess.

Whiplash´s last studio album, THRASHBACK, was released in 1998 with 3 Tonys (R.I.P. Tony Bono), and I bet many of us already thought we would never see another Whiplash album any more.

But as so many old thrash acts that undoubtedly lived their gloriest days in the´80´s before splitting up, have made their comebacks on the verge of new millenium and released decent albums, it was finally Whiplash´s turn to return back to form and start writing new songs again.

Tony Portaro, Joe Cangelosi (ex-Kreator, ex-Massacre, etc.) and Rick Day (ex-Primal Scream) are currently preparing songs for Whiplash´s 7th full-lenght album, titled UNBORN AGAIN – and before it will hit the stores around the world, let both Tony and Joe tell more about this process, plus the past days of the band a bit as well…
