RAM present brand new video clip for “I Am The End”!

July 15th, 2013
by EvilG

10th anniversary show in Gothenburg announced!

Swedish heavy metal act RAM have just recently shot a video for the song “I Am The End” from their latest release, “Death.” Metal Blade Records has partnered with Revolver Magazine to premiere the video in North America.

“I Am The End” was directed by Martin Högdal, edited by Leonard Palmestål and written by Oscar Carlquist – the same team that worked on the “Flame Of The Tyrants” video. The song was written by Harry Granroth and Oscar Carlquist.

Oscar Carlquist comments on the video: “The ‘I Am The End’ video shows a completely different side of the cinematic vision of RAM than what we created in the ‘Flame Of The Tyrants’ video. This video displays a lot of esoteric aspects, and has many layers of symbolism that will not be seen at once. We thank everybody involved for their outstanding dedication to making flesh out of our disturbed visions.”

Fans can order “Death” and watch the video for “Flames Of The Tyrants” at metalblade.com/ram.

CLUTCH @ The Forum

Clutch

With Sons of Icarus and General

@ Kentish Town Forum

11th July 2013

Review by Ashlinn Nash

Photography by Michelle Murphy

Listening to the feel good, slick sounds of clutch without a beer in hand and relaxing sunshine is defiantly not what the crowd wanted off the cards tonight. Luckily for the Maryland four piece the weather has been glorious and the barrels have been flowing. As you entered the forum tonight a real sense of united community was seen within the crowd, as groups of families gathered by the merchandise stall and bar alike.

SWEDEN ROCK 2013

SWEDENROCK FESTIVAL 2013

Article and pictures by Arto Lehtinen and Marko Syrjälä

“Welcome to the show” – welcomed by KISS  when headlining the second day of the Sweden Rock fest. Well, once again the Finnish Metal-Rules.com team made their annual roadtrip to Sweden Rock. Metal Rules has covered Swedenrock since 2001, therefore it is quite logical to cover the festival again. The 2013 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide. It has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article on several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The weather was tremendous during these four days. The Metal-Rules.com team was there witnessing bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Rock on!

ARTILLERY signs to Metal Blade

July 11th, 2013
by EvilG

Metal Blade welcomes legendary Danish Thrashers ARTILLERY to their arsenal!

Denmark’s ARTILLERY is one Europe’s earliest thrash metal exports, and their contribution to the bourgeoning genre is difficult to ignore. The Danish quartet successfully managed to fuse an abrasive brutality with technicality and strong melodies, with the noteworthy guitar leads of the Stützer-brothers serving as highlights.

ARTILLERY was formed in the Copenhagen suburb of Taastrup, Denmark in 1982 by Michael and Morten Stützer. Since then, ARTILLERY have gone thru numerous line-up changes and released six studio LPs. The first period of ARTILLERY‘s existence gave the world the three classic albums Fear of Tomorrow, Terror Squad and By Inheritance, featuring some of the finest moments of thrash metal Europe has ever put out.

After an eight-year hiatus ARTILLERY returned in style in 1999, sounding as fresh and hungry as ever before without sounding like one of those nostalgia acts. The three albums B.A.C.K., When Death Comes and My Blood put ARTILLERY not only back on the map, but also to the top of their genre.

ARTILLERY comments on the signing: “Artillery is very proud to have signed with legendary Metal Blade Records! Metal Blade is the company who released Metallica’s first song, Slayer’s and Trouble’s debut records and who in their line-up have our fellow Danes Mercyful Fate/King Diamond signed. With their over 30 years of experience in the business this is a big step forward for Artillery. We can’t wait to have our new album released on Metal Blade, and we are looking forward to promote it with our first American tour ever. We also want to thank Metal Mind and Agnieszka for the last 5 years!” Read the rest of this entry »

KROKUS – Bassist Chris von Rohr

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Switzerland’s most successful hard rock band of all time, Krokus, are back with their new album DIRTY DYNAMITE. The new album presents Krokus at their best. It’s all about bluesy hook-filled hard rock performed by the classic line up of the band: vocalist Marc Storace, guitarists Mark Kohler, Fernando von Arb and Mandy Mayer and bassist Chris von Rohr. The band enjoyed large international success in the early 80’s. During that period the band released such classic albums as ONE VICE AT TIME, METAL-RENDEZ VOUS and HEADHUNTER but later on the band went through several personnel changes and slowly their popularity started to vanish. The classic line up announced re-union in 2008 and the band released album HOODOO in 2010. It’s been five years since the reunion and as said earlier the band is now back with DIRTY DYNAMITE. Krokus performed at Sweden Rock festival in early June and there I was able to sit down and discuss various topics with bands founding member Chris von Rohr. Read on!

Can you hear the Thunder?

July 10th, 2013
by EvilG

Thunderstone - live10.jpgRumours abound of the reactivation of the Finnish group Thunderstone.  As of today, the band’s Facebook page carries the rather cryptic message “very soon”… leading to speculation that big news is just around the corner.

Thunderstone has not released an album since 2009’s DIRT METAL which saw the introduction of new vocalist Rick Altzi who replaced longtime Thunderstone voice Pasi Rantanen.

Metal-Rules.com will monitor the situation and will post updates as they unfold.
