OPETH – Evolution XX

Words and pictures by Kyle Moore, the Metal Magnus & Sara Roggensack

Terminal 5 – New York, NY

April 7th, 2010

 

There’s the entire world of heavy metal in all its genres, evolutions, and extensive devolutions…and then there’s Opeth. The one band in all the world that embodies the essence of extreme metal while simultaneously eclipsing all confines of genre. Upon my first hearing of Opeth, I remarked “how can something so ugly be so beautiful at the same time?” Even outside their native realm of death metal, they have no peers or equals. The weakest album they ever released still stands leagues beyond the efforts of most, and no album of theirs can be called anything short of amazing. I shamelessly admit that Opeth is my favorite band, and that frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt is my personal musical idol, so my excitement was beyond containment when I learned they were performing a special 20th anniversary concert in my backyard. I’ve seen them in concert six times already, but I already knew this would be something beyond an ordinary show. In a statement, Opeth said that they would perform their breakthrough album BLACKWATER PARK in its entirety, followed by a second (yes, a second set!) digging deep into their back catalogue.

Asphyx – Dantes Helsinki Finland

Dantes Nightclub

The 19th of March 2010

Helsinki Finland

The Finnish underground gig organization KRK has arranged a number of awesome gigs and festival events during the past few years. They managed to get the legendary Canadian black metal maniacs Blasphemy to Finland last autumn. Besides these big ones, there have been a plenty of smaller underground gigs arranged by the same organization. For example the second visit of the mighty Dutch death metal legends Asphyx to Finland was arranged by KRK. Asphyx made a debut visit last summer at the Jalometalli festival, which was a tremendous experience of the old school death metal given by Asphyx. Therefore a second visit was definitely welcomed for sure.

PRIMAL FEAR

Interview with Mat Sinner and Ralf Scheepers



Interviewed by EvilG

For many years now, one of my favorite bands is Primal Fear. I finally found the time to squeeze in a long overdue interview with bassist Mat and vocalist Ralf on the eve of the band’s return to North America where they will be playing a number of shows throughout the USA and Canada in May/June (2010).  Most of the discussion is about their newest album, the upcoming tour, and the latest news from both Ralf and Mat.

MICHAEL MONROE: Live at Club Tavastia, HELSINKI

April 7th, 2010
by Marko Syrjala

MICHAEL MONROE

Club Tavastia, HELSINKI

1’st of APRIL 2010

mmcover2.jpg

 

REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

It’s been about ten years since Michael Monroe last played a solo show in Helsinki.  That’s of course because of Hanoi Rocks rebirth which started in 2001. Hanoi Rocks released three successful studio albums before they decided to disband again in 2009 after a series of sold out shows in Club Tavastia. Unlike his former colleague Andy McCoy, who announced his very short live Real McCoy project almost right away, Michael decided to take to some time before getting  back in action.  In January of 2010 Michael announced his new all star band which included: Ginger from The Wildhearts, former Hanoi Rocks / Demolition 23 bassist Sam Yaffa, guitarist Todd Youth and another former Demolition 23 member Jimmy Clarke. This new band first did a handful of successful shows in the USA before heading back in Europe. They arrived in Finland in late March to play six shows with the renewed line up including New York Dolls guitarist Steve Conte and and drummer Karl Rosenfist.

MEGADETH – Dave Mustaine

April 1st, 2010

Interview with Dave Mustaine

Conducted by Robert Williams

Videography courtesy of Sandra Torres

For the first time ever, North American thrash metal fans are witnessing Megadeth’s monumental "Rust In Peace" album performed live in it’s entirety as part of "The Rust In Peace 20th Anniversary Tour". A live in-concert DVD has been filmed already as part of the North American leg of the tour and plans are underway to take "The Rust In Peace 20th Anniversary Tour" to Mexico and South America. With the return of bassist Dave Ellefson rounding out perhaps Megadeth’s strongest lineup to date, this current tour absolutely scorches everything in it’s path and is not to be missed. Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recently took the time to talk metal with Metal-Rules.com and filled us in on the return of Dave Ellefson, "The Rust In Peace 20th Anniversary Tour", the launch of Megadeth radio as well as his upcoming autobiography.

Theatre of Tragedy / Where Angels Fall / To-Mera / Pythia / The Mariana Hollow – Underworld, London

April 1st, 2010
by Hanntu

THEATRE OF TRAGEDY

with WHERE ANGELS FALL

and To-Mera, Pythia and The Mariana Hollow

The Underworld, Camden, UK

14th March 2010

Words by Ben Spencer

Live pictures by James G @ Altercarnated Photography 

Theatre Of
Tragedy was a band that reminded me of my long haired, gothic trench
coat wearing youth. Between the ages of 17-18, I was gradually treading
through the gothic genre of music that was originally sparked by
symphonic metal band Nightwish and their CENTURY’S CHILD album. This
album unlocked a genre of music at the time that I was ignorant of and
yet longed to pursue. My journey began with Lacuna Coil, Tristania and  Flowing Tears. One day I came across an album cover where a white
rose lay across a red one with the italic font ‘Theatre of Tragedy’. This
band intrigued me and so I very quickly obtained this album along with
the more cohesive and better produced AEGIS album. My interest in this
particular genre of music desensitised over the course of the next year
and without sight or sound of these guys on music channels, I merely
assumed that their flames had extinguished with the changing of times.
To discover that the band was still around and that their show at Camden
Underworld would in fact be their last was an opportunity I did not
want to miss out on.
