From Hell’s Heart – The Perfect Supergroup (May 2009)

From Hell’s Heart: May 2009

"The Perfect Supergroup" 
From Hells Heart...

The topic for May is "The Perfect Supergroup." We each played god and imagined what would make a perfect supergroup. Looking at the wide range of metal styles, time periods, and skill levels, the choices and line-up possibilities are endless. To keep things consistent, here’s the guardrails we used for our selection process: 

1) Musician can be either alive or living.

1) One musician per instrument, except for guitar (you can choose up to two).

2) For the musicians in your supergroup, you can choose from a particular era if you like. 

Who would be in your ‘super group’?

Interview by Theis Rytoft Nielsen

Chris from Svartsot

Svartsot is a Danish metal band that plays folk metal merged with death and black elements and is signed by Napalm Records. Their first album was highly praised around Europe earning the description “The new wave of folk metal” along with Swiss Eluveitie. Their whole style is based on the Viking Age as they dress up in clothes related to that period. Along with that, the texts are about Nordic tales and mythology.

Cris Frederiksen is currently the only active original Svartsot member left in the band. Four members decided to part with the band in December 2008.

Interview with guitarist Olavi Mikkonen

Interview conducted and transcribed by HannTu

Amon Amarth finally return to the UK on a headlining tour, on the back of an unbelievably good seventh studio album, TWILIGHT OF THE THUNDER GODS, and I was eager to get some of the guys’ thoughts. I got to speak to Olavi Mikkonen, one of their two guitarists. His English wasn’t amazing, but he was friendly and very good-natured, great to speak to.

Interview conducted and transcribed by HannTu

Alex Webster is one of the most well-known and respected musicians in the metal genre, and despite being the founding member and principal songwriter of one of the most influential and popular bands in death metal, he’s supremely down to earth and friendly. We had a great long chat about Cannibal Corpse’s new album EVISCERATION PLAGUE (already shaping up to be one of the better death metal releases of 2009) and about his personal approach to his music and his passion, Cannibal Corpse.

Metallica / Machine Head / The Sword – O2 Arena, London

Live review by HannTu

Metallica return to the O2 Arena in London for the third time in a matter of months, their last visit a mere three weeks ago. The DEATH MAGNETIC tour has taken them around the world, but London must be pretty special to get two dates to itself.

The O2 itself is a magnificent arena, and the concept of having the stage in the centre surrounded by the fans is brilliant, allowing the band to wander all around and for the fans to get a good look at everyone.

First time seeing Metallica. Excited? You bet!!!

Rob Thorne of Sacred Oath

Rob Thorne of Sacred Oath

Interviewed by EvilG

Interview questions by EvilG and Waspman

Sacred Oath are one of those bands that you wish you wouldn’t of missed the boat on back in the mid-80′s. Growing up in that period here in Canada, it was hard to hear new stuff outside of what your friends and you found, what was on the "Power Hour" and of course the main print zines of that time. So better late than never to discover what this band did 20+ years ago and to now discover the new and improved version of the band which are back with a vengeance to more than recapture old glory, but to take the band to the next level. I recently spoke to guitarist and vocalist Rob Thorne about the band’s reformation, rejuvenation and rebirth!

TOBY KNAPP

Toby Knapp

Interview conducted by Robert Williams

From his early beginnings at Shrapnel Records with his debut offering "Guitar Distortion", through his impressive run as a Century Media recording artist with his power metal outfit Onward; Toby Knapp remains a force to be reckoned wit in the underground metal community. Fresh off an ill fated tour as a session guitarist for the Swedish melodic death metal band Soilwork, Toby is as busy as ever working on music for Godless Rising, continuing his solo legacy and as you will soon learn has become a staunch defender of "American Metal" sure to leave some Swedish counterparts – ahem – pissed off…

Originally planning to meet in San Antonio on his birthday during the Soilwork tour, I received word from Toby himself that he would have to cancel as he left the road after the Canadian dates. Toby did however make time in his hectic schedule for the following chat…
