SAXON – Biff Byford

May 28th, 2009

Interview Conducted by Robert Williams

Videography Courtesy of Sandra Torres

 

The last time Saxon graced a stage in San Antonio, Texas was in 2002 when the long standing British Metal institution recorded several live tracks for the "Heavy Metal Thunder" release. It would be seven years and what would seem like forever before Saxon would return to the US. At last the band of Brits had returned to play three US concerts; kicking things off at the BB Kings venue in New York before passing through San Antonio to headline an outdoor festival at the Sunken Gardens Ampitheatre before  wrapping things up the next night at the Meridian Theater in Houston, Texas.

By the time you read this the band will be back in Europe headlining outdoor Heavy Metal festivals such as the upcoming Wacken Open Air in early August. Plans are tentatively underway to return to the States possibly on a package tour sometime later in the summer.

Legendary vocalist and Saxon co-founder Biff Byford sat down with me to discuss the bands current activities; including the newly released "Into The Labrinyth" album, an upcoming unplugged live release where the band will collaborate with a full symphony orchestra, the band’s unique Riff King YouTube contest, the early days of the NWOBHM scene and more…

Enjoy, and fill your heads with Heavy Metal Thunder!

Roadburn Festival – Tilburg Holland

Roadburn Festival

23 – 26 April 2009

013 Tilburg Holland


Roadburn has reached the status of an underground cult event amongst metal fans, arranged in a small idyllic town, Tilburg in Holland every year. This year’s Roadburn was nothing but an utter success as all the tickets were sold out within 45 minutes. Selling the tickets in such a short time was definitely a record. All in all 2500 people, when all bands and crews are added up, conquered the whole small town and its small bars and restaurants. The Roadburn festival offered a great deal of different kind of underground stuff covering from hard rock, space rock, stoner rock to industrial. All the mainstream metal styles don’t fit too well with the concept of Roadburn. However Metal-Rules made its debut visit to Roadburn to feel the atmosphere of obscure stoner spacy rock and sniff the smell of the weed.

Italian death metal squad Hour Of Penance’s latest album, THE VILE CONCEPTION, is a piece of utter death metal from beginning to end. The four-piece has already started working on the follow-up. The band’s leader Guilio Moschini goes back in time recalling how Hour Of Penance started out, why the band had to go through some line-up changes and finally sheds some light on working on the fourth album. THE VILE CONCEPTION is definitely a must-have for every die-hard death metal freak.

Torture Divison – Lord K

May 13th, 2009
by Anders Sandvall

 

td-logo_1.jpg

Time again to talk to the Swedish legend and one of the most important figures in the extreme metal genre Lord K. This time it is an up close and personal interview about a new band that Lord K has together with other well known metal figures from Sweden. Jörgen Sandström and Tobben Gustafsson are the names of the other members and they are known from acts like Entombed and Vomitory. Today this trio is working together in Torture Divison which is the most evil and deadly death metal act at the moment. When I and Lord K met up we talked about the band, live shows, the past and the future and why this band does things a bit different than other bands.

by Anders Sandvall

 

takara_logo_01.jpg

I had the opportunity to hear INVITATION TO FOREVER from Takara and it turned out to be a really good melodic metal album. Therefore I had to talk to the man behind the band, guitar player and band leader Neal Grusky. He was kind enough to let me do this interview with him. He answered questions about the band, the new lineup, label and much more.
