Maybe Tobias Sammet underlined his name in the Metal market when rumors flooded the internet about his "strong consideration" in undergoing a sex change in 2005. Maybe it was just Edguy’s fist full of energetic German Power Metal that left fans and newbies thirsting for more. Whatever makes you think of Tobi – by rumors, because you’re a long time fan, or as a devoted hater of cheesy Power Metal, one thing is certain, don’t cut the guy short for his creative song writing, his immense stage presence and his talent.

ICED EARTH – Returning vocalist/god MATT BARLOW

Iced Earth – Vocalist Matt Barlow

Interview and transcription by HannTu

Live pics and interview pic by HannTu

One of the highlights of this year’s Bloodstock Open Air festival in England was the opportunity to see Iced Earth with Matt Barlow. Along with many other Iced Earth fans, I consider Matt Barlow to be the definitive voice of Iced Earth; and while Ripper Owens is a fine vocalist in his own right, the Iced Earth sound is pretty much incomplete without Matt’s soulful and emotional croon. When I was offered the chance to interview the man himself, I jumped at it, although I only had ten minutes.

The Iced Earth camp turned up late (stuck in traffic), and immediately Jon and Matt jumped off the bus to fulfil their publicity obligations, as true pros – even though they were due to be onstage in about two hours’ time. Matt looked pretty tired and flustered, but was anything but cold and distant, answering my somewhat inane questions with thoughtfulness and depth. Here’s the nine-minute interview…

THIN LIZZY – guitarist Scott Gorham

SCOTT GORHAM

INTERVIEW BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ AND JARNO HUOVILA

PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

After putting out three records as a trio, THIN LIZZY reinvented itself, to great success, as a four-piece featuring now the twin guitar leads of the American Scott Gorham and Scottish Brian Robertson. From that point on, Scott Gorham along with drummer Brian Downey, stuck with mastermind Phil Lynott until the band’s dissolution in 1983. Together they recorded nine classic studio albums (Nightlife in 1974, FIGHTING in 1975, JAILBREAK and JOHNNY THE FOX in 1976, BAD REPUTATION in 1977, BLACK ROSE in 1979, CHINATOWN in 1980, RENEGADE in 1981 and THUNDER AND LIGHTNING in 1983) and two live ones (LIVE AND DANGEROUS in 1978 and LIVE LIFE in 1983). Over the years, in addition to Robertson, Scott played alongside Gary Moore, Snowy White and finally John Sykes. Today, in tribute to their fallen comrade Phil Lynott, Gorham and Sykes continue to keep the THIN LIZZY name alive, touring all over world with legendary drummer Tommy Aldridge and bassist Francesco DiCosmo now completing the lineup. In between playing with THIN LIZZY Scott has, among other things, played with his own band 21 GUNS. Read on for Scott’s take on the different stages of his career!

AT THE GATES – Guitarist Anders Björler

Interview and live review by Luxi Lahtinen

Interview & live pictures by Luxi Lahtinen

Transcription by Tony Gabriel

Thanks to Mika "Mega" Kuusinen from Supersounds Music for booking us the interview 

A.T.G.4.JPG

The oldest Scandinavian open air festival, Ruisrock festival, was arranged for the 39th time, gathering circa 70 000 people together during three days. The festival covers many styles of music and that´s why it has always been a successful event financially for the organizers of the festival.

This year the festival had booked Nightwish, H.I.M., Hanoi Rocks, The 69 Eyes, Primal Scream, Amorphis, Life of Agony and The Ark as some of the festival´s main acts, but my personal interest was focused on the legendary Swedish thrashers At The Gates that finally put some fire under their set of reunion shows that were put on hold for some years due to Adrian´s (Erlandsson) commitments with his other band Cradle of Filth at that time.

I caught up with Anders at the venue, and managed to talk with him briefly about these reunion shows, what kind of timeframe At The Gates have to pull them through within a certain time before all of their other bands get activated again – and whether there´s even a tiny possibility for them to release one (or some) of these ongoing reunion shows as a DVD so that everyone could get a chance to witness them live, at least this one time.

Be sure to read a live review about them from the end of Anders´ interview as well… ;o)

Massacre have reactivated after being on hold since the last full length studio album. The legendary death metal squad have done a number of gigs as well as festival dates. Besides Massacre, the same members have founded a more death/punk-ish oriented group Denial Fiend, whose debut album THEY RISE was released by Ibex Moon. The five piece visited Wacken Open Air and played in front of huge crowd. The Massacre and Denial Fiend legendary frontman, Kam Lee, was the chosen a victim to tell more about the resurrection of Massacre and the formation of Denial Fiend.

Live at The Underworld

7th June 2008

Live pics and review by HannTu


The good folks over at Arcane Promotions put on this yearly event dedicated completely to celebrate and showcase the sweet and soothing strains of death metal. Previous years have seen Gorerotted, Vader, Avulsed, Abaddon Incarnate, Extreme Noise Terror, Akercocke and Prostitute Disfigurement take to the stage, and this year, Arcane Promotions managed a major coup by bringing Cryptopsy and Decrepit Birth to The Underworld for an evening of blast beats, inhuman growls, technical musicianship and some sheer fucking extreme atmosphere.

SCORPIONS: Live at Kotka, FINLAND 25.07 2008

KOTKAN MERIPÄIVÄT

25.07 2008 KOTKA, FINLAND

Kotkan Meripäivät is not such a festival where you can see too many metal or hard rock bands but sometimes the deviation approves all rules and this year the legendary Scorpions were headlining this three day festival. Scorpions are still continuing to tour support for bands latest release HUMANITY VOL 1, which came out over a year ago. In fact it was less than two months since Scorps last time played in Finland when they co -headlining Sauna Open Air -festival in Tampere but almost sold out audience in Kotka proved that there’s a huge demand for Scorpions in Finland.
