FAITH NO MORE : Live at Kaisaniemi Park, Helsinki FINLAND – June.24 2009

FAITH NO MORE

June 24, 2009

KAISANIEMI PARK, HELSINKI -FINLAND

REPORT BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ AND ARTO LEHTINEN

PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Faith No More called it quits in 1998 after the ALBUM OF THE YEAR had seen the light of day and the tours were completed. Since then it has been speculated about the possible return or comeback for years and even the band members had ruled out the whole reunion thing several times. Singer Mike Patton was always asked in several interviews about a possible return, but he rather focused on his own bands Fantomas, Mr. Bungle, and Tomahawk etc. than teaming up with the old band members. However, some things should remain unchanged and untouched, but it is just amazing to see how some minds can change after all and Faith No More truly returned to the limelight.

Drummer Donald Tardy

Interviewed by Alan Gilkeson

obituary drummer Donald Tardy

One of the genre’s great originators, Floridian Death Metal band Obituary still just keep it simple with groovy rhythms and catchy riffs. Their latest album DARKEST DAY does what it’s predecessors did, make you bang you head in metal fury. Very humble and down to earth, they don’t wear the legend label well, but with a simplistic approach to song writing, reverence of other legends, and a strong work ethic, they continue to bring their unique brand of metal to a wanting fan base. Here’s our interview with drummer Donald Tardy.

Warbringer – John Kevill

Interviewed by Alan Gilkeson

wb-walking.jpg 

Warbringer’s second full length album, WAKING INTO NIGHTMARES, pounces you with ten slick, heavy hitting, super riffing rageful songs. A modern Thrash record that harkens back to the genre’s heyday, yet makes it sound brand new. In spite of Gary Holt’s emphasis on guitars, and they do crush, the real star of the record is vocalist John Kevill. He’s ferocious and agressive and hits all the pockets. Here’s my interview with him.

Stratovarius – Jens Johansson

Stratovarius – Jens Johansson

Interviewed by EvilG, Transcription by Duke

Stratovarius-JJ-4.jpg

Keyboardist and (often) mouthpiece for Statrovarius, Jens Johansson, spoke to us about the triumphant return of Finland’s premier power metal band. As many a fan and even casual observers know, this band has been though a lot of inner turmoil over the few years. The band had been on ice, near death, or almost defunct for a while. Whether it was because of their former label going tits up or the mental stability of now former guitarist and band visionary, Timo Tolkki, the dust has finally settled and from it all the band (sans Tolkki) is back and have returned with their strongest album since INFINITE (2000). We spoke to Jens about the new album and how it was that the band which was teetering on the edge are now back to restore and hopefully take the band onwards to new horizons.

Now the stage is set for Manimal to surprise the Metal world when the album is officially released on June 19th, 2009.

From Hell’s Heart: June 2009

"My Unpopular Opinion" 
From Hells Heart...

Each of us took the opportunity to break from the pack and voice our unpopular or out of step views on anything metal related, like “Judas Priest is totally overrated,” “FORBIDDEN is the best Sabbath album ever,” or “RELOAD is the bestest ‘tallica album and they need to wear more green eyeliner again! harhar!”  Here’s what the staff of metal rules had to say……

Pestilence – The Underworld, London

June 1st, 2009
by Hanntu

Pestilence

with Vreid and The New Dominion

Live at The Underworld

12th April 2009

Live review and pics by HannTu

Atheist and Cynic in 2006. Pestilence in 2008. I can see a pattern starting to emerge…In all seriousness though, unless there’s cloning technology that will bring us back Chuck Schuldiner and resurrect Death, fans of old school progressive death metal have pretty much been in heaven over the last year or so. Cynic playing Wacken and releasing a new album, Pestilence releasing a new album and returning to the touring circuit, and a new Atheist album on the cards…incredible.

The resurrection of Pestilence probably raised the most eyebrows though, and frontman/guitarist Patrick Mameli moved quickly to quell any rumours that him and Martin van Drunen had made up and reunited under Pestilence’s banner. In fact, Tony Choy is the only person in the current line-up to have played in Pestilence before. But no matter, their recently released album RESURRECTION MACABRE promises much for the future of these Dutch guys.

Thanks to the dedication of Paul and Felicity at Arcane Promotions (the people who bring the excellent Deathfest annually to London), we had the chance to see Pestilence right here on our doorstep, instead of traipsing over half of Europe to catch them at festivals – although no doubt we’ll be doing that in the summer anyway!
