I don’t normally waste my time writing less than positive reviews, but after the initial disappointment of the night, anger has set in.

ACE FREHLEY -Live at Sheffield, U.K

April 27th, 2008
by Marko Syrjala

FRONT.jpg 

ACE FREHLEY

10.04.2008

The Corporation, Sheffield, UK

After leaving KISS in the aftermath of THE ELDER, the ill-conceived and, at the time at least, ill-received concept album, and doing a Euro promo tour for CREATURES OF THE NIGHT -album in 1982 Ace took his time before taking the world by storm with the brilliant first FREHLEY’S COMET record. After a second studio effort by Frehley’s Comet, Ace put out another disc under his own name, titled TROUBLE WALKIN. Many things have changed for Ace since the golden years of the ’80s. After some darker times in the early ’90s Ace finally buried the axe with his old KISS band mates long enough to participate in the enormously successful reunion tour in 1996 after which, in 1998, KISS released their new PSYCHO CIRCUS album. Unfortunately this reunion of the four original members survived only long enough to record one album but they still managed to unleash one last "farewell" tour in 2001. KISS of course is still touring every now and then, sans Ace and Peter Criss, with stand-in players now filling their shoes.

Seeing more and more death metal bands do gigs in Finland is more than welcomed. Even though the glorious years of Death metal goes back to the early 90’s, but it is still overwhelming to see some bands don’t give up any inch. Above all Massive Music and its Finnish booking agents have done an utter cult task when arranging this type of tour in Finland.

Thorium Guitarist Allan Tvedebrink

April 17th, 2008
by Anders Sandvall

THORIUM_logo.jpg 

 

Danish old school death metal band Thorium is back with a vengeance. FERAL CREATION is their first album in six years and when I witnessed the release-party performance I knew that I simply had to have an interview with these Danes. The guitarist Allan Tvedebrink was kind enough to agree to an interview, so for all extreme metal lovers out there, here it comes, the first interview ever with Thorium in metal-rules.com

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

Thanks to Bianca Anhalt Jacobsen at Target Distribution for setting up this interview

Thanks to Target Distribution for the promo pictures of the band

Paganfest UK 2008 – KOKO Camden, London

KOKO Camden, London

April 6, 2008

All live pics and review by HannTu

Appropriately enough, it was clear and slightly snowy the evening of Paganfest, and with a 5pm start, there was ample time for all five bands to show their quality. It was a night for singing, dancing and some rocking heavy metal! As far as I was concerned, this was a perfect night: firstly, the lights were amazing, meaning I captured some great shots and secondly, the bouncers let us stay the entire show in the photo pit. The downside is that I rarely took any notes, so the report will be slightly short on words. But big on pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. Enjoy, as I did.

IRON MAIDEN – Somewhere Back In Time: The Powerslave Interviews

IRON MAIDEN - Somewhere Back In Time: The Powerslave Interviews

Somewhere Back In Time: The Powerslave Interviews

By Gueneviere

The following are a series of interviews done with all the members of Iron Maiden just prior to the U.S. release of the watershed 5th album, Powerslave, circa Autumn of 1984. At the time, the band was also in the midst of touring Europe in support of the same album. (The tour had already taken them “Behind the Iron Curtain” into Poland, a first for a western heavy rock band at the time, and an event which also resulted in a public relations coup and a documentary later shown on MTV, etc.)

Kamelot / Firewind / Forever Slave – Islington Academy, London

Islington Academy, London

4th April 2008

All live pics and review by HannTu 

One of the front-runners of US Power Metal, Kamelot kicked off their second European tour in support of THE GHOST OPERA here in London. Billed as the Rule The World Tour 2008, this time they bring along guitar virtuoso Gus G and his band Firewind, who are perennial favourites here in London, and are always guaranteed a good reception. Opening for them are Forever Slave, a Spanish goth metal band, who stepped in to replace Visions of Atlantis at the last minute. Incidentally, the last time Kamelot were in London, Sean Tibbetts, standing in for regular bassist Glenn Barry, dislocated his knee. It gives a new meaning to the theatrical community’s phrase “Break a leg!”, so I’ll go for a simple “Good luck” tonight. And so, ladies and gentlemen and people at the front, welcome all to curtain call!

South By Southwest (SXSW) 2008

April 8th, 2008
by EvilG

SXSW

By Robert Williams

South By Southwest (SXSW) is an annual music and film conference/festival held yearly in beautiful Austin, Texas. In the 21 years of its existence, SXSW has served as a launching pad for many unknown bands turned media darlings overnight. For one week in the month of March each year bands from all over the world gather in downtown Austin and showcase their music, their craft, for record executives, media big wigs, and most importantly in my opinion, music lovers!

This all sounds like a splendid and festive occasion with the exception of one detail. SXSW has almost exclusively all but overlooked metal and its many subgenres for its entire existence.

Now I won’t lie. In years past I have seen some cool showcases. Century Media and Relapse usually cart their bands into town, and scattered about my 12 year tenure in Austin I have seen some notable showcases featuring among others In Extremo, Sol Evil, Children Of Bodom, and Grey Skies Fallen. But when 1,400 bands come to town for one week in March each year, you would hope at least, I don’t know, 50-100 of them would be awesome heavy metal, right?

Well, this year Austin got a fair amount of killer metal. Kicking things off on Wednesday, the 12th I had the pleasure of witnessing my first Municipal Waste concert. A day later I got off of work early and headed downtown with some friends and caught a showcase featuring Enslaved, Mixhell, Napalm Death, High On Fire, and the mighty Motorhead.

Lastly, I witnessed the “It’s Grim Up North” showcase featuring Sabaton, 1349 and Enslaved. I partied like a true champion, saw some really, really good performances and got some really solid interviews. Read on metal faithful and I shall guide you through these conversations in steel conducted in my homeland of Austin….Let’s start at the beginning….

Down – Live in Helsinki, Finland

April 6th, 2008
by Arto Lehtinen

DOWN : The House of Culture

The 21st of March 2007

Helsinki Finland

Down’s second visit to Finland has been a long time coming since their triumphant debut club gig that happened a few years ago in Tampere. That gig was sold quickly leaving several people outside the club without tickets. That gig has been described as one hell of the most memorable, remarkable, and intense club gigs witnessed for years. Therefore, having two gigs on the current touring schedule was more than obvious to meet the demand of the Down fans.
