TYRANTS BLOOD Brian Langley (ex-Infernäl Mäjesty)

Brian Langley (ex-Infernäl Mäjesty) of Tyrants Blood

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen 

Times change, and the present times are full of strange surprises indeed. Mentioning the Canadian thrash legends Infernäl Mäjesty, probably not many of us expected this to happen in the first place, but Brian Langley, who replaced longtime Infernäl Mäjesty vocalist Chris Bailey in 2005, is out of Infernäl Mäjesty. He joined a Vancouver-based black thrash/death metal band on very short notice as their new vocalist, being without a band no longer than a day after leaving the Infernäl camp.

Brian spoke in more detail to Metal-Rules.com about this transition from one of the most legendary Canadian thrash bands Infernäl Mäjesty to Tyrants Blood; this relatively new vicious force in the vast Canadian underground scene, which has undoubtedly started to gain momentum in their career. So, read and learn more about Tyrants Blood!

EVINCE – New Brutal Force In Thrash

November 13th, 2008
by Metal Rules

Evince- logo.jpg

Vocalist Mario Frasca

Guitarist Jani Hentila

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

 

This Myspace thing is actually pretty cool. You can form bands there just like that. Well, that´s almost exactly how this 1/4 American and 3/4 Finnish, brutal thrash act was kicked off – and more than a year later, Evince has recorded their yet-unreleased debut full-length album, titled ABANDON BELIEF.

Mario Frasca (ex-/SpeedKill/Hate, ex-Anger on Anger, ex-G/Z/R) and Jani Hentila (Fierce) were keen enough to shed more light on their new incarnation in brutal thrash, Evince, which undoubtedly is ready and armed to conquer its way through to every thrasher´s heart. ABANDON BELIEF, with its 11 songs on it, doesn´t leave any open questions whether they can crush hearts or not.

Evince doesn´t make any compromises either. First they ruthlessly kill you – and then they ask all the necessary questions from you. Got it?

However, this time both Mario and Jani just abided by answering to my polite and sensitive questions… Lucky me!

Universum – Michael Soininen

November 6th, 2008

Universum

Universum

Interviewed by Simon Lukic

Universum is an Australian melodic death metal band with huge potential. Their debut album LETO DESTINATUS has only just been released and if you haven’t yet read my review, it is a stunning album that Soilwork and Scar Symmetry fans should look into. Those who enjoy In flames will be floored as well, but these comparisons are only a guide because Universum is their own band and one listen to LETO DESTINATUS proves this. I got in touch with guitarist Michael Soininen and here is what we discussed.

Wolbers-Fear_Factory_-_SMALL2.jpg

I recently was presented with the opportunity to chat over the phone with Christian Olde Wolbers, who rose to fame as the bassist turned axe slinger for Fear Factory. Christian, ever the multi-faceted musician was kind enough to talk shop well over a half hour with me, covering everything from Fear Factory’s current hiatus, to his new band Arkaea, the COW Archetype Randall Half Stack, his studio work and much more. In fact he even recalls his early days in the thrash metal scene in his native Antwerp, Belgium and the time he spent playing for both Asphyxia and touring with Cyclone. Special thanks to Andy Caffaro at Forty Three PR for coordinating this special interview.

by Anders Sandvall

Hot Rod from Gemini Five is a very busy bass player but he took the time to make this interview possible. The band has recently released their stunning third album titled SEX DRUGS ANARCHY. I had to talk to one of the responsible people behind one of the years best sleaze discs. Gemini Five has struggled for many years and hopefully SEX DRUGS ANARCHY will be their big break through.

Dan Lilker – Nuclear Assault / Brutal Truth

October 23rd, 2008
by Arto Lehtinen

poster.JPG

It would be more than unexpected if some serious metalhead asked “who is Dan Lilker”, cos the man has been involved in the metal scene and in the catacombs of underground metal for several decades. Above all, Nuclear Assault are still remembered as pioneers of the NY thrash metal scene, with several killer albums from the 80’s. Dan has also carved a reputation as the long time bass player and founder of the extreme grind core act Brutal Truth which terrorized the underground extreme metal genre in the 90’s until they went on a long hiatus. After being on a hold for years Brutal Truth has returned to bring their extreme music to extreme people again. The band visited Helsinki some time ago and we got the great opportunity to chat with Dan about his various bands, but above all about Brutal Truth, Nuclear Assault and even going back to the very early days of Anthrax.
