ORDER OF ENNEAD – Drummer Steve Asheim

September 28th, 2008
by Metal Rules

Order of Ennead - logo.jpg

Steve Asheim – Drummer of Order of Ennead and Deicide

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

Steve Asheim, the drummer of Deicide, is on his new exciting journey under Order of Ennead´s name – having also Kevin Quirion (Council Of The Fallen) on vocals and guitars, Scott Patrick (Resurrection) on bass and a young rookie named John Li taking care of lead guitars.

Order of Ennead´s blend of black- and death metal is somewhat extraordinary: Kevin´s snarling and vicious vocals and crushing guitar riffs, Steve´s thunderous and pounding drums of doom attacks and beautiful piano interludes, Scott well-hitting bass rolls and John´s truly phenomenal lead work – all these together, throw its listeners into an unforgettable and violent musical journey where one necessarily doesn´t want to return back from once paying a visit there. Order of Ennead certainly deliver their goods more than well on their self-titled debut that is supposed to be released by October 13th 2008 through Earache Records.

Steve Asheim reveals more accurate details to Metal-Rules.com about the band – how they got together, what kind of a process it was for them to get their debut album recorded, touring plans – and so forth. Now keep on reading – and praise the Lord Satan!

LIZZY BORDEN

September 27th, 2008
by Marko Syrjala

LIZZY BORDEN

Lizzy Borden carved his name to metal world in the 80’s with the horror looking visual stage show as well as look. All in all four full lengths came out of Lizzy’s horror dungeon during the 80’s, until he kind of vanished from the map without leaving many traces in the 90’s. Even though the 90’s was quite a silent period for Lizzy, he worked on his side project band Starwood. In 2000 the brand new album DEAL WITH THE DEVIL came out, but once again it took for about seven years to get the excellent APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH out. Lizzy and his horror masked crew arrived at Swedenrock. Therefore we had an excellent opportunity of questioning about his new album and the past and the present and the future. This interview was done at Swedenrock in the beginning of June, but it is timeless and extremely detailed.

Nile / Grave – The Underworld, London

The Underworld, Camden, London

All live pics and review by HannTu


What a superb billing! The (almost) perfect combination of bands to showcase the main strands of death metal: the technical American school, represented by Nile, vs the Swedish movement with Grave in its corner. Technicality and brutality on the one hand, dirty moshing and midtempo menace on the other. A match made in heaven, and this was reflected in the crowd; a sold-out Underworld for a death metal gig, on a Friday night when Paradise Lost/Anathema/My Dying Bride were bringing the first wave of British death/doom back to Britain at the Forum in Kentish Town. To many, the choice was simple, but there were equal amounts of people who agonised over which gig to attend. On the night however, the numbers swelling the Underworld reflected how many true death metal fans there are in London, and the people who turned up in the hopes of getting a ticket off the touts were largely left disappointed.

Ruediger Tonn, the drummer in Clusterhead was available for an interview. I took the opportunity to learn and ask more about the band that has, in my opinion, released a brilliant debut album called TIMES OF NO TRUST. The band comes from Germany so for all you Clusterhead fans out there, read and enjoy.

Swedish melodic thrashers Scaar are back on the attack with their third album NEXT LEVEL OF TORTURE. I thought it was time to do an update on what is going on in the Scaar camp. Alf Johansson and bass player Mats Vassfjord agreed to answer some questions. Scaar is a band that has a great future ahead of them.

Vile Vindiction – Guitarist Jim Nickles (original founding member of Malevolent Creation)

September 21st, 2008

Vile Vindiction - logo.jpg

VILE VINDICTION – guitarist Jim Nickles (original founding member of Malevolent Creation)

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

Jim - headspin.gif

Jim Nickles is one of the original founding members of Malevolent Creation. After parting ways with Malevolent Creation due to some personal reasons, he joined Hellwitch for a tour during 1990-91. Jim was struggling in his life due to having a drug problem, but however eventually learned his lessons by reaching many setbacks in his life by a continuous use of drugs.
Vile Vindiction is Jim´s new incarnation of a brutal and heavy blend of both thrash- and death metal which best could be described as a sort of early Malevolent-Creation-meets-Slayer type of musical mixture. The band will have their debut 5-song E.P. out soon – and while we are all waiting to get to hear it, please read what Jim had to tell about Vile Vindiction – as well as f.ex. his involvements with both Malevolent Creation (formerly Resthaven) and Hellwitch as well.

Fashion Bomb

Interview with Fashion Bomb frontman Val

Fashion Bomb is poised to explode on the Industrial Metal circuit with the re-release of their debut offering "Angels To Some, Devils To Others" courtesy of Full Effect Records. I recently had the opportunity to visit with Fashion Bomb vocalist/frontman/mastermind Val, a classically trained opera singer with a penchant for aggressive music and a disdain for organized religion, about signing with Full Effect, what it means to be a Drone and his unique take on the music industry at large. Expect a new full length album to follow the debut’s reissue in the immediate future, and definitely try and catch these guys live when they come to your town if Industrial Metal is your cup of tea!

TUSKA 2008

September 12th, 2008

TUSKA 2008

Review by the Finnish team of Metal-Rules.com

"No Pain No Gain" as Scorpions used to sing, but the last weekend of June in the central park of Helsinki was nothing but pure pain from the beginning to the end in a good way. The Tuska Open Air metal festival has been taken place ten years in a row. The first festival took place at the Tavastia club back in 1998. As the years passed by, the festival has grown bigger and carved out its prestigious and now legendary reputation all around the world.

Traditional metal had a minor role on the roster of Tuska 2008. Extreme metal, in different forms, attracted and had drawn many extreme metal hearts. As well, metalcore bands KillSwitch Engage landed at Tuska for the first time with a massive impact. The younger audience appeared to be delighted about that. Power metal had the strongest presence as it had a dominating role last year. But booking Slayer, Carcass, and Morbid Angel were extreme brilliant achievements. 

Even though the festival was sold out several months ago, the most  surprising thing from the Tuska organization was to let people of the age of 70+ go in for free! All in all a few hundred metal grandpa and grandma’s were witnessed headbanging for several bands!!!

As usual, the whole three piece Finnish Metal-Rules.Com squad attended Tuska again to sense a reek of putrefaction, feel raining blood and obtain the pleasure to kill. Enjoy!!
