INTERVIEW WITH UDO DIRKSCHNEIDER

Udo Dirkscheider’s band U.D.O. recently released a brand new studio album “Mission X” which, as the name says, is their tenth studio album to date. Last summer he also did a kind of re -union tour with his old bandmates Accept and together they did a series of succesfull gigs along with headlining huge festivals like Wacken, Swedenrock, Gods Of Metal and Tuska. While Udo is waiting a new U.D.O. tour to start in January he’s working on several other projects like the one he already did with Russian pop band Factor 2 and now another one with Finnish monster band Lordi. I met Udo when he flew to Finland in early November to do vocals for the Lordi album and we talked about all these things. At the end of our discussion the main monster Lordi himself showed up and we talked some more about their collaboration as well as some other interesting topics …

Hypocrisy / Exodus : The 24th Of November, Helsinki Finland

December 5th, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

HYPOCRISY & EXODUS
(Keep Of Kalessin)
November 24, 2005
Nosturi, Helsinki, Finland

Review and pics by Arto Lehtinen

The past year has been an incredible metal year here in Finland as several classic well known bands have visited doing two, or even three, gigs. Especially the old school thrash metal bands have gained an entire new fan base as Slayer, Testament, Destruction and now Exodus have all thrashed in front of huge and fanatical crowds.  Exodus finally made it to Finland last year, giving their first lesson of violence in a huge outdoor rock festival. Hypocrisy has been a more constant visitor in Finland and gathered a solid but small following. Putting three bands on the same touring package consisting of three separate metal genres was definitely a brilliant way to combine these different metal styles and have an almost sold out club in the middle of the week.

RAVAGE – Vocalist Al ‘Ravage’

RAVAGE: Interview with Vocalist Al ‘Ravage’

Interviewed by: Lord of the Wasteland, EvilG, Metal George, & Celtic Bob
Intro text by Lord of the Wasteland

While the rest of the metal dudes their age are busy applying eyeliner or writing breakdowns, Massachusetts’ Ravage are not only writing REAL metal but they are doing it well, too! Brothers Al “Ravage” Firicano (vocals) and Eli Firicano (guitar/keyboards) planted the seeds for Ravage in 1995 as a retaliation against the shoe-gazing flannel-mongers of the grunge era and after playing musical chairs (quite literally, as Al started out on drums and Eli on bass) and trudging through the eastern seaboard underground, the band in its current incarnation finally came to fruition in 2001. The CURSE OF HEAVEN E.P. (raved about in an October 2003 review by our esteemed former colleague, JP) was released in 2003 and generated enough buzz to have several labels clamoring to sign the young band. Eventually choosing the small German indie, Karthago Records, Ravage self-financed the recording of SPECTRAL RIDER, which, in itself, saw personnel changes within the band, delivering eleven new tracks and a remix of the title track from the CURSE OF HEAVEN E.P..

HEADBANGERS OPEN AIR 2005

HEADBANGERS OPEN AIR 2005
Written by Thrash Attack & BlackGoat
Review and Photos by Thrash Attack & BlackGoat

Again the worlds biggest garden party for Metal was at hand! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: this is one of the greatest Metal events EVER! And in case you are wondering: the other is Keep It True. It had been a dry spell for concerts, so I was brimming with excitement when it finally came time to head towards the Hamburg area. After recalling how exhausted we both were last year, having made the approximately 7 hour drive up there and THEN going to the warm-up show, this year we opted to leave a day early to rest up from the tedious road trip. This proved to be a great idea and will be repeated when we go to next years H:O:A. When we arrived and packed away our stuff, we headed into Itzehoe to visit Hellion Records and make our first (but not last) CD haul of the weekend. It was a successful trip as both of us found some cool stuff, which was later blasted in our hotel room (quite possibly to the dismay of other guests) to get into the mood for the next day’s warm-up.

Watch Them Die – Vocalist Pat Vigil

November 22nd, 2005
by Lord of the Wasteland

Interview With Vocalist Pat Vigil

Interview By Lord of The Wasteland

All photos courtesy of Century Media Records and Watch Them Die


Watch Them Die’s new CD, BASTARD SON, hit me like a ton of bricks upon first listen.  Not only is the Oakland-based band pulverizing in its intensity and outright brutality, but the thrash-influenced riffs of Greg Valencia and ferocious vocals of Pat Vigil tore me a new one.  With every other new CD released these days seeming to be a metalcore hackfest, it was refreshing to hear an American band flip off the norm and go right for the jugular.

Pat Vigil took the time to answer a few questions about the new album, their just-completed tour with Exodus and 3 Inches of Blood, being on the road with GWAR and how the combination of Black Metal, punk, hardcore and Bay Area thrash bands shaped the ass-kicking sound of Watch Them Die…

Candlemass / Destruction : The 14th of November 2005 Helsinki Finland

November 19th, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

CANDLEMASS / DESTRUCTION
(DeathChain and After All)
The 14th Of November 2005
Nosturi, Helsinki
Finland

Pics and review by Arto Lehtinen

What a real old school metal line up indeed, featuring the legends of two separate metal genres namely Destruction and Candlemass. Frankly it was utterly amazing to have that kind of line up booked here in Finland even for two gigs. But once again some unexpected problems came out of the blue due to the gods of weather.

Bobnoxious!
Interview with Bob J. Reid
By Celtic Bob

Bobnoxious is the brainchild of Bob J. Reid (Razor, S.F.H.). Hailing out of London Ontario this 4 piece unit is about to take the music industry by storm with their energetic live shows and killer debut. I had a chance to ask band founder Bob a few questions recently about the future of Bobnoxious as well as his previous bands.

RUSSELL ALLEN

 

Here is a short interview that I’ve done with Russell Allen. He, together with Jorn Lande, has recently released the album THE BATTLE on Frontiers Records and I was interested in what two singers of such an excellent caliber had to offer the listener. So here’s what Russell had to say about the album and he was also kind enough to reveal what he’s up to in the near future.

 

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

Big thanks to Stefan at Atenzia for arranging the interview.

Also great thanks to Frontiers for lending pictures to me.
