 Review and photos by  Brat

with special comments from Aussie Metalchild (bassist of LORD)

"I love you Anette!" rang out from a young female fan in the first few rows of Sydney’s Nightwish show.

"I love you too," came the wide-smiled and warm reply from Nightwish’s new singer, Anette Olzon, as she made the stage her own and left us with no doubt her place was with this band.

LEGION OF THE DAMNED – Vocalist Maurice Swinkels

 LEGION OF THE DAMNED – Vocalist Maurice Swinkels

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

Questions by Luxi L. & Arto L.

Live pictures by Luxi Lahtinen

Transcription by David Groves

 Legion of the Damned - Promo1.jpg

The relentless Dutch thrashers, Legion of the Damned, invaded to Finland in the beginning of February 2008, doing a 4-show mini-tour under the "Suomi Invasion 2008" – and showing no mercy towards their crazy and drunken Finnish fans when the band hit the stages in 4 different cities.

Legion of the Damned´s last show out of these 4 shows, was booked to a relatively small, but very cozy-looking metal bar named Nightlife Rock in Helsinki where the band had the opportunity to play with 3 Finnish thrash troops: Hateform, Axegressor and The Scourger (whom all – by the way – did a great job, opening up for L.o.t.D.).

Maurice Swinkels, who rips his lungs out in Legion of the Damned, was in a cheerful and talkative mood, and was kind enough to reveal the band´s both current – as well as future plans for Metal-Rules.com, plus was kinda excited to tell a couple of interesting things about his past bands from Bestial Summoning to Occult, as well.

Gamma Ray

Gamma Ray’s Kai Hansen

Interviewed by EvilG

Transcription by Alxs / Live Pics By Arto Lehtinen & Hanntu

Kai Hansen is easily one of the best frontmen in heavy metal today. I recently caught up with my idol (ha) to talk about the band’s latest masterpiece LAND OF THE FTEE II and other things going on in the land of Gamma Ray. Since our conversation it was announced that Gamma Ray and Helloween would be making a stop at this year’s ProgPower USA festival. Plans for this to be more than a one city stop haven’t been announced yet but even when I spoke to him he said they were working on it…so lets hope it works out! Anyway, enough from me, onto the interview…… Prepare for glory!

Finnish Metal Expo 2008

FINNISH METAL EXPO

CABLE FACTORY: Helsinki, Finland

15th – 16th 2008

Article and Pics by Arto Lehtinen

The Finnish Metal Expo was arranged for the fourth time. The previous events have been an utter success with sold out nights and awesome band line-ups. The expo is held every year,  where several more or less important and not so important musicians and above all metal leaders usually gather to hang out and of course check out the latest on the metal map. Due to overwhelming interest and success, the organization of the Expo has expanded the expo capacity by arranging more space for different kinds of studio and other guitar and band clinics. Two notable band clinics were held by Children of Bodom and Stratovarius members. Of course, record labels, several magazines, and festival representatives werein attendance at the event and all in all everything related to a wide range of metal and hard rock was at the expo. The metal expo wouldn’t be any real expo event without live music and above all metal bands playing there. During these two days plenty of known as well as unknown bands got the great opportunity to play in front of thousands. As a matter of fact, 5000 metal maniacs visited the event during the weekend!

THE ORDHER – Fabiano Penna

February 20th, 2008
by Arto Lehtinen

79849_logo.jpg

The Ordher could be classied as new, but old band hailing from Brazil. The band’s line-up consists of the recognizable Brazilian extreme metal veterans from other, now defunct, bands such as Rebaellium and Nephasth. The Ordher basically follows the paved path of the extreme death metal with the utter brutal vocals and lethal guitarworks by Fabiano Penna. The three piece’s debuted on the WEAPONIZE album which recently came out by Unique Leader Records. The guitarist Fabiano Penna unveils more about the debut album and why his previous band ceased to exist.

Borknagar – Øystein G. Brun

Borknagar – Øystein G. Brun

band.jpg

Written by Andreas Aubert

 

The Norwegian band Borknagar can easily be labelled Avantgarde. Whether speaking of the music, the lyrics or the artwork, it can be said that it is not exactly the usual cup of tea. Through it all shines a philosophical approach to life, an existential wonder. I caught up with guitarist and main songwriter/lyricist Øystein G. Brun via email, to discuss philosophy, spirituality, lyrics and the creative process. He was more than willing to explain his approach to life as a travel, and to share about its many facets.

Alpha Galates is a new-old band from Toronto, Ont. They were formally known as The Hollow but after some additions and changes they became Alpha Galates.
