Fatal Smile has recently been out supporting Doro and WASP in the U.S. I was lucky to have a moment with Blade before they headed off to England to support Bullet Boys, Britny Fox and Pretty Boy Floyd. Fatal Smile will also be the support act to Vince Neil when he heads out on the road this December in Europe.

All pics and live review by HannTu

Tonight’s not a night for doom and gloom, it’s a night for donning silly face paint and fake animal hair, raising your battle-axes (plastic) and your drinking horns (plastic), and rocking out with all the gusto you can manage. Yup, it’s Turisas and Dragonforce, two sold out nights at the London Astoria.

I think In Flames last toured the UK with the Unholy Alliance ’06. Since then they have released an album, A SENSE OF PURPOSE, which carried on in pretty much the same vein as their last three albums since REROUTE TO REMAIN. Although I firmly believe that their earlier stuff (THE JESTER RACE and WHORACLE especially) was better, the Astoria was still packed out with young In Flames fans.

E-FORCE – Vocalist and basist Eric Forrest (ex-Voivod)

October 4th, 2008
by Metal Rules

Eric Forrest – Vocalist and basist of E-Force

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

Live pictures by Eva Tristessa (Stormblast) 


E-Force-live1.JPG

Eric Forrest, whom many remember from his days spent fronting the legendary Voivod, and replacing Snake, has got his own band E-Force going on. E-Force relies more on a straight-forward thrash sound; the sound Eric has always loved, and has now a possibility to bring out his own musical visions (or perversions – or whatever, ha!) through it. E-force´s debut album, EVIL FORCES, saw the light of day in 2003 on the French Seasons of Mist label, receiving a good amount of positive response from all over the world.

As some of us already know, E-Force was started in Montreal, Canada in 2001 – and the band was forced to go through a drastic line-up change when Eric moved to Toulouse, France in 2003. A new line-up around E-Force, was however found soon, and the band became ready to record their follow-up album in the end of 2007.

MODIFIED POISON is E-Force´s new album, featuring 11 thrash songs with a side order of “shreddzilla” – plus an unreleased Voivod cover song "Victory", which Eric also considers as his own personal tribute to Denis ´Piggy´ D´Amour who passed away due to Colon Cancer on August 26th, 2005. 

Eric was kind enough to talk to Metal-Rules.com about his whole history in bands from a Maiden/Antrax -tinged Thunder Circus to Voivod to his current band E-Force – as well as revealing some new, yet interesting things about Voivod´s plans for the band´s last album, DVD plans – and just much more…

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.

by Anders Sandvall

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.

by Anders Sandvall

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.
