Rhapsody – Luca Turilli

August 28th, 2005

Rhapsody’s Luca Turilli
Interviewed by EvilG in August 2000

Rhapsody are one of the newer bands that have come along in the last couple of years that have really impressed me. From their lyrics that tell the saga of the Emerald Sword to their unique blend of power/speed metal with classical music this band is not for the casual listener. Band pillar, Luca Turilli also fronts his own solo band which is as impressive as his full-time band. I waited for the opportunity to interview Luca for months. For a while he was on the road with Rhapsody, playing on the same bill as Stratovarius and Sonata Artcia. In the final stages of recording the new Rhapsody CD Dawn of Victory, Luca took the time out of his schedule to call me just days before Rhapsody were to take to the stage at this year’s Wacken Open Air festival.

Cannibal Corpse – George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher

August 28th, 2005
by EvilG

George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher of Cannibal Corpse

Interviewed at The Reverb in Toronto,
August 10th 2000 by Waspman.

Interviewing a band is never an easy experience, let alone when the interviewee is one of the most brutal voices in metal, George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher. You’d think that the tortured voice of Cannibal Corpse would be an imposing presence, but as he proved during the course of the interview, Corpsegrinder is just a metal fan himself, who doesn’t see much of a gap between himself and his fans. Speaking to Corpsegrinder shortly before Cannibal Corpse’s killer set in Toronto, I had the chance to chat with him about numerous subjects, including the forthcoming live album, fantasy tours, and Six Feet Under.

Metal-Rules.com interview with Dan Zimmermann: Drummer for Gamma Ray & Freedom Call

Interviewed by EvilG,
July 24 2000

One of my personal favorites and one of the most respected power metal bands is Gamma Ray. The thunder behind Gamma Ray is the great drummer Daniel Zimmermann who joined Gamma Ray prior to the release of their 1997 album Somewhere Out In Space. Since that time, Dan has also been a part of Iron Savior and now the glorious Freedom Call. Thanks to the awesome people at Noise Records, I was given the chance to speak with Dan about his pre-Gamma Ray bands, what Gamma Ray is currently doing and information on his other band Freedom Call.

Skid Row – Dave “Snake” Sabo

Skid Row – A Return To The Grind
Interviewed By Keith McDonald in July 2000

Skid Row literally exploded onto the scene when they went from the local clubs right into a major arena tour with Bon Jovi. With the help of the hits 18 and Life, I Remember You and the anthem Youth Gone Wild, Skid Row, made up of bassist Rachel Bolan, guitarists Dave “Snake” Sabo and Scotti Hill, drummer Rob Affuso and singer Sebastian “Bas” Bach, ruled the MTV airwaves and went on to sell more than 12 million albums worldwide. After internal problems within caused the band to part ways, the new millennium has seen Skid Row reunite for the KISS Farewell Tour. But they have added new parts to the puzzle including new vocalist Johnny Solinger and drummer Charlie Mills. I had the chance to speak to Dave who filled me in the tour and new vibe they now have.

Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society

August 28th, 2005
by EvilG

Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society:
Ass Beatings and Beer Drinking 

Interviewed in June 2000 by EvilG

When I think of Zakk Wylde, I think of blaring ripping solos, ultra-thick rhythms ripe with cool artificial harmonics and of course the image buried in my mind of the head-banging maniac in Ozzy Osbourne’s “Miracle Man” video. Zakk is still playing metal and still searing his fretboard on his new solo CD Stronger Than Death for his band Black Label Society. You will find a mixture of metal styles reminiscent of his work with Ozzy and his Sabbath influences coupled with a drop of Pantera and some groove / southern rock orientated music. I was given the chance to talk with Zakk about the new Black Label CD, metal, beer, Ozzy and of course guitar!

Savatage – Jon Oliva

August 28th, 2005
by EvilG

Savatage – Tribute To A Fallen Brother

Intervieweded in May 2000 by Keith McDonald

Savatage was formed by Jon and Criss Oliva in 1981. They quickly became one of the premier metal outfits to come from a decade known for creating legendary hard rock and heavy metal bands. They released City Beneath The Surface in 1983 and have continuously released albums that some may call masterpieces. They have sold millions of albums worldwide and gathered a loyal following of fans around the world. But their success did not come without heartache. Lead guitarist Criss Oliva will killed in a car crash leaving the band without a huge piece of the puzzle. Instead of calling it quits they felt the best way to honor Criss would be by continuing the music. They have just released Ghost In The Ruins (A Tribute to Criss Oliva), a collection of live recordings to honor his memory. I had the chance to speak with Jon Oliva who let me in on the new release.
