What happened to Sadistic Intent, some of you may wonder silently in your minds. The band was working with their THE SECOND COMING OF DARKNESS debut full-lenght album in 2002, but when things really start to go badly wrong, they do – and nothing can stop them going wrong. That was Sadistic Intent´s unfortunate faith with their 1st attempts to get the album recorded back in the day; everything ended up for a real mess.

However, as long as there´s some hope left, almost anything can be expected, even the second coming of Sadistic Intent. And talking about these so-called ´2nd comings´, Possessed´s sort of ´second coming´ has been going on for a while already. Namely the band members of Sadistic Intent have been currently been doing one-off shows with Jeff Benjamin Becerra, playing classic Possessed songs in Europe, in the States, and in Mexico with a huge enthusiasm. It all started with a special reunion show of Possessed that took place at Wacken festival in August 2007. At the same time, Sadistic Intent played one-off gig in Hamburg, Germany - actually the day after the Wacken weekend, together with the Dutch old school Death Metal masters Pentacle.

Since Possessed´s special Wacken performance and Sadistic Intent´s show at Ballroom in Hamburg last year, lots of things have happened. Read all about these things – amongst other very interesting plans both Sadistic Intent and Possessed have in their sleeves about a number of things. Both Jeff Becerra of Possessed and  Rick Cortez of Sadistic Intent, opened slightly their private boxes of secrets for Metal-Rules.com… ENJOY!  ;o)

PAUL BOSTAPH of Exodus, ex-Slayer

January 25th, 2007
by Marko Syrjala

PAUL BOSTAPH

Paul Bostaph is a true professional and one of the best drummers on today’s metal music scene. Paul’s career started in the late eighties as a member of U.S thrashers Forbidden and over the years he has played with such bands as Testament, Systematic and Slayer for which he recorded four albums between 1993- 2003. In 2005 Paul joined legendary Bay Area band Exodus and later in the same year he made his recording debut with the band on SHOVEL HEADED KILL MACHINE. Exodus has now been on tour for over a year and last December the band returned to Helsinki. I met Paul on their tour bus prior to their show at Club Tavastia and here are the results of our interesting discussion.

WHITESNAKE -David Coverdale & Doug Aldrich

by Marko Syrjala

DAVID COVERDALE & DOUG ALDRICH

David & Doug came over to Europe on last November to do a promotional tour supporting band’s recently released "Live.. In The Shadow Of The Blues" live album. What made this promo tour extremely cool was the fact that in addition of doing tons of interviews Doug and David spoiled their fans with playing selected acoustic gigs and Swedenrock Rock kick off party in Stockholm was luckily one of those places. There are lot’s of activity in Whitesnake camp and which is the most important thing is the news that band is currently working on brand new studio album, bands first in ten years, which should be released on next summer.

Yngwie Malmsteen

January 18th, 2007
by Marko Syrjala

YNGWIE MALMSTEEN

Legendary Swedish guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen doesn’t need much of an introducion here. He is arguably the most technically accomplished hard rock guitarist to emerge during the ’80s and he has been an important influence and source of inspiration for many of today’s top players and bands. So far Yngwie has released thirteen studio albums and now he has been on tour almost 16 months supporting his latest release "Unleash the Fury".  Last December Yngwie and his band did a brief tour of Finland, which was the very last leg of this endless spectacle. The day before the Helsinki show he kindly agreed to do this press conference for the Finnish press. In contrast to his difficult personal reputation we were treated to  this long, fun and hilarious conversation. Here are the results, ENJOY !!!

Francis Buchholz ex-Scorpions

January 14th, 2007
by Marko Syrjala

FRANCIS BUCHHOLZ

Francis Buchholz played with the Scorpions for almost twenty years, appearing on the "Fly to the Rainbow" (1974), "In Trance" (1975), "Virgin Killer" (1976), "Taken by Force" (1977), "Tokyo Tapes" (1978), "Lovedrive" (1979), "Animal Magnetism" (1980), "Blackout" (1982), "Love at First Sting (1984), "World Wide Live" (1985), "Savage Amusement" (1988) and "Crazy World" (1990) albums. By the early ’90s Francis felt it was time to take a step away from the constant touring and the music business as a whole. Now he has finally returned to the stage together with his old friend and fellow ex-Scorpions member Uli Jon Roth. We managed to sit down with Francis as he, among other things, recounted the confusing happenings surrounding the very successful "Love at First Sting" (1984) album as well as his activies for the past fifteen years away from the public eye and much more.

Vader, NightRage, BloodThorn – Helsinki, Finland November 2006

January 8th, 2007
by Arto Lehtinen

Vader
BloodThorn & Nightrage
The 24th of November 2006
NightLife Rock, Helsinki, Finland

The coverage of obscure underground death metal gigs continues in Metal-Rules.com. Previous reviews have covered gigs of both Grave and Dismember when these bands played in obscure places in front of small, but enthusiastic audiences on their small tour thru Finland.

Vader had toured in Finland a couple of years ago gaining a solid and strong reputation as being a tight and merciless live act on stage. The band had guaranteed to deliver a lesson in the purest death metal mayhem for several extreme metal maniacs on their last tour. Therefore Vader’s return to the soil of Finland was definitely welcomed.

Andy LaRocque & Mike Wead of KING DIAMOND

December 31st, 2006
by Marko Syrjala

Many things have happened in the King Diamond camp since their last visit to Finland. The band has released two studio albums ABIGAIL II and THE PUPPET MASTER and and also a live album called "Deadly Lullabies" which came out in 2004. Although it’s already been three years since the release of "Puppet Master" King Diamond hasn’t been able to do any touring outside U.S for a while and actually this tour was his first in Europe in five years. So it was about time to get an update on what’s going on in the world of King Diamond. I managed to reach bands guitarists Andy LaRocque and Mike Wead before the band’s first sold out night in Helsinki and they were nice enough to have this brief conversation.. Hope you like it!
