Martone is one of Canada’s most respected guitarists. His latest album CLEAN has recently been released so I decided to take a closer look at this new shredder. As you can see it became a long interview and I hope you are gonna have as much fun reading it as I had interviewing him.

BENEDICTION – Frank Healy

December 23rd, 2008
by Arto Lehtinen

504_logo.jpg

The long time British death metal squad Benediction have travelled a long road since the early days of the catacombs of the underground and enjoyed success in the heyday of death metal in the early 90’s. Surviving through some rough years and member changes, Benediction have been able to stay loyal to the roots of what Benediction is known for. The latest output KILLING MUSIC once again presents the true classic Benediction style with skullbreaking death metal riffs. It was about time to have an interview with bassist Frank Healy telling more about the new album and touring life as well.

Destruction and supports : Tavastia, Helsinki, Finland 2008

DESTRUCTION

DEBAUCHERY  & SCARED TO DEATH

Tavastia Helsinki Finland 

04.12.2008


The legendary German thrash metal patrol Destruction have been a more or less regular visitor up in the northernmost territories of Finland. Therefore, it could have been expected the trio would have expanded and gained the fanatical and loyal mad butcher fanbase. But the cold reality literally hit the face in the most brutal way on thursday when the german thrash butchers stroke back on their own headlining tour with a couple of the countrymates.

Damnation Festival 2008 – Leeds University, UK

DAMNATION FESTIVAL

22nd November 2008

Leeds University, UK

All live pics and review by HannTu


The Damnation Festival has a proud history of serving up quality metal to metalheads in the British Isles for quite a few years now. It has come from humble beginnings to currently span three indoor stages, and attracting big names in metal as well as breaking newer independent bands is its aim. Mille Petrozza of Kreator called it right, he said that “this isn’t a festival for scenes and trends”. Indeed, and with this year’s varied line-up, ranging from Carcass to My Dying Bride to Berserker to Sigh, there was something in it for everyone.

Cattle Decapitation Vocalist Travis Ryan

"Goddamn humans and their stupid ideas

Moronic morality for the weak and full of hope

We’re supposed to think we’re created to serve – when

domination is in our nature?

What kind of god is this?
"

- from the Cattle Decapitation song "Unintelligent Design"

I have seen this band live in Mexico City at Chas Metal Attack. On that night we also saw Monstrosity, Marduk and Setherial. We are used to expecting the best from the bands that we already know like Monstrosity, but this Death/Grindcore band really impacted on the face of many… since that day these following questions came to me… keep reading!!!

Flaming Tusk

I spoke via email with the members of Flaming Tusk, a metal band from Astoria, New York on their new EP, ABIGAIL, available to download on their myspace site. I had reviewed ABIGAIL and found it a refreshing listen, and when talking to the members of the band, it is clear that they do love their metal and are not short on confidence in the potential of Flaming Tusk. Read on for a quirky and articulate take on themselves and metal in general…

MASTER – Paul Speckmann

December 15th, 2008
by Metal Rules

Master - logo2.jpg

Paul Speckmann – The mastermind behind Death Strike, Master, Abomination, etc.

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen


Paul Speckmann is one of those incarnations of everything heavy, brutal and metal that many have considered as a true inspirations and influence when starting their own band. Paul is mainly known for his bands Death Strike, Abomination and especially Master. He has received a lot of credit from musicians around the globe,from such bands as Terrorizer, Napalm Death, Obituary, Entombed, etc., for being a huge influence for all these bands back in the day. His impact on the whole death metal scene is unquestionable.

Having recorded 9 studio albums with Master in his career so far, the band´s latest album, SLAVES TO SOCIETY, contains 11 songs of classic Master material. Paul´s well distinctive, death grunts are one of the trademarks of Master´s sound – so is the fast, uncompromising, heavy and to-the-point approach style, which is actually easy to love. It even could sincerely be said that Master is like a rolling stone that just never becomes covered with moss. It has only gotten better over the years, which SLAVES TO SOCIETY so clearly proves for being a real nutt-kicking effort from them.

In talking with one of the true icons of the death metal, Paul was very keen on telling us about his latest ´baby´ SLAVES TO SOCIETY, his move from his birthplace Chicago, Illinois to his current home country the Czech Republic, problems about finding their latest album in music stores from Czech Republic – as well as naturally anything related to his past bands from War Cry to now Chech-based Master, that is also activated touring-wise.


Now let´s call our favorite beast in, and let him continue telling the story…

Madball with Worth The Pain and Ratface

The 20th of November, 2008

Nosturi, Helsinki

Review & Pictures by Arto Lehtinen

Obviously at least a few true metal heads will get freaked out again when seeing a gig review of a hardcore gig in the site of Metal-Rules.com. Several bands from both genres have drawn influences from both genres into sounds of their own and have created and unleashed groundbreaking metal and hardcore classics since the 80’s. Madball definitely appeals to both metal and hardcore genres and that could be testified as a plenty of metal heads arrived to see and feel the pure chaos and mayhem in the pit.
