 Fatal Smile
Neo Natural Freaks Tour
The Rock, Copenhagen
Denmark, 22/6 – 2006

Review & pictures by Anders Sandvall 

Even though the World Cup of Soccer seemed to hold Scandinavia in a steady grip it was time for me to take the train over to Copenhagen to witness one of the new up and coming bands from Sweden.This Swedish act plays heavy 80’s hard rock mixed with dirty glam/sleaze party rock’n’roll and is called Fatal Smile. I’d really looked forward to seeing the guys live because their latest album NEO NATURAL FREAKS literally blew my head off.

Now the time has come to interview the mastermind and leader of the band Loch Vostok, Teddy Möller. The band comes from Uppsala, Sweden. Loch Vostok have been around a few years but have never been interviewed in Metal-Rules.com so I thought it was about time to get in touch with Teddy and talk about Loch Vostok and their new album.

Joacim Carlsson – Guitarist for Face Down
Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall
Promo Pics provided by Black Lodge

Face Down is a cult thrash band that recently re-united and released the ass-kicking new album THE WILL TO POWER. My mission was to get in touch with Joacim Hedestedt and ask him some questions about the bands past history, the album and so on but for some reasons he couldn’t do an interview so instead I had the luck to talk with Joacim Carlsson that plays guitar.

Swedenrock 2006

August 5th, 2006

SWEDENROCK

The 8th – 10th of June 2006

Solvesborg Sweden

by Arto Lehtinen and Marko  Syrjala

Wow! This is the sixth time that the Finnish Metal-Rules squad makes an invasion to the mighty Swedenrock festival. Over 60 bands descended on the the southern area of Sweden for a festival that turned out to be nothing but an utter blast! The bill of Swedenrock festival 2006 covers a wide range of metal styles and even classic rock stuff (Journey and Molly Hatchet). Therefore, there was at least something for everyone who attended the festival. As usual, the whole festival was once again sold out when around 20,000 people arrived at the area every day. The Swedenrock festival has always had tremendous luck with the weather as once again the gods of weather blessed this rocking metallic heaven on the earth with an extreme hot and sunny weekend that burned red the skin of several festival goers.

As stated in the first sentence, this is the sixth time that the Swedenrock festival has been featured in the site of Metal-Rules.com, so it is quite logical for us to give a real in-depth article of several bands performing at Swedenrock. Enjoy !!!

Monstrosity – Vocalist Brian Werner

July 30th, 2006

Monstrosity – Vocalist Brian Werner
Interviewed by Robert

As one of the longest running forerunner’s for the Florida Death Metal throne, Monstrosity has been a force to reckon with since 1990. From the classic IMPERIAL DOOM to the most recent output, a split cd also featuring death metal giants Incantation as well as Rottrevore and Repulsion for Relapse Records, Monstrosity has maintained a loyal worldwide fanbase, toured the globe almost constantly and endured their share of line up changes. Having seen the band in concert over five times during various stages of their career, I was as anxious as any to hear what the band had been up to these last few years.

Upon attending the NAMM Summer Session conference (a music industry trade show that just so happened to take place in my hometown of Austin, Texas) I had the chance to meet many interesting musicians. A good number of them were death metal related. There was Derek Roddy of Hate Eternal fame, David Vincent of Morbid Angel, and Tim Yeung from Vital Remains hosting the World’s Fastest Drummer competition. Taking a break to step outside and quench my desire for an afternoon smoke, I happened upon one Brian Werner who it just so happens is Monstrosity’s new lead singer….in addition to fronting the underground death/black metal outfit Infernaeon.

I got a chance to speak at length with Brian about all things Monstrosity / Infernaeon related. Here is what he had to say…

Ted Nugent: Live in Finland 2006

July 27th, 2006
by Marko Syrjala

TED NUGENT

11.06 2006 House of Culture

Helsinki, FINLAND

Ted Nugent’s long career as a musician started in the late sixties with Amboy Dukes but the big success did not find him before he started his solo career in the mid 70’s. Since then Ted Nugent has done several world tours and sold millions of records but before today, he’s never been in Finland. Although it’s true that in the past few years Ted Nugent has been in the headlines more for his statements and hunting interest than musical deeds. Despite that and the fact that Ted has never been a real big name in Finland and he has never sold too many records either it was more than delightful to discover that House of Culture was completely sold out tonight.

Amorphis – Keyboardist Santeri Kallio

July 26th, 2006

Amorphis – Keyboardist Santeri Kallio
Interviewed by EvilG
Questions by EvilG & Arto Lehtinen
Transcription by Duke / Live Amorphis Pics by Arto Lehtinen

Santeri KallioAmorphis line-up 2006:
Tomi Joutsen – vocals
Esa Holopainen – guitar
Niclas Etelävuori – bass
Santeri Kallio – keyboards
Jan Rechberger – drums

Amorphis has recently been rejuvenated with the addition of new vocalist Tomi Joutsen and their latest album ECLIPSE is their best offering since ELEGY (1996). The dueling clean/death styled vocals are back as are more driving songs. Everything that was wrong about their previous lackluster release (2003′s FAR FROM THE SUN) is easily wiped away by the vitality of ECLIPSE. Recently, I was given the opportunity to interview Amorphis keyboardist Santeri Kallio and we spoke about his background, his time with Amorphis before becoming an actual member, Finnish music, and about the new Amorphis album.

Sauna Open Air Metal Festival 2006

July 26th, 2006
by Luxi Lahtinen

Sauna Open Air Metal Festival, Tampere, Finland, 8th-10th of June 2006

 

Intro/outro by Luxi “come-out-and-play” Lahtinen

Mindless commentary, bullshitting, spitting, farting, headaches, mumbling, cursing, getting wasted, demons on shoulders, handclapping,  sophisticated way of using swear words, photographing, killing of the giants / slaughtering of the gayest, documenting of all kinds, etc. by Luxi “L.O.V.E. Machine”  Lahtinen & Niko “burn-in-Hell”  Karppinen

 

“Satan´s calling… Ave Luciferus… Ave Satanas! Heavy Metal is dangerous for your health. It reaps your soul and destroys your mind”.

If that´s so, we had arrived to the right place. Sauna Open Air Metal Festival opened its doors for the third time in its entire history, this time having booked some very interesting yet big names for the bill – Iggy & The Stooges, Lordi and Twisted Sister being probably those three bands that made most of the people travel to the festival, yet not underestimating all the other bands (like W.A.S.P., Finntroll, Stam1na – and so on…) that participated in this metallic event in one of the Finland´s biggests cities, Tampere.

This year´s bill was basically shared for three musical categories: Thursday was for a more rock-orientated bands (Blake, The Black League, Iggy & The Stooges, etc.), Friday for more extreme sounding bands (Finntroll, Diablo, Cradle of Filth, etc.) and Saturday, which was also sold-out due to bands like Lordi and Twisted Sister, we were treated to bands that have based their sounds on more of a tradiotional Heavy Metal sound, so basically everyone found some bands for his/her likings.

       
Also two (well-) aged (but not bald), dumb (but not stupid) and close-minded (but not THAT narrow-minded) reporters from the largely respected Canadian Metal-Rules.com webmagazine intruded through the gates of the festival just like last year, and the following diary was put together by them (Read the last year´s S.O.A.M. -festival diary from here), out of the (well-selected) bands at the Sauna Open Air Metal Festival 2006. Read on…
