Assassin Interview with Michael Hoffman

April 1st, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

In the 80?s when thrash ruled the world bands popped up all around. Especially in Europe where German got a dominating role what comes to having the outstanding thrash metal scene. Sodom, Kreator and Destruction have already become and gained the legend status in eyes of every extreme metal fan. But besides the unholy triangle of the thrash names, the German thrash metal scene had a lot of great bands to offer which remained more on the ug and cult status level and released a couple of albums and vanished around the change of the decade. Assassin used to be one of those bands having released two albums and was forced to withdraw until a couple of years ago Assassin got back  together and did a real metal thrashing mad set at Wacken.  Assassin?s guitarist Michael Hoffman (who was on Sodom?s Better Off Dead) quickly answered my questions?

Cromonic

Ex-FRETERNIA members return in new band

An interview with lead guitarist Patrik von Porat
and vocalist Pasi Humppi

Interviewed by EvilG

For FRETERNIA fans waiting to hear news about what some of the band members are now doing there is good news. That good news comes in the form of the new band CROMONIC. This Swedish band consits of: Patrik von Porat – Lead guitars, Tomas W?ppling – Rhythm guitars, Bo Pettersson – Bass, Pasi Humppi – Vocals, and Ronny Milianowicz – drums. All except for Ronny (current drummer for Dionysus) were at one time or another in Freternia. However, don’t let this fool you, this new band is not planning on being Freternia part 2, but plans to stand on their own with their own style and sound. I spoke with both Patrick and Pasi recently about their new band, Freternia, other bands they are involved in, etc. Enjoy!

Blaze Bayley

BLAZE BAYLEY

Interview and pictures by Marko Syrjala

Thanks to Duke for the Transcription

Blaze Bayley is probably best known for the wrong reasons because most people in the music world remember him only because of his brief period as the lead singer for Iron Maiden. However he has done a lot more during his long lasting career. Before Maiden he did several albums with Wolfsbane and after Iron Maiden he formed a new band called Blaze which last summer released their third studio album called "Blood and Belief". I was fortunate enough to meet Blaze before his performance at Wacken in 2004 and then we talked about Blaze, Wolfsbane and of course a little about Iron Maiden too? Here are the results of that nice conversation? enjoy!

The Finnish Speed – and Thrash Metal Special – Part 2

March 21st, 2005
by Luxi Lahtinen

?Thrash Metal Knows No Boundaries…?
The Finnish Speed / Thrash Metal special
(Pt 2.)

 

 

Featuring interviews with Bloodride, Burning Empire, HateFrame, Murdread, Nailgunner, Py?veli, Sightless, Solitaire, The Scourger and Witheria

 

All interviews by Luxi Lahtinen

Bloodride live pictures by Luxi Lahtinen

Last year, in January 2004 to be exact, I got an idea to introduce a bunch of up?n?coming Finnish Speed – and Thrash Metal bands to a wider audience via Metal-Rules.com (view that feature here) simply because to me it seemed many of these new – yet even quite damn talented I must say, Speed?n?Thrash Metal bands deserved more attention that they have managed to receive for themselves at that time.

A year later, having been following what?s been going on in the Finnish underground Metal scene for many years already – sometimes more actively, sometimes a bit less actively – I thought I would be the right enough time again to bring 10 new Finnish Speed ? and Thrash Metal bands to attention that had made a positive impact on me one way or the other during these last 12-14 months or so. Almost every band of the 10 interviewed bands in this 2nd part of ?The Finnish Speed ? and Thrash Metal Special? is still unsigned (with the exceptions of both HateFrame and Solitaire) and is looking for a suitable label to sign with, so if you happen to own a record label and your main interest has been focused around this particular genre mostly, then don?t hesitate to check out the bands for this special feature.

Without prolonging your burning curiosity about the featured bands any longer, now let?s get started with the 2nd invasion of Finnish speed merchants & thrash bangers? read on!

ANJ : Interview with Anatoly Zhuravlev

March 18th, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

Heavy Metal has always been very popular in Russia so it isn’t any surprise that several big bands and names are willing and eager to tour the country. However, Russian bands have remained more on the underground level internationally even though they enjoy tremendous success at home. The Russian metal lanscape is definitely huge, vital and has plenty of new and excellent bands ready to conquer the scene. ANJ is one of the new rising metal names from Russia and was chosen for a crossfire of questions from Metal-Rules.Com. The band?s leader and vocalist Anatoly Zhuravlev shed some light on ANJ.
