Crucified Barbara – Ida EvilEye

September 18th, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

Crucified Barbara being the female band hailing from Sweden is a damn interesting combo playing the catchy hard rock stuff with some punkish elements tied up. The debut album ?IN DISTORTION WE TRUST? is an excellent piece of the great rocking material indeed. Even though the Swedish Metal-Rules.Com contributor recently interviewed the vocalist of Crucified Barbara Mia Coldheart, however it was the turn of the band?s bassist Ida EvilEye to tell a little bit more about the band and tours? Enjoy

Kick Axe Bassist Victor Langen

Canada?s Kick Axe got a raw deal, plain and simple.  Plucked from bar band status and molded into an image that personified them as the hair band du jour by 80s uber-producer, Spencer Proffer, the Regina-based five-piece took the fast road to success with 1984?s VICES album (featuring ?Heavy Metal Shuffle? and ?On The Road To Rock?), its quickie follow-up, 1985?s WELCOME TO THE CLUB and finally 1986?s ROCK THE WORLD.  As quickly as they rose to success, the band went down in flames amongst a sea of lawsuits brought on by bad management in 1987.  Forced into hiatus until the numerous legalities were ironed out, Kick Axe returned in 2004 with the simply titled, IV.  Along the way, the ?classic? lineup lost vocalist George Criston, but was replaced with original vocalist/drummer, Gary Langen.  That album?s success was fueled not only by its mix of straight-ahead rockers and AOR-ready ballads but by the cult status that Kick Axe has achieved over the years.  Original copies of the ROCK THE WORLD CD fetch nearly $200 US on eBay, a Czech fan site has every imaginable detail about the band?s history and a devoted fanbase still exists for Kick Axe?s crunching riffs, soothing vocal melodies and fist-pumping anthems.

Being a long-time fan?Kick Axe/Helix in 1984 was one of my very first concerts?I spoke with bassist Victor Langen back in October 2004 just 11 days before the band was to play a CD release party for IV at a small, out-of-the-way Vancouver club.  The interview (which has undergone nearly as many trials and tribulations as the band itself!!) deals with the new lineup and CD but also the countless obstacles the band faced along the way during our 90-minute chat.  Most surprisingly, Langen speaks in detail of how Rob Halford of Judas Priest personally picked Kick Axe to open their DEFENDERS OF THE FAITH tour, how Criston was almost chosen as the vocalist for Black Sabbath, the band?s encounters with W.A.S.P., King Kobra and Quiet Riot, as well as numerous other eye-opening tales of life on the road with Kick Axe!!!

Iron Savior – Piet Sielck

September 6th, 2005

Piet Sielck of Iron Savior
Interviewed by EvilG in Feb. 2001

I was very excited to be given the opportunity to interview the true brain behind Germany’s sci-fi power metallers, IRON SAVIOR – Piet Sielck. Piet became a known name in the metal arena as a producer and engineer, working with bands like Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, Saxon and Grave Digger. After a few years in this role the desire grew to form a band of his own…and thus began the saga of the Iron Savior. Since their first self titled release in 1997 the band have recorded three CD Singles / EP’s and two other full-length albums. Their most recent, and arguably their strongest work to date is the magnificent album DARK ASSAULT. Released in Jan 2001, this CD continues the tale of the Iron Savior and has proven to me that this band is no mere side project but an entity that stands on it’s own as one of the finest true metal bands on the scene today.

Necrodeath’s Guitarist, Claudio
Interviewed in Feb 2001 by Arto Lehtinen

The legendary Italian cult deathrashers Necrodeath have returned back from the beyond after being on hiatus since the first split up 1989 and of course their new and third output “Mater of all evil” was unleashed in the beginning of this year and it definitely shows this band truly rules and every old school deathrash manic should get that album immediately. Here is the interview with the guitarist Claudio. www.necrodeath.com

Dekapitator – Matt Harvey

September 4th, 2005

Matt Harvey of Dekapitator
Interviewed in Jan 2001 By Luxi Lahtinen

“…We wanted to show those Europeans that the Bay Area has always been the ultimate breeding ground for Thrash Metal and that we could whip ass on all the Swedish poser bands…”

Jezuz!! When you’re playing with Matt Harvey of DEKAPITATOR, you’re  playing with fire. At the age of 13, he got to hear bands like POSSESSED, KREATOR, CELTIC FROST, etc. for the very first time. I guess somehow he obviously knew that the world couldn’t be the same for him from that day on. The second coming of the Bay Area Thrash Metal may well be in the tight grip of DEKAPITATOR but now however, let’s just unleash the beast himself. That beast’s leading us right behind the darkest corners of the well-kept secrets of the band. Ladies and gentlemen, may I proudly present… DEKAPITATOR from the Bay Area, San Francisco…
