Michael Angelo Batio

Michael Angelo Batio
Interviewed by EvilG
Thanks to: Lord of the Wasteland for providing extra interview questions, Drew for hooking us up, and to Deb for making the interview happen.

Just about every metal guitarist knows at least something about Michael Angelo Batio. He is best known for his twin-necked, left and right-handed double-guitar which he both invented and was the first to play. This ambidextrous virtuoso is not just a one trick wonder however. He is arguably the fastest guitar player you’ll ever hear and when he wants to, can play some slow yet engaging leads. Non-guitar freaks might remember Michael from his stint with the outrageous band Nitro which seems to have garnered the band a sort of cult-like and legendary status. In this interview we talk to Michael about his new solo album, HANDS WITHOUT SHADOWS, guitar playing, Nitro, and more.

Circle II Circle
Circle II Circle - Vocalist Zak Stevens
Interviewed by EvilG

Transcription by Duke
Live Circle II Circle pics from Rockreport.be

Circle II Circle’s Zak Stevens attained international fame during his stint as vocalist with metal legends Savatage. Unlike former members of some bands, Zak did not burn any bridges when he decided to take his leave from Savatage. After a short time out of the spotlight, Zak returned with his new band, Circle II Circle. He used the songwriting partners of both Chris Caffery and Jon Oliva (Savatage) for the two albums that Circle II Circle has released. In this lengthy interview, we talk to Zak about his time in Savatage, leaving the band, and the sometimes bumpy road that has been Circle II Circle.

Markus Grosskopf of Helloween

Interview with Helloween Bassist Markus Grosskopf

Interview and pictures by Luxi Lahtinen 


Helloween started their KEEPER OF THE SEVEN KEYS ? THE LEGACY World tour in Zlin, Czech Republic. As always, the band?s tour  is extensive, covering many countries in Europe, both South and North America and Japan. After many months of writing songs, recording and promoting the album the Pumpkin team felt a strong need to hit the road again. Maybe that was one of those tiny reasons why Finland was blessed by as many as 3 dates on this particular Helloween tour that the Finnish Helloween fans found a very pleasing surprise for them.

When Helloween arrived in Helsinki on the 26th of November 2005, we caught up with the band?s nearly 2-meter high bassist Markus Grosskopf for an interview. It was just 1 hour before one of the night?s two warm-up bands entered onstage to make the crowd ready for the band a majority of them had obviously come to see, the one and only Helloween.  

We found our way to the Helloween?s backstage, and it was almost immediately sensed from the overall atmosphere that both the crew and the band were in as high spirits as we were. We were quite surprisingly, greeted by a few free, ice-cold beers by the band members. Now that was a good sign to assume Markus might have been willing enough to push through this last interview of today, so we all sat down confortably, and the recorder started rolling…

Lord K from the band The Project Hate

January 2nd, 2006
by Anders Sandvall

ARMAGEDDON MARCH ETERNAL is the name of the new The Project Hate mcmxcix album. It is a brilliant album so I decided to look up and interview the bandleader and mastermind Lord K. It has been a while since the band was featured here in Metal-Rules.com so prepare yourself for an indepth look inside Lord K’s head.

Thanks to Lars Criss at Escapi for help with the interview.
Escapi provided the promo pics.

The Swedish doom-pioneers in Candlemass have recently released a new DVD and earlier this year came their long-awaited selftitled studio album. When the band arrived in Malmö, for the first time since 1990, on their tour together with Destruction and Deathchain I was obliged to take the opportunity to have a very short talk with the mastermind and band leader Leif Edling.

Bullet for My Valentine in HELSINKI

December 14th, 2005
by Marko Syrjala

To be honest this was probably my first time ever to write a review about a band which was almost entirely unknown to me. I had only seen the “Suffocating Under Words of Sorrow” video once from MTV and I knew that this band was nominated in the best new band category in various magazines. When I was asked to do this review I first hesitated a bit but after some thinking I decided to go for it and here are the results…
