November 1st, 2005
by Anders Sandvall

Alex is the singer in the new Swedish up and coming thrash act Scaar which recently unleashed their second album titled THE SECOND INCISION. I became interested in Scaar when I had their new album mailed to me and decided to try to contact Alex in order to do an interview, and finally here it is.

Sentenced – In Memoriam

October 28th, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

SENTENCED – IN MEMORIAM

When one of the leading and most important frontline metal names on the Finnish metal map, Sentenced,  announced earlier this year about ceasing to exist after being around for 16 years. Fans around the globe were stunned and surprised. The band had to explain the reasons to the media and fans why they decided to retire from the metal world even though there would have been several years left for the outfit to carry on and conquere new fans and new territories with their dismal and melancholic metal message.

However the northernmost suicide rockers didn’t hammer the last nail into the coffin after the announcement, instead rolling out for several festival dates to give the very last chances for their own fans to see these five cowboys from the north on stages all around Europe. Due to the huge demand to see the Finnish metal heroes on the soil of their home country, several dates were booked across Finland and even extra dates were added to the farewell tour. Here is a brief report of the few last gigs of Sentenced when the band did their farewell shows here in Finland. Now it was about time to throw the mud on the grave and say goodbye….

Wacken Open Air 2005

Wacken Open Air 2005
Review By Brat
Good photos by Metaltix (www.metaltix.com)
Not so good ones by Brat
Other photos acknowledged as they appear

What a line-up this year! W:O:A 2005 was to be my biggest and best Wacken festival since my virgin outing in 2002, when I was forced to watch so many half sets because a lot of the bands I wanted to see clashed. Over the years the organisers have improved scheduling immensely from a power/melodic metal perspective with very few power/melodic metal bands clashing by firstly, swapping the positions of the True and Black stages putting the Black stage further from the Party stage; secondly, running the Black stage and Party stage almost simultaneously; and thirdly, running a band competition (Metal Battle) and low profile or relatively new acts on the Wet stage.

For those not familiar with the festival set up of Wacken Open Air, the True and Black stages are the two main stages set side by side and run bands alternately. The True stage usually features melodic, power and old-school bands, while the Black stage usually features the more extreme styles of metal. The Party stage is a smaller outdoor stage set to the far left of the festival area, and in past years, has been dominated with melodic metal. The aptly named Wet stage is in a large tent and in hot conditions resembles a sauna making it somewhat uncomfortable. Ironically, this was the only dry stage this year.

Hanker Vocalist Pascal Cliche
Interview by EvilG

All right power metal freaks, if you haven?t heard of them, Hanker are perhaps the best power metal band you have yet to hear! Hailing from Quebec, Canada, the band has been around since the mid-80?s and has been getting consistently better with each release. Their latest, WEB OF FAITH, is discussed here along with line-up changes, touring, future plans etc.

It?s not every day that someone gets to talk with god. Recently, Duke from Metal-Rules.com did just that when he had a discussion with Lemmy of Mot?rhead.  With the band celebrating its 30th anniversary and Lemmy?s recent lifetime achievement award Duke speaks to Lemmy about his career, unfulfilled goals, WWII memorabilia, smoking bans, and lots of other topics. So enough out of me, let?s hear from the man, the legend?LEMMY!

ONSLAUGHT – Steve Grice

October 11th, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

 

Onslaught wasone of the first UK thrash/death outfits to unleash three mind blowing thrash metal outputs in the 80?s. The band?s second effort THE FORCE is considered their greatest album featuring the legendary Sy Keeler on the vocals. However due to several reasons Onslaught reached its final peak in the early 90?s when several other 80?s thrashers disappeared and split up at that time. In 2005 the reformation of Onslaught came out of blue to several old school thrash metal worshippers when the legendary UK thrashers from Bristol announced that they would perform some gigs and start working on new material. Therefore it was a ?must? to have an interview with the band?s drummer Steve Grice to find out more about the reformation and of course about the historical background of the band.

Devil Doll Records

Industry Profile

Devil Doll Records

 

Interview by Keith McDonald

There seems to be more and more, albeit smaller, outlets for hard music. Whether it?s Forever Underground, Eclipse or Now or Never Records, unknown talented metal and hard rock acts are finding homes to release their material. The majors are either too busy or not interested in finding and developing these types of acts – but Devil Doll Records is.
 
I recently had the opportunity to speak with the Long Beach, CA based label President John Geldback who gave me a little information about his label venture. You can check out their website at www.devildollrecords.com to get more info.

TESTAMENT – Alex Skolnick

TESTAMENT – Alex Skolnick

 

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen and Marko Syrjala

Live and offstage pictures by Luxi Lahtinen and Marko Syrjala

Thanks to Blake Wolfe for the transcription

 

There is no doubt that Testament is one of the most important bands in the history of Speed – and Thrash Metal. The original line-up of Testament has released such classic albums as "The Legacy", "New Order" and "Practice What You Preach". In 1992 the band unfortunately lost its two original members when guitarist Alex Skolnick and drummer Louie Clemente decided to leave the band, but luckily the rest of the band still decided to carry on, releasing more high quality albums with several different line-ups.

Now thirteen years later Testament are back with the classic line-up – and let?s at least hope they are here again to stay. We met Alex Skolnick at the backstage after Testament’s brilliant performance at the Tuska Festival last July, talked with him about both the days of Legacy (pre-Testament), Testament and his musical career in some other line-ups (Savatage, etc.) naturally as well.

Here?s the result of that particular conversation, so enjoy your reading…  ;o)
