Lefay’s guitarist – Tony Eriksson
Interviewed by EvilG, April 2000

For those of you with your head up your ass, Lefay now have a new CD out entitled …—… (Morse code for S.O.S.) and it’s a must own for any fan of METAL. Tony Eriksson along with Charles Rytk?nen have been plugging away in (Morgana) Lefay throughout most of the 90′s and are still gaining momentum. I jumped at the opportunity to get to speak with Tony about the new Lefay CD, touring and even some info on Lefay’s home-base – Bolln?s, Sweden. There must be something in the water there…

Ken Jacobsen of Unleashed Power

Interviewed by EvilG in April 2000

Unleashed Power, the name says it all. This band is all about powerful METAL with a power/thrash edge. The brains behind this band is guitarist Ken Jacobsen, who’s crunchy thick rhythms will leave your head banging and your metal heart fulfilled. By no means is this simple music. In both lyrical content and composition this is some pretty heady stuff that might take you a couple of listens to appreciate. Their new EP Absorbed keeps growing on me each time I spin it. If you are a fan of intense aggressive power metal then you have to take a listen to these guys. The below interview is with Unleashed Power’s Ken Jacobsen.

Tuska Open Air Metal Festival 2005 – Helsinki Finland

August 28th, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

The Central Park Of Kaisaniemi ? Helsinki ? Finland
15th ? 17th of July 2005


Pics and reviews by Metal-Rules.com team Finland

What happens in the middle of July in the central park of the summer city of Helsinki every year? Well, what a easy question, the annual Tuska Open Air Metal festival takes place every year at that time. It pulls in over 33.000 metal hearts of all ages and all kinds of persons to spend an unforgettable metallic feast in the heart of Helsinki. As it is said The Gods made heavy metal which has turned out be nothing but right in every aspect as the weather was extremely warm and hot during the whole weekend apart from a few darker clouds having gathered around the area when Dimmu Borgir stepped on the stage and in general the atmosphere was peaceful and bigger problems managed to be avoided, thanks to the common metal spirit of the Finnish die hard metal freaks.

The bill of 2005 didn?t offer any offer so-called any big selling names like Nightwish being one of the headlining acts at Tuska last year, but instead a variety of different metal genres were at present ranging from a hyper-blasting grindcore to a more melancholic Finnish mainstream rock. Having a large range of metal proves Tuska is not limited to one certain metal category as everyone had something to feel, taste and see during the three long days.

The Tuska Open Air festival has reached and gained a lot of positive attention amongst the metal people around the world. There were people having arrived from Russia, Estonia, Sweden, all around Europe and even from some Far East countries. Despite not having a big name, the metal festival was totally sold out and even a few hundred leftover tickets for Friday were sold after all.

As usual it has turned out to be an annual mandatory tradition for having an article of the Tuska festival in Metal-Rules.Com, therefore the Finnish Metal-Rules.Com pain squad spent the whole weekend testifying several acts in action and tried to feel the spirit of Heavy Metal and enjoy the pleasure of the flesh as well during the three insane long days in the beautiful central park of Kaisaniemi and in the heart of Helsinki with several friends as well as everlasting enemies. Enjoy?

Interview with Lars L?fven of Defleshed

Interviewed in March 2000 by EvilG

Defleshed - band photo

Defleshed are one of the few newer EXTREME metal bands that I’ve gotten into recently. Their two CD’s that I’ve had the pleasure to hear -  “Under the Blade” and the newest, “Fast Forward” combine thrash and blackened death metal. This is quite the potent mixture and is not for those searching for “happy” music or “melodic” metal. This is pure brutality played tightly and with riffs that would make even Slayer jealous.
