NAIL – Rainer and Cindy

March 22nd, 2007
by Celtic Bob

Rainer and Cindy Weichmann
March 21, 2007

Rainer and Cindy give Metal-Rules the exclusive 1st interview about their upcoming project NAIL. To some their name may not be be familiar yet but it will be. Back in the 80’s they were the most famous Metal indie band in NL, Canada (KAOS). Since then they both played with Canadian Metal legends HELIX. Now they have a new project and a fresh outlook and sound that is slightly familiar to the KAOS fans.

COMMUNIC – Vocalist/Guitarist Oddleif S.

COMMUNIC – Vocalist / Guitarist Oddleif S.

By Arto Lehtinen

Norway is mostly known for extreme black metal bands. Although black metal has a dominating grip in Norway, so called traditional metal bands presenting different styles have piece by piece gotten their names spread through the metal genre. For example, Communic, who definitely came from out of the blue with two incredible albums have managed to show that the Norwegians can create amazing, powerful, and above all, catchy, progessive metal. For obvious reasons, it was about time to get in touch with Communic vocalist/guitarist Oddleif to talk more about the band’s success and albums.

Celtic Frost & Kreator with Watain and Legion of the Damned

Celtic Frost & Kreator
with Watain and Legion of the Damned
KOKO Camden, London
18th March 2007

Review By HannTu
Pics by Dave Ingham (view his flickr photo album)
Note: Pics were taken on various dates of the UK tour!

My first ‘gig’, so to speak, for Metal-Rules.com started off freezing cold. London has been relatively warm for the past few weeks, but it chose today of all days to hail and snow and bluster while I was standing in line for 2 hours to watch the mighty Kreator at KOKO Camden. Bollocks to that for a start.

H e X e N – “Thrash or get trashed”

March 18th, 2007
by Metal Rules

Andre Hartoonian – Vocalist and bassist of H e X e N

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

HeXeN, this 4-headed Thrash Metal monster, comes from Los Angeles, CA. It is absolutely impossible to not like this band if furiously and aggressively played old school Thrash Metal is something that forces your neck muscles to intensely headbang. FROM THE CRADLE TO THE CHAMBER, which is the band´s latest demo, has been received very well by both the fans of HeXeN as well as people behind different organizations – and it´s only a matter of time before the band will take their next big step toward a wider audience.

Andre Hartoonian, whom duties contain bass handling and screaming his lungs out in the band, reveals more about HeXeN through this interview, his thoughts about both the past and present of the metal scene, as well as what Dave Mustaine from Megadeth told him in person when he got this unique chance to meet him face-to-face…

WINGER – drummer Rod Morgenstein

March 8th, 2007
by Marko Syrjala

ROD MORGENSTEIN

Rod Morgenstein’s professional music career began as a founding member of the groundbreaking group the Dixie Dregs in the 70’s. His unique, dynamic and musical drumming style has led Rod to win many awards such as Best Progressive Rock Drummer award in Modern Drummer Magazine�s Reader�s Poll 5 years in a row. Later on he has worked with such names as the Steve Morse Band and Jordan Rudess but there’s no doubt that he’s best known from his work with 80’s multi platinum hard rockers Winger. The band released three albums before they wraped it up in late 1993.  Each member then went their separate ways to pursue individual goals. Kip Winger has released a number of solo albums, Reb Beach has worked with many projects and is now a member of the legendary Whitesnake, Paul Taylor did some commercials and projects and Rod himself became an Associate Professor of Percussion at Berklee College of Music in Boston. He has also been doing different projects all the time. In the middle of 2006 it was announced that Winger will be back with new album "IV" and a partly renewed lineup. Winger’s reunion tour reached Finland last October and then I had a chance to sit down with Mr. Morgenstein himself and ask about the latest news and have a look back at some good old times. ENJOY  !

F L E S H – Pete “Flesh” Karlsson

March 8th, 2007
by Metal Rules


Flesh guitarist Peter “Flesh” Karlsson

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

 

The Swedish Death Metal patrol Flesh continues the tradition of twisted, nasty, brutal and old school Death Metal. With the band´s 2nd album, titled TEMPLE OF WHORES, Pete “Flesh (aka Peter Karlsson)” leaves no compromises for what his solo project Flesh has been made of. That would be: Intrigueing rhytmns, hypnotic riffs, a blessing of an unholy ghost, evil and darkness. This is all that a devoted Death Metal fan is supposed to respect in old school Death Metal in general.  

Pete talked to Metal-Rules.com in order to reveal more about this project band of his (not to forget his other both previous – and current bands from Maze of Torment to Thrown!), and made himself quite clear in the interview, that Flesh is here to stay with us at least ´til the end of humanity.

Now let´s unleash the great beast Pete himself and allow him to separate the flesh from the bones by telling us more accurately what this embodiment of morbidity called Flesh is all about…

NERLICH – Growler & Guitarist Miikka

March 2nd, 2007
by Metal Rules

Miikka talks – Growler & guitarist of NERLICH

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

 

There´s never enough a REAL old school Death Metal around these days, is there? Nerlich, a relatively young Finnish old school Death Metal band, by age at least, have truly understood the basic idea of what the two words “old school” really mean. They’ve understood this since they started churning out their heavy and crushing Death Metal in the fall of 2003. In Nerlich´s uncompromising Death Metal one is able to trace down similarities to bands such as Death, Gorguts, Pestilence, and Suffocation – yet Nerlich are able to create something that gives them their own trademark sound.

Nerlich´s debut album, DEFABRICATED PROCESS, was released via California-based Old School Metal Records in January 2007, and Metal-Rules.com wanted to inquire from the band´s main song writer, growler and guitarist, Miikka Merikallio, a thing or two about the album itself. As well, we find out what he thinks about how people will welcome and accept them as one of those rare Death Metal bands that still have ´THAT SOMETHING´ special characteristic in their sound – and what so many other bands unfortunately lack these days.

Ok now, to get this interview started…
