Paulo Xisto Pinto Junior – Basist of Sepultura

 Paulo Xisto Pinto Junior of SEPULTURA

Interview, live & backstage pictures by Luxi Lahtinen

 

In March 15th 2006, the highly popular Swedish melo-metallers, In Flames and Brazilian metallers Sepultura, arrived in Helsinki under the moniker "Tuska Winter War" – bringing over 1000 fans of both bands to the House of Culture, Helsinki. A bit of an odd thing was, at least in my opinion, that it wasn�t In Flames supporting Sepultura, but Sepultura supporting In Flames this time around. So strange is the world sometimes…

I got an opportunity to meet Paulo, the bass player of Sepultura approx. 5 hours before the band�s showtime – and we not only concentrated talking about the band�s current European tour, Sepultura�s new album DANTE XXI, etc. but also got kinda excited over talking about the past times; one special bass guitar, how the times have changed in general, and how some (poor) people have gained some weight and grown old over the years – and became just looking a bit different. A simple and straight bullshitting is such jolly good fun from time to time, whatever excuse you may have to do so.

News or not, but Sepultura is still going strong these days – just no matter what people may think of them. If you think otherwise, well, let�s give Paulo a chance to prove you completely wrong and straighten out a few facts via this interview…

Dark Empire: Guitarist Matt Moliti

Interview by EvilG & Lord of the Wasteland

Matt Moliti’s Dark Empire offers a mix of power, prog, and thrash elements with a lot of shred and powerful vocals on their debut album DISTANT TIDES. Most of you will not recognize Matt’s name…yet. With the amount of talent he possesses he could very well have a bright future in metal. Matt, who’s been playing guitar since he was 13, attended the Berklee College of Music where his guitar teacher was none other than Joe Stump. The name from Dark Empire that many will recognize is vocalist Jens Carlsson of Persuader and Savage Circus. Rounding out the line-up is bassist Noah Martin (Lilitu) and Teemu Tahkanen (DIG). In the following interview we talk to Matt about how the band works, his guitar playing, and his future plans for Dark Empire.

SE CONQUER ALL FESTIVAL – Gaelic Theatre, Sydney 14 January 2006

SE CONQUER ALL FESTIVAL
BEHEMOTH with HOBBS ANGEL OF DEATH, The Amenta, The Furor, Psychroptic, Ebolie, Flesh Mechanic, Beyond Terror Beyond Grace
Gaelic Theatre, Sydney 14 January 2006

by Brat and Turner, photos by Brat

There is something to be said about the music we listen to representing the state of our mind. Those of you who have met me on the forum, at a gig or festival, or have read other reviews I have written will know that I’m the flower metal chick, so it’s understanding that I received so many questions and shocked reactions when I voiced my intentions of seeing BEHEMOTH. Plus HOBBS ANGEL OF DEATH were playing and I wanted to see them again.
Since Christmas, when I was forced to deal with some extreme emotions, I haven’t been able, and have even been afraid, to listen to power metal or any music where the lyrics have been understandable. It was time to load some aggressive music onto my iPod which wouldn’t take me on an emotional rollercoaster ride and the waiting promo copies of the new Exodus, Hypocrisy and Old Man’s Child were just what I needed. In need of more mind-numbing escapism, I then went in search of the latest BEHEMOTH CD, “Demigod”, but obviously I wasn’t the only person in Sydney who wanted to hear the latest offering before seeing them live so all I was left with was “Grom”. OK, so I’ll get a history lesson instead before I see them in the flesh. While I was at it, I picked up the HOBBS ANGEL OF DEATH CD “Hobbs Satan Crusade” which seems to be a local 2003 best of release.

Gamma Ray

April 17th, 2006
by Marko Syrjala

INTERVIEW BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ AND ARTO LEHTINEN   

PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

(Thanks to Lana Morganella for helping with the transcription)

Gamma Ray has become one of the leading names in the flourishing power metal genre. When it is widely known that most of Gamma Ray’s albums are well written and catchy power metal. Kai Hansen’s Gamma Ray visited Helsinki early this year by playing a one-off gig in Tavastia Club. Unfortunately the whole interview schedule went totally upside down due to Henjo’s accident on the ferry the night before. Therefore our private interview session became a normal general press event where several people asked all kinds of things.

Korzus Bassist Dick Siebert

April 6th, 2006
by Arto Lehtinen

Dick Siebert, The Bassist of The Brazilian Thrashers KORZUS

(Additional questions answered by guitarist Silvio Golfetti)

Interview by Arto Lehtinen

An interview series of The Brazilian metal bands continues again. Korzus being one of the longest running thrash metal bands from Brazil was definitely a logical choice for Metal-Rules.Com. Korzus has struggled year after year by putting out killer releases for example their latest output TIES OF BLOOD was a great slab of brutal and grove influenced thrashing metal. Even though Korzus isn’t widely known, the five piece Brazilian metal squad constantly keeps gigging all around Brazil and other South American countries. Therefore it was a great opportunity to interview Korzus’s founding member and bassist Dick Siebert to find out more about this legendary Brazilian thrash metal combo.

Chris Bailey, ex-vocalist of Infernäl Mäjesty

Chris Bailey, ex-vocalist of

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

 

The legendary Canadian thrashers Infernäl Mäjesty´s new interview was published through Metal-Rules.com in March 2006 in which both the band´s longtime guitarist Kenny Hallman and new, young frontman and throat torturer, Brian Langley, shed some light on Infernäl Mäjesty´s current situation. They especially spoke enthusiastically about the new Infernäl Mäjesty album in the works, titled SYSTEMATICAL EXTERMINATION.

The band changed vocalists with Brian Langley replacing Chris Bailey who was in the band on and off for 17 years. Naturally it was inquired as to what happened with him and what his primary reasons were for leaving the band.

Shortly after the interview was published in Metal-Rules.com, Chris Bailey, the ex-vocalist for Infernäl Mäjesty, contacted me via email, telling me if I wanted to know the real reason why he was not with them any longer, I could reach him at his email address for more info. I did because I felt like it´s always justified to hear from both of the parties impartially, giving both a fair chance to  to explain how things were seen from their own points of view. 

I need to remind all of you Metal-Rules.com does not take any responsibility for either Kenny´s or Chris´s sayings how truthful they are or are not; who´s telling the truth and who´s lying about what. This all will be left up to you, dear reader, to decide; you draw your own conclusions out of these two fellows´ stories.

Chris Bailey opens up for Metal-Rules.com exclusively and tells his own story about his leaving from Infernäl Mäjesty, so let´s hear him out…
