Iced Earth – Interview With Jon Schaffer
Interviewed on Dec. 5, 1998 by EvilG

Iced Earth, a band that has been around for nearly 10 years yet still hasn’t made a noticeable impact in the USA. Why have they been the underdogs? I’ll tell you why, they have never sold out nor changed their sound to accommodate the flavor of the week. This is no bubble gum band and Jon makes no bones about it, Iced Earth are a heavy metal band.

UNLEASHED POWER – Ken Jacobsen

Ken Jacobsen of Unleashed Power
Reviewed / Interviewed August 13, 1997 by EvilG


Unleashed Power are an aggressive power metal band based out of New York. U.P. are not at all new to the metal scene. Below is a summary of their background from their bio.

Unleashed Power, now U.P., had it’s origin way back in the mid-eighties where the Danish band, Avalon, recorded an LP called “Unleashed Power”, produced by Metallica renowned producer, Flemming Rasmussen. Guitarist, Ken Jacobsen and vocalist, John Mathias were the corner stones of that band. Avalon dissolved with the forming of Unleashed Power in 1989 when Ken Jacobsen and Ed Owen (Drums) joined together. The band now had it’s foundation in New York and was on it’s way to record the first demo “Blindfolded” in 1991, followed by the critically acclaimed demo “Quintet of Spheres” in 1992. Members changed when singer, Joe Karavis, decided to part ways due to musical differences after the demo recordings in 1992. However, the decision to proceed with the full length album “Quintet of Spheres” had already been made, so John Mathias received the call to fill the vocalist position anew. The now transatlantic lineup had a massively impressive response to their 1993/94 debut album “Quintet of Spheres”. After a string of shows in the northeast of the United States, tragedy struck in the summer of 1994 with the untimely death of bassist, John Lievano. Ed Owen’s disillusionment with the destitute prospect of finding a replacement and recording another album sans label, culminated with his departure. Enter J?rg Michael, renowned German drummer, whose credentials include: Mekong Delta, Stratovarious and Rage. Bassist, Tony Spagone joined for the album to fill the vacant position and last, but definitely not least, vocalist, Brian T. Chaffee received the call, as he and U.P. exchanged demos awhile ago. John Mathias had left the band in 1995 feeling unable to do justice to the new direction the group had undertaken, which requires a heavier approach.

Paul Fenner of Fe26

Fe26 is a band on the rise. The new CD “A Worldly Story” is now out and the band are currently doing intensive touring to support this killer CD.

I was offered the opportunity to interview the vocalist Paul Fenner and of course I jumped at the chance. Fenner is one of the most original and versatile vocalists in metal today. Just check out their song “10 Degrees And Counting” to hear how he switches from the clean vocal style to a death growl. Now onto the good stuff…the questions!!

James Murphy
Interviewed in Jan. 1997 by EvilG

 

Testament update January 1997:
The news about Testament seems to be changing quickly. First the band broke up. James Murphy went off to release his new CD “Convergences” and Chuck Billy and Eric Peterson stuck it out. They went by the name ”Dog Faced Gods” and on drums was former Machine Head member Chris Kontos. Chris has since left and Chuck and Eric have decided to stick with the Testament name. Lets hope they get a band together SOON and continue in the same vein as LOW.

Well here some new info on what James Murphy has been up to and the news from the Testament camp.

Thrash Against Cancer – Saturday 9 July Bay Area

August 19th, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

Thrash Against Cancer
Saturday July 9th, 2005
The Pound
Bay Area San Francisco

By Swissman

Cancer is an evil illness anyway but when it strikes a child it is a hundred times worse if you ask me. This is exactly what happened to the Regan family 2 ? years ago when right after the birth of their son Cole they found out that he had cancer. Unfortunately Cole lost the battle against cancer mid 2004.

Keith Regan decided to put on a show that would help his family and other families that were affected with pediatric cancer to cover some of the financial costs that you incur when you are going through such an ordeal. Most people do not realize that even if your insurance covers all the medical treatment there are other costs involved like co-payments etc. Shortly after that Keith started asking his friends and bands to help him to put together a benefit show to raise money. That show became the Thrash Against Cancer show. The first band that signed up was legendary bay area thrash band Testament. To move matters along, the help of Walter Morgan the original organizer of the Thrash of the Titans (TOTT) show was enlisted. Then things started to fall into place and at the end 16 bands signed up for the benefit show.

DARKEST HOUR: The Lost Interview
By Gabriel C. Zolman

Essentially a black/death band cleverly disguised as metallic hardcore, Darkest Hour is American Melodic Death?s brightest hope?especially in approaching the same intensity that hardcore has long since forgotten, and death metal has long taken for granted.

Ruisrock Festival 2005 – Turku Finland

August 4th, 2005
by Arto Lehtinen

RUISROCK FESTIVAL
8-10.7 2005
TURKU, FINLAND

Reviews and pics by Arto Lehtinen and Marko “Spandex” Syrjala

Ruisrock is one of several festivals arranged on the soil of Finland every year by carrying the profile and image of the main stream rock with the proud and honor. Ruisrock is claimed to be one of the longest running rock festivals arranged in a row without big breaks in Europe. The main important purpose of the concept of the festival is to present the frontline names of the Finnish rock scene and have a few big names booked to filling up a headliner?s spot. Originally the much claimed Velvet Revolver was supposed to conclude the whole festival on Sunday, but for a reason or another Slash and the company packed up and was replaced by a long time British gothic mongers Paradise Lost. However the festival was damn success in every aspect as all in all 70.000 people visited the festival during the weekened in the beautiful national park in a town called Turku. However here is the brief article of the festival with a solid dissection of a few bands which played there.
