Interview by Celtic Bob

Philip Anselmo, Brazil, April 2013

Philip Anselmo, 2013

This interview took place this summer just after the LP came out. It began as a late night/early morning talk while watching Philip’s interview with Loyola University on You Tube and how he would be very interesting to talk to. Shortly thereafter, I was on the phone talking to him about the new album, his label Housecore Records, his book, his film & music festival and Pantera’s POWER METAL album.

Finnish Symphonic Metal legends NIGHTWISH have revealed the cover artwork and more details of their upcoming new live DVD. »Showtime, Storytime« contains the entire NIGHTWISH headliner show, played at this years’ legendary Wacken Open Air – the world’s biggest heavy metal festival. The live show in the front of 85 000 screaming metalheads was directed by Ville Lipiäinen, filmed with seventeen cameras and has a total duration of 85 minutes.

The second disc consists of 120-minute tour documentary ‘Please Learn The Setlist in 48 Hours’, also directed by Ville Lipiäinen, with no short of drama or overall madness. Also, there is a 16-minute NIGHTWISH Table Hockey Tournament, filmed on tour. On top of this there are two music clips: ‘I Want My Tears Back’ (Live at Hartwall Arena) and ‘Ghost Love Score’ (Live in Buenos Aires).

The Wacken Open Air appearance was the first of the three final shows of the band’s `Imaginaerum World Tour´ 2013, which saw the Norsemen and their Dutch amazon Floor Jansen (REVAMP) playing of 104 concerts in 34 different countries with total audience of over 1,5 million fans around the globe.
Mastermind and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen states: “Our darling flying Dutchwoman, Floor Jansen, has been nothing but incredible during her time in NIGHTWISH on this tour, so this is a perfect opportunity to immortalize the current vibe of the band on film!” Read the rest of this entry »

ANNIHILATOR’s Jeff Waters “Set The World On Fire had us headlining to 80,000 people at the Dynamo Festival in Europe, so we were going up but North America didn’t see that”

September 16th, 2013

Annihilator - FEAST

Annihilator – FEAST

ANNIHILATOR mainman Jeff Waters is featured in a career-spanning interview with Dead Rhetoric. An excerpt from the discussion is available below:

Dead Rhetoric: As the ’90s wore on, the band started to do better in Europe, but remained idle in America. At that point, were you like, “Forget it!”?
Waters: “Yes, I stopped looking in 1995 when I was trying to get a deal for King Of The Kill. The Japanese and European labels were signing me to good deals, but I couldn’t get anyone in North America to respond to my faxes – that was the thing back then, and phone calls. Nobody wants us, reality check. I took it as a slam against me, the industry wouldn’t accept me. If I didn’t have Europe or Japan behind me I would probably be a bum on the street or dead right now (laughs). Music is my life, I didn’t want to change band names or music styles, I got lucky.”

Dead Rhetoric: What was the tipping point in terms of you shifting your focus away from North America? Was it Never, Neverland?

Waters: “Roadrunner dropped everything that was metal. There were no bands left from that purge- Canadian or United States that had the word metal in it. You had Robb Flynn from VIO-LENCE turn into MACHINE HEAD, they didn’t start off with the thrash they have been playing recently – they had red jumpsuits on and changed their sound/image. Bands lost their record deals – nobody was in a position to carry on. Most bands just got jobs, some bands adapted and got rid of their name, changed out musicians and went on. For Machine Head that worked. We said, this is what we do. We had the luck of Europe and Japan staying with these styles and still buying our music.

My opinion would be much different if those two territories had not been there, I probably would have been quite bitter and depressed. We didn’t have an option in North America unless I wanted to change the name of the band and play a different form of music. Set the World On Fire didn’t do well in North America, but it was the second biggest album for us ever in Japan, and King Of The Kill was the biggest one there, Set The World On Fire had us headlining to 80,000 people at the Dynamo Festival in Europe, so we were going up but North America didn’t see that. I didn’t have time to tour the world and try to break back in Canada and the United States. Playing this was not the kind of music the labels wanted to sign anyway, a traditional form of heavy metal and thrash metal. Fans may have wanted it, but the industry didn’t, the clubs didn’t, the booking agents didn’t.”
