“Stampede” was filmed on location in April in the high desert of California at Devil’s Punchbowl (a tilted sandstone formation with other-worldly geology) with director Greg Aronowitz (Batman & Robin, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, The Lost World: Jurassic Park) and features ACCEPT unleashing blistering heavy metal from the mountain tops against a wide-spanning horizon and an absolutely amazing natural backdrop.

METAL ALL STARS – Live at Hartwall Arena, Helsinki

April 17th, 2014
Metal All Stars

6′th of April 2014

Hartwall Arena, HELSINKI

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA AND ARTO LEHTINEN

The Metal All Stars touring circus landed at Finland in April. The whole tour had been advertised to have all the legendary heavy metal stars altogether such as Rob Halford, Vince Neil, Cronos, Tom Araya, Phil Anselmo and the former Megadeth guys Nick Menza and Martin Friedman. However the tour turned out to be one hell of a bluff when these legends vanished from the poster or announced no taking part in the Metal All Stars thing at all. Obviously the organization behind the curtains hasn’t pleased the bands and musicians that much either. When Metal All Star finally arrived after wild rumours and gossips, the 12000 seat Hartwall Arena was literally empty when only 2000 had crawled to witness the Metal All Stars. Well the Metal-Rules.Com was at present, witnessing this eccentric spectacle. Read the rest of this entry »

ACCEPT REVEAL TITLE & ARTWORK OF NEW STUDIO ALBUM

April 2nd, 2014
ACCEPT - Blind Rage

ACCEPT – Blind Rage

German heavy metal legends ACCEPT have announced Blind Rage as the title to their third studio album since their 2010 comeback and fourteenth studio album of their career. Set for release this summer in North America,Blind Rage will be produced, mixed, and mastered by Andy Sneap (EXODUS, MEGADETH, OPETH, ARCH ENEMY). 

“Something happened to us, something subliminal and impetuous,” states ACCEPT guitarist and main songwriter Wolf Hoffmann. “It is wild and scary and it’s called Blind Rage!  The cover artwork done by Daniel Goldsworthy shows the beast coming over us – in blind rage – all over the planet. Wherever we go, whenever you turn on the TV, there is blind rage in the works – either natural catastrophes or man-made madness.”

Proudly representing the “Made in Germany” trademark, ACCEPT fashioned distinct musical blueprints that have influenced multiple generations of followers. They have kept their music and artistry relevant around the world and have overcome staggering odds to maintain international careers for over three decades.  Read the rest of this entry »

SCORPIONS with very special guests ACCEPT: Live at Hartwall Arena, Helsinki

December 22nd, 2013
Accept & Scorpions

HARTWALL ARENA, HELSINKI

11′th of November 2013

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

German bands Scorpions and Accept made history by appearing together for the first time in their decades-long careers. Having these two legendary bands performing at the same event sounds like a brilliant idea and the audience seems to agree, as the Helsinki gig sold comfortably over 9000 tickets. Accept have been enjoying great success since their latest re-union, or “the rebirth”, which took place in 2009. The renewed line-up consists of founding members guitarist Wolf Hoffman and bassist Peter Baltes, drummer Stefan Schwarfmann who’s been on/off member of Accept since the 90’s, rhythm guitarist Herman Frank (Victory) who played in Accept during BALLS TO THE WALL era in the 80’s and vocalist Mark Tornillo (ex-T.T Quick) who has replaced the original singer Udo Dirkschneider. Their latest two releases BLOOD OF THE NATIONS (2010) and STALINGRAD (2012) both present a hungry band which wants to go strongly ahead and not live in the past. Accept is one of the most successful German metal bands ever but the Scorpions is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time. The band was formed in in 1965 by Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker and to this day the band has released 17 studio, 6 live and several collection albums which altogether have reached sales of 75 over million copies worldwide. In January of 2010, the band announced their intentions for STING IN THE TAIL to be their last album, with the tour supporting it being their final tour. But during the tour Scorpions changed their minds and here we are, more than three years later, witnessing the first Scorpions show in Helsinki since 2004. But before that it’s time to check out of the mighty Accept…

U.D.O. Live at Club Nosturi, Helsinki

November 10th, 2013
U.D.O

U.D.O.

CLUB NOSTURI, HELSINKI

October 5′TH 2013

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

German metal band U.D.O., led by former Accept vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, have been regular visitors in Finland during the past years. The band released its 14th studio album STEELHAMMER on last May and it also introduced U.D.O.’s renewed line-up including Udo, longtime members: bassist Fitty and drummer Francisco Jovino, and new guitarist duo Kasper Heikkinen and Andrey Smirnow. It seems that U.D.O. is still enjoying such a strong success in Finland as they now played in front of a practically sold out Club Nosturi in Helsinki.

BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2013

September 1st, 2013

Bloodstock Open Air 2013

@ Catton Park, Derbyshire, UK

8th – 11th August 2013

Review by Anna Dumpe & Ben Spencer

Photography by Michelle Murphy


Imagine a weekend of nothing but pure heavy fucking metal.
Imagine being surrounded by the friendliest 15,000 people who share the same passion for heavy metal music and lifestyle. Imagine a place where it is respectable to have beer for breakfast and drinking until you drop in an accomplishment. Imagine a festival where you can see over 100 heavy metal bands and pretty much none of them suck.

Ladies and gents, this ain’t no heavy metal fairytale!

This is Bloodstock Open Air – the greatest heavy metal music festival of our times. It’s a place where metal heads run free, headbang until their heads roll off, shout ‘SLAYEEER!’ and avoid shower for 4 days straight.
It just does not get any better than this.

Our Metal-Rules.com UK team were privileged to attend Bloodstock Open Air 2013 and see things for themselves…here’s a ‘little’ insight of what went down.

For the fourth year in a row, it is once again time for this years edition of Copenhell Festival. The festival is the largest metal/hardrock festival in Denmark and located in the outskirts of Copenhagen. The organizers, Live Nation Denmark, had  outdone themselves this year and booked more bands than ever. They had also branched out music-wise and this year was not only dedicated to the more extreme forms of metal but also to traditional metal. The bands that performed included: In Flames, Ghost, Accept, Sabaton, Testament, and the Danish metal legend King Diamond who’s show closed the festival at Saturday night. Read about the great festival below. Read the rest of this entry »

HELLFEST 2013

July 17th, 2013

Hellfest Festival 2013

@ Clisson, France

21st- 23rd June 2013

Review by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs
Photography by Tess Donohoe  Hellfest

It may be some people’s epitome of hell, Michael Buble fans I’m looking at you, but for the metal/rock community Hellfest’s towering gateway looks positively pearly. This year’s line-up is so jam-packed that I was looking for the little glass jars and labels. You’d make a fortune if you could bottle any number of the diverse scope of bands on the bill, with the riffs left in natch, but I’d like them to play their sets first.

Once inside that gateway the layout is much the same as last year, and that isn’t meant in a well-they-clearly-couldn’t-be-arsed sense, because Hellfest could teach most others a thing or 20 on how to put together a fan-friendly festival. Except when it comes to the number of toilets on site that is.

Whilst the Hellfest tree still dominates in its stark simplicity, the hidden beer gardens have gained a snazzy gateway of their own, which invites you into the woodlands. Instead of a fairytale monster at the end of the path though, you’ll find a winebar, which is win-win really. And at night the scrap-metal merch stands and bars still glow with their own rooftop fires.

Stage-wise we’ve got Main Stage 1 and 2, which continue their staggered times so that as one plays, the other sets up, and vice versa. The result is no waiting around for soundchecks or bands to start, just back-to-back bam-bam-bam metal. A similar set-up is in place at the Altar and the Temple, where you can find black metal, death metal and the like, then there’s the Valley which is home to the stoner and doom types, and the Warzone where the punk and hardcore drops.

Hellfest 2013 – it’s like being welcomed home.

SWEDEN ROCK 2013

July 12th, 2013

Swedenrock 2013

SWEDENROCK FESTIVAL 2013

Article and pictures by Arto Lehtinen and Marko Syrjälä

“Welcome to the show” – welcomed by KISS  when headlining the second day of the Sweden Rock fest. Well, once again the Finnish Metal-Rules.com team made their annual roadtrip to Sweden Rock. Metal Rules has covered Swedenrock since 2001, therefore it is quite logical to cover the festival again. The 2013 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide. It has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article on several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The weather was tremendous during these four days. The Metal-Rules.com team was there witnessing bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Rock on!
