Wacken Open Air 2015

September 29th, 2015


Wacken being sold out is a kind of mystery, for sure. The event is somehow sold out every year, but this year’s sell out wasn’t a surprise as Savatage with Trans Siberian Orchestra and Judas Priest were headliners. Thousands and thousands of metal fans from every corner of the world arrived at Wacken to have fun and enjoy metal. Instead the weather gods didn’t show much support towards the festival and all its visitors. The hard rains literally ruined the ground and soil of the festival area. The whole Wacken village and large area of fields became the ultimate mud war field. The weekend at Wacken was one hell of a surviving camp.

Despite the tremendous problems and brutal field of mud, the people still gathered to witness the return and resurrection of Savatage and the massive show from Trans Siberian Orchestra.

Bloodstock Open Air 2015

@ Catton Hall, Derbyshire

6th – 9th August 2015

Review by Demitri Levantis

Photography by Michelle Murphy



Picture the scene: a field in south Derbyshire. One moment, quaint and calm; serene, leafy and undisturbed.

But then, as the sun arises to the midday point one cloudless Thursday in august, thousands upon thousands of heavy metal fans swarmed forth out of the woodwork that is England 2015, to attend the twelfth official Bloodstock Festival (11th open air to be exact).

Arriving at the venue and seeing a hoard of hairy denim cut clad fans gathering outside, set the tone for what would be a fantastic evening. The crowds were eager and the mood outside the venue was excitable to say the least!

Sock Hop ‘O Doom 2015 – Calgary AB

Sock Hop ‘O Doom 2015

Black Label Society

w/ Hatebreed and Butcher Babies

To end off 2014 Black Label Society took Hatebreed and the Butcher Babies on tour across Canada with a trek through the US to finish off January 2015. The New Year’s Eve gig, titled the “Sock Hop O’ Doom 2015” happened to be in Calgary, Alta., at Flames Central. Doors weren’t opening until 8:30pm and the VIP meet and greet ran a bit late so the show didn’t start until 9:30pm. This gave people lots of time to enjoy some beverages (although it seems many had already been drinking since earlier in the evening) and purchase some Black Label Society knitted Christmas style sweaters.

Guitar icon Zakk Wylde, leader of Black LabelSocieity has announced  An Evening With Zakk Wylde a solo13-city tour across Canada featuring intimate versions of some of the band’s most popular songs, as well as songs from Wylde’sbest-selling solo album Book of Shadows and Southern rock band Pride & Glory.

“This is a special Thank You to the Canadian fans for making “Ain’t No Sunshine” top 20 – Top 20 people!” said Wylde.  “I love Canada!  They always welcome BLS and are so supportive.  To do a more intimate, stripped down show, especially in cities where you’re so embraced –  is just the ultimate.  You can take a song that you’ve played thousands of times, rearrange it and suddenly its something totally fresh and new.  Acoustically, the songs are just as powerful and heartfelt.  Even transposing them and performing them on piano, they are no less raw and familiar.

Zakk also has a special message to his Canadian fans: “Thanks to the Canadian chapter of the almighty Black Label for the success of Unblackened and the single, “Ain’t No Sunshine!!!” I am looking forward to an special evening with our Canadian family.”

Eagle Records is delighted to announce the release of Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head album on September 25 [MSRP $13.99 for CD, digital TBA].

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the release of this landmark album and in recognition of the influence of the band, and of Machine Head in particular. Some of rock music’s biggest names have each contributed a version of their favorite track on the album to create Re-Machined – A Tribute To Deep Purple’s Machine Head.

Re-Machined features specially recorded tracks from Jimmy Barnes & Joe Bonamassa, Black Label Society, Chickenfoot, former Deep Purple Mk III member Glenn Hughes with Chad Smith of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iron Maiden, the “supergroup” Kings Of Chaos (featuring Joe Elliott, Steve Stevens, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum), Metallica, Carlos Santana & Jacoby Shaddix and Steve Vai.

There are two wildly differing versions of the album’s most famous track “Smoke On The Water”, one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix and one from alternative rockers Flaming Lips, and Metallica have contributed their own special take on “When A Blind Man Cries”, a track recorded at the “Machine Head” sessions but originally released as the B-side to “Never Before”.

Iron Maiden’s “Space Truckin’” cover was actually recorded back in 2006. Lead singer Bruce Dickinson explains, “Initially we didn’t think we’d be able to contribute anything due to our touring commitments. Then we remembered ‘Space Truckin’ which we’d recorded as a single B-side during our A Matter Of Life And Death album session, but never used. However now, thanks to Kevin Shirley’s remixing skills, we’re able to include it on Re-Machined

Initially released as a limited edition Classic Rock “fanpack” on September 3, this is a truly unique release that will appeal to rock fans everywhere.
