When Metal All Stars tour was first announced, many people had doubts about the quality and legitimacy about this specific project simply because of how impressive the line-up was. In the very beginning Metal All Stars was a tour that would take many musicians, like Zakk Wylde, Tom Araya, Vince Neil, Cronos, Phil Anselmo and many more on a tour across Eastern and Northern Europe, but after few artists cancelling or denying their appearances on Metal All Stars tour, it was questioned by even more people.
The truth is, until the actual day of the show, many heavy metals fans of Latvia really had no clue if the performance is actually going to happen due to lack of advertisement and news about artists, like Vince Neil, Phil Anselmo, Cronos, etc cancelling their appearances just days before the tour kicks off. However the show DID happen and we were there to see it all for ourselves. Read the rest of this entry »

Massachusetts-based thrashcore titans, Shadows Fall, have clawed their way up through the metal ranks by touring endlessly and releasing three strong albums in a row.  Their Century Media debut, 2000?s OF ONE BLOOD, got the buzz going but it was 2002?s THE ART OF BALANCE that really got the band?s name out there.  The strength of that record landed them a second stage spot on Ozzfest 2003 and they became the name that everyone was talking about.  Sharing a stage with bands as diverse as Cradle of Filth, King Diamond, In Flames, The Misfits, Killswitch Engage, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Kittie hasn?t hurt their exposure either.   The band, along with Century Media, wisely capitalized on that momentum and just released THE WAR WITHIN, a ten song slice of aggression, melody, solos and more riffs than you can shake a stick at.  Having seen Shadows Fall live twice myself, I can attest to their energy and obvious dedication to reigniting the metal fire in < ?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />North America.  Three weeks after the release of THE WAR WITHIN and just three days before the band kicked off the ?Devastation Across The Nation Tour? with Damageplan and The Haunted, I was treated to a half hour chat with Shadows Fall vocalist Brian Fair.  We met briefly when the band passed through Vancouver on the Headbanger?s Ball tour last year and Fair is truly one of the nicer interviewees I have ever had the pleasure of speaking with.  He is sharp, articulate, funny and just a downright nice guy.  Read below to learn more about the band?s new album, how touring takes its toll on your body and the up-and-coming pirate-core scene in western Massachusetts.
