Summit Music Hall – Denver, CO
December 2nd, 2016
After a nearly four-year hiatus, I am very pleased to return to Metal-Rules.com as a concert reviewer! Having relocated to Denver, I am also pleased to see how many metal shows are coming to the Rockies. I was very excited about this lineup, as CHILDREN OF BODOM and ABBATH (or IMMORTAL?) have created some of my absolute favorite metal CD’s of all time.
The Tuska Open Air Festival has carved its name as one of the most important metal festivals amongst all other metal festivals in Europe. The media, label staff and PR -people travel all over the world to attend and feel and see the metal culture in Finland. All in all, 28,000 metal maniacs made a visit to a sold-out Tuska during three days. That’s excellent, as Tuska will be turning 20-years old next year, therefore it can be expected we’ll see something really unique as well as some bigger bands in 2017.
The line-up of the festival was mostly ignored the normal radio friendly audience whereas the die-hard metal freaks arrived at the Tuska Open Air Festival. Ghost, Avantasia, the domestic metal export Children Of Bodom and a number of other interesting names, like old thrash metal veterans Testament and Anthrax had to be witnessed of course. The Finnish Metal-Rules.com team was present the whole time and managed to catch several interesting bands during the 3 long days of pure metal madness.

Few bands have had a rougher go of it than Megadeth the last few years. In 2014, band leader Dave Mustaine had to undergo neck surgery a second time, cancelling their participation in the inaugural Motorboat cruise. Then longtime band members Chris Broderick (guitars) and Shawn Drover (drums) left Megadeth, citing creative differences. The band didn’t tour for a long time, but I just knew wily ol’ Dave had something good up his sleeve. Never, ever, count Megadeth out! Dave’s response to these challenges was to recruit Lamb of God’s drumming powerhouse Chris Adler and Brazilian shredder Kiko Loureiro from Angra and then record the band’s best album in years, DYSTOPIA! Only a killer bill would be fitting for the tour, so we get crossover thrash legends Suicidal Tendencies (with fucking Dave Lombardo on drums!), melodic death metallers Children of Bodom, and young in age but old in style thrashers Havok! Are you metalheads salivating yet or what? Tonight we are in Bethlehem PA, a former steel town that generated most of the steel used for the US ships during WWII. Let’s get Bethlehem cranking out some metal again! SET THE WORLD AFIRE! BRING IT!

at GEC in Calgary, Alberta

Sunday, March 6th was a semi-historical occasion in the Calgary Metal scene. It was the first time that a Metal concert was hosted in the Grey Eagle Casino, a beautiful new venue in Calgary. Sure Queensrcyhe had played the GEC a couple months before but the small seated crowd of 500 older fans but that gig was almost a warm-up for the crowd and style of show as the sold out Megadeth tour. There were so many unanswered questions…would the layout be seats or standing area? Would it be loud enough? How would the line-up’s be? Could security handle the crowd? And most importantly…would there be enough beer?! I’m pleased to say the GEC met all expectations as it was a great, safe show and it seemed that all the 2700 or so people had a great time.

Review by Billy Edmonds
Today Finnish metal superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM have released the first official music video for “Morrigan” from their ninth studio album I Worship Chaos that is set for an October 2nd release via Nuclear Blast. Legendary, Swedish director Patric Ullaueus known for his work with Europe, Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy and others, handled the production duties on the video. Check out the video HERE.
Patric states: “The last time I worked with COB we did great stuff together.
Trashed, Lost and Strungout was Gold awarded and the Chaos Ridden Years Stockholm Knockout Live DVD was also Gold awarded. So after all these years it was a great pleasure to get to work with them again. The band decided not to be in the video as they wanted to tell the story about The Warrior Goddess Morrigan and together with the band we made this tale about a man fighting his inner demons.”
Hellfest Festival 2015

Break out the balloons – it’s birthday time! No, not just mine (although thank you very much), but Hellfest’s big 1-0, the crossing point into double figures, the decade marker. It’s practically an institution now, not just in France, not just in Europe but across the world with folks coming from every which place to rock n revel. Hellfest is just about the best damn festival out there, so you KNOW this is going to be special.

Sweden Rock 2015
REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY ARTO LEHTINEN, MARKO SYRJALA AND PATRICK CLEMENT
The Finnish Metal-Rules.com commando team made their annual road trip to Sweden Rock. Metal-Rules.com has covered Sweden Rock since 2001. The 2015 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Over 70 bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees during the four day festival. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years always being sold out. This year wasn’t an 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 of several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The weather was tremendous, despite being quite windy and cold on the opening day. But we were there for 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!

“Dear COB Hatecrew, we need to share something with you at this point. Our friend, brother, and a guitar player for 12 years, Roope, is no longer with the band. As we parted ways with no bad blood, we wish him nothing but the best and thank him for allowing us to share the last 12 years of our lives with him. Hope you know that this will not affect the upcoming shows or the new album as we recorded it as a four piece and it is already mixed, mastered, heavy as shit and ready to go! Enough said, See you soon!”
Finnish metal superstars CHILDREN OF BODOM are currently busy recording ten new tracks for the band’s forthcoming 9th album release in their own studio in Helsinki.
The band took some time out to report from the recording desk and give fans an update on the sessions.

Bloodstock Open Air 2014
@ Catton Hall Derbyshire
7th- 10th August 2014
Review by Ashlinn Nash

Bloodstock has become something of a staple holiday for many metal heads, with its fine selection of musical delights, the drinking until dawn, great company, dressing up and of course the bin jousting! What more could you want besides all of this?

Deals Death Interview
@ 02 Islington Academy
5th April 2014
Interview by Ben Spencer
Photography by Graham Hilling
Straight after an interview with tonight’s head liners Aamranthe, we journeyed outside the 02 Academy and were met by Deals Death front man Ollie Ekman who suggested we conduct our interview on the band’s respective Tour bus. Once inside, he informs us not to stare too long at the lights due to risk of burning our retinas (laughs), and so we begin to learn more about the Finish Metal titans whose sound has been evolving ever since their early formation in 2007.
