Gorgoroth & Vital Remains

Review and Photos by Ashlinn Nash
The Garage queue is a lively one, with patch jackets, studs, spikes and of course the traditional array of faces adorning white face paint with variants of Carpathian forest to Watain inspired styles, all in all nothing short of a Peter Beste Picture book. Excitement and attention has been brought to The garage, let’s just hope it’s ready for it.

No matter how big Grave become they’re always going to be underground. Their subject matter may be gruesome, but this band are far from ruthless, bloodthirsty killers or demonic tyrants. On stage these guys are gods but offstage they’re down to earth guys just out there to play brutal music.
Having been playing for over 20 years now, they’ve been around almost as long as death metal itself. Joining Marduk on their tour of the Panzer Division album, we caught up with the only remaining founding member Ola Lindgren at the Underworld for a catch-up on the future of Grave.

Celebrating past legends is something the metal scene has always hung onto. Who can miss the Dimebag tributes every year, the Dio stage at Bloodstock and the Jeff Hanneman tribute is surely not too far off. One that you rarely hear of though is pioneer and father of death metal Chuck Schuldiner. Aiming to change this are three of his old band members who joined him at during his career. Death to All is a celebration of the life of this influential musician by keeping alive his work from over the years.

The innovators of the genre death’n’roll, Furbowl, have currently re-re-released their long lost treasured debut album THOSE SHREDDED DREAMS. Because of that I felt it was time to check out what Max Thornell, drummer and founder of the band, had been up to since we last spoke. In this interview you will read about what really happened 20 years ago when Furbowl released their debut and why Vic Records has now decided to re-release the item. We also spoke about Max’s other band Wonderflow that he founded after Furbowl and his newer act Hearse that he has together with Johan Liiva. Here comes an in-depth interview with one of the genres true icons Max Thornell.

Last year, the long time British death metal war mongers Bolt Thrower released a brilliant album called THOSE ONCE LOYAL. The band kicked off a long European tour that for the first time ever saw Bolt Thrower finally visit Finland. It was a plesant suprise to have the opportunity to talk to both Karl and Barry before they unleashed one hell of a gig at Nosturi in front of over 500 maniacs.

Jonas Torndal from Grave
Here is an interview with the guitar player and original member Jonas Torndal from the Swedish legendary death metal band Grave. Grave was one of the bands who formed the legendary Swedish death metal scene back in the beginning of the 90?s. Grave recently released their new album “FIENDISH REGRESSION” and they have held their fans in a steady grip throughout the years and refuses to compromise with how their music should sound.
