Tuska Open Air Metal Festival – Helsinki Finland June 27-29, 2012

July 28th, 2012

Tuska Open Air 2012

Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland

June 27-29, 2012

The Tuska Open Air Festival is definitely a real metal festival institution amongst all other metal festivals in Europe. This current area, Sivulahti, almost located in the heart of Helsinki, only a few kilometers away from the downtown, is a new home for Tuska for the second time. Suvilahti is more like an industrial environment with the burning and hot asphalt underfoot. When raining, at least the area won’t turn to one hell of a big mud fest.

Another thing forcing Tuska to make a change was the date. Originally the festival was supposed to be at the beginning of July, but another big more international based festival took over the date and Tuska was postponed until three weeks later. Well at least some people got pissed off at the changed date. Obviously a few band negotiations needed to start all over. Hopefully Tuska will return back to the original date.

The line-up looked once again – amazing. Megadeth and Ministry and of course the Swedish war trad metallers were headliners, but Lamb Of God had to pull out of Tuska because of the arrest of the frontman in Republic Czechia and was replaced by Finntroll and Animals As Leaders had to cancel as the band managed to miss the flight. Of course a few cult metal bands like Saint Vitus, A.R.G. could be witnessed. The festival was an utter success although the event wasn’t sold out. All in all 26,000 people visited Tuska during three days.

Metal-Rules.com was present to check out a lot of bands and enjoy the sun and rain.

EXODUS Featuring Guitarist RICK HUNOLT: Slovenia Performance Video Clip

June 16th, 2012

Video footage of EXODUS’ June 13 performance at KC Mostovna in Nova Gorica, Slovenia can be seen below (filmed and edited by Jaka Curlic of JZA Crew).

EXODUS inaugurated its summer festival season with a performance on June 2 at the Scion Rock Fest in Tampa, Florida. With Gary Holt still handling guitar duties for Jeff Hanneman on SLAYER’s North American and European tour, EXODUS invited out none other than former bandmember Rick Hunolt to fill in for Scion and other shows.

Longtime EXODUS fans will recall that Hunolt — the other half of the famed EXODUS “H-Team” who is on every studio recording from 1985 through 2004 and co-wrote some of the band’s best-known songs such as “A Lesson In Violence” and “Deliver Us To Evil” — left EXODUS after the band’s highly-acclaimed 2004 reunion album, “Tempo Of The Damned”. “Murder In The Front Row”, the recent photo book documenting the pinnacle of the Bay Area thrash scene, aptly documents Hunolt’s tenure in the band.

Following his departure, Hunolt was replaced by HEATHEN guitarist Lee Altus.

Hunolt previously rejoined his former bandmates at a special concert in celebration of Holt and Lisa Perticone’s wedding on September 24, 2011 at Avalon in Santa Clara, California. He also performed with them at “Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance”, a special concert which marked the 10-year anniversary of former EXODUS singer Paul Baloff’s passing. The event took place February 4 at the Oakland Metro Operahouse in Oakland, California.

Holt has confirmed that he will be joining his EXODUS bandmates for their Graspop Metal Meeting performance in Desel, Belgium on June 23 for a special lesson in violence with a three-guitar attack!

Jeff Hanneman sits out – Gary Holt in to tour with Slayer

May 1st, 2012

According to the official Slayer site :

Slayer fans everywhere – it’s time to let you know what is going on with our brother Jeff Hanneman.

As you know, Jeff was bitten by a spider more than a year ago, but what you may not have known was that for a couple of days after he went to the ER, things were touch-and-go. There was talk that he might have to have his arm amputated, and we didn’t know if he was going to pull through at all. He was in a medically-induced coma for a few days and had several operations to remove the dead and dying tissue from his arm. So, understand, he was in really, really bad shape. It’s been about a year since he got out of the hospital, and since then, he had to learn to walk again, he’s had several painful skin grafts, he’s been in rehab doing exercises to regain the strength in his arm; but best of all, he’s been playing guitar. We were all excited when he joined us onstage for the encore a year ago at The Big Four show at Coachella. Since then, we’ve given him all the time and support he’s needed to continue his rehab so he can come back to the band fully recovered and able to deliver the kind of shows we all want him to. While Jeff’s been doing some writing and has been coming to rehearsal over the past several weeks, he has decided he needs to take more time to continue his rehab. While we want him back onstage with the band, all of us support his decision. So, we’re very grateful that Gary Holt will continue to fill in for Jeff, and will tour with us until Jeff completes his rehab and is ready to return. How long will that be? The best and most honest answer we can give you is ‘as long as it takes.’ We also wanted you to know that we’ve been doing some writing and recording for the next Slayer album – we’ve tracked a few songs, and will finish the album when we’re off the road later this year. Gary will join us on tour in Europe and the UK in May and June, and then we’ll all see you on this Summer’s Mayhem Festival.

“BONDED BY BALOFF” ON-TRACK TO BE A SOLD-OUT EVENT

January 30th, 2012
“Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance”

“Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance”

For those who were either born too late or living in the wrong part of the world while music which has now become legendary was exploding from the Bay Area’s thrash metal scene in the early-to-mid 1980s, here’s your second chance to re-live history.

With a very special All Ages show marking the 10-year anniversary of former EXODUS singer Paul “Pavel” Baloff’s passing, “Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance” will take place at the Oakland Metro Operahouse on Saturday, February 4th, 2012 and features the evening’s headliners EXODUS plus POSSESSED, FORBIDDEN, HEATHEN, and MAD AT SAM on the Main Stage.  Playing the Second Stage are ANGERHEAD, MUDFACE, THE VENTING MACHINE, HELLFIRE, and HYSTERIA.

The evening is well on its way to being a SOLD-OUT event and may very well turn into the second installment of the recent Bazillion Points book Murder in the Front Row (which can be purchased here), so don’t miss out!

Of the event, EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt has previously stated:

“[We] knew it was high time we do something special to remember the legend of Paul Baloff, so we decided to put together a show the Bay Area will not soon forget.  There are some nice surprises in store as well!  It will be ten years and two days since the thrash world lost one of its greatest frontmen ever, and we will always make sure his memory lives on and is never forgotten. Long live The Destroyer!”

Advanced tickets for “Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance” can be purchased at this location.

EXODUS & FORBIDDEN MEMBERS COMMENT ON UPCOMING TRIBUTE TO PAUL BALOFF

January 13th, 2012
“Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance”

“Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance”

EXODUS and FORBIDDEN are just two of the bands from the now infamous Bay Area thrash metal scene who will be performing at the special show marking the 10-year anniversary of former EXODUS singer Paul “Pavel” Baloff’s passing. “Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance” will take place Saturday, February 4th, 2012 at the Oakland Metro Operahouse.

States guitarist Gary Holt of EXODUS:

“With February 2nd being the 10 year anniversary of Paul’s passing, the band knew it was high time we do something special to remember the legend of Paul Baloff, so we decided to put together a show the Bay Area will not soon forget. We’ve pulled some of the Bay’s finest for this, bands who knew and shared many a stage and drink with Pavel.  There are some nice surprises in store as well!  It will be ten years and two days since the thrash world lost one of its greatest frontmen ever, and we will always make sure his memory lives on and is never forgotten. Long live The Destroyer!”

FORBIDDEN guitarist & founding member Craig Locicero adds:

“Everyone in FORBIDDEN is honored to have been asked by Gary and EXODUS to play this show marking the 10th anniversary of Paul Baloff’s crazy fucking life!  I witnessed his insanity first-hand at the Mabouhay Gardens and Ruthie’s Inn.  As EXODUS got bigger, Paul got crazier – in a good way.  It was genius at work.  He was the mold that all thrash frontmen cut themselves from, but he was also a pretty damn sweet guy.  Always kind to those he liked, he’d be in the front row at FORBIDDEN gigs screaming things like ‘Why does it have to be so heavy?’ and my favorite, ‘Heavier than time!’  I’m laughing just typing this!

“At his memorial, I saw people I hadn’t seen in years. So much love, so many laughs. It made me happy in some strange way just to see that kind of respect displayed for Paul.  We all really loved him.  Luckily his legend has returned with a vengeance… and hey, Paul, you did it: You’ve become heavier than time!”

The Main Stage line-up for “Bonded By Baloff: A Decade Of Remembrance” includes: EXODUS, POSSESSED, FORBIDDEN, HEATHEN, and MAD AT SAM.

Playing the Second Stage are: ANGERHEAD, MUDFACE, THE VENTING MACHINE, HELLFIRE, and HYSTERIA.

Advanced tickets can be purchased at this location.

EXODUS to play at Sweden Rock Festival 2012!

December 8th, 2011

If you ask metal fans who the originators of the Bay Area thrash metal scene are, most people will not just say, but shout out ”Exodus!”. The band was formed in 1980 – with a certain Kirk Hammett in the line-up – but the debut album ”Bonded by blood” didn’t see the light of day until 1985. The album is now widely considered to be one of the best and most important albums of thrash metal history – and not to forget one of the most aggressive ones. Several killer releases followed – the commersially successful ”Fabulous disaster” (1988) to name one – before Exodus folded in 1993. 2004 saw thrash fans positively shocked when the band released the brilliant comeback album ”Tempo of the damned”, and since then another three hard-hitting albums have been unleashed. Original members Gary Holt (guitar) and Tom Hunting (drums) are today joined by Jack Gibson (bass), Lee Altus (guitar) and Rob Dukes, the brutal heir to Exodus’ legendary past frontmen Paul Baloff (1960-2002) and Steve Souza.

Tickets are available at our website: www.swedenrock.com. There you can also find more information about ticket prices and accommodation.

Around 70 bands will perform on our 5 stages next summer. The following bands have been confirmed so far:

MÖTLEY CRÜE
LYNYRD SKYNYRD

BLUE ÖYSTER CULT

DIMMU BORGIR
SYMPHONY X
EDGUY
GAMMA RAY
DANKO JONES
EXODUS
ELECTRIC BOYS
SLADE
TYGERS OF PAN TANG
GIRLSCHOOL

PENTAGRAM
SAINT VITUS
BONAFIDE
HELL
SACRED REICH
GRAVEYARD

NATIONALTEATERN

Welcome to Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg, 6-7-8-9 June 2012!

SLAYER – Dave Lombardo

April 8th, 2011

SLAYER – Interview with Drummer Dave Lombardo

Interview by Arto Lehtinen and Marko Syrjala

Slayer-promo-photo.jpg

 

Slayer has been in the frontlines of thrash metal and extreme metal for nearly four decades. Several classic songs such as Hell Awaits, Raining Blood, South Of Heaven, Dead Skin Mask, Cult etc are immortal and present a well oiled metallic war machine pushing forward relentlessly and show the brutality of thrash metal. However, the thrash metal machine needs a powerful inexhaustible source of intense drumming to create the well-known Slayer tempo. Dave Lombardo is definitely at the core of the unique sounds of Slayer. Despise his absence from Slayer, his role in the world of Slayer has become, and still is, an important part of Slayer. Metal-Rules.com had the great pleasure to have a moment with Dave Lombardo.

SLAYER AND ROB ZOMBIE TO BRING HELL ON EARTH TO NORTH AMERICA; The Two Metal Icons Will Together for the First Time in More than a Decade

March 28th, 2011
Slayer - North American Tour With Rob Zombie and Exodus

Slayer - North American Tour With Rob Zombie and Exodus

LOS ANGELES, CA – MONDAY, March 28, 2011 — Get ready for hell on earth, because for the first time since they tour together on Ozzfest 1999, Rob Zombie and Slayer are teaming up to hit the road, bringing a glorious purgatory to fans in 12 North American cities. The co-headline trek kicks off Wednesday, July 20 at the Sovereign Center in Reading, PA.  Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 1 at 10:00AM local time.  Tickets for all shows are available at the venues’ box office, and via the online outlets as listed below.

“We haven’t toured with Zombie since Ozzfest 1999, so you can expect no less than ‘hell on earth,'” said Slayer’s Kerry King.  “Total sonic annihilation and a visual bludgeoning.  Bring your own body bag…”

“Total destruction on stage and off is what this combination promises,” states Zombie, “Seriously, how much more Hell could you ask for? The answer is none more Hell.”

Both Zombie and Slayer will present their full headline sets at every show, and both bands will close shows over the course of the tour.  San Francisco’s thrash-metal band Exodus has been confirmed to open all shows.

Slayer has been performing its classic 1990 Seasons In the Abyss album in its entirety over the past several months, but will instead draw from its entire 30-year catalogue for this tour’s setlist.

Never one to play it safe, Zombie will be bringing his legendary stage show out in full force. Audiences can expect an exploding non-stop barrage of sin, sex and Satan guaranteed to rip your face off. This a true rock and roll spectacle at its finest.

Rob Zombie: With more than 15 million albums sold, seven Grammy nominations, the helming of five major motion pictures (including the #1 record-breaking “Halloween”) and dozens of music videos under his belt, Zombie is truly a force to be reckoned with in today’s entertainment landscape.  For over 25 years his unique meld of horror and hard rock has influenced his sound as a musician, and more recently, his vision as a director and writer.  After the tour, Zombie will be starting production on his sixth feature film, “The Lords of Salem,” with the producers of the Paranormal Activity franchise.

Slayer: The Chicago Tribune‘s Greg Kot wrote that the  four-time-nominated, two-time Grammy winning Slayer is “one of the great American rock bands of the last 30 years, forget about genre.”  Indeed, few bands come close to matching the intensity that Slayer brings to its live shows, having been named “Best Live Band” by numerous media outlets including RevolverSPIN, and Metal Hammer.  With songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society – God’s terrifying global genocide, the chaos of our broken political system, chemical warfare, the hideous minds of serial killers, and the way-too-close proximity of world horrors that technology has brought us, Slayer remains crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the Mainstream.

Dates for the Slayer and Rob Zombie tour are as follows:

JULY
20    Sovereign Center, Reading, PA – ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster locations
22    DTE Amphitheatre, Detroit, MI – ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster locations
23    Stage AE, Pittsburgh, PA – ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster locations
