Amon Amarth

Amon Amarth

Swedish Vikings Amon Amarth returned to the shores of Britannia the first Friday of November in the year of 2016. Having finished plundering and burning all relevant villages and settlements about a millennium earlier, the Swedes arrived that day with gifts rather than trouble: gifts in the form of a behemoth of a metal show, including old school thrash from the New World, rocking heavy metal from their homeland, and a good dose of hard hitting melodic death metal centered around themselves. This was of course Amon Amarth’s stop at the Roundhouse in London, as part of their headlining tour promoting Jomsviking together with Testament and Grand Magus. An eager London audience greeted all bands with what was probably more enthusiasm than the villagers of the isle a millennium earlier, when they saw the armada of longboats approaching their shores.

Enslaved & Grand Magus @ O2 Islington Academy, London

Enslaved & Grand Magus

@ O2 Islington, London

24th August, 2015

Review by Caitlin Smith

On the tin it seems like an odd mix. Enslaved and Grand Magus hitting the road together for a co-headline tour may not have made the most obvious pairing, but while the two may differ in genre, they’re more than a match for each other when it comes to energy. Taking to the O2 Islington academy in London for the night its sure to be a killer performance.

Behemoth @ The Forum

After battling against the London rush hour and being squashed up against the window of the Northern Line Tube it was time to head return the London Forum to get an early week fix of metal in the form of Behemoth.

GRAND MAGUS: Cover Artwork for “The Hunt” Released

March 28th, 2012

JB commented:

Arik Roper is a super-talented artist and we’ve had the pleasure of working with him before when he did the cover art for our album Iron Will. This time around with the overall feel and lyrical themes of our new album The Hunt, Arik was the perfect choice once again. We basically just gave him the title and he created one of the most haunting and suggestive images ever seen. He totally nailed what the album is all about. To say we are pleased is a gigantic understatement! This piece of art will stand the test of time and become classic.”

The Hunt will be released May 25, 2012 (Europe) and June 5, 2012 (North America) via Nuclear Blast.

Jalometalli 2011 – Oulu Finland

September 20th, 2011



Here we are again… The mighty Jalometalli Open Air Metal festival strikes back once again with a killer line-up to maintain its metallic lofty status on the Finnish festival map. The festival is known for relying on an old school metal approach offering traditional metal to extreme metal. The festival offered a great deal of bands from the classic metal to the extreme black metal. The festival had also paid attention to young rising and local bands which had been placed to play at the small third sage. That was unique and thankfully most of the bands sounded killer. The Metal Rules team hit the ground of Oulu to testify several absolutely killer bands. The whole Jalometalli as a festival is so unique and one of kind that anyone reading this article should take a glance at the offering of the festival. Here is a brief article on the fest.
