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.

Nate Renaud – Founder – Calgary Metalfest

On September 14th, 2016 the biggest rendition of Calgary Metalfest (CMF) will be kicking off it’s fifth year and the line up has been catching international attention. The big deal this year is of course the final night of the festival where attendees will be treated to a “Historic Night of Canadian Metal” featuring Annihilator, Exciter (original 1985 line-up), Razor and Sacrifice, all sharing the same stage on September 17th, 2016. The preceding nights have killer draws as well with The Exalted Piledriver headlining Thursday September 15th at the Distortion Music Venue and Toxic Holocaust, the only international act on the bill, will be tearing apart Dickens Pub on Friday night. The rest of the bill is packed with a selection of local heavy hitters and new acts that the founder of the festival, Nate Renaud, thinks you should check out.

King Diamond – O2 Forum 2016

The King’s return to the UK after a seven year long absence at Bloodstock Open Air 2013 must have impressed a lot of metalheads, because now the band haunt London again for the first time in ten years, they are playing to a crowd that is over twice the size to the that back out the Electric Ballroom in 2006.

Band leader/singer Yiannis Papanikolaou- Diviner

diviner_3_promo_interview_2016

The Greek heavy metal act Diviner released their debut album FALLEN EMPIRES last year and since I thought the album was great I hooked up with one of the band’s leaders, singer Yiannis Papanikolaou, to learn a bit more about them. The band is jammed with experienced and skilled musicians like guitarist Thimios Krikos (Innerwish) and drummer Fragiskos Samoilis (Innerwish). Innerwish is one of the biggest metal acts from Greece and Yiannis was also a member of that band before joining Diviner. Besides Diviner this busy man also leads and fronts the Dio cover act Rock N Roll Children, whom we discussed during our interview. To learn more about Greek heavy metal lean back and enjoy…

Review by Ann Sulaiman

31 years since the release of debut album “Bonded by Blood” and Bay Area legends Exodus hit the road with a European and UK tour to mark the occasion.

Exodus

Carrying Lost Society and Striker in tow, they paid a visit to The Underworld in London (admittedly one of their favourite spots to play, according to frontman Steve “Zetro”) for what was to be a consistently crazy night of crowdsurfing and moshing for all to enjoy.

It is not too often that the 2500+ capacity MacEwan Hall gets completely sold out for Metal shows, but Slayer, who have performed at this same venue a few times before, managed to do just that on their most recent stop in Calgary, Alta. Slayer is riding high on what many people are saying is their best album in years (REPENTLESS [Nuclear Blast, 2015]) and the legions of Metal were out in force! Managing crowds and traffic flow is a complicated endeavor at the best of times and it was a bit of a struggle on Monday night.

Wolf

Interview with guitarist Simon Johansson and drummer Richard Holmgren

18th October 2015
@ Limelight, Belfast

Just ahead of their co-headlining gig with fellow Swedes Enforcer in Belfast, we got the opportunity to chat with gregarious Wolf guitarist Simon Johansson and drummer Richard Holmgren, who revealed what it’s like being on the road for much of their twenty year history, why they love Bloodstock and what was behind the decision to use the ‘Wolf’ name to sell absinthe, ale and their special hot sauce.

The opening act of the night were WITCHES; a French death metal band from Antibes. Witches, formed in 1986 are first French band with female guttural voice. They have been touring with bands like SIX FEET UNDER and EMTOMBER and were a perfect act to open for this old Skool extreme metal night.
