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.

EVIL DRIVE RELEASES THE LAND OF THE DEAD on January 22
 
Finnish melodic death metal-band EVIL DRIVE with the amazing Viktoria in front, presents ‘The Land of The Dead’! Evil Drive is founded 2013 in Kotka, Finland. The band was originally formed because the aim was to set up a band which has not previously been heard. All the musicians in the band, have a history in a number of different bands and different genres. The band has incorporated many different musical styles, leading press and fans to label them as melodic death metal with a twist of 80’s style thrash metal. But in fact Evil Drive’s sound is therefore the combination of all of its member’s musical history. Evil Drive was originally started by vocalist Viktoria Viren, her husband and guitarist Ville Wiren and drummer Juha Beck. Guitarist Niko Huusari joined bands ranks soon later with the original bassist Jussi Mäkinen who was replaced by Marko Syrjälä in June of 2014. All band members are huge metal fans and they share the same taste in music. Some common favorites are Iron Maiden, Metallica and Slayer. In November 2013, they released their self-titled debut EP, which got a lot of attention in Finnish media. At the same time they released their first official music video “Bullet”, which soon became a hit in YouTube. The band filmed video for “The Land of the Dead” in the summer of 2014 it was followed by “War” in September of 2015. In August of 2015 it was announced that Evil Drive signed a worldwide record deal with Danish label Mighty Music.
