Review by Michael de los Muertos
Pictures and Commentary by Ice Maiden

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with arena shows. While I’ve seen some excellent concerts in large venues, like most metalheads the intimate feeling of a small club is vastly preferable in many ways. Unfortunately when your town is suffering a drought of metal club shows as Portland has been for the last several months, you tend to look upon arena shows as the last bastion of the scene. Local clubs and promoters may not have the balls to put money on the line to bring an underground metal band to town, but the big concert promoters still smell a buck or two on the wind with the big-name acts like Pantera…right?

HELLFEST 2013

July 17th, 2013

Hellfest Festival 2013

@ Clisson, France

21st- 23rd June 2013

Review by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs
Photography by Tess Donohoe  Hellfest

It may be some people’s epitome of hell, Michael Buble fans I’m looking at you, but for the metal/rock community Hellfest’s towering gateway looks positively pearly. This year’s line-up is so jam-packed that I was looking for the little glass jars and labels. You’d make a fortune if you could bottle any number of the diverse scope of bands on the bill, with the riffs left in natch, but I’d like them to play their sets first.

Once inside that gateway the layout is much the same as last year, and that isn’t meant in a well-they-clearly-couldn’t-be-arsed sense, because Hellfest could teach most others a thing or 20 on how to put together a fan-friendly festival. Except when it comes to the number of toilets on site that is.

Whilst the Hellfest tree still dominates in its stark simplicity, the hidden beer gardens have gained a snazzy gateway of their own, which invites you into the woodlands. Instead of a fairytale monster at the end of the path though, you’ll find a winebar, which is win-win really. And at night the scrap-metal merch stands and bars still glow with their own rooftop fires.

Stage-wise we’ve got Main Stage 1 and 2, which continue their staggered times so that as one plays, the other sets up, and vice versa. The result is no waiting around for soundchecks or bands to start, just back-to-back bam-bam-bam metal. A similar set-up is in place at the Altar and the Temple, where you can find black metal, death metal and the like, then there’s the Valley which is home to the stoner and doom types, and the Warzone where the punk and hardcore drops.

Hellfest 2013 – it’s like being welcomed home.

Kreator Morbid Angel Nile and Fueled By Fire : Nosturi Helsinki Finland

December 15th, 2012

The 7th Of December 2012

Nosturi Helsinki

Finland

When the co-tour package consisting of Kreator, Morbid Angel, Nile and the young thrash guns Fueled By Fire was announced, it wasn’t any shock as the tickets were sold out. Generally, these kinds of packages definitely pull hundreds of people to shows, resulting a number of sold out gigs. The whole Nosturi club was entirely packed and full when about 600 metal freaks crawled to testify these four bands in action. The night was a real dream come true for all the fans to witness these leading names on the metal map on the same night and the whole gig was a worth every cent for sure. Sweating raging pits were rolling all night long and the Metal-Rules.com was at present for obvious reasons.

Morbid Angel and Grave: The Trocadero, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania September 28, 2012

October 21st, 2012

Morbid Angel and Grave

The Trocadero, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

September 28, 2012

Review and pics by  Infamousbutcher


Morbid Angel is one of the most legendary and influential death metal bands of all time, and that reputation is enforced when you see their power and musicianship live. This Fall, in support of last year’s ILLUD DIVINUM INSANUS they are doing their first US tour with their classic era vocalist / bassist David Vincent since 1996! There are many young fans that have only seen Morbid Angel with Steve Tucker at the helm, so this will be an awesome evil experience for them! Support for the tour is being provided by Sweden’s Grave, who is promoting their new album AN ENDLESS PROCESSION OF SOULS. Two of my favorite death metal bands on the same bill, fucking killer!

WARFATHER: Ex-Morbid Angel Member Steve Tucker Forms New Death Metal Unit

May 14th, 2012

Greyhaze Records is proud to announce the formation and signing of brand new death metal act WARFATHER, a devastating new unit conceived by ex-Morbid Angel gladiator Steve Tucker!

 

In a statement on what metal fans are to expect from WARFATHER, Tucker stated: “This is my new band; it will be my main focus…. it is my kind of death metal.” Having been known for his vocal and bass skills in all of his previous acts, while still holding down vocal duties here, Tucker has moved on to guitar with this project. “I have always played the guitar and I think now is the time for me to make the move. I think doing solos and extra guitar parts will allow me to express myself in a whole new way!” Also on guitars is Armatura, formerly of Cincinnati-based death metal band Dominion. Recruited to the drum kit is Deimos, a death metal veteran currently playing in the band Temple and also having played with bands such as Severe Torture. The bass is dispatched by Nick McMaster (Krallice, Nader Sadek, Castevet). Additional guitar contributions will be tracked by friends of WARFATHER, which include many notable death metal stalwarts; full details will be announced shortly.

 

WARFATHER are currently in the final stages of tracking the yet-to-be-titled album, with mixing to take place immediately after. Tucker himself is producing the entire release, as he did for the 2011-released Nader Sadek album In the Flesh, which Tucker also performed on. The artwork is in the final stages as well, and will be unveiled shortly, along with the details on the album, which is being slated for release this Fall. Upon its’ release, WARFATHER will take their battle to the highways of the planet on tour in support of the album.

 

After starting out as vocalist/bassist for death/thrash act Ceremony, Steve Tucker moved on to handle bass and vocals on Morbid Angel’s infamous Formulas Fatal to the Flesh, Gateways to Annihilation and Heretic LPs. In 2009 Tucker was recruited to take part in the Nader Sadek album In the Flesh for release through then brand new label Greyhaze Records, and licensed to Season of Mist Records. The project also featured Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy), Rune Eriksen (Mayhem, Ava Inferi) and more. During this time Tucker struck up a great relationship with Greyhaze Records, and together they decided to bring the reality of WARFATHER to fruition.

ABOUT: Spread The Metal Fest was inspired by STM Records owner Matt Day, whom previously worked for HSF as a volunteer and decided it was time to give back to the community and help an organization and cause that promotes awareness of heart disease along with financial support.

About: Spread the Metal Records is an artist-oriented label. They recognize the commitment of all those who have signed with them and those who continue to support them in other ways. A label is only as strong as its artists, and indeed the job of the record label is to create an environment where they can pursue their artistic vision. That means giving straight answers, holding themselves accountable, taking responsibility for their mistakes, and recognizing their own limitations. STM believes in every release that they put out and they have more respect for the fans than to expose them to a sub-par album. STM demands the best from themselves, and so they can’t accept any less from the bands that they represent.

Tuesday evening in Islington, London and it’s pretty cold outside and due to trains running at 5mph on the track and an extremely early opening time I find myself running to the O2 Islington Academy to try and get there before the first band of the night finish their set!

Tuska Open Air 2011 – Suvilahti Helsinki Finland

August 27th, 2011

Tuska11_665x200.jpg

Tuska Open Air 2011

Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland

July 22-24, 2011



Review by Arto Lehtinen, Petri Seppänen Da Costa

Pics by Arto Lehtinen, Sini Huotari

The Tuska Open Air Festival has become one kind of institution amongst all metal festivals in Europe. Tuska was previously arranged in the heart of Helsinki in the central park Kaisaniemi during the past 10 years. The park underwent construction to have a better environment and other mandatory improvements. The organization of Tuska didn’t have a choice but to find and switch the whole festival to a new area. This new area is still located in Helsinki, but only a few kilometers away, to a place called Suvilahti. Having this area was definitely a big part of the whole idea and concept of Tuska. The Kaisaniemi park brought an intimate picnic and park feeling with the grass and trees. Whereas Suvilahti was more like an industrial environment with the burning and redhot asphalt under the feet.

Another thing forcing Tuska to make a change was the date. Originally the festival was supposed to be in 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. However, the line-up looked amazing after all. Morbid Angel and Amon Amarth were headliners, so was Devin Townsend once again. Cult metal bands like Hell, Bulldozer and then something type of stuff such as Jex Thoth, Church Of Misery. The festival was an utter success although the event wasn’t sold out. All in all 28000 people visited Tuska during three days.

Metal-Rules.com was present to check out a lot of bands and check out the new Tuska area.

SWEDENROCK 2011

August 1st, 2011

swedenrock2011.jpg

 

Let Me Hear You Scream Sweden Rockkkk.Well the annual roadtrip to Swedenrock by the Finnish Metal Rules.com team is already into it’s 11th year!  The  2011 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock in the line-up. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide and the ticket price had risen a little bit. ver these 11 years of coverage, it has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article of several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The  weather once again showed positive and negative aspects like in 2010. It either rained or was windy with a little sunshine. But we were there for bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Enjoy or die!!!
