SWEDENROCK 2017

July 9th, 2017

SWEDENROCK 2017

Once again, the Finnish Metal-Rules.com two-man-team made their annual road trip to Sweden Rock.  The 2017 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock as usual. Over 70 bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees during the four-day festival. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past twenty years, always being sold out as it was again this year. However, it took a bit longer until all the tickets were gone this year. It has become quite logical for us to give an in-depth report on several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. It was an enormous pleasure to testify Scorpions, Venom, Ratt, Warlock, Running Wild, and a whole lot more.  Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully, you will have a pleasant reading experience… Stay hard, True As Steel.

AIRBOURNE Premiere Motörhead Tribute Video

February 28th, 2017

AIRBOURNE have revealed a rip-roaring video for “It’s All For Rock N’ Roll,” the climactic track on their current studio album, Breakin’ Outta Hell – their first for Spinefarm Records.

“It’s All For Rock N’ Roll” was written about Lemmy, a man the band looked up to, befriended and loved, having shared stages with Motörhead on numerous occasions over their decade-plus career, both in Europe and Australia. When they needed someone to drive a large truck (recklessly, of course) in their “Runnin’ Wild” video (2007), Lemmy was the first name on the list, and he duly obliged with a memorable, authority-baitin’ cameo.

Motörhead’s famous “bomber” lighting rig, a noted part of ‘Head history since the late ’70s, was enthusiastically lent to Airbourne by the Motörhead camp, adding real emotional weight to both the “It’s All For Rock N’ Roll” clip and the song itself – an anthemic number recorded to honour one of rock’s most revered and influential figures, and also to celebrate the hard rock genre as a whole, the loyalty and the legacy.

“When Motörhead played, Lemmy was there for the fans and the fans were there for him. It didn’t matter what was happening in the world at that point, because Motörhead was onstage; the crew had everything dialled in, and the crowd were there and lovin’ it – all for rock n’ roll,” said Airbourne frontman Joel O’Keeffe. “Whenever we were on tour, we looked forward to seeing the festival posters with the big Motörhead logo on there, and now there’s just a big black hole. ‘We are Motörhead, and we play rock ‘n’ roll,’ we were so used to hearing that, and when it’s not there anymore, it hits you hard. Lemmy meant so much to us, and so much to rock ‘n’ roll itself…”

Airbourne will play at the Download Festival this June, taking to the main stage for the first time.

Mikkey Dee of Motorhead fame has PERMANENTLY joined Scorpions

September 13th, 2016
Mikkey Dee

Mikkey Dee

According to the official announcement on Scorpions’ website:

“We would like to thank James for so many years of lasting participation in the band and personal friendship. We understand and respect his need for time as he makes his way through the final stages of his healing process. After our incredibly successful shows in the US, Europe and Asia, we are sure to have found a fantastic drummer with Mikkey Dee. He brings a fresh energy to the band and we look forward to the exciting time together that lies ahead.”

Mikkey has been playing with Scorpions since April 2016, when James Kottak, their drummer since the 1990s, took a break on medical advice.

Mikkey stated:

“I feel truly honoured and fortunate to be able to carry on playing drums on this level. I grew up listening to Scorpions and have always loved the band. We have been friends for a long time so traveling and performing this year with Klaus, Rudolf, Matthias and Pawel has been loads of fun and the crew is very professional. The Scorpions fans have been most welcoming and it’s been great to meet all the crazy wonderful Motörhead bangers along the way.

I had some close to 25 amazing years with my friends and brothers Lemmy and Phil in Motörhead and that will always be the backbone in my future drumming. Lemmy always had great respect for Scorpions for being a real rock band and I am sure he is proud up there that I moved on and for playing with this class act. Here’s to many more years of rock and roll.”

NEW LEMMY TRIBUTE RECORD FEATURES MEMBERS OF WOLF, DENATA AND SEANCE

September 10th, 2016

Swedish paleontology professor and heavy metal aficionado Mats E. Eriksson named a fossil worm, Kalloprion Kilmisteri, in honor of Lemmy Kilmister in 2006. Now — ten years later — the fossil has come to brutal sonic life with assistance from prolific Swedish metal musicians, notably members of WOLF, DENATA and SEANCE, deciphering the “paleo metal” music “Silurian Overkill”.

Motörhead’s ‘Clean Your Clock’ Out Now

June 20th, 2016

332144-emp

They were the Kings of the Road. They lived on it. They loved it and the fans loved them!

Never was the spirit of Motörhead more alive than when they were on tour, shake, rattle and rolling audiences to within an inch of their lives thanks to that indomitable cocktail of power, purpose and head-crunching volume.  In fact, after four decades of bone-pulverizing duty, Motörhead were still enjoying sold-out gigs worldwide.

On November 20th and 21st 2015, at the Zenith in Munich, Germany, UDR Records made the decision to record  – what happened to be the very last live shows ever recorded  – and Motörhead proceeded to deliver two storming sold out shows.  Where there had once been almost too-fast breakneck pace, there was measured yet still thunderous rock’n’roll served up only as they could, Phil Campbell playing better and better, and Mikkey Dee elevating the art of drumming to the superlative heights which made him one of metal’s most coveted skinsmen.

Lemmy.
He sounds so dialed in, a little mean even (in the best possible way) snarling here and there, cackling when appropriate, and singing in a way which will defy every single pre-conceived expectation you might have had.  Yes, he was fighting ailments.  But no, he was not flimsy or faded, in fact on Clean Your Clock he lays down the marker for all near-70 year olds in terms of wicked bad-assery.

Those first strains of the mighty “Bomber” are like a salve to all heavy metal souls, the reverberant classic forcing you to turn it up, Lemmy snarling and roaring. “Metropolis” grooving like the day it was written, and “Overkill” as mighty as ever…. And  here is the unavoidable truth.  There will be no more Motörhead tours because Lemmy is no longer here, and many, many people did not get a chance to hear them one more time on what proved to be their last-ever piece of road work.
Which makes Clean Your Clock a vitally important release.  It is both a celebration and an epitaph, glorious yet not without melancholy, maintaining the warmth and curve of Motörhead’s unique live sound.

Clean Your Clock is the natural sound of one of rock’n’roll’s mightiest, rarest and most astoundingly excellent beasts – Motörhead.  There isn’t a plaudit they haven’t received and there isn’t a plaudit they don’t deserve.  And if there had to be a ‘final’ Motörhead album, perhaps it is fitting that Clean Your Clock, a superb live encapsulation of the band at home, is the one.

So TURN-THIS-UP because as Lemmy himself said, the only way to feel the noise is when it’s good and loud… and remember Lemmy and Motörhead in the best possible way !!!

Tracklisting:
Bomber / Stay Clean / Metropolis / When The Sky Comes Looking For You / Over The Top / (Guitar Solo) The Chase Is Better Than The Catch / Lost Woman Blues/ Rock It / Orgasmatron / Doctor Rock / Just ‘Cos You Got The Power/ No Class/ Ace Of Spades/ Whorehouse Blues / Overkill

Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry Pay Tribute To Lemmy At The 2016 Grammys

February 16th, 2016

HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, the supergroup featuring international film star and musician Johnny Depp alongside Alice Cooper and AEROSMITH’s Joe Perry, paid tribute to late MOTÖRHEAD frontman Lemmy Kilmister by performing the MOTÖRHEAD classic “Ace Of Spades” last night (Monday, February 15) at the Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Dave Grohl introduced the VAMPIRES’ appearance by saying:

“Many of us play rock and roll, but very few of us are rock and roll. Lemmy Kilmister was rock and roll. He was a rebel and an outsider, one of a kind and a way of life. He was MOTÖRHEAD. He was a legend and I was proud to call him my friend. I have an ‘Ace Of Spades’ tattoo, but the truth is Lemmy and MOTÖRHEAD left their mark on me a long time ago, just as they did for everybody who’s ever loved rock and roll. As Lemmy taught us in ‘Ace Of Spades’, the pleasure is to play. So tonight, I wanna thank Lemmy and the late Phil ‘Philthy Animal’ Taylor for their music and everything it meant.”

DOUG SCARRAT

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Saxon, the legendary English heavy metal band, was founded in 1976. They are one of the pioneers of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and during the 80’s Saxon established themselves as one of Europe’s biggest metal acts. The band is still going strong and they tour on a regular basis. They have released 21 studio albums including their newest, BATTERING RAM, which came out in October 2015. The band arrived Finland on 6th of December along with Motörhead and Girlschool. I then sat down with the band’s long-term guitarist Doug Scarratt in Helsinki and we discussed many different topics such as touring with Motörhead and the new Saxon album.

Edit: It should be noted that when this interview took place, we had no idea what was going to happen for Lemmy in just a few weeks…  😥

Jack Daniels and Coke officially renamed to “The Lemmy” by Food & Beverage Magazine

January 12th, 2016
"The Lemmy"

“The Lemmy”

Following a petition by fans, Food & Beverage Magazine has officially re-named the industry standard call-out drink of Jack Daniels and Coke to “The Lemmy” in honor of the late Motörhead frontman.

As all Motorhead fans know, a JD and Coke was Lemmy’s favorite drink, which he could often be seen enjoying on the Sunset Strip at the Rainbow Bar and Grill.

Food & Beverage Magazine publisher Michael Politz states:

“We are honored to represent the industry and bring the moniker The Lemmy to every bar in the world! Owning a rock club with Anthrax’s Scott Ian and Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell gave me the chance to meet Lemmy and experience his legend myself.”

Motorhead

Motorhead

Just hours after the death of Lemmy Kilmister, Mikkey Dee confirmed the obvious in an interview with Sweden’s Expressen website saying:

Motorhead is over, of course. Lemmy was Motorhead. But the band will live on in the memories of many. We won’t be doing any more tours or anything. And there won’t be any more records. But the brand survives, and Lemmy lives on in the hearts of everyone. I’m incredibly grateful over the years we had, and that we had such a good time together.

Former MOTORHEAD Drummer, Phil Taylor passes away

November 12th, 2015
Rest In Peace Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor

Rest In Peace Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor

Former Motörhead drummer Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor passed away yesterday (November 11th), at 61 years of age. His former bandmate “Fast” Eddie Clarke broke the sad news via his official Facebook page.

Motörhead have since taken to social media with the following tribute: “Lil’ Philthy… he who once shouted ‘stop wincing about’ on an album… he who fueled many a young boy’s punk/metal hairstyles… he who played the drums with fury and intent… he who liked to call people ‘wazzocks’ once in a while… friend, Roman, Derbyshireman… rest in peace… with much love.”

“Fast” Eddie Clarke’s original message: “My dear friend and brother passed away last night. He had been ill for sometime but that does not make it any easier when the time finally comes. I have known Phil since he was 21 and he was one hell of a character. Fortunately we made some fantastic music together and I have many many fond memories of our time together. Rest in Peace, Phil!”

Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor played in Motörhead from 1975 to 1984, and from 1987 to 1992.
