JALOMETALLI Open Air Metal Festival In Finland – Marco Järvenpää

July 11th, 2007

Interview by Arto Lehtinen

Europe has tons of great metal festivals arranged almost in every country during the summer time. Of course bigger festivals such Graspop, SwedenRock, Wacken, FullForce, Gods Of Metal, Hellfest, MetalCamp and tons of others definitely draw bigger names and more attention. However there are a lot of smaller metal festival arranged as well. These smaller more underground oriented festivals are arranged with the passion and devotion toward the metal music despite the budgets of these festivals ain’t tremendous huge.

Jalometalli is a relative new, but damn activate and vital metal festival arranged up in the north in Oulu. The festival has grown piece by piece every year and booked more and more wellknown bands. Jalometalli definitely hit the jackpot by managing to book the legendary Bay Area thrashers Testament and of course another, but European thrash legends Kreator. However Jalometalli offers more legends such Unleashed, Candlemass and the mighty Holy Moses. What the one can wish from one metal small festival, doom metal, thrash metal, death metal. Of course Finnish metal bands play an important role giving the last shape to the line-up of the festival.

As for the tickets, well they can be ordered from the Finnish Ticket Service, Check out this link

The primusmotor and chief of the Jalometalli festival Marco Järvenpää is more thrilled about the line up of the  Jalometalli festival 2007. Therefore it would be about time and to give an opportunity to the chief to enlighten more about the festival.

Onslaught – Legendary British Thrashers

November 3rd, 2006

Sy Keeler – The vocalist of Onslaught

Interview & live pictures by Luxi Lahtinen

Thanks to Duke for the transcription 


"I am so excited and can’t wait for everyone to hear the finished album. Thrash Metal will never be the same again. It’s time for Slayer to step aside. Our lyrical content is ugly and ‘will’ upset people. The music is so fucking brutal. Is that the same band who recorded IN SEARCH OF SANITY? A mix of POWER FROM HELL and THE FORCE, dragged screaming and thrashing into the 21st century. You have been warned!"Sy Keeler on 25th of July 2006

Hmmm…. such brave words from such a bravely talking guy. wanted to find out how much Sy?s announcement held water by testifying the band?s live appearance at the precious Jalometalli Festival in Oulu, Finland on August 18th. The band not only played a well-chosen cavalcade of old Onslaught classic songs at Jalometalli, but also threw a couple of new songs off from their forth-coming 4th album, titled KILLING PEACE (due to out in February 2007 on Candlelight Records) as teasers. According to these new songs they played for their Finnish fans, "Destroyer of the World" and the album?s title track "Killing Peace", it can somewhat fully be subscribed the time has come for Slayer to step aside – not matter how good Slayer?s latest album CHRIST ILLUSION was. KILLING PEACE will contain 9 new songs full of hard, heavy and fast Thrash Metal without any kind of compromises, the way we ?old timers? still remember Onslaught when Sy was screaming his lungs out in the classic Onslaught line-up.

Sy talks about the new album in this very interview for – and just about much more…

ONSLAUGHT – Steve Grice

October 11th, 2005


Onslaught wasone of the first UK thrash/death outfits to unleash three mind blowing thrash metal outputs in the 80?s. The band?s second effort THE FORCE is considered their greatest album featuring the legendary Sy Keeler on the vocals. However due to several reasons Onslaught reached its final peak in the early 90?s when several other 80?s thrashers disappeared and split up at that time. In 2005 the reformation of Onslaught came out of blue to several old school thrash metal worshippers when the legendary UK thrashers from Bristol announced that they would perform some gigs and start working on new material. Therefore it was a ?must? to have an interview with the band?s drummer Steve Grice to find out more about the reformation and of course about the historical background of the band.
