OZZY OSBOURNE On BLACK SABBATH Reunion – “It’s In The Very Early Stages”

October 10th, 2011
Ozzy Osbourne Performs at Madison Square Garden - December 1, 2010

Ozzy Osbourne Performs at Madison Square Garden - December 1, 2010

Billboard.com’s Jillian Mapes reports:

Speculation surrounding a BLACK SABBATH reunion including OZZY OSBOURNE arose in August, when the Birmingham Mail reported that Sabbath guitarist TONY IOMMI said the original lineup was writing new material together. Iommi back-tracked on his official website, expressing disappointment that his statements – reportedly told in confidence – made waves. But he never actually denied the claims that the heavy metal gods were collaborating in some capacity.

Speaking with Billboard.com regarding his upcoming second book, Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy, Osbourne also touched on the swirling Sabbath reunion rumors.

“Yes, it’s a very, very strong possibility,” he says of getting the old band back together. “It’s in the very early stages, so we haven’t recorded anything yet. If it works out, it’ll work out. If it doesn’t, I’ll keep doing my thing.”

Throughout GOD BLESS OZZY OSBOURNE, audiences are given an inside look into the life of a rock star, from the good times to the bad.

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!!!

Ozzy Osbourne Cancels performance at Graspop Metal Meeting

June 25th, 2011

We regret to announce that OZZY OSBOURNE has been forced to cancel Saturday evening’s performance at Graspop Metal Meeting. Regretfully, Ozzy has severe laryngitis and his doctor has ordered an immediate 72 hours vocal rest before further evaluation.

 

Says Ozzy: “ I was so looking forward to performing at the legendary Graspop Metal Meeting. It really pains me to let people down and it is with great disappointment that I am unable to perform for the great fans of Belgium.”

We wish him all the best of course!

 

Obviously we need to reschedule the programme. Judas Priest will now headline on Saturday in a two-hour performance featuring a special laser show.

 

Fortunately Channel Zero, Belgium’s number one metal outfit, were more than willing to fill the vacant slot. This is the first time they’ll be playing the new album Feed ’Em With a Brick live.

 

With career album sales in excess of 100,000 copies, Channel Zero is easily Belgium’s biggest metal band. Last year, they made a triumphant comeback and with their new album finished they are ready for more. Feed ‘Em With a Brick is brutal, vicious and full of power. The album is rooted in metal history but the overall sound, the lyrics and the sheer energy oozing from every track are very much 2011. Channel Zero 2011 AD is Channel Zero at its absolute best.

This is the new main stage schedule for Saturday 25 June:

 

JUDAS PRIEST: 22.50 / 01.00 – 130′ set

WHITESNAKE: 20.20 / 21.35 – 75′ set

CHANNEL ZERO: 18.15 / 19.15 – 60′ set

BLACK LABEL SOCIETY: 16.20 / 17.10 – 50′set

FIREWIND: 14.35 / 15.20 – 45′set

LACUNA COIL: 12.50 / 13.40 – 50′set

DIABLO BLVD: 11.30 / 12.10 – 40′set

Sauna Open Air festival 2011, Tampere, Finland (June 9-11)

June 12th, 2011

SOA banner 2011.jpg

 Sauna Open Air Festival 2011, 9th-11th June Tampere, Finland

Review by Luxi Lahtinen, live pictures by Luxi Lahtinen & Terhi Pihlaja


The 8th Sauna Open Air festival was celebrated in a very sunny and warm weather, unlike in some other years – and this year the festival also broke their own record, welcoming as many as 26,000 people within the three days.

The SOA festival has truly found an important place among the other Finnish summer festivals, concentrating mostly on old-school Heavy/Thrash Metal and Hard Rock bands – and turning the festival around for the past 3-4 years or so, by booking many internationally big names for the three-day Metal feasts; from Kiss to Megadeth to Dio to Whitesnake to Scorpions to Type O Negatíve – and the list goes on.

This year, the festival organizers had very special grins – wider than ever before, spread all over their faces – and for some very good reasons. Two of the biggest headliners, Ozzy Osbourne and Judas Priest, arrived at SOA for the first time, with bands like Saxon, Accept, Doro, Cavalera Conspiracy, Joey Belladonna and many others proving to be good company to them.

Read on – the following article is based on the seven most interesting and musically satisfying bands of this year’s festival from your truly point of view.

On May 31, music fans will have their first taste of re-issues from rock icon OZZY OSBOURNE’s catalog of work with the releases of two albums which form the cornerstone of Ozzy Osbourne’s career as a solo artist:   Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman (Epic Records/Legacy Recordings).  Long revered by rock fans around the world, these two albums created a template for hard rock in the 1980′s and beyond as they were marked by the ground-breaking and  historic union of Ozzy and the late guitar hero Randy Rhoads.  These definitive versions of 1980′s Blizzard of Ozz (with previously unreleased bonus tracks) and 1981′s Diary of a Madman are available individually on vinyl or CD, or together in a deluxe collector’s box.  All versions were restored and remastered from the original analog sources by George Marino.

The 30th Anniversary Edition of Blizzard of Ozz CD includes the original album in its entirety, restored and remastered for this edition, with bonus tracks, while the new Legacy Edition of Diary of a Madman includes the original album in its entirety, restored and remastered for this edition, with a bonus second CD of previously unreleased live performances featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Randy Rhoads with rhythm section Rudy Sarzo (bass) and Tommy Aldridge (drums).  A single disc version of the remastered Diary of a Madman will also be available.

For serious fans and collectors, the limited edition 30th Anniversary deluxe boxed set houses the restored and remastered vinyl and CD editions of Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman, the “Ozzy Live” compact disc.  Beyond the music, the box set is highlighted by a variety of exclusives including an expansive 100-page coffee table book, a two-sided wall-size poster, a precise and detailed full-size replica of Ozzy’s iconic gold cross that he has worn for 30 years, and “Thirty Years After The Blizzard” DVD.

This new “Thirty Years After The Blizzard” DVD chronicles Ozzy’s years with Randy Rhoads features previously unseen footage of Ozzy and Randy filmed in 1981 & 1982; it incorporates rare archival photos and films; along with new and revelatory interviews with Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Lemmy (Motörhead), Steve Vai, Nikki Sixx, Rob Halford, Zakk Wylde, Bill Ward and more. The DVD also contains over 70 minutes of additional rare live performances and interviews; included is the premiere of more than 30 minutes of newly-discovered never-bootlegged footage of Ozzy and Randy from the Blizzard of Ozz tour shot from the front of the stage at New York’s fabled Palladium on May 2, 1981.  This new feature is a must-see for aficionados of Ozzy’s epic release, Blizzard of Ozz and its pivotal effect on rock & roll history.
