From the northern parts of Sweden comes the power metal kings, Persuader. The band is back to attack after a long break. Their previous album WHEN EDEN BURNS came out in 2006 and they are now back with a vengeance with the brand new opus THE FICTION MAZE. I was blown away by THE FICTION MAZE and urge everyone who is a fan of well played, edgy power metal to check out the album. Persuader makes me glad to be Swedish! I had the luck to have a chat with guitarist Emil Norberg and drummer Efraim Juntunen where we talked about the brand new album, what the band has been up to in between releases, as well as what the guys think the future has in store for Persuader. Enjoy!

The fourth PERSUADER album “The Fiction Maze” will be released in Europe on January 17th and in North America on January 21st through Inner Wound Recordings. Avalon/Marquee will release the album in Japan on December 25th.

”The Fiction Maze” is another step forward for PERSUADER as they constantly continue to develop their sound, song-writing skills and performance. Persuader describes the sound: “A lot of hard work was put into creating the perfect mix of everything we’ve done so far. We’ve expanded on the Persuader sound while keeping true to the core that is the band; heavy riffing, strong melodies, pounding rhythms and soaring vocals.”

Dark Empire – Guitarist Matt Moliti

Dark Empire: Guitarist Matt Moliti

Interview by EvilG & Lord of the Wasteland

Matt Moliti’s Dark Empire offers a mix of power, prog, and thrash elements with a lot of shred and powerful vocals on their debut album DISTANT TIDES. Most of you will not recognize Matt’s name…yet. With the amount of talent he possesses he could very well have a bright future in metal. Matt, who’s been playing guitar since he was 13, attended the Berklee College of Music where his guitar teacher was none other than Joe Stump. The name from Dark Empire that many will recognize is vocalist Jens Carlsson of Persuader and Savage Circus. Rounding out the line-up is bassist Noah Martin (Lilitu) and Teemu Tahkanen (DIG). In the following interview we talk to Matt about how the band works, his guitar playing, and his future plans for Dark Empire.

Pekka Kiviaho - Persuader guitarist

If you checked out the CD reviews for August 2000, you’ll know that I was VERY impressed with Persuader. So much so, that I hunted down guitarist Pekka and got the scoop on the band. If there is one new up and coming band from Sweden to keep your eyes on then this is THE band. Fans of heavy power metal will not regret checking this band out!
