Tuska Open Air 2014 – Helsinki Finland

Tuska-Festival-2014-605x557

The Tuska Open Air Festival is definitely a real metal festival institution amongst all other metal festivals in Europe. This Sivulahti area almost located in the heart of Helsinki, only a few kilometers away from the downtown of Helsinki, is a perfect place for the metallic onslaught during the weekend. The line-up of 2014 looked once again amazing. Anthrax and of course the legion of the Norwegian (former) black metal artists such as Satyricon, both Emperor and Dimmu Borgir as headliners. Of course a few cult metal bands like Metal Church, Stone could be witnessed. The festival was an utter success although the event wasn’t sold out. All in all 24000 people visited Tuska during three days.

Metal-Rules.com was present to check out a lot of bands and enjoy the sun and rain.

ARSON ANTHEM SET TO RELEASE FIRST FULL-LENGTH LP ON OCTOBER 12TH, STREAMING NOW!

October 7th, 2010

HOUSECORE RECORDS act ARSON ANTHEM and MySpace Music are currently streaming the band’s entire upcoming October 12th release, Insecurity Notoriety, right now! Head over to the MySpace Music main page to be directed to the stream: http://www.myspace.com/music.

ARSON ANTHEM is comprised of metal greats Philip H. Anselmo (Pantera, Down, Superjoint Ritual), Hank Williams III (Superjoint Ritual, Assjack), Mike IX Williams (Outlaw Order, Eyehategod), and Collin Yeo (Ponykiller). The band was brought together in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, with Mike Williams moving into Anselmo’s spare apartment after his home and possessions were destroyed. Through this connection, Williams and Anselmo spent time listening to Anselmo’s irreplaceable hardcore music collection. The members relived the days of early 80’s hardcore bands, such as Discharge, Negative Approach, Sheer Terror, and many others. It didn’t take long for the music to squash their cabin fever, and inspire them to create a new venture that is now ARSON ANTHEM. Anselmo knew of the underrated, yet unbridled percussion skills that he and William’s mutual friend Hank Williams III possessed, causing the contact to be made and the band to come together. Finally, bassist Collin Yeo was recruited, and the sound was born. “All we had to do was meet and jam,” states Anselmo. “Fucking perfect, fucking real, fuck all.”

Phil Anselmo on the “ramifi-fucking-cations” of the BP Oil Disaster

July 21st, 2010
Phil Anselmo

Phil Anselmo

Invisible Oranges recently caught up with the former Pantera vocalist. Below is is awesome rant about the BP Oil Disaster. Read the complete interview here.

How is New Orleans doing now with the oil spill?

Anselmo: We ain’t seen the fuckin’ beginning of the repercussion. I think the tip is fuckin’ rearin’ its head, but how can it not? There’s fucking crude spilling out right as we speak here on this motherfuckin’ phone. What can I do about it? What can anybody really do about it? Go to the fuckin’ water and clean animals and birds? It’s not solving the fucking problem.

This right here, this knife in Mother Earth is [a] bleeding fucking wound in our planet, which in my book is God, by all rights. You got God stabbed in the fuckin’ heart. And it’s bleeding. We have not even begun to see the miserable ramifi-fucking-cations of this fucking particular disaster yet. Shit, hurricane season hasn’t really even moved in.

As a matter of fact, by the time the next year rolls around, everything on the Gulf Coast – not just New Orleans, but the entire… it’s not even a tri-state area; you lump Texas and everything into this fuckin’ thing, anything that can be affected by this Gulf – and you blow in fuckin’ oil all over the motherfuckin’ every standing structure… let a big hurricane roll through and blow oil all over every tree, house, car, fuckin’ animal, oh my god – and let it dry up for a fuckin’ week. Then flick a fuckin’ cigarette out. See what happens, with fuckin’ oil all over the place. This place will be torched faster than a motherfuckin’ box of matches, man, and gasoline.

Philip Anselmo of Housceore Records, Down, Pantera, etc.

March 31st, 2010

Philip Anselmo of Housceore Records, Down, Pantera, etc.



Interview by Shawn Jam Hill


It was with great trepidation that I picked up the phone at 5:30 PM EST on Wednesday, March 10 2010 because I knew the (supposedly) mercurial Mr. Philip Anselmo himself was on the other end of the line. After spending years fronting one of metal’s greatest bands of all time (Pantera), starting up the lumbering behemoth know as Down, feuding with his Pantera bandmates, losing his best friend Dimebag Darrell to a crazed gun-toting nut in 2004 and subsequently being denied access to the funeral while generally leading a rock and roll lifestyle that famously nearly killed the man, maybe Philip wasn’t too keen on jawing with some nobody journalist way up in Canaduh.

I was wrong.

Speaking thoughtfully (some would say quite slowly) and seemingly choosing his words very carefully, Philip Anselmo spoke as would a true Southern gentleman. He told stories, rambled on a little here and there and even had a laugh or two during our 35 minutes on the horn that was (theoretically) set up to promote upcoming releases on his own Housecore Records imprint. In reality, it was a good old fashioned chin-wag.

Down – Live in Helsinki, Finland

April 6th, 2008

Ls113.gif

DOWN : The House of Culture

The 21st of March 2007

Helsinki Finland

Down’s second visit to Finland has been a long time coming since their triumphant debut club gig that happened a few years ago in Tampere. That gig was sold quickly leaving several people outside the club without tickets. That gig has been described as one hell of the most memorable, remarkable, and intense club gigs witnessed for years. Therefore, having two gigs on the current touring schedule was more than obvious to meet the demand of the Down fans.
