Bloodstock Open Air 2016 @ Catton Hall, Derbyshire

August 30th, 2016

Bloodstock Open Air 2016

@Catton Hall, Derbyshire

11th – 14th August 2016

Review by Demitri Levantis

Photography and Additional Reviews by Graham Hilling

Derbyshire is probably the last place you’d expect to find metal. It’s not one of England’s most famous counties, nor has it built up a reputation for a place of art and culture. But within the south of this quaint midlands county, some of the country’s finest music promoters are at work building the county’s reputation as a haven for metalheads.

Nightwish, Sonata Arctica, Delain: Calgary AB Mar 5, 2016

I have not seen the 2500+ capacity MacEwan Hall sold out for a Metal show in a long, long time. Not even for bands that also pull in the more mainstream crowds like Blind Guardian and Gwar. But Nightwish did it!  At their second concert in Calgary in over 20 years, the place was packed for an extra-ordinary bill of Euro-Metal. Delain and Sonata Arctica have also been through Calgary before and the crowds were out in force to see the triple stacked show. I’m not surprised Nightwish is riding a career high with a triumphant North American tour with their new signer as they just recently won the award for Best Metal album in their homeland of Finland.

PEAVY WAGNER – Refuge and Rage

June 28th, 2015

Refuge

Peavy Wagner

INTERVIEW BY MARKO SYRJALA

Peavy Wagner is a German heavy metal musician who is best known as the lead singer and bassist of the band Rage which he founded in 1984. The band is an important part of the German metal / power metal scene along with names such as Helloween, Running Wild and Blind Guardian. Rage enjoyed great success in the years 1988-1993 when the band released their best-known albums: SECRETS IN WEIRD WORLD, TRAPPED! and THE MISSING LINK. The line-up of this classic era Rage consisted of Peavy, guitarist Manni Schmidt, and drummer Chris Efthimiadis. Schmidt left the Rage in 1994, and Efthimiadis left in 1999, but that did not stop the band from continuing. The guitarist Victor Smolski joined the band in 1999 and drummer Andre Hilgers replaced Mike Terrana in 2007. This lineup released four studio albums until Smolski and Hilgers left the band in February 2015. Around the same time, Peavy contacted Schmidt and Efthimiadis and they decided to start playing together once again under the name of Refuge. Wagner also announced that despite the dissolution of Rage in February, the band would continue with new members that will be announced in late June. Sounds more than a bit complicated, does not it? I met Peavy at the Sweden Rock Festival in early June, and we discussed Refuge, the recent line-up changes in Rage and the future of the two bands.

Within Silence: Guitarist and founder Richard Germanus

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

Thanks to Emil Westerdahl at Ulterium Records for setting up the interview and for the promo pictures of the band. Additional promotional photos taken by: YD Photography, Shorty Profo.sk, 3Media Prodction

Interview_within_silence_band_01_2015

Within Silence is a new power metal band from Slovakia led by guitarist and founder Richard Germanus. I had the pleasure to have a chat with Richard and I thought it was suitable to dig into the past of the band and also talk about their debut album GALLERY OF LIFE. That album was just released in Europe and the USA in May of this year. If you’re into bands like Sonata Arctica, Stratovarious, Hammerfall and Gamma Ray, then I’m pretty sure you’re going to like what you hear when you push play on GALLERY OF LIFE.
