SWEDENROCK 2017

July 9th, 2017

SWEDENROCK 2017

Once again, the Finnish Metal-Rules.com two-man-team made their annual road trip to Sweden Rock.  The 2017 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock as usual. Over 70 bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees during the four-day festival. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past twenty years, always being sold out as it was again this year. However, it took a bit longer until all the tickets were gone this year. It has become quite logical for us to give an in-depth report on several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. It was an enormous pleasure to testify Scorpions, Venom, Ratt, Warlock, Running Wild, and a whole lot more.  Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully, you will have a pleasant reading experience… Stay hard, True As Steel.

Primal Fear To Release ‘Angels of Mercy – Live in Germany’ CD/DVD & Blu-Ray

April 6th, 2017

The German metal legends Primal Fear are returning with a vengeance on June 2, 2017 with a brand new live album/home video, entitled “Angels of Mercy – Live in Germany” on Frontiers Music Srl!
2016 was a very busy year for PRIMAL FEAR. Following the release of their latest killer studio album, “Rulebreaker” in January, the metal warriors embarked on a world tour which shattered all the previously held records for shows played in one year by the band.
“We started in Europe with 11 countries and recorded the concert in Stuttgart for the album and video, which is Primal Fear’s first Blu-Ray release. We continued in the USA and Canada, Japan and for the first time, Australia. Then we played some wonderful festivals in the summer, continued touring in 10 countries in South and Latin America and ended the year with more shows in Europe. It was a fantastic experience for the band and we want to thank every single fan who joined us on this great journey!” says bassist and co-founding member Mat Sinner.
Vocalist and co-founding member Ralf Scheepers adds: “With a handy cam in my suitcase, I have recorded on multiple occasions many behind the scenes shots and funny, candid moments. We recorded an entire show right at the beginning of this fantastic world tour and it gives you an insight to the Primal Fear live experience on stage. You will find a lot of bonus material such as video clips and different additional surprises, so we can easily say that we are very proud to deliver this package to you…please enjoy and do us a favor: CRANK IT UP!”
The last tour unleashed the best Primal Fear performances since the band formed in 1998 – a consistently great mix of power, ambition, and enthusiasm filtered through the talent of these insanely great players! There is undoubtedly magnificent performances on this release, with great sound and video quality. This live album offers a barrage of metal anthems in their full glory that will please any headbanger! If you are a metal fan you, then you must see this in all it’s power and glory!

Primal Fear and Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody – Ruling Montreal & Toronto

Primal Fear and Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody

Primal Fear and Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody

Review by EvilG

A couple of additional pics taken by EvilG 

Every time Primal Fear tours North America, I travel and attend. They are after all, one of my favorite bands. On our shores, they commonly tour by themselves and rely upon local openers. This time however, things are different as we get treated to a co-headlining tour featuring Primal Fear and Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody. Rhapsody doesn’t tour over this way quite as often as Primal Fear, so they were high on my bucket list of bands to see and have been since I first heard them in the late 90’s. A match this amazing doesn’t happen that often, so we decided to see the show two times. It was interesting to witness the same show in two very different Canadian cities to see the different reactions from the audience.

The story of the track is about a guy and how he went through all ups and downs in his life. He is growing stronger through every task and each disappointment he went through. The time for him has come to take his personal little revenge upon those people who gave him hell… You’ll always meet twice in life!”

Primal Fear guitarist Tom Naumann

To all Primal Fear and Aquiles Priester FANS around the world! We knew it would be a hard mission for us, but we’ve given it a try and unfortunately, to combine our present obligations and our future endeavors, it has become impossible to have a cohesive band together. Due to our schedules and the distance between the continents we have decided to part ways. From both sides we do not have any regrets at all and we are very happy that we have tried our best to make it happen. We are all still good friends and we wish all the best for each other in the future.

Mat, Ralf, Aquiles, Tom and Alex.

Summer Breeze 2014 – Dinkelsbuhl, Germany

November 3rd, 2014

10155478_10152363244231675_4589414538560517701_n

Metal, beer and bratwurst are the unholy alliance at German metal festivals. Those festivals are those things that every banger has to experiment once in lifetime. Even though festivals are packed by those obvious and quaranteed bands on the bill, but missing the true metal feeling is something. Summer Breeze has grown tremendously and gained the monumental status amongst several other metal festivals in Germany. The main headliner of this year was without any doubts Machine Head. The Summer Breeze festival is the well organized metal festival in Southern Germany. Even though most of bands appeal to the metal public, but some strange German acts such as JBO were on the bill. However, Summer Breeze was a great success, despite the horrible weather. Here is the brief article of the fest.
