W.A.S.P. – Live at House of Culture, Helsinki, October 9th 2015

October 12th, 2015



October 9’th 2015
House of Culture, Helsinki FINLAND


W.A.S.P. received their first gold album from Finland (LAST COMMAND, 1985), and since then their popularity has remained stable here. The band are regular visitors to Finland, and have played here annually over the last ten years. W.A.S.P. released their fifteenth studio album, GOLGOTHA, just a few days ago, and now the band is on a four gig tour in Finland. Maybe four gigs, at this time, is too much because House of Culture was not sold out. There were an estimated 600-700 people, which is only about half of the venue’s capacity.

Primal Fear parts ways with drummer Randy Black

August 12th, 2014
Randy Black

Randy Black

Official statement from the band:
“Due to irreconcilable differences between singer Ralf Scheepers and drummer Randy Black, Primal Fear announce that Randy will leave the band effective August 16th, 2014 – one day after the band’s performance @ the Summer Breeze Festival, Randy’s final show with the band. Primal Fear will announce their new drummer in September. We wish Randy all the best in his future career! “

Ralf Scheepers:
“For all of you out there who are wondering now about the reasons why Randy has left the band: We’ve agreed to keep the reasons private! Decisions are made and have to be accepted! It’s as sad as it is but Randy and I have agreed on having respect to each other and there will be NO dirty laundry! If we can’t work together as pro’s anymore, we still can go separate ways like pro’s! So please show some respect to Randy’s decision, to him as a person, the bands future and me as a person.

Thank you!

Mat Sinner:
“Bang! One part of me can understand Randy’s decision, the one part not. But after 11 years together in a band, sharing buses, stages & hotels, through good & bad times, this is a sad moment – good luck Randy! I accept what is, let go of what was, have faith in what will be!”

ANNIHILATOR – Vocalist Dave Padden

November 22nd, 2010


Interview with vocalist Dave Padden


Long time Canadian thrash metal icons, Annihilator, are known for being the soul and mind of the guitar wizard Jeff Waters who has navigated the band throughout the years. However, the guitarist/vocalist Dave Padden has become an essential part of the Annihilator camp within these past seven – eight years. Annihilator has visited Finland a couple of times before as a support for Judas Priest in 1991 and Trivium a few years back. It was clearly time for them to have the headliner slot here. The Tavastia club was entirely packed when Waters and company got on the stage. Before the four piece thrashers stormed onto the stage to wake the fury, we had the privilege of having a chat with the vocalist of Annihilator Dave Padden who talked about the on-going tour, the re-issued albums, and several other interesting issues about the mighty Annihilator!

Canadian thrash band Annihilator is the lifework of guitarist Jeff Waters, who founded the band in Vancouver in 1984. It took almost five years and numerous line up changes before band released their 1989 debut, ALICE IN HELL, which was an unqualified triumph and epitomized the state of the art in terms of thinking man’s thrash metal in every aspect. Album was a success but more changes followed. Original singer Randy Rampage decided to leave and he was then replaced by Coburn Pharr who recorded album NEVER NEVERLAND with the band. Album was again very successful and band did a lot of touring across the world with such names as Judas Priest. Third album SET THE WORLD ON FIRE was released in 1993 with Wayne Darley being the only remaining member alongside with Jeff Waters himself. That album was a way different compared to older albums, it was much more oriented into pop/rock but it still did quite well during the time when grunge invasion was about to come. In 1994 band lost their record contract and they broke up but it wasn’t too long when Annihilator resurfaced with another line up. Band released a series of albums: KING OF THE KILL, REFRESH THE DEMON and REMAINS where Jeff handled vocal duties by himself while but Annihilator never again enjoyed anything similar to their original success � despite Water’s’ retreat to thrashier terrain. In 1999 band did another attempt to re-find their glory days when they re-united with their original singer Randy Rampage. Band released album CRITERIA FOR A BLACK WIDOW but reunion didn’t last too long until Randy was out again because of his drug and alcohol problems. It was time of another singer and then Joe Comeau stepped in. Annihilator released two high quality albums CARNIVAL DIABLOS and WAKING THE FURY with Joe before he was surprisingly out after the release of live album DOUBLE LIVE ANNILIATION in 2003. Canadian native Dave Padden replaced Comeau and he�s been in the band since then. Annihilator has lived though many ups and downs in their career but what�s most important, band has always survived and now they�re once again back with their 12�Th studio release called �Metal�. Band visited in Finland, for the first time in sixteen years, on last April while they were on tour as a special guest for U.S band. I had an opportunity to sit down with Jeff Waters in Helsinki before their show in House of Culture and here are the results of our lengthy discussion� ENJOY!
