Amon Amarth Calgary Oct 4, 2014

Amon Amarth

Deceiver of the Gods North American Tour 2014

October 4, 2014

Review and Photos by Monika Deviat

The Deceiver of Gods tour had finally made its way to Canada and on October 4, 2014 Amon Amarth stormed Flames Central in Calgary Alta., along with fellow Swedes Sabaton and Skeletonwitch from the U.S. The show was sold out and fans had lined up early before doors opened and the lineup, consisting of some peopled clad in Viking costumes, spanned a few blocks. Amon Amarth has played Calgary many times but it was their first time in the local hockey team’s themed venue. Calgary Flames symbols and paraphernalia decorate the venue. The room itself is decent for getting a view of the stage even if the venue is packed as it is multilevel. Merch tables were tucked away from the floor and had a constant line up of people buying some new items. The varying styles of bands worked well for this bill as each has developed quite a large following in Calgary.

Ohio’s Skeletonwitch were up first and the floor was already packed. The five pieces from Ohio launched right into a high energy and aggressive set. “More Cruel Than Weak” off their last release, Serpents Unleashed [Prosthetic Records, 2013], was the first song in the set and got the crowd moving right away. Vocalist Chance Garnette was stalking the stage menacingly and with the stage lights set up so high above the band, his eyes appeared to be ominous black pits. Guitarists Nate Garnette and Scott Hedrick delivered a skillful double les Paul attack. Skeletonwitch closed the set with “Within My Blood” and the audience was left thoroughly thrashed and ready for the next bands.

Smoke crept across the stage and the audience immediately began chanting “Sabaton!”. The band took the stage with big smiles and vocalist Joakim Brodén was bounding around the stage and lunging down to the audience’s level to make eye contact and throw some horns. The band was ready to entertain and the crowd was ready to party. Sabaton had made a great impression on Calgary in April 2014 and fans were singing along and jumping around with the band. When Brodén tried to get the audience to join in a rendition of YMCA there was little enthusiasm for it, so the band delivered a few more songs. Then Brodén brought out a guitar to have a riff/solo challenge with guitarist Chris Rörland and Thobbe Englund. Brodén was of course good naturedly showed up. He then pulled out a few bars of Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” and afterwards tentatively started singing “YMCA” and the crowd actually joined in fairly boisterously. Calgary had another fun night enjoying Sabaton’s music and stage antics.

By this time in the evening a large portion of attendees were inebriated and everyone was eagerly awaiting the Viking metallers to take the stage. There was already so much energy that when “Run to the Hills” played over the speakers during set change, everyone in the venue was singing along and some people even started crowd surfing. Amon Amarth opened with “Deceiver of the Gods” and hair started flying. Fans were singing along to choruses, headbanging, and the pit was kept consistently chaotic throughout the ninety minute set. After the second song “Runes Carved to My Memory”, frontman Johan Hegg customarily addressed the crowd under a single spotlight before thundering into “Death in Fire”. Other crowd favorites were “The Last Stand of Frej”, “Guardians of Asgaard”, and “Cry of the Blackbirds”.  The set was powerful and captivating this night. Non-stop crowd surfers had security working hard and diligently in the very small space allotted between the stage and barrier. Amon Amarth finished with “Twilight of the Thunder God” and “The Pursuit of Vikings” that had everyone roaring lyrics back to Hegg.

Overall it was a successful night for all the bands. Starting with the straight up intense brutality of Skeletonwtich, to Sabaton’s jovial set and Amon Amarth’s crushing ferocity, fans were left battered.

ICED EARTH Announce North American tour with SABATON and REVAMP!

ICED EARTH Announce North American tour with SABATON and REVAMP!

Phoenix Concert Theatre, Toronto, Canada
April 14th, 2014

by EvilG

It’s not often that a single concert has THREE touring bands on the bill that I all want to see. Typically, there’s the headliner, and local openers that can be hit or miss. However, for this tour we have the mighty Iced Earth with support from Sabaton, and Revamp featuring Floor Jansen of Nightwish. Their tour stop in Toronto on Monday April 14th, was a show worth making the 2000+ kilometre trek from the ends of the earth to Toronto to witness.

In the video interview the band members explain to “The Metal Voice” about the writing process of their new album “Heroes” which will be released May 16 2014.

Sabaton were also asked if they would ever consider doing a non-war themed album in the distant future, and they replied saying perhaps but if so, the lyrics would still have to be history based as they do not like writing fiction based songs

BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2013

September 1st, 2013

Bloodstock Open Air 2013

@ Catton Park, Derbyshire, UK

8th – 11th August 2013

Review by Anna Dumpe & Ben Spencer

Photography by Michelle Murphy


Imagine a weekend of nothing but pure heavy fucking metal.
Imagine being surrounded by the friendliest 15,000 people who share the same passion for heavy metal music and lifestyle. Imagine a place where it is respectable to have beer for breakfast and drinking until you drop in an accomplishment. Imagine a festival where you can see over 100 heavy metal bands and pretty much none of them suck.

Ladies and gents, this ain’t no heavy metal fairytale!

This is Bloodstock Open Air – the greatest heavy metal music festival of our times. It’s a place where metal heads run free, headbang until their heads roll off, shout ‘SLAYEEER!’ and avoid shower for 4 days straight.
It just does not get any better than this.

Our Metal-Rules.com UK team were privileged to attend Bloodstock Open Air 2013 and see things for themselves…here’s a ‘little’ insight of what went down.

SABATON – Did the Nazis win the battle of Stalingrad?

August 16th, 2013

From Sabaton:

sabaton_live_copenhell_2013_8We have been reached by the news that some organizations and political representatives who claims to have studied us has come to the conclusion that Sabaton are a nazi band, and because of that our scheduled appearance at the 70:th anniversary of the battle of Stalingrad should be cancelled.

This show is to take place in a few weeks in Volgograd.

Further, these people believe that we will desecrate the Russian flag during our concert (which we have never done and of course have no intention of doing) and they are now trying their best to ban Sabaton from all of Russia!!!

We know that the people of Russia is far more intelligent than this and thus we hope that reason will allow us to play this concert in honour of this historical event and the Sovjet soldiers who fought for their freedom.

Sabaton is and has always been a NON-POLITICAL and NON-RELIGIOUS band and holds a lot of respect to the veterans of war and the heroic and non-selfish acts that was performed in a time of need.

Ps. It should be noted that Sabaton has been awarded honorary membership of the “Scions of the 17:th Airborne Division”, an organization that consists of veterans from the very same airborne division who fought against the nazis in “The battle of the Bulge” and “Operation Varsity”.
