SABATON and Eluveitie @ The Forum

Sabaton and Eluveitie

@ HMV Forum, London

9th November 2012

Review by Rhiannon Marley

Photography by Michelle Murphy


Whether you think of Sabaton as pioneers of modern power metal or a bunch of self-confessed ‘Village People in combats’, the fact is, they’re bloody good fun. Flying high with 2012′s Carolus Rex after a renowned post-recording line-up change, the belligerent Swedes are hitting the HMV Forum tonight in force – and from what I’ve heard, in FLAMES…

ELUVEITIE Interview with Anna Murphy

August 27th, 2012

Eluveitie Interview

with Vocalist/Hurdy-Gurdy player Anna Murphy

http://eluveitie.ch/

Interview by Victoria Fenbane



Swiss melodic folk death metallers Eluveitie have been bringing us their unique sound for 10 years.  Early in 2012 they released the truly epic album ‘Helvetios’, in which their distinctive style of metal fused with traditional instruments was taken to new heights.  As if this wasn’t enough for avid fans, to celebrate their anniversary, Eluveitie have just released a 2-CD Digipak entitled  ‘The Early Years’, consisting of  an entirely re-recorded version of their first EP ‘Vên’ plus a completely re-mastered version of their debut album ‘Spirit’.

We had a chat with vocalist and hurdy-gurdy player Anna Murphy about her unusual choice of instrument, singing in dead languages and their upcoming comprehensive nine date tour of the UK and Ireland supporting Sabaton.

Tuska Open Air Metal Festival – Helsinki Finland June 27-29, 2012

July 28th, 2012

Tuska Open Air 2012

Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland

June 27-29, 2012

The Tuska Open Air Festival is definitely a real metal festival institution amongst all other metal festivals in Europe. This current area, Sivulahti, almost located in the heart of Helsinki, only a few kilometers away from the downtown, is a new home for Tuska for the second time. Suvilahti is more like an industrial environment with the burning and hot asphalt underfoot. When raining, at least the area won’t turn to one hell of a big mud fest.

Another thing forcing Tuska to make a change was the date. Originally the festival was supposed to be at the beginning of July, but another big more international based festival took over the date and Tuska was postponed until three weeks later. Well at least some people got pissed off at the changed date. Obviously a few band negotiations needed to start all over. Hopefully Tuska will return back to the original date.

The line-up looked once again – amazing. Megadeth and Ministry and of course the Swedish war trad metallers were headliners, but Lamb Of God had to pull out of Tuska because of the arrest of the frontman in Republic Czechia and was replaced by Finntroll and Animals As Leaders had to cancel as the band managed to miss the flight. Of course a few cult metal bands like Saint Vitus, A.R.G. could be witnessed. The festival was an utter success although the event wasn’t sold out. All in all 26,000 people visited Tuska during three days.

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

METAL HAMMER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS 2012

July 28th, 2012

METAL HAMMER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS 2012

Review by Hal Sinden

Photography by Ashlinn Nash



Despite its reputation for a tricky commute and arguably eyesore appearance (don’t confuse familiarity with satisfaction, fellow Londoners), the O2 Arena is a fantastic venue space for the Golden Gods and ample notice that metal is still as healthy as it ever was, showing no signs of bowing to austerity measures.

What would we do without this yearly event? 

Well, for a start we’d probably have healthier livers and better hearing in our later years, however many would also be deprived of their chance to postpone their Download hangovers or simply be given a reason to wash off this year’s festival mud and watch some of the scene’s glitterati forget about their day jobs for an evening.  Metal Hammer Magazine’s annual schmoozefest is upon us, and with it a dazzling array of leather, lip gloss & limp fringes.

To end all rumors that Sabaton will stop touring, or even act/perform as a band, we can now present that Sabaton’s new lineup will be as follows:

Joakim Brodén – Vocals
Pär Sundström – Bass
Chris Rörland – Guitars
Thobbe Englund – Guitars

At the moment we are still searching for a keyboard player. Until we have found the right guy we will still have Daniel Myhr with us, in digital form, since he has specially recorded all keyboards for us to use on tour.

SABATON Announce Major Line-Up Change

March 31st, 2012

Swedish metallers SABATON have confirmed the departure of guitarists Oskar Montelius and Rikard Sundén, drummer Daniel Mulback and keyboardist Daniel Mÿhr. Vocalist Joakim Bróden and bassist Pär Sundström will continue the band with new members which will be announced soon.

A statement from Sabaton as posted to their Facebook page reads as follows: “Starting a band at the age of 18 is simple, keeping it intact for 12 years is much harder, and finally we have come to the crossroad where we will go separate ways. Pär Sundström and Joakim Brodén will continue to battle on stage, carrying the banner of Sabaton to further victories. We will always have an eternal bond to each other, created by more than 12 years of friendship and touring, and wish each other long and prosperous lives with families, various projects and musical careers. In the end, all six of us will end up in our own glorious future…”

Commented the band: “For the first time ever we have had an expert to help us out with the theme, the well-known Swedish historian Bengt Liljegren. We have also added some extra time in the studio to find the absolute right sound on ‘Carolus Rex’, and our producer, Peter Tägtgren, says that this album will mark a brand new standard for how a heavy metal album should sound like!”

Liljegren’s previously published works include acclaimed biographies of Adolf Hitler and Karl XII. He also appeared in the popular Swedish TV series “Boston Tea Party”.

“Carolus Rex” track listing:

01. Dominium Maris Baltici

02. Lejonet Från Norden

03. Gott Mit Uns

04. En Livstid I Krig

10. Konungens Likfärd

11. Ruina Imperii

 

The album’s release will be followed by a two-year world tour.

SABATON will embark on a North American headlining tour in the spring. The “Swedish Empire Tour 2012″ will kick off on April 10 in Tampa, Florida.

SABATON bassist Pär Sundström was forced to sit out several shows on the Canadian leg of the band’s most recent North American tour due to a knee injury.

“World War Live: Battle Of The Baltic Sea”, the first-ever live album from SABATON, was released on August 5, 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records.
