Legendary Swedish sleaze/glam icon Bosse Stagman, better known as Zinny J Zan, recently released his first solo album in Swedish. The album contains music that’s nothing like he’s done before and is more of a pure rock album. Since Zinny and his music are a long time personal favorite of mine, I decided to hook up with him in order to have an in-depth talk about the new album and find out what’s behind the sudden change of musical direction. He’s backed up my some really well known musicians like bass player Nalle Påhlsson (Therion, Treat,Zan Clan etc.), guitarist Martin Sweet (CrashDiet, Sweet Creatures), and guitarist Simon Roxx Karlsson (re-united Easy Action), so the outcome sounds pretty great if you ask me. I know that the fact the album is entirely in Swedish might scare some fans, but believe me, the music of Stagman on ARE YOU STILL OUT THERE is universal.

Shotgun is the name of the new outfit of what was the legendary Swedish band Shotgun Messiah. The band have played a few shows in Sweden since 2013 and now the band is back with original singer Zinny Zan and drummer Stixx along with new members – guitar player Rob Marcello & bass player Chris Laney – that completes the line-up. Now, 3 years later the guys release a live album called “LIVE – DOWN DECADENCIA DRIVE”. The live material is taken from the Gothenburg show they did back in 2013. Personally, I think it’s a little late to release a live album now when the band was put to rest in 2014. I hooked up with singer Zinny J Zan to talk about the new live album and about why original members Tim Tim and Harry K Cody were not on board this time and why the band did so few shows.

SKOGSROJET Festival 2013 featuring Twisted Sister, Helloween, Lita Ford, Lordi etc…

August 6th, 2013

Skogsrojet

Skogsrojet

REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

 Skogsrojet is one of these newer hard rock / metal festivals organized in the promised land of festivals, Sweden. The two day event is held in the outlying village of Rejmyre and the nearest town is Norrkoping about 40 kilometers away. The festival was held for the first time in 2006 and it has been increasing steadily year by year. Last years line-up included Alice Cooper, Doro, Testament and L.A. Guns and now the fans were treated to Twisted Sister, Helloween, Pretty Maids and Lita Ford. As you can see from the list of names, the event organizers rely heavily on traditional hard rock spiced with a few heavier acts. I don’t know if this kind of concept would work anywhere else, but in Sweden, but it works. This year, the festival again gathered thousands of participants who were eager to rock hard!!!
