SWEDENROCK 2011

Let Me Hear You Scream Sweden Rockkkk.Well the annual roadtrip to Swedenrock by the Finnish Metal Rules.com team is already into it’s 11th year!  The  2011 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock in the line-up. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past ten years as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t any exception as the fest was sold out despite the lousy economic situation worldwide and the ticket price had risen a little bit. ver these 11 years of coverage, it has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article of several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The  weather once again showed positive and negative aspects like in 2010. It either rained or was windy with a little sunshine. But we were there for bands, not for having some beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Enjoy or die!!!

MILJENKO (MILI) MATIJEVIC

INTERVIEW BY MARKO SYRJALA AND PATRICK CLEMENT

American hard rock band Steelheart was originally formed in 1990 and are best known for their high octave-spanning vocalist Milijenko (Mili) Matijevic and platinum seller debut album STEELHEART which included such hit singles as “I’ll Never Let You Go” and “Can’t Stop Me Lovin’ You”. The sophomore album TANGLED IN VEINS followed in 1992 and it included another major hit “Mama Don’t You Cry”. Unfortunately things stopped dramatically when, during the concert, Mili was struck in the head by a lighting truss which knocked him to the ground face first and injuring his head, jaw, nose, and spine. The band broke up and it took several years for Mili to recover from the accident. The third album WAIT was released in 2000 and the following year Mili was invited to join in a project called ROCKSTAR – THE MOVIE. ROCKSTAR became a big success. The film told the story about a music fan who gets to become the singer for his favorite band loosely based on the Ripp/Priest story). Mike wasn’t acting on the film but he did most of the lead vocal parts for that “fictitious band” called Steel Dragon while the rest of the band included such names as Zakk Wylde on guitar, Jeff Pilson on bass and Jason Bonham on drums. In 2008 Steelheart did another re-union and released a new album called GOOD 2B ALIVE. Since then the band has been more or less active doing touring and preparing to hit back for a big time. Original guitarist Chris Risola returned to the bands ranks in late 2008 and the rest of the band includes bassist Rev Jones (ex-MSG) and drummer Mike Humbert who already played in GOOD 2B ALIVE. Steelheart. In early June of 2001, Mili and the boys arrived to perform in Swedenrock Festival and in there we had the pleasure to sit down with Mr. Milijevic and hear all the latest news from the Steelheart camp. It seems that Steelheart is back to stay!!

STEELHEART TO PLAY AT SWEDEN ROCK 2011

March 9th, 2011

Do you recall the wonder singer who dubbed Mark Wahlberg’s vocal parts in the movie “Rock Star” (2001)? Thats right – Miljenko Matijevic, the Croatian-American main man of Steelheart from Connecticut. The band was acclaimed as one of the finest in early 90s’ hair metal. The two first albums “Steelheart” (1990) and “Tangled in Reins” (1992) overflow with classics like “Angel Eyes”, “Steelheart” and the killer ballad “She’s Gone”. Steelheart dissolved in 1992 after Miljenko getting severely injured on stage by a falling lighting rig. An attempted comeback in 1996 proved abortive, but ten years later Miljenko revived Steelheart for real and released the Led Zeppelin-influenced “Good 2B Alive” in 2008. Now the band makes their Swedish debut – beware of glass-shattering high notes when Miljenko opens his mouth!
