SWEDENROCK 2017

Once again, the Finnish Metal-Rules.com two-man-team made their annual road trip to Sweden Rock.  The 2017 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock as usual. Over 70 bands offered one hell of an experience for the attendees during the four-day festival. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past twenty years, always being sold out as it was again this year. However, it took a bit longer until all the tickets were gone this year. It has become quite logical for us to give an in-depth report on several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. It was an enormous pleasure to testify Scorpions, Venom, Ratt, Warlock, Running Wild, and a whole lot more.  Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully, you will have a pleasant reading experience… Stay hard, True As Steel.

INTERVIEW AND LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

U.S. icons Ratt are back. The band has gone through many major changes in recent years. After many different steps, turns, lineup changes, and public drama, things are finally solved and the band is back to stay. The current line-up has three original members: vocalist Stephen Pearcy, guitarist Warren De Martini, and bassist Juan Croucier. The band is complemented by longtime guitarist Carlos Cavazo and drummer Jimmy DeGrasso, who joined Ratt this spring. The band is currently on tour, and now it’s time to find out what they want to do in the future. There has been a talk of a possible new Ratt album and many other things. I met the bassist, Juan Croucier, in June in Sweden Rock. We discussed the band’s plans, the state of new album, Juan’s solo career, and also his early days with Dokken. Read on!

INTERVIEW AND LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

TRANSCRPTION BY MARKO, PATRICK CLEMENT, EVILG and RICK

XYZ is a U.S based hard rock band formed in late 80’s. The original members were Terry Ilous (vocals), Bobby Pieper (guitars), Pat Fontaine (bass) and Joey Pafumi (drums). The band released its self titled debut in 1989 which included the band’s hit singles "Inside Out" and "What Keeps Me Loving You" which both got airplay on MTV and other Medias outlets at that time. The band’s sophomore album HUNGRY was released in 1991 but unfortunately it failed to reach its predecessor’s success and some changes followed. Tony Burnett and Joey Shapiro replaced Pieper and Pafumi and the band then carried on touring until they split some time later in 1992. Since then the band has done some brief reunions with various incarnations and there was an album LETTER TO GOD released in 2003. Another XYZ reunion took its place in Rocklahoma 2009 and since then the band has been doing shows sporadically with a line-up which now consist of original members Terry Ilous and Patrick Fontaine along with longtime members Joey Shapiro and guitarist Tony Marcus. XYZ came to appear in Stockholm’s Rockout -festival last May and here are the results of our interesting conversation which includes various topics…
