Hell yeah! It’s time to enter the mighty Swedenrock Festival. A fantastic and the most enjoyable rock and metal festival on earth. It has to be pointed out that Metal Rules has covered Sweden Rock since 2001! Therefore, it is quite logical to cover the festival again. The 2014 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Approximately 80 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for attendees. Sweden Rock has been successful during the past decade as the festival has always been sold out. This year wasn’t an exception as the fest was sold out despite a lousy economic situation worldwide. It has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article on several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The weather was both rainy and sunny during these four days. The Metal-Rules.com team was there to witness the bands, not for some kinda beach party crap. Unfortunately, we are not able to cover every bloody band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading experience… Rock on!

Black Sabbath confirmed for Sweden Rock Festival 2014!

November 11th, 2013

sabb.jpg Rumours about this have run rampant the last few days, but now it is finally 100% confirmed: one of the biggest hard rock bands ever, and without question the most influential one, has been confirmed for Sweden Rock Festival – Black Sabbath!

Few are the subgenres of hard rock that don’t derive from Black Sabbath. The Birmingham behemoths changed the map of hard music for ever. Tony Iommi’s detuned, ultra-heavy riffs, Geezer Butler’s distorted, pulsating basslines, Bill Ward’s explosive drumming, Ozzy Osbourne’s unique, wailing vocals… The combination was totally unprecedented. In 1970-78 this lineup released eight albums, filled with dark and at times controversial classics. “Black sabbath”, “Paranoid”, “Iron man”, “Children of the grave” and many more.

After the original band broke up, Black Sabbath still kept creating stellar music, fronted by such legendary singers as Ronnie James Dio, Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes and Tony Martin. Still, the fans were obviously excited beyond belief when the classic line-up eventually reunited. And finally, in 2013, their comeback album “13” was released. The success actually surpassed everybody’s expectations – and at this point in time, we announce Black Sabbath as one of the main attractions of SRF 2014. Which will also be the only Swedish appearance that year for Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and drummer Tommy Clufetos.

 

Sweden Rock Festival will be held in Sölvesborg, southern Sweden, June 4-7 2014. Among the other acts announced so far are Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, W.A.S.P, Emperor, Magnum, Uriah Heep, Arch Enemy, Transatlantic and Monster Magnet. In total, 84 bands will be performing on 5 stages over 4 days.

Y&T to play at Sweden Rock 2014

October 25th, 2013

Y&Ts first concert in Sweden, at SRF 2003, remains one of the most lauded in the festival’s history. So what could be more appropriate than Y&T coming to SRF 2014 as part of their 40th anniversary celebrations? It was in 1974 that the band was formed by, among others, singer/guitarist Dave Meniketti. Their original monicker Yesterday & Today was abbreviated before the release of their third album “Earthshaker” (1981). This was in turn a milestone in hard rock, combining power and melody in equal measures. Efforts like “Black tiger” (1982), “Mean streak” (1983) and “In rock we trust” (1984) confirmed the band’s stature. In the 90s Y&T folded twice, and returned permanently in 2001. Sadly, bassist Phil Kennemore succumbed to cancer in 2011, but Dave Meniketti and cohorts found the strength to move on even after this devastating blow.

Article and pictures by Arto Lehtinen and Marko Syrjälä

“Welcome to the show” – welcomed by KISS  when headlining the second day of the Sweden Rock fest. Well, once again the Finnish Metal-Rules.com team made their annual roadtrip to Sweden Rock. Metal Rules has covered Swedenrock since 2001, therefore it is quite logical to cover the festival again. The 2013 line up presented a wide range of metal and hard rock. Over 70 metal and rock bands offered one hell of an experience for 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. It has become quite logical for us to give an in depth article on several bands performing at Sweden Rock to all the readers out there. The weather was tremendous during these four days. The Metal-Rules.com team was there witnessing 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… Rock on!

SWEDENROCK 2011

August 1st, 2011

swedenrock2011.jpg

 

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!!!

SWEDENROCK 6-9 June 2007

July 8th, 2007

Article and pics by Arto Lehtinen and Marko Syrjälä

(Addiotional comments by J. Huovila – Thanks)

Wow! This is the seventh time that the Finnish Metal-Rules squad made an invasion to the mighty Swedenrock festival. Almost 70 bands descended upon the southern area of Sweden for a festival that turned out to be an utter blast from the beginning to the end! The bill of Swedenrock festival 2007 covers a wide range of metal styles and even classic rock stuff such as Kreator to Black Oak Arkansas and everything between. Therefore, there was at least something for everyone who attended the festival. As usual, the whole festival was once again sold out with around 30,000 people at the area every day. The Swedenrock festival has always had tremendous luck with the weather every year. Once again the gods of weather had given their blessing for this rocking metallic heaven on the earth with an extreme hot and sunny weekend that burned red the skin of several festival goers.

As written in the first sentence, this is already the seventh time that the Swedenrock festival has been featured in the site of Metal-Rules.com, so it is quite logical for us to give an in-depth article of several bands performing at Swedenrock. However we are not able to cover every band, but hopefully you will have a pleasant reading moment… Enjoy !!!
