Interview_harmony_band_promo_2_2015

At the end of November last year Harmony unleashed their third album THEATRE OF REDEMPTION. The album is jammed with melodic metal and since I really got hooked by what I heard, I thought I should give band leader/guitarist Markus Sigfridsson a call. We hooked up and I had a lot of questions for Sigfridsson; we handled topics like the band’s past albums and why it has taken Harmony so long to follow up CHAPTER II: THE AFTERMATH from 2008. THEATRE OF REDEMPTION was mixed by the legendary Fredrik Nordström so I simply had to ask how it was to work with him. Parts of Harmony are also involved in the band Darkwater and I asked how the members handle being in two acts at once.

The Swedish death metal warriors Unleashed have been forging with the hammer and the anvil since 1989 and released a number of albums. The most recent album titled DAWN OF THE NINE being the 12th in a row is another death metal masterpiece showing no slowing down or wimping out. The four piece warrior squad have maintained  and been the loyal to the deadly sounds. Unleashed’s s long time drummer Anders Schultz was approached with a few questions dealing with DAWN OF THE NINE.

Morbid Angel is celebrating the 20th anniversary of their COVENANT album by playing the entire record from beginning to end at each show. Well actually it was 21 years ago the album came but who’s counting? I had been looking forward to seeing the show for quite a while and my expectations were set really high.

Guitarist Mats Karlsson and Thomas Drevin – 220 Volt

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall
Thanks to Birgitt Schwanke at GerMusica Promotion & Management for help with setting up the interview.
Thanks to AOR Heaven for the promo pictures of the band.

220_volt_promo_interview_2014_1220 Volt is a legendary metal band from Sweden that began their journey in the metal industry back in 1979. The band made its comeback in 2014 with the album WALKING IN STARLIGHT. I had the pleasure to talk to the two remaining original members in the band today – guitarist Mats Karlsson and Thomas Drevin. Besides talking about the brand new album and the comeback we also spoke about the turmoil in the past with members coming and going. If you like music in the veins of 80’s old school hard rock / metal, you surely will like 220 Volt and WALKING IN STARLIGHT.

Skid Row @ The Underworld, Camden

Skid Row

Skid Row

For a band with such a long history that have retained strong popularity 30 years on, it seems strange that Skid Row would be booked to play a venue as small as the London Underworld that evening. Any fan hoping to purchase a ticket on the door would have been severely disappointed with the gig long sold out. Perhaps it was the reputation of the first band, or maybe everyone was out to party that night as walking into the Underworld I was greeted to a packed out room, a rare sight on a school night.

persuader_promo_2014_7

From the northern parts of Sweden comes the power metal kings, Persuader. The band is back to attack after a long break. Their previous album WHEN EDEN BURNS came out in 2006 and they are now back with a vengeance with the brand new opus THE FICTION MAZE. I was blown away by THE FICTION MAZE and urge everyone who is a fan of well played, edgy power metal to check out the album. Persuader makes me glad to be Swedish! I had the luck to have a chat with guitarist Emil Norberg and drummer Efraim Juntunen where we talked about the brand new album, what the band has been up to in between releases, as well as what the guys think the future has in store for Persuader. Enjoy!

Madness Of the Night is a Swedish goth/dark wave duo that released their debut album THE ASGARDA in November 2013.

Garagedays is the name of the Austrian band that recently released their brilliant debut album DARK AND COLD to the metal masses. I hooked up with band leader and master mind Marco Kern in order to set the record straight regarding the bands past present and future as well as DARK AND COLD as the recording process that took them to Sweden. Garagedays has also been out as support act to the band Master and the music of Garagedays ought to appeal to fans of heavy metal.
