Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

Thanks to Emil Westerdahl at Inner Wound Recordings for setting up the interview. Thanks to Inner Wound Recordings for the promo pictures of the band.

The Italian folk/power metal act Wind Rose recently released their third album, STONEHYMN, and I hooked up with vocalist Franscesco Cavalieri and guitarist Claudio Falconcini a while back to chat about topics like work on the new album, co-operation with their new, Swedish label Inner Wound Recordings, as well as what the future has in store. If you’re into Wintersun, Turisas, Finntroll, and bands in that genre, you’ll probably enjoy what Wind Rose has to offer. Enjoy.

Ghost at the O2 ABC Glasgow, Wednesday 29th March 2017

April 13th, 2017

Ghost

O2 ABC Glasgow – 29th March 2017

Review and photography by Gavin Lowrey

Ghost is the religion and tonight’s service is blessing the ABC in Glasgow

 Ghost are an act that are musically diverse and contradictory, and are pure theatre, and with a Grammy in the bag too, have the gravitas to go with their brand of music that varies so wildly

The show is sold out and the venue is packed by the time support band Zombi hit the stage

The band are an instrumental two piece from Pittsburgh featuring Steve More on Bass and Keys with Anthony Pattera behind the kit. Five albums in a dozen years is not a bad haul and their set proves they are a tight outfit.

Their set however does drag, and without the vocals, one song does tend to drag into another, if I had to categorise them, I’d say its a kind of Depeche Mode/Rush crossover which is good in small doses but didn’t really float my boat (6/10)

You can literally cut the atmosphere with a knife as we start the build up to the main event, and 15 minutes of church interval music certainly amp things up to another level

Starting off with the catchy (Some may even say “poppy”)  new track  “Square Hammer” we are blessed with a stellar performance that has ghost right up there with the best of them, not only providing the theatre but having the tunes to back it up

“Pinnacle to the Pit” has the crowd in good voice, something that carries on throughout the show, be it singing long to the songs or laughing at Papa Emeritus quips

“Con Clavi Don Dio” bass notes tones demonstrate that the sound this evening is exceptional and also gives Papa a chance to give his thurible a wee run out

The Star of the show is clearly Papa Emeritus, however the Nameless Ghouls really come into their own and demonstrate they too have a real identity and personality, despite their masks covering their identity

As a result of this, they also have the ability to come and go as they please, something we had first hand experience of outside the venue before the show………..but my lips are sealed

The crowd are given communion by a couple of “Sisters of Sin” before “Body & Blood” something the crowd lap up, but they don’t need free booze to get the crowd on side because as Steven Tyler says they  “Let the Music do the Talkin'”

The diversity of the Music is one of the beauties of the band, Pop (“He Is”) & Rock (“Absolution”)  to Metal (“Mummy Dust”) it’s all there, and the crowd lap it up

The growth in stature of the band, not only as a live act but as a recording artist has been impressive, and with a Grammy to boot they have the gravitas to break into a more mainstream audience, and introduce them to religion that is Ghost

Setlist

1. Square Hammer

2. Pinnacle to The Pit

3. Secular Haze

4. Con Clavi Con Dio

5. Per Aspera Ad Inferi

6. Body & Blood

7. Circle

8. Year Zero

CROMONIC  – Interview with vocalist Pasi Humppi (ex-Freternia)

April 5th, 2017

CROMONIC  – Vocalist Pasi Humppi (ex-Freternia)

Interviewed by EvilG

Pasi Humppi is a name I remember well and fondly from his time with the Swedish power metal band Freternia. When I was contacted by Pasi, and given the chance to hear the new CROMONIC, I was excited because to me this new band carries on a lot of the feeling and style from Freternia. Like Freternia, Cromonic are also a Borås, Sweden-based heavy/power-metal band. Cromonic formed with the current lineup in 2013 and consists of five members. With their debut album ”Time” coming out this week, now is a good time to talk about all things Cromonic, and of course, to fill in some of the gaps regarding Freternia.

Drummer Astrid Carsbring – Heavy Tiger

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall

Thanks to Carl von Schewen at Sound Pollution for setting up the interview
Promo pictures taken by: Niclas Brunzell
Thanks to Wild Kingdom for the promo pictures of the band

GLITTER is the name of the brand new second album released by ’70’s rock/punk-influenced female trio Heavy Tiger. Drummer Astrid Carsbring was kind enough to take on this short interview in which we talked about the new album, what’s it like to be an all-female act, and what it was like to perform in Vietnam and Japan. Heavy Tiger has been opening act to Backyard Babies and Michael Monroe and is, in my opinion, the next big thing from Sweden.

Va Rocks – vocalist and guitarist Ida S. Vollmer

Vocalist and guitarist Ida S. Vollmer – Va Rocks

Interviewed by: Anders Sandvall
Promo pictures taken by: Jörgen Rasmusson, Distortion Media
Live pictures taken by: Björn Olsson
Additional live pictures taken from the archives of: Anders Sandvall

If you’re into rock n’ roll music in vein of The Runaways, Ramones, AC/DC, and Airbourne, I think you ought to check out PULL NO PUNCHES, the debut album from Swedish all-female trio VA Rocks. The band has been active for a decade and have toured their way through the southern parts of Sweden for quite a while. Now it’s time to make the world aware of this ass kicking trio. I consider PULL NO PUNCHES as one of the best albums of last year (2016). I had the pleasure to speak to vocalist and guitarist Ida; down below you can read what she had to say about why it’s taken the band so long to release their debut, what the songs are about, and what the future has in store for the band. VA Rocks is a band that has the future ahead of them; remember where you read about them first…
