Midnight Eternal is the name of a new band from New York and is the brainchild of Operatika members Richard Fischer and Boris Zaks. The band’s self-titled debut album was unleashed in April and ought to appeal to fans of symphonic metal. Singer Raine Hilai and I hooked up and we had a talk about the album, which has taken the band 2 years to finish, the fact the band has become high profiled in the NY area with only their demo and their support shows to Doro, The Agonist and Quiet Riot amongst others. The album was mixed by the famous Tommy Hansen with art work by Jan Yrlund and is jammed with epic songs perfect for fans of Delain, Nightwish and Kamelot.

Once again it was time for me and Metal-Rules.com to hook up with the guitar-wizard, songwriting-genius, mastermind and bandleader Henrik Flyman in Evil Masquerade. If you haven’t checked out the bands brand new sixth album THE DIGITAL CRUCIFIX then be sure to do so because the disc is jammed with some really edgy traditional heavy metal/neo-classical songs. Personally I think that Evil Masquerade is one of the best metal acts around at the moment, and if you’re interested in getting to know Henrik Flyman, the band, his vision, the break up with former lead singer Apollo Papathansio, the entrance of the new Swedish singer Tobias Jansson (Saffire), and also this year the band celebrates 10 years as a band, then check out the interview. If you want to read more about Henrik Flyman and Evil Masquerade take a look at the past interviews that are featured here in metal-rules.com. Read the rest of this entry »

Signus Regis – the Slovakian heavy metal band unleashed their third album EXODUS last year. The album is a theme album with guests vocalists like Göran Edman, Daisa Munhoz, Michael Vescera and Lance King. Since I thought the album was great I thought I should hook up with bandleader/bass player Ronnie König in order to get to know a little bite more about the band and their history. We handled issues like EXODUS, the matter of guest vocalists, the line-up and labels. Another topic that was handled was also the status of heavy metal/hardrock in Slovakia. Enjoy.

From the very north of Sweden comes the melodic hard rock act Coldspell. The band recently released its third album titled FROZEN PARADISE and I hooked up with bandleader/guitarist Michael Larsson in order to have a chat about the new album. Besides the album, we also spoke about the bands past present and future and what lies ahead for the band in 2014. For some reason haven’t I heard the band before but when I heard the excellent FROZEN PARADISE it was a must for me to check out the band and their brilliant melodic hardrock music. Enjoy.

I had the pleasure to have a chat with Claus Nielsen guitarist in the thrashy heavy metal band Anoxia from Denmark. What we talked about can be read down below but I can say that we talked a lot about their brand new debut album A LAPDANCE FOR THE DEVIL. Anoxia is definitely worth checking out if you’re into heavy metal.
