At the end of July it was once again time for the third annual edition of the Vasby Rock Festival. The festival is located inside the town of Vasby, Sweden, a suburb to the capitol Stockholm, at a soccer field. Bands like Astral Doors, Vasby Rock Allstars, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Eclipse, H.E.A.T,, Danger Danger, Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock and W.A.S.P. performed. It was the first time I visited the festival and this is what happened during the two days of rock, fun, and sun. Read more….
SEBASTIEN proudly presents a brand new live-video from this year’s MASTERS OF ROCK festival!!! It’s an exclusive version of one of BLACK SABBATH highlights, “Headless Cross”, which was performed with an unforgettable line-up:
Tony Martin (ex-BLACK SABBATH) – vocal
Roland Grapow (MASTERPLAN, ex-HELLOWEEN) – guitar, backing vocal
George Rain (SEBASTIEN) – guitar
Petri Kallio (SEBASTIEN) – bass
Pavel Dvořák (SEBASTIEN, WARHAWK) – keyboards
Martin ‘Marthus’ Skaroupka (CRADLE OF FILTH, MASTERPLAN) – drums
…the mix and mastering of the live recording was made by Roland Grapow himself in GRAPOW STUDIOS! That’s also where final mixing-works of SEBASTIEN’s second album, “Dark Chambers of Déja vu”, are made nowadays. The long promised new album – including some great guest-appearances – is going to be released in 2015…
Former BLACK SABBATH singer Tony Martin, ex-HAMMERFALL bassist Magnus Rosén and KING DIAMOND guitarist Andy LaRocque have launched an all-star project that also features drummer Danny Needham (VENOM).
The as-yet-unnamed four-piece are currently writing material at LaRocque’s Sonic Train Studios in Varberg, Sweden and in England.
The foursome stress: “This all-star band is not a project! It’s a band!”
Check out a photo below of Rosén, Martin and LaRocque in Sweden in late February. Martin held two workshops in Göteborg and Falköping, Sweden at Rosén’s Musikstationen and Musikskolan respectively. According to Rosén, “Tony Martin was a hit with his tales from the ten years he played with Black Sabbath. He also talked about his way of singing, plus even had a little live performance.”
