Bloodaxe – Nordavinden Lien

Interview with Nordavinden Lien

Blistering cold, howling winds, Norse history?sounds like your standard theme for a Scandinavian Black Metal CD, right?  Well, in the case of Thunder Bay, Ontario?s Bloodaxe, a one-man band featuring Nordavinden Lien, those themes populate the vicious sounds of the band?s music through and through.  Lien, a Canadian of Norwegian descent, is the driving force behind Bloodaxe and has been steering the longship for the better part of five years.  The release of RAPING THE ANCIENT in 2004 brought new attention to Bloodaxe and the upcoming, FOR THOSE WHO HUNT THE WOUNDED DOWN, will elevate the band to the next level of greatness amongst the realms of underground blackened thrash. 

Lien is extremely frank and candid in this interview and offers no apologies for his thoughts, ideas or opinions?nor should he have to.  ?The Force From The North? is here to bludgeon, pillage and dominate and NOTHING will stand in his way?

STRATOVARIUS – Jens Johansson

August 22nd, 2005

After a turbulent year, Stratovarius has emerged from the soap opera that was the band with a new self-titled album and a new approach. The music is still easily identifiable as Stratovarius, but the trademark speed is completely absent from the new album as is the presence of most (not all) shredding guitars and most of the blazing keyboard solos that the pair are known for. Despite the changes, and the missing ingredients, the songs are catchy and quite good. I questioned Jens on the new direction, the past year?s events, and among other things touched upon the infamous ?release the fury? Yngwie recording for which he was present as a member of Yngwie?s Rising Force band.

HammerFall Drummer Anders Johansson

HammerFall
Drummer Anders Johansson

Interviewed by EvilG
Transcribed by Duke

Anders Johansson is not normally the mouthpiece for HammerFall. For that reason alone I was interested in doing this interview. As well, Anders has a long and interesting history in hard rock / heavy metal. I managed to squeeze in a few questions out his early days with Yngwie along with some questions about his solo and fusion projects along with the usual HammerFall stuff. Enjoy….
