Chris Bay of Freedom Call discussed Master Of Light and ProgPower USA XVII

chris_22a0365

German power metal band Freedom Call just released their 9th studio album titled Master Of Light. The album is a 12 track rollercoaster ride of the most exquisite and honest power metal material that you will get to listen this year. Power metal is, in theory, one of the most underrated genres out there, often called cheesy or just plain, but for some out there, it is the best fitting vehicle to express their daily life experiences in an epic form, and that is exactly what Freedom Call has done in their new album Master of Light.   Read the rest of this entry »

Devilment – Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes (2016)

dvlmnt

Devilment surprises greatly with their sophomore album Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes as it comes across as a heavier and darker album than their album debut The Great and Secret Show. It seems that the influence of Dani‘s dark and twisted mind finally caught up with Devilment as the album is just a dark tale after another.   Read the rest of this entry »

Ted Aguilar of Death Angel talks about touring, The Evil Divide & The Pack

death-angel-15

Bay area thrash metal titans Death Angel recently finished a long North American tour with Slayer and Anthrax. It seems that it was a roller coaster tour for the guys of Death Angel as they had dates opening for Slayer and Anthrax that only allowed them a 30-minute set, while at some of the dates with Anthrax they had a 45-minute set and their headlining shows were, of course, longer than that.

Joe, Jake & Martin of ONI discussed touring and Ironshore

oni3

You don’t hear too much heavy metal coming from the Cayman Islands, actually progressive extreme band ONI might be the first band we heard that comes from there. Even though, they are now concentrated in Ontario, Canada their interesting blend of modern progressive metal with non-traditional instruments (yes, they have a Xylophone player) makes their proposal not only unusual for a metal band but quite interesting when you listen to them live.

Dani Filth discusses Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes

dvl

Witch county innovators Devilment are returning to the international spotlight with a new album titled; Devilment II: The Mephisto Waltzes. This eleven track album from which the last two songs are bonus tracks (The Seductive Poison & Father Dali) can be considered as the most dark and extreme material the band have released so far. The songs are a reflection of the gothic and dark nature of the band, and how they have been forging their own sound since the release of their debut album The Great and Secret Show (2014) Read the rest of this entry »

Death Angel plays Club Red (Mesa, AZ 10/28/16)

da

On Friday, October 28, Death Angel played a headlining show at Club Red in Mesa, AZ. It was the third to last date of their two-month-long tour with Slayer and Anthrax. As much as I would have loved to see Slayer and Anthrax play, I was happy that this was one of Death Angel‘s headlining night so they had a longer set. I’ve seen them live twice before and always love seeing them.

Tracing Back Roots: a conversation with Max Cavalera

rtr5

Since the Cavalera brothers left Sepultura there has been a lot of questions, speculation and rumors about a reunion of the original Sepultura line up, and the answers from both sides have been diverse but none of those answers have been positive, at the same time it seems everyone has moved on with their lives and their projects. With that in mind, this year Max & Iggor Cavalera had decided to revisit the seminal Sepultura album Roots which just turned 20 years, and to celebrate it they have created a tour and titled it ‘Return to Roots‘  Read the rest of this entry »

Halestorm/Lita Ford/Dorothy at Marquee Theater (Tempe, AZ 10/11/16)

hale2

After witnessing an amazing performance by Halestorm at Hellfest, I wanted to see them again in a more intimate setting. So, when I heard they were coming to Tempe to play at Marquee Theater I knew I had to be at that show. The fact that Halestorm is doing this tour with Lita Ford made it way more appealing as I have been looking  to see Lita live for a long time. So I when down to the Marquee last Tuesday night to catch the show I came across with a huge turn out for a Tuesday night.  Read the rest of this entry »
