Anzi Destruction: Inspiration in the Forest
Anzi Destruction is a young musician from Finland, who, with his former band Stereo Junks, had a lot of bad luck career-wise. Many line-up changes and hard times made him finally decide to become a solo artist again. Now, he released his first full-length record titled High Clash Motherf***er! We talked with the talented rocker at Trash Fest Helsinki about him going solo. >> more/mehr

Apocalyptica (part 1): Curiosity is the key
At the end of their support tour for the US band Sixx:A.M. in the States, cellist Perttu Kivilaakso and I decided to sit down together and have an intensive chat about their latest album “Shadowmaker”, even though the band´s schedule was busy and the idea for this interview had come out of the blue and was fully spontaneous.
We met up in Philadelphia ahead of their show and managed to lock ourselves up in the Sixx:A.M. massage room to have the first part of our extensive chat on their latest album. Therefore, stay tuned for part 2, coming soon! >> more/mehr

ARIA: Finally aiming West
Some good things take a while... not only until Aria, one of the most known and respected Russian Heavy Metal bands, finally played in Finland for the first time ever (we reported ). The band – which fills arenas in their home country - has been around since the mid 80′s and released a lot of outstanding albums during these years. Unfortunately conducting interviews with the help of a translator took too much time for the band´s tight schedule, but thanks to the colleague from Metal-rules.com we can share with you what those Russian Metal veterans got to say... >> more/mehr

Árstíðir: Icelandic poetry in an abandoned power plant
Vocal-based acoustic band Árstíðir from Reykjavik was founded in 2008 by Daníel Auðunsson (guitar), Gunnar Már Jakobsson (guitar) and Ragnar Ólafsson (baritone guitar). Soon the band grew into a quintett with Hallgrímur Jónas Jensson on cello and Jón Elísson on piano. After releasing their debut album “Árstíðir” in 2009, violinist Karl James Pestka completed the band. Tours in Scandinavia, Finland and Russia followed, and after the second album “Svefns og vöku skil” they toured more countries. In 2012 they competed for the Eiserner Eversteiner, the only European Folk Award of Germany, at the 21st Folkherbst in Plauen, and won the jury award. When they returned to Plauen on January 26th for the award ceremony at the Malzhaus, I met the band and interviewed Hallgrímur and Jón. Both were in a great mood and ready to share many interesting stories, e.g. how their songs develop, the strict rules of Icelandic poetry and why it´s not a good idea to touch buttons in an abandoned power plant. >> more/mehr
