Summer Slaughter Tour - San Francisco, USA - August 2016 18.08

Another year, another Summer Slaughter! Always a highlight for me.

This was the 10th Anniversary so of course it was going to be amazing. Right? Well... it was not the best year ever but still a successful night. (by Susan)   Read more ››

Revocation 18.08

The Summer Slaughter Tour rocked its way across the United States yet again, and I had the pleasure of speaking with the awesome guys from Revocation before their set. There are many nice and cool musicians out there playing metal, but few bands are as instantly likeable, easy-going, and fun as Revocation. When we weren't talking about dildos or farting, we actually got down to some business. Here are some of those more business-related highlights from our chat: Susan: The new album seems pretty well received. What were you guys hoping to accomplish with it? (by Susan)   Read more ››
Nile 07.08

Last month, on the opening day of the Summer Slaughter tour no less, I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking to the main man from Nile himself: Karl Sanders. On a hot summer day in Fort Lauderdale, I was warmly invited aboard his tour bus for a lovely talk about the festival, band business, historical artificacts, and more. (by Apothecary)   Read more ››
Skyforger 22.07

Bad English: This may be a weird question, but how do you envision the Latvian metal scene if bands such as Skyforger and Heaven Grey had never existed? Peter Kvetkovskis: Well, there was always and still is another bands around - the metal scene here is quite big enough even without Skyforger or Heaven Grey. The question is how unique and original those bands are, but that's another topic to talk about I guess. It is very hard to make your name worldwide if you are from such a small far away country like Latvia is. You must be somehow original to stand out from millions of bands playing...

Folk Metal (with a few Black Metal influences) Recorded: Studio Touché, The Netherlands 2006-2007 Label: Shiver Records Total Running Time: 49:11 Let it be very clear from the beginning of this review: folk metal is not really my cup of tea. In all honesty, it never really has been, and I'm afraid it never really will be either. And now that we're being honest with each other, although I was not really having high hopes when I received this one through the mail, I must say Myrkvar... (by Thryce)   Read more ››
