Desolation Angels (2018)

Interview with DESOLATION ANGELS

Formed in the early 80's out of love for classic chorus-driven Heavy Rock music, they shockwaved the NWOBHM underground scene and embarked on a music exploration journey that led them across the Atlantic. However, doing business in the music world takes more than blood, sweat and tears, something the band had to learn the hard way. With mr. Paul Taylor (ELIXIR) behind the mic and a couple of new faces on the drums and bass, DESOLATION ANGELS are still alive and kicking. "King" marked the band's 3rd album and mr. Rob Brancher surely doesn't hold back when it comes to speak his mind...
Cauldron (2018)

Interview with CAULDRON

Formed about a decade ago, CAULDRON have been on track and consistently delivering albums ever since. They breath for Heavy Metal, something you can easily tell by their looks, sound and overall aesthetics. After a devastating accident threw them off the wagon, the band got back on track and recently delivered their fifth album, "New Gods". Ian Chains (guitar) was kind enough to spend some of his time answering our questions. Check it out...

Toledo Steel

Interview with TOLEDO STEEL

TOLEDO STEEL is a band whose name is inspired by Spanish steel, but its music is being forged in England. The quarter carries the flame of the "old" alongside the banner of the "new". Having just released their first full-length release, Rich Rutter (vocals) was kind enough to chime in and shed some light about the band's past, present and future.
Seven Sisters (2018)

Interview with SEVEN SISTERS

SEVEN SISTERS have managed to mash legends of Arthurian Britain, Greek mythology, NWOBHM and US power/prog influences into a solid alloy that's hard to ignore. Their latest album was a good excuse to chat with them, so sit back and enjoy what you're about to read.

WARLORD: The legend of William J Tsamis lives – Interview and...

To tell you the truth I was a little bit skeptical when I first learned about the Warlord tribute project set by drummer and founding member Mark Zonder and singer Giles Lavery to honor the music and memory of founder guitarist William J Tsamis who unfortunately passed away back in 2021. I was looking at the facts very closely, reading announcements about forthcoming live shows, new line up and a new album. The response from the fans was massive including both positive and negative (or very negative) comments about the above facts. "How can Warlord exist without Bill Tsamis?", they were asking. One afternoon I got a call from Giles Lavery himself asking me if I wanted to do an advance review of the forthcoming Warlord album. I replied positively still being in this skeptical mood. It all went away after the first listen... William J Tsamis was there. His music, his legend, his compositions, evolved into complete songs. In total excitement I texted Giles a single message "Bill is alive". The very next evening found Mark, Giles and I talking about the album, about Bill, about the music and the legacy. It was late at night when we ended the call. I asked them if I can publish our conversation and they got no problem. So here it is again: Me talking with Warlord. The usual stuff I am doing the last 25 years for various reasons. But this time I would not call this conversation an interview. To my eyes this is a big ethical, artistic and soulful statement, by some people who want to keep the Dream, alive.
