Halestorm
Arejay et Lzzy, qui sont frère et sœur, forment Halestorm en 1997, alors qu’ils n’avaient que respectivement 10 et 13 ans. Dans ce premier line-up, leur père occupait le poste de bassiste avant que Josh Smith ne rejoigne le groupe. Ils réussirent ainsi à occuper trois fois la couverture de Pennsylvania Musician.
Le groupe décrocha un contrat chez Atlantic Records le 28 juin 2005. de la tout s’accélère pour le groupe qui tourne avec Papa Roach, Disturbed, Buckcherry, Avenged Sevenfold, Shinedown, Seether, Flyleaf…En Janvier 2017, Halestorm publie un troisième album de reprises, Reanimate 3.0.

In This Moment
Maria Brink (Chant) et Chris Howorth (Guitare) fondent un groupe de Metal à Los Angeles en 2005 qui s’appelle au départ Dying Star. Ils recrutent alors Blake Bunzel (Guitare), Josh Newell (Basse) et Jeff Fabb (Batterie) qui viennent compléter la formation et changent par ailleurs de nom pour adopter In This Moment. Josh ne reste pas longtemps et est remplacé par Jess Landry à l’hiver 2005. Rob Nicholson, bassiste pour Ozzy Osbourne, devient le manager du groupe qui publie ses premières démos sur myspace. Leur fanbase s’agrandit et leur nom arrive jusqu’aux oreilles de Century Media Records qui signent leur premier album, Beautiful Tragedy début 2007, porté par les singles Prayers et le morceau éponyme. Leur recette combinant Metalcore, Metal et Hard-Rock fonctionne et In This Moment a la possibilité de tourner avec Lacuna Coil, de se produire au Ozzfest 2007 et 2008, et d’accompagner des pointures comme Megadeth et Rob Zombie.

New Years Day
New Years Day est un groupe de heavy metal américain formé en 2005 et originaire d’Anaheim, en Californie.When it All Comes Down, sorti en 2004, s’écartait du style pop punk humoristique des compositions précédentes, et incorporait plus d’éléments émotionnels que Lohrbach appliquera aussi avec New Year’s Day. Il se rapproche alors de la chanteuse Ashley Costello et du guitariste et claviériste Keith Drover, et le groupe d’amis ainsi formé commence à répéter les morceaux écrits par Costello et Lohrbach. Ces chansons sont fortement imprégnées de leurs expériences passées, tous les trois ayant récemment subi des ruptures difficiles .

EPICA @ Élysée Montmartre, Paris (Sold Out)

 

*CONCERT COMPLET*

Le groupe de Metal Symphonique Epica annonce une série de concerts exclusifs afin de fêter le 10e anniversaire de son album mythique “Design Your Universe”. Et quoi de mieux que l’Élysée Montmartre – salle où ils nous l’ont présenté pour la première fois – pour souffler ses 10 bougies ? L’occasion pour le groupe et pour ses fans de revivre ensemble des moments d’émotion et de souvenirs ; car au-delà de cet anniversaire, il s’agit d’un album précieux et significatif pour toute la communauté Epica !

— 1ère partie : Blackbriar

Formé en 2012, Blackbriar se fait remarquer dès 2015 avec le titre « Until Eternity », qui s’accompagne d’un clip captivant, vu près de 12 millions de fois. Fort de ce premier succès, le groupe enregistre son premier EP, « Fractured Fairytales », une fusion de symphonique et gothique, qui voit le jour en mai 2017. S’en suit une tournée aux côtés d’Epica, MaYan, Dark Sarah, Sleeping Romance et End of the Dream. « We’d Rather Burn », leur deuxième EP, produit par Joost van den Broek (After Forever, Epica, Ayreon, Xandria, Powerwolf), sort en 2018 et ancre leur place dans le monde du Metal. Blackbriar travaille actuellement sur son premier album, prévu pour fin 2019.

Ils ouvriront pour Epica à Paris, Oberhausen (All) et Utrecht (Hol).

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal From Sons Of Apollo Talks Touring With Dream Theater And The New Album

During Hellfest, we had the chance to sit down and talk to Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal from Sons Of Apollo about the current tour, the new album, and so many other things, you can read the whole conversation below and view the photos from their performance.

Metal Bell: Thank you so much for this opportunity to chat during the first show in Europe, it was a great show, congratulations.

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: Thank you so much.

Metal Bell: So how does it feel to play your first show at Hellfest?

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: Oh it is a great way to start a European tour, that’s for sure, no better way to start so we are very happy, to start a tour in front of 30,000 people I guess it’s ok (laughs).

Metal Bell: Have you ever played Hellfest before?

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: Yeah six years ago with Guns, we headlined it, it is nice to be here doing it with people that are close to you, friends with whom we wrote together, we recorded together, and it’s great.

Metal Bell: Your tour started in February, how is the reception so far?

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: Oh it is wonderful, this is our 42nd show I believe, it’s been great. We started off on the cruise to the edge, and then from there we went to the east coast and did like a week and a half of shows. And then April and May we did a big US tour, actually, we did South America, Mexico, Canada, and all around in the US. Nothing beats getting on the road, that’s what every band used to do to become who they are, being together every night and do it.

Metal Bell: How do I put this question, tell me how did

you come up or assemble The Avengers of Prog?

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: (laughs) That was very easy, we all knew each other and played together over the years.
Me and Billy were playing for years doing these jams with Ray Luzier from KORN and with Mike. Me, Mike, and Billy would be this core band and we’d play like big events in New York, with guys from Anthrax and Kiss joining us. I laid guest solos on Metal Allegiance’s first album with Mike and another album that Billy produced for Madame Mayhem, a great artist that I laid 4 guitar solos for her album.

Me, Mike, Derek, and Billy played together at Prog Nation 4 years ago, so we all have this background and we’ve done things together, so it was a no-brainer. When Mike wanted to do this band, he sent me an email, it was January 2017, he said: hey, how we always talked about putting a band together! Well me and Derek have this idea and we want to go into the studio in March and just write on the spot, record on the spot, we all play together and mark it, record it the way bands used to do it, the right way, it’s the real thing. And we’ve written spontaneously, we did that, we spent 10 days at the studio, we wrote, recorded and made the album in 10 days.

So it was me, Mike, and Derek in the studio, and then Billy cut off his Mr. Big’s tour halfway through and joined us, then we all just recorded. Jeff finished his touring, then he recorded his vocals at my studio where I laid my

guitar solos on everything, and that was it. And then we just waited for the right moment to go out and announce the band and put out the album. The label is wonderful (Inside Out), they’ve been a fantastic record label, so supportive and really a good team.

Metal Bell: So basically You, Mike, and Derek wrote the majority of the album?

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: Yeah it started with us and then Billy joined, then Jeff wrote everything you hear sung, that’s Jeff, he was really the key ingredient to turn it from a cold prog album to songs, things you can sing along you know, melodies that stick, that’s what Jeff does, he’s the guy.

Metal Bell: Today the band is less than a year old, considering all of your projects and involvements, will Sons Of Apollo be a long-term project?

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: That’s the question everyone has, is this another quick project or is it a band that’s gonna be around.

Our intentions are for it to be a band that’s gonna be around, but at the same time, we can’t completely neglect everything else we have, we can’t do that. It is also not fair for the other people in our life that are waiting for us so we still have to do other things. This year we’ll do a lot of Sons Of Apollo, next year we’re gonna have to do some other things, but you know we are already writing for the second album, it really goes down to business, not amongst each other, but we can’t just afford to be in a start-up band, put everything else aside, and get this off the ground. We are not 20-year old kids in a van you know, so it’s tough, but we are giving it our best and our intentions are to be a band that puts out a lot of albums and keeps on going and going. So as long as everyone on our team does the right thing, you know we are depending on managers, the label and on each other, all it takes is one person to fuck it all up and then we are all screwed, it could be anybody that we are depending on if they don’t do the right thing.

What we want for this band is to continue and we are doing everything possible to keep that going even when odds are against us, we want to keep going, we do.

Metal Bell: We do hope so too, you know how prog fans are so attached.

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: Sure yeah, and we made a pact with them, we said this is a band, we are obligated to keep our words to them and to ourselves.

Metal Bell: The history between Derek, Mike, and Dream Theater, would you ever consider a tour with them?

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: I would love to do it, I have such tremendous respect for Dream Theater as a band and individuals. I love John Petrucci, we’ve met before, we’ve chatted, he’s a wonderful guy. I also played on Jordan’s solo record in 2009, he was just incredible. That would be a wonderful thing.

And honestly I feel like there would be no Sons Of Apollo if there was no Dream Theater, you know you have to respect where this came from and everything that leads up to it, the influences and the history, and I do, I tremendously do.

It’d be wonderful to play together, I doubt it would ever happen, that would be really something interesting to the fans to see that. I would love it to be taken not as a competition in any way, we are all branches of Dream Theater’s tree and I’m grateful to them, I respect and admire them.

Metal Bell: Your second album is called Sophomore, is there already a date in mind?

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: Well I mean Derek has written things, he sends me videos and things like hey check out this riff I came up with, and we’ve talked to the label about it but nothing is definite yet. Right now, it’s just let us finish up what we have here and once it’s all clear and done, everything goes ok, we will then think about the next step. Even though now is the time to think about it, we are just staying focused and looking ahead, so we are thinking about this leg of the tour, then the next leg, and the leg after that so there’s no definitive time. We’ve talked about November going into the studio but I know Mike has something to do in November so it might be January, but hopefully not too far too long.

Metal Bell: Well thank you very much for the chat, it’s been wonderful talking to you and the best of luck for the rest of the tour.

Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal: Thank you very much. It was an absolute pleasure.

NIGHTCHAINS Reunion Concert – REVIEW

Ten years after their split-up, Hamra-based Nightchains decided to have a reunion with the original vocalist Max to take the lead. The event was a one-time deal, no signs or announcement of a possible reunion of the band.

On Saturday November 6, we arrived only to find a few people gathered in front of the venue. The crowd wasn’t much during the event either, maybe around 60 people showed up. And it is a shame, because the event was a true Metal night, a night to remember.

Before getting into the band performances, I would like to talk briefly about the light and sound. Wait! What light? There was actually none; some red and blue dots and a stroboscope that didn’t help much in setting up the mood for the event. But the sound on the other hand was great, raw, clean, harsh, and perfect for the evening.

The openers were Agressor! Who are those guys? Well, we know Mohamad Younis (Nightchains drummer who was playing the guitars and vocals). But I never knew they existed and they don’t even have a Facebook page; it seemed to me they were only formed for this particular event as a one-time band. But let me tell you, they were crazy good. A great well-fit performance with great attitude.

Then came out the headliners, Nightchains. Again, it is a pity that only a few got to witness this. The band is top-notch; they have the best crowd-band interaction you can ever see. The lack of an actual stage helped too. The band were at the level of the crowd as if they were performing in between them, which gave the impression of a Big Happy family. The most remarkable thing was that people reacted much more to the originals of Nightchains than anything else I have seen. Some were singing along, others were screaming high pitches with Max.

Max was a power force on the microphone, and his attitude was really enjoyable: jokes, laughter, and heavy singing. We actually didn’t feel we were at a concert, we rather felt that we were a part of it, and that’s all due to the charisma of the band leader and musicians. Tex was flawless on his guitar, giving those crazy old school solos with his authentic guitar sound; nothing can be any better. I enjoyed Mohammad Younis’s drumming the most; it is fast, hard, and well, the beat makes you headbang. Rami Hawila did an incredible job on the bass as well; he completed and filled in for the guitar while keeping up the tempo of the songs intact.

Now for the best part: THE CROWD. There is no successful concert with a lame crowd, and Nightchains fans are not lame at all. The moshing didn’t stop, the headbanging didn’t stop, and they were the last ring to complete the “Chain”. An incredible crowd indeed.

In short, it was a night for the ages, and whoever didn’t come, missed a lot. And you might say I am exaggerating, but really, maybe you have to see it with your own eyes to believe it.

About Nightchains

The band was formed during the year 2003 and split up just short of 3 years later in 2006. Nightchains managed to  self-release a low produced album entitled “Metal To The Bones” that was recorded live with no further mixing or mastering. Metal To The Bones sounds similar to early Metallica, and Paul Di’anno’s Iron Maiden with a Manowarian spirit in the lyrics and composition, and a little bit of Judas Priest here and there. In 2010, the band resurfaced on social media and the album was re-released through DEAD MASTER’S BEAT.

QUEENSRŸCHE’s Hellfire Is Out Now

QUEENSRŸCHE released a new song, “Hellfire”, from their upcoming album “Condition Hüman” which will be available on October 2nd via Century Media.

Singer Todd La Torre tells Billboard: “Each song individually is its own story, which does not have to directly relate to the next song. However, each song is harmonious to a larger picture, which is the human experience, mortality and how each of us perceives the world around us based on our own observations and experiences, thus shaping human behavior.”

Queensryche Hellfire

Regarding the more aggressive musical direction of “Condition Hüman” compared to that of 2013’s “Queensrÿche”, Rockenfield said: “Our fans love metal, and we’ve been pretty good at doing metal in our past, so [we thought], ‘Let’s have fun with some of that again. Let’s do it and see what it means for us.’ We definitely had conscious discussions about it, and now that we have Todd, Todd loves metal, so it was easy to have that conversation about pushing the band in a little bit of that direction.” He added: “I think we wanted to show our fans that we can be a metal band and a rock band, and that we can also write songs that have writer dynamics. I still think we’re doing everything within all the realms of what QUEENSRŸCHE is known to be doing. This record is just another extension of that for us.”

Even with eleven gold and platinum plaques and several Top 10 hard rock anthems woven into the very fiber of the genre, Queensrÿche won’t relent. In fact, they are in the throes of a jaw-dropping creative resurgence.
