Alissa White-Gluz – Arch Enemy

Interview by Tony Cannella

Arch Enemy’s popularity continues to grow in the metal stratosphere. When the band released their latest album “War Eternal” in 2014 there was a wait-and-see attitude as there usually is when one of the key members gets replaced. Enter lead vocalist Alissa White-Gluz. She had enormous shoes to fill in replacing the iconic Angela Gossow who stepped away from the band to focus on managing Arch Enemy. Before stepping down she hand-picked Alissa as her replacement and the results have been phenomenal to say the least. Recently, Arch Enemy was out headlining the Summer Slaughter tour throughout North America. It was at the tour’s stop in Worcester, Massachusetts where I was able to catch this tour and conduct an interview with Alissa. Here is what she had to say…

Hello Alissa. Thank you for joining us. So, you are currently out on Summer Slaughter tour. How has it been going so far?

Good. It just started. It’s always a little chaotic when you have so many bands on one tour. It’s pretty uncommon to do tours like this but we’re working out the kinks and getting into the rhythm now, so it’s going well. Continue reading »

Kamelot – “Haven” (2015)

Label: Napalm Records

Review by Warren Mayocchi

Kamelot have a distinct sound and on their second album with their new singer Tommy Karevik the sound remains. This is the third time that I have attempted to write this review. I have been having problems because the individually the songs sound better than when listening to the entire album. After some thought, I think that with the removal of a few songs the album would be stronger and allow the greatness that is present to shine. Too many of the songs are too similar and lyrically there are some awkward lines both in how they are sung and in content. To my ears there are also moments where the transition between symphonic and metal elements seems forced. So as an experiment, which songs to remove? I remove “Liar Liar”, “Veil of Elysium”, and “End of Innocence” and listen again. This took out the sameness and the lyrical content that did not work for me. Continue reading »

Charlotte Wessels – Delain

Interview by Tony Cannella

The Dutch band Delain have been on tour with Sonata Arctica and Xandria supporting their killer new album “The Human Contradiction”. I recently had a chance to sit down with vocalist Charlotte Wessels. She went in depth with the new album, tour and lyrics among other things. One thing I came away with after our conversation is that Charlotte is not only super talented but she is extremely intelligent. Read on…
 
Thank you for taking the time to talk to us again. How have things been going so far with the tour with Sonata Arctica and Xandria?

It’s been going great. This is the 4th date of the tour, so we’re really getting into it. It’s a really cool package, so I’m very happy so far. Continue reading »

Arch Enemy – “War Eternal” (2014)

Label: Century Media

Review by Tony Cannella

When lead vocalist Angela Gossow decided to step down from her post fronting the extreme metal legends Arch Enemy it came as a huge shock. Who would fill her sizeable shoes? Well that turned out to be ex-The Agonist front lady Alissa White-Gluz – as it turns out it was a great choice.

The opening intro “Tempore Nihil Sanat (Prelude in F Minor)” opens the album and has a horror movie vibe to it before segueing into the relentless assault of “Never Forgive, Never Forget” and this is how the 10th Arch Enemy album begins. From the start it is obvious that the transition between vocalists is seamless and musically the band continues to mix death metal and thrash with the same technical proficiency that the band has always displayed.

Charlotte Wessels – Delain

Interview by Ary R

Considered as one of the leading figures of the metal music panorama nowadays, Delain has gained a huge fame that a few female fronted bands has got in these latest years. After a really bad episode that has affected the band in the past, this quintet from the Netherlands is going to introduce the audience the brand new record called “The Human Contradiction”. In order to present this baby creature, we had the chance to talk to the singer of the band, the beautiful Charlotte Wessels, who has spoke to us about this brand new album.
 
Delain this year comes back on the music scene with a brand new album. Let’s talk about the album title which is a very curious one. Would you mind explaining us the meaning of the title itself? If I’m not mistaken you love reading, and this album somehow is related to Octavia Butler. Continue reading »
