Giada Etro – Tystanden


Interview by Miriam C.

Tystnaden is probably one of so many “underrated bands” Europe-wise, despite having what it takes to hit the big time in this difficult area, also thanks to a constantly evolving fresh and innovative sound. On the occasion of Go4Rock, we had a little talk with Giada Etro, a.k.a. Jade, the new frontgirl of this six-piece band from Udine (Italy), who reveals us some behind-the-scenes-activity about the new album, “Anima” and she also talked about her cooperation with the Croatian doom metal band Ashes You Leave.
Maybe I’m asking the wrong person, given that you joined the band a short time ago. Maybe I’m hindering you, but I wanted to know what is your opinion concerning the latest album, “Anima”. What do you think about it?

To me, it’s a wonderful record! I’m very proud to be able to perform myself in it, also because it had a great response with the reviews on a national and International basis. I like the songs, of course I do like the previous albums, although there has been a turning point here: the style is slighty different, but I must say that I’m really happy! My favourite track is “Mindrama”, the second single, it’s gutsy and the album is a truly pleasure to sing. Continue reading »

Raskasta Joulua is a Finnish project that was born 10 years ago and its main inspiration leads to USA’s  Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Triosphere – “The Heart of the Matter” (2014)

Label: AFM Records

Review by Tony Cannella

There is always a place for all kinds of metal genres, sub genres and sub genres of sub genres. It’s all good and there is so much good stuff out there. I love it all, operatic metal, symphonic metal, extreme metal, but to me it is always great to hear a band that just gets back to basics plays metal. Just straight-forward in your face behind a wall of guitars metal; in that case the Norwegian band Triosphere is like a breath of fresh air. With their 3rd album – and first in 4-years – “The Heart of the Matter” the band is in top form and seems to be really hitting their stride.

The opening track “My Fortress” has an Iron Maiden vibe to it. The song is spurred on by wall of relentless riffs and a sort of galloping rhythm that Maiden has been known for. The relentlessness continues on the powerful second track “Steal Away the Light”. Continue reading »

Devin Townsend Project – “Z²” (2014)

Label: Century Media Records

Review by Tony Cannella

Devin Townsend is one talented dude. I don’t think that’s really a revolutionary statement. He’s a multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, showman, multi-tasker, all of the above and more, not to mention he’s got a wicked vocal presence. He’s also played with a myriad of bands and projects over the years. His latest round of aural assault is the 2-cd, 2-hour extravaganza, entitled “Z²” (short for “Ziltoid 2″). In addition to Devin, the album features a multitude of guests including Anneke van Giersbergen, Dominique Lenore Persi from Stolen Babies and WWE superstar Fozzy and frontman Chris Jericho among many, many others.

Each disc has its own title. Disc 1 is entitled “Sky Blue” and disc 2 is called “Dark Matters”. Continue reading »
