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 »

Comments Off on White Empress – “Rise of the Empress” (2014)

White Empress – “Rise of the Empress” (2014)

Label: Peaceville Records

Review by Tony Cannella

White Empress is a symphonic death metal band which features former members of Luna Mortis, Cradle of Filth and Coal Chamber. The band is fronted by lead vocalist White Empress (AKA Mary Zimmer) and her style ranging from guttural death metal growls to clean singing is a major aspect of this band. She has also surrounding herself with an outstanding array of musicians which include female bass player Chela Harper formerly of Coal Chamber. You can experience their full impact on the debut album “Rise of the Empress”, which is out via Peaceville records.

Even though White Empress is a relatively new band, their members aren’t exactly rookies, having gained quite a bit of experience with various bands over the years. 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 »

Carla van Huizen-Douw – La-Ventura

Interview by Abigail Henry

Carla Van Huizen is the incredible voice behind the Dutch Band La-Ventura. La-Ventura came crashing into the music scene in 2005 with their first album “A New Beginning”and now they are back with their second album, “White Crow”, after several years of hardship in order to see their new project successfully made. We had the chance to speak to Carla about of the events leading up to the albums release and what is to be expected in the future, which includes playing at the infamous Female Metal Voice Festival in October this year.
 
The release of “White Crow” has attracted a lot of attention and deservedly so! How has this been for you personally?

It is really great to see that so many friends and fans from all over the world like the new album! During the recordings of the album we talked about how to set up the promotion campaign and besides letting our promotion manager for the Benelux do his job we realised that we had to start working our way into the social media.
