Answer With Metal – www.facebook.com/#!/answerwithmetal

___________________________________

ABOUT: Spread The Metal Fest was inspired by STM Records owner Matt Day, whom previously worked for HSF as a volunteer and decided it was time to give back to the community and help an organization and cause that promotes awareness of heart disease along with financial support. 


About: Spread the Metal Records is an artist-oriented label.

They recognize the commitment of all those who have signed with them and those who continue to support them in other ways. A label is only as strong as its artists, and indeed the job of the record label is to create an environment where they can pursue their artistic vision. That means giving straight answers, holding themselves accountable, taking responsibility for their mistakes, and recognizing their own limitations.

STM believes in every release that they put out and they have more respect for the fans than to expose them to a sub-par album. STM demands the best from themselves, and so they can’t accept any less from the bands that they represent.

The band will be performing songs from their acclaimed 1984 debut album Fit for Fight and founding member and guitarist Mike “Wlad” Koch says “it’s great to be playing the old songs along with one or two new ones, even though we couldn’t get the whole band back together for various reasons it’s exciting to be able to bring our music back to life in front of so many people”! And the band plans to continue to play live after this event so watch this space.

On stage with Mike Wlad will be 2 other original members of Witch Cross , bass player Jan “Little John” Fields and drummer Anders “AC” Hjort.

The band’s debut album Fit For Fight along with their 1982 single No Angel/Are You There and 19 other demo tracks, spanning the bands early days until their split in 1985, has been released on a 4 vinyl limited collectors album by the American Heavy Metal label Hells Headbangers earlier this year. A double CD with some bonus video with be released in the near future.

Vocalist Kevin Moore Comments: On a personal note, it’s really exciting to be fronting Danish Metal band Witch Cross, taking my pro career full circle, as I began professionally playing in Denmark many years ago. Guitarist Mike and I are also busy writing new Witch Cross material.

KRAMPUS – Joins Heidenfest 2012

Posted in folk metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal festivals, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock festivals, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on March 18, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

In the last couple of years, the Heidenfest turned out to be a unique and not-to-be-missed tour package when it comes to the biggest names in the field of heathen/viking metal and bands offering you the best in between war anthems and drinking horn frenzy! Which is why the 2012 line up looks like the wet dream of every heathen metal warrior again:

Headlining will be mighty genre legends WINTERSUN from Finland! It took mastermind Jari Mäenpää and his brethren exactly one album to write folk and melodic death metal history: “Wintersun” came out in 2004 and will be followed by a new milestone around the tour.

“We are very excited to announce that we are going to be headlining the 2012 Heidenfest Tour in October. There was some setbacks with the album during the winter (again), but as usual we have managed to ram through them. (Big thanks to our management for helping us through the tough times!). I´ve been mixing my ass off and things are going smooth and steady now and the album will be released late summer. Stay tuned for bigger updates about the album (or should we say “albums”, wink wink!)“ Jari and the Wintersun boys, cheers!

Fellow Finns KORPIKLAANI have an equally impressive fan base to boast and with albums such as “Ukon Wacka” (2011) they deliver the goods in a party-friendly “Pelimanni metal” way! Rising German force VARG on the other hand call their troops to war with some powerful pagan metal tunes while Norwegians TROLLFEST up the ante with a healthy dose of black humour – and supreme folky heaviness! TROLLFEST will be releasing their brand new album “Brumlebassen” on August 24 and VARG will unleash their new beast on October 19, right in time for the HEIDENFEST tour!

Opening act on this tour will be Italian modern folk metal outfit KRAMPUS, who won the Rock The Nation award 2011. KRAMPUS offer an eclectic array of folk sounds with the usage of bagpipes, flutes, whistles, violins, and the Irish Bouzouki partnered with the modern metal sounds of heavy guitars, aggressive vocals, and melodic keyboards.

In addition to creating a new breed of sound, KRAMPUS´ focus on their lyrical content while addressing themes such as issues with humanity and nature, and environmental awareness. They´ll be appearing on this years edition of METALCAMP festival in August and the same month they´ll be releasing their long-awaited debut album. Fear the Krampus!

This package already looks flawless – but there are some very special guests yet to be announced! So keep your eyes peeled and check www.heidenfest.eu regularly where you can also order your tickets!

HEIDENFEST 2012 – the ultimate party-program with several highlights, new albums, new music which will spice up your misty Autumn and mood! Cheers!

ROCKLAHOMA 2012 – Bands Listed! A Few Metal Thoughts…

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal festivals, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock festivals, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal with tags , , , , , , , on February 29, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

I guess the above poster says it all. Big name bands. Up and coming bands too. It’s cool that the promoters of Rocklahoma want to “mix things up” with a wide representation of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. From what I’m seeing looking at this Rocklahoma lineup, there is something for just about every Heavy Music fan, both young and (gulp) old. No Death or Black Metal bands on this Rocklahoma bill though, what a shame.

ANTI-MORTEM is a Heavy Hittin’ and Hard Rockin’ band from Oklahoma that kicks some very serious ass. Very serious ass they kick. I’m not one for whining about whose band name is bigger on any F’n festival poster, yet MEGADETH should have their name up at the top. I imagine the same can be said for SLASH and QUEENSRYCHE too. Metal be thy name.
