Interview: Words That Burn


By: Carla Morton

Formed in the year of 2010, Words That Burn is an Alternative metal band from Ireland. The band’s vocalist and guitarist, Roni, answered me some questions about the band and the upcoming release.

Hello Roni, how are you? 
Hi Carla. I’m great thanks. Good to chat to you.

Tell me when the band was born? 
The band has gone through a few different stages since it started in mid 2010 I think. Back then there was only 3 of us. Myself and Ger (bassist) and a drummer from another local band. We didn’t really have the sound we have today. Mainly down to the fact we came from different bands, one kinda heavy and the other not at all. So there was a lot of ideas and influences there, but it didn’t seem quite right. It didn’t seem to go where I wanted it to go.  We always needed a second guitarist and just round about the time we went into studio for our first EP, Praey, our previous drummer introduced us to Shane our lead guitarist. He brought even more ideas to the table which has become a major influence on our overall sound now.

Interview Death Before Disco


By: Carla Morton

A new Heavy/Rock band in the Finnish metal scene was formed last year in 2014, but this year they will join the studio to prepare their first album. Here is an interview with Samuel Nouveau, the vocalist of Death Before Disco, who have answered a few questions.

Hi Samuel, how things are going?
Actually pretty ok. We are preparing for our first studio sessions.

Tell me a few words about Death Before Disco, when the band was founded.
Death Before Disco was founded in 2014 on a graveyard in Kuopio Finland by myself and the drummer Pecu Cinnari. We were sitting on a bench in a park that is also a cemitary for some old war heroes drinking wine after the bars had closed, and we had some fucking fantastic ideas you will hear on the future albums.

Death Before Disco, what’s behind this name?
A mystery.

THE 69 EYES – Tour Dates For Russia And Scandinavia Announced

Helsinki vampires THE 69 EYES, whose most recent album, X, was released on September 28th, 2012 issued the digital Love Runs Away EP – including two previously unreleased bonus songs – via iTunes on February 1st. It was released during the first leg of an ongoing European tour.

Frontman Jyrki69 has checked in with the following update:

“Thanks again for the latest dear vampires – you really made the first part of our European tour the best ever! I truly think that The 69 Eyes are at our best right now; the set, shows, fans, parties, just everything! But it ain’t over baby, the next we’ll come to Russia and for a little Scandinavian tour (w/ Baby Jane):

1 – St.Petersburg, Russia – Milk Club
2 – Moscow, Russia – Milk Club

10 – Oslo, Norway – John Dee

So, get down and dirty, meet ya at the front row!”

More dates will be announced soon.

The 69 Eyes recently released the video for the single, ‘Borderline’, which was produced by Patric Ullaeus of Revolver Film Company (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, KAMELOT) over in New Orleans. The song comes off the band’s most recent album, X.

Singer Jyrki69 commented about the clip recently: “My favorite music videos are basically all ELVIS movies. What else you need: good music, beautiful girls and exciting location. When it comes to darkness, I think DANZIG has got it in the way I love it – always seductive vixens involved.

To make a video for ‘Borderline’, we thought to keep those mysterious “black widows” from our previous ‘Red’ video there to continue the story. And naturally to have all that fantasy elements of New Orleans and Louisiana there as well. Elvis ’56 photos, his movie King Creole, Midnight Cowboy, Easy Rider, True Blood – those were basically the links and ideas I gave to director Patric Ullaeus.

Needless to tell that he truly got all this and make this video just a modern day cult movie masterpiece. It looks like my comics (if you ever seen them) and all above! Oh, did I ever mention that Russ Meyer’s Beyond The Valley Of the Dolls is also my all time favorites…

Lords Chaz and Eric with legendary DJ Swamp, Southern belles Missus Praline, Athena, Heather and Perle, Mr. Mike Gunn and so on – there’s all these true cult stars who make this one so unique and special. With the Helsinki Vampires of course.

The 69 Eyes’ new album, X, entered the official German Media Control charts at #47. The album entered the album charts in their homeland of Finland at #4.
