Skullbanger Media: First I want to say thank you David for the opportunity to allow me to ask some questions about Virgin Steele and yourself for my site Skullbanger Media. I want to first say I am a newcomer as a fan. Years ago I heard your song Wings of Vengeance but never looked deeper until just recently. After doing so I was really impressed with not only your songwriting and vocal range but the sincerity you put forth in your songs and performances. It was really refreshing to see someone be as passionate as you are in doing something that I can tell you truly love. Could you maybe go into a bit of your history with music, what inspires you and when you realized this was your passion? Continue Reading

Tämän päivän parasta melodödistä esittävä ruotsalaispartio, Amon Amarth, on hieman salakavalasti kasvanut isot areenat ja jopa jäähallit täyttäviin mittoihin. Jomsviking-täyspitkän teemoilta kiertävä viikinkikatraasi saapui 13. päivä joulukuuta täyttämään black box -formaatilla klubimaisemmaksi rajatun Helsingin jäähallin miltei äärimmilleen. Mukana metallia takomassa olivat virkaveljet Ruotsista, Grand Magus, sekä Helsingistä oman osuutensa kiertueesta aloittanut Behemoth.

The skills acquired during of my 360° musical career, led me to the creation of my record company, TOO LOUD RECORDS. Thanks to this new reality, the artist/band will have a chance to be followed and supported entirely by professionals, throughout all stages of their musical project.
Insomnium on itselleni bändi, jonka otteet ovat parantuneet tasaiseen tahtiin levy levyltä. Uunituoreella Winter’s Gate -täysipitkällä soitto ja laulu alkavat olla lähellä huippuunsa hioutunutta timanttia – etenkin, kun levyn eeppistä 40 minuutin mittaista ainoaa kappaletta siivittää mukaansatempaava viikinkitarina. Tarina juontaa juurensa vajaan kymmenen vuoden takaiseen yhtyeen basistilaulaja Niilo Seväsen kirjoittamaan Talven portti -novelliin. Kunnianhimoiset suunnitelmat kannatti, ja Insomnium piti lupauksensa soittaa kappaleen kokonaisuudessaan palattuaan takaisin esiintymislavoille uuden levyn tiimoilta.

Ah! Sabaton! The band that never lets me down! For me, Sabaton is one of the modern era metal band heroes. They write catchy songs, have a great live show, have a great relationship with their fans and are just FUN to both watch and listen to.

Sabaton have successfully carved out a niche in the metal genre by focusing mostly on military history and with a charismatic singer like Joakim Broden relating the stories of those histories you have a recipe for great success.
