Underground journalist Ryan Bartek has just released chapter one of his forthcoming book “Fortress Europe (The Big Shiny Prison Vol. II)” as a free PDF download. "Fortress Europe: London" features interviews with members of Killing Joke, Pantheist, Hello Bastards, Armed Response Unit, Fen, Flowers of Flesh and Blood, as well as a barrage of industry insiders and renowned metal/punk journalists.

Also included in this PDF download is the prologue to “Fortress Europe,” which was released earlier this year and features face-to-face interviews with Polish death metal legion Hate, Grecian black metal kingpins Rotting Christ, and the USA’s own blackened extreme metal machine Lecherous Nocturne.

Report

Metalheim Festival 2011

The week leading up to Metalheim festival was taut with anticipation, and excitement. The festival is hosted by the wonderful people at Metalheim Productions and takes place in two cities, Helsinki and Oulu. Each day featured five bands, and they travel between the two cities so we all partake in the epicness of the tour.

This year’s agenda boasted a fantastic lineup both days. Naturally, the week dragged on and on; and with a brand new Canon eos just waiting to be used, it felt like eternity until Friday. I finally arrived at Nosturi, and was lucky indeed to be able to interview Ville Sorvali of Moonsorrow, and later met with Kari, Gunnar and Terji of Tyr. Read the interview with Ville Sorvali here, others coming soon! More...
