You can sense it, when you pay attention. Rare times when all the stars align and the metal gods have shuffled the cards perfectly for those who’ve played the game with honesty and sincerity for years.
WLM spoke to Vow of Thorns, but do to tech issues on our end, we had to turn to plan B. We thank Dusting and the guys for going the extra mile, and granting us a mulligan (this time email style). Enjoy!
He wouldn’t say that. He’s too humble. We might say it though. And before Nile took the stage at Summer Slaughter 2016 in Chicago, we talked about why the best of the best with the axe don’t seem to be able to break into the exclusive “guitar gods” category.
I met Dave Davidson in the parking lot by chance. He told me to get a hold of one of the guys inside the venue. No problem. But when I saw Brett Bamberger, Ash Pearson, and Dan Garigulo all hanging together I had no idea we’d all sit down and converse.
Tesla was a large part of many of our lives growing up. With incredible albums like Mechanical Resonance and The Great Radio Controversy, we banged heads to the harder tracks, made moves on prospective lovers to the sweet sounds, and had a blast all the way through.
In this interview we talk to Jay Jay about Metal Meltdown, how bands like Rolling Stones don’t hold up to Twisted Sister live, and how rock is a dead genre. We thank Jay Jay for his honesty and knowledge when it comes to his 40+ years of heavy metal.
There was a time when the master musicians took center stage and whipped killer solos, electrifying the crowd, spotlighting their unique talents and instrument. Billy Sheehan has been wowing us for years, and now he tells us why he thinks this special niche has gone mostly by the wayside.
We had the opportunity to chat with Matt Harvey of Exhumed fame about his supergroup project Gruesome. Matt filled us in on the use of the term “oldschool,” paying homage to the incredible Death, and how you balance the demands of two successful bands.
We Love Metal had the chance to talk with legendary guitarist Wolf Hoffmann of Accept. We cover the new solo project Headbangers Symphony, the possibility of Accept with a more classical sound, and he gives us some news on the preparation of the new Accept album.
