“Soulbender II” is essentially a re-release of Soulbender’s self titled debut alarm with the addition of four new tracks. However, as I never owned a copy of the original 2004 release, “Soulbender II” is all new and all good to me! The album was released through Rat Pak Records on 30th September. I’ve already included a couple of tracks on the Friday NI Rocks Show – “Slave to Reality” which is one of the new tracks and “Rabbit Hole” which is one of the re-mastered original tracks.

EXTREME music, in its purest form can be a cathartic experience, a damn good excuse to step outside the fucked up, mundane life that shrouds our lives in the servitude of being a wage slave, scanning the latest war and horror news from around the world.


Death metal holds a unique place in extreme music, its dense, lyrical

THE History of Heavy Metal...it's a big fucking topic, spanning generations of bands, a growing multiplicity of genres and sub genres and a cult following somewhat obsessed with the music that inspires copious alcohol intake, insane high acts of stage diving and entering mosh pits.


Is this a suitable topic for comedy?

Framing Hanley released their third album “The Sum of Who We Are” earlier this year and kick off a tour of Ireland and the UK in the Oh Yeah Centre, Belfast on Friday 24th October. The band originally formed in Nashville back in 2005 and has built up a strong fan base in Europe. The current line-up consists of Kenneth Nixon on vocals, Ryan Belcher and Brandon Wootten on guitars, Chris Vest on drums and Jonathan Stoye on bass. Nixon was good enough to answer a few questions for Rock Radio NI ahead of the upcoming gig in Belfast.

THE past few months have been something of an upward trajectory for Darkest Era as they toasted the release of their latest album, completed a brief set of slots with Amon Amarth and are wrapping up a UK tour in what they say is their "adopted hometown".

IT has been claimed that heavy metal has the ability to laugh at itself - whether it be Manowar, Spinal Tap, pouting black metal wannabes or the ridiculousness of some of the stage props we know that outside the genre it's laughable; and we also know that to us it makes sense.

At No 1 on Guitar World’s list of “Ten Female Guitarists You Should Know” is Nita Strauss. She’s recently become known to many as the new guitarist in the Alice Cooper Band, but many will have been aware of her work with bands such as Femme Fatale and the Iron Maidens before that.

I spoke to Nita via Skype on 26th September to talk about working with Alice Cooper, her previous work, future plans and a few other things.

 

The interview was broadcast on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 3rd October but  is still available from the On Demand Player - http://www.rockradioni.co.uk/hosts/ni-rocks-friday-rock-show.html (the show uploaded on 29th Sept). The Show also features tracks from Alice Cooper, Femme Fatale and Iron Maiden as well as a few more. The interview has been transcribed below.
