Helloween: Interview & Live Videos 10/2/13

We had the pleasure to sit down and chat with the legendary and idiosyncratic Michael Weikath of Helloween in order to catch up with band and discuss many aspects of their career. We were able to discuss their limited North American touring cycles, the missing presence in North America from Gamma Ray during this Hellish Rock part II tour along with his impressions of their recent Rock in Rio performance and the 70,000 Tons of Metal appearance as well. We were then able to catch up on the current state of power metal according to Michael. We moved along and discussed the high variety of lyrical themes found throughout Helloween’s catalogue and how they manage to create and accommodate them. We had a unique opportunity to look into a more personal side of Helloween by discussing Andi and Michael’s current residence in Tenerife, Spain and its influence. For last, we briefly discussed the future album and touring plans for the band.

Cellador Interview 10/2/13

Interview with Chris Petersen & Diego Valadez of Cellador at the Gothic Theatre in Denver, CO on Oct. 2nd, 2013

Originally forged at the helm of guitarist Chris Petersen, CELLADOR was conceived with deliberate intention of bringing the European speed and power metal influence to the USA, where the style is virtually nonexistent and unknown. Upon release of their critically acclaimed album “Enter Deception,” Cellador took on to bring its music to the metal masses of North America, having toured alongside the likes of metal titans Trivium, All That Remains, Bullet For My Valentine, Protest The Hero, and many others. Their touring ventures took the band across the USA to Mexico, Canada, and even off to Japan for an appearance at the Loud Park festivalhttp://cellador.com
