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 will be broadcast on the Friday NI Rocks Show on 3rd October at 9pm UK time and is now 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 with be transcribed and published here shortly.

FRIDAY, September 26th saw an ambitious metal project take on the urban sports and craft venue, T13. The real shame was that too few turned out, and that the venue proved to be not 'metal-friendly'.

BOOM! From slow burning small town players Audrey Horne exploded into the consciousness of the rock cognoscenti with the 2012 release of Youngblood, a hard rock album that refined hard rock, defined its future and gradually snowballed to more and more success.

Now, in 2014, the Norwegians have pumped up their chests, slung the axes

Evergrey are another band from Sweden, although their sound is more removed from the usual melodic rock inspired bands which have been the subject of many of my recent album recommendations. We know of course that the Swedish rock scene consists of more than melodic rock bands, although it does produce those in great quantity and quality. As I’ve said before, I’m not a big fan of music genre labels and it’s interesting to note the varying labels applied to Evergrey online – from “dark progressive metal” through “progressive metal” to “melodic metal” depending on which website you access! For my purposes, all that matters is that I like what I hear! Evergrey’s “Hymns for the Broken” is released through AFM Records on 29th September and is the band’s ninth studio album since their debut in 1998.

Grand Design are a band from Sweden who have been around since 2006. “Thrill of the Night” is their third album and it is released through AOR Heaven on 29th September. The band has had a fair degree of success with the previous albums “Time Elevation” (2009) and “Idolizer” (2011) and toured throughout Europe, including the FireFest in Nottingham. Grand Design’s music is influenced by that classic 80’s rock sound and “Thrill of the Night” is full of tracks that are instantly likeable with great guitar riffs and addictive choruses.

THERE are those who write off Power Metal. They do so at their peril. For all the sneers, all the wee digs, power metal keeps going, and power metal masters Dragonforce are not the 'Dragonfarce' the metal snobs dub them: they are an outfit that keeps on going, and keeps on selling shows and albums.

The elaborate

EXTREME music in all its forms is challenging to the performers and the audience alike - musically and lyrically the subjects are not for the faint-hearted, but the flip side of this can induce a manic devotion; and with that an intensity that sees both sides in the live experience amply rewarded.

Thus, when a packed Limelight1 in

I posted a recommendation for Faithsedge’s latest album “The Answer of Insanity” back in August, just before its release through Scarlet Records on 1st September.  This is the second release from the band that features Giancarlo Floridia on vocals, Fabrizio Grossi on bass, Alex De Rosso on guitar and Tony Morra on drums. Giancarlo was good enough to answer a few questions for us and tell us more about the band and the new album.
