Baest, Copenhell 2019

The beast (Baest) cemented their superiority in death metal Hades stage, Friday: When it comes to old school death metal, there is none greater than the Danish band BAEST right now. I have seen Baest live once before, in the Pumpehuset venue in downtown Copenhagen, where they also tore the place a new one, but today they really took it to another level. The big black fabric with the Baest… Keep Reading

Rob Zombie, Copenhell 2019

Brought the real party – a showoff in showmanship Helviti stage, Friday: When Rob Zombie and his team mates, guitarist John5, bassist Piggy D and drummer Ginger Fish takes the stage on Copenhell’s biggest one, it’s a matter of seconds before the ghoul-dressed bunch takes over the entire festival.

The Psyke Project, Copenhell 2019

A masterpiece in hardcore perfection! This. Was. Freaking. Epic!!!

Album Review: Black Oak County “Theatre Of The Mind”

The Reinvention of a band Black Oak County (DK) was predicted great success by yours truly, when their self titled debut album came out in early 2017, and everyone was blown over by leadsinger/guitarist Niels Beier’s poweful vocals, adding that southern flavour. As the year progressed, and the band seeing their star rise steadily, Beier chose to leave the band, due to personal issues, leaving fans and, not least, the… Keep Reading

Black Oak County are back!

New singer and new single! Following singer Niels Beier’s exit from the band in late 2017, it was unclear how the band would proceed, and if they were even going to. Beier’s extremely strong vocals were a very strong selling point for the Danish hard rock band. But the remaining members, brothers Jack & Mike Svendsen (guitar & drums), and bassist René Hjelm, have brewed something up in all secrecy… Keep Reading

Danko Jones, Copenhell 2018

Pandæmonium stage, Friday 22. June: I had never heard of Canadian Danko Jones, until during Ozzy Osbourne’s show earlier that night, where a friend said, “Danko Jones are three guys playing red-hot rock’n’roll with a punker-fuck-you-attitude. No frills, just seductive energy. You HAVE to go see them!” And so I did, and my friend was right. He was SO right! The Canadian trio is a weird ensemble, with nothing but… Keep Reading

Tremonti, Copenhell 2018

Third Time’s a Charm – but hard to fit in >Hades stage, 3.00pm, Friday : Mark Tremonti may be known for many things, including Creed and Alter Bridge, but the guitarist proved that he can certainly hold his own when it comes to performing.

Crossfaith, Copenhell 2018

The lovechild of genres and exploding busses! Pandæmonium stage, Friday 22. June: On their way from the Magazine Generali festival in Italy, it didn’t look good for the Japanese powerhouse.

Arch Enemy, Copenhell 2018

The Brutality That Came To Us Hades stage, Thursday 21. June: What…just…happened? The Swedish brutality exploded on the old B&W ship yard, as Alissa White-Gluz and her gutsy growling vocals ripped Copenhell a new one. As Motörhead’s “Ace Of Spades” blasted through the speakers, the band came on stage, gripped their instruments, and just started playing. As in, igniting a nuclear weapon. A careful and short selection of tracks, from… Keep Reading

The grateful band > Helviti stage, Friday 22. June: The Seattle monster that is Alice In Chains rocked the 9th. Copenhell edition, for the second time since 2013 With a previous Copenhell show in the bag deemed back then as simply astounding, Friday this year was full of expectations.

Defecto is a band that is everywhere. When they’re not supporting Metallica or Rammstein, they’re touring through Europe and Japan. Now they played the Copenhell metal festival for the second time Hades stage, 23 June: They are also a band that people seem to fail to understand. Personally, I fell into the last category until a year ago, when I started to really listen to the deeper subset of details,… Keep Reading
