Steelheart, Through Worlds Of Stardust

Image
Let there be no doubt, Miljenko Matijevic has one of the most powerful and recognizable voices in rock. His prowess with earlier STEELHEART albums proves this and his explosive expression on the soundtrack for the movie rock star solidifies him in the pantheon of rock God vocals.



 This new album is equally on par to become legendary. Every song on this release is chock full of crazy fun loud and powerful rock and roll. Something for everyone. Check out " My Dirty Girl", "You Got Me runnin" and "You got me twisted".




This is pure heavy rock and roll. Pick up this album when it comes out and play it loud.


Through Worlds Of Stardust------9/10 wolf howls











Steelheart is the brainchild of Miljenko Matijevic whose powerful voice and multi-octave range is the heart and soul of the band. Although they were lumped in with the glut of long-haired hard rock bands emerging in the early ‘90s, the band was always more forward thinking than their peers and the 2017 ver…

Niviane The druid King

Image
Niviane is a power house of power metal. It is heartening to see such worthy talent upcoming. This band and its music is sure to rise to the top of the american power metal scene. Soaring vocals and killer thunderous riffs. Guitar interludes that will blow you away. You must get this album. Look for a release this November.      Vocalist Norman Skinner is the real deal, honest, and true to his craft. He comes across as a down to earth true fan of power metal who is not plagued by ego problems like other musicians. I had a chance to speak briefly with him. " It comes down to something that I consider listening to over and over." was his response to what makes a perfect song. Later he would mention that he tries not to write songs that sound repetitive just to fill out an album. In regards to the longevity of power metal Skinner relates: " There is that formula thing. There are so many great bands out there. I'm constantly hearing them. Probably more than I will ever get…

LOVEBITES interview for CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE

Answered by miho, bass guitar player
1) Take us through the writing process

I always write riffs first and make a basic demo, then start adding arrangement to complete a song.



2) Does everyone contribute

Our guitarlist mi-ya and myself, along with another songwriter outside of the band usually write music/melody. Each of us brings own music to the table and each band member arrange their own part to complete the music. As for the lyrics, asami and myself write all of our songs. But each band member is a great song-writer, we are going to play other member’s songs as well in the near future.



3) What are the rehearsals like. Do you have set jam times

When we start rehearsing for a tour/show, we first decide how much time we want to/can put into each song and concentrate on bettering the performance one by one. And we play from top to the bottom of our set list for a several times.



4) What makes the perfect song for you

It has to be a metal song t…

How do you get your mind set for European touring

I'm overseas all the time. My job at the Berklee faculty of music allows me that luxury. Usually I'm touring during my vacation weeks. So I'm getting paid vacation time and touring money. As long as there is coffee and beer I'm cool. I find ways to relax. I'll watch guitar videos and then head to a pub.


Are you concerned with safety overseas now?

Wherever you go now it is a concern. I was there when the Manchester thing went down. Ritchie Blackmore was pl…
