Interview With Tave Manning of Adrenaline Rush
Interview with Tave
"I'm not a
little girl anymore"
As rock and roll
bands go, Adrenaline Rush has it all. A fantastic lead singer with looks equal
to her vocal prowess. Plus a hard rocking band behind her, with shreds and
riffs that set them apart from other bands of the genre. Hailing from the
musical powerhouse of Sweden, Adrenaline Rush is poised to release their latest
offering "Soul Survivor" via Frontiers Records. Having heard the
album previously I jumped at the chance to discuss with Manning her thoughts on
music, rock, and what is in the water of Sweden.
Congrats on the
upcoming album. "Soul Survivor" has more of a mature sound overall.
Any thoughts on that?
Thanks so much. It's True. Yeah. I love the first album. But
a lot has happened since then. I have grown a lot. The band itself has new
members and I think of myself as more of a grown woman. It's been a couple of
years so I wanted to have that 80's feeling but a little rougher this time. I'm
not a little girl anymore.
Are you a fan of
I love bands like Judas Priest. I wanted this album to
follow that this time. I listened to my heart this time. So yeah you can hear
the old Adrenaline Rush but it's definitely heavier this time.
In terms of
touring what are the plans?
We have a release party in Stockholm next week and then we
will be at the Frontiers Rock Festival. It's a great festival. Lots of fans and
bands. We were there in 2014 or so. It's a fun weekend. Nothing is booked
beyond that but hopefully. We will see. We are still at an early stage with
this band. Hopefully we can get to other festivals.
Do you enjoy the
live stage experience as opposed to studio?
That's the plan. I love doing live shows. That's my main
thing. Just give us a call and we will be there. Of course my dream is to play
the states one day. Always been my dream. Hopefully.
Favorite song on
the new album?
That is a hard one. I love Soul Survivor of course. That's
why I named the album after that song. That's me. That is what I stand for.
Stand tall and listen to your heart and do the things you like and love. Be a
soul survivor. That’s my fave and then depends on my mood. The first single
"love like poison" is the first song I heard and felt this is the
main song. The direction.
Personally I like
"Don't Wake Me up".
Really? Thank you.
That is probably the oddest track. It's moody and different.
Who are some of
you main influences growing up?
I love the rock and roll scene since I was a little girl but
it's hard to find female vocalists. I love 70's rock and roll. I love Fleetwood
Mac, So Stevie Nicks, of course. Janis Joplin..Joan
jett..Vixen…but my fave is Hanoi rocks and mike Monroe. He is my hero.
How do you feel
about the current state of Rock and metal in general?
You know it is a hard genre to be in. There is not a lot of
money, but I think it is positive. There a lot of really talented rock and roll
bands out there. We are a bunch of crazy kids doing what we love. And we continue
on. Rock and roll is the greatest thing. It's not just about the music it's
about the lifestyle as well.
How do you keep
your voice in shape?
I love earl grey. So I am a tea drinker. I try to be good at
warming up my voice.
Tell us something
about you that your fans would never guess.
Hmmm. That maybe I started out as a pop singer. That is not
a secret. Since my voice suits that style of music as well. hmmm. I am a real hippy girl at heart. My
friends call me hippy.
listen to that fans wouldn't expect?
Well maybe the harder stuff like priest and so on. I love
What is it about Sweden
that produces so many good bands?
It's the freaking cold. We don't have anything else to do. We
are able to study music at an early age at school here. Or it is something in
the water. I'm still trying to figure it out. We are a small bunch of people
who like it and love it. We are at the same rock pubs every Friday night. We
support each other's bands. It's a cool thing to be part of here.
Anywhere in the
world you would love to play?
Well of course the states. I have family in Brazil so that
would be cool as well. Everywhere. I would love to travel the world. Just
spread my music.
How active are you
on social media?
We are active. We have face book, the homepage, Instagram.
You can follow us there.
Is there a good
and bad with all this access fans have nowadays?
I think it's easier. Pros and cons. I like the mystery side but
it's cool, you can do live chats with fans. If you can separate life from stage
then yeah. .. I am a bit private. You have to have the right balance.
Survivor" releases on Frontiers Records April 21st.

CRY OF THE WOLF MAGAZINE Interview With FRANKIE BANALI Of QUIET RIOT
QUIET RIOT was not the first band that got me into heavy metal. I was already well entrenched in the power and the glory of bands like Sabbath, Saxon, and Dio. But for an impressionable youth the constant nagging from the "cool" kids at school about how lame metal was became very bothersome. Cliched white sneaker wearing future lawyers were constantly picking on me and my metal head friends. QUIET RIOT one day came on the radio and changed all that. Like an asteroid hitting the dinosaurs they wiped away all the so called un coolness about metal and made it mainstream. Suddenly all the jocks were "banging" their heads to songs like "Metal Health", And "slick Black Cadillac". So years later after the heavy smoke has cleared I got the chance to speak with one of the key architects of QUIET RIOT, Mr. Frankie Banali. They are about to release ROAD RAGE on Frontiers Records and it so…

Sabaton was formed back in 1999 in Falun, Sweden when the members of a band called "Aeon" reformed and rearmed for the upcoming first recording in Moon Music Studio. The founding members of Aeon: Rikard, Pär and Daniel Mullback had joined forces with Oskar and Joakim earlier during the year which had seen a few line-up changes and the guys decided on a fresh start and changed the name of the band to Sabaton. These are the same guys you see on stage today.
As a young proto-metalhead living in the hard streets of Riverside, Rhode Island we would all gather at whoever had the latest vinyl release and rock out for hours. Discussing techniques, listening to lyrics, guitar solos. The best albums offered up energy at its purest form. It transmitted from the vinyl grooves right into our little teenage brains. You could literally feel what the band or artist was trying to convey.
Metallica's latest release, Hardwired to self destruct offers up a modern day version of that same energy and spirit from days gone by. It is a powerful statement from a band that many had written off. One song...Now were all dead...that is the only song you need to listen to. But there are many, many more. This is grade a material from a group of artists who managed to capture their energy and channel it through this disc. This is real, this is power, this is the definition of a classic metal album.
Another great sign of a good, solid album is that you can list…
