For those with a more papery preference for their metal news, issue number nine of Iron Fist is available for purchase as of now…
They’re not the only band still “hungry” for the road, Jim Martin talks to JAY JAY FRENCH from TWISTED SISTER about the making of ‘STAY HUNGRY’ and their upcoming 30th Anniversary tour. And talking of 30th anniversaries, we’ve also got a massive feature celebrating three decades of ‘PSALM 9’ and talk to both TROUBLE and THE SKULL about how they’re continuing their legacy through two different paths.
We also talk to DAN LILKER on the eve of his retirement from touring about the band, and the album, that kick-started his career; ANTHRAX and the making of ‘FISTFUL OF METAL’ and we discuss getting back into the studio with JINX DAWSON of COVEN, who just released her first album in 40 years!
We’re gearing up for BROFEST too, the second edition of the Newcastle festival that celebrates the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, with features from FIST, ATOMKRAFT, VARDIS, BATTLEAXE, SPARTA and GASKIN, as well as the new breed on the bill, like ELIMINATOR, DARK FOREST, CAULDRON, VOLTURE and WITCHTOWER and we also talk to WITCHFYNDE about the release, finally, of their long-lost ’70s demos.
It’s not all about the old though, in this issue we also talk to BEHEMOTH, GRAND MAGUS, MORBUS CHRON, CONAN, THE WOUNDED KINGS,
NOCTURNAL, SLOUGH FEG and THE OATH as well as our usual packed reviews section and a new look news and Into Battle section.
