The HMW adventure began in Italy in 2003, but we often feel the need to have something to read in other languages too, and we decided in this session to think about foreign metalheads. You are welcome!

IRON MAIDEN – Senjutsu

Iron Maiden

Every year tackling a title like Iron Maiden gets heavier and harder. What to expect? What to say? What am I listening to! Needless to deny. Like a child who opens a present at Christmas, it’s easy to be influenced, willingly or unwillingly, by the emotion of being among the first to hear and judge an album awaited by all (or almost) the metal world. … Leggi tutto

Helloween – Dani Loeble

HELLOWEEN – THE EAGLE HAS LANDED We’ve had several opportunities in the past to interview some of the seven members who now are part of the new Helloween. But to understand what we have in our hands today we have to go back with the memory to the first times we listened to the Hamburg Pumpkins. Each one of us maybe has his own favourite … Leggi tutto

IRONBOUND – The Lightbringer

Ironbound

Preface The main reason for heavy metal’s existence until nowadays, almost 50 years after its birth, is its groups persistence to traditional metal forms. The fact that so many bands emphasize for the traditional ‘80s & ‘90s metal sound, contempting modern trends, has created a core of die hard fans who, all together (bands & fans), have contributed to the revival of the retro movement … Leggi tutto

Ария – Сергей Попов / Михаил Житняков / Владимир Холстинин

Ария

Ария – Русские Улицы Роз “Ария” – одна из самых известных российских хэви-метал групп, что заслужила в народе имя “Русской Iron Maiden”. Вы уже имели возможность прочитать о них на страницах HMW.

Мы встретились с тремя членами группы ради беседы, в ходе которой мы смогли узнать лучше, как много стоит за такой большой группой, … Leggi tutto
