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!

BLIND GOLEM – Francesco Della Riva

Blind Golem

BLIND GOLEM – Blind Fury BLIND GOLEM recently released A Dream Of Fantasy, one of the best albums of 2021. Heavy Metal Webzine (HMW) had a very interesting interview with the bass player of the band, Francesco Dalla Riva. (HMW): Hi Francesco! Congratulations for your great album! Tell us, when was the first time you ever listened to ‘70s hard rock? Which band was it and … Leggi tutto

WITCH HUNT – Rock ‘N’ Roll Possession

Preface I worship Colombian metal, and heavy metal the Latin America way, in general. Period. Perhaps because Latin American metal bands are among the most irreconcilable keepers of the flame worldwide. WITCH HUNT is a confirmation of what just mentioned. And the most exciting fact is that all of the country’s excellent metal releases lately are from the same label, Rata Mutante Records. A label … Leggi tutto

PORTRAIT – Christian Lindell


PORTRAIT – Look Into The Mirror The day the new Iron Maiden album came out, another very important album came out, but more in the shadows in the same category. Of course they won’t make the history of NWOBHM, but the Swedes Portrait are still enjoying a good success and not only in their country of origin. We unleashed our Ivan Gaudenzi, assisted by the … Leggi tutto

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


ANGSTSKRIG – Behind The Mistery As mysterious as they are eclectic, Angstskrig are the pioneers of Danish black’n’roll. We caught up with them to talk about their debut album Skyggespil and the Danish metal scene. Hi guys! First of all, thank you for the interview and welcome to our site. Hi Michela, it’s a pleasure. Thanks for the invitation. Why did you decide to form … Leggi tutto


Fractal Universe

FRACTAL UNIVERSE – Across The Universe Despite being 30 minutes late at my very first interview ever, Vince Wilquin, singer from Fractal Universe, still managed to be patient and kindly answered a few question about the new record The Impassable Horizon. Let’s start from the beginning: what is the meaning of the title? The Impassable Horizon is a concept album with a dense and involved … Leggi tutto

Sacred Oath – Rob, Damiano and Kenny

Sacred Oath

SACRED OATH – The Judgement Day “Return Of The Dragon” was released in April 2021 and it is the last work of the American metallers Sacred Oath. After reviewing this (great!) work, I was lucky enough to have a chat with Rob, Damiano and Kenny.    RIG: Hi guys, thank you for finding time for this interview. First of all, I hope is all on … 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


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 – 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 всегда старались следовать за творчеством этой недооцененной за рубежом группы. Мы встретились с тремя членами группы ради беседы, в ходе которой мы смогли узнать лучше, как много стоит за такой большой группой, … Leggi tutto
