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!

SIXX:A.M. – James Michael

Sixx A.M.

SIXX:A.M. – Music through Diaries This interview originates from my desire to learn more about a name that’s been going around way less than its objective value would deserve. The three original members (with Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx inevitably standing out) are the core of Sixx:A.M.’s style – but this project is all about something specific: serving as a soundtrack to the former Crüe’s tormented … Leggi tutto

VOLBEAT – Jon Larsen


Elvis Lives ! click sulla bandiera per accedere alla versione italiana I’ve been following Volbeat for a long time and have interviewed them more than once. This is not the first time I’ve come across Jon Larsen, perhaps one of the hardest ones of the group to interview. Jon is the typical drummer. He doesn’t get involved in lyrics, cover artwork and such. Too much … Leggi tutto


Sarah Jezebel Deva

SARAH JEZEBEL DEVA – The Outsider Vampire clicca qui per la versione italiana The name of Sarah Jezebel Deva is commonly associated with that of Cradle Of Filth: for twelve years (1996-2008) Sarah accompanied the British vampyres live with her voice in what is recognised as their golden age with records like “Dusk And Her Embrace”, “Cruelty And The Beast” and “Midian”. But Sarah didn’t … Leggi tutto

DEATH ANGEL – Mark Osegueda

Death Angel

DEATH ANGEL – The Bastard Wolves click per la versione italiana / italian version on the flag The first time I interviewed Death Angel was in 2008 for the release of Killing Season and I was so excited that I could transcribe very little. A fleeting chat of few words with a Californian accent that was really hard to understand and translate. The slang, difficult … Leggi tutto

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
