OMEGA 3 – science fiction satire about food ideologies

2015-06-07 // 1 Comment

Cars (carnivores) have been the Antichrist for ages, but now even Ollies (“Egg-eaters!”) hate Vegs (“tomato-worshippers”), and Fishies battle Frux with the ferocity of Djihadists. But the Macs (“macrobiotic crap!”) – the “Opus Dei of nutrition”, aptly clad in black – are the real bad guys. They make no prisoners, everyone knows that. [...]

Review of NORTHMEN – A VIKING SAGA

2014-09-27 // 8 Comments

The sea rages like a wild beast, snow and rain and giant waves batter the longship. “On a shield the Viking sleeps” recites the voice of Thorald (Ken Duken) from the off, while we see the men all but drown. Vikings endure. They survive, they fight like Tyr, their God of War, because when a [...]

Und noch eins für die Viking Metal Fans: Der gebürtige Stockholmer Johan Hegg, Frontmann der Melodic-Death-Metal-Band Amon Amarth, spielt in NORTHMEN – A VIKING SAGA den Wikinger Valli, fast schon eine bedrohliche Figur für den schönen Anführer Asbjörn (Tom Hopper). Auch Regisseur Claudio Fäh hatte mächtig Respekt, als ihm die Idee präsentiert wurde, den Metaller mitspielen [...]

2014-08-21 // 2 Comments

Bye, bye TrueBlood, hello NORTHMEN …. this German/Swiss/Southafrican Viking Saga features Australian actor Ryan Kwanten (True Blood’s Jason Stackhouse). Alas, Ryan is not cast as a Stackhousesque male beauty … Kwanten plays warrior monk Conall and had to have his head shaved for this. At least he gets to show off as a fighter as well [...]

GOTTHARD: Rockin’ on

Ok, I picked my fav song on the new GOTTHARD album: RED ON A SLEEVE (scroll down for the lyrics) sounds like I remember GOTTHARD from the times I saw then rocking the stage with Deep Purple. Nic Maeder sings this heavy metal track with as much honey as steel in his voice. Superb! RED [...]

THE SORROW – Metal from Vorarlberg

2012-12-13 // 1 Comment

Thank you, FM4 … first time I heard about THE SORROW today on my fav radio station. How could I have missed these guys, coming, as they are, from my native Vorarlberg ( most western federal state of Austria, bordering Liechtenstein and Switzerland, Germany and Italy)…. Their style reminds me somehow of my favourite Opeth, [...]
