Elize Ryd of Swedish metallers AMARANTHE has uploaded an audio recording of her singing the NIGHTWISH song “Nemo”. Ryd laid down the vocals for the track in 2006 when the Finnish symphonic metal band was seeking a replacement for Tarja Turunen. Check it out below.

Says Ryd: “I’ve been saving this for a special moment. And now when I became a singer as I was dreaming of… and been travelling all over the world and met fantastic people and also NIGHTWISH on stage. And have such wonderful fans.

“It is a amazing memory from the day when NIGHTWISH sent me a demo with music and ask me to put my voice on it!! So here it is. ‘Nemo’ from the NIGHTWISH audition 2006!!”

Ryd, who has been touring the world as a backing singer vocalist for KAMELOT, filled in for then-NIGHTWISH singer Anette Olzon for a show in Denver, Colorado in September 2012 because Olzon was suffering from fever and vomiting and was forced to spend the night at a local hospital.

In a recent interview, Ryd stated about the Denver gig: “It was a very special thing.

“I love NIGHTWISH and I’ve sung their songs many times for myself. [laughs]

“They asked me if I would be willing to sing for them that night, and we decided that if the audience agreed it was okay for them that I sing, of course I was going to help NIGHTWISH out so they could do the show. At least with some singing so they wouldn’t have to do it all instrumental.”

She added: “It was a little bit like a dream come true for me because I always wanted to sing for NIGHTWISH. [laughs] I did audition for them years ago, so to actually be on stage with them was great. And the response from the crowd really helped. I was almost crying on stage because the people were so supportive.”

Randall Blythe might be the singer for Lamb of God, but Blythe is now showcasing his self-indulgent, super stereotypical British alter ego for their European tour. His name is fittingly… Roger Brilliant. It all started at Bloodstock Festival a few weeks back, when Roger was revealed to the crowd: If Roger Brilliant is about to …

Berkeley isn't often associated with thrash metal, unless you're referring to the living legends, Testament. Since 1986, the band has been delivered hard guitar riffs that can bring any good moshers to the pit. Testament performed "Dark Roots of Earth" for a crowd at Scion Rock Fest 2013. Watch more Scion Rock Fest 2013 clips.

Black Veil Brides hit the UK later this year

Whatever you think of Black Veil Brides, and heaven knows everyone has an opinion on them at least, you have to admire Andy Biersack for classily taking down some bozo in the crowd at the Vans Warped Tour in San Antonio, Texas, who had obviously turned up purely to shout a bit of abuse and be a general wally.

Watch the video below. Like we said, you don’t have to be a fan to see where Andy is coming from here:

Besides challenging the guy to get up on stage, Andy makes a fine point: if you hate a band so much, why are you stood there watching them? Don’t be a wally. Positive Metal Attitude, guys…

Andy and his crew will be hitting up the following venues in December:

DECEMBER
14 – LONDON The Roundhouse
15 – BRISTOL O2 Academy
17 – WOLVERHAMPTON Wulfrun 
18 – GLASGOW Barrowlands
19 – MANCHESTER Academy 
20 – NOTTINGHAM Rock City

Latest BVB album Wretched and Divine: The Story of the Wild Ones is out now.

TO VICTORAAAAAAY!

Sabaton are bloody brilliant. They’re also playing Bloodstock, which is even more bloody brilliant. We shot bassist Pär Sundström and, like a right trooper, he answered them! What a hero.

IS THIS THE MOST METAL-LOOKING BLOODSTOCK LINEUP EVER?

I have not checked out them all. But there is Accept and they are a lot of metal.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO ABOUT PLAYING THIS YEAR?

Its our only UK show this year. So I am looking forward to see if the crowd still remembers us.

WHAT’S THE MOST METAL THING YOU’VE DONE THIS WEEK?

How´s about touring with Iron Maiden?

AND THE LEAST? GO ON, BE HONEST.

I made food, I hate that.

WHO WOULD BE ON YOUR DREAM BLOODSTOCK BILL?

It would have been great to do a show with Iron Maiden in UK so that’s my main request.

ANY CLUES ON WHAT WE CAN EXPECT FROM YOUR SET?

We have a lot to proove to UK and since this is our only chance in 2013 we will go onstage with all energy we can summon. Anyone who have seen us before knows what we can do!

Bloodstock takes place from August 8-11 2013 at Catton Hall, Derby, and features the likes of King Diamond, Lamb of God, Slayer, Anthrax, Gojira, DevilDriver and many more. Get your tickets now from bloodstock.uk.com.
