It was my birthday last weekend, and as part of my celebration I not only got the opportunity to watch one of my friends get married, but I also got a nice little cold to go with it. So the Open Metalcast studios are a little under the weather. But the show must go on, …

On Friday, September 13th I was on site for the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival as it made one of the tours last stops in Irvine, CA. The weather wasn’t too hot, the crowd, although not a packed house, enjoyed all of the bands.

Metal Blast recently conducted an interview with former AFTER FOREVER frontwoman and current NIGHTWISH touring singer Floor Jansen about her REVAMP project as well as her time with NIGHTWISH. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

Metal Blast: Is singing for NIGHTWISH any different than what you used to do with your other bands or it was more like a familiar ground?

Floor: It was more of the familiar. Even though I was asked and directed a little bit, I do have the freedom to give my own ideas. When you start doing it, you have to give a part of yourself, so I couldn’t done it differently. I can’t just imitate the previous singers. It was wonderful to see that the songs really grew on me. I don’t feel like I’m singing someone else’s music anymore. It really feels natural for me.

Metal Blast: By the way, how was the show and filming you did with NIGHTWISH at Germany’s Wacken Open Air festival at the beginning of the month?

Floor: Oh that was so amazing! That was the biggest show for all of us, and with the DVD filming, it was also very exciting. It was such a perfect night. The weather was crazy, but the band was great… We’ve been playing well before, and I don’t want to sound arrogant or something like that, but, I mean, there are times like this when you just know that the band has a good vibe, you know that your sound is locked and you all have this feeling of yes… So that was all there. Add to that the massive sound of a 70,000 audience and it makes you… Wooh, it took me days to come down to earth after that show. [laughs]

Metal Blast: I understand it’s too early to reflect on your time with NIGHTWISH, but how was the ride and experience so far?

Floor: It has been magical and really amazing. I mean, we know each other for ten years, but you never figure when you start working more intensively if it would work or not… Especially since I stepped in a very weird moment, no one knew how things would be, but to see that there’s such a personal and musical connection, that everything is smooth without us trying to force it, it’s just… No one had the time to make any expectations, it just started abruptly and roughly and boom there we are! We were all in the same situation, we had to make it work — and we did! I don’t know if it’s because we started like that or if god knows why, but it has been working really well ever since. I don’t know how the future looks like — none of us do — but I can tell you that whatever happens I’ll be super proud and happy and still very privileged that I’ve been able to work with such wonderful and intelligent people.

Hey up, we just got this rather awesome message from the guys at Hard Rock Hell…

“How you all doing ?

For the record the 26th July, is also our HRH Independence Day

Its also our crazy Black Friday Sale Day….we had to do something to celebrate it

Anyway, hope everything is going well back home and the weather is picking up for the Summer.

Just a small update from HRH HQ…As you’ve probably heard all Royalty & VIP packages have sold out for all events and HRH 7 has completely sold out of all accom just before Download, however we have Hard Rock Packages available to all the Chic brands, namely Hammerfest 6, HRH AOR2, HRH Prog 2, HRH:Blues and our sister brand SFW5.( Sci Fi weekender)

More importantly and as a big heads up, we will be celebrating our HRH Independence day this week as it marks the 6th year of Chic Festivals being an independent promoter. To celebrate this momentous occasion and for one day only, we will be offering all HR packages at a straight 500 GBP plus booking fee, regardless of how many are in the room,… for example every unit, regardless if it’s a lodge, apartment or mobile, all sleep up to 8 people…in other words, if you can get a few friends or family together…they could be experiencing 3 days at any of the above events with accommodation included for as little as 63 GBP per person.

The choice is yours if you want to put, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 in it, obviously the more you allocate the cheaper it is, infact it’s the same price no matter how many you stick in it .

It’s an incredible offer and one we wanted to share with you just before the 26th July as it will only last for 24 hours !!

Basically as HRH Vets and one of our loyal circle, we are giving you a heads up to take what’s available first as it will operate on a strictly first come first served basis…Its all a bit WOW, but if you can get it together soon, give Terri or Fleur a ring on 08700 110034, we can reserve your place at any of these incredible events which are all being held at our HRH base in Pwllheli.


You have two options, you can reserve the room for as little as 100 GBP deposit per room or pay in full, whatever suits your pocket.

Whatever you choose, we just want to make sure you take advantage of this final offer and join us at one or more of the above events.

Take care and hopefully catch up soon

HRH Watchtower

Jason Newsted

Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted, who is currently busy with his new band Newsted, has been diagnosed with “walking pneumonia” and will miss a number of scheduled dates of Megadeth’s Gigantour as a result.

“I’d been feeling a bit under the weather while performing the most recent Gigantour shows, so I went to the doctor on my day off today and I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia!” says the man himself. “So under doctor’s orders, I’m taking a week to rebuild… My apologies to our Canadian brothers and sisters in regions where we will not be appearing this week. I’m gonna work on keeping me alive so together we can keep the metal alive!”

Gigantour 2013 will continue with Megadeth, Black Label Society, HellYeah, Device and Death Division. Debut Newsted album Heavy Metal Music is out August 5.
