While trading Angra + Shaman files with Mirette, she sent me a few songs by a guy called Yannick Noah – it’s french reaggae, apparently! Me lovesss!!!! She sent me 3 songs: "J’aime les gosses", "La voix des sages" and "Simon Papa Tara". I highly recommend it!
Bruce Dickinson and Dream Theater together?! Yep, Mr. Maiden will interview the prog guys on Saturday May 26th, you can listen to the show on the internet between (6 and 9 pm – Brazilian time or between 9pm and midnight – UK time) on this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music/shows/bruce_dickinson/?focuswin
So the new Nightwish singer has been revealed…her name’s Anette Olzon and you can listen to her old band here: http://www.myspace.com/alysonavenue You can also listen to a 38-second sample from the Nightwish single Eva on their official website…but I don’t recommend it The woman’s voice is cool, but the song…blah. Nightwish is long gone for me…I liked them up until Wishmaster.
Yaaayyyy, Forgotten Tales is playing on the Festival d’Été in Québec (more info on the artists participating, fees and other festival-related news, check http://www.infofestival.com)!!!! Their show will be on July 12th at 8 pm (Canadian time, sure)!!! I won’t be there though… HOWEVER, it’s a very big festival, and a great conquer, given they don’t choose metal bands to play in popular festivals like that, who knows why… AND at 9:30 pm on the same day, exact same place, Hammerfall!!! If you’re into metal and you’re planning to go to Canada soon, this is the time my friend…!!! Meanwhile, you can listen to some of Forgotten Tales songs on their website: http://www.forgottentales.com
Last but not least…Dios Salve a la Reina!!! I had never heard of it…it’s a Queen tribute band from Argentina. They just came to Brazil (I never even heard of that concert neither, dammiiitttt!!!) and apparently it’s the best Queen cover band in the world…in fact they’re so good that those who’ve seen Queen live back in the Freddie Mercury days SWEAR they’re basically alike!!! Anyway, even if they weren’t so good, just the setlist would have been enough to make me go to that concert (the review’s written in portuguese, if you want to read it, go to http://whiplash.net/materias/shows/061072-diossalvealareina.html)…check it out:
