Interviews
Skyforger

Bad English: This may be a weird question, but how do you envision the Latvian metal scene if bands such as Skyforger and Heaven Grey had never existed?

Peter Kvetkovskis: Well, there was always and still is another bands around - the metal scene here is quite big enough even without Skyforger or Heaven Grey. The question is how unique and original those bands are, but that's another topic to talk about I guess. It is very hard to make your name worldwide if you are from such a small far away country like Latvia is. You must be somehow original to stand out from millions of bands playing all around the world. Also you must be in right time and right and luckily for us we were. I could guess that many people here, who maybe tried to play something in a vein we do, just gave up only because they don't wanted to be called copy of Skyforger - who knows, but I think we have enough of good bands here to keep metal scene going and new promising bands have been seen lately.

Bands
Aftershok

Aftershok is a four-piece classic metal band that showcases aggressive guitars and powerful, melodic vocals. Their sound is firmly grounded in the best traditions of classic metal and hard rock, but through their commitment to strong songwriting and musicianship they have forged a style that is all their own.

Aftershok began in the summer of 1996 as a collaboration between vocalist Vic Hix and guitarist George Mihalovich. Vic and George M quickly realized that they shared the same vision for a classic metal/melodic hard rock band, and made the decision to concentrate on developing the project until they found just the right individuals to solidify the line-up. Fast-forward a few years; veteran drummer George B. came aboard in late 1999, and bassist Nick G. joined in early 2000. The band was complete, and after months of intense rehearsal, Aftershok began to perform in late 2000.

Bands
Mary-Ann

To/Die/For is band from Kouvola, Finland-based quintet originally began life as the oddly titled Mary-Ann. They released a few self-financed mini CDs under this moniker, which helped them secure a deal with Finland's Spinefarm Records. After a slight line-up and name change, they released All Eternity (their debut album) in 1999. Immediately seeing the potential and appeal for gothic rock fans, Nuclear Blast quickly licensed the record for European territories outside of Finland.
