Metal Hammer’s annual Defenders of the Faith tour is usually a bloody good excuse to catch a whole crop of excellent bands all in one place – this year’s line-up was particularly impressive, with headliners Amon Amarth being backed up by the likes of Carcass, Hell, and Bleed From Within. We got our principal photographer, Mr Gary Wolstenholme, to head on down to Manchester to catch one of the last big metal tours of 2013 do its dirty business all over the O2 Academy.

What do get when you mix four Belgians, Milton Keynes tech metallers, some Welwyn Garden City hardcore kids and Devil Sold His Soul? The Metal Hammer 2012 Razor Tour, of course. And while it’s one of the less obvious four-band touring bills around, Tom Dare thought it looked like a good one, so we sent him off to Camden to review it. From which he came back half-blind.

PROGTOLOGY with James Monteith of TesseracT: #9 – On losing vocalists, winning awards, and bringing it back from the brink

October 17th, 2012

It’s been a bit of a rough year for the guys from TesseracT. We browbeat their guitarist, James Monteith, into telling us the inside story of just what’s been going on with them these last few months.

What is Iron Fist magazine? Well, the short answer is that it’s the brand spanking new metal magazine for die-hard metallers, coming at you from September 2012.
