Swedenrock Festival Poster
Wow! This is the sixth time that the Finnish Metal-Rules squad makes an invasion to the mighty Swedenrock festival. Over 60 bands descended on the the southern area of Sweden for a festival that turned out to be nothing but an utter blast! The bill of Swedenrock festival 2006 covers a wide range of metal styles and even classic rock stuff (Journey and Molly Hatchet). Therefore, there was at least something for everyone who attended the festival. As usual, the whole festival was once again sold out when around 20,000 people arrived at the area every day. The Swedenrock festival has always had tremendous luck with the weather as once again the gods of weather blessed this rocking metallic heaven on the earth with an extreme hot and sunny weekend that burned red the skin of several festival goers.

As stated in the first sentence, this is the sixth time that the Swedenrock festival has been featured in the site of Metal-Rules.com, so it is quite logical for us to give a real in-depth article of several bands performing at Swedenrock. Enjoy !!!
Marc Storace
Swiss Band KROKUS have gone through numerous line-up changes but nevertheless they still sound like the same band in a good way. The band did powerful versions of classics “Headhunter”, “Long stick goes boom” and “Screaming in the night” as well as a bunch of new tracks from forthcoming “Hellraiser” album. The new line-up, which consists of remaining member Marc Storace, Dominique Favez and Tony Castell, are now completed with addition of guitarist Mandy Meyer (Asia, Gotthard) and German drummer Stefan Schwarzmann (U.D.O., Accept, Helloween). Singer Marc Storace is still a hell of a kind frontman and he has kind of a charisma that most others just can dream of. Mandy Meyer certainly has no problems to fill his predecessors big shoes and last but not least it has to be said that Stefan is the man on drums. He certainly deserves a special mention because his excellent drumming gave a new, fresh breath, especially for some older stuff. In brief, Krokus put out easily one of the best performances on the whole festival like they did the last time in 2003. Brilliant!
