The most controversial band in the world, King 810, unleashed ‘War Outside’ ahead of their debut headline UK tour! Check out the stunning live video from the Rockstar Energy Mayhem tour filmed this summer here:

Busily packing for Delain’s next foray into North America, Charlotte Wessels took time out to chat with The Classic Rock Show about ‘The Human Contradiction’ album, released earlier this year.
Delain are on the eve of celebrating Charlotte’s tenth year with the group – something which is not lost on Charlotte and she makes comment on in the interview – and since signing with Napalm Records they have been able to make and stand by their own decisions. The independence that they have been offered by the label has reaped rewards as ‘The Human Contradiction’ is their most rounded and polished album to date; the songwriting and musicianship is there for all to see and hear.
Charlotte also shared her thoughts on this freedom that Delain now have over their songwriting, as well as her feelings towards the work that the Sophie Lancaster Foundation continue to do in raising awareness of prejudice and intolerance.
This, together with hearing how much Delain are looking forward to returning to North America and later to the UK in November, makes for an interesting interview with one of the most recognised voices in rock, let alone the genre of Symphonic Metal.
Listen to our interview with Charlotte Wessels:
Delain’s album ‘The Human Contradiction’ is out on Napalm Records – buy it here.
Thanks for listening.

When we interviewed Hellyeah’s Vinnie Paul last week – click here for the link – he spoke about Kyle Sanders and Christian Brady joining the band earlier on in the year.
We caught up with Christian Brady in a noisy pub, The Black Heart, located just behind The Underworld venue where they were playing later that evening.
In his first ever interview as a member of Hellyeah, Christian talks to us about how the band have been working together as a unit both on and off stage, touring in the US, Canada, the UK, and how things went as the headline act on The Sophie Lancaster stage at Bloodstock.
Thanks for listening. Come and join us on a Thursday night by tuning into ‘The Classic Rock Show’!
