Roskilde Festival 2017

Roskilde Festival 2017

Rockfreaks.net has been covering Roskilde Festival for thirteen years in a row. During that time we’ve watched the festival change from what was largely a rock festival in 2005 to a much maligned era of pop, electronic and world music during the Rikke Øxner years and back again to relevancy once Anders Wahrén took over as the head of booking a few years back. The results are astounding: rock and metal is back on the lineup where especially the latter booking is characterized by precise scene-relevant bookings on the smaller scale,...

Metal Church welcomes Stet Howland as new drummer

Posted by AP on 26/07/17

Metal Church has officially welcomed Stet Howland as its new permanent drummer. Commenting on his joining, Howland offered:

After being home for only a few days from possibly the best tour of my life, I received a conference call from Kurdt [Vanderhoof, ed.] and Mike [Howe, ed.], for a split second I thought to myself: 'Oh shit, what did I do?' But my concern quickly turned to an un-removable smile when they asked if I would be interested in being a permanent member of Metal Church.

It's no secret that Metal Church have always been one of my favourite metal bands and that, in my opinion, they are on the strongest ascent of any band in their genre! And given that the band kicks ass live, has an incredible record label, a rabid fan base, relevant new music, recent Billboard chart positions and first week CD sales that rival multi-platinum acts, my answer was an unwavering 'YES'!

On my maiden journey I was blown away by Mike Howe's consistent crowd destruction, Kurdt's ridiculously heavy riffs, Rick Van Zandt's refusal to make even one mistake and my glue-like bond with Steve[Unger, ed.] (it's a well-known fact that Metal Church bass player Steve Unger is one of my closest friends and it was Steve who initially suggested me to the band).

There is understanding, mutual respect and camaraderie present here that is missing in so many "famous" acts. I am honoured to be a member of such a group and will do m best to deliver strong performances both live and in the studio.

Danish fans can look forward to experiencing Howland's drumming prowess next Wednesday, August 02nd when the band opens for Megadeth at Copenhagen venue Store VEGA.

The concert is sold out but you can sign up for a waiting list here. More information is found in the official Facebook event.
