New Jersey traditional metallers ARCTIC FLAME ( Metal Shock Finland’s own Mike Paradine is drummer) recently supported the legendary HELLOWEEN at Newport Music Hall, Columbus, Ohio.
ARCTIC FLAME had a special guest vocalist join them for the track “Hey You;” legendary US cult frontman Eric Moore of the GODZ. The song is from the bands “Mongolian” album, released in 1987. ARCTIC FLAME has recorded the song for a GODZ tribute album due out shortly.
ARCTIC FLAME formed in 2001 and have released four albums, the latest being “Shake The Earth” at the end of last year. For more information, check out the album review at this location.
Mike stated the following about the show:
“ Helloween kicked ass…..really good show, completely exciting…There was a real good crowd and they went wild… The one thing was the band was really giving it to the singer behind his back…like making believe they were kicking him in the ass and making fun of his hairline. I don’t know if things were a little hostile between them or if they were just goofing around.
I also had an impromtu meeting with Eric Moore who now wants AF to open a few shows for the Godz and wants to work with me in some way, either for him to sing lead, backgrounds or produce an album in the future. A very cool, down to earth person and we got along very well.”
