    Many power metal bands prefer to linger in the fantastic world of Tolkien and Dungeons & Dragons when they write battle songs, but Sweden's Sabaton prefers to focus on actual, historical warfare. Vocalist Joakim Brodén took a break at last weekend's Rock on The Range Festval to discuss his band's focus on history and the backlash that comes with it...not to mention his thoughts on the American microbrewery scene.

    Alan Doyle often gets associated with Russell Crowe as a musician (he's contributed to several of the Australian's bands) and as an actor (where he's appeared in Robin Hood and other projects). Give the guy a break: Doyle's had a 20-year career with Canadian folk rockers Great Big Sea and he's recently launched his second solo album, So Let's Go. He spoke with Music Times about the inspiration behind the title, how he met Crowe under the most Canadian of circumstances and how, if he'd had his way, he'd be shredding in a hair metal band and not singing Newfoundland sea shanties (with no offense meant to sea shanties).
