generation graveyard

Generation Graveyard EP:
Poison City
All Hail The Plague
Murder Rock N Roll

Generation Graveyard are a fierce and feisty metal punk fivesome from Camden and if you haven't heard much about them yet, be assured you soon will.

Already causing waves on the gig circuit with their storming and brutal live shows, this eponymously titled three track EP gives us an all too short taster of the bitter sweet musical tastes and influences from Max, Spider, Phil, Pete and Jonny, sharp, vicious and blisteringly intense.

They kick in with high voltage punk rock riffs and pounding drums on 'Poison City' a bleak and vitriolic portrayal of the capital city with vocalist Max spitting and screaming venom in equal amounts, then 'All Hail The Plague' batters us relentlessly with a barrage of pent up rage, rasping vocals and wailing guitars. 'Murder (Rock n Roll' is a crushing, hardcore track of high speed blitz tempered with a dark, slowly seething undercurrent, a suitable finale for this fine band.

Explosive, passionate and savagely cynical, Generation Graveyard have taken their festering hatred of flippant, vacant and meaningless rock and roll pouting and posturing, beaten it to pulp and brought it kicking and screaming back to life in their hard as nails, vicious punk rock.

A great EP but to see them at their best make sure you catch them live, they're quite something in full unfettered flow. Cracking stuff, and definitely a band to watch out for this year.

Created from a hunger and a thirst for something lacking in a scene overindulged on rock star attitudes and corporate trends. Generation Graveyard veer wildly from crushing hardcore to blasting black metal all spewed forth with 'Dead boys' inspired punk rock venom. Creating their own hybrid of dark heavy rock and roll. Citing bands such as Darkthrone, Amen, Killing Joke and Ministry under their influences.

Their songs modus operandi is celebrating the decay of the urban wasteland and revelling in the Sodom like cities we now inhabit, lyrics focusing on the darker side of human nature such as addiction, crime and the true rock and roll underground.

Gaining notoriety with their explosive violent live shows around the UK, Graveyard are flying the flag for rock and roll how it's meant to be. Wreckless, dark, inspiring and true. With this in mind Generation Graveyard are proving to be the flagship for the new death punk revolution.



Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.


Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.


MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
