  WE ALL DIE (LAUGHING)
'Thoughtscanning'
(Kaotoxin Records)
Release Date: 14th January 2014


Ian Sutherland

we all die laughing

The cheerily named We All Die (Laughing) are a French/Bulgarian duo who have decided to make, in their words, an album mixing progressive Metal, progressive rock, dark jazz, depressive black Metal and even some soul music! This ambitious project has resulted in this debut EP which on my version features one 33 minute track!

After reading the description above I wasn't sure to expect but having listened to the EP a few times now what has been created here is a fascinating and epic piece of music. Starting off with some Floyd-like atmospheric bass and guitar lines it rises and falls through sections of death Metal screaming and thrashy Metal, ambient gentle parts with almost crooning vocals and sold Metal riffing seamlessly.

Any piece of music this long usually struggles to keep your attention but this isn't an issue here as you're never sure where it's going next and repeated listens reveal new and interesting musical passages you missed the last time.

It's not all perfect as the "singing" vocal sections reveal a voice that isn't so impressive but I love the epic scale and sound of 'Thoughtscanning' though and would like to hear the bonus track on the official release, a cover of Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black' which sounds like an intriguing choice of cover song.

Verdict:

If you've listened to the likes of Tool or My Dying Bride or Moonsorrow and enjoyed it when they get epic and hit an atmospheric groove then this EP is for you. Dark and epic and full of surprises and ideas it's an impressive debut.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

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

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.
