Some brand new music from Voodoo Six - the first release from their new album "Fluke".

You may have heard that that the band have finally unleashed some new music on the world. If you listen to Planet Rock, you will know that they have been playing "Take The Blame" over the last month or so, and now the band have released a five track digital EP entitled "A Little Something For You" including Hi Resolution artwork.

This is available exclusively via the official website by clicking here at the very reasonable price of £3.99. Also available is a T shirt package. The tracklisting is as follows:

Something For You
Where You Want Me
Take The Blame
Live Again
Long Way From Home

Competition - get your name on the new record

Voodoo Six are pretty excited about their new album and judging by the feedback they have been getting back from people who have already bought the EP, it seems you guys are too, so the aim is to make sure that as many people as possible get to hear the music.

With that in mind, the band want you to help us tell the world about the forthcoming album release, and to give you a bit of encouragement, they have decided to launch a competition to see who can spread the word the furthest and the fastest. This is what you do:

· Go to the website homepage by clicking here.

· In the top right hand corner you will see a streaming player featuring the new EP. In the bottom right corner of the player, under the "Buy Now" button, click the small buttton marked "share".

· Enter your email address in the top box and then enter the addresses of anyone who you think would enjoy our music in the second box, seperated by a comma and a space.

· Enter a message in the bottom box so people know why you are sending them the player - and you are done.

Once a week the band will publish a table of the top sharers both in an email, and on their various online sites, then at the end of the four week period the winners will be published. There is no limit to the number of people you can send it to, but duplicate email addresses only count as one.

The more tecnologically minded of you can also post the streaming player on your own Facebook and MySpace pages by clicking the embed button (next to the share button), and copy and pasting the embed code.

Competition prizes

Now the good bit.

Top 100 sharers will all receive an exclusive two track digital download and a thank you video message from the band.

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.
