  ASHES YOU LEAVE SIGN ENDORSEMENT DEAL WITH LANEY AMPS
12th June 2012

ashes you leave



Croatian doom Metal legends Ashes You Leave have inked an endorsement deal with one of the world's biggest manufacturer of amplifiers, UK's Laney.

Ashes You Leave was formed back in 1995 and have released five albums since. Their new record, 'The Cure For Happiness', also brings a new AYL sound that combines the warmth of traditional doom and the sound of modern Metal. To fulfill this task, lead guitarist Berislav Poje uses one of the most famous Laney models, VH 100 R and GS 412 IA cabinet. Rhythm guitarist, Matija Rempesic, uses the Laney's newly introduced model Ironheart IRT120 and it's cabinet IRT 412. 'The Cure For Happiness' is due to be released by the end of 2012.

Laney Amplification was founded on September 1st 1967 by Lyndon Laney who started building amps for his friends in his parent's garden shed. Some of Lyndon's first customers were local Birmingham-based guitar players such as Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath.

Since then Laney set a new standard for Metal sound. Soon all those who wanted, a more Heavy Metal guitar sound than other popular amplifier manufacturers offered turned to Laney.

Laney's artist roster features some of the most prominent names in the Metal genre: Tony Iommi, Sharlee D'Angelo of Arch Enemy, Mercyful Fate and Witchery, Kiko Loureiro of Angra, Adam Dutkiewicz and Joel Stroetzel of Killswitch Engage, Linde of HIM, Mattias 'IA' Eklundh and many more.

The band would like to take this opportunity to send warm regards to everyone at Laney and their Croatian distributor Music Centar, especially Mr Igor Bistrovic. Thank you all for your confidence in the band and demonstrated support!




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 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.
