Triaxis announce a brand new album for release on Rocksector Records on 8th October, whilst also being confirmed for a further appearance at Bloodstock Open Air on 11th August.

Entitled 'Rage And Retribution', the album will be the band's second, following on from 2009s self-released 'Key To The Kingdom'. "You'll reap what you sow..." is a prominent lyric taken from 'Black Trinity', the lead track from the new album, and if there's any truth in that phrase then rich rewards await Triaxis in return for their endeavours with this record.

Formed in 2006, Triaxis developed steadily until the first album was released to widespread critical acclaim. The band hasn't rushed to release a second album but what they have now is well worth waiting for, with 'Rage And Retribution' a clear step forward in composition, production and musicianship.

Guitarist CJ Hale has this to add: "This album represents 18 months of hard work and passion for our music and we're immensely proud of the result - we believe people will be pleasantly surprised. It demonstrates a technical and heavier side to our music, without straying from the style familiar to our original fans.

"From a production point of view, James Stephenson has done an incredible job. We can't wait to get the album out there and ultimately get back out on the road!"

In the live arena Triaxis plays SOS Festival in North Manchester on Saturday 21st July & has just been confirmed for a return to Bloodstock Open Air on Saturday 11th August.

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.
