'Awakened', which marks the group's sixth studio album, is garnering early critical acclaim. In his 4/5 star album review for Alternative Press magazine, writer Jason Schreurs hailed: "Screamer Tim Lambesis has never sounded better than on a Metal anthem like 'Overcome,' his shattered scream completely ripping faces. 'Awakened' is the best As I Lay Dying album you can point to as Metal both modernized and maximized." (October 2012).

Elsewhere, in his 4/5 star album review for Artist Direct , Rick Florino singled out the preview track 'Cauterized' as: "An unshakable anthem, the song is the best kind of aural assault and battery from one of Heavy Metal's most dynamic outfits. Morphing from a steamrolling six-string storm courtesy of Nick Hipa and Phil Sgrosso, the track shifts into a polyrhythmic crusher fuelled by drummer Jordan Mancino and bassist Josh Gilbert's immortal groove. Tim Lambesis seamlessly segues from a gruff growl into one of the group's tightest and toughest clean choruses to date."

Florino adds: "'Cauterize' is a Metallic remedy of the highest order. As I Lay Dying prove to be a genre leader by progressing while pummeling, and it's evidence that Awakened is another level altogether. They're set to wake up the genre with a landmark album." (September 2012)

For 'Awakened', the San Diego-based band, Nick Hipa (guitar), Tim Lambesis (vocals), Jordan Mancino (drums), Phil Sgrosso (guitar) and Josh Gilbert (bass) holed up in the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO with renowned rock producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents) and mixer Colin Richardson. 'Awakened' marks the follow-up to the 'Decas' EP (2011) which reached #2 on the iTunes Rock Chart.

The group's last LP, 2010s immensely successful 'The Powerless Rise', debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #10. 'The Powerless Rise' also reached #2 on Billboard's Independent Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard's Hard Music Albums Chart.

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.
