  ARTILLERY ANNOUNCE US TOUR, LINE-UP CHANGE AND MORE
12th April 2012

artillery



Artillery are going to the USA for the first time in their career! Artillery will play gigs in May in New York City and at the Maryland Death Fest in Baltimore. Along with the band Exumer they will then move to South America to play in Argentina, Chile and Brazil. At the end of the year the band will return to USA to play on the 'Barge To Hell' cruise ship from Miami, Florida to the Bahamas (December 2012).

Year 2012 marks the 30th anniversary of Artillery. A celebration party will be held on May 4th at Kings and Lions in Copenhagen with some special guests and prizes. The gig at Lions and Barrels will also be the last Danish gig with the founder member Carsten Nielsen who has decided to leave the band for personal reasons.

Carsten Nielsen: "For personal reasons I have chosen to leave the Danish Thrash Metal Band Artillery. It's something I've thought about for a long time and I have already informed the guys in the band and I can announce that the last shows I'm playing with Artillery will be in South America.

"And to all the nice people I have met during my time in Artillery, I will just say a huge thank you to; I will never forget the good reception and response I have received.

"After the last show I will take a little break and then I'll probably go back to my roots and try to find some guys in the Copenhagen Area who want to play some good old fashioned Punk Rock together with me..."

Artillery's most recent album is 'My Blood' from 2011 (Metal Mind Productions).

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.

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.
