Four-piece post-hardcore band Enter Shikari round off 2013 with a hark back to this time last year and their 'A Flash Flood Of Xmas' tour with the release of a brand new CD/DVD set filmed live in Glasgow.

Recorded on the first of two nights at Glasgow's legendary Barrowland Ballroom in front of 2000 excitable Scottish fans, this 2xCD/DVD set is the fifth edition in the bands ongoing 'Bootleg Series' of releases.

The audio soundtrack for the release was recorded and mixed by the boffins at Abbey Road Studios in London, while the glorious multi-camera footage was shot & edited by Kode Media who have previously worked with You Me at Six and Kids in Glass Houses.

The release is available exclusively from the band's official website, and as an extra bonus for fans, all copies purchased there will come fully signed by the band.

The band's third studio album, 'A Flash Flood of Colour' was released on 16th January 2012 and debuted on the chart at four on the UK Album Chart. The band are currently embarking on the 'A Flash Flood of Colour World Tour' which included a second stage headline slot at the Download Festival in June, and a performance at Glastonbury as well as giving the band their first opportunity to play in Bulgaria and Romania.

Ground-work for the recording of their fourth studio album has begun and they will announce further details in 2014.

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.
