  TRIAXIS ANNOUNCE NEW BASSIST & NEW ALBUM PLANS
12 June 2014





South Wales Metalheads Triaxis are thrilled to announce that highly experienced bassist, Becky Baldwin (Control The Storm, IDEstroy), has joined the band on a permanent basis. After receiving numerous applications from around the world & auditioning a number of excellent bass players, Becky's outstanding musicianship won through.

Having started playing bass at the age of 13, & subsequently moving to Bristol in 2009, Becky has become heavily involved in the city's music scene & has worked with a number of bands across a variety of genres, as well as recording sessions for Total Guitar Magazine.

Her level of skill is unsurprising given the tuition received from the likes of Stuart Clayton (Carl Palmer Band), Damon Minchella (Ocean Colour Scene, Paul Weller) & Jim Barr (Portishead, Get The Blessing).

Lead vocalist Krissie Kirby says "We are delighted that Becky has joined us. Her skill as a musician was evident from the onset of her studio audition, & her professionalism & enthusiasm for the music was definitely apparent. We can't wait to get onstage with her & start the next chapter of Triaxis. We'd like to thank everyone who applied, the level of musicianship was excellent all round"

Triaxis are currently writing their third album, a follow-up to the acclaimed "Rage & Retribution" released on Rocksector Records in October 2012.

The band will be appearing at SOS Festival, Radcliffe Civic Hall, Manchester on July 20th 2014, alongside headliners I AM I, NWOBHM legends Tysondog & many others, prior to a UK tour in September.

They expect to enter the studio early in October to record, with early March pencilled in for release.

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.
