alter bridge

Alter Bridge recently announced the release of a new live album and rarities collection, 'Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities', which captures one of the biggest moments of their career when they played a monumental show at London's famous O2 Arena on November 24th 2016.

The band have put together a clip of some of the finest moments of this landmark performance with their track 'Cradle To The Grave' from 'The Last Hero'. Check out the video right here.



'Live At The O2 Arena + Rarities' features Alter Bridge hits such as 'Farther Than The Sun', 'Show Me A Leader', 'Rise Today' and their masterpiece 'Isolation', showcasing a group at the top of their game. Other highlights include the Tremonti sung 'Waters Rising', the acoustic-driven 'Watch Over You' and their signature anthem 'Blackbird'.

The exclusive full-length 'Rarities' CD features the never-before released tracks 'Cruel Sun' and 'Solace' that were recorded during the 'One Day Remains' sessions, as well as the song 'Breathe' from the same time which has only ever been available as a US retail exclusive via Best Buy. These tracks join seven other songs that have only been released in Japan until this collection.

This incredible selection of Alter Bridge gems will be released in multiple formats, most notably the limited deluxe editions which also include an exclusive Alter Bridge documentary featuring extensive interviews with the band, their crew and family, giving an amazing glimpse behind the scenes of this legendary show at the O2. Check out the trailer here,



Following the band's recent announcement about two special shows on October 2nd and 3rd at London's infamous Royal Albert Hall, with a 52-piece orchestra, headline shows in Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin have now been added where they will play different sets from their sold out shows there earlier this month.

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

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.

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.
