  FOUR MORE TOP BANDS CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK 2018
5th December 2017



bloodstock

The bill for Bloodstock 2018 is looking hotter by the week as more stellar acts have now been announced.

Joining Friday's main stage bill are crossover thrash legends Suicidal Tendencies, who play Bloodstock for the first time in their storied thirty-eight year career. The revered band's twelfth studio album, 'World Gone Mad', landed last year, featuring ex-Slayer drum icon Dave Lombardo at the kit.

Check out the band's video for 'Living For Life', from that album right here:



We certainly expect Mike Muir and co will be giving Devildriver a run for their money on the circle pit front!

Also landing a debut slot on the bill is the Duke of Spook, Wednesday 13. Channelling shades of two previous BOA headliners, Alice Cooper and Rob Zombie, Wednesday and his band are set to bring some schlocky horror fun to Friday's main stage. Check out the video for 'Blood Sick' which is taken from his current 'Condolences' album, out now via Nuclear Blast:



Florida symphonic/power Metallers Kamelot join Friday's main stage line-up. The Tampa-based band are hard at work on the follow-up to their 2015 album, 'Haven' and you can check out their video for 'Liar Liar' from the album here, featuring a guest vocal slot from Arch Enemy's Alissa White-Gluz:



The 'Haven' album also incidentally features a guest appearance from another Bloodstock favourite, Delain's Charlotte Wessels.

Classic rock luminaries Mr Big also make their Bloodstock debut on Sunday's main stage, marking thirty years since the band's inception. Earlier this summer, Frontiers Music released Mr Big's ninth studio album, 'Defying Gravity', which saw the acclaimed musicians reunited with producer Kevin Elson for the first time in twenty-one years.

Remind yourself of 1992s giant number one hit in fifteen countries, 'To Be With You', and then check out new track 'Everybody Needs A Little Trouble' right here:





Bloodstock tickets are on sale now right here.

With Friday night headliners Judas Priest, Saturday headliners Gojira and Sunday's bill toppers Nightwish already confirmed, plus Emperor, Devildriver, Watain, Fozzy, Combichrist, Bloodbath, Nails, Doro, Orden Ogan, Septicflesh and Memoriam, 2018 is shaping up to be another stellar year for Bloodstock with more bands still to be announced.

Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th-12th August 2018. Get additional informationright here.

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.

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.
