  'BRITISH STEEL - THE RISING FORCE OF BRITISH HEAVY METAL' OUT AUGUST 22nd
24th July 2017



british steel

The home to legendary British acts Diamond Head and Grim Reaper, Dissonance Productions, are putting their money where their mouth is and heralding a new dawn of British Heavy Metal acts.

Acts eager to follow in the size 12s of one-time hopefuls who struck out over the past decades, some of whom went stratospheric, some who didn't but command mega-cult status worldwide. Bands like Iron Maiden, Saxon, Def Leppard, Motörhead, Raven, Girlschool, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Judas Priest and a host of others.

Having breathed life back into seminal old favourites, for example Raven, Vardis, Onslaught, Samson, Venom, Girlschool, Marshall Law, Blitzkrieg, Cloven Hoof, Jaguar, Xentrix, Amebix, Slammer, Deathwish and more it is now time to unleash the ravenous new breed.

On 'British Steel...' you'll hear Amulet, Aggressive Perfector, Eliminator, Dungeon, Dark Forest, Toledo Steel, Vuil, Seven Sisters, Insurgency, Neuronspoiler and Wytch Hazel.

Great Britain 2017, the ostensible home of Heavy Metal, is spawning quality and varied acts ready to compete with the best of our neighbours.

A younger generation, brought up with a broad knowledge of heavy music, have decided that they aren't interested in pushing the boundaries of technique, production and extremity. Instead, these bucks seek only to find their own sound and write songs of the quality they grew up with on the family stereo. This passion for heavy music gives these 'sons of their fathers' the confidence to make exactly the music they want.

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.
