7th October 2017

Deep Purple are setting sails into new waters with their first ever animated video. The official video for 'The Surprising', one of the fan favourites from the international success 'inFinite', takes the viewer on a journey through the magical fifty year history of the band.

With high attention to detail, the animated masterpiece follows the five heroes of our story – Ian Gillan, Ian Paice, Roger Glover, Don Airey and Steve Morse – through a stormy ship cruise full of allusions and sees them riding off into the sunset.

The video has been directed and illustrated by Matt Rooke, alongside director Peter Rogers who also produced the video, together with Craig Hooper and Collin Games, known from the Deep Purple movie documentary 'From Here To inFinite'.



Coinciding with the video premiere, Deep Purple and earMUSIC are happy to announce and celebrate the worldwide chart success of 'inFinite' by releasing a very special, strictly limited gold edition on November 3rd. Being released in a high quality 2CD digipak with brand new artwork, the gold edition will feature all of the great masterpieces from 'inFinite' while also including a brand new, previously unreleased 80min live show from the biggest Metal festival in France, Hellfest 2017, as bonus.

Thousands of fans assembled to witness this very rocking, very real performance which will also be available as 'The inFinite Live Recordings, Pt. 1' on 3-vinyl and has also been produced by Bob Ezrin.

Every fan's needs will be fulfilled with the release of the ninety-seven minute documentary 'From Here To inFinite', which shows the history of origin of 'inFinite' and provides a deep insight into the workings of the band – for the first time on Blu-ray.

The Blu-ray also includes over two hours of bonus material, including music videos such as 'The Surprising', three previously unreleased live videos - 'Time For Bedlam', 'Birds Of Prey' and 'Smoke On The Water' - all filmed and recorded at Hellfest 2017, as well as in-depth behind the scenes footage, movie documentary outtakes, interviews and an audio commentary by Deep Purple themselves - all previously unreleased.

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.
