Last week we announced that Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons had signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Records and would be starting to record their debut album as soon as their summer festival dates are completed.

Phil is also making a solo album and now we can reveal some of the special guests who will be appearing on that record.

In a recent intervi8w wirth Swedish magaine Rocksverige, Phil elaborated on both forthcoming albums. Phil said:

"I'm also doing my solo record and I'm halfway through that one. But yeah, we've started writing for The Bastards and we should have an alum out next year. Trying to keep busy."

When asked whether he has the same approach writing for The Bastards as he had in Motörhead, Phil replied:

"Not really. When we wrote for Motörhead we'd lock ourselves in a studio for like six weeks. Now we've got our own recording studio and we've written about seven or eight songs. They're not totally finished and we haven't done any vocals or anything. We go there a couple of days a week or whatever, so it's a bit more relaxed."

Rob Halford and Chris Fehn from Slipknot are guesting on Phil's solo album and Phil revealed other names who will appear on it.

"Dee Snider is doing some vocals. Benji Webbe from Skindred has done it. I'm really lucky to get these people on it. Matt Sorum's gonna do a track. He's doing it next week. His mixing desk blew out. It's gonna be good.

"It's not gonna be what people expect. I play piano on a few tracks. I don't know, since it's not finished yet. I still gotta write another six songs for it, but it's not gonna be all totally like Motörhead. After many years it's just nice to be able to do what I want. I could do what I wanted in Motörhead, but we didn't wanna stray too far away. We'd put a saxophone in when we wanted and a piano and acoustics..."

And on the track on the Bastards album called 'Life In Space', Phil said:

"Todd [Campbell] wrote most of that one. He did all the melodies and vocals. He's got an incredible voice and he can sing anything and in any key. I think it took him like two hours to complete that song with the lyrics as well. It's a great song."

When Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons signed their worldwide record deal with the world's biggest Metal label, Nuclear Blast, last week, Phil said about the news:

"I am really pleased to announce that my band, Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons, have signed a record deal with Nuclear Blast. The label is home to some great bands, some of which are also very good friends of mine. Once we get back from the summer festivals we look forward to recording our first full length album!"

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.
