  HELLOWEEN SINGER ANDI DERIS LAUNCHES BAD BANKERS PROJECT
Nando Souza

Helloween/ex-Pink Cream 69 frontman Andi Deris has launched a brand new project called Andi Deris And Bad Bankers.

Says Andi: "It's been years since I was looking for a band (all over the planet) that I could actually ask to record an album with me, only to find it on the little island I live on just a few months ago. Even more thrilling is the fact that the guys are between 19 and 22 years old. You won't believe it when you listen to the songs!"

Andi Deris is a name that stands by itself. Being the lead singer of one of the greatest and most popular heavy metal bands worldwide, Helloween, there is not much too add when it comes to Andi Deris' musical achievements.

Now, Andi returns with his first solo album since 1999. Not so much a solo effort in its original sense but recorded in a band environment to achieve a real band feeling. 'Million Dollar Haircuts On Ten Cent Heads' will be released on November 22nd 2013 via earMUSIC.

Written and composed by Andi Deris himself, 'Million Dollar Haircuts On Ten Cent Heads' has a crispy, modern sound to it. The diverse, high class production is snotty, dirty and brutally honest. A healthy mixture of the recent sounding Helloween records combined with 'Master Of The Rings' tradition (Andi's first Helloween fronted album) and it features some extra ordinary Hendrix-like guitar sounds.

Listen to the new song 'Blind':



'Don't Listen To The Radio' is also a new song from the forthcoming album:



Recorded together with his band, The Bad Bankers, Andi Deris criticises the grievances of the economic system and its corruption. Although the topic may seem a bit dull, the heavy guitar riffs and Andi Deris' recognizable voice clearly make a point:

"Fuck banks, fuck managers, fuck bankers", explains Andi. "Obviously we despise everything around banks, managers and bankers who are clearly responsible for the shit that goes on nowadays (and most certainly in our future), so it felt very good to vocally tell them what we think about them. Sure, therefore it's highly explicit but hey... who gives a fuck. That's what they deserve... and it helps the music to really kick some ass."

Who would have thought that a bank crisis could result in something like this?

Andi Deris is currently in South America with Helloween on their Hellish Tour – Part 2 alongside Gamma Ray. The band will come back to Rio de Janeiro on November 30th, two months after their very successful gig at Rock in Rio. The local promoters promised an UNEXPECTED surprise for this specific gig as well as São Paulo's.

People are already speculating about a Michael Kiske special appearance since it's the same promoter who brought Unisonic to Brazil last year. We shall see. If it happens, MetalTalk.net readers will be the first to know.

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

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.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

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.
