SUNDAY 5th JANUARY 2014

A very special evening to kick start the gigging year with Metalworks, a cover band who play the best of classic Heavy Metal and have been regularly playing in Camden on Sunday evenings for the past ten years and whose roots stretch back now for two decades.

But this evening was a more than a little bit special as two former members who have since lived the dream and gone on to join world famous classic bands returned for one magical evening.

Joining singer Steff was Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner and Uriah Heep's new bassist Davey Rimmer with Pete Cowan on the drums. This was a reunion of the Metalworks line-up that used to play at the Caernarvon Castle pub in Camden.

Those lucky enough to find out by word of mouth were treated to a phenomenal and ear blistering three hour set of non stop Metal.

Richie Faulkner, dressed casually in tight black jeans and hoodie, performed for the full three hours and greatly impressed with some sublime riffs and hooks and looking every inch the rock star and throwing all the right shapes.

He surprised many by performing his bosses biggest hit, 'Breaking The Law', on only the third song of the set which ensued raised fists and happy screaming punters.

Thin Lizzy's 'Jailbreak' and 'Don't Believe A Word' soon followed and the set list soon looked like the track listing of K-Tel's 'Axe Attack' volume I & II.

Cobalt Stargazer

Many guests joined in on the fun with Zodiac Mindwarp's six stringer legend Cobalt Stargazer coming on for Lizzy's old favourite 'I'm A Rocker' with both he and Richie raising their axes above their heads.

Tony Parsons

Tony Parsons, an original Iron Maiden guitarist, delighted Richie with versions of 'Sanctuary' and 'Running Free' and Matt Pearce from Voodoo Six joined in a two pronged attack on 'The Green Manilishi'. Mia Klose guitarist Micky Patient performed an explosive 'Whole Lotta Rosie', one of many AC/DC tracks aired on the night with 'Highway To Hell' seeing Steff carry Davey Rimmer, Angus style.

Italian Luka 'Twitch' Ravase, the new singer of Mick Underwood's Glory Road, took over vocal duties for a stomping 'Final Countdown' and Ozzy's 'Crazy Train' in which Richie performed a solo that would have made Randy Rhoads proud.

The madness could have carried on all night, in fact it did with many revellers and band members enjoying a celebratory drink afterwards in the Elephants Head pub which remained open until 3.00am.

A stunning evening which will be remembered for a very long time indeed... "You don't know what it's liiikkkkeee."

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.
