The members of Wovenwar have a little over 300 years of recording experience between them and boy does it show in the recording.

Originally medieval lutists, these men have travelled through time to bring us unparalleled musicianship.

Every note hit, played or sung is the perfect choice. Every stop, start and tempo change happens so accurately science has had to invent new ways of measuring time.

Every chorus has a hook, every line a message, every chant a reason to be there. Each song has been created using a modern scientific formula that unleashes the Metal directly from each of their android brains.

The real back story of these guys is almost more interesting than time travelling lutists.

The metaphor I employed was all about representing the vibe of this adult oriented Metal album. The reality is that the surviving members of As I Lay Dying, forced to make a break from their jailed former singer, (and cynically born again Christian), recruited the immense talent of Shane Blay on vocals and set about carving themselves a new future.

As you may have guessed from the preamble, this album is clinical in its recording and composition. I can say with all honesty that I have never heard an album that can be more completely recommended or damned on the listen of a single YouTube offering.



The album has 15 tracks, the highlights of which are the infectious intro to 'Sight of Shore' and the opening riff to 'Identity' which is by far the most inspired moment of the album.

These are sure to be a great live act and seem to have the backing that should see them appearing around the world. What better reason to buy an album, go give yourself something new to sing along with.

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.
