(Superfecta Music)

South London hard rockers Superfecta recently released debut EP and if you like melodic hard rock tunes with huge riffs and searing solos then this is one band tht you should really check out!

Kicking off with 'She's A Star' which was released in demo form back in June 2012, there's a great atmospheric build up with some ghostly vocals mixed in with some echoy guitar before the track really gets going with a short burst on the drums and a good solid guitar riff.

The track tells the story of a girl who thinks she's a actually a big star, but the reality of her situation is that that she's very far from it. Vocalist Andy Urwin has a clear bluesy voice and at times sounds not unlike Soundgarden supremo Chris Cornell whose joined halfway through the song by a female voice mid-way through that just adds another dimension to the song.

Track two is 'Paradox' which has another great build up from drummer Junior Ior (participating in his first recordings with the band) and guitarist Danun Todd before the main 12 bar riff settles down to a good fast pace. Urwin has a slightly different vocal tone in this number - sounding more rock orientated than on the previous track - it just shows how good his voice actually is. 'Paradox' bounces along nicely, though, to make this a very enjoyable song.


'Inside' starts off with a nice acoustic guitar part before being joined by a solid drum beat before singer comes in. This is the slowest of the songs presented here and it's certainly among the best on this EP. The story of a relationship breakdown is always good inspiration for songs and Superfecta manage to tick all the boxes with this number. The soaring vocals from Urwin towards the end are really good and prove how much of an asset to the band he really is.


The EP ends with 'Pendulum' which is a mad dash from start to finish. A good solid guitar riff from Todd sets the tone as Ior works hard to hold down a frantic beat at the back. Urwin's vocals are among the best on the EP here and his voice really soars through the catchy choruses. A great way to end a great EP and I look forward to hearing more from the band in the near future.

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.


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.
