Soldierfield Bury The Ones We Love

Lying on the border of hard rock and Metal, newly formed Soldierfield boast debut EP 'Bury The Ones We Love' showing off all the musicians' talents from the recognisably strong vocals of Leigh Oates to the heavy, head banging riffs of Andy Trott.

'Bury The Ones We Love' starts with a piano intro that leads into the main chunky riff, quickly followed by an elevated chorus. With the title track usually being one of the highlights of a release, it may be predicted that they have started with the best first, but you couldn't be more wrong as the rest of the EP continues to be just as powerful.

The energy in 'Feel Alive' changes in intensity giving an unpredictable edge that makes it more enjoyable. The move from verse to chorus is smooth and effortless as the vocals escalate to become more dominating.

The speed Metal influenced intro of 'Leave You In Dirt' leaves behind the heaviest tone in its wake, which makes it even more surprising when the peaceful piano and string led mid-section emerges.

The acoustic guitar parts in 'Skyflower' give a gentle and relaxed element to the song, a contrast to the other tracks. Leigh's ranging vocals are beautifully showcased on the EP, with him adopting a softer tone that is used throughout this track, and is one of the highlights of the EP. Following it, 'The Path' is a mix of shouted verses and thumping drums. Ending with an acoustic riff, the song is brought to a subtler end.

'Bury The Ones We Love' stands out from the artists' previous work in bands such as Order Of Voices and Rise To Addiction. The melodies are stronger and there is an overall sense of it being a more accomplished offering. It also offers a glimpse of every side of the band - sensitive and acoustic, speed Metal riffing and forcefully memorable choruses, each aspect being equally successful.

Soldierfield have plenty to contribute to the current Metal scene and this EP should see their full-length album be a highly anticipated release.




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.
