Darkwave Industrial Metal band Sad Dolls hail from Greece and 'Grave Party' is their third full album and I wondered what the band would be like, so believe you me I wasn't expecting a lot from a band I had not listened to before.

I was wrong because Sad Dolls have that Scandinavian sound and its very distinctive and has a great feel good factor to it.

On 'Lady Cry' George's vocals could make you think of Ville Valo of HIM mixing the deepness of Type O Negative's Pete Steele, the structure of the song is very intense providing a good mix of guitars and keyboard.

Followed promptly on the next track a surprise is at hand as Skinny Disco from Deathstars guests on the song 'Terminate Me'. The intro is a bit slow but it takes about thirty seconds to get that impact intense rip roaring rhythm.

It seems that this could have been a great track but for me it's a bit wishy washy and the mix just doesn't seem to be right which is disappointing.

'Bleed Sister Bleed' is more like a resounding track for my personal taste, very similar in contrast to a certain Bradford Doom band. Very intense vocals blended well with a catchy lyrical content but it has a very slow pace to it.

Mixing piano and guitars 'Suicide Girl' is a kind of standard song expected on any goth Metal album, but final song 'Thirteen', which is a Johnny Cash cover, has a bit of a kick to it.

All in all, I listened to 'Grave Party' a lot to try and see if it would grow on me. It did to a certain degree and if you like death glam, industrial then you will definitely have to give these a listen.

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.
