  2 CARDS OF 25
'Penumbra'
(MGR Music)
13th July 2014


Gary 'Rockulus' Clarke

Rockulus Maximus



2 cards of 25

If you missed the original release date of this second single by 2 Cards of 25 and you were smitten with 'Alice In Wonderland', then you're in for a treat.

Their first single was a rocker and the official video for 'Alice In Wonderland' can be seen right here:

Not realising what a 'Penumbra' is I checked the dictionary and it explains the following; if regarding a painting it is where light and shade blend. Alternatively in general terms it translates as the edge of a sunspot or where the edges of a half shadow are projected through an opaque object via partial obstruction.

Essentially the main bit you need to know is that it is a piano-driven ballad and is very easy on the ear. Delicate and delightful in equal measures, this shows the band in a very different light (forgive the pun) in comparison to their opening stint as swaggering Rockers.

Colombian-born lead vocalist Diego Gutierrez has adopted London as his home-base as the band gear up to unveil their debut full-length studio album, and this single is intended to be their final single from this forthcoming album.

If you're partial to some good old skool rock music like the melodic side of Guns N' Roses and bands of that ilk, plus imagine a Colombian accent invested in the singing, you will have captured the vibe given of by 2 Cards of 25.

All that is left is for you to stroll on over to your music outlet of choice and give this new single a listen.

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.
