Therapy? have delivered a unique brand of music through thirteen releases. They have refused to be defined by labels and ignored the trends that shape musical landscapes. For 26 years they have encompassed bruising power, melodic anthems, chaotic noise, diverse exploration, and undeniable hooks.

The newest offering, 'Disquiet', finds the band returning to more straight ahead song structures and fewer complexities than the two previous albums. Amongst the feelings of anger, despair, and frustration the music swells with a melodic undercurrent filled with memorable anthems.

The pounding and infectious 'Still Hurts' kicks off this eleven-track album. Its delivery is quick and precise. It's a throwback to the blistering opener 'Knives' off the 'Troublegum' album. The melodic and almost poppy 'Tides' follows with a big sing-a-long chorus. This tune should be the next single after 'Still Hurts' as it is a cornerstone of this release.

'Good News Is No News' works its way from slow haunting verses to a heavy-laden chorus. 'Fall Behind' is another rocker with a fat riff that leads the way.

The dark alternative sounding 'Idiot Cousin' is another standout. The powerful lyrics are woven into the songs fabric creating another brilliant track. The driving bass gives the song its platform while drums provide its direction. Stack the vocals and power punch guitars into the mix and its perfection. Chugging riffs power 'Helpless Still Lost' and the up-tempo rocker 'Insecurity'.

'Vulgar Display Of Powder' is a one-ton hammer with pounding guitars and aggressive attack. The direct lyrics and sharp vocals leave the chorus resonating in your head while 'Words Fail Me' and 'Torment Sorrow Misery Strife' (perhaps my favorite track) are both straight-ahead songs that arethe classic Therapy? sound.

The album comes to a close with a dark atmospheric 'Deathstimate'. Somber lyrics like "the road ahead is shorter than the one behind" plays off the doom thick guitars. Every ounce of emotion is squeezed out of this seven-minute track.

This record returns Therapy? back into the melodic beast they are. 'Disquiet' takes the band almost full circle back to its punk/Metal roots but doesn't lose touch of the growth and experience its endured over the decades. This record is full of clever hooks, anthems, and concise riffs coupled with strong lyrical content. It is one of the most complete albums Therapy? have released in recent years and should be enjoyed for years to come.

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.
