artillery

Artillery - one of the best thrash metal bands around enters the recording studio on the 29th of November to record a follow up to their very successful album 'When Death Comes' (2009). New material will be recorded again at Medley Studios in Denmark with Søren Andersen as the producer.

Michael Stützer says: "Artillery is very excited to start working on the follow up to 'When Death Comes', which received such a great response from both fans and medias. It´s great to go back to the studio only 1 1/2 year after our last effort, to show the fans that Artillery is working very hard to make new recordings and to tour again. And this time it won't take us 10 years to make a new album! We feel that the new songs will continue the style and production of our last efforts and we are looking forward to play new songs live for the best and most dedicated fans of metal."

Denmark's Artillery is one of Europe's earliest exponents of thrash metal and the band's contribution to the bourgeoning genre is difficult to ignore. The Danish quartet successfully managed to fuse abrasive brutality with technicality and good melodies, with the noteworthy guitar leads of the Stützer brothers as well as the remarkable vocals from Flemming Rønsdorf serving as highlights.

Due to Artillery's demos being well distributed, the band gained worldwide recognition even before the release of their first official album; and the band's first three studio albums, 'Fear of Tomorrow', 'Terror Squad' and 'By Inheritance', all assumed the status of classics in the thrash genre. However, due to lack of support from labels and internal band disputes, Artillery never really achieved their big breakthrough and thus split up in 1991.

In late 1999, Artillery reunited and released the critically acclaimed album 'B.A.C.K.', but they didn't really take off as a band. A few live appearances came in the wake of the release, only to be followed by silence. However, in 2008 the classic core of Artillery, consisting of Morten and Michael Stützer as well as Peter Thorslund (bass) and Carsten N. Nielsen (drums) rejoined forces and subsequently employed new vocalist Søren Adamsen, who provided the band with rejuvenated energy and musical prowess that was soon to be witnessed on their live DVD 'One Foot in the Grave, The Other One in the Trash', containing updated versions of classic material.

A new chapter in the life of Artillery began with their studio album 'When Death Comes', containing 10 blistering tracks that fill the void between their past glory and future splendour.



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

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.

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.
