sabaton - antwerp

Sabaton have confirm that they will play one final show of their current tour at Trix/Hof Ter Lo in Antwerp on 18th December.

The band say that this gig "will be a one-off and we will not bring a setlist or respect any venue curfew. This show will mark the end of the fantastic year and a half long World War Tour and is likely the last chance to hear some of our songs for a very long time since next time we go on tour it will be with a completely new album in our backs.

"After this show we will return to Sweden and start working on the next studioalbum which currently has the working name 'Kings Of War. History will be written."

Sabaton released their first live album ever last week. 'World War Live â€" Battle Of The Baltic Sea' includes more than four hours of Sabaton's notorious live power, containing the full show at the Sabaton Cruise in December 2010 plus a bonus CD with live audio recordings of the World War Tour 2010.

An enhanced bonus DVD features recordings of a concert at Sabaton's home base Rockstad Falun in 2008 as well as the video clips for the smash hits 'Coat Of Arms', 'Uprising' and 'Screaming Eagles'.

War correspondents report:

"77 minutes of superb sound, optimally mixed and highly emotional â€" that’s the way live records work!" (SPIELEMAGAZIN)

"A punchy and jam-packed live monument! On this album, everybody gets what he or she wants when hearing the name Sabaton." (

"An all-round carefree package that can also be used very well by Sabaton-newbies for getting started." (



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.
