Shortly after the recordings of her eagerly awaited new album 'Raise Your Fist' (out on the 19th of October via Nuclear Blast) were finished, Doro Pesch went directly from the studio to the movie set.

For two weeks the Queen of Heavy Metal has been on camera in Ireland and Switzerland now to slip into the role of Meha for the second part of the movie 'Anuk – Der Weg des Kriegers' by director Luke Gasser, which tells the story of a mountain tribe battling for their existence against dark hordes, 2500 years BC.

Doro explains: "In one scene I had to bite off a villain's ear. One can see me with a completely blood-smeared face afterwards. Looks brutal, but the shooting is great fun. Though it can be pretty tough and demanding at times – and even a bit dangerous. I especially love the scenes when I ride the horse."

Part one of 'Anuk – Doro's cinematic debut – came out in 2006 and the second part will come out at the end of 2013 and the soundtrack will surely contain one or another song of Doro's new record 'Raise Your Fist'.

"I think the track 'Free Your Heart' suits the movie perfectly", states Doro.

Before that, Doro can be seen live on stage again. On 7th September at the Nürburgring, Germany, over the course of the Super Bike World Cup, and on the 'Raise Your Fist' European tour from 15th November on.

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.
