  BEWARE OF DARKNESS ANNOUNCED AS SUPPORT TO SMASHING PUMPKINS ON UK DATES
24th April 2013

beware of darkness



Beware of Darkness have been staking a claim to UK soil over the past few weeks with a series of live dates including support slots with Skunk Anansie and their very own packed-out headline performances. They're set to continue on their UK journey with a stint supporting the one and only Smashing Pumpkins in July, amongst various European festival appearances. These dates include Wembley Arena on 22nd July.

The Los Angeles trio are set to release new single 'Howl' on 6th May with its music video offering up a suitably visceral visual accompaniment. The track has already been picking up plays at the likes of XFM, Kerrang! Radio and Q Radio. Beware of Darkness are also preparing to release their full length debut album 'Orthodox' which will be out on 27th May via Bright Antenna Records.

This rocking, new power-trio made up of songwriter and guitarist, Kyle Nicolaides, drummer Tony Cupito, and bass general Daniel Curcio were weaned on a heady blend of The Beatles and Led Zeppelin to form the nucleus of what 'Orthodox' brings to your ears.

Recorded entirely in two weeks at the Sound Factory and Valley Recorder in Hollywood, CA, executive produced and mixed by Dave Sardy (at his Hillside Recording Studio) and produced by Greg Gordon and Nicolaides, Beware of Darkness' debut-full length will be the most fun you will have listening to a meditation on loss, girls, mothers and the implications of all three on the rest of us.

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.
