Festival promoter John Davis of Chic Talent said: "Following last year's event, which included both Sodom and Destruction, we were really keen to have Germany's other leading thrash Metal act play at Hammerfest. We are glad to be able to announce Kreator's inclusion in this year's bill. Last year's event was considered by many to be our best yet. Thriving in its new location Hafan y Mor Park, North Wales, we aim to raise the bar higher still."

Kreator released their 13th studio album in 2012 titled ‘Phantom Antichrist' on Nucleur Blast Records.

Here's the video of 'Phamtom Antichrist'...



Also celebrating all things Thrash, Hammerfest is pleased to announce US Thrash gods Overkill. The seminal thrash Metal veterans fronted by Bobby 'Blitz' Ellsworth similarly bring their uptempo unique fiery brand of thrash to next Spring's event and will head the Friday night line-up.

Here's their classic track 'Bring Me The Night'...



Next joining the Hammerfest party are two Swedish Death Metal favourites. Firstly, the more melodic and majorly revered Soilwork who coincidently are also signed to Nucleur Blast Records, honour us with their presence and join the Friday nights billing.



Secondly, Swedish stoic Death Metallers Unleashed who released their 11th album 'Odalheim' last year to great critical acclaim, bring their unique and heavy brand of Viking metal to Hammerfest and in keeping with the above acts are also signed to Nucleur Blast Records.



Also joining the Hammerfest 2014 bill are Swedish Metal act Grand Magus, Belgium Black Metallers Enthroned, speed/power Metal veterans Paragon (who play the UK for the first time following a 23 year career in Germany), Nottingham Alternative Metal act Earthtone 9, Gibraltar's finest flamenco metallers Breed 77 plus Annihilated and Gravil.

If that's not enough to get you excited, we will also be announcing more acts imminently so watch this space. We suggest you grab a ticket quickly for the UK's top Metal Spring holiday destination.

Hammerfest takes place at Haven Hafan y Môr Holiday Park, Pwllheli, Gwynedd, North Wales.

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.
