After returning from a highly successful stint at Bloodstock Open Air (held annually at Catton Park in Derbyshire), Central Scotland Metal band have released a new promo video for their track 'Ace 2013'.

The song was the third song that the band ever wrote together, and to celebrate the band being three years old, they have re-recorded a new version of the track.

A brand new video for the song, which can be seen below shows the band in their rehearsal space and was produced and directed by Digital Night Productions who has previously worked with Deadly Inscription, Cemtex, Lets Play God and Les-Fest.

Mair won their place at Bloodstock through the Metal To The Masses competition in a closely fought contest in held in Glasgow at the start of July. The band were also the first band to step on stage at the second ever Les-Fest - Scotland's only Rock and Metal Festival earlier this year and hope to return there for Les-Fest 3 in June 2014.

A spokesman for the band said of their Bloodstock set: "Huge thanks to everyone who came to see us at Bloodstock! (It was a) tough one clashing with Accept but turned out great! We had a blast, saw some awesome bands and drank lots of beer!"

The band are currently planning some tour dates in September and return to a local haunt, The Quarry Bar in Hamilton early in October.

Mair are Groove Metal band who are influenced by bands like Black sabbath and Led Zeppelin who are growing their fan base through local and national gigs supporting bands like Firebrand Super Rock and Furyon and released their self-titled EP in 2011.

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.
