29th August 2013

heavy metal kids



The Heavy Metal Kids have announced Paul Manzi as the new vocalist of the band. He will join the current line-up of drummer Keith Boyce, guitarists Cosmo and Justin McConville and bassist Ronnie Garity.

Until recently McConville has been handling the vocals duties but the introduction of Paul Manzi will give the Heavy Metal Kids an added extra dimension.

Paul Manzi is a versatile singer who has pedigree and is better known in the progressive rock field having performed with Barchetta, Oliver Wakeman and more recently in Arena as well as spending time with Cosmo in Raw Glory.

The Heavy Metal Kids released a string of highly influential albums in the seventies with the now sadly departed and legendary singer and actor Gary Holton. Since reforming in 2002 the band have had a few different faces fronting the band including former UFO keyboardist Danny Peyronel and more controversially former Eastenders actor John Altman who played Nasty Nick in the show.

LA Guns vocalist Phil Lewis fronted the band for a few select shows whilst Justin McConville has been the vocalist and guitarist for the Kids for the past couple of years including the support slot they did with UFO in 2011.

The Heavy Metal Kids will unveil their new vocalist with a gig this Saturday 31st August with a show at the Merton Manor Club in South Wimbledon, London.

A day later the band will be playing at the Weyfest near Farnham, Surrey sharing a bill with The Strawbs, Hawklords, The Temperance Movement, Snakecharmer, From The Jam and UB40.

You can see Paul Manzi in the clip below where he sings with Oliver Wakeman.

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

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.
