25th September 2011

holyhell




HolyHell have announced veteran John Macaluso as their new drummer and celebrate their new arrival with a free download of one of their first live appearances together.

HolyHell and Macaluso first played together in March 2011 with performances in sold-out shows in Worcester, MA and Cleveland, OH.

"The energy was so amazing, you can hear it effortlessly in the performances", said HolyHell front woman and songwriter Maria Breon. "We want to share this experience with our fans! Join us on Facebook - and on the road!"

Macaluso has been the recording and touring drummer for world-renowned acts, such as Yngwie Malmsteen, ARK, James LaBrie (Dream Theater), TNT, Riot, Powermad, Starbreaker, Chris Caffery and KRS-One. Also known as 'Johnny Mac' he is endorsed by Paiste Cymbals, Evans DrumHeads, Vic Firth Drum Sticks and GMS Drums.

"Playing With 'Mac' has been a revelation and a pleasure for the whole band. He's a monster drummer with impeccable timing and a strong sense for the music", said musical director Francisco Palomo.

"Johnny Mac is a perfect fit for HolyHell. The band sounds killer!" adds Joe Stump.

HolyHell have earned high praise for their debut album 'Holyhell'. The thirteen-song concept album taps into the dichotomy of its namesake, as HolyHell explore, lyrically and musically, the eternal struggle between darkness and light, life and death, evil and divine. HolyHell have gathered a growing following with their live performances in Europe and the US over the last couple of years.

The band is working on their new album, set for release in 2012.

The next opportunity to witness the infernal energy of HolyHell and Macaluso are two upcoming shows in November: Nov. 18, at the 'Dublin Pub' New Hyde Park, Long Island, NY and Nov. 19, at the 'Starland Ballroom' in Sayreville, NJ.

The free live version of 'Revelations' from HolyHell's debut album 'Holyhell' is now available on the band's Facebook page by clicking here.


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.
