  VANGOUGH STREAMING NEW SONG FROM FORTHCOMING NEW ALBUM
21st October 2011

vangough



With less than a week remaining until the release of Vangough's highly anticipated release 'Kingdom Of Ruin', the band has teamed up with Metal Injection who are streaming Vangough's video for the song 'Drained' which you can see below.

The band may be named after a post-impressionistic artist, come from a conservative bastion of the US (Oklahoma) and draw inspiration from heavy guitar driven 90s Metal bands but they are driven by the explosive, cutting edge vision of guitarist and lead vocalist Clay Withrow, the band's incisive and infectious songs and intense energy requires adjectives far beyond words that describe mainstream artists.

So here's an opening attempt: committed to drawing listeners into their melodies before totally upending the tea table, they spit fiery madness by drenching your ears with a purple sunrise of melodic cocaine and a not-so-subtle approach to reading you the story behind today's headlines.

With their newly completed third album, the grandiose 'Kingdom Of Ruin', Vangough have taken their conceptual visions another step ahead. The story of The Rabbit Kingdom is about a man who is stepping through the veil of two realities. One reality is of his human life and the other a land where rabbits rule in an idyllic forest kingdom.

Through the course of the story he begins to realize his link to this other world and has to come to the difficult decision if he should stay a human or take his place as the rightful heir to the throne in this faraway kingdom. Musically influenced by everything from older prog rock acts like King Crimson and ELP to modern day Flower Kings, over Metal bands like Pain Of Salvation, Evergrey and Pantera, Vangough embraces it all.

With the concept split in two halfs; one Metal and one rock oriented, 'Kingdom Of Ruin' is sure to become a landmark on the current music scene and a staple for future progressive bands.

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.
