SPV/Steamhammer have announced that they have signed Nirogods to a worldwide deal.

The release dates for the self-titled debut album are Europe - February 27th 2012, Germany - February 24th 2012 and USA/Canada - early March 2012.

A teaser for the forthcoming album has also been released and can be seen below.

The band may still be unfamiliar to the public at large, but the three members are renowned musicians with illustrious histories to look back on. Guitarist Henny Wolter founded Thunderhead in 1988, played with Primal Fear, respectively Sinner for number of years and was part of the Rock Meets Classic tour band.

Drummer Klaus Sperling (Freedom Call) was also with Primal Fear for a long time. And at the epicentre of the Nitrogods soundquake is a heavyweight who is impressive in every respect: Oimel Larcher, a bear of a musician whose bass performance stands for sheer power and whose voice unmistakably reflects countless litres of beer and whiskey.

"I wanted to return to playing the music that I love," says Henny Wolter, "and that only works if you play it with your best friends."

The band's new album also thrilled some big names in rock 'n' roll. Nazareth singer Dan McCafferty and ex Motörhead guitarist Fast Eddie Clarke, who will release the new album of his own band Fastway in November this year via Steamhammer/SPV. Both were guest musicians on two songs. 'Whiskey Wonderland' and 'Wasted In Berlin'.

Fast Eddie Clarke comments on the co-operation with the Nitrogods:

"I first met Claus from the Nitrogods in 2005 when I did a benefit gig for the victims of the Tsunami in Indonesia. So I was happy to say yes when asked to do a solo on their new album on the track 'Wasted In Berlin'. I have to say the tracks they sent me sounded great. The band has great spirit and they all play extremely well together. So if you like fast and furious Rock you should give this a listen. I can assure you you will not be dissapointed..."

Dan McCafferty on Nitrogods:

"I have just had the pleasure to record a song with a new band called Nitrogods. Henny and I met and became good friends on the Rock Meets Classic tour 2010. Having heard other material for the album I think it will be a fine one. Hope you enjoy my contribution on Whiskey Wonderland. I wish the Gods the best of luck. Welcome to the rock 'n' roll world!"




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.
