Independent record label SED Records UK will once again be presenting their monthly FREE entry rock night with the best emerging talent in the UK at The Intrepid Fox, Soho on Thursday 1st December 2011. No-holds-barred hard rock head bangers, Hornet, will be joined by special guests Wired Desire, main support and Walkway, opening act in what is set to be one of the best rock nights of 2011.

Headliners, Hornet, are sure to get The Intrepid Fox buzzing again! After the first show, the venue management said; "What a great show last night, it was busy as hell and Hornet absolutely kicked ass, a band not to be missed!"

Hornet are a band who know what they are and don't give a fuck who knows it. They have an exuberant style which has been compared to The Sex Pistols and Black Flag; all delivered with a high energy AC/DC flavour.

Big In The Game Magazine recently said; "In their time The Sex Pistols had revolutionised the music industry in a way never seen before. It is my belief that Hornet will do the same, all that's left is to see their influence spread. Need I say any more?"

And Glasswerk said; "It's Like witnessing Nirvana, The Sex Pistols and Black Flag and the crowd here is lucky enough to catch the band in intimate surroundings, clearly aware that they are witnessing something very special indeed. 'Outta Control', 'Second Hand Smoke' and 'Rock n Roll Riot' already sound like classics. The bands rise to superstardom depends on one thing - whether a major label has big enough balls to take on this rock leviathan."

Wired Desire, one of the UK's top up and coming rock bands, play fist pumping, balls to the wall hard rock and foot stomping tunes. They've already toured the UK extensively and have supported the likes of Wishbone Ash, Bad Company and Nazareth. They will be showcasing some new material at The Fox, which is surely not to be missed. Malcolm Dome – Music Journalist and Total Rock Radio DJ said; "Wired Desire are making damn fine music for the new era, while also nodding to the roots. If you've got a pulse, it'll jump to this lot."

Walkway are all about the live show experience; with distinct vocals, jaw dropping solos and a solid rhythm section. The band has played 400 shows to date, which has caused a major stir across the UK and Europe entertaining fans in a number of venues. Walkway bring back the taste of the 70s and 80s rock scene but in their own unique way. Influenced by Van Halen, Whitesnake and Aerosmith, Walkway are one of the best bands in Norfolk/Suffolk, they are ready to rock Soho and show London what they have to offer.

The doors will be opening at 8:00pm and music will kick off at 8:30pm but remember this is a FREE entry night so make sure you are there early enough to get in!



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.
