  BEHEMOTH RETURN TO HEADLINE BLOODSTOCK FRIDAY NIGHT
25th November 2011

Behemoth have announced an exclusive UK festival appearance at Bloodstock Open Air 2012. Originally scheduled to perform at the 2010 event, the band were forced to cancel after frontman Nergal was diagnosed with Leukemia. After undergoing treatment including a bone-marrow transplant, the enigmatic frontman is fighting fit and ready to bring Behemoth's brutality back to the UK.

Nergal commented; "We couldn't do the show for obvious reasons last time. I was in a deep shithole with my sickness, but I really felt obliged to come back and do Bloodstock as soon as possible. We are really fortunate that they invited us back, we couldn't turn it down, and this is the perfect opportunity to make this up to the people that missed us last time.

"For us it's a great pleasure to come back to the UK after two years, and I can promise we will bring full production - lights, pyro - it's gonna be awesome and we can't wait. This is not only the first time we headline a festival, but also our first open air appearance in the UK, so it's gonna be special!"

"Bringing Behemoth back to Bloodstock in 2012 was our mission, they have been one of the most requested bands we have ever been asked for", states festival booker Vicky Gregory. "We know the fans will give them one hell of a reception. The show is their full production and what better place for them to return than as headliners for the Friday night."

Their ninth studio album, 2009s 'Evangelion' saw Behemoth make a giant leap from a cult black Metal act to internationally acclaimed Metal act, gracing magazine covers and even newspapers across the globe, truly breaking out of the underground despite the uncompromising and fiercely brutal ten tracks it contains.

Having the honour of being opening band at the first ever performance of Metal's Big Four - Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax - at Sonisphere Poland in 2009, Behemoth are no strangers to the big stage and this exclusive headline appearance - their first outdoor show in the UK, and only festival performance in this country in 2012 - will be a triumphant return, and one that will no doubt be talked about for years to come.

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.

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.
