the treatment

The Treatment, who are in the midst of a European tour as Special Guests to Alice Cooper, have now filmed a video for 'The Doctor' – the second featured track from their 'This Might Hurt' debut album, released via Spinefarm Records.

'The Doctor' is the follow-up to the band's first single/video, 'Drink, F**k, Fight', which gained significant international attention and was a highlighted track on Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx's US radio show.

In addition to the Alice Cooper gigs, The Treatment were also invited to open a major show for Motorhead in Belgium (Brussels, October 28th), and now their own headline UK dates have been confirmed – the 'Medication For The Nation' tour, the first time the band have headlined a run of shows in their home country.

As well as taking them to 16 venues covering England, Scotland and Wales, the tour also includes an appearance at the regular 'Hard Rock Hell' event in Prestatyn, North Wales on Friday 2nd December; the band take to the stage at 1.50pm – the second time they have appeared at this particular festival, which is already sold-out.

A five strong outfit based in the Cambridge area of the UK, The Treatment may still be tender in years, but their influences are largely drawn from the truly classic names of the hard rock genre – the likes of AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Def Leppard, Aerosmith and Guns n' Roses; add to this a deep and collective regard for the works of the Clash, the Pistols and early Dr Feelgood, and you have a band who may look as though they're barely into long trousers (drummer Dhani Mansworth turned 18 this summer), but whose music is all about big hooks and confident swagger.

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.
