One of the best bands at the moment truly representing all that is British and Metal is due to be release their debut album with Transcend Music, on November 28th 2011.

After the success of their 3-track EP released earlier this year, Elimination took to the road supporting Evile on their UK Tour and have since been committed to writing and recording and the result is one giant ball of British Steel forged in Middle Earth:

"'The Blood Of Titans' demonstrates a definite progression in terms of both our songwriting and musicianship from our last record. This has been helped to no end by the amount of shows we've played together, and the intense rehearsing, and writing schedule we've had over the past year" says guitarist Dave Spicer, "The sound on this record is much more refined, and totally representative of where Elimination are right now."

'The Blood Of Titans' has progressed beyond the confinements of their previous 'Thrash' tag; embracing melodic interventions and a heightened dynamism, they have now outgrown the predictable content of Thrash.

Normally, in avoiding their fate, most bands fall into the path of a hyper-clinical 'modern' sound, but Elimination have remained true to their musicianship and songwriting skills and turned their attention instead to the production:

"The production on this album is more akin to records like 'Clayman' and 'Slaughter of the Soul'. We spent a lot more time in the studio with this record, and we think that it really shows. There has been a lot more care put into the making of this record, both by the band and James Dunkley, who engineered, mixed and produced this album."

This isn't just a new album from Elimination. This album marks a new era.

'The Blood Of Titans' is mature in every sense of the word; The messages are consistent and the delivery is confident. It knows what it wants to do, it know what it wants to say and it knows exactly how to achieve both. Fact.

And of course what's an album launch if you can't have a party and a live gig to celebrate! Get yourselves down to PJ McGinty's in Ipswich on December 16th to be Eliminated.



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.
