Basick Records are extremely pleased to confirm that the UK's leading music retailer has asked them to showcase the label's talent at their annual new music festival: HMV's Next Big Thing.

On Monday February 6th 2012 the label will be taking over one of London's most infamous venues, The Camden Barfly, to showcase live sets from progressive Metal king Chimp Spanner along with French pairing Uneven Structure and The Algorithm, the latter performing with the much talked about young drumming phenomenon Mike Malyan.

Chimp Spanner will also be releasing his hotly anticipated new record 'All Roads Lead Here' on the very same day; as such this showcase will be doubling up as a release party!

Basick Records Director Barley comments: "2012 is going to be a HUGE year for Basick in many different ways, so HMV presenting us with an opportunity to showcase the label's rapidly growing international roster is a real honour!

"Chimp Spanner will be releasing his brand new record in conjunction with the event, so we want to see everyone turn out to make it a party we'll never forget!"

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.
