  DEICIDE CONFIRM ONLY UK APPEARANCE OF 2012 AT BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR
10th January 2012

bloodstock



Bloodstock Open Air starts the year with another fantastic announcement for its 2012 event at Catton Hall this summer, confirming Floridian death Metal legends Deicide's only UK show of the year.

Always at the forefront of the death Metal movement, Deicide was an original pioneer of the brutal sound and imagery associated with the Florida death Metal scene. In 1987, Glen Benton and Steve Asheim teamed to launch one of the most talked about, controversial and venomous crusades in Metal history and have since risen to international notoriety, releasing two of the highest selling death Metal albums of all time.

Deicide quickly became known for their technical yet brutal sound as much as the rumors that surrounded them. After famously marching into the office of Monte Conner (Roadrunner Records) and demanding "Sign us, you fucking asshole!" the band went on to create the definitive sound of 90s death Metal thanks to their ability to play technical solos at blazing speeds with overlapping riffs.

Deicide also created an astounding ten studio albums that have changed the face of the extreme Metal scene.

Now they bring their blasphemous brutality to Bloodstock for the first time, offering the only chance to catch them live in the UK this year.

With a line up including headline sets from Alice Cooper and Behemoth, Norwegian Black Metal superstars Dimmu Borgir's only UK show of 2012, as well as over 100 bands including Anvil, Paradise Lost, Watain, Orange Goblin, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Swedish Metal merchants Grand Magus, there is no more Metal place in the UK than Bloodstock Open Air.


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.
