16th January 2012

malefice



Malefice have announced a one off show in February in Swindon. They will play The Furnace on February 4, 2012 with support from I Defy, Kinasis and Deliverence.

Prior to that Malefice will team up with football legend Marcus Hahnemann for the next Jägermeister 'Ice Cold' Studio Session, where rock bands and icons meet for the first time in a recording studio and 'break the ice' by working on a track together. This takes place at London's famous Strongroom Studios on January 17th.

Marcus Hahnemann, US international goalkeeper (Best goalkeeper in the world - 2009/2010 Castrol Performance Index) who is currently playing for Everton is a well known Heavy Metal fan but this will be the first time he has ever taken his passion for Metal into a recording studio.

Marcus said: "Today I have come down to London for the Arsenal game. Getting ready for the game always includes some heavy rock to get me going. But I can't stop thinking about when I am coming back down here in a few weeks to record with Malefice! So hopefully my love of music and their love of football with translate to a really cool track!"

Reading band Malefice are one of the leading exponents of modern British Heavy Metal and released their album 'Awaken The Tides' to critical acclaim earlier in the year.

Vocalist, Dale Butler commented: "We're really stoked to be recording a special track with Marcus Hahnemann. Given that before every game he listens to Five Finger Death Punch or Slipknot to 'get himself psyched' for the game has to be a pretty good indicator of where his musical tastes are! We even have a track 'Outnumbered/Outgunned' on our album 'Awaken The Tides' which is all about that rush of adrenaline you get when you're with your mates at the terraces in the away end on a Saturday afternoon, so this collaboration of football and Metal is gonna be something you won't want to miss"

The collaboration will be streamed exclusively on the Jägermeister UK Facebook page from February 1st 2012 as well as photos and extended footage of the recording process.


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.
