  METALFEST 2012 - MEGADETH CONFIRMED AS HEADLINER! EXCLUSIVE FESTIVAL SHOWS 2012
18th January 2012

megadeth



Strap yourselves in, dear friends, because Megadeth have been confirmed to headline Megadeth 2012! The festival organisers say that the band are going to play exclusively at Metalfest in Germany, Austria, Croatia, Italy, Poland and Czech Republic and say that you won't see Megadeth play any other summer festivals 2012 in these countries!

Megadeth, who released milestone albums such as 'Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?', 'Rust In Peace' or 'Countdown To Extinction' have eternalized themselves in Metal history and are rightly on top of the Heavy Metal movement.

In almost 30 years of their career they've achieved what others can only dream of, sold millions of records and among Metal fans all over the world, Megadeth are considered to be favorites no matter what. A Megadeth record belongs to every Metal household around the globe, without doubt.

Recently the band released their new work called 'Th1rt3en'. Their last effort 'Endgame' had already proven to be a step into the right direction and 'Th1rt3en' should leave all critics speechless, once again. They sound as aggressive, raw and rampant as ever, Mustaine's distinctive guitar play appears to be hugely currish and the riffing feels sharp as a butchers knife.

Dave Mustaine's vocals sound very much sinister and the rhythm section offers those furious riffs a pounding and grooving counterpart, that makes tracks such as 'Whose Life (Is It Anyways?)', 'Fast Lane' or '13' a roaring and crushing statement of Megadeth!

You can watch the new official Megadeth video for 'Public Enemy No. 1' on the band's official site by clicking here.

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

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.
