  NILE AND MAYHEM CONFIRM EXCLUSIVE UK APPEARANCES AT BLOODSTOCK 2012
24th January 2012

bloodstock open air



Bloodstock Open Air has added another two fantastic acts to a line up already boasting the top names from the world of Metal. The deadly double dose announcement comes in the form of Floridian Death Metal behemoths Nile and Norwegian Black Metal Legends Meyhem, who both make their Bloodstock debut.

With four critically acclaimed albums, a few EPs and several world tours under their belt, Nile have raised the bar for extreme Metal bands musically, lyrically and conceptually. Guitarist/vocalist Karl Sanders says: "The members of Nile are eagerly looking forward to our first-ever appearance at Bloodstock this year. Let Metal Take Place!"

Boasting withering live performances that are nothing short of legendary, expect Nile to deliver one of the most crushing sets of the weekend.

When it comes to the definitive history of Black Metal, Mayhem's name is at the forefront. Through the church burnings, murder, imprisonments and myopic teenage nationalism, Mayhem has endured and survived, turning the circus-like atmosphere into a sustained musical career, in the studio and more importantly, on stage, without losing any of their spit and bile along the way.

With a live show oozing evil and darkness both sonically and visually, Mayhem's only UK show of 2012 will leave Catton Hall in a bloody mess, and all the better for it.

Bloodstock Open Air 2012 takes place at Catton Hall August 9th - 12th. Line Up So Far:

RONNIE JAMES DIO STAGE: ALICE COOPER - BEHEMOTH - ANVIL – WATAIN - PARADISE LOST - DIMMU BORGIR - HATEBREED - CORROSION OF CONFORMITY - SANCTUARY - GRAND MAGUS - THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER - DEICIDE - NILE - MAYHEM

SOPHIE LANCASTER STAGE: ORANGE GOBLIN - ANAAL NATHRAKH -

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.
