Prepare yourself for Thursday 26th April 2012 as monstrous rock 'n' rollers Hornet return to Soho's finest The Intrepid Fox to give you another dose of their hard edged blues/punk rock.

Hornet are currently showing everybody why they are one of the most exhilarating up and coming bands on the London scene with their over the top and stand out live show which has been captivating an ever growing audience... so why would you want to be anywhere else that night?

To be honest Hornet is a band where to properly understand them, you need to be ten feet away from the thumping guitar riffs, you need to be able to feel each beat of the drums shaking the ground beneath you, you need to feel the bass resonating your very bones, you need to see the energy oozing from the singer.

Most of all their sound is so unashamedly loud and yet so honest with no effects - it's just blood, sweat and rock 'n' roll baby and given time it will come back to the mainstream... rock 'n' roll never dies... sometimes it just lays dormant for a while and once stung you will always remember Hornet!


Hornet recently had their track 'Second Hand Smoke' remixed by legendary producer Pedro Ferreira who has produced and recorded some of the last decade's most exciting artists. Pedro has worked with major rock acts such as The Darkness, Enter Shikari, Therapy? and Tank.

'Second Hand Smoke' was mastered by Ade Emsley who recently mastered Iron Maiden's 'From Fear To Eternity' and The Treatment's 'This Might Hurt'. Make sure you check it out on - it's brilliant.

Each time Hornet play London the atmosphere is second to none and they really are growing before our very eyes so catch this band in this intimate venue before it's too late! Hornet will be on stage at 10.00pm sharp and it's free entry so there's no reason not to be there.

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.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
