Veronica Freeman, Benedictum



Warriors of Metal, Inc. is sad to announce a cancellation and yet elated to announce an exciting replacement on the roster of the Warriors Of Metal Fest V Open Air to take place on June 29th and 30th at the Frontier Ranch in Pataskala, Ohio this summer.

WOM Fest IV Open Air veteran Veronica Freeman of Benedictum contacted Warriors of Metal, Inc. last night with the following statement: "Benedictum will not be able to attend the WOM Festival this year. We do so regret this and want everyone to know how much we love and support Datis and his efforts and every sponsor and fan that helps to make this festival happen. Our schedule will need to remain open at that time to facilitate work on the new album and work around some tight scheduling. We wish each and every band an amazing time and each and every fan throw your fists in the air in support of this event!! Love to everyone. V / Benedictum"

The festival organisers commented: "While we are saddened by this turn of events, we do understand Benedictum's tight scheduling issues, wish them well and hope for a great 4th album from them. We are, therefore, privileged to announce that former Metal Blade and Atlantic Records recording artists of Banshee (currently with Snowblind Productions) will replace Benedictum on our line-up this year. Banshee has come back together after 21 years to record their 4th album called 'Mindslave' which is slated to be released within the next couple of months.

"This will be Banshee's very first Open Air Metalfest appearance since the release of their new album and it is interesting to note that the three year WOM Fest veteran vocalist, George Call (ex-Omen) of Aska and Violent Storm will now be attending his fourth consecutive year at Warriors of Metal Fest Open Air for his fifth performance at our Fest with three different bands!!!

"Aska headlined the Friday night of WOM Fest II in 2009, George sang with Omen, headlining the Friday night of WOM Fest III, and he sand with Aska, co-headlining the Saturday night of WOM Fest III in 2010 with Cage, and of course Aska headlined the Saturday night of WOM Fest IV in 2011!

"So now we welcome George Call back among our Metal family, friends and fans as he fronts the return to form of the late 80s Power Metallers of Banshee. We would like to thank Chuck Hopkins of Banshee for giving us this opportunity to showcase his band at our Metalfest this year."

Banshee has an officially unreleased track called 'Unearthed' on the Warriors of Metal Fest V Open Air 2012 Double CD Compilation that will be availabe to 2000 fans attending Keep It True XV Festival in Germany in less than two week's time and all the fans attending the Warriors Of Metal Fest V Open Air this year. Tickets are available at www.warriorsofmetalfest.com.

Weekend passes for adults (17 and up) are just $50 and Weekend 4-Packs for adults (groups of 4 people) are only $40 per person. Adult single day tickets are $30 for each day and $25 per person in a 4-Pack for a single day ticket. Teenager tickets (11-16) are only $15 for the whole weekend, Friday only or Saturday only. Kids under 11 get in for free. Camping is free and ticket buyers can also pre-order their Fest t-shirts at the time of their ticket purchase.


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.
