Bible Of The Devil's sixth full-length album and third for Rome, Italy, based label Cruz Del Sur Music, 'For the Love of Thugs And Fools', is an assembly of raging Rock n' Roll songs that encapsulate the band's saga musically and personally over the years since the last full-length.

Returning to Phantom Manor studios in Chicago to work with engineer Mike Lust, who has engineered numerous BOTD recordings in the past, the band sought to emphasize their trademark bludgeoning two-guitar attack and mammoth hooks with an increased attention to soaring, anthemic vocals.

1. Sexual Overture/While You Were Away
2. Out For Blood
3. Raw & Order
4. The Parcher
5. I Know What Is Right (In The Night)
6. Anytime
7. Can't Turn Off The Sun

9. Night Street

'For the Love of Thugs And Fools' is viewed by the band as a document of the many characters they have encountered through the life of the band, whether it be in love, loss, friendship, or hatred. Having toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe since the band's inception in late 1999 and living in the volatile urban environment Chicago, where encounters with crime, violence, and 'street justice' are unavoidable, there has been much subject matter for the band to draw from.

Embracing the philosophy that a bottle of whiskey and some loud guitar is often the best cure available for these challenges and ordeals, Bible Of The Devil have chosen to document their grievances in the form of one devastating Rock n' Roll platter.

Said singer/guitarist Mark Hoffmann: "The few years since the last full-length have been like a dare. A dare to create a soaring, punishing Rock n' Roll record of this magnitude. It is a dare that we have been forced to answer ourselves."

Fans of Bible Of The Devil can expect yet another collection of fist-pumping heavy guitar classics-in-the-making, 'For The Love Of Thugs And Fools'.

Bible Of The Devil is a four-piece high-intensity Rock n' Roll Metal band from Chicago, Illinois. With numerous albums and 7" singles to their credit, the band has carved themselves quite a niche in the heavy rock underground over the past 13 years as carriers of the flame of classic, loud, hook-filled guitar rock, yet with their own modern interpretation.

The band has toured the United States and mainland Europe extensively during this period, and continue to do so in 2012, whether or not Mayan predictions of an apocalypse prove to be true. Bible Of The Devil's sixth full-length album entitled, 'For The Love Of Thugs And Fools', is to be released in May 2012 via Rome, Italy's Cruz Del Sur Music and is Bible Of The Devil's eagerly anticipated follow-up to their 2008 release, 'Freedom Metal'.

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.
