  MetalTalk WRITERS' BEST SINGLES OF 2013
26th December 2013

Collated by Johnny Main



Single's aren't as popular as they were ten or even five years ago, but these are still vaild vehicles for releasing music, for both smaller bands and firmly established ones. Here's a selection of our favourite singles from 2013.

Dutch Michael

lee aaron

Recorded by Canada's NWOCHM artists, this is an EP featuring 80s rock royalty Lee Aaron, Brian Vollmer, Nick Walsh, Carl Dixon, Darby Mills and Russ Dwarf with Canadian guitar Guru Sean Kelly at the helm as producer alongside Aaron Murray. They should hold their heads high with pride as they have not only set about representing a decade in Canadian Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, but have injected some life in to the music of these re-recorded classics.

Jools Green

cursed kingdom

Cursed Kingdom's 'The Wasteland' was created under potentially dangerous circumstances – something which seems to bring out the best in musicians, with defiance seemingly aiding their creativity. This debut release from the Iranian Death Metal outfit is one of those releases, and I'm looking forward to hearing a full length release from them.

Mark Taylor

deep purple

It has to be 'Vincent Price' by Deep Purple, for me a band who carry on screaming with this spoofy horror track which features a cool chilling guitar riff from Steve Morse. Not necessary the best single of the year, but certainly one I can't stop playing.

Johnny Main

monument

The recently released Monument single 'Runaway' is the band's first release from their forthcoming 'Renegade' album and if 'Runaway' is anything to go by, the album is going to be absolutely spectacular. Monument are a classic British Heavy Metal band styled against the footprints set by Iron Maiden over the last thirty years but with their own twist – the Monument for Donington campaign starts here, right?

temperance movement

'Pride' by The Temperance Movement. See the Best Band article!

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.
