  SKINNY PUPPY RELEASE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR 'ILLISIT'
21st November 2013





Canadian electronic act Skinny Puppy have released a stunning video for the song 'illisiT' which was directed by Jason Alacrity and is taken from the band's recently released new album, 'Weapon'.

Formed in 1984, Skinny Puppy are firmly established as a groundbreaking voice in the world of electronic music, fearless in both their musical experimentation and in voicing a stance on the issues of our times. 'Weapon' is the stunning new album by the band, standing as a commentary on the concurrent glorification of gun culture and simultaneous horror at the devastation that guns can cause.

Initially envisioned as an experimental side project by cEvin Key while he was in the new wave band Images In Vogue, Skinny Puppy evolved into a full-time project with the addition of vocalist Nivek Ogre. Since their formation, the band have relased over a dozen albums and survived the loss of musician Dwayne Goettel who was in the band from 1986 until his death in 1995 after an apparent heroin overdose. Ministry main-man Al Jourgensen joined the band as a guest musician in 1989.

The band have announced an extensive thirty date North American tour for early 2014 that commences on 24th January and runs until 5th March.

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.
