Featuring guest appearances from Robin Zander, Paul Di'Anno, Rex Brown, Todd Kearns, Brent Fitz, Scott Reeder, Maria Brink and Jeremy Spencer.

The newest band ready to take aim at the creative void in the hard rock world, Red Dragon Cartel, are set to release their debut album via Frontiers Records. The self-titled debut by the band made up of guitar legend Jake E Lee, bassist Ronnie Mancuso, singer D.J. Smith and drummer Jonas Fairley is set for release on January 27th 2014 in the UK and on the following day in the US. Jake E Lee is best known for his work in Badlands and as guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne on Bark at the Moonand The 'Ultimate Sin' albums.

Red Dragon Cartel also features various guest appearances from some of music's most notable faces including legendary Cheap Trick vocalist Robin Zander, original Iron Maiden vocalist Paul Di'Anno, Kill Devil Hill/Pantera bassist Rex Brown, Slash's Conspirators Todd Kearns and Brent Fitz and In This Moment front woman Maria Brink.

The album was produced by Ronnie Mancuso and Jake E Lee and was executive produced, mixed and mastered by Kevin Churko (In This Moment, Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch).

From the opening riff of 'Deceived' to final sustained piano chord of 'Exquisite Tenderness', it is clear Red Dragon Cartel has created an album that stands amongst some of the greatest hard rock albums of all time. Infectious songs such as 'Shout It Out', 'Wasted' and 'Slave' showcase the band's ability to write memorable hooks and vocal melodies.

Robin Zander of Cheap Trick lends his voice to the track 'Feeder' and a lyric video for the song can be seen here.



Maria Brink of In This Moment lends her unique vocals to the track 'Big Mouth'. Paul Di'Anno and Sass Jordan also lend their talents to the band's debut. Jake E Lee's trademark playing style instantly shines through and picks up right where he left off.

The album will be available for pre-order on Amazon soon. The album can be pre-ordered from iTunes and comes with an instant download of 'Deceived'.





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 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.
