the evil inside

Having just inked a record deal that secures a worldwide release for their brand new album, London-based Gibraltarian rock act Breed 77 will launch it first in the UK to coincide with a UK tour (see dates below).

'The Evil Inside' is a dark, brooding affair from this ever evolving band, metallic yet melodic, intense and often introspective, yet in many ways the band's most accessible work to date. Solid riffs underpin each song, enriched with the strong twin guitar attack of Danny Felice and Pedro Capparos, while singer Paul Isola's multifaceted, unique voice provides goosebump moments throughout. Driven by the powerful rhythm section of bassist Stuart Cavilla and new drummer Andre Joyzi, Breed 77 add traditional flamenco influences, Latino rhythms and a Spanish/Moorish flair and spirit indicative of their roots to thoroughly modern hard rock foundations.

With album opener Drown made available as a free-to-download single prior to Xmas, a radio edit of the outstanding Bring On The Rain will be the first official single from The Evil Inside. A hypnotic Spanish guitar line leads into a truly memorable, uplifting chorus that is totally at odds with the subject matter of the song, which the band describe as "an anthem to desperation and, at the same time, an empty call for accountability. The world has gone to shit and it seems we have very little say in what goes on. We are resigned to the fact that it cannot be fixed: ‘Let the rain come and wash it all away'…"

Other album highlights include Fear, which is about the fear of failure and the self-doubt that we encounter at every turn. In every life there are moments when you question where you are in your life – am I happy? Will it ever happen? Did I make the right choices? The imposing refrain of the chorus with its repeated mantra of "it goes on and on" has elevated it into an instant live favourite.

The title song reflects on the darker side of the human condition, the part of us that hates and loathes, the part that most of us repress... or else we'd all be murderers! The slowburning 'Motionless' is an epic, haunting ballad, an ode to introspection, a conversation alone, a moment frozen in time when you feel the world is passing by and you're stuck in an involuntary stasis. Some last words as you stand teetering over the edge - on the verge of giving up.

With an already distinguished career that has seen the band release five acclaimed albums and enjoy UK Top 40 hit single success, 'The Evil Inside' is a more than worthy new addition to their considerable canon.

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.


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.


Wacken 2018 takes place from 2nd to 4th August 20218 and as with Wacken Winter Nights, if you have never experienced all it has to offer, then you owe it to yourself to remedy that.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

As well as being the greatest Heavy Metal festival in the world, it is without a doubt the Mecca of Metal and the one thing that every single person who loves our music should have on their bucket list.

For 2018, MetalTalk have joined forces with Wacken-Open-Air to help you get to Wacken easily and inexpensively and you can peruse the ticket and travel options right here.
