It's been a long wait, but finally Devin Townsend Project is pleased to reveal the first taste of the forthcoming Retinal Circus release, with the release date to be announced very soon.

For your viewing and listening pleasure, below is a clip of the epic 'Grace' being performed, with the band joined by frequent collaborator Anneke Van Giersbergen:

Devin Townsend had this to say about the huge undertaking that is The Retinal Circus release: 'So closing in on 8 months of work, we're almost finished with the Retinal Circus! It's been a huge amount of work for everyone, from the show, down to DVD & Blu-ray authoring, artwork, logistics...(not to mention the show itself!) but we're almost there, and when watched in its entirety, it's really a heck of an experience!

To tie you over until it's out, here's a clip of the song 'Grace'...It's out of context obviously, but hopefully gives you a vague idea of what's about to come out.



It's been a ton of work for everybody and we're really quite proud of it...when the final products have been produced, we'll let you know! Fun! Whew!!!'

Retinal Circus will be released on several formats, including a lavish and bonkers limited edition befitting of the man himself, and which took months of hard work to put together. The complete list of formats is below:
Standard 2-Disc DVD
Standard 1-Disc Blu-Ray
Standard 2-CD Audio
Special Edition 2-DVD/1-Blu Ray/2-CD Box Set
Diehard Deluxe Fan Box incl. 2-DVD/1-Blu Ray/2-CD (Full details of its contents to be revealed soon)

The Retinal Circus has also been nominated for its second award this year, with the Progressive Music Awards 2013 deeming it a contender for Best Live Event. You can head over to the following link and vote for it to win: http://awards.progrockmag.com/awards/live-event



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.

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.
