UK Metal band Huron have decided to release a charity single in aid of Help For Heroes.

Huron, a well-known and highly followed band in the UK Metal scene, have released three studio albums worldwide and their fourth is being released February 2014.

The band decided to do this due to the escalation in physical and mental after care that is required for the injured serviceman and also the vital support needed for their families. Huron are based in Plymouth, Devon so they have strong connections with all the armed forces in the area whether a family member or a close friend, they have seen at first hand the effects of what being in the armed forces has on people and so 'The Eternal Sea' was created.

Sean Kenivel, vocalist said "The song was initially written in remembrance of a close friend of the bands called John. John served on HMS Ardent in the Falklands War.The frigate was hit and sunk by an Argentinian missile and lives were lost. John survived but when he returned from the war his war had just started he never got over the experience and suffered from bouts of depression and in turn lost everything including his life. The understanding of PWS (Post War Syndrome) was still in its early stages."

The lyrics of the song are made up from 3 sources, a passage from the bible, extracts from a short poem by Sean Kenivel and actual comments made from John. The music was written and performed by ex-Huron member Neil Sims and was remixed and produced by Huron guitarist Rimmy Sinclair.

Huron used vocalist Sean Kenievel's original vocals from 2011 and guest vocalist Melanie Mclaren's vocals were recorded and mixed in the track in 2013. The song is an acoustic masterpiece that some fans of the band will find is a total departure from the heavy sounds the band are known for.

The song was first released in 2011 on Huron's 'Mary Celeste' album and was part 1 of two songs that were released on the album.

On this remixed / re mastered version of The Eternal Sea, UK singer/songwriter Melanie Mclaren appears as a special guest. Melanie heard the song and liked it so much she sang it at one of her live shows unaware that someone had filmed her performance and uploaded it to YouTube.

At the time Huron and Melanie shared the same management company and they suggested that they should see the footage and once Huron watched it they invited her to be part of the project.

Knievel said "We all take it for granted each day by getting up going to the supermarket buying our groceries, dropping the kids to school and going to work, basically having a normal peaceful life, we have this freedom because of the brave servicemen and servicewomen who keep threats and conflicts from our shores. So whatever you're political stand point, please support this fantastic cause for Help For Heroes"

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.
