  GUITAR LEGEND BERNIE TORMÉ CREATES HIS FIRST SOLO ALBUM FOR 15 YEARS
4 April 2014




Irish guitarist Bernie Tormé is literally a living legend, having played for Ozzy Osbourne and Ian Gillan amongst others. The next step of his saga is a new solo album - the first for 15 years - plus raising money for charity along the way.

It has been said of Irish guitarist Bernie Tormé that he plays his Stratocaster through a Marshall as though he knew them in a previous life. However, it's this life that Bernie loves, and he is more excited than ever to announce he is writing this new album.

Pre-orders are available via Pledge Music, which hit the target in 24 hours. 10% of all money raised over the goal will be donated to The Teenage Cancer Trust.

Bernie's career includes axing for Ozzy Osbourne, after stepping in & saving the day in the aftermath of another legends tragic death - the one and only Randy Rhoads. He was an integral part of ex-Deep Purple frontman Ian Gillan's massive world-touring band Gillan - with whom he wrote and played on four top ten albums and many hits, including the biggest selling singles, 'New Orleans' and 'Trouble'.

He formed Desperado with Twisted Sister front man Dee Snider, which also featured ex-Iron Maiden drummer, the great late Clive Burr. He played alongside celebrated keyboard player Vincent Crane (ex-The Crazy World of Arthur Brown) as a member of psychedelic doom rockers Atomic Rooster. He has constantly performed with his own bands as well, including Electric Gypsies and Torme, bands that have rocked and released hit records all over the world.

The new record is planned for release after completion of the pledge campaign in 3 months time. There is still time to grab some of the truly unique things on offer, including guitar lessons with the man himself; his original stage jacket seen in the album cover to Gillan's 'Mr Universe'; personal acoustic gigs in your home; the chance to perform onstage during an encore at a show - and, best of all, the original lake placid blue 1964 Fender Stratocaster given to Bernie by the one and only Ozzy Osbourne is up for grabs at the more-Metal-than-Metal price of £66,600.

"I hope you become part of this album and pledge, and if so I thank you for your generosity and for your continued support over so many years - and thank you from my heart for enabling me to do the thing I love most, to make music for you".

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.
