  INSOMNIUM ANNOUNCE EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR
26 May 2014





Insomnium are pleased to announce they will head out on a European headline tour this October / November in support of their new album "Shadows Of The Dying Sun". The run will feature direct support from Fleshgod Apocalypse and Stam1na.

Insomnium's Markus Vanhala comments: "There comes a time finally in October/November that we can hit the European autobahns and nightly motorways again, deliver the goods in concerts and spread the melancholic word of "Shadows Of The Dying Sun" album for all of you! Our second headliner tour takes us to nine countries during 18 shows, and needless to say we're anxious to play the long headliner shows.

"The first shows in Finland week ago were definitely nights to remember, so we're on a roll with our new one! The main support of the shows will be Fleshgod Apocalypse from Italy with their hyper speed epic metal and the openers will be our good friends from Finland - Stam1na. Stam1na is one of the biggest national metal bands in Finland, playing always sold-out shows and headlining the festivals and we're just so happy to give them a chance to play outside of Finland and show their phenomenal skills and energy in international waters! See you soon folks!"

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.

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.

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.
