  DAN LILKER OF BRUTAL TRUTH INVITES YOU TO OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL
13 June 2014

With just over one month until the next instalment of Obscene Extreme Festival kicks off, one very special guest has posted a video inviting everyone to attend this year's event. The invitation from the one and only Dan Lilker comes not just as a reminder of how great Obscene Extreme will be this year but because this will most likely be the very last chance fans will get to see Danny and Brutal Truth live in Europe.

Earlier this year Dan stated that he would be officially retiring as a full time recording and touring musician on October 18th 2014. Danny explains more: "That date is my 50th birthday, so I chose it symbolically as a significant milestone to make such a weighty decision.

"As a lot of you know, I've been an active member of the Metal scene since the early '80s with the thrash Metal bands I've been in before the formation of Brutal Truth in 1990 and I'm simply just tired of the rigors of touring mostly."

"Unlike some of my peers from the 80's who went on to sell millions of records, I have always been drawn to extreme underground Metal. I don't care about staying in 5-star hotels and having a big cushy tour bus, but I am getting tired of squeezing into a van for 8 hours after all these years on the road.

"I have always played what I believe in and that has been priority #1, but the time has come to have a little bit more stability in my life.

"Brutal Truth will still be active on the touring front until mid-October and will aim to do as much as we can in the next 9 months or so. After that, I will still have creative output with my two local bands in Rochester, New York, Nokturnal Hellstorm and Blurring, and do the occasional project tour, but yes, as of mid-October, Brutal Truth will no longer exist.

"I do realise that will be an extreme disappointment to all the grind freaks out there that have supported this band so rabidly all these years, and your enthusiasm will always have a special place in my heart, but I've made my decision, and I hope everyone can respect that."

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.
