Earlier this year Swedish Melodic Death Metal pioneers At The Gates hit the headlines after confirming that they had signed a deal with Century Media and would begin work on a brand new album.

News spread like wildfire as 'At War With Reality' was announced as the title for the forthcoming record with recording beginning in June/July and a tentative release in October/November 2014. 'At War With Reality' will be the first new release from At The Gates in 19 years and follows the highly regarded 'Slaughter Of The Soul' album which was released in 1995.

Today we can announce that At The Gates have been confirmed for their very first ever Irish show on 31st January 2015 at The Academy, Dublin and will be supported by UK extreme Metallers Bloodshot Dawn. Bloodshot Dawn vocalist/guitarist Josh McMorran comments: "Bloodshot Dawn could not be happier to return to Dublin and play our biggest club show to date! Not to mention supporting a pioneer of our musical direction, At The fucking Gates!!! We are going to bring a set of new songs from album 2 and this will be our first Dublin show with our new master blaster Janne Jaloma! See you in the pit!"

Bloodshot Dawn recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their as of yet untitled second album, a target that was smashed in only 4 days! The band have since announced that the album, which is slated for release October 2014, will contain a host of special guests including Sven De Caluwé (Aborted), Chris Amott (ex-Arch Enemy, Armageddon), Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry), Teemu Mäntysaari (Wintersun) & Andy James (ex-Sacred Mother Tongue.

Producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Persefone, Aborted, Xerath, Dyscarnate etc.) has also been announced as the man behind the desk who will be mixing and mastering the album.

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.
