  MADBALL REVEAL OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR 'BORN STRONG' FEATURING CANDACE PUOPOLO FROM WALLS OF JERICHO
23 June 2014





NYHC legends Madball have premiered the official video for their new track 'Born Strong' online. The track and video feature Candace Puopolo (Walls Of Jericho) on guest vocals.

The track is taken from the band's forthcoming album 'Hardcore Lives', which is set for release on June 30, 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The album was tracked & engineered by famed Unearth guitarist Ken Susi and mixed & mastered by long time collaborator Zeuss (Hatebreed, Agnostic Front, Soulfly, Terror, Whitechapel). Official promo photos were taken by Lamb Of God's very own Randall D. Blythe.

MetalTalk's Jools Green has reviewed 'Hardcore Lives' which you can read here .

Iconic frontman Freddy Cricien explains the album title as follows:

"I shouted 'Hardcore Lives' on Madball's first release, Ball Of Destruction - I was twelve then. It wasn't pre planned or written down... it was an ad-lib that I just threw out there and we kept it! Back then there was no choice really, not the way we were recording - two track live at Don Fury's... NYHC style! I feel the sentiment behind the expression still holds true today, maybe even more so. Hence the reason we finally chose to use it as a title.

"Sure, it's about waving the flag for our genre/culture, etc. - I've always felt that "we as a scene" had to scream just a lil louder... to be heard! That said, Hardcore Lives at least to us, is not just about a cool 'catchphrase' - it's about that rebellious spirit that doesn't give in...in life, music, whatever. It's about growing, evolving, and maintaining your integrity in the process. It's about family, overcoming adversity, and respect. All the things that matter inside and outside of the music realm. It's for everyone and anyone with an open mind and heart."



Hardcore Lives will be available as limited edition digipak and on vinyl, both including two additional bonus tracks: 'The Beast' which also appeared on 2012's EP Rebellion and 'Spit On Your Grave' from 1994's landmark release Set It Off - both tracks have been exclusively re-recorded for the inclusion on Hardcore Lives.

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.
