  EMPEROR, DEVILDRIVER AND NAILS ADDED TO BLOODSTOCK 2018 BILL
10th October 2017



bloodstock

Bloodstock 2018 now has three tremendous additions to the bill with Emperor, Devildriver and Nails all playing at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th to 12th August 2018.

Emperor join Friday's bill in the Ronnie James Dio main stage special guest slot in a UK exclusive appearance and frontman Ihsahn tells us that they'll be performing a special set based around one of their classic albums.

"We're finally bringing the 20th Anniversary show for 'Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk' to the UK. We'll be performing the album in its entirety and look forward to celebrating with everyone at Bloodstock."

Check out a stream of the atmospheric opus here and get excited for next August.



Californian circle pit kings Devildriver step into a main stage slot on Sunday and frontman Dez Fafara tells us:

"Devildriver is playing Bloodstock in 2018 and we couldn't be more fucking ready to bring the heavy and get the whole festival moving!

"We are thankful for the opportunity and can't wait to see everyone there! Get ready to get the fuck in the pit!"

Check out the band doing what they do best in the video for the title track of their current studio album, 'Trust No One'.



Hotly-tipped, super brutal three-piece, Nails land a Ronnie James Dio main stage slot on Sunday in another UK exclusive show. Frontman Todd Jones tells us:

"I've been following Bloodstock and looking at their advertisements online for the past few years, admiring how great a job the festival does having a great mix of underground bands and some of Metal' biggest and finest. We're proud to finally say we're part of what Bloodstock is doing to fight the good fight! We'll see all you motherfuckers at Bloodstock!"

If you're not familiar with Nails, check out the video for 'You Will Never Be One Of Us' right here.



Already announced for Bloodstock 2018 are Friday night headliners Judas Priest, Saturday night headliners Gojira and Sunday headliners Nightwish.

VIP tickets are on sale now and already selling fast, as are the first wave of Serpents Lair VIP tickets (priced £290) and deluxe VIP packages which are all available in the ticket store right here.

Standard weekend tickets are also currently available at a tremendous 'early bird' price of just £125 for four days of Metal fun so grab yours now right here.

Serpents Lair VIP tickets guarantee your VIP spot.

Meanwhile, remind yourself of this year’s festival by watching this exclusive live footage of Friday night headliners, Amon Amarth performing 'Guardians Of Asgaard'.



Bloodstock Director and band booker Vicky Hungerford tells us:

"We've been blown away by yet another incredible year in 2017! Our first sold out festival, great weather, stunning performances from bands across all stages and the atmosphere this year had to be the best yet.

"We love and appreciate the Bloodstock faithful, both old and new and they've certainly shown us what the Metal community is all about. We've hit the ground running for 2018 with two perfect headliners already announced and one more to follow shortly... exciting times are ahead."

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

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.

Already announced for Wacken 2018 are Judas Priest, Nightwish, Running Wild (exclusive), Arch Enemy, Dirkschneider, Doro (Special Anniversary Show), In Extremo, Sepultura, Amorphis, Amaranthe, Firewind, W.A.R., Belphegor, Mantar, Knorkator, Deserted Fear, Watain, Night Demon, Epica, Knorkator, Belphegor, Firewind, Deserted Fear and many more and we'll have more Wacken 2018 announcements during December.

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.
