  DORO AND FOZZY TO PLAY BLOODSTOCK 2018
21st November 2017



bloodstock

The Queen Of Heavy Metal, Doro, will headline Bloodstock's Sophie Lancaster stage on Friday night, 10th August 2018.

With a career spanning over thirty years and seventeen studio albums under her belt, including four with Warlock, Doro's current label Nuclear Blast recently celebrated her thirty year anniversary with a treble DVD box set, 'Strong & Proud'.

Get a taster of what Doro does best with this live cut of 'Raise Your Fist In The Air' from Wacken.



Former WWE wrestling World Champion Chris Jericho's band, Fozzy, join Sunday's Ronnie James Dio main stage line-up. Currently rampaging across Europe, the Century Media outfit dropped their seventh album, 'Judas', last month and have racked up more than ten million views of the title track's video, which you can check out here:



Swedish Death Metalllers Bloodbath will lay waste to the main stage on Friday. Guitarist Anders Nyström tells us:

"After eight years, our time has come to put the blood back in Bloodstock!"

Bloodbath feature members of Pardise Lost, Katatonia and Opeth and you can chek out their video for 'Church Of Vestitas', taken from 2014s 'Grand Morbid Funeral' opus right here:



Landing a Saturday spot on the main stage are Greek symphonic Death Metal squad, Septicflesh. First formed back in 1990, the pioneers unveiled their tenth record, 'Codex Omega', in September. Record label, Season Of Mist are streaming the whole beast including a 360° video for 'Dante's Inferno' right here:



With Friday night headliners Judas Priest, Saturday night headliners Gojira and Sunday headliners Nightwish already announced, along with Emperor, Devildriver, Watain, Combichrist, Nails, Orden Ogan and Memoriam so far, 2018 is shaping up to be another stellar year for Bloodstock.

The first wave of Serpents Lair VIP tickets are now sold out and the final allocation, the last batch of VIP deluxe packages and a limited amount of VIP upgrades priced at £145 (for those who’ve already bought 'early bird' tickets will become available at 9.00am on 16th December in the ticket store right here.

Weekend tickets are still available in very limited numbers at an 'early bird' price (just £125 for four days of Metal fun) so grab yours now at the ticket store right here if you want to save £20.

To keep up with inflation and increased costs in 2018, standard weekend tickets with camping will increase from last year's £139 to £145 once the 'early bird' allocation sells out. Camper van pitches are also available now.

If you already know you can only attend for a single day, sign up for a day ticket reminder email as day tickets do not go on sale until next summer. Register your day ticket interest right here.

Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th-12th August 2018. Get additional informationright here.

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.

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.
