  BREAKING NEWS: ALESTORM, GRAVE DIGGER, EVIL SCARECROW AND MANY MORE TO PLAY HRH METAL 18
17th July 2017



hrh metal

At last, after a gap of several decades, the mighty Grave Digger are confirmed for British shores and an appearance at HRH Metal in Birmingham in February 2018. England's second city will be well and truly healed by Metal.

This HRH Metal is easily the best yet and will be held at O2 Academy, Birmingham between 17th and 18th February 2018. It will bring together more Metal than the Mines of Moria and forges in Asgard combined, and boasts a truly talent-packed line-up.

HRH boss Jonni Davis enthusiastically told us:

"Metal has always been part of our lives here at HRH and we listen to our community to make sure we choose the acts the fans want to hear. This year's HRH Metal line-up is proof of that."

Top of the bill are the one and only Alestorm, the leading purveyors of Pirate Metal. They'll be bringing their vibrant piratical sound to HRH Metal which is ideal for reeling, carousing, chanting and raiding any galleons that happen to be passing, which is unlikely to happen in central Birmingham.

German Heavy Metal masters Grave Digger are famed for their up-tempo, ballsy tunes with heavy power riffs and as mentioned, it's been way too long since they last played on British soil. Grave Digger mainman Chris Boltendahl was special guest on Steve Göldby Talks Metal recently and you can hear the whole conversation right here.



Captain Christopher Bowes was also special guest on Steve Göldby Talks Metal recently and you can hear the whole conversation right here.



Other great bands announced for HRH Metal include Evil Scarecrow, Memoriam, Elvenking, Power Quest, Haerken, Fury, Attica Rage, Desert Storm, Ballsdeep, Monument, Kaine, Cypher 16, Collibus, Fire Red Empress, Gravil, Warcrab, Footprints In The Custard, Dakesis, Lifer, Torous, Sister Shotgun, Skarthia, Elimination, Nightmare World, Trivax, Ironrat, The Mighty Wraith, Vice, Incinery, Metaprism, The Face of Ruin, Sodomized Cadaver, XIII, Masters Call, Wrath Of The Gods, Ashen Crown, and Devils Playground.

That's a whole lot of Metal and easily the best bill we have seen for 2018 so far.

Check out Alestorm on HRH TV at Hammerfest 9.

As it's an HRH event, HRH Metal will be a close-knit community experience, where fans with real passion for the genre meet up, rock out to some incredible bands and sets, and of course enjoy revels and shenanigans with old friends and new. Great acts, chosen by the fans, with quality accommodation - The HRH way.

HRH events sell out very quickly, so book soon to avoid disappointment, either online at www.hrhmetal.com or ring Bex on 0207 193 9564. For six days only, you'll pay £19.90 for full weekend pass with no booking fee. Now that's a bargain.

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.
