  COREY GLOVER, DUG PINNICK, DOC COYLE CONFIRMED FOR 'METAL HAS NO COLOR' AT UJN
13th April 2017



metal has no color

Ultimate Jam Night at the Whisky A Go-Go will present 'Metal Has No Color' next Tuesday evening, April 18th 2017, featuring the reunion of seminal African American Metallers Sound Barrier who will be debuting their new Tom Morello produced release.

Also appearing on the night will be Corey Glover of Living Colour, dUg Pinnick of Kings X and Doc Coyle of God Fordbid who will be joined by more than forty top musicians of various ethnicities. Doors open at 8.00pm, it's free entry and the event will be broadcast worldwide via Zinna.TV.

The evening is dedicated to "an effort to combat national divisiveness" and UJN founder and captain Chuck Wright told us:

"These days our nation is more divided than ever. States are separated into 'red' or 'blue' and people are increasingly combative. The idea of being 're-accomodated' shouldn't exist because individual civility should be cherished.

"We believe its high time for people to come together and music has always held great healing power. We're proud that Ultimate Jam Night can continue to demonstrate how race and separation can be set aside for common understanding and joy."



Sound Barrier is a pioneering all-Black Heavy Metal band that was formed in 1980. Facing racism for their choice in music among both the Black and White communities, the band persevered through extreme hatred to create music that influenced generations of Metal and rock artists including Tom Morello.

Led by vocalist Bernie Kimbell, guitarist Tracy 'Spacey T' Singleton, bassist Stanley E and drummer Dave Brown, the band produced songs that appeared on MTV and radio that resulted in other black musicians entering Metal.

For their April 18th performance, the band will perform their first new music in over thirty years, produced by Tom Morello, with Eric Valentine (Randy Jackson, Erykah Badu, Steve Vai, Steve Lukather) on drums in place of Dave Brown who sadly passed away in 2013.

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.
