  SAXON RELEASE NEW 'THUNDERBOLT' VIDEO
1st December 2017



saxon

Saxon have releaesd their new video for 'Thunderbolt', the title track of their new album which will be released on February 2nd 2018.



The 'Thunderbolt' album will feature original artwork by long time Saxon collaborator Paul Raymond Gregory.

Biff tells us:

"This is album twenty-two and it's called 'Thunderbolt'. It's a storming, smashing, thundering collection of tracks we've been crafting with producer Andy Sneap and it's finished ready to be unleashed.

"Stand clear and fasten your seat belts!"

Three weeks after release, the band will be embarking on the first leg of the 'Thunderbolt 2018 European Tour' where they will be joined by Diamond Head and Rock Goddess and Magnum on the Hull date only.

Dates for 'Thunderbolt Tour Part 2' will be announced in early 2018.

Biff continues:

"Ok, this is part 1 of the colossal 'Thunderbolt World Tour' and we're going to be touring the whole of 2018 so get your tickets and join the ride.

"It's gonna be fast and furious, dark and brooding. Monumental riffing and screaming vocals, loud and proud, it's going to be a Saxon tour, unique in every way."

Since the 1970s Saxon have shown their ability to take rock'n'roll and give it an electrifying edge which has since cemented their status as pioneers of British Heavy Metal.

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.
