  SLIPKNOT'S 'DAY OF THE GUSANO' TO HIT CINEMAS FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY
25th July 2017



slipknot

Slipknot's documentary film, 'Day Of The Gusano', lands as a 'one night only' event in over 1,000 cinemas globally on 6th September, including over a hundred in the UK.

Tickets for the one off screening are now available for purchase over at dayofthegusano.com and you can check out a new sneak peek of some documentary footage from the movie right here:





'Day Of The Gusano' is directed by Slipknot's own M Shawn Crahan, aka 'Clown', and documents the Iowa band's first ever visit to Mexico City in December 2015 and features exclusive interviews and behind the scenes footage of Slipknot members talking about their long awaited first ever show there and the importance of their fanbase, fondly known as 'maggots', 'Gusano' being the Spanish translation.

The movie also chronicles the rabid devotion of their Mexican 'gusano' and details personal, emotive stories from some of their fans, all interspersed with footage from Slipknot's incendiary live show at the inaugural Knotfest, Mexico.

The film features colossal surround sound, so you'll not only witness the show, but you'll feel it as if you were actually there. Here's the full trailer:



Talking about the movie, Clown tells us:

"Slipknot still has dreams for itself. Finally playing Mexico was one of them.

"It's been a surreal life of rock and roll for Slipknot and the fact that the dreams still go on for us is simply incredible. Thank you."

Guitarist Jim Root continues:

"We had such a great time at Knotfest Mexico... not only with all the friends and bands that were there, but with the fans and the crowd we had to document it with. Now we get to share it with the world."

Kknotfest is Slipknot's own self-curated, destination festival brand, currently held in three international locations; the US, Japan and Mexico.

Designed as an immersive, unforgettable, "dark carnival experience", the event invites you into Slipknot's apocalyptic underworld where stunning visuals, firebreathers and nightmarish creatures on stilts set the stage for an intoxicating and memorable weekend of live music.

Knotfest's plans for 2017 are detailed right 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.
