  UNLEASH THE ARCHERS RELEASE 'THE MATRIARCH' - WATCH IT HERE
8th April 2017



unleash the archers

Unleash The Archers have released their latest video from forthcoming new album, 'The Apex'. The song is 'The Matriarch' and the album, their fourth, marks the tenth anniversary of the Canadian Heavy Metal heroes' formation.

'The Apex' is out on June 2nd via Napalm Records and this is 'The Matriarch'.



Frontlady Brittney Slayes states:

"This track is chapter three in the story, and in it we are introduced to our antagonist, The Matriarch, in all her malevolent glory.

"We call this one our "quick banger" because it's fast, catchy, and fun and hopefully it won't take long to learn the words.

"It is sung from an omniscient point of view, drawing the listener in with tales of The Matriarch's depravity. The best part is the bridge, because the song is so dark, and then it launches into this flowing wraithlike guitar melody that is so memorable. I sing along to it every time and I think the fans will too.

"Absolutely can not wait to play this one live."

We premiered the previous release from 'The Apex' in April and the song has received over a third-of-a-million views on YouTube since. You can catch up on it here.

Ken Sarafin created the picturesque album artwork for 'Apex' and told us:

"This album takes nerves of steel; from its opener, 'Awakening', to the title track that closes the album, the listener will partake in a furious adventure, weaving through elements of the strongest Metal genres of our time.

"You'll be guided by the shimmering heat of sweeping lead guitars, face-melting solos, deafening growls, pummeling bass lines and of course the thrilling hooks of Brittney Slayes' Queen-size voice."

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.
