New Wave Of British Heavy Metallers Vardis will have their classics albums, '100 MPH', 'The World's Insane' and 'Quo Vardis' remastered and re-released on CD and vinyl via Dissonance Productions and Back On Black Records.

Steve Zodiac told us:

"It's a thrill to finally hear these records as I remember them sounding in the studio. Dissonance Productions and Back On Black Records have done a fantastic job and produced the definitive editions of these albums."

The CD digipaks, featuring exclusive bonus tracks, are to be released on September 22nd with vinyl copies due for release on October 20th 2017.

The Vardis comeback album, 'Red Eye', was released in 2016 via SPV/Steamhammer.

Vardis was forged out of glam, punk, Heavy Metal, blues and rock'n'roll in the crucible of 1970s northern England and the band are a product of rock music across three generations: inspired by the great rockers and electric bluesmen of the 50s and 60s, learning their trade rubbing shoulders with the young guns of hard rock and punk in the 70s and achieving prominence in the 80s as part of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal.

The hard, ferocious attack of their sound directly influenced the development of thrash and Speed Metal across North America and Europe, cited by Metal giants such as Metallica and Megadeth.

Never losing sight of the melodic, boogie sensibilities of their earliest influences, Vardis' brand of hard rock retains a unique heavy groove and has endured as something truly original.

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.
