  ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN AND VUUR FIRE OUT FIRST TRACK FROM FORTHCOMING DEBUT, 'DAYS GO BY - LONDON'
5th June 2017

Legendary Dutch performer Anneke Van Giersbergen and her new band project Vuur (a rough English translation might be fiery passion) have released a video of the track 'Days Go By - London' from their forthcoming debut album.

Talking about the song Anneke says:

"The song 'Days Go By – London' is about The Great Fire in 1666. The lyrics are written from the perspective of the element of fire, threatening Londoners to wipe them out, but the song is also about hope. Even in the darkest of times, the sun will rise."



Following on from 2015s project with Arjen Lucassen, 'The Gentle Storm', the former singer from The Gathering has promised a new heavy and progressive direction with Vuur which features some of the musicians from the live Gentle Storm tours.

The album is due for release in the autumn but the band can be seen live on these European dates through the summer:

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.
