20 años de metal: Wacken

20 años de metal: Wacken

Wacken y su Festival metálico arrasan con 75.000 personas diarias en su 20 aniversario. Tres días y tres noches de sobredosis heavy en Alemania

Dos redondas décadas ha cumplido en su edición 2009 el prestigioso festival alemán Wacken Open Air (WOA), desde hace años, referente a nivel europeo, y posiblemente mundial, en cuanto a macrocitas metálicas al aire libre. Las altas expectativas por una edición que conmemoraba el 20 aniversario dispararon la venta de entradas de tal manera que, a finales del pasado año, ya se colgó el sold out, con lo que, mas chula que nadie, la organización del WOA se apuntó dos anuncios de «entradas agotadas» el mismo año, porqué también se acabó todo el papel meses antes de la edición 2008, con Iron Maiden como gran reclamo.

De nuevo, cerca de 75.000 camaradas heavies llegados desde todo el mundo (no faltaron ikurriñas y hasta alguna camiseta de la Real) tomaron con buen rollito Wacken, que si bien durante el año es un remanso de paz con vacas pastando plácidamente por sus verdes praderas y apenas 2.000 habitantes, durante el primer fin de semana de agosto se tiñe de negro convirtiéndose en capital mundial del metal. La fe del personal ante este festi es tal que la gente compra su abono sin conocer prácticamente que grupos tocarán. De hecho, para la edición 2010, que se celebrará entre el próximo 5 y 7 de agosto, ya se ha vendido en tiempo record (10 horas) la primera remesa de 10.000 abonos en oferta puesta a la venta.

Es la fidelidad heavy llevada al máximo, a sabiendas de que el WOA jamás defrauda porque tiene semejante prestigio que los grupos lo dan todo y hasta echan la casa por la ventana en cuanto a montaje escénico: el WOA es una oportunidad única, una especie de Champions heavy. Dicho esto, sí ha habido este año en parte cierto desencanto por un cartel en general con pocas estrellas, o al menos, con cabezas de cartel no demasiado espectaculares para un 20 aniversario. Quizás por eso no ha habido con ningún grupo la sensación de llenazo agobiante, y hasta de peligro (afortunadamente), que sí hubo la pasada edición con Iron Maiden.

Maratones metálicos

La primera jornada solía ser hace años un día de calentamiento, con un puñado de grupos actuando por la tarde. Ahora ese primer día, el jueves, es el bautizado como Night To Remember y aunque sigue siendo una jornada «a medio gas» por aquello de que arranca a la tarde, suele estar presidida por algún grupo de alto estatus como Whitesnake, Scorpions o Maiden en 2008. Este año los reyes de la añoranza fueron Heaven & Hell, es decir, Black Sabbath con Dio al frente. Show vistoso y repertorio sobrio con el que reivindicar sabiamente una muy valiosa época de Sabbath quizá no tan valorada al no estar encabezada por Ozzy Osbourne. Pese a la lluvia y el barro, H&H dio muestra de su buen estado de forma y el himno que les da nombre fue coreado largamente en las amplias campas de Wacken. Antes, Running Wild, que jugaban en casa, dieron cancha a su incansable listado de estribillos y melodías típicamente alemanas bajo un diluvio en el que se anunció como su último concierto. Veremos.

Al día siguiente arrancaron ya los cuatro escenarios (tres grandes en la campa principal y uno menor en el exterior donde incomprensiblemente metieron a Turisas el último día) y los horarios habituales, de mediodía hasta las tres de la madrugada, con conciertos casi sin pausa. Entre los grupos mañaneros, leyendas tan dispares como Napaln Death (grind core), UFO (hard) y sobre todo Gamma Ray (power metal) movilizaron a ingentes cantidades de público que no se sintieron defraudadas, cada una en su estilo. A Nevermore se les vio menos enchufados, sobre todo si les comparamos con los australianos Airbourne, que, como el año pasado, volvieron a arrasar plenos de energía a lo AC/DC en uno de los mejores conciertos del festi. Unos muy recuperados Hammerfall dieron más de lo que muchos esperaban, lo mismo que los jovenzuelos y agresivos Bullet For My Valentine, con la chavalería esperando impaciente a verles. A ellos y a In Flames, lejos de su estilo trallero de hace una década. En horario estelar atronaron Motorhead, en su habitual buena línea, y Doro, que se trajo un bonito montaje escénico y un repertorio que incluyó Breaking the Law, de Judas Priest. A gran altura y con entrega máxima, como siempre tratándose de Doro. Otra guapa como Simone Simons centró antes todas las miradas en el show de unos Epica correctos. Cerraron jornada los cada día más grandes Amon Amarth, con no demasiado volumen y show estelar, barco vikingo y guerreros incluidos.
Para el sábado, ya con el buen tiempo que reinó desde primera hora de la tarde del día anterior, destacaban por la mañana los siempre poderosos Rage, que se trajeron un porrón de invitados (entre ellos el cantante de Blind Guardian con una imagen ciertamente dejada), quizá demasiados. Testament repartieron su thrash metal como una apisonadora, sonando atronadores y brillantes. Increíble también la aceptación de In Extremo, combo germano que mezcla folk, instrumentos medievales y algo de tralla metálica, que si bien son perfectos desconocidos aquí (apenas un centenar de asistentes en su concierto de hace unos meses en la Rock Star de Barakaldo), en su país son verdaderamente grandes. La montaron parda. Aunque no tanto como Machine Head, quizá en su mejor momento pese a que siempre han sido un grupo de directo. Pusieron aquello patas arriba y las imágenes que mostraban las pantallas con el público enloquecido eran por si solas puro espectáculo. Bestiales. A Saxon les colocaron prácticamente como cabezas de cartel y aunque siempre gustan y hasta sacaron su águila luminosa, esta vez su repertorio no pareció el mejor.

El show GWAR, que deberían de contratar los de nuestra Semana de Terror, entretuvo a base de guarrería gore y con una imagen monstruosa a la que los mucho más populares Lordi deben mucho. Mientras, Korpiklaani convocaba a una multitud con su folk metal a ratos casi verbenero. Pura fiesta para cerrar un WOA como siempre estimulante, potente y. agotador.

Matt Tuck Interviewed By ALTITUDE TV

Matt Tuck Interviewed By ALTITUDE TV

Full Metal Jackie of Altitude TV conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Matt Tuck of Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE at this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Watch the four-minute chat below.

Regarding how the new BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE song — which the band has been played at some of its recent shows — compares to the group's previous material, Tuck recently told the German edition of Metal Hammer magazine, "It's kind of completely new. I don't think it's like anything on 'Poison' [2005] or 'Scream Aim Fire' [2008], is it?" Moose concurred, "It's kind of more classic, if you ask me. It's not speedy, it's not thrashy." Tuck added, "It's not thrashy or really intense metal or anything. It's just like a mid-tempo kind of really nice, hard rock song. I don't even class it as metal, really. It's got metal influences and a really cool metal riff, but the song, as a vibe, is more hard rock."

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE recently entered a Malibu, California studio with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, LACUNA COIL) to begin recording the band's third CD for an early 2010 release. According to Tuck, the as-yet-untitled effort will mark a slight departure from the more aggressive sounds of "Scream Aim Fire", which has sold 321,000 copies in the United States since its January 2008 release. "On the last [album], we tried to be a bit more thrashy, and that was cool, but we just wanna go back to more kind of classic sound now," he said. "We want people to [think] it's a good blend of what we've done in the past.

He continued, "It's a lot more mature-sounding. The record, as a whole, is a lot more mature-sounding, it's a lot more classic. It'll stand the test of time [more] than both the previous things we've done.

"I haven't done the vocal session yet, but it's something I'm really gonna put everything I have into. The last record was what it was 'cause I had loads of problems with my throat — I had an operation and all that shit. So that's why it kind of sounds a bit weird compared to the first one — 'cause I wasn't doing good. But this time, the voice is back, it's firing, it sounds like me again, and I'm really gonna make it a great vocal rock/metal album."

WINNERS Interviewed At KERRANG! [VIDEOS]

WINNERS Interviewed At KERRANG! AWARDS


In the sixth and final installment of Kerrang! magazine's Kerrang! Awards 2009 podcasts, Simon Young is joined by Kerrang! award winners SLIPKNOT, LIMP BIZKIT, MACHINE HEAD and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE. Watch the 11-minute clip below.

According to ContactMusic.com, SLIPKNOT walked away with "Best Live Act" and "Best International Band" at the event, which frontman Corey Taylor co-hosted. He branded the double award win "really gratifying" and added, "I can't think of many bands that have worked harder, and it really feels good that people are starting to turn around and really see what we're about and appreciating it for what it is."

METALLICA won "Best Album" for "Death Magnetic", while THE PRODIGY walked away with the "Best Single" honor for "Omen".

Kerrang! editor Paul Brannigan stated: "SLIPKNOT and METALLICA are the two monsters of rock who have been picked out by the Kerrang! readers this time around. They've both had a really good year, No. 1 albums in the States and No. 1 and No. 2 albums over here, sold-out arena tours, headlining major rock festivals in this country... it's not really a surprise that they're up for every single category they're eligible for."

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE scooped "Best British Band" for the second year in a row and San Francisco, California band MACHINE HEAD were handed the night's "Inspiration Award" for their contribution to heavy metal.

Reunited grunge rockers ALICE IN CHAINS and reformed LIMP BIZKIT were presented with the night's "Icon Award" and "Hall of Fame" prize, respectively.

Saturday saw Mayhem in Dallas

If you’re a fan of metal then you were probably at Mayhem Fest yesterday. The heat certainly didn’t stop huge crowds from flooding Superpages.com Center. And with bands like BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE, SLAYER and MARILYN MANSON you can see why.

I missed most of the second and third stage bands, unfortunately. Planning on getting there for ALL THAT REMAIN’S set – which my set list said started at 4:35 – ended up being a no go. I arrived in what would have been plenty of time but apparently those stages were running a good ten minutes early. From what I could hear, though, they did an okay job but the sound seemed a bit off. BEHEMOTH, however, had the crowd chanting their name before they hit the stage and put on a hell of a set. I had to feel a little sorry for them in those costumes and face paint though. August in Texas is not very forgiving.

I hid from the heat in the press tent for a bit – at least until the power went out. Thankfully it was only in some backstage areas (and a bit of the food court) and the main stage was just fine because it was time to shoot the big acts and they did not disappoint. BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE was up first and my hearing was pretty much gone from then on. KILLSWITCH ENGAGE decided to add to the heat of the day with some pyro and while it might have made us poor photogs down in the pit melt it provided some great pictures. These guys were definitely on top of their game and seemed to be having a great time, as was the audience.

Things were amped up several notices when gods of metal, SLAYER, took the stage. Believe it or not this was my first time to see SLAYER play and I was very impressed. Fantastic stage presence and they are still showing the younger guys how it’s done. I had heard that at some other stops on this tour large portions of the crowd left before MANSON took the stage. That was not the case in Dallas. Seats and lawn were packed and the sound deafening as the lights began to flash behind the huge black curtain covering the stage. MANSON came out to a roar from the crowd and I was surprised. Many of the pictures I’ve seen of him lately had him looking bloated and not well but last night he looked good. He prowled the stage, spitting drinks over the audience and crouching down at the end of the catwalk to touch hands with those on the front row – much to their delight. I have to admit I found it funny when he would blindly hold out a hand and some stage lackey came running with a drink or when another came and put a pack of ice on the back of his neck. I guess the heat in Dallas was to much for him even after ten.

I’d love to give you a list of songs from these bands but I’ll admit – this generally isn’t my type of music so I don’t know them. Don’t get me wrong, I like metal, but I prefer the type where the singers – you know – sing. Not scream. A bit of screaming here and there can add to it but when it’s the vast majority of the song I just lose interest. That being said I still thoroughly enjoyed the acts on the main stage, even MANSON who I’ve never really been much of a fan of. They survived the Texas heat and put on a great show.

Many more pictures will be up at RenegadePhotos later today so keep checking back

"We haven't got everything right and we didn't promise we would in year one," he said.

Lyrics To Bullet's New song!

Lyrics To Bullet's New song!

"I take you down,
tear you apart
cuz i fucking hate you
I'll make you pay
for what you've done
now you will suffer.
Now it's so hard
'cuz you took off
stop this burning in me
it makes me sick
the way you crawl
you're nothing to me

judgement burys me
judgement burys me
So who do you think you are
who do you think you aaaare
trying to kill someone you
thought never had a heart
so who do you think you are
who do you think you are
trying to kill someone you
thought never had a heart

so did you think
I was too proud
well I'll fucking show you
To you my love
I'll bid farewell
now you are leaving
get outta my head
get outta my heart
stop to listen to me
it makes me sick
the way you crawl
you mean nothing to me

Judgement burys me
you mean nothing to me

so who do you think you are
who do you think you are
trying to kill someone you
thought never had heart(X2)
they dont have a heart

solo

so who do you think you are
who do you think you are
trying to kill someone you
thought never had a heart(X2)
they dont have a heart."

With Download seemingly having the hard rock festival market tied up, while Reading and Leeds, Glastonbury, V and many, many more also provide plenty of opportunities for rockers keen to spend a weekend in a mud-filled field, launching a new two-day event during a recession may, on the face of it, appear to be a strange move. Well, until you see the line-up that former Download main man Stuart Galbraith put together for this year's inaugural Sonisphere that is. Metallica, Linkin Park, Heaven and Hell and many, many more coupled with the historic surroundings of Knebworth can only bring success, can't it?

Well, festival openers Soil do little to shed any light either way, as they kick things off with a set of passable nu-metal, which doesn't really get going until their 2001 hit Halo sparks the Sonisphere crowd into life, by which point their 30-minute is fast drawing to a close. Meanwhile, watching main stage openers Alien Ant Farm is like stepping back in time to 2001, with very little seemingly changing for the band since then. Gurning bass player? Check. On stage banter which steps a little too close to arrogance for comfort? Check. Set of two great tunes and a whole lot of filler? Unfortunately, check. Movies, the lead single from 2001's ANThology, is the only highpoint in a fairly drab set, before their cover of Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal gets Sonisphere on its feet and the turgid filler that went before it is forgiven and most certainly forgotten.

Back over to the Saturn Stage and Skindred pull in a decent crowd which laps up every second of the band's metal and reggae hybrid. Things do not go quite so well for Taking Back Sunday, as their emo sound swirls around in the Knebworth wind, with their pop sensibilities failing to fully win over the Apollo Stage crowd. However, Bjorn Again do manage to win over the crowd with a set as poppy as pop can get. The ABBA tribute act are rapturously received as they run through Waterloo, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme and Super Trooper, before slipping in a cover of Enter Sandman to appease those who will undoubtedly complain that this sort of thing 'doesn't belong at a metal festival'. A mass Dancing Queen sing-along rounds off the set, as what has to be seen as a surprising booking proves to be inspired.

Anthrax quickly snap Sonisphere out of its brief flirtation with pop, as they deliver a bone-crushing set led by John Bush. Bush, who held vocal duties with the band between 1992 and 2004, stepped in to replace Dan Nelson, who recently parted company with the thrash masters. In what is, at the moment at least, expected to be a one off performance, Bush proves that he remains a fantastic choice to front Anthrax, as the band whips through a breathless set, with Caught in a Mosh and Bring the Noise setting a marker for the poor souls that have to follow them on the Apollo Stage. Coheed and Cambria should have been that band, but a missed ferry leaves them elsewhere, although they do make it in time to put on a typically epic show later in the day in the Bohemia tent.

As the heaven's open Aussie upstarts Airbourne rock out with a set of AC/DC-tinged footstompers with Hellfire and Girls in Black going down particularly well with the drenched crowd, especially when during the latter frontman Joel O'Keeffe goes literally airbourne as he climbs a huge rig to the side of the stage, from which point he is able to pull of a guitar solo, admire the historic surroundings and do his bit for English-Aussie relations as the nations do battle in the Ashes.

It is perhaps fitting that the worst weather of the day is saved for while Heaven and Hell are on stage, as if Tony Iommi's trademark guitar sound is enough to summon a downpour. Diminutive frontman Ronnie James Dio soars through a set of his Black Sabbath output and while it's musically spot on, it feels slightly flat and leaves you wondering whether an Ozzy-led Sabbath would have fared any better with a rather subdued audience.

After a crowd-pleasing Bullet For My Valentine close the Saturn Stage for the night with a collection of metal tunes that has the a sea of bodies singing along to every word of the Welsh quintet's barnstorming set, Linkin Park round things off for the Apollo Stage, putting in a solid, if unspectacular, performance. Given Up and Somewhere I Belong are particular highlights early on, before Crawling and In the End drag things out of something of a mid-set lull. Bizarrely, vocalist Chester Bennington brings his side project, Dead by Sunrise, out for the encore, in a move which seems to win scant approval from festival-goers and is seen by many as an abuse of power rather than the special event that it will no doubt be pedalled as. Thankfully, Linkin Park do re-emerge for the second encore, finishing off with a superb One Step Closer.

After a day packed with sun, rain, ridiculously priced burgers and a fair old dollop of metal, those with the energy to hotfoot over to the Bohemia tent are in for a treat. Here Thunder call time on their 20-year career with a storming set filled with classics. Dirty Love, The Devil Made Me Do It and Love Walked In ensure that the classic rockers sign off in style. With the time flying past midnight before the Wildhearts hit the stage it can perhaps be expected that Ginger and co will be met by a weary crowd, however, as soon as the likes of Vanilla Radio, Sick of Drugs and I Wanna Go Where the People Go kick in the place is back on its feet, and despite all kinds of sound problems the boys provide the perfect way for Sonisphere's first day to end.

DAY TWO

As the sun beats down on Knebworth Buckcherry are given the unenviable task of opening day two of the festival at a time when many festival-goers are still recovering form the night before. What's more, vocalist Josh Todd is clearly under the weather and not at 100 per cent physically, but despite this he still bounds around the stage with more energy than many of those who will follow him today. Lit Up and Crazy Bitch ensure that the day starts with a bang as Buckcherry's sleaze-drenched sound provides the perfect pick-me-up for those feeling a little sensitive after a night of overindulgence.

Killing Joke then remind everyone just why they are name-checked by so many that have come after then, as a wild-eyed Jaz Coleman, who is incidentally caked in more make-up than you'll see on a night out in Essex, leads them through a storming performance with Eighties – which is dedicated Nirvana, who were accused of lifting the song's riff for their own Come as You Are – very much the highlight of a short but sweet set.

Heavy metal veterans Saxon then battle through sound problems – which include someone seemingly failing to turn the drum mics on for opener Battalions of Steel – as they serve up exactly what you'd expect from them, half an hour of old skool, foot to the floor metal. However, you can't help but feel that they would have been better off with a later slot on a smaller stage, especially as they thrashed out a truly memorable performance on Download's third stage back in 2008.

Lamb of God and Mastodon both put in storming performances high on crowd-pleasing metal, however the afternoons' main talking point comes courtesy of the Apollo Stage slot which is filled simply with the term 'Special Guests'. After two days of campsite speculation no one is too surprised when Machine Head appear, despite having pulled out a week or two back due to being placed below Limp Bizkit on the bill. Not that Sonisphere cares about all of that now, they're here and they put in one of the weekend's most memorable performances, and that's surely all that matters. Rob Flynn spits out lyrics to Ten Ton Hammer and Old with frightening anger and velocity, before saving some vitriol for Fred Durst and co after telling a captivated crowd that Machine Head were begged by the festival's organisers to reconsider pulling their appearance.

After that Limp Bizkit were always going to have their work cut out. But, credit where credit's due, Durst is on top form, with the band very much sticking to the tried-and-tested festival formula of filling your set with as many hits as possible. My Generation, Break Stuff, Nookie and Rollin' are all lapped up, which is all the more impressive considering that much of the 45,000 crowd are here for the likes of Metallica, Nine Inch Nails and Machine Head. Durst even takes time out to extend an olive branch to the latter, before Faith and Take a Look Around end a set which may just have won a few of the naysayers around.

Next up over on the Saturn Stage Alice in Chains show everyone how you replace the irreplaceable. William DuVall has the unenviable job of stepping into the late Layne Staley's shoes, but everything seems to click into place. DuVall takes up vocal and guitar duties, however, Jerry Cantrell also takes a central role, meaning that the weight on DuVall's shoulders is lessened greatly. The band also judge their setlist to perfection, acknowledging their past with blistering renditions of Man in the Box and Rooster, while a smattering of new tracks sound just as impressive and bypass any fears that this is a band living on past glories.

With this expected to be the last UK show from Nine Inch Nails to say anticipation levels around Knebworth were high is a massive understatement. Trent Reznor does not disappoint, with opener The Way Out Is Through setting the standard for the rest of the set, which, despite being made up of the band's more downbeat output, provides one of the weekend's highlights. Reznor shows that he is not one for onstage banter, in fact he barely musters a word other than a thank you before the band head off, but what he does do is prove what a fantastic musician he is. Diving between mic stand, guitar, keyboard and tambourine there is almost a sense of surprise when he doesn't leap behind the drum kit for an impromptu solo. While the inclusion March of the Pigs and Closer would undoubtedly have been welcome, NIN instead stick to their guns and close with a chilling version of Hurt which is a hair on the back of the neck moment if ever there was one.

After such an epic and atmospheric performance, Avenged Sevenfold offer something completely different on the Saturn Stage. Pulling in what is surely one of the youngest crowds of the weekend they stick to what they do best, which thankfully for us is just putting on a downright entertaining show. Bat Country has the second stage really rocking, setting things up nicely for Metallica to round things off, who put in a hit-filled, as tight as tight can be set that reaffirms their status as the kings of all things metal as the first UK showing of what could become the next big player on the festival circuit comes to a triumphant end.

Bullet For My Valentine se llevó el Kerrang Award!


Bullet For My Valentine se llevó el Kerrang Award!

Gracias a sus votos Bullet For My Valentine se llevó el premio Best British Act, lo hizimos de nuevo, ya con eto son dos años consecutivos que se llevan el premio. Aquí la nota:

Slipknot have stolen the show at the Kerrang! awards, walking away with two prizes. The masked heavy metallers, whose frontman Corey Taylor hosted the ceremony at London's Brewery venue, took the awards for Best International Band and Best Live Band.

Corey said: "It feels really gratifying."

He continued: "If there was ever a band that had to fight against controversy and misconception it was this band, and we're really starting to kind of get to the point where the respect is getting there - and rightly so."

He paid tribute to the band's fans - known affectionately as the "maggots".

"It feels really good to be where we're at right now," he said. "And if I could, I would call every one of the maggots and personally thank them - but, I don't have a great long distance (telephone) plan though!"

Welsh rockers Bullet For My Valentine won the Best British Act award for the second year in a row, while veteran noise merchants Metallica took the Best Album gong for Death Magnetic.

Kerrang! readers voted for eight of the 13 awards, giving Best Single to The Prodigy for Omen, Best British Newcomer to In Case Of Fire and Best Video to Mastodon for Oblivion. Bullet For My Valentine frontman Matt Tuck accepted the band's second Best British Act award with a video message.

"We'd like to thank Kerrang! for giving us this award twice on the trot which is awesome," he said.

Californian rockers Limp Bizkit were inducted into the Kerrang! hall of fame, while Machine Head won the Inspiration award and north-east punks The Wildhearts took the Spirit Of Independence Award.

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE: News

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE: New Audio Interview With
JASON 'JAY' JAMES Posted Online

The Silver Tongue's CoolKeith conducted an interview with bassist Jason "Jay" James of Welsh metallers BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE on July 24, 2009 at the Atlanta, Georgia stop of this year's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. The chat is now available for streaming and/or download at this location.

BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE recently entered a Malibu, California studio with producer Don Gilmore (LINKIN PARK, LACUNA COIL) to begin recording its third album for an early 2010 release.

Regarding lyrical themes for the new material, guitarist/vocalist Matt Tuck previously told U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine, "There's one song that's about not being able to have what you want. Being in the band, it doesn't happen much. When it comes to girls, you can have the pick of the bunch, but you always want what you can't have, y'know… but it's this one chick, man… so it's a song about obsession."

The upcoming CD will be the follow-up to "Scream Aim Fire", which has sold 318,000 copies in the United States since its January 2008 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
