While Tickets There selfishly confined themselves to tasks associated with ‘WTPTB’ (‘work that pays the bills’ – I’m not explaining that again. it defeats the point) – the mighty KILLFACE went and won the Wacken Metal Battle in Dublin last week!

Tickets There would like to congratulate the lads and wish them the very best when they play one the most revered metal festivals in the world later this year. Good luck in the world final!

Congratulations WARPATH – 2013 Irish M2TM Winners!

970756_690323680993089_2100694245_nThe WARPARTY is heading to England as Warpath have won this year’s Bloodstock Metal To The Masses final.

On Saturday night, Warpath competed against some of the finest bands in Ireland to take home the prize. They took on the might of Psykosis (you know we lovvve them), Animator (who were amazing and we love them too), AeSect (going to stop the bracket thing now – it’s annoying….but AeSect are savage as well), We Know Jack and Spector and still managed to conquer all. Not an easy thing to do, especially considering all the other bands TT managed to catch (before succumbing to sickness) put on incredible shows.

Tickets There would like to wish Dar and the lads a big congratulations and wish them the best of luck at Bloodstock next month when they play alongside the likes of SLAYER, KING DIAMOND, ANTHRAX, EXODUS, GOJIRA, MUNICIPAL WASTE, DARK FUNERAL, ACCEPT and many, many more. Warpath will also now have performance slots at Wacken Open Air 2014 along with two other festivals. Not a bad prize at all and we know they’ll kick ass.

Well done lads and good luck!

WARPATH Win Irish Final for Wacken Metal Battle 2012

This is massively overdue but Tickets There would like to extend our congratulations to Dublin death metallers, Warpath, for securing the winning spot in the Irish leag of the 2012 Wacken Metal Battle. Competing against Exzeltic, Beltbuckle Overdrive (who both came joint second), Psykosis, Zealot Cult and Celtachor, Warpath stormed their way to victory and will crusade across the content to the world final @ W:O:A in August.

Winners aside, the competition really showcased the incredible talent that exists in this country’s metal scene. With Primordial and Darkest Era starting to hammer down the road to greatness, it seems there are many more bands waiting in the ranks for their chance to unleash hell, raise carnage and put some metal up your ass.

Congratulations to all who entered and best of luck to Warpath at Wacken this summer!
