Scorpions, Accept and more on tonight's Metal Hammer Radio Show

We were surprised and very impressed to see that next year's Wacken festival sold out in under 12 hours. That's 75,000 metalheads. In honour of this, we're dedicating tonight to the might of German metal.

Luke Morton joined Metal Hammer as Online Editor in 2014, having previously worked as News Editor at popular (but now sadly defunct) alternative lifestyle magazine, Front. As well as helming the Metal Hammer website for the four years that followed, Luke also helped relaunch the Metal Hammer podcast in early 2018, producing, scripting and presenting the relaunched show during its early days. He also wrote regular features for the magazine, including a 2018 cover feature for his very favourite band in the world, Slipknot, discussing their turbulent 2008 album, All Hope Is Gone.
