Quotes below from the press release, but in short – three quality acts just added to the Bloodstock line-up for next summer: Nuclear Assault, Death DTA and Dark Angel!
First up are Death DTA. Formed to keep the musical legacy of legendary Death frontman, Chuck Schuldiner alive, the band’s touring line up changes often, but the Death DTA stage family for 2015 features Steve Di Giorgio (Death, Testament, Sadus), Gene Hoglan (Death, Dark Angel, Testament), Bobby Koelble (Death) and Max Phelps (Cynic).
East Coast thrash legends, Nuclear Assault also join the bill and celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2015. Bassist Dan Lilker informs us:
In 2015, it will be 30 years since Nuclear Assault solidified our lineup and started making a name for ourselves in the metal/crossover scene. To commemorate this, the band will write and record another album and play some shows for a ‘Final Assault.’ The live front will be of a limited nature due to the reality of people in the band having careers that they can’t just walk away from for the time needed to go tour the world like we did in the ’80s. Nevertheless, we will try to do whatever we can, especially in the summer to get out there and thrash for everyone again. Progress on writing will not go quickly due to a couple of facts; we are geographically challenged, so can’t just jam once a week like we used to, and we want to make sure that this album is really killer so we can go out with a big bang.
Seminal California thrashers, Dark Angel are also set for a rare appearance. After reforming last year after an extended hiatus, the band have been playing very selected shows in the US and Europe, and we’re excited to welcome them to Catton Park in 2015.
