Bloodstock – Sophie bands and club nights announced

Bloodstock 2016 logo133 days to go. Tick… tick… tick…

Joining the Sophie stage on Sunday are the new, but old school death metal outfit Memoriam.

London’s symphonic metal six-piece, Pythia are looking forward to rocking your face off on Sunday. Perhaps you caught them in London in Feb, playing with Bloodstock alumni, Ensiferum?

This Is Turin will be showcasing their brand of British tech metal on Saturday at Bloodstock this Summer! The band have been busy working on their forthcoming release Thrones.

Also partaking in Saturday’s Sophie Lancaster stage shenanigans are One Machine, the thrashtastic brainchild of Steve Smyth (Nevermore, Testament, Forbidden). Soon to hit the road with Overkill.

Sunday’s final addition are Londoners, Derange.

The first batch of 2016’s Bloodstock club nights are also ready to go! That’s thirty-three pre-festival parties already planned!! More will be added for June, July and early August, so don’t despair if your nearest rock club isn’t listed yet. In the meantime, get along to one/some/all of these, check out the headbangin’ tracks being kranked out from Bloodstock bands old and new, and be in with the chance of winning weekend tickets and Bloodstock-related giveaways.
