It’s that time again… It must be a week at least since Bloodstock announced the last bunch of acts to be playing at this year’s event. So here are more!

Joining Friday’s main stage bill are newly re-grouped British death metal overlords, Akercocke. The band are working on new music and Bloodstock will be their very first gig since their reformation. Frontman Jason Mendonca tells us:

Akercocke have returned after 5 years absence from the live circuit. We are reinvigorated by the return of our original guitarist Paul Scanlan and the ranks are completed by Dam front man Nathanael Underwood on bass guitar. Following the great experience the band enjoyed in 2008, we are proud to return to the Bloodstock main stage for a second time. Expect fan favourites from the past and killer new tunes from the present. See you down the front.

Stoner/blues rock five-piece, Desert Storm join Sunday’s Sophie stage bill. Also landing a Sunday Sophie slot are thrash metal animals, Divine Chaos.

Meanwhile, the first acts for the New Blood stage have been chosen! After throwing their hat in the ring via CD applications, the following bands win slots on the New Blood bill; London doomsters Poseidon, Bristol’s darkly melodic Mordrake, Belfast metal beasts Rabid Bitch of the North and Austria’s Rest in Fear all snare themselves stage time at Bloodstock!
