#RoadToBOA2018 – Ashborn

As ever, we’re going to try and cover every single Jäger, New Blood and SOPHIE stage band before Bloodstock kicks off on August 9th. Your chance to check them out and start planning which bands to get there early for!

Trust us when we tell you that this is bound to result in some frustrating clashes because, as ever, there are some great bands on these three stages.

Our thanks to all the bands for taking the time out to answer our questions!

Ashborn – Hobgoblin New Blood Stage, Saturday

Simple things first – where are you guys from?

We are Polish band but based in Northampton and Birmingham.

How long have you been playing together as a band?

In this lineup – December 2017.

Where does the name of the band come from?

The band is born from the ashes of the different bands and also it sounds good.

Describe your music. What makes you unique?

Our music – hmmm – we call it metal! I would say mix of groove/death and hardcore but this is just my opinion.  

What’s your live show like? Why are people going to watch you instead of another band?

Full of energy and head-bang. No messing around.

Have you been to Bloodstock before? What did you think?

No. This will be our first time.

Did you enter M2TM thinking you could win it? 

Haha, good question! Of course, I think every band taking part thinks they can win.

Which region did you win, or did you come through other channels?

It was Milton Keynes.

What sort of setlist can we expect

It’s going to be kind of a “best of”.

Which other bands do you most hope you’re not squished up next to so you can see them play?

Too many great bands at BOA this year to name them all!

What are you working on at the moment? 

At the moment we are concentrating on Bloodstock but next year we will record our full-length album and this is what we will work on just after BOA. We will play some gigs as well.

Jager, Hobgoblin Ale, Red Bull, Kingstone Press Cider, Kaltenberg Beer or Bulleit Bourbon? And, yes, we’ll be counting all the votes!
