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!
Sodomized Cadaver – Sophie Lancaster Stage, Friday
Simple things first – where are you guys from?
We are from the Welsh valleys.
How long have you been playing together as a band?
We formed early 2013.
Where does the name of the band come from?
From fucking corpses.
Describe your music. What makes you unique?
Ebola fuelled old school death metal. Our looks set us apart from every other death metal band. Death metal is a very ugly genre with disgusting themes and even uglier band members but we are 4 very attractive young gentlemen, Well 3 (Ollie is really old).
What’s your live show like? Why are people going to watch you instead of another band?
We don’t take ourselves too seriously, it’s very common to go on stage and try and act all hard and tough but we let our music do the talking while we prance about on stage like fools, come party with us and you will find that out.
Have you been to Bloodstock before? What did you think?
Yeah, we played back in 2016 on the Jager stage, it was great fun.
So how does it feel to be invited to play the one and only Bloodstock?
As I said we’ve played before which was great but this time means that much more because obviously we must have done something right first time round to be invited back to play the mighty Sophie stage. Also, it has to be said that the message behind the name of the stage with Sophie Lancaster makes it that much more special to us as it’s a great cause.
What sort of setlist can we expect?
We got 40 minutes to play with so we will squeeze in as many songs as possible, we will be playing some brand new songs off of our new album Morbid Tales of Mutilation (which is out later on in the year) as well as some fan favourites.
Which main stage band do you most hope you’re not squished up next to so you can see them play?
What are you working on at the moment?
We are working on our first full-length album Morbid Tales Of Mutilation, which will be released sometime later in the year. Label announcement coming soon. Also, we are always working on playing new places.
What’s the wildest thing you’ve seen or done on tour?
Nothing I can say that is PG friendly.
Jager, Hobgoblin Ale, Kraken, Kingstone Press Cider, Kaltenberg Beer or Bulleit Bourbon? And, yes, we’ll be counting all the votes!
Hobgoblin and Jager joint first.
