With the time drawing ever closer till the faithful hordes descend upon Catton Park, the team at Bloodstock once again have yet more bands to announce!
Joining Saturday’s Ronnie James Dio main stage bill are Denver-based thrash animals Havok and landing the opening slot on the Saturday are San Francisco tech-death outfit Fallujah. Fleshing out the Sophie bill over the weekend will be Norwich thrashers Shrapnel, Leicester metal five-piece Internal Conflict, Yorkshire’s stoner blues squad, Ironrat and London extremists, Corpsing who feature members of Akercocke and Aghast. Bringing their critically acclaimed noises on Saturday are heavy prog beasts OHHMS and rounding out Sunday’s line up are British/Chilean thrash/death outfit, Criminal and purveyors of mammoth metal grooves, Gravil.
Phase two of our ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ finalists are also locked down. These lucky winners of regional heats land a slot on the Hobgoblin New Blood stage… On Friday, fans of Lamb of God, Fear Factory, & Whitechapel should be sure to catch Carlisle champions, Seek Solace In Ruin. If Sylosis, Trivium, & Children of Bodom are more your thing, look out for Saltash heroes Mantra. Also celebrating on Friday, are Leicester victors Bloodoathand Wolverhampton top dogs Ashen Crown, who are one for fans of Bolt Thrower & At The Gates. Saturday brings Southern metal riffers Titan Breed, who clinched first place in Glasgow, Gravesend winners Infected Dead with their polished blend of modern death metal and visceral brutality, and three-piece progsters Solar Suns who won the Inverness heat with their Rush/Budgie influences! Joining them will be Cardiff conquerors Malum Sky, with their mix of progressive styles – think Periphery & Karnivool, but with a twist. The kings of the Norwegian M2TM final are Vorbid, and Bloodstock is delighted to welcome their melodic/hard prog sounds to Sunday’s bill, sure to please everyone who digs a bit of Megadeth, Testament, & Annihilator, through to King Crimson, Rush, & Camel!
