Lucky for some, BLOODSTOCK springs into March with news of seven more bands joining this summer’s best metal weekender and a massive thirteen more coach pick-up locations, making it easier than ever to get you, your mates, and all your camping gear to BLOODSTOCK for a very fine metallic time this August.
Belgian death metal kings ABORTED stride onto the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Sunday. The band tell us, “BLOODSTOCK! It’s been a while! We couldn’t be more thrilled to lay waste to thee in the most offensive of manners this coming summer. Prepare my friends, the blastbeat is coming!” Their current album ‘TerrorVision’ is blazing holes in our speakers over at BOA HQ. See what we mean via the video for ‘Deep Red’, a track taken from that record here:
Cali death metallers, SKELETAL REMAINS join Saturday’s fray on the Sophie Lancaster stage. The band released their third album ‘Devouring Mortality’ last April via Dark Descent/Century Media, and returned to the road for extensive touring, which now includes a run of US dates with Hatebreed and Mexican headline shows this spring. Watch the video for that album’s earthquake-inspired first single ‘Seismic Abyss’, below:
Aussie rockers THE LAZYS crash into a Sunday spot on the Sophie stage. If you love a bit of AC/DC-style classic rock n’ roll, these boys are definitely worth a watch and are sure to bring the party! The band’s current album, ‘Tropical Hazards’ came out last year, so crack a cold one and check out the video for their infectious tune ‘Nothing But Trouble’!
3 HEADED SNAKE join the Sophie stage bill on Saturday. The LA-based classic metal band was put together by current Ministry guitarist Sin Quirin and features the soaring vocals of Johnny Ray. See their video for ‘Wisdom Screams’ below and if you like what you hear, go pick up the five piece’s eponymous 3-track debut EP from iTunes or Bandcamp.
BOSS KELOID land a Sunday slot on the Sophie stage. With current album, ‘Melted On The Inch’ being released last year on Holy Roar Records to vast critical acclaim (Prog Magazine called it “an extraordinary piece of work”), we’re excited to welcome the prog metallers back to Catton Park. Witness their musical mastery via the video for ‘Chronosiam’ here:
German crossover thrash squad DUST BOLT snag themselves a Saturday slot on the Sophie stage. Their brand new album, ‘Trapped In Chaos’ was released last month via Napalm Records. Check out the video for album opener, ‘The Fourth Strike’ and warm up those necks for their thrashtastic set in August!
RED METHOD romp into a Saturday slot on the Sophie stage. The band, comprising former members of Meta-Stasis and The Defiled, are set to release their debut album, ‘For The Sick’ sometime this year. Investigate their sound by watching the video for ‘Split’ over on their YouTube channel.
