With just 6 months to go Bloodstock has added more to the excellent line-up:-
First up is Swedish metal crew AMARANTHE (www.facebook.com/AmarantheBan d) to the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Sunday. Featuring three vocalists, the band are a unique mix of death and power metal. Their popular video for single ‘Maximize’, at https://youtu.be/nfk7YZJtmeo
Landing a Sophie Lancaster stage slot on Friday are Mancunian bruisers, INGESTED (www.facebook.com/ingesteduk). The Century Media-signed band have built a reputation for savage death metal, taking their influences from classic gore and splatter movies.
Joining them on the Friday line-up are MORTISHEAD (www.facebook.com/mortishead) – who bring their hybrid of industrial, thrash, groove & sludge metal to the Sophie stage. As former victors of Bristol’s Metal 2 The Masses, we’re thrilled to see the band progress since their debut on the Hobgoblin New Blood stage in 2015.
Joining the ranks on Saturday’s Sophie bill are the excellent Irish trio, DEAD LABEL (www.facebook.com/DeadLabel). The three piece are rapidly growing a reputation.
Then from Perth, Australia, prog metallers VOYAGER (www.facebook.com/voyageraustr alia) join the fray on Saturday. The long-running group dropped their sixth album, ‘Ghost Mile’ last May.
After having to pull out last year, Nuclear Blast’s brutal German duo MANTAR (www.facebook.com/MantarBand/) are able to joining Sunday’s line-up in 2018. Don’t miss them if you love a bit of black metal combined with doom and punk.
If thrash is more your thing, be sure to catch Brighton beasts, KING LEVIATHAN (www.facebook.com/KingLeviatha nMetal).
BLOODSTOCK have also added heavy supergroup, ACT OF DEFIANCE. Formed in 2014, by ex-Megadeth men Chris Broderick & Shawn Drover, plus Henry Derek (ex-Scar The Martyr) & Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall), check them out at http://metalblade.com/actofdef iance/.
