The undisputed (for some) fathers of Death Metal, Chuck Schuldiner, the man responsible for creating the movement saw his third incarnation of Death come together for Spiritual Healing. The beginning of Death’s evolution from the macabre to the more philosophical, Spiritual Healing is essential in the development of the band’s later career and not to mention one of the most important Death Metal records too!
And they’re not all “For Whom The Bell Tolls”.
Today, in the best news ever.
For those among you who might not yet know, Wes Craven has sadly passed on it was announced this morning. Dying at the age of 76 we can all take comfort in the fact that the man well and truly lived his life, though after death there is still life. In the shape of his absolutely archetypal films his memory will forever live on. Making some of the most Metal movies and being one of the heroes of horror we thought that we would make a quick list of five Metal songs to do with the classic concept, dreams.
Beginning the second day of Bloodstock we see our almost mascot like semi inebriated Jesus wishing Metallers well as they enter into the arena. Though Predator and Alien are yet to be seen and perhaps indulged themselves a little too much the evening previous…
The great pilgrimage will begin soon, for those who deem Download not heavy enough or perhaps for those who missed the boat on yet another sold out Wacken, Bloodstock opens it’s bloodsoaked doors. The Metalist will be attending this year and we thought that we would give you guys the once over on who to watch, where, when and why! It’s arguably one of the strongest line up’s of a Metal festival in the UK in the last couple of years I would contest. So come for the headliners and stay for some of the absolute gems that will be gracing the stages over the course of the weekend…
Though the line up on the main stage might be finalised there is plenty more room for up coming acts to perform at this years Bloodstock!
