Not only having one of the best festival line ups in the UK this year already but Bloodstock seem intent on making it even better with the addition of even more new bands.
Recent rumblings in the Rock ‘n’ Roll community have led to speculation with the return of Guns ‘n’ Roses. Now we can at long last confirm that the rumours have been true.
With an incredible amount of festivals all over Europe each bringing their own tastes to the table, in the past we have had the Monsters of Rock, now we have Download, Reading and Leeds and the underdog that is Bloodstock. Both Reading and Leeds becoming decidedly more mainstream, Bloodstock has very much stuck to their bloodsoaked guns. With this now it’s fourteenth incarnation this year we set foot in Catton Park for the first time. In retrospect now I can certainly assure you that Bloodstock is definitely one of Metal’s premier UK Festivals.
With there now being merely two weeks until the arrival of Britain’s most metal festival, Bloodstock have announced the final names that will be appearing.
Recovering from the initial wave of fantastic bands that performed the day before, we dusted off our proverbial shoulders and got ready to get right back at it. Today we would see the likes of instrumental mastery, a true set of firsts and the arrival of what can only be known as “The Sweetness Owl“…
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!
Fresh from wowing all of us U.K. fans after their performance at this year’s Download Festival, Slipknot have now announced what the second instalment of Knotfest will be including.
We mark the arrival of dragons with the return this year of Keep Of Kalessin. Having just released their brand new album Epistemology, we were able to catch Obsidian C. with the band on their exclusive London date at Incineration Fest.
Much in the vein of Sabaton, Epica have announced they will be hosting their own festival – and there’s a crop of big names already on the bill!
Hailing from Finland, the UK was lucky enough to receive Woland. After opening up the Electric Ballroom stage for Incineration the band very kindly were able to chat to vocalist W – drummer RTK and bassist 13 about what the future might hold now that they are including more members, when we are going to see new material and why you should definitely be listening to them!
