*Festival announcement klaxon*
Bloodstock festival has geared up for Halloween with a ghoulish announcement of more bands!
The four spooktacular bands added are; WATAIN, Orden Ogan, Combichrist and Memoriam!
Speaking of their anticipation for their Sophie Lancaster Stage Sunday headline slot, WATAIN frontman Erik Danielsson says; “Our last performance at BLOODSTOCK in 2012 was also the final date on the ‘Lawless Darkness’ tour. The sun was setting while we played and the crowd was getting louder and wilder the darker it became. A very charged atmosphere. Eager now to return and see what the eventful years that have passed and the force accumulated since then has done to both us and the BLOODSTOCK crowd. Furthermore, England is of course sacred ground when it comes to Metal in general, so when performing there, the stakes are always high. May all those that doubt be impaled upon them.”
German power metallers Orden Ogan will be playing the Ronnie James Dio main stage on the Saturday while Combichrist are set to play the same stage on the Friday. Brit death-metallers Memoriam have also bagged a Friday main stage slot!
They join headliners Judas Priest, Gojira and Nightwish as well as Emperor, Devildriver and b
