Bloodstock announces four more bands to kick start 2019!

Bloodstock Festival welcomes in 2019 by announcing four new bands for August’s best metal weekender.  If you’ve dropped all your money on Christmas and are counting the pennies, the popular ticket payment plan is also now open, breaking that weekend ticket cost into five much more manageable chunks.  First things first though, four more join the fray....

Powerwolf land the coveted main stage special guest slot on Friday.  The band tell us

"We're looking forward to returning to the mighty Bloodstock Festival after almost ten years to celebrate the metal mass with our friends in the UK - this is going to be a truly wild one!!"

The German power metallers released their seventh studio album, The Sacrament of Sin in July of last year, from which spawned the vampire-themed video for ‘Killers With The Cross’.

Soulfly also step into a Ronnie James Dio main stage spot on Friday.  Frontman Max Cavalera is looking forward to playing at Catton Park, telling us

“Bloodstock 2019, get ready!  It will be a Cavalera invasion!  Soulfly will be playing a lot of songs off our new album, ‘Ritual’.  My son, Richie, is coming with Incite too and together we will make a day to remember!  Fuck yeah! Let the Ritual begin!”

 Soulfly released their eleventh studio album, ‘Ritual’ via Nuclear Blast earlier this year.

As Max Cavalera pre-empted, Phoenix metal squad, Incite come to Catton Park for the first time, picking up Friday’s hotly-contested main stage opening spot  With their fifth studio album, Built To Destroy landing in stores on 25th Jan via MinusHEAD Records, there’s plenty of catalogue to check out if you’ve not listened to the band before.

Finnish progdoomsters, Swallow The Sun grab themselves an early main stage spot on Saturday also.

Stay tuned for more bands to be announced soon.
