Bloodstock Festival 2019 announces 7 more bands just in time for Easter

With Easter just around the corner, Bloodstock have just announced some further treats for you in the form of another seven new bands added to the already packed bill at this years festival.

Industrial alt rockers Sulpher grab a Sophie Lancaster stage slot on Friday. The trio, comprising touring members of Marilyn Manson, The Prodigy and The Jesus and Mary Chain recently released their 2nd studio album No One Will Ever Know.

Also landing a Friday Sophie appearance are Newcastle groove metal squad Def Con One. With founder member and ex-Venom sticksman Antton Lant behind the kit they are sure to make a racket!

British metal squad, Damnation Squad also join the Sophie Friday bill. Formed as an homage to the 80's avant garde metal scene, the bands vision was to create doom-laden, dark, atmospheric sounds with unrelenting heaviness.

Hailing from Dewsbury and reforming a few years back, old school death metal crew Blasphemer are added to the Sophie lineup on Friday. Their most recent album Lust Of The Goat dropped in November 2018.

Rounding out the Sophie stage announcements for Friday bands are Irish death metal outfit Zealot Cult. Check out their concrete heavy, classic death metal noise on the Karenian Crypt EP.

Picking up a Sunday spot on the Sophie stage are Notts-based stoner groove power trio, Witchtripper. Bringing "groove,shred and roll", if you're a fan of Clutch, Orange Goblin, Kyuss and Black Sabbath these guys are right up your street.

Also bounding onto the Sophie stage on Sunday are Harbinger. Touted by MEtal Hammer as "leading the next generation of tech metal wizards", the band showcase their wares with new track ' The Awakening'.
