Bloodstock reveal eight more bands
With Bloodstock just six months away we have a new batch of announcements to add to the line-up across the main and Sophie Lancaster stages.
First up, Swedish metal crew Amaranthe will be playing the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Sunday. Featuring three vocalists, the band are a unique mix of death and power metal. Landing a Sophie Lancaster stage slot on Friday are Mancunian bruisers, Ingested. The Century Media-signed band have built a reputation for savage death metal, taking their influences from classic gore and splatter movies. Joining them on the Friday line-up are Mortishead who bring their hybrid of industrial, thrash, groove & sludge metal to the Sophie stage. As former victors of Bristol’s Metal 2 The Masses, we’re thrilled to see the band progress since their debut on the Hobgoblin New Blood stage in 2015.
Joining the ranks on Saturday’s Sophie bill, we welcome back Irish trio, Dead Label. All the way from Perth, Australia, prog metallers Voyager join the fray on Saturday. The long-running group dropped their sixth album, Ghost Mile last May. After having to pull out last year, we’re pleased Nuclear Blast’s brutal German duo Mantar are able to join Sunday’s Sophie bill in 2018. Don’t miss them if you love a bit of black metal combined with doom and punk. If thrash is more your thing, be sure to catch Brighton beasts, King Leviathan. Bloodstock are also bringing over heavy supergroup, Act of Defiance. Formed in 2014, by ex-Megadeth men Chris Broderick & Shawn Drover, plus Henry Derek (ex-Scar The Martyr) & Matt Bachand (Shadows Fall).
