BLOODSTOCK reveal ten more bands, plus more club nights

With 2015’s festival season officially underway, BLOODSTOCK still has plenty to reveal about the summer’s premiere metal weekender. Ten more bands, to start with…

Joining the Sophie Lancaster Stage line-up on Friday are MESSIAH’S KISS (https://www.facebook.com/MessiahsKiss), featuring former session musicians for Tony Iommi and Saxon. Saturday sees the addition of old school thrashers ANNIHILATED (https://www.facebook.com/anihilated), as well as death metal band AGELESS OBLIVION https://www.facebook.com/agelessoblivion). Digital tech metal act THE IZUNA DROP (https://www.facebook.com/theizunadrop), featuring Jamie from UK Subs, are all set to perform on Sunday, alongside female-fronted, classic doomsters ALUNAH (https://www.facebook.com/alunah.doom).

Bloodstock 2015 logoBLOODSTOCK is also pleased to announce five bands for the Jagermeister Stage!  On Friday, if you’re a fan of bands like Karnivool and Tesseract, head over to check out progsters THE PARALLAX METHOD (https://www.facebook.com/theparallaxmethod). Female-fronted, dark melodic metallers WINTER STORM (https://www.facebook.com/winterstormuk) also nab a Friday slot.  Former Status Quo support band KNOCK OUT KAINE (https://www.facebook.com/knockoutkaine) bring their brand of ballsy rock ‘n’ roll to the Jager stage on Saturday. Inspired by heavy metal Gods of the late 70’s/early 80’s such as Budgie, Tank, Venom, and Motorhead, BLIND HAZE (https://www.facebook.com/Blindhazeband) steamroll in on Sunday, joined by Irish progressive trio SNOWBLIND (https://www.facebook.com/SnowblindIreland) – definitely one to see if you like your time changes and musical curveballs!
