BLOODSTOCK is a little over two weeks away and activity is at fever pitch over at BLOODSTOCK HQ. The ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ finals have rocked to a conclusion and some more lucky young bands are joining the New Blood stage at Catton Park next month, plus there’s a few last additions for the Sophie and Jagermeister stages.
BALLS DEEP bring their trad groove metal to the Sophie Lancaster stage on the opening day, Thursday. The Brit outfit have been busy honing their ‘Pro-Pain cut with Black Sabbath’ sound, coming on like the bastard sons of Pantera and classic heavy metal.
Over on the Jagermeister stage, female-fronted power metallers ACELDAMA will be impressing allcomers with their high octane performance and audience interaction, while New Blood stage stoner rocker’s RESIN will be offering an additional acoustic spin on their new material.
Meanwhile, the New Blood stage welcomes the last clutch of winners from the last batch of M2TM roadshow finals. GOAT LEAF bring their doom groove from the Sheffield heats, OAKHAART’s tech death noise hails from Gloucestershire, impressing judges at the Bristol event, SINPATHETIC grace us with their death metal from the Preston night, ERADIKATOR’s thrash metal won out in Birmingham, and lastly but not least, CACODAEMONIC’s unholy, neo-classical infused death metal represents Nottingham.
