British stoner/doom overlords, ORANGE GOBLIN are set for a main stage slot in 2015. Having recently unleashed their eighth studio album, ‘Back From The Abyss’ via Candlelight Records, the band are currently laying waste to Europe on tour with the mighty St Vitus. Check out the brand new video for ‘Sabbath Hex’ from the new release here below.
Norwegian black metallers 1349 also sign up. With latest studio album ‘Massive Cauldron Of Chaos’ recently hitting the racks, the band have also found time to collaborate with Minnesota’s Surly Brewing Company and launch their own ‘1349 Black Ale’. Check out this informative video clip featuring drummer Frost and vocalist Ravn explaining how the whole thing came about.
Also joining the hordes at Catton Park are reunited US metalheads ARMORED SAINT. The band are about to hit the studio to record their new opus for label Metal Blade; their first new tunes since 2010’s sixth studio album ‘La Raza’. Check out that album’s video for ‘Left Hook From Right Field’ below, or for a classic cut, try ‘Reign Of Fire’, taped way back in 1991.
The band are looking forward to their slot at the festival, enthusing “ARMORED SAINT are super excited and honoured to be a part of BLOODSTOCK 2015! And by then we’ll have our new record out! See you all soon!”
