The Winter season is about to kick into effect at any moment but bare in mind that the UK’s most metal of festivals is just a mere 10 months away! Overdrive brings you the latest bands that will be taking to the stage in Catton Hall this August.

Joining this year’s already insane line-up is non-other than CODE ORANGE. who have been ripping up the Hardcore blueprint and establishing themselves as one of the worlds most innovative new artists,

Code Orange

Joining them will be the mighty SKELETONWITCH who are currently gearing up for a selection of dates with Mantar. With their new studio release ‘Devouring Radiant Light‘ the Ohio quartet have been gaining serious respect from both the metal fan community as well as the metal media. Check out a slab of heaviness from that album below;

Also added to the bill for the weekend is ROTTING CHRIST who after 20 years of extreme noise, will be returning to Bloodstock following their outstanding 2016 performance, which you can check out below;

In February 2008 the, then rather unknown, Swiss folk-metal newcomers ELUVEITIE published an album which would later be heralded as one of the most important reasons for the band‘s break-through: ‘SLANIA‘.

What ELUVEITIE achieved with that album is not something you could call phenomena. It‘s much more the product of hard, passionate work; the kind of work you put into something you love with all your heart. Even though the band went quickly from being an underground act to being internationally successful, they had to fight their way to the top, shedding blood, sweat and tears! Euphoric reactions, sold-out shows and a newfound respect the world over were the well-earned rewards for their hard work.

With headliners, SABATON and SCORPIONS already announced alongside CRADLE OF FILTH, DEE SNIDER, SOILWORK, CHILDREN OF BODOM, HYPOCRISY and QUEENSRYCHE, Bloodstock 2019 is shaping up to be a formidable landmark festival for the organisers. 

Standard weekend tickets are currently available at ‘early bird’ prices (just £132 for four days of metal fun), so grab yours now, via this link and save a few quid. Campervan passes are also available in limited quantities, but be quick, over half the available spaces have sold already!
