The Summers most anticipated UK metal festival is ramping up the excitement this morning with another handful of crushing live bands.
Belgian death metal kings ABORTED stride onto the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Sunday. The band tell us, “BLOODSTOCK! It’s been a while! We couldn’t be more thrilled to lay waste to thee in the most offensive of manners this coming summer. Prepare my friends, the blastbeat is coming!” Their current album ‘TerrorVision’ is blazing holes in our speakers over at BOA HQ.
Californian Death Metal crew, Skeletal Remains join Saturday’s fray on the Sophie Lancaster stage.
The bands latest album “Devouring Mortality” shows how well SKELETAL REMAINS master the art of not sounding dated while being old schoolers at heart and is highly recommended to all fans of top-notch death metal!
Australian rockers, The Lazys will be landing on the Sophie Stage on Sunday. Their latest album ‘Tropical Haze‘ has been well received by the global rock community and will no doubt be a total banger for the Sunday!
3 HEADED SNAKE
