Also along for the ride will be hardcore bruisers, Feed The Rhino. The Kent natives will be harassing the PA with their brand of brutal, loud-as-fuck anthems that are sure to get the pits well and truly oiled up as they open up the main stage on Friday, August 10th! The guys have just released their latest studio album ‘The Silence’ via Century Media Records.

All the way from Japan, Bloodstock welcomes Lovebites, an all-female metal band that packs a serious punch. These ladies will be gracing the Sophie Lancaster Stage on Friday for a legendary UK debut performance that simply can not be missed
Lovebites started working on their first EP at the end of 2016, joined by amazing an engineering team of Mikko Karmila and Mika Jussila from Finland who are known for their work with Nightwish, Children Of Bodom and Amorphis to name a few. The Lovebite EP was the culmination of those sessions, released in mid-2017. In August, Mi-ya became a full member of Lovebites and, as a full 5 member group, they released their first full album, Awakening From Abyss, in October 2017.
London-based Death metal crew De Profundis will be joining the Sophie Lancaster lineup for Friday as they unleash their impressive brand of cross-pollinated death metal. Taking influences from a multitude of genres, De Profundis have become known for their unique approach to the extreme music community, especially in their hometown of London.
Check out the video for ‘All Consuming‘ below:

What would Bloodstock be without an extra dollop of thrash? Well, thankfully, UK thrashers, Reprisal will be on hand to provide a frantic, swirling blast of riffs on the Sophie stage, also on Friday.
The self-confessed ‘brutal thrash‘ outfit, that hail from the UK’s South East can be found also, on Friday over on the Sophie Lancaster stage, no doubt raising all kinds of hell! If you need convincing, then check out the video below for ‘Atomic Tectonics‘.
Finally, the last addition to the awesome current line-up is Uncured. Currently, on tour with Soulfly in America, the New Yorker’s have been tearing up venues with their progressive death metal racket. This will be the bands first time performing at Bloodstock and are expected to bring just about everything they have to the stage.
