We’re now past the halfway point to BLOODSTOCK with 20 weekends left before the UK’s best metal weekender! Let’s kick that off by announcing seven more bands!


Anthemic black metallers WINTERFYLLETH join the main stage fray. Their fifth album ‘The Dark Hereafter’ was released last October by Candlelight Records/Spinefarm. Check out the epic tracks via Band Camp at this location. For more info, click this link.


We’re also excited to reveal a handful of bands for the Sophie Lancaster
stage. DENDERA bring their classic metal to BLOODSTOCK for a Friday slot.
The band have their third studio album set for release this year, so expect
new material! Watch their video below for ‘Claim Our Throne’ for a taster of
their sound. For more on DENDERA, check out

Saturday sees doomsters KROH join the Sophie bill. KROH is the brainchild
of Paul Kenney, founder member of both Mistress and Fukpig. Watch their
video for ‘Mother Serpent’ below and get the latest on the band on Facebook at this location.

Also landing a Saturday slot are ABHORRENT DECIMATION, whose ‘Miasmic
Mutation’ album was lauded by Metal Hammer as “one of 2015’s must-have
death metal records”. Check out ‘Glaciate The Servants’ below and get more info on this link.


Bagging a Sunday slot are British experimental metal squad, BOSSK. The band
built their name via a series of EPs and touring with the likes of Cult Of
Luna, Textures, and Baroness, and are now signed to Deathwish Inc. Their
debut studio album ‘Audio Noir’ was released last year. If that sounds
like your thing, investigate further at .


We also welcome doom pop outfit, COURTESANS to the Sunday bill.


The band say, “To perform at BLOODSTOCK is incredibly exciting. It’s a huge honour
to play the Sophie Lancaster Stage, her legacy is at the heart of our
ethics. We’re advocates of equality and have a zero tolerance to any form
of prejudice. We hope to raise a few eyebrows and stir some shit up!
Their new EP ‘Better Safe Than Sober’ comes out this month. Watch the
video for ‘Mesmerise’ below.

Rounding out Sunday’s additions are Brit crew, WRETCHED SOUL. Described by
Zero Tolerance as “refreshingly difficult to categorise“, Terrorizer had a
go and called them, “one of the UK’s most promising underground Thrash


WRETCHED SOUL’s savage second album ‘The Ghost Road’ was released
in December through UKEM Records. Have a listen on YouTube via
