Bloodstock Announces Final 2017 Band Additions

With three weeks to go til the metal hoards descend on Catton Park for a weekend of heavy merriment, the Bloodstock organizers are pleased to reveal the final bands for this year’s edition, issuing the following statement:

“Joining the Ronnie James Dio main stage on Sunday will be hotly tipped five-piece Venom Prison. The Welsh death metallers romped home with the Best New Band gong at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards last month.

“Regrettably, we’ve two switches as Mantar had to withdraw from their slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage on Saturday, but the very capable Red Rum will fill their boots. Hailing from the Saxon county of Notts, don’t miss this folk-metal collection of cut-throat pirates, epic Vikings, and bloodthirsty warriors!

“Also due to circumstances beyond our control, Scarab will no longer be able to appear, so UK thrash heroes Xentrix will make a welcome return debuting their new singer (who they met at Bloodstock last year) and step into their Saturday evening Sophie Stage spot.

“Bloodstock can also now announce the final batch of bands from this year’s Metal 2 The Masses competition. Performing on the Hobgoblin New Blood stage Friday will be Hitchin victors Raze The Void with their brand of prog meets melo-death, Oxford metal champions K-Lacura, and tech riffers Embodiment who won in Bristol. Saturday welcomes Yorkshire metalheads Hoofknuckle, who took first prize in Selby, and Lincs tog dogs Hundred Year Old Man.

“Rounding things out on Sunday are Northants hard rockers Switchblade City, London tech progsters Sentience Birmingham alternative prog victors Netherhall, and electro rockers Seething Akira, who grabbed the top spot in Bournemouth. Also joining the fun on Sunday are Hobgoblin upload winners, Battalions, bringing the sludge and grind from their hometown of Hull.

“Bloodstock has also managed to squeeze one more band on to the Jagermeister stage on Sunday. If you like old school thrash, be sure to head over to catch Kettering headbangers Unitra.”
