  EVILE, MARIONETTE, FURYON AND DERISION CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK SOPHIE STAGE
27th March 2012

bloodstock open air



With the main Ronnie James Dio stage filling up with a host of exclusive appearances from some of Metal's mightiest megastars, including Dimmu Borgir, Paradise Lost, The Black Dahlia Murder, Hatebreed, Nile and many more, Bloodstock Open Air reveals four more names for it's second stage.

Coming back to where it all began, British Thrashers Evile return to Bloodstock to deliver a high energy neck-breaking thrash feast. Guitarist Old Drake comments: "It was great to wake up to the confirmation of our appearance at the one and only Bloodstock Festival. With the release of our 'Five Serpent's Teeth' album we dedicated the track 'Centurion' to the festival, and for them to have us back with a great slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage, it's bound to be a show to remember. We may just even have a special, first time live-airing, of the previously mentioned track for the BOA masses. Come along for your Evile fix! Long live Bloodstock!"

Making their UK festival debut, Gothenburg's Marionette will help get the party started on the Thursday night on the Sophie stage. With their roots in melodic death Metal, last year's 'Nerve' album saw the band evolve into something truly unique, combining industrial laced Metal with stunning soundscapes, earning them rave reviews across the board.

"Our sights are firmly set on the UK following our recent run there with Dead By April, 'Slay The UK' tour in May and our upcoming appearance at Bloodstock Open Air in August." Says guitarist and mainman Aron Parmerud. "BOA is a festival we have heard great things about from fans and bands we have toured with and we look forward to tearing up the East Midlands again!"

They are joined by Brighton rockers Furyon, who's recently released 'Gravitas' album is currently earning them praise and adoration across the world of rock. Iconic riffs, jaw dropping solos and one of the tightest rhythm sections this country has ever produced, the Sophie stage is in for a treat.

The band checked in to say: "Furyon are delighted to be booked for the immense Bloodstock for our second year and are proud to be able to contribute to the Sophie Lancaster stage and foundation."

They are joined by UK Metal mongers Derision, who will deliver a furious set of 80s inspired thrash bound to go down a storm at the UK's most Metal festival.

At only £115 for a four day ticket with camping included, Bloodstock offers incredible value for money and more exclusive appearances than any other festival. With headline sets from Behemoth, Alice Cooper, plus a very very special mystery headliner - to be revealed at 6pm on the 6th June - comedy, fairground rides and a genuine real ale bar, there is no better place for the British Metalhead this summer.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
