BREAKING NEWS:KREATOR AND MORE TO PLAY BLOODSTOCK 2017 3rd March 2017
German thrash legends Kreator are to play Bloodstock’s main stage this Summer as Saturday special guests.
Vocalist/guitarist Mille Petrozza declares: "We are happy to finally return to Bloodstock. Kreator will give you the full treatment this time. WE SHALL KILL!"
The band released their fourteenth studio album, 'Gods Of Violence' (read all about it right here) in January via Nuclear Blast. Here's the video for the title track.
Flint firebrands King 810 have also been added to the Ronnie James Dio main stage on the Saturday in a UK festival exclusive, so this will be your only chance to catch the band on these shores this summer. Their genre-busting album, 'La Petite Mort (Or A Conversation With God)' was hugely lauded upon release last year and you can check out their visceral video for 'Alpha & Omega' right here.
This happened in Flint this week...
Black Metal marauders Inquisition will headline the Sophie Lancaster stage on Friday. The duo of Dagon and Incubus released their seventh album, 'Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar Beyond The Celestial Zenith' via Season Of Mist last August and you can listen to 'Wings Of Anu' from that right here.
And finally, for now, King Parrot fly in from their Aussie homeland for a Sophie stage slot. The self-dubbed "grindin', thrashin', punk wrecking machine" are on the road in support of their Phil Anselmo-produced disc, 'Dead Set' and here's their 2012 video for 'Shit On The Liver'. It was a finalist in the Australian Music Video Awards and has racked up nearly half a million YouTube views.
'The Beast Of Bloodstock' is Bloodstock's very own ale brewed by The Boot Beer microbrewery in Repton, Derbyshire and it scooped the Gold Award in the CAMRA East Midlands Champion Beer of Britain 'Strong Ale' category. At 6.66% alcohol it is a hefty beast but has a luscious, dark chocolate and caramel character and you'll find it at Bloodtsock 2017 which takes place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 10th to 13th August 2017.
