Added to the Sunday Sophie stage line up are relentless road dogs, BREED 77. Bound to deliver a pummeling performance, these energetic Gibraltan bruisers are sure to bust out some new tunes from their latest album ‘The Evil Inside’, which was released in March – read our reviews of the first two singles released from that album below:
Drown (released 26/11/2012)
Bring On The Rain (released 18/03/2012)
Also appearing on Sunday’s Sophie Lancaster stage is SACRED MOTHER TONGUE. Having received huge plaudits for their second album, ‘Out of the Darkness’, and live shows, the Northampton based band are building quite the name for themselves.
Opening Friday’s main stage, and fresh off the back of the release of ‘IV’, their first album in ten years, are British post metallers, EARTHTONE 9. The band are stoked to find their way to Catton Park’s hallowed ground, commenting “Earthtone 9 have never played Bloodstock, so we could not be more excited! It’s one of our only gigs this year, so we are truly going to make the most of it. There may well be some drinking!“
A whole raft of acts are also set to grace the JAGERMEISTER stage. Friday’s bill includes solo artist MITCHELL EMMS, medieval metallers RAVENAGE and 80’s-styled newcomer, MIA KLOSE. Saturday’s line up rolls out the inimitable EARLS OF MARS, Stoke on Trent aggressors BALLS DEEP, and rowdy riffmeisters CAVORTS, while Sunday’s features prog death metallers BETRAEUS, Sacred Mother Tongue’s shredmaster ANDY JAMES’s GUITAR CLINIC, and the self-proclaimed “progressive epic” outfit, OPERATION ERROR.
