ENTOMBED A.D. join the main stage line-up at BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2014. LG Petrov and his fellow band members are once again ready to let the music do the talking after a year of internal struggles. BLOODSTOCK is the first place you can see the refreshed band in the UK this summer! Frontman, LG Petrov proclaims: “England! Long time no see!! And what better way is there than to come to play at Bloodstock Festival in August! We are looking forward to meeting all you headbangers again!”
British metalheads MONUMENT will be getting heads banging on the Sophie stage on Thursday, along with former ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ winners, GETHIKA who will be bringing their own brand of theatrical madness and extreme metal. Death/thrash metallers KROW, who hail all the way from Brazil, will be performing on the Sophie stage on Sunday. Also performing on Sunday’s Sophie stage is 16-yr old blues star-in-the-making AARON KEYLOCK.
BLOODSTOCK have also revealed six bands for the Jagermeister stage! UNDERSMILE and KING CREATURE will be performing on Friday, plus MASSIVE WAGONS and a special acoustic set from ORPHANED LAND on Saturday. If you’re still standing on Sunday, be sure to catch RABID BITCH OF THE NORTH and THE HERETIC ORDER.
BLOODSTOCK also announce the next batch of breaking bands for the New Blood stage. Supporting new bands is at the heart of BLOODSTOCK’s ethos and the New Blood stage gives them the platform to showcase grass-roots acts. Some acts are picked from CD submissions and some via the ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ tour which rolls through local clubs and venues throughout May, June and July.
Impressing the powers that be with their CD submissions, the New Blood stage welcomes NO SIN EVADES HIS GAZE on Friday, BORN OF THE JACKAL on Saturday, and TODAY THE SUN DIES on Sunday. The ‘Metal 2 The Masses’ Plymouth heat winner WARCRAB join the bill on Saturday, and Sunday’s New Blood stage welcome the Channel Islands’ victor, BYZANTHIAN NECKBEARD and the Dublin’s heat champions, PSYKOSIS.
