Default Communic Confirmed For Bloodstock Open Air 2008!


The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that Norwegian progressive power metallers COMMUNIC have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2008.

Communic were founded in March 2003 by ex-Scariot members guitarist/vocalist Oddleif Stensland and drummer Tor Atle Andersen who soon added bassist Erik Mortensen to their ranks. In July 2004, the band inked a deal with Nuclear Blast records and in September entered the studio with producer Jacob Hansen to record their debut album ‘Conspiracy In Mind’ which was released on February 21st 2005. The album received rave reviews including Album Of The Month in Germany’s Rock Hard and Heavy Oder Was magazines. A successful European tour helped expand their fan base and gained them further positive reviews.

In early 2006 they once again worked with Jacob Hansen on ‘Waves Of Visual Decay’, an album which saw them up the ante in both song-writing and performance and earned them the best reviews of their brief career thus far. Four Ks in Kerrang! and no less than nine Album Of The Month slots were just a handful of the accolades handed down. Among fans and critics alike, Communic have been hailed as one of the brightest hopes for taking metal forward into the future. Intelligent, aggressive, melodic and challenging: dark progressive metal has a new rising star.

Default Evile Confirmed For Bloodstock Open Air 2008!


The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that rising British thrashers EVILE have been added to the bill for BOA 2008.

Hailing from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, Evile are at the forefront of a grassroots thrash metal revival currently sweeping the UK underground. Influenced by the likes of Metallica, Slayer, Sepultura, Exodus and Annihilator amongst others, Evile are taking the sound of classic thrash to a new generation. No politics, no post-modernism, just good old-fashioned neck-snapping riffs.

Despite their tender years, the band have already issued two self-financed EPs, gigged extensively around the UK and beyond, and in October 2006 signed with Earache Records for the release of their debut album ‘Enter The Grave’. Produced by Flemming Rasmussen - the man behind the recording of Metallica’s ‘Ride The Lightning’ and ‘Master Of Puppets’ albums - ‘Enter The Grave’ has earned a string of rave reviews including glowing praise from Terrorizer, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer and Rocksound. The band have also picked up support slots with major names such as Exodus and Machine Head and have a hectic live schedule lined up for the immediate future.

Despite being un-signed at the time, Evile were hand-picked to headline the second stage of BOA 2006 and their return to the festival promises to be a thrash attack to remember.

Default Opeth Confirmed For Bloodstock Open Air 2008!


The Bloodstock team are delighted to announce that Swedish progressive death metal maestros OPETH have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2008.

Lead by vocalist/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt, Opeth have become synonymous with fearless experimentation, memorable song writing and stellar musicianship which has seen them rise from the Scandinavian underground to become one of the most unique rock/metal bands of the last decade.

Opeth were formed in Stockholm in 1990 and spent several years developing their sound and solidifying a line-up before releasing their debut album ‘Orchid’ on Candlelight Records in 1995. ‘Morningrise’ followed in ’96 along with their first major tour supporting Cradle Of Filth. 1998's concept album ‘My Arms, Your Hearse’ featured slightly more compact songs and a darker tone, but it was with 1999’s ‘Still Life’ for their new label Peaceville that they began making waves with the mainstream metal media. Moving to Music For Nations in 2001 for the release of ‘Blackwater Park’ finally signalled their critical and commercial breakthrough and the album is still regarded by many observers as a landmark in their career.

Never a band to rest on their laurels, Opeth recorded their next two albums simultaneously. ‘Deliverance’ – released in 2002 – cracked the Billboard Top 100 album chart and further extended the band’s exploration of and experimentation with their signature progressive death metal sound. ‘Damnation’ – released in 2003 – abandoned death metal in favour of a traditional 1970’s progressive rock feel.

Their most recent album, 2005’s ‘Ghost Reveries’, saw the band combine elements from many of their previous works and again met with widespread critical acclaim.

The band have just issued a live album entitled ‘The Roundhouse Tapes’ and have been announced as support for Dream Theater on their 2008 North American tour.

Opeth’s performance at Bloodstock Open Air Metal Festival promises to be an unforgettable highlight of the weekend.

Default Re: Communic Confirmed For Bloodstock Open Air 2008


The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that Swiss death/folk metallers ELUVEITIE have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Airs 2008.

The band were formed by Chrigel Glanzmann in 2002 as a studio-project and recorded their first EP ‘Vên’ the following year. In 2004, Eluveitie signed to Dutch label Fear Dark Records who issued a re-mastered and partly re-recorded version of ‘Vên’, which the band promoted through gigs with outfits such as Cruachan, Korpiklaani and Skyforger. In late 2005, they entered the studio to lay down their first full-length album ‘Spirit’, also for Fear Dark Records. Released in 2006, the album represented a big step forward for the band and helped them to land a deal with Nuclear Blast records for the release of their next album ‘Slania’ which is expected on February 15th, 2008.

Blending the atmospheres and themes of Pagan metal with modern melodic death metal, Eluveitie look set to take their place among the pantheon of Pagan metal’s elite.

Default Soilwork Confirmed For Bloodstock Open Air 2008!


The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that Swedish melodic death metallers SOILWORK have been confirmed for BOA 2008.

Along with fellow countrymen At The Gates, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity and The Haunted, Soilwork have earned a formidable reputation for taking the aggressive sound of 1990’s Swedish metal around the world and bravely forward into the new millennium. Forget the latest half-baked metalcore trend-hoppers - Soilwork did it first and did it better.

Formed in 1995 as Inferior Breed, the band switched to the name Soilwork (not a gardening reference but rather to working their way up from the ground!) the following year and cut their first demo ‘In Dreams We Fall Into The Eternal Lake’ in 1997. Their debut album ‘Steelbath Suicide’ was released in 1998 and caused a major stir within the underground. 2000’s follow up ‘The Chainheart Machine’ won them a deal with Nuclear Blast records for whom they recorded their breakthrough album ‘A Predator's Portrait’ which catapulted the band to the forefront of the melodic death metal scene.

The band worked with Strapping Young Lad mainman Devin Townsend on the recording of their next album, 2002’s ‘Natural Born Chaos’; another notable success which saw them mount their first American tour. ‘Figure Number Five’ soon followed and the band supported it with their biggest bout of touring to date, including dates with many newer bands drawing influence from the Swedish sound including Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Unearth, As I Lay Dying and Bleeding Through. 2005’s ‘Stabbing The Drama’ continued their phenomenal run as the band cracked the US independent charts with their most successful record and secured a slot on Ozzfest’s second stage. The band’s latest offering ‘Sworn To A Great Divide’ emerged in October and sees them striving as hard as ever to push modern metal to the next level.

Default Saint Deamon Confirmed For Bloodstock Open Air 2008!


The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that Scandinavian melodic metallers SAINT DEAMON have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2008.

The band were formed in 2006 by ex-Dionysus drummer Ronny Milianowicz who subsequently recruited fellow Dionysus member Nobby Noberg on bass, guitarist Toya Johansson and former Highland Glory/Wild Willy’s Gang frontman Jan Thore Grefstad on vocals. With the line-up complete, the band began work on their debut album ‘In Shadows Lost From The Brave’ which was produced by Jens Bogren (Symphony X, HammerFall) and has just been released on Frontiers Records.

Although new to the scene, members of the band have a host of song writing credits to their name including Ronny who has co-written with both Primal Fear and Cans, and Toya who’s worked with Sinner and Ride The Sky. Their wealth of experience has been put to good use on ‘In Shadows Lost From The Brave’ which combines classy melodic hard rock with touches of power metal and is already receiving great reviews.

Default Mob Rules Confirmed For Bloodstock Open Air 2008!


The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that German melodic metallers MOB RULES have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2008.

Formed in 1994 by vocalist Klaus Dirks, guitarist Matthias Mineur, bassist Thorsten Plorin and drummer Arved Manott, Mob Rules issued their first demo in 1996 with the addition of second guitarist Oliver Fuhlhage and after a series of well-received gigs, secured a deal with Limb Music for the release of their 1999 debut album ‘Savage Land’. After an appearance at the prestigious Wacken Open Air festival in 2000 and dates with the Scorpions and Overkill, the band released follow-up album ‘Temple Of Two Suns’ which was backed-up by extensive touring. A return to Wacken in 2002 preceded third album ‘Hollowed Be Thy Name’ which saw them tour with both Helloween and Rage. ‘Among The Gods’ emerged in 2004 through SPV before the band took a short break from recording and released a live DVD ‘Signs Of The Time’ in 2005. This period also saw the departure of Plorin and Fuhlhage who were replaced by Markus Brinkmann and Sven Lüdke respectively. A new studio album ‘Ethnolution A.D.’ appeared in late 2006, after which the band hit the road with UFO. Numerous gigs and festival appearances later, the band are currently working on their sixth full-length album which is expected just in time for their debut Bloodstock appearance.

Default Iced Earth Confirmed For Bloodstock Open Air 2008!


ICED EARTH EXCLUSIVE UK SHOW AT BLOODSTOCK FOR 2008

The Bloodstock team are delighted to announce that US metal titans ICED EARTH have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2008.

Formed in the early ‘80s as Purgatory by rhythm guitarist and songwriter Jon Schaffer, the band eventually became Iced Earth following Schaffer’s relocation from Indiana to Florida. Combining traditional heavy metal with elements of thrash and power metal, their first demo ‘Enter The Realm’ secured a deal with Century Media Records who issued the band’s self-titled debut album in 1991. Vocalist Gene Adam was replaced by John Greely for the follow-up ‘Night Of The Stormrider’ which emerged the following year, although Greely himself would soon make way for long-time frontman Matt Barlow who began his tenure with 1995’s ‘Burnt Offerings’, an album which saw Iced Earth take a huge leap forward and solidified their characteristic sound. The subsequent albums ‘The Dark Saga’ and breakthrough effort ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’ established the band at the forefront of the scene just as metal began to assert its presence once more in the wake of the grunge boom. A live album ‘Alive In Athens’ heralded Barlow’s departure to be replaced by former Judas Priest vocalist Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens who had himself left Priest to make way for the return of Rob Halford. Owens debuted on 2004’s ‘The Glorious Burden’, laying down some of the best work of his career and also appeared on last year’s ‘Framing Armageddon’, a continuation of themes first explored on ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’.

Never one to fight shy of controversy, in December 2007 Schaffer announced the return of Matt Barlow, a move which proved popular with many fans who had never fully embraced the undeniably talented Owens. The band are currently working on a new album tentatively titled ‘Revelation Abomination’ and preparing for their first live shows of 2008.
