Bloodstock has just released an announcement covering new additions to the bill for this year’s running order. That’s six more bands over two different stages. Here’s the lowdown:
Welcome hotly-tipped Texan thrash squad Power Trip to the Saturday main stage bill! Having just wrapped on one of the best Metal package tours of recent years with Trivium, Code Orange and Venom Prison, Power Trip’s incendiary live show is not to be missed! Are they the future of modern thrash?! Check out their video for Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe) taken from their Nightmare Logic album, out now on Southern Lord:
In the wake of scorching reviews for their recent debut album Mire, sludge doom beasts Conjurer join us for a Saturday Sophie Lancaster stage slot. Check out their 360 degree video for Retch and get soaked in their sonic brutality by clicking on the Youtube link below. Meanwhile, album bundles and Mire merch can be snapped up by clicking this link.
Also landing a spot on Saturday’s Sophie bill are British Thrash/Death outfit, Forgotten Remains. The five piece are set to release a new album this year. In the interim, check out their 2016 video for Morbid Reality:
Progressive Black Metal collective, A Forest Of Stars also join the Sophie bill on Saturday. The band, who describe themselves as “appointing a fusion of black metal, romanticism, the occult, psychedelia, folk and the improprieties of madness into one unsightly whole” (which is nice!) are hard at work on a new album due later this year. In the meantime, check out their video for Gatherer Of The Pure.
Grabbing a Sunday Sophie stage spot are fast-rising trio, Alien Weaponry. Hailing all the way from Waipu in New Zealand, they blend Hardcore and Thrash influences with their Maori heritage to create a sound uniquely their own. Teenage brothers Henry and Lewis de Jong joined by Ethan Trembath on bass, the trio recently signed to Napalm Records and are readying their debut album, Tū for release in June. Check out the Holding My Breath video for their first single to be sung entirely in English rather than their native Maori language:
Greek thrash squad Bio-Cancer also land themselves a slot on Sunday’s Sophie stage. The band are wrapping up the touring cycle for 2015’s Tormenting The Innocent album so catch them while you can! Check out the video for Bulletproof, taken from that album here:
