The main stage next summer will see Norway’s Enslaved gracing it with their progressive Viking mastery. With a new album due in March 2015, expect to bang your head to some brand new tunes. Guitarist Ivar Bjørnson proclaims, “We’ve been to Bloodstock once before in 2009, and not only did we understand then why it has become the most important UK Metal festival – but it has grown to mammoth-proportions since. In sum; what an absolute pleasure and honour to be invited back. We like to think that we too have developed somewhat; having a few new, pretty awesome albums and world tours under our (over-stretched) belts. We can’t wait to come and show the Bloodstock crowd what we’ve been up to. To quote one of our spiritual beacons; General Melchett: ‘If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.’”.

Hailing from Finland, folk metal six-piece Korpiklaani are set to join the fray in a UK exclusive appearance. Guitarist Country Cane tells us; “After having great fun and sold out shows ‎with our good friends in Sabaton and TÝR, we are excited to be back in the UK to play Bloodstock in 2015. We plan to return and get the crowds singing and dancing Korpiklaani style on our next rock n roll adventure.”.

New York hardcore mob, Pro-Pain, are also set for an appearance on the Ronnie James Dio Stage. Formed all the way back in 1991, these guys have a whopping fourteen studio albums to pick the set list from, not least their latest pummelling opus, The Final Revolution..

These acts shall be joining a bill that includes the likes of Orange Goblin, 1349, Armoured Saint, Nuclear Assault, Death Angel, Death To All, Sepultura, Cannibal Corpse, Ihsahn, Opeth, Sabaton, Agalloch, Trivium (Friday headliner), Within Temptation (Saturday headliner) and Rob Zombie (Sunday headliner)..

Early bird tickets are currently on sale and available here, but be quick as they won’t be around for long (offer ends 15th of December at midnight!).
