More bands confirmed for New Blood Stage at Bloodstock

BLOODSTOCK is drawing closer by the day and the latest cohort of Metal 2 The Masses winners have secured their spot on the New Blood Stage.

Ipswich groove metallers ARMS TO OBLIVION will be appearing on the Friday after winning the Essex M2TM. Bristol’s MOON REAPER UK will deliver their own blackened death/doom on the same day.

On the Saturday, you can check out County Durham’s SWARMS who triumphed in Newcastle and Kent hardcore mob BROKEN CALLING.

London’s SANGUINEM will be bringing their melo death mix to Catton Park on the Sunday. You can check them out here with the video for their track ‘Hate Transfusion’.

This year sees the return to Bloodstock of the very successful ‘Pink For Sylvia’ theme on both Thursday and Friday, in memory of Sophie Lancaster’s mother, the founder of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Pink was Sylvia’s favourite colour. 

Corpsepaint Saturday does exactly what it says on the tin!  If you don’t want to do your own make up, stop by the Sophie Lancaster charity stall in the main arena and they’ll paint your face for a small donation, with all proceeds going to the Foundation. On Sunday, it’ll be Helloween Pumpkins day, so bust out your best pumpkin-themed attire to welcome the mighty HELLOWEEN!
