VoiVod, Sabaton, Wolfsbane, Xentrix And More Added To Bloodstock Festival 2013 Line-Up

Bloodsotck 2013 is shaping up to be the metal event of the summer, with another ten head-bangin’ bands confirmed to join headliners, Slayer, King Diamond and Lamb Of God.

Canadian prog thrash pioneers, Voivod are set to play their only UK show of 2013 at Bloodstock Festival. The band’s latest album, ‘Target Earth’ was released in January and marks a landmark 30th anniversary in the band’s illustrious career. Get yourself educated!

Swedish metallers, Sabaton also step up into a main stage slot. The band are currently on the road in Europe on their Swedish Empire tour and have been making regular video blogs from the road. Watch the latest episodes here or click on over to Facebook and give them a ‘like’ and catch the updates there. The band’s current album, ‘Carolus Rex’ was voted the ‘Best Album of 2012’ by Sweden’s biggest metal mag, Sweden Rock.

Wolfsbane headline the Sophie Lancaster stage on the final day of the festival. Guitarist, Jase Edwards comments: “It is an absolute honour and we can't wait to bringing our brand of fuckin’ Howling Mad Lunacy to Bloodstock for the first time!! To play alongside such bands as Anthrax and Slayer is a huge privilege. We're really looking forward to catching up with the bands we have played with in the past and we're also very excited to be headlining the Sophie Lancaster stage on the last day as we have been active supporters of the charity and have taken part in fundraising events locally. We'll close the Sophie Lancaster Stage with full on Wolfsbane Howling Madness!!! Cum on!!!”

Brit thrash pioneers, Xentrix join the bill at Catton Park as special guests on the Sophie stage. Xentrix’s guitarist, Kristian Havard is looking forward to it; "We can't wait to play Bloodstock, this is the first festival for Xentrix for over 20 years. The line-up this year is awesome, so to be included on the bill, is a massive honour. We're going out with one mission, get the crowd thrashing like it’s 1989!!".

Also added to the Sophie stage are Powerquest, who play their final show ever at Bloodstock. Steve Williams (keyboards) enthused, “I’m really thrilled that we will be taking to the stage for the last time at BOA in 2013. There’s a certain symmetry about it as we played Bloodstock Indoor in 2003 as part of our very first tour. Really looking forward to rounding off 12 years with a bang and also with some very special guests joining us from down the years! See you there!”

Further additions to the Sophie Stage include Argentinian folk metallers Skiltron, Celtic doomsters Mael Mordha, Nottingham black metal thrashers Evil Scarecrow, York metal five-piece RSJ, and melodic death metal Swedes Gormathon.
