Bloodstock Festival Confirms Lamb Of God As 2013 Saturday Night Headliner

Bloodstock Open Air festival has confirmed that their 2013 Saturday night headliner will be groove-metal overlords, Lamb Of God.

The headline appearance will only be the Richmond, VA-based band’s second UK show since the release of their critically lauded ‘Resolution’ album back in January 2012. The riff-stacked album bulldozed on to the US Billboard album chart at Number 3 and racked up Top 20 status in the UK, cementing their status as natural successors to Pantera’s post-thrash crown. Check out the video for ‘Ghost Walking’, the lead video track from ‘Resolution’ below.

Also added as a UK exclusive, are Finland’s Amorphis. Esa Holopainen, Amorphis’s guitarist and driving force had this to say: "Greetings from Hell-sinki's 5K studio where Amorphis is finishing recording our forthcoming 11th album. Our agent gave us the great news that we are booked for Bloodstock Festival 2013! Bloodstock has become one of the best European metal events, so it's an honour to be part of the festival again. We promise to put on an epic show, so keep the horns up and see you at Bloodstock next summer!" Want to know more about the forthcoming Peter Tägtgren-produced opus? Check out Part 1 of their studio report video series, below. The new album is due out through Nuclear Blast Records in Spring 2013.

Swedish black metal legends, Dark Funeral also join the bill. 2013 is shaping up to be a landmark year for Dark Funeral; not only do they play Catton Park’s hallowed grounds, but 2013 marks their 20th anniversary as a band, and a new studio album (‘In The Sign of The Horns’) will be released via new label, Century Media. Founder and guitarist, Lord Ahriman leads his revamped band, now fronted by Nachtgarm, full throttle into a new Satanic crusade in 2013. Hail the goat!
