Enslaved, Korpiklaani and Pro-Pain are the newest names to be added to Bloodstock 2015.
Having not played the festival since 2009, Enslaved guitarist Ivar Bjørnson is understandably excited:
“We’ve been to Bloodstock once… 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.”
Korpiklaani will be making a UK exclusive appearance! Guitarist Country Cane says:
“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.”
Already announced for Bloodstock are headliners Within Temptation, Rob Zombie and Trivium, as well as Opeth, Cannibal Corpse, Sepultura, Sabaton and more. Bloodstock is held at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 6th-9th August 2015.
