Can you give the readers a quick introduction please.
We are Balls Deep a 4 piece metal band from Stoke on Trent. We have been together 2 years and are just ready to release our debut album  A THOUSAND NIGHTS at bloodstock.

How would you describe your sound.
We are Balls Deep metal. No fucking around, no build ups, no fancy pants or flashy knickers. Straight to the point. Taking our influences from the likes of snot, pantera, dry kill logic to name a few

Why did you want to become part of the Jagermeister Stage line up. 
Because Jagermeister is fucking gorgeous. And they have always supported the metal music scene and up and coming artists. And the music industry needs companies like jagermeister to help the little guys and its a great pleasure and honour to be asked to play.

What was your initial reaction when you found out you were playing on the Jagermeister.
Its hard to put into words what we felt. An explosion of excitement, honour and achievement as we have worked really hard in this short space of time to get our name out there. We will show you on stage what it means to be asked.

How does it feel to be doing an acoustic set?
We wont be doing an acoustic set…. it will be the full cock and bollocks.

What can the audience expect from you at the festival.
Loud, aggresive, beer and jager drenched balls deep metal. Good times. Fun for all the family

Butt hinge (guitarist) played back in 2009 with his old band long time dead. But other than that we are all virgins.
Just the atmosphere and organisation in genral is better than any other festival. Its a great mix of the big bands with a chance for new and up n comin bands to be on a line-up with there heros. Its also a great way to find new bands rather than always listening to what you already know.

What is your opinion of the Bloodstock line-up.
It gets bigger and better every year. A great mix of old and new. Personally we all have different bands we really wanna catch so i caters for all of us in some way or other.
