BLOODSTOCK racks up more bands for 2015

BLOODSTOCK is romping into March with 5 more metal monsters to add to the 2015 bill!

Recently reformed sludgecore beasts, RAGING SPEEDHORN will be bringing their filthy riffs to the Ronnie James Dio main stage.  The band’s Gordon Morison comments “We’re over the moon to be playing BLOODSTOCK 2015.  It’ll be awesome to share the stage with some of our old friends like Orange Goblin and Napalm Death.  See you down the front!”.  Check out the official video for ‘The Hate Song’ from their arsenal of tunes; Raging Speedhorn – The Hate Song (Uncut Version).

Progressive metal Brits XERATH also bring the heavy to Friday’s main stage.  The band enthuse, “We are utterly stoked to announce we will be returning to Catton Hall once again to perform at this year’s Bloodstock festival. We are especially proud to confirm we will be gracing the mainstage for the first time since our debut at the festival in 2009 which promises to almost certainly be a career defining moment for the band. We sincerely cannot wait to see you all there! Warm up those necks Bloodstockers!”  Check out their video for ‘Machine Insurgency’ here; Xerath – Machine Insurgency – Official Video HD (Candlelight Records).

French groove metal eccentrics,TREPALIUM are set for a Sophie stage slot on Sunday.  Dubbed “one of the most stupidly entertaining bands in the metal underground right now” by Metal Hammer, these former touring mates of the mighty Gojira released a new EP, ‘Voodoo Moonshine’ via Season of Mist late last year.  Check out the super cool video for ‘Moonshine Limbo’ from that EP here: TREPALIUM – Moonshine Limbo (Official Video).
