Danish metallic hardcore outfit Lifesick has announced a European tour which begins next week and runs through mid-December, providing support for Harley Flanagan on most the shows.
Lifesick is an overwhelmingly hard-hitting act who integrates elements of morbid, extreme metal into aggressive, mosh-primed hardcore. The band is currently in Dead Rat studio recording their follow up to 6.0.1which was released in November 2016 on LP format via Southern Lord, and prior to that on CD format via FWH Records.

Lifesick twists the clobbering sounds of bands like Merauder, Xibalba, and Nails, combined with the northern European climate: harsh, cold, and steeped in metal history. Between brutal breakdowns and direct, forceful vocals, the young Danes make their mark with evil melodies that ooze black and death metal vibes, all delivered in the crushing tone of the HM-2.
London's Formicarius joins Devilment for a fiendishly festive December show at the Camden Underworld
The fiends of Formicarius have been invited to join Dani Filth’s Devilment for an evening of quintessentially English black metal at the Camden Underworld, on Sunday December 10th.
Formicarius will offer up a selection of dark delights from their Black Mass Ritual debut, before Nuclear Blast recording artists Devilment invite the assembled hordes to revel in the wickedness of The Mephisto Waltzes.
Formicarius launched their Black Mass Ritual album at the Underworld with a triumphant show alongside Tengger Cavalry and cannot wait to return to what is fast becoming a favourite venue for the performance of their black incantations.
There can surely be no finer diabolical pairing than the Cradle Of Filth frontman’s gothic horror show of Devilment and the wild, symphonic darkness of Formicarius. A savagely splendid way to kick off the festive season we’re sure you’ll agree...
In just one week, Benighted will embark on a great adventure by touring parts of Asia and India. The French death grind maniacs will perform in Dubai, India, Malaysia, and Vietnam.

We are stoked to announce our very first tour in Asia and India to be starting soon this November! We can hardly wait to see you all at our shows and discover how crazy your mosh-pits are in India, Dubaï, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam... stay sick and see you on tour!"

Download Festival, the world’s premier rock and metal event, has announced musical icon Ozzy Osbourne as the first of its three heavyweight headliners. The three-day festival takes place 8 – 10 June 2018 at the spiritual home of rock in Donington Park, Leicestershire. Tickets available now at downloadfestival.co.uk/tickets.
No stranger to the hallowed grounds of Donington, The Prince Of Darkness Ozzy Osbourne will headline the Sunday night. Having previously graced the main stage in previous years fronting Black Sabbath, this will be his first ever Download headline solo appearance. The Download Festival set comes as part of Ozzy Osbourne’s final world tour announcement this morning.
Download Festival’s promoter, Andy Copping says:
“We’re unbelievably excited to have Ozzy as one of the headliners next year. Already hailing from the Midlands, Ozzy Osbourne is no stranger to Download, and after Black Sabbath closed the festival in 2016, how could I not ask The Prince of Darkness to come back all on his own? The Download family are without a shadow of a doubt, in for a treat.”
Download Festival is the home of rock music and takes place on the sacred grounds of Donington Park, which have been associated with rock since the eighties. The festival attracts icons of rock and metal to its main stage, plus some of the hottest new acts in the world. AC/DC, KISS, Metallica, Black Sabbath, The Prodigy, Rage Against The Machine, Slipknot, Linkin Park and many more have all headlined its main stage and in 2018, fans can see the Miracle Man, Ozzy Osbourne.

Just in time for Halloween, Bloodstock is excited to announce four more spooktacular bands and add the 2018 Rock Society tickets to the ticket store.
Watain will bring their black metal ritual to headline Sunday’s Sophie Lancaster stage in a UK festival exclusive. Frontman Erik Danielsson admits that their:-
"last performance at Bloodstock in 2012 was also the final date on the ‘Lawless Darkness’ tour. The sun was setting while we played and the crowd was getting louder and wilder the darker it became. A very charged atmosphere. Eager now to return and see what the eventful years that have passed and the force accumulated since then has done to both us and the Bloodstock crowd. Furthermore, England is of course sacred ground when it comes to Metal in general, so when performing there, the stakes are always high. May all those that doubt be impaled upon them."
Look out for the band’s long awaited sixth studio album arriving on 5th January 2018!
German power metallers, Orden Ogan also land a Ronnie James Dio main stage slot on Saturday. The band released ‘Gunmen’, their fifth studio album, this summer via AFM Records. Check out the video for ‘Gunman’ here and get a taster of what’s in store for their set in 2018 - https://youtu.be/JPm46Qgyn24.
Atlanta aggrotech outfit, Combichrist also join the main stage bill for an early slot on Friday. The band have been working on new music after the release of their eighth studio album, ‘This Is Where Death Begins’ which landed in 2016. Check out the new track, ‘Broken:United’ at the following link - https://Combichrist.lnk.to/BrokenUnited.
Also landing an early main stage slot on Friday are British death/grind four-piece, Memoriam. Combining ex-members of Bolt Thrower and Benediction, Memoriam’s pedigree is high. The band of scene veterans are hard at work on the follow up to their debut, ‘For The Fallen’ released via Nuclear Blast earlier this year. Check out ‘Reduced To Zero’ taken from that opus here - https://youtu.be/Nmucoieg2Lc.
Bloodstock’s Rock Society tickets become available in the store on Halloween morning, 31st October at 9.00am! The ‘Rock Society’ is effectively the festival’s ‘Members Club’, offering not only a 10% discount on your weekend ticket (on top of the early bird discount if you purchase the Rock Society membership + ticket bundle option), but all sorts of other cool benefits like priority signing tent access, a Rock Society laminate, access to the VIP Serpents Lair bar, a tour of the backstage & production areas to see ‘behind the scenes’, the chance to meet with the festival organisers, a dedicated hangout area in the Rock Society tent on site, a Rock Society Facebook community where you can make friends and get to know your fellow RockSoc members and plenty more besides. Full details can be found at http://www.bloodstock.uk.com/pages/rock-society. Memberships are priced at £75, limited to 300 and sell out almost immediately, so don’t delay if you want to pick one up.
Also now in the store are tickets for our new Vanaheim campervan field. Due to increasing demand each year, we've made some site adjustments to allow for more pitches. As such, the new Vanaheim site is located across the road, directly adjacent to Serpents Lair VIP parking, allowing an increase in size to accommodate 240 campervans, as opposed to just 130. Campervan pitches always sold through very rapidly, so this allows for more of our metal brethren to join the campervan club. Tickets for campervan pitches will remain at this year's price of £60.
With Friday night headliners, Judas Priest, Saturday night headliners, Gojira and Sunday headliners, Nightwish already announced, along with Emperor, Devildriver and Nails, 2018 is shaping up to be another stellar year for Bloodstock.
Bloodstock.’s first wave of Serpents Lair VIP tickets are now Sold out! The final allocation, the last batch of VIP deluxe packages and a limited amount of VIP upgrades priced at £145 (for those who’ve already bought ‘early bird’ tickets) will then become available on 16th December at 9am in the ticket store. Mark your calendars and don't delay if you want to join us in 2018’s VIP Serpents Lair, as they’re moving faster than ever before!
Standard weekend tickets are currently available at ‘early bird’ prices (just £125 for four days of metal fun) so grab yours now at the ticket store if you want to save £20! In order to keep up with inflation and extra costs in 2018, standard weekend tickets with camping will increase from last year's £139 to £145 once the ‘early bird’ allocation is gone.
Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th-12th August 2018. Get additional information over at www.bloodstock.uk.com.
