And we have more news, this time looking at from mid June to the 1st July.
Bloodstock went and done it, served something extra special for the fans, now if you want to be on the Ronnie James Dio stage to announce one of the band's this year, take a guided tour behind the scenes, meet the organizing team (you should know who they are by now) and have the experience of a life time that your local metal friends would wet themselves over, here is what you need to do:
1. Video yourself on any device, deliver your own introduction line (e.g. They are one of the big 4, they got more testosterone than a Spanish bull in heat season, they sadly lost a brother, but here they are to slay us all, it's only f**king Slayer!)
2. Upload your best videos to any site i.e. YouTube, Daily Motion or any other video enhanced site and email the link to firstname.lastname@example.org
Sit back and wait, oh and watch the language! (We mean offensive lingo)
DEADLINE IS JULY 18TH, THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON AFTER
More band announcements!
Brits Earthtone 9 and Sacred Mother Tongue come freshly prepared to unload sheer hell upon the fans in sensational fashion, whilst on the Sunday on the Sophie stage, Gibraltar's finest Breed 77 will surely get people doing more flamenco moshing than your average Spanish or Gibraltarian Metal gig. But is that it? NO indeed not as for the lighter side of things (you can take off the corpse paint now), the Jagermeister stage serves up a whole host of exciting rock and alternative acts to tickle your ears (haha fooled you!), soloist Mitchell Emms, Medieval merchants Ravenage, Balls Deep, Mia Klose, Cavorts, Operation Error and Earls of Mass will grace the stage across the festival period, as well as NOT TO MISS one-on-many drop in session with Sacred Mother Tongue's very own Andy James who will answer you any guitar question you wish (sensible ones please).
But to kick off the weekend is Thursday's Sophie Lancaster stage action, supplied by Bristolian mob Bull-Riff Stampede, with Motherload, Ravenage and OAF all chipping in highly anticipated sets... oh wait we forgot one more, get this 'Tragedy' - a BeeGees cover band, metal style. Here at GMA we wondered what the songs would be...
"Stayin' Anthrax", "Negligence Fever", "More Than A Whitechapel"
We gave up.
