April and a rally-load of bands are set to be announced to play Bloodstock, there are a plethora of bands so let's keep this short and sweet.
Hailing from London, I AM I are confirmed to unleash hell on the SL stage on the Friday, whilst Hang The Bastard will also join them.
Continuing the British contingent (like we said), the next band to be locked in is Re-Animator of whose Thrash Metal sermons will stir up a crowd like no tomorrow as they reformed back in 2013 after a 20 year hiatus, yes 20 years.
Fire Red Empress are raring to go and unleash their riffs of hell upon the masses whilst Danish 'Blackcore' mob let hell break loose on the Friday. Performing on the Saturday, Jettblack will be leaving the stage for Fleshgod Apocalypse to wrap the day up
Finally we are pleased to see that Irish Metal trio Dead Label will be performing on the Sunday on the SL stage, with Claire Percival being our ex-Irish Correspondent, we will certainly love to pay homage to her band.
Jetting in from Australia, Ne Obliviscaris will be itching to perform at their debut UK performance on the Friday, so it is already shaping up to be a year of debuts for bands at BOA (the most we reckon for sometime).
Friday also sees Silas make the cut, call them experimental metal because they proclaim themselves as a 'fusion of genres', you could place them under 'Hybrid Metal' too.
Saturday sees Indonesia's Burgerkill and Jasad perform on the SL stage, this will be a huge moment for both bands, but also their native scene and we can guarantee that one person will be proud of them. That being the Indonesian prime minister Joko Widodo who is an avid-metal fan. Joining them will be Mancunian group Pist.
Sunday will see Ol Drake laying down the law with his debut album having departed his old band Evile, also joining him will be Welsh metallers Triaxis.
