January might be cold, but the latest Bloodstock announcement is sure to bring the ultimate chills.
Here's the lowdown on the next three bands to lock horns with the Catton Park holidaymakers (you know festival goers?)
The Metal Allegiance project is set to stamp their authority in unrelenting fashion, with the already-confirmed line-up of Testament’s Alex Skolnick, Death Angel’s Mark Osegueda, Anthrax’s Scott Ian & Charlie Benante, Russell Allen from Symphony X, Gary Holt from Slayer & Exodus, Mike Portnoy of Twisted Sister / numerous other projects and Metal Allegiance leader, Mark Menghi, who else will be ready to join this armada of metal?
Mike Portnoy couldn't keep his excitement at the project's UK debut performance remarking that Bloodstock is "the perfect audience to share this brotherhood of metal with".
Joining-hand-in-hand with them are Atlanta rap metal pioneers Stuck Mojo, since their welcomed comeback in 2014 the lads celebrate the 20th anniversary of their second album 'Pigawalk'. Check out the video here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOL6htxn-tc. The band have been working on a new album with producer Andy Sneap.
Like the musketeers, they come in three. Joining these two bands are New Orleans metal gods Goatwhore who shall be assimilating the headline slot on the Sophie Lancaster stage on the Friday. With their new album being materialized and destined for a later release date, why not for the moment check out the video for ‘Bearing Teeth For Revolt’, shot at NOLA’s infamous ‘House of Shock’ - https://youtu.be/tJkju9-919s.
