So many of you are thinking what is going on behind the doors at Bloodstock, well in all honesty, a lot.
Here is a low down since late March till now (13th June)
In late March Bloodstock announced the next lot of ready-to-go bands who will be pummeling the very foundations of the New Blood stage this year (sponsored by the one and only Hobgoblin). Handpicked from applications made by a plethora bands reaching into the far hundreds, these following bands will join up with their compatriots who have battled their way through in the forthcoming Metal 2 The Masses competition, a truly ferocious friendly fight (yeah right!).
The latest eight bands to be added to this year come in the form of Essex Thrashers Rezinwolf, London Thrashers Kremated (whose motto is Thrash Ain't Dead; they are right), Worcestershire mob Fury and the following bands: Prosperina, Mask of Judas, The Infernal Sea, Bound By Exile and XII Boar. What else could you ask for? Bloodstock hears you!
Bloodstock then hosted an Easter egg hunt that involved website viewers' to search all over the site to find the said items, this allowed them to be entered in to win Bloodstock tickets, it was an egg-celent time. Winners were Kate Senter, Nick Stevens and Amy Lawrence respectively.
As time progressed into Mid April, more bands were announced to let rip at Bloodstock, the following bands are confirmed to play: Gama Bomb, Slayer, Beholder, Last In line, Grifter, Cypher 16, Betraeus and The Way Of Purity.
Bloodstock once again is partnering up with the Teenage Cancer Trust, at the 2012 edition £4,775 was raised, so come on fellow metalheads, let's smash that £5,000 barrier!!!!!!
Further on into May and French Groove masters Gojira were announced to play Bloodstock, this comes before their well-earned awarding of the Metal Hammer Golden God Award ‘Best Live Band’ category. It was a tough category too!
Knocking on June and Bloodstock ser
