So as Christmas comes and goes and the new year beckons, we decided to summarize Bloodstock's December confirmed bands and damn the selection is enough to make you drool.
Headlining the Friday is sunny Florida's Trivium, the Groove / Metalcore ensemble will only be playing in the UK this time this year, yes an exclusive performance. Moreover this will be the first time the band has played at Bloodstock so the crowd reception will be interesting. Additionally the band has a new album in the words which will be released via Roadrunner Records.
Also performing again at Bloodstock is Swedish Power Metal horde Sabaton of whom have performed beforehand, furthermore they will be playing a one off show at The Kentish Town Forum in London on the 12th January alongside Delain (who we have our bets on to also play Bloodstock given the headliner Within Temptation are performing too, maybe Epica also? Who knows) and Battle Beast.
The third announcement comes in the form of Agalloch, who will be playing on the Sunday and will certainly bring something unique to the masses.
Fourth on the list is cult Norwegian group Enslaved and with their forthcoming album due next March, festival goers should be prepared to mosh like hell. Having already played way back in 2009, it will be a warm-welcome from the Bloodstock faithful.
Yet another American band is confirmed to perform, this is in the shape of the hardcore crew known as Pro-Pain who will be raining supreme over the RJD stage. With fourteen albums for them to peer over and arrange a set-list, this will be an interesting performance to say the least.
Joining them from the Nordics is Finnish sextet Korpiklaani who will bring along their barmy and bouncy, jiggling-wiggling folk metal. This will be a UK exclusive performance for them and comes on the back end of a successful tour with Swedish horde Sabaton and fellow Faroese Folk Metallers TÝR.
From now until the 15th December, early bird tickets with camping will continue to be available for purchase - £120 currently (plus booking fee) available here
