German thrash originators Kreator gave headliners Ghost a proper run for their money on the main stage on Saturday at Bloodstock but the Swedish spookmeisters proved more than worthy headliners.

You can see what happened when Kreator played right here.

Eccentric ecclesiastical headliners Ghost took to the stage after the published time, preparing the waiting congregation with calming choral music before beginning the service with the uptempo 'Square Hammer', which showcased the striking visuals.

It's all about the show with Ghost, and there was plenty of interplay between Nameless Ghoul and Nameless Ghoul, while the Nameless Ghouls on the rhythm section provided a solid back up to Papa Emeritus II.

There was more tropes than you could shake an incense dispenser over, including a troupe of nuns ministering communion to the crowd during 'Body And Blood', yet as the cliches are an integral part of the set they are greeted with affection - this show just works, it's a great bit of entertainment.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
