It's only twenty-one weeks until the Metal hoardes invade Catton Park's hallowed ground for Bloodstock 2018 and this year's event is expected to be sold out once again and there are more additions to what was already a stellar bill today.

Death Metal icons Cannibal Corpse are Saturday's special guests on the Ronnie James Dio main stage. Check out the Tampa, FL-based band's horror flick video for'‘Code Of The Slashers' taken from current album, 'Red Before Black', and warm up those necks for August.

If you're a fan of bands like Lamb Of God and Machine Head, don't miss Friday's Sophie Lancaster stage special guests, Bleed From Within. The hotly tipped Scottish Metal crew will no doubt be sharing a few choice cuts from their upcoming fourth studio album, 'Era', set for release this April via Century Media. Wrap your ears around first single, 'Alive'.

Epic doom brotherhood, Godthrymn, featuring ex-members of Vallenfyre, My Dying Bride, Anathema, Solstice and Malediction also join the Sophie stage bill on Friday, while Underside have landed a slot on Sunday's Sophie stage, carring on the Bloodstock tradition of giving bands from far-flung places the opportunity to play in front of a big crowd. Underside come all the way from Nepal.

Tickets for Britain's top Metal event are available right here but selling fast.

With Friday night headliners Judas Priest, Saturday night headliners Gojira and Sunday headliners Nightwish already announced, along with Doro, Emperor, Devildriver, Orphaned Land, Venom Inc, Mr Big, Watain, Combichrist, Nails, Orden Ogan and Memoriam so far, plus many more, 2018 is shaping up to be another stellar year for Bloodstock.

Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th-12th August 2018. Get additional information right here.
