Four more bands have been announced for Bloodstock 2018 and tickets are moving faster than ever for this year with Serpent's Lair VIP tickets now sold out completely.

Sunday's special guest on the Ronnie James Dio main stage will be At The Gates. The Swedish melodeath overlords are hard at work on the follow up album to 2014s 'At War With Reality' which is set for release on 18th May via Century Media. Check out their latest studio report right here.

Cruising into a Saturday night special guest slot on the Sophie stage are seminal New Orleans thrash pioneers, Exhorder. Arguably the creators of the original sound that Pantera honed and took to the masses, when Bloodstock learned the band had reformed, they made it their mission to bring them to Derbyshire. Check out their classic 1990 debut studio album, 'Slaughter In The Vatican' right here:

Las Vegas sludge Metal beasts, Weight Of The Tide have landed a Sophie stage slot. The band released second album, 'All Told', via Undergroove Records late last year. Check out a taster of that release via the video for 'The Architect' right here:

California Death Metal outfit Sangre also join the Sophie stage bill. Get a taster of Sangre with 'Blossom' right here:

If you haven't grabbed your ticket yet and are a bit stretched post-Christmas, Bloodstok's payment plan helps ease the 'lump sum' shock of paying for your ticket by breaking it into five smaller, more manageable amounts. Sign up in the ticket store any time before 28th Feb for an initial deposit of £36.00. Thereafter, four additional instalments of £29.00 will debit your bank account on 3rd April, 1st May, 1st June and 2nd July respectively. Find out full details and sign up right here.

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, Watain, Combichrist, Nails, Orden Ogan and Memoriam so far, 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.
