  EMPEROR, DEVILDRIVER AND NAILS ADDED TO BLOODSTOCK 2018 BILL
10th October 2017



bloodstock

Bloodstock 2018 now has three tremendous additions to the bill with Emperor, Devildriver and Nails all playing at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th to 12th August 2018.

Emperor join Friday's bill in the Ronnie James Dio main stage special guest slot in a UK exclusive appearance and frontman Ihsahn tells us that they'll be performing a special set based around one of their classic albums.

"We're finally bringing the 20th Anniversary show for 'Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk' to the UK. We'll be performing the album in its entirety and look forward to celebrating with everyone at Bloodstock."

Check out a stream of the atmospheric opus here and get excited for next August.



Californian circle pit kings Devildriver step into a main stage slot on Sunday and frontman Dez Fafara tells us:

"Devildriver is playing Bloodstock in 2018 and we couldn't be more fucking ready to bring the heavy and get the whole festival moving!

"We are thankful for the opportunity and can't wait to see everyone there! Get ready to get the fuck in the pit!"

Check out the band doing what they do best in the video for the title track of their current studio album, 'Trust No One'.



Hotly-tipped, super brutal three-piece, Nails land a Ronnie James Dio main stage slot on Sunday in another UK exclusive show. Frontman Todd Jones tells us:

"I've been following Bloodstock and looking at their advertisements online for the past few years, admiring how great a job the festival does having a great mix of underground bands and some of Metal' biggest and finest. We're proud to finally say we're part of what Bloodstock is doing to fight the good fight! We'll see all you motherfuckers at Bloodstock!"

If you're not familiar with Nails, check out the video for 'You Will Never Be One Of Us' right here.

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.
