  FOUR MORE BANDS ADDED TO BLOODSTOCK 2018 BILL
30th October 2017



bloodstock

Four more great bands have been added to the Bloodstock 2018 bill, at the same time as 2018 Rock Society tickets have been made available in the ticket store.

Watain will bring their Black Metal ritual to headline Sunday's Sophie Lancaster stage in a UK festival exclusive. Frontman Erik Danielsson tells us:

"Our last performance at Bloodstock in 2012 was also the final date on the 'Lawless Darkness' tour. The sun was setting while we played and the crowd was getting louder and wilder the darker it became. A very charged atmosphere.

"Eager now to return and see what the eventful years that have passed and the force accumulated since then has done to both us and the Bloodstock crowd. Furthermore, England is of course sacred ground when it comes to Metal in general, so when performing there, the stakes are always high.

"May all those that doubt be impaled upon them."

Look out for Watain's long awaited sixth studio album which is released on 5th January 2018.

German Power Metallers Orden Ogan have also landed a Ronnie James Dio main stage slot on Saturday. The band released 'Gunmen', their fifth studio album, this summer via AFM Records and you can check out the video for 'Gunman' here and get a taster of what’s in store for their set in 2018.



Atlanta aggrotech outfit, Combichrist also join the main stage bill for an early slot on Friday. The band have been working on new music after the release of their eighth studio album, 'This Is Where Death Begins', which landed in 2016.

Also landing an early main stage slot on Friday are British death/grind four-piece Memoriam. Combining ex-members of Bolt Thrower and Benediction, Memoriam's pedigree is high. The band of scene veterans are hard at work on the follow up to their debut, 'For The Fallen', released via Nuclear Blast earlier this year. Check out 'Reduced To Zero' taken from that opus here.



Bloodstock's Rock Society tickets become available in the store on Halloween morning, 31st October at 9.00am. The Rock Society is effectively the festival's Members Club, offering not only a 10% discount on your weekend ticket (on top of the early bird discount if you purchase the Rock Society membership + ticket bundle option), but all sorts of other cool benefits like priority signing tent access, a Rock Society laminate, access to the VIP Serpents Lair bar, a tour of the backstage and production areas to see behind the scenes, the chance to meet with the festival organisers, a dedicated hangout area in the Rock Society tent on site, a Rock Society Facebook community where you can make friends and get to know your fellow RockSoc members and plenty more besides.

Full details can be found right here. Memberships are priced at £75, limited to 300 and sell out almost immediately, so don't delay if you want to pick one up.

Also now in the store are tickets for Bloodstock's new Vanaheim campervan field. Due to increasing demand each year, some site adjustments have been made to allow for more pitches. As such, the new Vanaheim site is located across the road, directly adjacent to Serpents Lair VIP parking, allowing an increase in size to accommodate 240 campervans, as opposed to just 130.

Campervan pitches always sell through very rapidly but tickets for campervan pitches will remain at this year's price of £60.

With Friday night headliners Judas Priest, Saturday night headliners Gojira and Sunday headliners Nightwish already announced, along with Emperor, Devildriver and Nails, 2018 is shaping up to be another stellar year for Bloodstock.

The first wave of Serpents Lair VIP tickets are now sold out. The final allocation, the last batch of VIP deluxe packages and a limited amount of VIP upgrades priced at £145 (for those who've already bought early bird tickets) will then become available on 16th December at 9.00am in the ticket store.

Standard weekend tickets are currently available at early bird prices (just £125 for four days of Metal fun) so grab yours now at the ticket store right here.

Bloodstock will take place at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th to 12th August 2018.

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.
