BATTLELORE CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2009!

The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that symphonic metallers BATTLELORE have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2009.

Battlelore were formed in Lappeenranta, Finland in 1999 by guitarist Jyri Vahvanen and bassist Miika Kokkola. The band’s style is an eclectic hybrid of death, power and folk metal influences, with lyrics and imagery inspired by Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.

After issuing several demos, the band signed with Napalm Records who issued their debut album …Where the Shadows Lie in 2002 to overwhelmingly positive reviews. The follow-up Sword’s Song appeared in 2003 to further success and saw the band embark on their first European tour. Following the 2004 release of the in-concert DVD The Journey, Tomi Mykkänen replaced Patrik Mennander as lead vocalist and the band released their third album Third Age of the Sun in 2005. The album represented a great leap forward musically and breached the top 40 album chart in the band’s home country. 2007’s Evernight presented a darker, more epic approach which matured further on their most recent release, 2008’s The Last Alliance, the ultimate expression of the bombastic Battlelore trademark sound.

GWAR CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2009!


The Bloodstock team are humbled beyond words to announce that Scumdogs of the Universe GWAR have been added to the bill for Bloodstock open Air 2009.

GWAR were formed in the US in 1985 and have become best known for their over the top costumes and outrageous stage antics. Although influenced by both punk and thrash, the band’s sound has shifted and evolved throughout their career as the demands of their lyrical themes and stage performances have changed. Their debut album Hell-O was released in 1988 and featured the core line-up of Oderus Urungus (lead vocals), Flattus Maximus (lead guitar), Balsac the Jaws of Death (rhythm guitar) and Beefcake the Mighty (bass guitar), characters which remain in the band today, although their costumes are not necessarily worn by the same musicians!

GWAR have issued many further albums over the years, some varying greatly in style from others, but each characterised by the band’s unique and anarchic sense of theatre and boasting titles such as America Must Be Destroyed, This Toilet Earth and We Kill Everything. Targeting celebrities and other public figures with their black comedy whilst spraying their audiences with gallons of fake bodily fluids, a GWAR gig is a performance quite unlike any other. Waterproofs and wellies are recommended.

The band are allegedly working on a new album tentatively titled Lust In Space.

The mighty Oderus would like us to pass on the following message

“Greetings people of Earth, it is I, ODERUS URUNGUS, lead singer of the BLOODIEST band in metal history, the mighty GWAR! And it is with a sense of toe-curling delight and impending DOOM that I announce the addition of the GWAR to the mammoth BLOODSTOCK Open Air Metal Festival to be held this summer in England. Thats right, from the frozen depths of Antarctica, GWAR brings what BLOODSTOCK needs...BLOOD! Prepare yourself for the most colossal, disgusting, and completely politically incorrect show in metal history! We'll bring the swords, you bring the bodies, and together we shall turn the slam-pit into a seething mass of DEATH not seen in Europe since the fall of Berlin! GWAR is playing BLOODSTOCK...and may the Pope choke on it!”

one thing that kind of sucks about this festival is a lot of the main stage bands only get 40 minutes set, judging by last year's set times. They should change it around and give most bands at least an hour like Wacken.

CARCASS AND ARCH ENEMY CO-HEADLINER AND UK EXCLUSIVE SHOWS CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2009!

The Bloodstock team are delighted to announce that death metal giants CARCASS and ARCH ENEMY have been added to the bill for BOA 2009. The pair will co-headline one day of the festival and the event will mark the ONLY UK shows of 2009 for both bands!

The origins of Carcass go right back to 1985 when guitarist Bill Steer and drummer Ken Owen formed their first band together, Disattack. Bassist Jeff Walker joined in 1986 and the band soon changed their name to Carcass, issuing the legendary Flesh Ripping Sonic Torment demo the following year. The band then came to the attention of UK indie label Earache who issued their debut album Reek Of Putrefaction in 1988. Although mired by muddy production, the album’s extreme sound and shocking artwork helped make it something of an overnight sensation and generated the sort of publicity which set the band on their way to becoming extreme metal legends.

The band’s second album Symphonies Of Sickness, released in 1989, saw their sound begin to shift from grindcore to death metal, a trend which continued on 1991’s Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious and which concluded with the much slicker and more straightforward Heartwork, released in 1993. By this time, Carcass had become well-established as a twin-guitar band with Swedish axeman Michael Amott having joined their ranks in 1990. In 1994, the band signed with Columbia Records, a major deal which should have allowed them to break out of the underground. Instead, Amott’s departure following Heartwork, a lack of focus within the band and constant label interference culminating in a withdrawal of their support led the band to split up before their final album - 1996’s Swansong - was even released.

The band eventually reformed in 2007 with drummer Daniel Erlandsson replacing Ken Owen whose illness prevented him from taking part. In the years since their original demise, Carcass’ influence has continued to grow making their reunion shows some of the most hotly anticipated in recent times.
ARCH ENEMY
In 1996, Michael Amott - now ex-Carcass - formed the melodic death metal band Arch Enemy, who released their debut full-length Black Earth later the same year. Although intended as a one-off project, the album’s success encouraged Amott to make Arch Enemy full time, and they returned with the Stigmata album in 1998. Following 1999’s Burning Bridges, frontman Johan Liiva left to be replaced by Angela Gossow and Arch Enemy found even greater success aided by the wave of media interest generated by extreme metal’s most high-profile female vocalist.

Wages Of Sin (2001), Anthems Of Rebellion (2003), Doomsday Machine (2005) and Rise Of The Tyrant (2007) have all seen Arch Enemy continue to expand their fan base, the latter being the band’s highest charting album to date. They are currently working on an album of re-recorded songs from the pre-Gossow era.

For one night only, two of death metal’s biggest names are set to bring mayhem to Bloodstock in what will surely go down in festival history as a truly unforgettable spectacle.

CARCASS vs. ARCH ENEMY – To The Death! - BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2009.

Line up so far: AMON AMARTH, APOCALYPTICA, ARCH ENEMY, BATTLELORE, CANDLEMASS, CARCASS, DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER, ENSLAVED, GWAR, KATATONIA, MILLION DOLLAR RELOAD, MUNICIPAL WASTE, SATYRICON, SAXON, TURISAS, THE HAUNTED, SABATON, WINTERSUN.
