Bloodstock have announced four more additions to their August 2018 line-up including the “Queen of Rock & Metal” Doro Pesch.
German metal legend, Doro will be the Friday night Sophie Lancaster stage headliner! With a career spanning over 30 years and 17 studio albums under her belt (including 4 with Warlock), Doro’s current label Nuclear Blast recently celebrated her 30 year anniversary with a 3 DVD box set, ‘Strong & Proud’; a great place to start if you’re not clued up on the Metal Queen.
WWE wrestling star Chris Jericho’s band, Fozzy join Sunday’s Ronnie James Dio main stage line-up. Currently rampaging across Europe, the Century Media outfit dropped their seventh album ‘Judas’ last month and have racked up more than 10 million views of the title track’s video.
Swedish death metal outfit, Bloodbath will lay waste to the main stage on Friday. Guitarist Anders Nyström says: “After eight years, our time has come to put the BLOOD back in BLOODSTOCK!”
Landing a Saturday spot on the main stage are Greek symphonic death metal squad, Septicflesh. First formed back in 1990, the pioneers unveiled their tenth record, ‘Codex Omega’ in September.
These new additions join Friday night headliners, Judas Priest, Saturday night headliners, Gojira and Sunday headliners, Nightwish along with Emperor, DevilDriver, Combichrist, Watain, Orden Ogan, Nails and Memoriam, for Bloodstock 2018.
Bloodstock will be held at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 9th – 12th August 2018.
