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!"

German goth-metallers Krypteria has checked in with the following tour update:
"When it became obvious that we would not be able to do our October tour throughout Germany due to [guitarist] Chris' condition, we immediately went to work on an adequate alternative so we would still be able to perform "My Fatal Kiss" live for our fans in 2009.
"Today we gladly announce Krypteria's return to the live circuit for this December.
"Even though we have not been able to set up a full-fledged headliner tour due to obvious logistical issues, we've received a little, no, a ton of help from a friend: Doro Pesch, the metal queen herself, and her booking agency Noisegate Productions just invited us to join them as special guest on their December tour - wow !
"The Hard&Heavy icon from Duesseldorf and Krypteria have some history together: In 2008 Doro, being one of the nicest people in all of Rock'n'Roll, had asked [singer] Ji-In to join her on her single 'Celebrate'; a couple of months later they performed the song - originally mixed by Krypteria's Chris - at Doro's 25th live anniversary event with All-Girl All-Star line-up.
"With Doro and the guys in her band always kicking major ass and us being determined to royally rock the crowds as well, this should shape up to be one heck of a live double whammy before Christmas."
