Two More Bands Confirmed For Bloodstock 2012

Finnish pagan metal outfit Moonsorrow and German power metal group Freedom Call have been confrmed as the latest two bands to take part in this years edition of the British metal festival, Bloodstock Open Air, which will take place at Catton Hall in Walton On Trent, Derbyshire from August 10th-12th.

Speaking on the confirmation, Moonsorrow stated: "We are truly excited to take part in Bloodstock Festival 2012. It's been way too long since we played on the British soil in 2008 and we know that lately there has been a huge demand for Moonsorrow to play in the UK. So, all our loyal fans in the UK, we want to see a massive crowd of insane berserks during our set. Don't let us down because we promise we don't let you down, cheers!"

Crowbar And More Added To Bloodstock

With a plethora of metal talent already on offer - including Alice Cooper, Behemoth, Dimmu Borgir, Testament, Hatebreed and loads more - Bloodstock Open Air has another addition to it’s main stage, in the form of New Orleans sludge-monsters Crowbar. The organizers of the festival commented:

"The epitome of heavy, Kirk Windstein and co have been showing the world that speed isn’t everything since their debut 'Obedience Thru Suffering' stunned the metal world in 1991 with its downtuned, slow-paced yet punishingly heavy sound. With nine studio albums under their very large belts, Crowbar have mastered the art of the riff, continually delivering irresistible sludgey metal via a sound uniquely their own. With mammoth sludgey slabs such as 'I Despise,' 'All I Had (I Gave),' 'Time He’s Nothing,' 'Like Broken Glass,' 'Nothing' and many more, the Ronnie James Dio Stage will be put to the test at Crowbar’s only UK festival of 2012.

"Over on the Sophie stage, additions come in the form of homegrown extreme symphonic metallers and Metal 2 The Masses winners Saturnian, fellow countrymen and Melo-death thrashers Bloodshot Dawn, as well as Finnish melodic death metallers Re-Armed."

Tickets and more information on the festival can be found at the official Bloodstock website. The currently announced lineup is as follows: More...

Evile Delivers New Album To Fan

British thrashers Evile have hand-delivering their new album "Five Serpent's Teeth" to one lucky fan. The band members set out on a road trip from their home in Huddersfield to Stockton-On-Tees to personally deliver the new album to Evile mega-fan Tony Dobson, following which the group went even further by inviting another fan along for a special inside look at an Evile band rehearsal.

Guitarist Ol Drake comments:

"Stopped off at Tony Dobson's house in Stockton-on-Tees to hand deliver the new album, Five Serpent's Teeth. He won a pre-order competition to have the last album Infected Nations delivered to him but Mike couldn't make it at the time. We promised him we'd return for us all to deliver the next one. Sat and drank some beers and scotch eggs while he listened to it and gave his honest and positive opinion. Thanks for having us in your home Tony!

"Then came back to Huddersfield to start another rehearsal and invited a local fan in called Tom. He'd asked me at a show in Manchester a while ago if he could come along to a rehearsal, so what better time than the day after his birthday (where he apparently sky-dived). Hope you like the album mate, and hope we didn't deafen your Mum too much."

Check out a photo of Evile delivering the new album to the lucky fan at this location.

Evile Speaks About New Album

Metal Hammer recently interviewed U.K. thrashers Evile about forthcoming release "Five Serpents Teeth," which is scheduled for release this September through Earache Records.

When asked whether the new LP will take the band to a new level, Drummer Ben Carter stated "We’re all really proud of it – on the other albums there have always been little niggles and cases of ‘Should we have done this, could we have done that?’, but we were so much more prepared this time around, and the feeling of the band was so positive going into the studio that it made everything easy. That in turn has led to something that far surpasses anything we thought this band could achieve. That’s why we’ve all got these massive cheesy grins on our faces! It’s the pinnacle of what we’ve achieved.”

Carter was also asked whether the new LP will affect the band's relationship with the "thrash revival" to which he replied: "“Some people are gonna hate us for it, we know that, but we don’t care. We write stuff for us, and we want to go forwards. What’s the point I writing the same album five times? That doesn’t prolong your career at all.”
