With a line-up boasting headline appearances from Children of Bodom, Fear Factory, Twisted Sister, plus a guest slot filled by Meshuggah, Bloodstock Open Air has now confirmed the gathering's final headline slot. The Friday night slot will be closed by Swedish Prog-metal superstars Opeth, who headlined back in 2008.

"We're pretty excited about coming back to play the Bloodstock festival with Opeth" states front man Mikael Akerfeldt "Myself and Axe will of course be double-fisting since we gonna cause some havoc with Bloodbath as well. We got asked to play since Heaven & Hell canceled and even though we obviously feel that we cannot possibly match their magic or fill the void, it will be like a personal tribute show to the memory of Ronnie Dio. So needless to say I'm honored to play, it will be intimidating and emotional I believe. We'll deliver as usual of course but yeah, I will be thinking about Dio, that's for sure."

The Bloodstock Open Air festival will take place from August 13th - 15th, 2010. Additional details on the festival can be found here.
