Due to health issues with Behemoth frontman Adam "Nergal" Darski, the Polish blackened death metal outfit have been forced to cancel all further appearances this year, including this week's Bloodstock Open Air festival in England. Luckily for festival goers, British doom metal legends Cathedral have agreed to step in, making this their first appearance at Bloodstock.

Behemoth aren't the only band to pull out of this year's edition of the festival, October File has also been forced to cancel their appearance too, as a result of frontman Ben Hollyer exacerbating his current stomach injury at their recent Sonisphere festival set. In their place will be black metal band Winterfylleth.

Explains October File frontman Ben: "Unfortunately I have had to pull out of performing at BOA this year and our first year too! I am absolutely gutted that we can't be there. A recent injury involving my abdominal muscles tearing down the middle has made performing not possible. Have a good BOA!!"

Winterfylleth singer/guitarist Chris Naughton adds: "Winterfylleth are truly humbled to be asked to play at one of the finest metal festivals going on within our fair shores. It is a privilege for us as existing fans of the festival to now be considered amongst some of the great bands that are playing at the festival this year. We are looking forward to standing alongside acts like Gorgoroth, Behemoth and many others, bringing our brand of English inspired Black Metal to such a discerning and committed festival following. We look forward to seeing you there. Hail Bloodstock."
