The organisers of the United Kingdom's Bloodstock Open Air festival has announced that New Wave Of British Heavy Metal legends Angel Witch (now featuring Carcass/former Napalm Death guitarist, Bill Steer) and tongue in cheek thrash metal veterans Lawnmower Deth will be performing at next year's edition of the event, which will take place at Catton Hall in Derbyshire from August 12th - 14th. Also performing at the festival will be headliners, Immortal, as well as Triptykon, Morbid Angel, Therion and Rhapsody Of Fire.

Lawnmower Deth has posted the following message online regarding the confirmation: "The Mid Life Crisis tour continues (well... more of a casual jaunt around the fields of the Midlands if we are honest). We can now confirm that we will be playing at next year's Bloodstock festival and we are pretty damn chuffed about it too.

"After last week’s highly enjoyable slot at the Damnation Festival in Leeds, we are going to go all out to make Bloodstock one to remember!

"Will we do more crowd surf races?... Hell yes. Will Satan be on his trampoline?... I think so. Will we have more Killer cobs than ever before?... Sure we will. Can we get the biggest fish dance known to man going off in the Sophie tent?... That one my friends will be down to you! Snails and horns aloft?... Would be rude not to. Could Sumo rabbit be making another appearance?... Well, that one depends on his schedule of heavy drinking and fighting really. Can we think up some other stupid activity in time for Bloodstock?... I'm almost certain we will.

"Exciting init ?

"Oh.. and least I forget, don’t forget to come and see us in Derby in May, that will be a cracking evening as well!

"See you next year!"
