Belphegor And Hell Confirmed For Bloodstock Open Air 2013

The Bloodstock 2013 festival will take place August 8th - 11, with full details available at this location. The organizers of the fest have issued the following announcement about confirming two new bands:

"We are thrilled to announce the addition of occult metal overlords, Hell and Austrian death/black metallers, Belphegor to the 2013 bill. Belphegor are celebrating their 20 year anniversary this year and readying the release of their tenth studio album this summer, via Nuclear Blast. Take a peek at what’s been going on in the studio video below, and Bloodstock 2013 will be the first place you can hear some new material live."

Belphegor’s Helmuth states: “To bomb the UK is always a pleasure for Belphegor. We will celebrate Diabolical Death Musick, and visualize it with a special 20 year anniversary show, full of bones, flesh and blood! At the start of August, our new as-yet-untitled album will be released. The troupe can’t wait to premiere two of these tracks at Bloodstock. An honour - this horror!”

Meanwhile Hell, which also has an album scheduled for release later this year via Nuclear Blast, is looking forward to the BOA weekend. Hell's axeman Andy Sneap comments:

“We are thrilled to announce HELL have been added to the Saturday main stage bill at Bloodstock. HELL had such a great time at BOA in 2011, opening the main stage on the Sunday, so it's an honour to be asked back, especially with the bill being such a strong line up. It'll be a lot of fun catching up with some old friends and playing a longer set for the Bloodstock masses, this time at a slightly more reasonable hour.”
