Saracen lead the final batch of British bands gearing up for this years Bloodstock festival. Little is probably known about Saracen other than they released 2 albums in the early 80's, their debut being the classic Heroes Saints and Fools which at the time of its release outsold many leading Metal bands LP's here in the Midlands including Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast! Their new CD Red Sky released just a couple of months ago sees the band reforming and producing another classic slab of British Rock, with Bloodstock 2003 being their first show in over 18 years.
Saracen are set to play a storming 45 minute set mid afternoon on Saturday 30th August.
The other bands recently confirmed for Bloodstock 03 are:
SNATCH - "Should send Garbage fans running for cover!" Kerrang
5TH MAN DOWN - "Pearl Jam meets Tool on UK soil - Killer!" Bloodstock!
ILLUMINATUS - "Heavy, yet melodic with a dark edge" Notts Rocks
NINEDENINE - "The British are on the march - and you are about to be assaulted" Metal Hammer
CRUEL HUMANITY - "6th best unsigned band in 2002" Terrorizer
BUMSNOGGER - "Sounds that could kill Hippo's in Africa!" Notts Rocks
