Winterfylleth announced for Bloodstock 2017

By on 21 March 2017

Anthemic black metallers WINTERFYLLETH join the main stage fray. Their fifth album ‘The Dark Hereafter’ was released last October by Candlelight Records/Spinefarm.

We’re also excited to reveal a handful of bands for the Sophie Lancaster stage. DENDERA bring their classic metal to BLOODSTOCK for a Friday slot. The band have their third studio album set for release this year, so expect new material.

Saturday sees doomsters KROH join the Sophie bill. KROH is the brainchild of Paul Kenney, founder member of both Mistress and Fukpig.

Also landing a Saturday slot are ABHORRENT DECIMATION, whose ‘Miasmic Mutation’ album was lauded by Metal Hammer as “one of 2015’s must-have death metal records”.

Bagging a Sunday slot are British experimental metal squad, BOSSK. The band built their name via a series of EPs and touring with the likes of Cult Of Luna, Textures, and Baroness, and are now signed to Deathwish Inc. Their
debut studio album ‘Audio Noir’ was released last year.

We also welcome doompop outfit, COURTESANS to the Sunday bill. The band say:

“To perform at BLOODSTOCK is incredible exciting. It’s a huge honour to play the Sophie Lancaster Stage, her legacy is at the heart of our ethics. We’re advocates of equality and have a zero tolerance to any form of prejudice. We hope to raise a few eyebrows and stir some shit up!”

Their new EP ‘Better Safe Than Sober’ comes out this month.

Rounding out Sunday’s additions are Brit crew, WRETCHED SOUL. Described by Zero Tolerance as “refreshingly difficult to categorise”, Terrorizer had a go and called them, “one of the UK’s most promising underground Thrash
bands.” WRETCHED SOUL’s savage second album ‘The Ghost Road’ was released in December through UKEM Records.

Our first phase of BLOODSTOCK club nights start on 7th April! More will be added for June/July, so don’t despair if your local rock club isn’t listed yet.
