SOILWORK CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2008!

http://www.bloodstock.uk.com/news/uploads/soilwork.gif

The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that Swedish melodic death metallers SOILWORK have been confirmed for BOA 2008.

Along with fellow countrymen At The Gates, In Flames, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity and The Haunted, Soilwork have earned a formidable reputation for taking the aggressive sound of 1990?HuhHuh?s Swedish metal around the world and bravely forward into the new millennium. Forget the latest half-baked metalcore trend-hoppers - Soilwork did it first and did it better.

Formed in 1995 as Inferior Breed, the band switched to the name Soilwork (not a gardening reference but rather to working their way up from the ground!) the following year and cut their first demo HuhHuh?In Dreams We Fall Into The Eternal Lake?HuhHuh? in 1997. Their debut album HuhHuh?Steelbath Suicide?HuhHuh? was released in 1998 and caused a major stir within the underground. 2000?HuhHuh?s follow up HuhHuh?The Chainheart Machine?HuhHuh? won them a deal with Nuclear Blast records for whom they recorded their breakthrough album HuhHuh?A Predator's Portrait?HuhHuh? which catapulted the band to the forefront of the melodic death metal scene.

The band worked with Strapping Young Lad mainman Devin Townsend on the recording of their next album, 2002?HuhHuh?s HuhHuh?Natural Born Chaos?HuhHuh?; another notable success which saw them mount their first American tour. HuhHuh?Figure Number Five?HuhHuh? soon followed and the band supported it with their biggest bout of touring to date, including dates with many newer bands drawing influence from the Swedish sound including Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Unearth, As I Lay Dying and Bleeding Through. 2005?HuhHuh?s HuhHuh?Stabbing The Drama?HuhHuh? continued their phenomenal run as the band cracked the US independent charts with their most successful record and secured a slot on Ozzfest?HuhHuh?s second stage. The band?HuhHuh?s latest offering HuhHuh?Sworn To A Great Divide?HuhHuh? emerged in October and sees them striving as hard as ever to push modern metal to the next level.

ELUVEITIE CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2008!

http://www.bloodstock.uk.com/news/uploads/Eluveitie-metal-Band.1-gif.gif

The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that Swiss death/folk metallers ELUVEITIE have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Airs 2008.

The band were formed by Chrigel Glanzmann in 2002 as a studio-project and recorded their first EP HuhHuh?V????n?HuhHuh? the following year. In 2004, Eluveitie signed to Dutch label Fear Dark Records who issued a re-mastered and partly re-recorded version of HuhHuh?V????n?HuhHuh?, which the band promoted through gigs with outfits such as Cruachan, Korpiklaani and Skyforger. In late 2005, they entered the studio to lay down their first full-length album HuhHuh?Spirit?HuhHuh?, also for Fear Dark Records. Released in 2006, the album represented a big step forward for the band and helped them to land a deal with Nuclear Blast records for the release of their next album HuhHuh?Slania?HuhHuh? which is expected on February 15th, 2008.

Blending the atmospheres and themes of Pagan metal with modern melodic death metal, Eluveitie look set to take their place among the pantheon of Pagan metal?HuhHuh?s elite.

OPETH CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2008!

http://www.bloodstock.uk.com/news/uploads/opeth-Image-2.gif


The Bloodstock team are delighted to announce that Swedish progressive death metal maestros OPETH have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2008.

Lead by vocalist/guitarist Mikael Huh??kerfeldt, Opeth have become synonymous with fearless experimentation, memorable song writing and stellar musicianship which has seen them rise from the Scandinavian underground to become one of the most unique rock/metal bands of the last decade.

Opeth were formed in Stockholm in 1990 and spent several years developing their sound and solidifying a line-up before releasing their debut album HuhHuh?Orchid?HuhHuh? on Candlelight Records in 1995. HuhHuh?Morningrise?HuhHuh? followed in HuhHuh??96 along with their first major tour supporting Cradle Of Filth. 1998's concept album HuhHuh?My Arms, Your Hearse?HuhHuh? featured slightly more compact songs and a darker tone, but it was with 1999?HuhHuh?s HuhHuh?Still Life?HuhHuh? for their new label Peaceville that they began making waves with the mainstream metal media. Moving to Music For Nations in 2001 for the release of HuhHuh?Blackwater Park?HuhHuh? finally signalled their critical and commercial breakthrough and the album is still regarded by many observers as a landmark in their career.

Never a band to rest on their laurels, Opeth recorded their next two albums simultaneously. HuhHuh?Deliverance?HuhHuh? HuhHuh?? released in 2002 HuhHuh?? cracked the Billboard Top 100 album chart and further extended the band?HuhHuh?s exploration of and experimentation with their signature progressive death metal sound. HuhHuh?Damnation?HuhHuh? HuhHuh?? released in 2003 HuhHuh?? abandoned death metal in favour of a traditional 1970?HuhHuh?s progressive rock feel.

Their most recent album, 2005?HuhHuh?s HuhHuh?Ghost Reveries?HuhHuh?, saw the band combine elements from many of their previous works and again met with widespread critical acclaim.

The band have just issued a live album entitled HuhHuh?The Roundhouse Tapes?HuhHuh? and have been announced as support for Dream Theater on their 2008 North American tour.

Opeth?HuhHuh?s performance at Bloodstock Open Air Metal Festival promises to be an unforgettable highlight of the weekend.

EVILE CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2008!

http://www.bloodstock.uk.com/news/uploads/evile-band.gif

The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that rising British thrashers EVILE have been added to the bill for BOA 2008.

Hailing from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, Evile are at the forefront of a grassroots thrash metal revival currently sweeping the UK underground. Influenced by the likes of Metallica, Slayer, Sepultura, Exodus and Annihilator amongst others, Evile are taking the sound of classic thrash to a new generation. No politics, no post-modernism, just good old-fashioned neck-snapping riffs.

Despite their tender years, the band have already issued two self-financed EPs, gigged extensively around the UK and beyond, and in October 2006 signed with Earache Records for the release of their debut album HuhHuh?Enter The Grave?HuhHuh?. Produced by Flemming Rasmussen - the man behind the recording of Metallica?HuhHuh?s HuhHuh?Ride The Lightning?HuhHuh? and HuhHuh?Master Of Puppets?HuhHuh? albums - HuhHuh?Enter The Grave?HuhHuh? has earned a string of rave reviews including glowing praise from Terrorizer, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer and Rocksound. The band have also picked up support slots with major names such as Exodus and Machine Head and have a hectic live schedule lined up for the immediate future.

Despite being un-signed at the time, Evile were hand-picked to headline the second stage of BOA 2006 and their return to the festival promises to be a thrash attack to remember.

PRIMAL FEAR CONFIRMED FOR BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2008!

The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that Germany?HuhHuh?s true metal powerhouse PRIMAL FEAR have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2008.

The metal commandos are all fired up on their stunning new album 'New Religion' which has already taken its place in the band?HuhHuh?s outstanding catalogue of metal masterpieces and is their highest charting release since HuhHuh?Black Sun?HuhHuh? in 2002. Primal Fear have a long history with Bloodstock, having helped launch the festival with a bristling performance back in 2001, before returning in 2004 and again in 2006 for the indoor event. Each time they?HuhHuh?ve played Bloodstock, Primal Fear have given 110% in the name of metal and Bloodstock Open Air 2008 will be no exception.

The band were formed in 1997 by former Gamma Ray vocalist Ralf Scheepers and bassist/vocalist Mat Sinner and soon signed to Nuclear Blast Records, who issued their self-titled debut in 1998 to widespread critical acclaim. After touring with Running Wild and HammerFall, they released HuhHuh?Jaws Of Death?HuhHuh? which continued their rise through the ranks of the metal elite. Third album HuhHuh?Nuclear Fire?HuhHuh? was a major step up in terms of song writing, production and performance and saw the band mount a highly-successful co-headline tour with Children Of Bodom, visit the USA for the first time and release their first live DVD. By the time HuhHuh?Black Sun?HuhHuh? and later HuhHuh?Devil?HuhHuh?s Ground?HuhHuh? emerged, Primal Fear had become one of the most popular concert draws on the European scene and the ensuing world tours consolidated their incredible achievements and swelling fan base. 2005?HuhHuh?s HuhHuh?Seven Seals?HuhHuh? re-booted the band?HuhHuh?s signature sound, adding bombastic orchestration and a fresh approach to their craft which earned them album of the year in Metal Hammer Germany and a huge European tour with Helloween.

At the peak of their career, the band signed a new deal with Frontiers Records for the release of HuhHuh?New Religion?HuhHuh? which builds on the adventurous sound of HuhHuh?Seven Seals?HuhHuh? and includes a cameo from Epica vocalist Simone Simons on the track HuhHuh?Everytime It Rains?HuhHuh?. The band are already on tour in support of HuhHuh?New Religion?HuhHuh? and will trek throughout the USA, Europe, Japan and South America before finally mounting their assault on the Bloodstock faithful.

Bloodstock are very pleased to announce Finnish Death metallers SWALLOW THE SUN have been confirmed as the second band for the 2008 BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR UK METAL FESTIVAL !!!!

The bands latest album has had huge acclaim In Europe and the band are planning to bring their fantastic show to UK shores in 2008 at Bloodstock.

The most luminous death/doom-metal act of Finland, Swallow the Sun, got started in the turn of the millennium when the guitarist Juha Raivio collected a group of friends around him.

The first recording was well prepared during few years and now a rare collectors item, "Out of This Gloomy Light" was recorded in January 2003. This demo brought the first record deal with Firebox Records. Debut album, "The Morning Never Came" was released in November 2003 and brought Swallow the Sun to the knowledge of metal world. Inferno-magazine chose the band as the newcomer of the year and Kerrang! gave full 5 K's to the album and quoted it as "One of the doom metals finest moments to date!".

Swallow the Sun took hold of the live scene by touring clubs and festivals in Finland and abroad. Even though they spent many hours on the road, the work for next album was already on its way and the recordings for "Ghosts of Loss" started in February 2005. First single of the album, "Forgive Her...", went to Finnish Official Album Charts, positioning on fourth place and stayed there for six weeks. And more success came in following August when the album climbed to position eight and stayed weeks on the charts. Both these rare occasions in Finnish metal scene made the ground even firmer under Swallow the Sun's rocketing success, in the rain of overwhelming reviews.

Once again, after touring Finland and other countries, the band closed itself in September 2006 to an island next to Helsinki to record their coming album "Hope". "Atmosphere on the island truly gave change to focus deeply on the work and of course a nice place to host our guests", says Juha Raivio. Swallow the Sun had the privilege to have Jonas Renkse (Katatonia) and Tomi Joutsen (Amorphis) to appear as guest vocal on the album. The album has received high praises in all medias around the world and on 7th of February 2007 "Hope" was released and it jumped directly to position 3 on official Finnish album charts. In year 2007 Swallow the sun plays about 100 shows, including appearances on major metal festivals, three European tours and one in USA. The band have now been confirmed to play the Uks No 1 Metal Festival BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR in 2008 and are pleased to now be playing to their ever strong & growing UK fanbase, another UK coup for Bloodstock !!
