BLOODSTOCK 2014 are excited to announce four more bands to the 2014 bill!
East Coast metal/hardcore legends, BIOHAZARD join the Ronnie James Dio stage line up. The band are hard at work on a brand new album due for release this year via Nuclear Blast Records. Band leader Billy Graziadei comments “We’ve watched some awesome Bloodstock line-ups over the past few years and we’re very psyched to be part of this one! See you in da pit!”
Check out the video for ‘Vengeance Is Mine’ from last album, ‘Reborn In Defiance’.
Fronted by current Nightwish vocalist, Floor Jansen, REVAMP also step up for a main stage slot. Floor successfully juggles her commitments to both bands and is taking REVAMP on the road across the US this Spring with Iced Earth and Sabaton. About the Bloodstock slot, Floor comments “REVAMP is thrilled to play at Bloodstock this summer! It’s a great festival with a strong metal heart in a metal-loving country for which we have nothing but great memories. We can’t wait to rock the British crowd again!”

Ground-breaking Israeli progressive metallers, ORPHANED LAND also join the bill. The band, who shortly embark on their first ever Australian tour, are noted for bringing together fans of differing religious backgrounds and were even the focus of a 2012 online petition by followers, nominating them for the Nobel Peace Prize. “I could never imagine in my wildest imagination that an Israeli band would be followed by thousands of Muslim fans from around the world”, commented frontman Kobi Farhi, but that is exactly what has happened. In Turkey (the only Muslim country where they are permitted to play), ORPHANED LAND play huge arenas and fans travel huge distances from countries like Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan to see the band play. ORPHANED LAND truly embody the brotherhood of the heavy metal genre and BLOODSTOCK is proud to welcome them to Catton Park. The band’s album, ‘All Is One’ is available now. Check out their website at http://www.orphaned-land.com.
Belgian death metal outfit, ABORTED also pick up an early main stage slot at Catton Park. The band have just entered the studio to record new album, ‘The Necrotic Manifesto’ which is due for release this summer via Century Media. This April the band head over to tour North America with Kataklysm, before returning to Europe for the summer festivals. Check out all the latest info on the band, including updates from the studio, over at their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/
