BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR has announced a further two acts to itâ€™s already stellar 10th anniversary line up. Flying in from Scavagner, Norway, PURIFIED IN BLOOD will be making their first ever UK festival appearance on the SOPHIE LANCASTER stage. Recently signed to Spinefarm/Universal, with a new album set for release on June 7th, PIBâ€™s brand of brutal metal has earned them a reputation as a fierce live act in their native Norway, as well as across Europe and the US. Now theyâ€™re set to impress the UK metalheads, a task that vocalist TOMMY SVELA is eager to take onâ€
"We are extremely happy to rock the UK again. Playing BloodstockÂ´s 10th anniversary will be an absolute honour and we are truly looking forward to share the stage with some of our greatest influences. Ears will bleed and heads will bang!"
Joining them will be up and coming UK metallers MORDECAI. You may have heard their music on the backing track for the official BLOODSTOCK 2010 video trailer - an honour the band are proud to have had bestowed upon them. States vocalist/Guitarist DAN M HICKS:
â€œWeâ€™re really looking forward to playing Bloodstock 2010, the line-ups get better and better each year and the festival still maintains that grass roots feel! Weâ€™re so proud that our track â€œWithout Youâ€ from our Always Forever EP has been used as the theme tune for this yearâ€™s Bloodstock promo video and canâ€™t wait to play live on the SOPHIE stage on the Saturdayâ€¦itâ€™s a real honour for the Mordecai boys!â€
The BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR METAL FESTIVAL 2010 will take place at Catton Hall, Derbyshire from 13th â€“ 15th August.
