Thanks to Bloodstock’s very own Metal 2 The Masses initiative, two of the country’s finest new talents will be heading into Europe next summer to take on Wacken and Metaldays (formerly Metalcamp).
But first up, direct from Slovenia, we welcome NEGLIGENCE to the Newblood Stage. Having supported some of the biggest acts in metal, such as EXODUS, FORBIDDEN, HEATHEN, SADUS and DEATH ANGEL these guys offer up a mix of fast, aggressive, melodic metal, with a mixture of various genres such as thrash and death. Chosen by our good friends at Metaldays and following up from such acts as DOOMED and BREZNO we’re delighted to offer up the first of no less than 30+ breaking metal acts from the UK and abroad.
Further to this with the UK’s very own FURIOUS HORDE also laying waste to the stage at this year’s Metalcamp, the Midlands thrash outfit INCINERY will be looking to the shores of Slovenia to bring the noise!
“Incinery are honoured to be a part of Metaldays festival. Playing such festivals is a dream every band has, but to be able to actually do it is unbelievable. First and foremost, it's the next step for the band, a great opportunity for us to take our music to a whole new audience which is very exciting for us. Plus it's a chance to play along side some of the names that influence Incinery's music.
Our appearance at Bloodstock 2012 has helped to elevate Incinery's presence within the metal community to no-end. The festival gives unsigned acts amazing opportunities with events such as Metal to the Masses, as well as the main festival itself, allowing bands such as Incinery to showcase their material to wider audiences. The support we have received from the Bloodstock team has been immense both during and after the festival!”
Finally the Bloodline CD winners BULL-RIFF STAMPEDE will be stomping to Germany to take part in Wacken’s very own Metal Battle. Our German counterparts have graced former acts such as SNAKEBITE and ACHREN and this time round they’ll be in for another treat – its Kulling Time!!
“The Thrashing Machine is heading to Wacken, Germany! - It will be a complete honour to be flying the flag of the UK underground as we charge into ‘The Metal Battle’ at W.O.A 2013 . Our axes will hang and heads there will bang!! \m/ “ – BULL-RIFF STAMPEDE
M2TM 2013 will be announcing venues hosting the events in the UK and Europe over the comings weeks so if you’re in a Metal band and think you got what it takes then check the website for details or alternatively contact firstname.lastname@example.org
