With a reputation for introducing new bands to the world of Metal, BLOODSTOCK is also the place to find the best of the unsigned talent, the names who will be on everyoneâ€™s lips in the not too distant future, via the huge unsigned initiative known as METAL 2 THE MASSES.
Now, with just four weeks to go, the final winners can be revealed, plus a full rundown of the Saturday line up.
BOURNEMOUTH - METAL 2 THE MASSES WINNERS
Following the success of 2009's debut EP 'Drawn Viscera', Flayed Disciple have now completed their 2010 self titled EP, containing two new tracks 'Ejaculate While Killing' and 'Exodus', keeping to their soldering iron-hot, thrashing death metal style. Their new EP oozes brutality potential, showing labels, promoters the metal industry just how far the band has come, progressively evolutionarily. Flayed Disciple have set themselves a goal for the future of complete worldwide release of a full length album, and touring in as many countries that will have them. 2010 is purely the beginning for a band that has worked extremely hard to get where they are today, and who has plenty left in them to be lasting faces on the worldwide metal scene.

BLOODSTOCK are also proud to announce the addition of up and comers COLLAPSE. Drawing from the European melodic metal of acts such as The Haunted and Carcass, infused with the crushing grooves of US bands like Lamb of God and Pantera, COLLAPSE are bound to go down a storm at the SOPHIE LANCASTER stage on the Friday. Says frontman Duncan Wilkinson:
â€œWe canâ€™t wait to play Bloodstock! And on Friday the 13th too! Not only is it perfect timing for us as weâ€™ve just finished in the studio, but it will also see us sharing the stage with some of our personal heroes and musical influences. Bloodstock has gone from strength to strength and this year looks set to be a real stormer. See you down the front â€œ
The BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR METAL FESTIVAL 2010 will take place at Catton Hall, Derbyshire from 12th â€“ 15th August.
