With five exclusive appearances already locked down for BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIRâ€™s 2011 event, the UKâ€™s only true METAL festival shows no sign of slowing down for XMAS with the revelation of another fantastic addition to next summerâ€™s line up. Swedish symphonic superstars THERION will bring their spectacular show to Catton Hall for their only UK appearance of 2011, one which they promise will be memorable:
"The band is thrilled to get the opportunity to play the Bloodstock and promise they will impact the island unforgettably"
Founded in 1987, the band have progressed from their death metal beginnings to become something truly special. Epic is too small a word to capture THERIONâ€™s grandiose output. The first metal band to utilise an orchestra, genuinely justifying their â€œsymphonicâ€ tag, THERION perfectly blends the best elements of metal - especially itâ€™s darker, more underground side - and classical, utilising choirs and classical instrumentation to create a musical world that one can find themselves totally lost in.
With MORBID ANGEL, RHAPSODY OF FIRE, TRIPTYKON and headliners IMMORTAL already confirmed to appear alongside THERION, BOA 2011 is set to be an unmissable event. What's more, early bird tickets are on sale now at the price of just Â£90 - rolled back from Â£99.95 - up to 15th December 2010 and are available from www.bloodstock.uk.com - get yours before this special offer runs out!
