SEVEN weekends to go, 52 days until Bloodstock and the announcements keep coming!
We all remember that Overoth won through the Metal 2 The Masses heat here in Belfast, we can now confirm that they will be playing the New Blood stage on Saturday. Winners of the RoI heat, thrashers Animator play the same stage on Sunday.
We all love Oaf and Friend, and as an added bonus 'Friend', a.k.a. metal journo Dom Lawson will be performing a DJ set, as will The Vicious Breed, Mordred's DJ Aaron 'Pause' Vaughn, the legendary Krusher Joule and Desertfest's Rich Harris.
As if that wasn't enough there's added laughs. Andrew O'Neill will perform his outstanding 'History of Heavy Metal' comedy show (and anyone who saw it in Belfast last year knows it is a hoot). Big C will bring his 'heavy metal spoken word and Jesus-a-like Gordy Jebus from the infamous 'Jesus Is A Cunt t-shirt festival snap will also be doing a stand-up routine.
With an already packed line-up (many expressing how honoured they are to be on the same bill as By Any Means) you have no excuse not to be there. Fer Feck's Sake - there's Sabaton, Opeth, Rob Zombie, Black Label Society, Orange Goblin, Armored Saint, Nuclear Assault, Cannibal Corpse, Overkill, Dark Angel, Napalm Death etc etc etc over the four days. There's even Trivium and Within Temptation...
Tickets are still available on the 24-hour ticket line at 0871 230 5584 or on the tinterweb here. See y'all at Catton Park, Derbyshire 6th to 9th August.
