French heavyweights GOJIRA are set to bring their whale-sized riffs to Catton Park as Saturday’s special guests! A crowd favourite every time they play, and with a brand new album on the way, being recorded in their own studio, their Bloodstock set is sure to be a sight to behold.
Frontman Joe Duplantier said: “Bloodstock is one of our favourite festivals in the UK! The quality of the bands playing is always a high standard and we love the passion of the people who come to rock out! It’s an honour to be a part of it again.” Look out for updates from the studio at www.facebook.com/GojiraMusic.
Axe legend Scott Ian said: “On the most metal of days we will once again have the privilege to rage with you crazy fuckers! Bloodstock !!! A festival fit for all kings!!! See what I did there? See ya soon, my friends.” Get excited by checking out their latest single ‘Evil Twin’, released last month, at: http://youtu.be/xPmLkF3e6Fc.
Playing their only UK show for 2016 are Norwegian trailblazers SATYRICON, performing their classic ‘Nemesis Devina’ album in full on Sunday.
“Next year it’s 20 years since Satyricon made its live debut as a band, and 20 years since we released Nemesis Divina,” frontman and visionary Satyr said.
“There's a nemesis walking through life, for all to face. And there's a Divine Nemesis, for all to face that come to see Satyricon at BLOODSTOCK 2016. Let us celebrate the 20th anniversary of a milestone album like only Norsemen and Brits can!" Learn more at www.facebook.com/SatyriconOfficial.
