BLOODSTOCK welcomes in 2019 by announcing four new bands for August’s best metal weekender. If you’ve dropped all your money on Christmas and are counting the pennies, the popular ticket payment plan is also now open, breaking that weekend ticket cost into five much more manageable chunks. First things first though, four more join the fray....

POWERWOLF land the coveted main stage special guest slot on Friday. The band tell us "We're looking forward to returning to the mighty BLOODSTOCK Festival after almost ten years to celebrate the metal mass with our friends in the UK - this is going to be a truly wild one!!" The German power metallers released their seventh studio album, ‘The Sacrament of Sin’ in July of last year, from which spawned the vampire-themed video for ‘Killers With The Cross’; https://youtu.be/cXOAcuNhFS4.

SOULFLY also step into a Ronnie James Dio main stage spot on Friday. Frontman Max Cavalera is looking forward to playing at Catton Park, telling us “BLOODSTOCK 2019, get ready! It will be a Cavalera invasion! SOULFLY will be playing a lot of songs off our new album, ‘Ritual’. My son, Richie, is coming with INCITE too and together we will make a day to remember! Fuck yeah! Let the Ritual begin!” SOULFLY released their eleventh studio album, ‘Ritual’ via Nuclear Blast earlier this year. Check out the groove laden title track here; https://youtu.be/z2LHZs7xx-w.

As Max Cavalera pre-empted, Phoenix metal squad, INCITE come to Catton Park for the first time, picking up Friday’s hotly-contested main stage opening spot! With their fifth studio album, ‘Built To Destroy’ landing in stores on 25th Jan via MinusHEAD Records, there’s plenty of catalogue to check out if you’ve not listened to the band before. Maybe start by watching the video to the new album’s title track here; https://youtu.be/CCoGid3u-wc.

Finnish prog doomsters, SWALLOW THE SUN grab themselves an early main stage spot on Saturday. Introduce yourself to their sound with ‘Rooms And Shadows’ - https://youtu.be/0_veG-Hv4I8 - taken from their 2015 album, 'Songs From The North I, II & II'. The band also released the atmospheric and ethereal ‘Lumina Aurea’ EP on the Winter Solstice in December via Century Media.

These four bands join the previously announced Friday night headliner, SABATON, Sunday’s bill toppers SCORPIONS, together with ANTHRAX, DIMMU BORGIR, CHILDREN OF BODOM, CODE ORANGE, SOILWORK, CRADLE OF FILTH, THY ART IS MURDER, TESSERACT, METAL CHURCH, DEATH ANGEL, DEE SNIDER, QUEENSRYCHE, ELUVEITIE, EVIL SCARECROW, ROSS THE BOSS, GRAND MAGUS, ROTTING CHRIST and HYPOCRISY on the Catton Park stages next August. Stay tuned for more bands to be announced soon!

I'd already bought the ticket, but this announcement makes the festival even better. Friday is one of the best looking days for my tastes in years. Saturday now improved by the sublime Swallow the Sun

Good stuff, Powerwolf and Swallow the Sun are both very much my thing. Soulfly and Incite, not so much, but you can't like everything.

This one's all about Powerwolf. A long overdue and very welcome return to Bloodstock. Two back to back power metal bands might piss off a few people, but I won't be one of them.

Powerwolf - Surprised at the SG position, but the more I think about it, the more I agree that is where they should be. I'm very happy to see them on the line up, creating the first ever double power metal header to a day at Bloodstock! Don't know whether or not to go see them in Bristol in a couple of weeks now...

Swallow the Sun - Probably one of my top 10 favourite bands of all time. I discovered them around the time they played BOA 2008 and Im so glad to see them back. Im personally happy to see them on the mainstage early on, as it will be nostalgic for me having enjoyed them thoroughly in a similar slot back in 2008. New album promises to be excellent as well!

Soulfly - Another band from 2008! I sort of enjoyed their set back then, but I was younger and the band were better. I haven't listened to them for years and I'm hearing that their recent stuff is poor. Ill check out some new stuff and see if I will want to bother catching their set.

Incite - never heard of them, but I see its Max Cavalera's son, so it seems like a waste of a slot for a potentially more deserving band. Reminds me of Rise to Remain playing in (again) 2008 because it was Bruce Dickinson's son!

I'm fairly sure Bristol's sold out so unless you've got tickets you'll have to wait until Bloodstock.

Oh right, well that makes the decision easier if it is!

Had a listen to Incite and decided they were a good reason to sleep in on the Friday.

Another strong announcement that makes me actually quite tempted. Now just confirm Graveyard after I couldn't see them on tour and I'll be a definite yes!

Just to be a pedantic dick, 2002 & 2005 (Friday) both head a power headliner & sub :lol:
Closest outdoor is probably 2006, Stratovarius headlining subbed by Turisas.


Fair enough, but I was only thinking of the outdoor fests. I even checked BOA 2006 myself to check who subbed for Stratovarius!
