“We are honoured to be a part of Bloodstock Open Air 2017 …Each year this spiritual home of heavy metal somehow betters the year before. We have each spent a lot of time on the hallowed ground of Catton Park, witnessing stunning new bands, the earth shattering veterans of the main stage and embracing the metal music community that we have come to call our family.  Now we are privileged to grace the Sophie stage, whose very name represents the strength and pride of our brotherhood.
