Bloodstock 2016: DragonForce, Rotting Christ and Paradise Lost announced

Following the exciting news that Twisted Sister and Mastodon are headlining next year’s Bloodstock-Open-Air, more great bands have been added to the bill.

Multi-national space-metallers DragonForce, Greek extreme metal band Rotting Christ and UK dark rockers Paradise Lost.

Rotting Christ front-man, Sakis, had this to say:

“We’re very proud to be coming back to the biggest metal festival in the United Kingdom!  Bloodstock, let’s create hell on earth next year!  Until then…keep the spirit alive!”

This will be Rotting Christ’s only UK show of 2016. Bloodstock will also be the only UK appearance by DragonForce. Iconic Guitarist Herman Li had this to say:

“It’s been over 10 years since DragonForce played Bloodstock, and both of us have come a long way in that time.  Back then, we were a new band with only our debut album out, and Bloodstock was a smaller indoor festival, but still a magnet for true, die-hard rock & metal fans, just as it is today.  We had some of our best times that year at Bloodstock and felt great excitement at being invited to play.   That excitement is just as real today having been invited back again, only this time it’s even better because I won’t need to pack the gear and drive up there in my car with Sam Totman as my map reader!!”

The newly announced bands join Venom and Behemoth alongside headliners Mastodon and Twisted Sister on the Bloodstock 2016 line up.
