Powerwolf and Soulfly are among the latest acts to be announced for this year’s Bloodstock line up.
The German power metallers, who released their seventh album ‘The Sacrament of Sin’ last summer, have landed the coveted main stage special guest slot on Friday, while Max Cavalera and co. step into a Ronnie James Dio main stage spot also on Friday, where they’ll be playing a lot of songs off their 11th album, ‘Ritual’.
Speaking about the booking, Powerwolf said:
“We’re looking forward to returning to the mighty Bloodstock Festival after almost 10 years to celebrate the metal mass with our friends in the UK – this is going to be a truly wild one!!”
Max Cavalera added:
“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!”
Hailing from Phoenix, Incite slot into Friday’s hotly-contested main stage opening spot, while Finnish prog doomsters Swallow The Sun grab themselves an early main stage set on Saturday.
The four latest additions join the previously announced Friday night headliner, Sabaton, Sunday’s bill toppers Scorpions, plus Anthrax, Dimmu Borgir, Children of Bodom, Code Orange, Soilwork, Cradle of Filth, Tesseract, Death Angel, Dee Snider, Thy Art Is Murder, Rotting Christ, Grand Magus and more at Catton Park, Derbyshire between August 8 and 11.
