The boys from Brazil will be adding some Copacabana crushers to Bloodstock’s Friday line-up later in the year. SOULFLY will be performing on the Ronnie James Dio main stage spot where they are sure to feature a few tracks from their latest album, Ritual, released in October, via Nuclear Blast. You can catch up with the album’s title track here.
The day will be something of a Cavalera celebration with Max’s son Richie also performing with his band INCITE. Max declared: “Bloodstock 2019, get ready! It will be a Cavalera invasion! We will make a day to remember! Fuck yeah! Let the Ritual begin!”
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 25 January 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 below!
Finnish prog doomsters, SWALLOW THE SUN grab themselves an early main stage spot on the Saturday bill. Introduce yourself to their sound with ‘Rooms And Shadows’ 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.

The band said: “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 this vampire-themed video for ‘Killers With The Cross’.
