Thrash legends OVERKILL are set to grace the Ronnie James Dio stage. With the band’s latest album, ‘White Devil Armory’ still hot on the racks, the band’s frontman Bobby ‘Blitz’ Ellsworth comments; “We are loading the BIG guns and setting sail for the UK this summer! Be warned! The island is in danger, it’s a White Devil Army….Lets make BLOODSTOCK 2015 a bloodbath!”

Folk metallers from Finland, ENSIFERUM also join the 2015 bill having recently wrapped up recording on brand new album, ‘One Man Army’, set for release on 23rd February. If you didn’t catch them at BLOODSTOCK in 2010, this live clip of ‘From Afar’ from that performance ought to whet your appetite:
The band state, “It feels really awesome to return to mighty Bloodstock again! There are so many great memories from previous years and now it’s time to make bunch of new ones. This gig will be really special because we head to Bloodstock with brilliant set of golden oldies and nutcracking metal anthems from our new album! So see you all there! Mosh till you drop!”
Austrian blackened death metallers, BELPHEGOR make a return to Catton Park in 2015. Their latest opus was rightfully critically lauded. Frontman/guitarist and founder Helmuth Lehner comments
“BELPHEGOR returns to the ingenious BLOODSTOCK Open Air! We will play at the main stage and promote our latest offering ‘Conjuring The Dead’. BELPHEGOR will bring you the most intense ritual possible. Join the pit and prepare for Diabolical Death Metal chaos.” What are you waiting for?
