Give me the ‘Hollywood Film’ version of how the band formed and how you came to be named..
Under blackened clouds, one dark night in 2007, Satan came to guitarist TK and gave him the name ‘Cacodaemonic’ in exchange for his soul.

Over a couple of years, he recruited fellow daemonic souls in the quest to create unholy, blackened death metal music. To this day they have released 2 EP’s of unbridled venom and are working on their debut full length.

What style of metal do you play?
Blackened Death Metal

What bands would you say your music is ‘for fans of’ ?
Behemoth, Nile, Vital Remains, Morbid Angel, Belphegor.

How did you get your slot at the Festival?
By winning Metal to the Masses.

What’s the first thing you did after you found out you had a slot?
Cheered with the crowd! Couldn’t believe we got the slot.

Which of your tracks do you think will create the biggest wave of head banging?
‘Forever Devouring the Righteous’ off our current EP.

Is this the largest event you have played, and what are the nerves like?
Yes this will be the biggest event we’ve played and we’re nervous but really excited to be playing Bloodstock!

Which band member(s) are likely to have the most incriminating photos after the festival?
Jake, our bassist will most likely be caught doing something dodgy with an inflatable sheep….

Which bands are you most looking forward to seeing?
Definitely Emperor, Decapitated and Megadeth.

What have been the best moments for you at previous Bloodstock Festivals?
One of the best moments was meeting Mitch Harris from Napalm Death at a takeaway stand in the main area a few years ago and smoking shisha pipes with friends.

What is your current release? Explain a little about it….
Our current release is an EP called ‘Forever Devouring The Righteous’ which was self-released last year. Artwork was done Matt Vickerstaff (Darkwave Art) who’s worked with such bands as My Dying Bride and Cradle of Filth which was awesome to have him do. It’s 4 tracks of fast, brutal blackened death metal!

Give one good reason/threat/sob story as to why fans should come watch you…
Sob story! It would be awesome to see as many faces when we play on the Saturday as we’re really excited to be playing Bloodstock!

Show your excitement in one Tweet…
