Final acts for Bloodstock's S.O.P.H.I.E. stage announced

With a bill absolutely rammed with pure heaviness, power and moments that are going to blow people away, the final few acts have been announced for the already fit-to-burst S.O.P.H.I.E. stage at this year's Bloodstock Festival, which is only 164 days away.

Snagging slots on the Thursday are Bristol blues-punks MOTHER VULTURE - who look like they may cause a few beer spillages with their high energy antics - and serial-killer grindcorists BASEMENT TORTURE KILLINGS who as their name suggests sound brutal as f@&k.

Friday sees deathgrind squad CREPITATION added to the bill along with London thrashers INHUMAN NATURE.

Hull crew MASTIFF are promising a pummelling with their brutal assault on Saturday morning where we’re certain they’ll shake loose a few of those mid-festival hangovers when they open things up early on. And for fans of Black Sabbath and Black Label Society Sunday brings PELUGION who move up the ranks from their 2018 New Blood set.

Keep an eye out for our unmissable acts and what to expect at Bloodstock features coming soon.

Meanwhile, BLOODSTOCK’s Metal 2 The Masses, the initiative that supports all genres of grass roots metal and offers a chance to play BOA’s New Blood stage, is proud to announce a partnership with Eyesore Merch in 2022. 

The programme provides up and coming bands with an awesome opportunity to be seen and heard by a wide audience and part of the music industry normally out of reach for bands at that level. In partnering with Metal 2 The Masses, Eyesore Merch wants to add to that opportunity by offering 3 winning bands from the 26 regional heats, a chance to get their merchandise showcased to an audience of potential new fans. Those 3 winners will see their merchandise featured and available to purchase on www.eyesoremerch.com, have their gear included on Eyesore Merch’s mailout direct to customers and featured on the Eyesore Merch socials.

BLOODSTOCK’s 2022 Ronnie James Dio main stage headliners are BEHEMOTH, LAMB OF GOD, and MERCYFUL FATE. Also appearing across the weekend are KILLING JOKE, DIMMU BORGIR, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, AVATAR, ALL HAIL THE YETI, BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, GWAR (in a UK festival exclusive), BURY TOMORROW, SACRED REICH, LIFE OF AGONY, SPIRITWORLD, BELPHEGOR, BUTCHER BABIES, VIO-LENCE, BLOODYWOOD, JINJER, LORNA SHORE, DOYLE, LOST SOCIETY, HATEBREED, SLEEP TOKEN, DARK FUNERAL, EYEHATEGOD, DISCHARGE, STATIC-X, THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA, ENFORCED, PARTY CANNON, SOEN, HERIOT, BLOOD YOUTH, BLACK TONGUE, HEART OF A COWARD, FEROCIOUS DOG, HEATHEN, NEKROGOBLIKON, CATTLE DECAPITATION, ORBIT CULTURE, TALLAH, SAMAEL, CYHRA, NOCTEM, NANOWAR OF STEEL, THROWN INTO EXILE, PUPIL SLICER, CAGE FIGHT, VENDED, ILL NINO, SKARLETT RIOT, DESERT STORM, SORCERER, RED METHOD, and BAEST as well as many more yet to come. Stay tuned for additional 2022 announcements in due course.
