DIMMU BORGIR, HATEBREED, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY & ANAAL NATHRAKH JOIN BOA LINE UP
On the RONNIE JAME DIO main stage, Norwegian Black Metal superstars DIMMU BORGIR return to BLOODSTOCK for their only UK show of 2012, taking next year’s first Special Guest slot. Undoubtedly Norway’s biggest Black Metal export, DIMMU BORGIR are one of the scene’s leaders, seamlessly blending ferocious metal with epic classical orchestration to create one of extreme music’s most instantly identifiable sounds
Joining them are hardcore metal heroes HATEBREED. Ultra-aggressive and punishingly heavy, a HATEBREED show will demand – and command – your undivided attention with their brutal, boot-to-the-teeth heaviness.
Another band who’s only UK performance of 2012 will be on BLOODSTOCK’s RONNIE JAMES DIO stage are none other than CORROSION OF CONFORMITY – or C.O.C for the initiated – who bring their original line up to CATTON HALL for a very special set. Together again after 25 years, Reed Mullin, Woody Weatherman and Mike Dean reunite to bring the spirit of 1985 to Derbyshire, with tracks from their hugely influential crossover classic “Animosity”.
Over on the SOPHIE LANCASTER stage, British Black metal Bruisers ANAAL NATHRAKH make their only UK festival performance of 2012. Created for one purpose – to be the soundtrack for armageddon, the audial essence of evil, hatred and violence, the true spirit of necro taken to its musical extremes
