Nile and Mayhem exclusive Bloodstock 2012

BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR has added another two fantastic acts to a line up already boasting the top names from the world of metal. The deadly double dose announcement comes in the form of Floridian death metal behemoths NILE and Norwegian Black Metal Legends MAYHEM, who both make their BLOODSTOCK debut.

With four critically acclaimed albums, a few EPs and several world tours under their belt, NILE has raised the bar for extreme metal bands musically, lyrically and conceptually. Guitarist/vocalist Karl Sanders says:

“The members of Nile are eagerly looking forward to our first-ever appearance at Bloodstock this year. Let Metal Take Place!“

Boasting withering live performances that are nothing short of legendary, expect NILE to deliver one of the most crushing sets of the weekend.

When it comes to the definitive history of black metal, MAYHEM’s name is at the forefront. Through the church burnings, murder, imprisonments and myopic teenage nationalism, MAYHEM has endured and survived, turning the circus-like atmosphere into a sustained musical career, in the studio and more importantly, on stage, without losing any of their spit and bile along the way.

With a live show oozing evil and darkness both sonically and visually, MAYHEM’s only UK show of 2012 will leave CATTON HALL in a bloody mess, and all the better for it.

BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR 2012 takes place at Catton Hall August 9th – 12th.

Line Up So Far:

RONNIE JAMES DIO STAGE – ALICE COOPER – BEHEMOTH – ANVIL – WATAIN – PARADISE LOST – DIMMU BORGIR – HATEBREED – CORROSION OF CONFORMITY – SANCTUARY – GRAND MAGUS – THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER – DEICIDE – NILE – MAYHEM – ORANGE GOBLIN – ANAAL NATHRAKH –
