It’s just over thirty days until thousands of metal fans descend upon Catton Hall for Bloodstock 2018 but organisers aren’t finished with the line-up yet. A whole bunch of new additions have been added to the New Blood and Jagermeister stages and we’ve picked three particular highlights who we think will be worth your time.

1. GarshKott
– Hailing from Milton Keynes, GarshKott have a new release entitled Torment out on the 28th July and with much love for the likes of Pantera, Lamb of God, KsE and Parkway Drive what more reason could you need to check out the groove metal quintet? For more information, please visit their Facebook Page.

Where To See Them: New Blood Stage (Friday)

Check out Garshkott’s Live Video for “Deadeye”


2. Imminent Annihilation
– Imminent Annihilation come pummelling out of Aylesbury with a name that promises utter carnage. The band have been churning out head-melting heaviness since 2011 and will hopefully have a new album out later this year. For now though, if you fancy a gloriously relentless blast of brutality, we certainly recommend these boys. For more information, please visit their Facebook Page.

Where To See Them: New Blood Stage (Sunday)

Check out Imminent Annihilation’s Lyric Video for “Human Culling Farm”


3. Trivax
– Bloodstock is the perfect place to discover something a bit different so, given that black/death metal outfit Trivax originally formed in Iran before relocating to Birmingham to pursue the metal lifestyle, we can’t think of a better reason to check this lot out. For more information, please visit their Facebook Page.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
