You know the drill by now. This is the Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page and this is where you’ll find some of the most comprehensive coverage of Bloodstock Open Air 2013 that you don’t have to pay for. It’s here!
Belphegor is an Austrian death/black metal band from Salzburg, Austria, originally formed in 1991 under the name Betrayer before changing their name in 1993. They are named after the demon Belphegor. They released their most recent album Totenritual in 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records.
Belphegor was founded as Betrayer in 1991 by vocalist and bassist Maxx, guitarists Helmuth and Sigurd, and drummer Chris. The band released their first demo Kruzifixion in April 1991, and Unborn Blood later on. Read more on Last.fm
Belphegor on Thrash Hits

We can’t even do that rollng-your-eyes-back-in-your-head-thing at all, let alone when we’re onstage playing blackened death metal at Bloodstock Open Air. Bravo, Belphegor, bravo.

You’ve read the headline, right? Well that’s the story: Belphegor and Hell have been added to Bloodstock Open Air’s 2013 line-up. That’s all there is to it.
Today’s two new additions join the previously announced King Diamond, Lamb of God, Slayer, Anthrax, Fozzy, Firewind, Dark Funeral, Amophis, DevilDriver, Ex Deo, Accept, Whitechapel, Kataklysm, Municipal Waste, Avantasia and Negligence over on the bill over at Catton Hall, which in 2013 takes place on the weekend of 08-11 August. Tickets are on sale now, starting at £125 (before fees) and rising depending on what camping, parking, and VIP stuff you add to the mix, but there’s a deposit scheme in place if you only want to pay a fraction of the full price up front. Which is nice.

Earlier this week, Damnation Festival announced Hawk Eyes, Ravens Creed and The Atrocity Exhibit as the final three bands for their 2012 line-up, and my, what a killer line-up it is too. Headed up by Dorset doom overlords, Electric Wizard, this year’s Damnation Festival also sees Pig Destroyer make their first return to the UK in eight years – why the hell haven’t you bought a ticket already? If you have bought a ticket already: well done. You know the score.

Right, that’s it – that’s you lot. Damnation Festival have completed the line-up for their 2012 festival tonight by confirming the opening acts for all three of the festival’s stages – The Atrocity Exhibit on the Terrorizer stage, Hawk Eyes on the Jägermeister stage, and Ravens Creed on the Eyesore.
July 16th, 2012
Damnation Festival have announced another three bands for November – influential crust/grind pioneers, Extreme Noise Terror, blakened death metal beasts, Belphegor, and fresh-faced progressive-hardcore types, Devil Sold His Soul. Both Extreme Noise Terror and Belphegor join the Terrorizer Stage line-up, where Belphegor will be playing their only UK show of 2012. DSHS take a spot on the not-quite-so-kvltish Jägermeister Stage.
