In just four weeks time, arguably the “most metal” (whatever that means) of the UK summer festival season takes place: Bloodstock Open Air. To get ourselves in the mood for a weekend of wearing denim vests and drinking mead out of horn, we’ve put together a gigantic Sunday Spotify Slaylist, featuring the best of this year’s line-up.

There you go – yet another festival announcement, and yet another headline that pretty much tells the entire story. Lamb of God will be headlining the Saturday night of Bloodstock Open Air 2013, in what’s being billed as their only UK of next year.
Also added to the bill today were Dark Funeral and Amorphis. These three new additions join the previously announced King Diamond, Anthrax, Fozzy, Firewind and Accept over on the bill over at Catton Hall, which in 2013 takes place on the weekend of 08-11 August. Early Bird Weekend Tickets are on sale now for the bargain price of £100, so if you want to save a few quid for one of the many, many beers you can buy at Bloodstock, now would be a good time to cough up some cash.

You may not have heard of The Wretched End, but the chances are you know one of the guitarists. After all, Tomas Haugen – better known as Samoth – played in one of the finest metal bands of all time for their brief but superlative career. Yet the former Emperor guitarist does not seem content to disappear quietly into the night. On this evidence it looks like he is determined to continue tearing up your ears for years to come.
