* BLOODSTOCK – SIX MORE ACTS JOIN NEW BLOOD STAGE *

With the BLOODSTOCK Metal 2 The Masses roadshow hot footing its way round England, Wales, Scotland and Norway covering over 3,500 road miles, several flights and countless over priced service station coffee’s – the journey is nearing its conclusion.

Two shows remain this weekend, but for now we’ve unearthed some real gems with all the growling, snarling and shredding associated with breaking metal and we’ve even found a Heavy Metal One Man Band!!! Plus the Bloodstock website competition has grabbed hold of another couple of bands that brings the New Blood Stage’s total to a staggering 36 underground bands over the entire weekend.

FOUL BODY AUTOPSY

Armed with an ipod, Jackson Guitar and a desire to crush skulls FOUL BODY AUTOPSY is a one man band from Leicester City founded by metal maverick Tom Reynolds. Over the space of 18 months Tom has released a full length album and is now working with the Onslaught Management team planning for a full metal tirade in the UK.

Prior to this Tom has shared the stage with the likes of DESOLATED, POSTMORTEM PROMISES, MARTYR DEFILED, PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT, LORDAERON, FLAYED DISCIPLE, MERCILESS TERROR, CANCEROUS WOMB, GENERAL SURGERY, AEON & CEREBRAL BORE With pure shred techniques, blistering speed and no lack of humour within his show this is a unique show that should not be missed.

IMPALED EXISTENCE

Impaled Existence is a 5-piece progressive, groove death metal band from North Wales, UK. Forming in 2004, the band has grown and matured into a finely tuned combination of brutality and melody. With songs “A BLACKENED HEART” and “THROUGH STINGING EYES” the band shows off it's more aggressive and progressive side with devastating riffs, stomach crushing bass lines, pounding double-bass footwork and ear-shattering vocals. Showing their diversity, songs “WORTHY OF REMAINS” and “FICTIONS WITHIN THE MIND” demonstrate the band's more melodic side. Influences Range from various metal bands, brutal and melodic, such as: WHITECHAPEL, AFTER THE BURIAL, VEIL OF MAYA & IN FLAMES, just to name a few. IMEX have played with: EXODUS, EVILE (Metal hammer Competition winners) DECAPITATED, KATAKLYSYM, MAN MUST DIE, MARIONETTE, SWALLOW THE SUN, TED MAUL, SUICIDE SILENCE, BORN OF OSIRIS, INGESTED, ANNOTATIONS OF AN AUTOPSY PLUS MANY MORE.

HOSTILE RISING

Hostile Rising formed in autumn 2008. Together the five members create a blend of tight, machine-gun riffs and southern grooves with a dark, melodic edge.
The band have gigged with acts throughout Yorkshire and the Midlands, and headlined many shows around Leeds and Wakefield in particular. HR also performed at Wakefield Rock Festival 2010, playing alongside acts including Sensor, Pitchshifter and InMe. Hostile Rising are continuously writing new material encompassing their best elements: powerful and creative drums; heavy and melodic guitars; groove-laden bass; and a blend of harsh, guttural vocals & manic screams.

WOLFCRUSHER

Wolfcrusher was the brainchild of guitarist Dan Mucs (Not Above Evil, Dirty Habit, Ten Foot Wizard) with his machine-like ability to churn out great riff after great riff, and a great ear for a mind-blowing melody, the foundations could not have been set on more solid ground.

He joined forces with drummer Dan Mikietyn (ex Blood Vigil), with a love of linear drum patterns, creative syncopation, and the priceless ability to slip into a huge groove, the two found an immediate chemistry and hit the band room to start working on something that would turn heads, and ears.

They soon enlisted good friend, and incredibly talented lead Arun Kamath (Soma Dark, ex Bisonhammer) on guitar, adding another dynamic to the already brutal tone of the band.

Chris Mitchell-Taylor (Visitor, ex-Blood Vigil) on bass, solidified the rhythm section and contributed his unique and captivating presence to the stage.

Gary Harkin (Bisonhammer, Ten Foot Wizard) came into the fold and provided the final piece of the puzzle. With the ability to Jump from guttural growls, searing screams, to the melodious vocal lines that perfectly compliment the diverse WOLFCRUSHER sound. The line-up was complete.

Wolfcrusher take their influence from Death Metal, Southern Rock, and everything in between, the only premise being: Make it groovy, make it catchy, and make it heavy!

Playing their first gig in December 2010, they instantly made a buzz as word got around about their infectious music and explosive live show.

VISITOR

The Four piece Metal act from Manchester, England, Visitor was forged by lead vocalist/guitarist Jim Foster and drummer Tim Marland to bring a different and unique sound and power to metal. The band created a unique sound to which caught the ears and eyes of fans everywhere. With the addition of second guitarist Gaz Hayden and bassist Mitch the sound of clashing guitars grew stronger and heavier. Visitor have been constantly gigging all over the country and have recently completed a new CD and are next bound for more venues around the northwest alongside Bloodstock and other proposed festival dates.

Swiss rockers REDEEM release their second single from their 999 album on August 9th 2011. With a misleading intro that could make one think “Is this actually a new Techno hit?”, the subsequent guitar riff immediately turns the table: This is rock, albeit backed by a danceable rhythm. “Gravity“ merges Rock & Dancefloor congenially and originally. This second single by Zug/Switzerland based REDEEM strikes a new path, and at the same time sticks with the band's proven roots in “Contemporary Rock“. With “999“ entereding the Swiss album charts, a rapturous reception supporting 3 DOORS DOWN at select shows last month, Stefano “Saint“ Paolucci, Simon “Simu“ Steiner and Roman “Pom“ Albisser are primed and ready for takeoff!

Pre-orders are up now at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gravity-Radioedit/dp/B005CFOS8S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UT…

THE TREATMENT, the five-piece rock troupe from Cambridge who have recently appeared at both the Sonisphere & High Voltage festivals, will have their debut album, ‘This Might Hurt’, released through the Spinefarm label on September 5th 2011.

Featuring tracks such as ‘Departed’, ‘The Doctor’ and new single/video ‘D***k, F**k, F***t’, this 12-track release (plus two bonus tracks) is currently collecting considerable acclaim – not just in the UK but also in Canada, Germany, the US & Japan, and indeed the band are expecting to visit Japan for the first time later this year.

In support of the September release, a ‘launch party’ will take place at the Borderline in London on Tuesday, September 6th; in keeping with the theme of the album artwork (a nurse with a chainsaw – not sure if you can get this on the NHS?!) and ‘D***k…’ video, those attending are being encouraged to come in medical attire, or at least sporting a mocked-up ‘injury’ or ‘wound’. The person judged to have made most effort on the night will receive a signed Yamaha guitar.

SOUL ASYLUM RETURN TO THE UK AFTER 16 YEAR ABSENCE

Alt-rock legends SOUL ASYLUM will return to the UK after a 16 year absence to headline London’s HMV Forum in Kentish Town on Saturday October 15th.

True survivors of the rock struggle, whose home-made post-punk ethos made them one of the cornerstones of the No Depression movement in the ’90s, Soul Asylum enjoyed huge success in the when their “Grave Dancers Union” album went triple platinum, catapulting them into mainstream consciousness. A constant presence on radio waves and MTV alike in the 90s, with instantly recognisable hits such as “Black Gold”, “Somebody To Shove” and “Runaway Train”, Soul Asylum had no less than four top 40 hits in the UK charts before disappearing from these shores.

Now, sixteen years later, they return for an exclusive UK show this October.
