Bloodstock announce Kreator as new Saturday night headliner and share details for 3 more bands

Bloodstock is working to bring you the very best metal party possible this August, but due to the ongoing issues and restrictions surrounding Covid-19, a number of overseas bands are no longer able to be at Catton Park with us this Summer.  


Moonspell

Hi Fernando, I’m glad to have you on Grande Rock. Great job on “Hermitage”!
 
F: Thank you so much, it is very kind.

 
Yes, I was having a listen and it is really really cool. I like all the sounding and everything going on in there as well.
 

Moonspell - Hermitage

I have had the pleasure to follow the Moonspell since its begging with the release of the “Wolfheart” album. I do think that 1996 was a milestone year for the band as they released “Irreligious”, their best album to date (according to Fernando as well), which made the band known all over the world and put them among the top bands of the gothic metal scene.
