Egyptian death metal outfit SCARAB have also been announced and will perform on the Sophie Lancaster Stage.
Speaking about the announcement, SOILWORK‘s Björn ‘Speed’ Strid says, “we are really thrilled to return to UK soil after a killer mini-tour with ARCH ENEMY last year. That ended with one of the most spectacular and sweatiest shows to date at The Underworld in London. Bloodstock is always a riot and we cannot wait to hit the stage this summer. Bring it England!!!” Similarly, WINTERSUN say, “it’ll be great to come back to the atmospheric Bloodstock. We had a blast in 2011, but this year is extra special since we’re going to play new music for you guys! See ya in August!”
The full list of bands announced for this year’s festival is as follows:
- AMON AMARTH (Friday Headliners)
