The epitome of heavy, Kirk Windstein and co have been showing the world that speed isn't everything since their debut Thru Sufferingâ stunned the metal world in 1991 with its downtuned, slow-paced yet punishingly heavy sound. With nine studio albums under their very large belts, CROWBAR have mastered the art of the riff, continually delivering irresistible sludgey metal via a sound uniquely their own. The RONNIE JAMES DIO Stage will be put to the test at CROWBAR's only UK festival of 2012.
Over on the SOPHIE stage, additions come in the form of homegrown extreme symphonic metallers and Metal 2 The Masses winners SATURNIAN,fellow countrymen and Melo-death thrashers BLOODSHOT DAWN, as well as Finnish melodic death metallers Re-Armed.
At only £115 for a four day ticket with camping included,BLOODSTOCKoffers incredible value for money and more exclusive appearances than any other festival. With headline sets from BEHEMOTH, ALICE COOPER, plus a very very special mystery headliner – to be revealed at 6pm on the 6th June – comedy, fairground rides and a genuine real ale bar, there is no better place for the British metalhead this summer.
