Opeth To Headline Bloodstock 2010

With a line-up boasting headline appearances from* CHILDREN OF BODOM, FEAR
FACTORY, TWISTED SISTER, *plus a special guest slot filled by* MESHUGGAH,
BLOODSTOCK* can now confirm the final headline slot for *BLOODSTOCK OPEN AIR
2010*. The Friday night will be closed by Swedish Prog-Metal superstars
OPETH, who headlined back in 2008.

*”We’re pretty excited about coming back to play the Bloodstock festival
with Opeth.”* States frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt *“Myself and Axe will of
course be double-fisting since we gonna cause some havoc with Bloodbath as
well. We got asked to play since Heaven & Hell cancelled and even though we
obviously feel that we cannot possibly match their magic or fill the void,
it will be a like a personal tribute show to the memory of Ronnie Dio. So
needless to say I’m honoured to play, it will be intimidating and emotional
I believe. We’ll deliver as usual of course but yeah, I will be thinking
about Dio, that’s for sure.”

Since 1990, *OPETH* have dazzled audiences with their unique blend of death
metal, prog and folk, earning a diverse fanbase through the use of both
electric and acoustic guitars, and clean and growled vocals. Their 2008
headline slot earned the band rave reviews across the music press, for a
performance that had the assembled mass of metalheads captivated with their
intricate, beautifully executed compositions. With special guests *MESHUGGAH
* preceding *OPETH*’s headline slot, we look forward to an awesome close to
the first full day of BOA 2010 on Friday 13th August.

*CRUSADER LIMITED EDITION PRINT*

In other news, BLOODSTOCK founder Paul Gregory has released a Ltd Ed print
of the Crusader artwork. Crusader was not only the first album cover Paul
Raymond Gregory painted for Saxon but his first for any band. 25 years later
this historic cover is  released as a fine art limited edition print of 500
