2010 was certainly good to Scottish ‘Blood Metallers’ Achren who were justifiably confirmed as the Bloodstock-Open-Air 2010 UK Metal 2 the Masses prize winners.
Following a blinding performance to a suitably large audience at the New Blood stage the band have now been confirmed to perform at the 2011 Wacken-Open-Air festival on the Metal Battle stage – a well-deserved and massive achievement.
The band’s bio states that Achren were formed in 2003, and play a brand of metal that is crushingly heavy and uncompromising. Filled with raw and razor sharp riffs, death metal growls, black metal screams, and pounding drums they create a unique and commandeering sound which over the course of their first two demos and subsequent releases have forged the term ‘Blood Metal.’ Consistently touring the UK over the last few years to great live acclaim, the band have build a steady fanbase around the country.
Frontman Scott ‘ The Metal 2 the Masses initiative has given us a great chance to take the band to a different level. The whole team at Bloodstock work so hard to make it the best metal festival in the UK and we can’t thank everybody enough for providing us with this great opportunity.’
The band also filmed the whole Bloodstock-Open-Air set for release on DVD in January 2011 and their as yet untitled album is now complete and ready for a spring release in time for further Summer Festival appearances.
