The band who are currently in rehearsals for a UK tour next month, said, ""We are extremely excited to be a part of next year's Bloodstock festival. It will be great to reconnect with our UK based friends and fans and party up a storm!"

Also making their only UK show of 2012 will be hardcore metallers Hatebreed who added, "We're all very excited to play Bloodstock. It's fast becoming one of the best festivals for extreme music and this year's line up is going to crush. We are honoured to share the stage with such awesome bands and happy that we can come and play for our UK die hards!"

Another band making their only UK performance of 2012 on the main Ronnie James Dio Stage at Bloodstock will be Corrosion of Conformity who will bring their original line-up to Catton Hall, Walton-on-Trent, in South Derbyshire for a special set. Together again after 25 years, Reed Mullin, Woody Weatherman and Mike Dean reunite to bring the spirit of 1985 to Derbyshire, with tracks from their classic album 'Animosity'.

Lastly, Brit Black metallers Anaal Nathrakh will make their only UK festival performance of 2012 on the Sophie Lancaster Stage on Sunday.

They join a line-up that includes the previously confirmed Watain, Paradise Lost, Anvil, Orange Goblin, and Doomed. For the line-up details as available please click here.
