Bloodstock Festival : M2TM Wolverhampton - The Bands : Heat 5
Every year Bloodstock Festival runs the "Metal 2 The Masses" competition with regional heats up and down the country. Ultimately the winner of each competition gets to play on the hallowed grounds of Catton Hall, lining up at the festival alongside the likes of Judas Priest, Behemoth and Devin Townsend.
This year we are taking a deep dive into the Wolverhampton competition, being held at K.K.'s Steel Mill, a venue run by Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing!
With Heat 5 kicking off this Thursday, lets get to know the four bands competing for a place in the regional semi finals!
Hal: Man like big noise
Jordan: My influences are beyond scattered, having first gotten into music with bands like Maiden and Metallica, my playing/writing seems to borrow a lot from bands like Black Sabbath and Rush, with a bit of Japanese band Maximum the Hormone in the mix. I also listen to a lot of 2nd and 3rd wave ska which probably makes an appearance somewhere, honestly would be easier for someone else to answer this haha
Mystiek were sadly unavailable for interview prior to the heat, if they progress through to the semi finals we'll catch up with them then!
Celestivl have pulled out of the competition due to availability. We hope to see them back next year!
