The Razor's Edge: How would you describe your style of metal?
Verminthrone: Groovy sludge with hardcore and black metal elements. We love some filth but aren’t afraid to get groovy.
The Razor's Edge: How did you land your spot on the Bloodstock bill?
Verminthrone: We won the Milton Keynes M2TM competition.
The Razor's Edge: How tough was the competition this year?
Verminthrone: Ferocious. The bands this year were really the cream of the crop of local talent, we were blown away each time sharing a stage with them. It’s a fantastic competition though and we’ll be back next year to support in whichever way we can.
The Razor's Edge: What does playing at Bloodstock mean to you?
Verminthrone: It still hasn’t sunk in properly yet, but it’s mind blowing. It’s the biggest stage we’ve played on and we couldn’t be more both honoured and excited.
The Razor's Edge: For people who’ve never seen you live, what can they expect at Bloodstock?
Verminthrone: Energy, and lots of it. A heavy, fast, slow, angry and emotional performance.
The Razor's Edge: What day are you performing?
Verminthrone: Friday 12th August
The Razor's Edge: What other bands are you looking forward to watching at Bloodstock this year?
Verminthrone: Eyehategod and Lamb of God are right up there for us.
The Razor's Edge: Playing the New Blood Stage is just the first stepping stone in a bands journey. What’s next in your plans for world domination?
Verminthrone: Our debut EP ‘Kingdom of Worms’ is being released on July 29th. We have future shows booked in up and down the country to play both our EP and new/old material.
The Razor's Edge: See you at Bloodstock in a few weeks!
Verminthrone: Thank you, to say we’re excited is an understatement!
