BLOODSTOCK 2018 – Saturday, August 11 – Part 2 (Festival Review)

Combichrist – BLOODSTOCK 2018 Continuing with Saturday at Bloodstock Metal Festival brings us back to the main stage.  This was for a band that I had never seen and were in a genre of “metal” that I don’t much listen to.

This was a day that when it rained it bloody rained! Due to the bite I received, I tried to not run around as much. Difficult when enjoying a festival like Bloodstock 2018. But the plan was to make sure…

Hi, with less than 2 weeks to go to Bloodstock Festival 2018 this reviewer wishes to introduce himself properly and give a little information on the festival itself.
