Lebanese Groove/Thrash standard bearers Blaakyum headline New Blood Stage at Bloodstock in the United Kingdom.
Metal Hammer called Blaakyum the Middle Eastern metal pioneers and the standard bearers of Lebanese Groove and Thrash Metal for a reason. The band is a nonstop force of metal from this small seaside country. Since 2012, the band hasn’t stopped touring with a peak last year touring with British Thrash Legends Onslaught (read our exclusive about the tour here)!
This year, Blaakyum are going back to the UK, 10 years later, as headliners. The band went to the UK as the winners of GBOB in 2007 and represented Lebanon in the global battle, winning a remarkable 7th place, being the only Metal band competing against mainstreamers. This year, Blaakyum will headline the Hobgoblin New Blood Stage on Sunday 13th of August 2017 at Bloodstock Catton Park, Derbyshire, United Kingdom.
Bloodstock will feature an array of great bands with Main headliners on the Ronnie James Dio Stage:
