Bristol Deathfest announce full lineup

Official press release:

Vader and Immolation will now be co-headlining Bristol Deathfest on Saturday night whilst Hour Of Penance and Defeated Sanity will co-headline Sunday night of the festival.

After releasing their eleventh brand new studio album The Empire through Nuclear Blast, Vader confirm they will be co-headlining the first night of Bristol Deathfest alongside American titans, Immolation. Original Saturday headliners, Defeated Sanity will now co-headline Sunday night together with Hour Of Penance. British lads, Ancient Ascendant have also been added and Dutch Abrupt Demise will make their first ever UK appearances at Bristol Deathfest.
The latest additions have secured Bristol Deathfest as one of the must attend events for any fan of death metal in the UK next year. Almost every band performing has released a new album in 2016 or will have new releases ready in 2017. Bristol Deathfest is the only place to see Hour Of Penance, Defeated Sanity, Nader Sadek, Kraanium, Cytotoxin, Epicardiectomy, and Abrupt Demise in the UK next year.

Defeated Sanity will be performing the Disposal Of The Dead Ep In its entirety before Hour Of Penance perform songs from their upcoming album Cast The First Stone and close the festival. Nader Sadek will be performing a special exclusive show at Bristol Deathfest, which will feature Derek Roddy (ex-Hate Eternal/Nile, Serpents Rise), Destructhor (Myrkskog, ex-Morbid Angel/Zyklon), George Maier (Pestilence), Sarah Jezebel Deva (ex-Cradle Of Filth/Therion) and Mahmud Gecekusu (Perversion).
