This August's Bloodstock Festival is already looking to be an unmissable event for metal fans – now it's just got even better.
Iced Earth have now been added to the bill for the Saturday of the three-day festival for what will be their only UK show of this year.
December 2007 saw band chief John Schaffer bow to longtime fans' wishes and announce the return of vocalist Matt Barlow to replace fornmer Judas Priest frontman Tim 'Ripper' Owens.
The band are currently working on a new album tentatively titled 'Revelation Abomination' and preparing for their first live shows of 2008.
