August 13th, Wretched Soul gave a memorable performance the Sophie Lancaster Stage at Bloodstock Open Air. Here’s some shots and reviews from the weekend…

“From the opening notes, Wretched Soul utterly blew me away. Proving to be one of my highlights of the whole weekend, the quintet perfectly mixed black metal and thrash, with a traditional heavy metal flare thrown in for good measure.” – AllAboutTheRock

“Wretched Soul (8) proved to be my favourite new discovery of the weekend. With a raging storm of deathrash, the band enticed a huge crowd to the Sophie tent. Their ferocious sound got plenty of raised fists and flailing hair as an intense mosh pit raged at the front of the crowd. With rave reviews for their latest album The Ghost Road and intense live performances like on the Sophie Lancaster stage at Bloodstock, Wretched Soul are destined to rise to the top of the UK extreme metal underground.” – Moshville Times

“The Sophie crowd needed the blue touch paper lit to burst into life, and the band [Wretched Soul] duly did exactly that. “We are Wretched Soul and we are here to give you your Sunday seance. We have a cure for you, we give you a Necromancer. Yay, a song you can sing along to. Necromaaaaaancer! We had that bloody tune stuck in our heads for the rest of the day. So far with these guys, Venom Prison and Seething Akira the Sunday had started with a bang.” – Cackblabbeth

Wretched Soul tear up the Sophie Stage. A really impressive set and a huge crowd for this early in the day lapped up the brutal delivery of Chris Simmons. The day just gets better.” – Gigsoupmusic
