Bloodstock LIVE // SHRAPNEL // Sophie Lancaster Stage
Welcome to the PALACE FOR THE INSANE!
With SHRAPNEL’s newest album, the band have released one of the best thrash albums of the modern era, and a contender for AOTY. Produced by Sam Turbitt (Unfathomable Ruination), and with artwork from the legendary Costin Chioreanu (Grave, Ghost, Arch Enemy, and Entombed AD), the band have taken a huge step towards becoming a leading light in modern metal. The album combines classic, crunching, old-school riffs with modern technicality and state-of-the-art song-writing.
Previous albums The Virus Conspires (2014) and Raised On Decay (2017) were produced by metal mastermind Russ Russell (At The Gates, Napalm Death, The Haunted, and Evile) and received a massive response from fans. The band’s growing fan base saw them tour with bands such as Destruction, Overkill, and Xentrix, and play shows with Exodus, Death Angel, and Sacred Reich among countless others. Both records saw the band collaborate with world-renowned artist Eliran Kantor (Testament, Sodom, Soulfly, Hate Eternal, and Havok).
In 2019 SHRAPNEL teamed up with legendary producer Scott Atkins (Stampin’ Ground, Gama Bomb, Vader, and Sylosis) to record an anniversary EP ‘Decade Of Decimation’. The EP celebrated the band’s history by re-recording three songs from their out-of-print debut release, plus a brand new song ‘Live Vindictive’. The band spent summer 2019 touring with Swedish madmen Wolf, as well as Gama Bomb.
With PALACE FOR THE INSANE the band are ready to take thrash to new territory, and bulldoze their way around the world with their devastating live show throughout 2021-2022.
