Another five acts have been confirmed for 2015’s Sweden Rock Festival including Children of Bodom, Mother’s Finest, ELP, My Dying Bride and Beastmilk.

Finnish metal band Children Of Bodom have not played in Sölvesborg since 2004, so it is about time for a return appearance by ace guitarist Alexi Laiho and his cohorts. The concert will be their only in Sweden next year.

The legendary funk rock band Mother’s Finest played at the 2010 edition of the festival, but a big part of the audience missed it due to heavy rain. Now they will get another chance.

ELP, or Emerson, Lake & Palmer, is one of the biggest names in progressive rock history. Carl Palmer keeps the groups music alive with his Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy. They are known for their legendary shows and amazing energy!

Hard, doomy and gloomy goth metal will be on the menu when My Dying Bride, who have had a big part in shaping the genre since the early 90’s, come to Sölvesborg for the first time.

Beastmilk was formed in 2010 and gained cult status already as a demo act. Now they are one of the most talked about new rock bands in the world, and their sound has been compared to acts ranging from Roky Erickson to Misfits, Killing Joke, Joy Division and The Devil’s Blood. If you have not discovered them yet, now is the time!

Previously, 49 other acts have been announced, among them are Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Judas Priest, Slash, Toto and Backyard Babies. With another 35 acts are still to be announced, this lineup is going to be huge!
