As Bloodstock gets ever closer MetalMouth chatted to brillianty named Cosmic Vortex of Doom (CVOD) for a bite sized pre festival interview:
How did you choose your bands name?
Walking through the park in our local village, we stumbled across a quiet location, where we stopped, for a smoke. Inspired by said smoke, we each picked a word and there you have it.
What’s the most difficult thing you encounter as an emerging band, and how have you overcome it?
Being taken seriously and we’re still trying to overcome this.
How would you describe the Cosmic Vortex of Doom‘s sound?
A groovy, sludgy, doomy, heavy band that just likes to have a good time.
How did you get to be a part of the festival? (if through Metal to The Masses which area?)
By submitting a CD to the judging panel.
What are the nerves like right now?
To be honest, we’re so focussed building a set for the festival that we haven’t really considered our nerves…ask us on the day =)
Is this your biggest ever audience/first festival appearance?
We have played the acoustic stage in the past but we are hoping this will be a bigger audience.
What bands are you most looking forward to seeing at Bloodstock?
Crowbar, Viking Skull, Machine Head, Corrosion of Conformity, Sepultura and Orange Goblin.
Are there any other up and coming bands out there you would recommend keeping an eye on right now?
A Thousand Enemies, Blynd, Gone til Winter, Rannoch, Betraeus, Cambion, Internal Conflict.
Do you have any funny stories from your route to Bloodstock (or any previous times that you have been to the festival) that you would like to share with the MetalMouth readers?
I think there are plenty of stories but I don’t think we can remember any of them due to the alcohol intake
Are there any messages that you would like to pass on to your fans?
Turn up, smoke up, drink up and The Cosmic Vortex of Doom up!!
THE COSMIC VORTEX OF DOOM are playing the Bloodstock Festival on Saturday 11th on the New Blood Stage
