Austrian death metal outfit Belphegor have been confirmed to play their only UK show at Damnation Festival later this year. The band will be playing the Terrorizer Stage.

Belphegor’s Helmuth said: “We are looking forward to shredding the mighty land of NWOBHM, again. It’s always a pleasure and an intense ritualistic raid experience to bring our chaos sound to the UK. Hail Damnation! Hail Death!

Joining Belphegor on the Terrorizer Stage, as announced today by Damnation Festival, will be crust punk pioneers Extreme Noise Terror and British black metal unit Wodensthrone.

Wodensthrone guitarist/vocalist Rædwalh said: “Wodensthrone are very pleased to have been invited to play Damnation Festival; an event that we have seen grow from its inception in Manchester to one of the UK’s premier metal events. I fondly remember the early incarnations of the festival, so to see it grow to its current status is very encouraging. The already-confirmed lineup is extremely promising and for ourselves to be included in it is a humbling testament to this band’s perseverance. With our second album, Curse, now out on Candlelight Records, we are proudly raising the banner of UK Black Metal in 2012 and to be able to cap off a busy year with a Damnation appearance is an honour. Wæs thu hæl!

And completing Damnation’s announcement, progressive hardcore band Devil Sold His Soul will be hitting up the Jagermeister Stage with a new album to show case.

Devil Sold His Soul added: “We last played Damnation Festival back in 2008. It was hot, sweaty, loud and heavy and we loved every minute of it. We always enjoy playing in Leeds and the line-up this year looks incredible. We’ll have a new album out by then and can’t wait to play these new longs live – Bring it on Damnation.”

Announced so far for Damnation Festival 2012 is: Electric Wizard, My Dying Bride, Pig Destroyer, Belphegor, Primordial, Extreme Noise Terror, Textures, Devil Sold His Soul, Aura Noir, Gama Bomb, 40 Watt Sun and Wodensthrone.

Damnation line-up receives new additions

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on 2nd July 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

DM12_ano4a_500Metal Blade’s Irish pagan metal titans Primordial will return to UK soil for an exclusive appearance at Damnation Festival.

They will be joined at the three-stage behemoth metal festival in Leeds by the much anticipated return of Boskk and Dutch tech purveyors Textures.

The latest additions bolster a bill which already boasts the likes of Electric Wizard, My Dying Bride, Pig Destroyer, Aura Noir, Gama Bomb and 40 Watt Sun for the eighth annual event, taking place at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 3rd 2012.

Commenting on their return to England, Primordial vocalist Alan Averill said: “Finally we are confirmed for Damnation Festival this year. After several years in the wilderness and not playing in the UK it really feels over the last few years we have reconnected with playing in the UK. This is the place we cut our teeth after all, way back in the mists of time. It feels like payback. See you all at Damnation!”

Textures‘ Jochem Jacobs added: “We are really excited to play at Damnation Festival – and since it’s not open air the roof will come down with a million tons of metal!”

And post-sludge stalwarts Bossk are looking forward to riff-filled day of Damnation. The band said: “All of us are very excited to be part of this years Damnation Festival! It’s been a long time since we played in Leeds, and this will be the first time we play there since reforming. We are gonna rent more lights, bring more smoke, and more riffs for this show. It will be the first time we play the new track Pick Up Artist live. Watch Electric Wizard and follow the smoke to the riff filled land.”
