Even at this early stage of announcements, DAMNATION FESTIVAL the place to be in 2013 for the ultimate in extreme delights. Leeds Student Union on November 2nd, destined to constitute one deep dark abyss of immoral, yet thoroughly compelling metal as another three bands are announced including the incredible Cult of Luna and SSS.

Main stage headliners this year, legendary Liverpudlian Grindcore merchants Carcass, bringing their grotesque visions to the fore once more, returning to a festival they tore apart in 2008.

Cult of Luna, also headlining a stage, commented, "Expect a heavy, crushing and richly textured wall of sound and light to bring Damnation to a close in spectacular fashion."

Super group Vallenfyre  featuring members of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and At The Gates play their only UK show of 2013, providing sonic Death of the most monstrous proportions.

Rejoice in the atmospheric blackness created by Romanian Progressive Black metallers Negura Bunget
also playing an exclusive UK show at Damnation Festival this year.

Crippled Black Phoenix will take the stage, beguiling their audience with beautifully understated, swirlingly intricate prog tendencies

Conversely Moss  deliver some of the most darkly distorted Doom encrusted brilliance......enter at your peril.

SSS (Short Sharp Shock) bring their blistering hardcore thrash to the Jaegermeister Stage.

Keep your eyes peeled, as more bands are announced, I'll be keeping you updated.
