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.

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
