More Info On Ohio's Dwell In Darkness Festival

June 10th-11th will mark the return of the nationally acclaimed 'Dwell in Darkness' festival that is set to bring a dark cloud over the city of Dayton, Ohio for two straight days. In a waning metal scene, SMNnews.com in conjunction with JagerMeister, and The End Records will be breathing new life back into Dayton, Ohio for a two day metal extravaganza that will feature a myriad of international, national, regional, and local bands.

The 2 days of pure metal fury will be unleashed at Elbos, a premiere Dayton venue that will be housing most diverse festival that North America has to offer. Located in the heart of the "Oregon District", Elbos features an outdoor patio, pool tables, vendorville and merch areas, and a full bar.

Headlining Day One (June 10th) of Dwell in Darkness II, all the way from Norway will be Century Media Records' mighty Extol. The band will be performing in support of their May 3rd release "Blueprint Dives" as they trek across North America. Co-headlining with Extol will be Listenable Records' road-warriors Incantation who will be making a special one-off appearance before heading out on a full US tour with Hate Eternal. Like a turd in your easter basket, Friday's lineup wouldn't be complete without the almighty grindcore quartet of Circle of Dead Children. Day one of terror continues with the addition of the incredibly brutal black metal stalwarts Summon, regional powerhouses Estuary, and Cleopatra Records artists Wehrwolfe. Also flying in from Norway to make a rare one off US performance, will be up and coming death metallers Judas Goat. Fusing the best of the mid-west and east coast with a flavorful touch of European metal delight, June 10th is set to make metal history in Dayton, Ohio. Throcult will also be making there way across a few states to debut some new material for all to see and hear. On top of that…preparing to send a bold, powerful statement to their local metal community, rounding out the day's lineup will be Blackmetal.com artists Sin Origin, regionals Black Trinity and Skullcap, New York's Fecal Corpse, Kansas Metal Awards winners Evermourn, Kentucky's Day I Dread, West Virginia's Premature Burial, and locals Elusive Travel.

If Friday wasn't enough - prepare for the unstoppable lineup of Saturday (June 11th)…Headlining the 2nd day of this amazing event will be the insane, intense, musical powerhouses who recently inked a deal with TVT Records and go by the name of Bobaflex. Known for their brutal live show, and onstage intensity, the band will be taking time out of the studio to headline this prestigious Ohio event - so start preparing yourself. Adding to the tally of the east coast's biggest names in rock and metal that will be appearing at Dwell in Darkness II is Artemis Records' Dog Fashion Disco. DFD will be making a special one off appearance to take to the stage in Dayton, Ohio as they continue to work on their major label debut. Century Media's finest Canadian act, progressive-melodic-death metallers Into Eternity as well as one of Nuclear Blast Records latest signings All Shall Perish will be storming the front, part of an all out main stage Ohioan aural assault.

Also diverging away from their regular touring schedule, from the white-hot West Coast label, Prosthetic Records (Lamb of God, All that Remains, Himsa, etc.), will be one of West Virginia's most merciless and forthright acts - Byzantine. Alas, what would a true festival be without a bit of female spice? Broadzilla, who have toured the world, will also be stopping by to tear the house down. Jetting over from Illinois, with bottles of Jager in hand, and plenty of free merch, will be Metal Blade Records artists and rock and roll virtuosos the Heavils - expect a set-time full of surprises! The pit doesn't stop there. Upping the ante and flying in from New York City to wreak havoc upon the city of Dayton, a band who will be making their second Dwell in Darkness appearance, is former Century Media/Kingfisher Records hardcore artists 4 in tha Chamber. Also making the trip from the East Coast, a group who has taken to the stage at European Festivals such as Wacken, and have toured relentlessly all over Germany, will be Twisted Tower Dire. Other namesakes rounding out the billing for Saturday, June 11th will be doomsters Avernus, who recently inked a deal with Flood the Earth Records, Lifeforce Records' Hell Within, New York City's Mr. Bungle Fast Eddie, as well as, A Waking Nightmare, The Messiah Complex, Rev. 9, Project 44, Jackalopes, I Died Trying, Morphic Resonance, Splitt, Caje, Lowchain, Ludavico Technique, Seconds from Disaster, Enslaved to Mercy, South Gate, Regiment, Dissonant Hatred, Krimson Reign, Needless Guilt, Rewind, Diskreet, Metaphysical, Woe of Tyrants and Fourty Tour.

This two day phenomenon, that features artists from Ferret Records, Metal Blade Records, Century Media Records, Prosthetic Records, Cleopatra Records, TVT Records, Listenable Records, and Lifeforce Records, with bands coming in from Norway, Pennsylvania, Kansas, West Virginia, California, Illinois, Kentucky, and New York. The show will ONLY cost a mere $15 dollars a day, with two-day passes running for a discounted rate at $27. Bringing in genres of music from all across the world, and from all across the United States, Dwell in Darkness II provides the best in hardcore, metal core, heavy metal, black metal, death metal, doom, industrial, and much, much more all for the cost of a 3 band club show.

There will also be hourly giveaways, raffles, contests, festival shirts, merch booths, autograph sessions with performing artists, vendorville areas, and much, much more. Also on hand to complete your two days of metal will be SMNnews.com and SMN Promotions Staff, who will be flying in to meet and greet fans, and MC the event. Discounted hotels rates are available for traveling parties through the Red Roof Inn in Miamisburg, Ohio @ 937-866-0705 - just mention the group name of 'Dwell'!
