More Bands Announced For Damnation Festival

Damnation Festival veterans Anaal Nathrakh will return to lay waste to Leeds this year for the sixth installment of the UK festival. They'll be joined by French experimental duo Alcest, the synth driven mathcore of Rolo Tomassi, and Fukpig, who make their Damnation debut after a performance at Deathfest earlier this year. The latest additions join the already confirmed The Dillinger Escape Plan and reformed Earthtone9 with many more bands to be announced across three stages.

Festival director Gavin McInally commented: "No band - not even the mighty Carcass - has been requested to return to Damnation Festival by the fans as often as Anaal Nathrakh so it's a pleasure, and a relief, to be able to make that happen. In contrast to the aural chaos of Nathrakh, Alcest will bring a touch of French sophistication to proceedings with their haunting, black metal inspired shoegaze. Rolo Tomassi are one of the rising stars of the current UK metal scene and it's great to be able to host their energetic live show this year. As for Fukpig, well the devastation at Deathfest is responsible for their return!"

Caos Emergente Festival Canceled

The 2010 edition of the Caos Emergente festival, which was set to take place from July 16th - 18th, has been canceled. The organizers of the festival issued the following statement about the cancellation:

"It is with great regret that for the first time we find ourselves forced to make a statement of such nature, so we thank all those who read this document, to convey this message to others as accurately as possible.

"During the last months we have worked very hard on this project, on its new configuration and logistics and in particular on the line up for the 2010 edition. This cancellation is obviously a huge frustration because of all the work invested, all the bands which were yet to be announced, everyone involved, the long hours spent, the thousands of euros hopelessly lost and, above all, the disappointment to the thousands of followers of the festival.

"At the end of 2009, after a series of meetings held with the purpose of relocating the event, BigDog Productions was approached by Guilherme Pinto, developer and producer of Cellus Eventus resident in Vila Maior, in order to arrange a meeting with local political entities and possibly hold the event in that region.

Anaal Nathrakh Cancels Canadian Tour Dates

ANAAL NATHRAKH have posted the following update:

“Owing to circumstances not related to the band themselves and entirely outside of the band’s control, ANAAL NATHRAKH have been forced to pull out of their imminent Canadian shows at the 11th hour.

To reiterate – this was not down to the band themselves, and if there was anything that could have been done, believe us we’d have done it. Confirmation of this twist of fate’s dagger only came through 5 hours before we were due to go to the airport.

There is no reason why this should affect any other planned dates – ONLY THOSE IN CANADA. And rest assured, plans will be put in place for alternative Canadian shows as soon as possible.

We offer our sincerest regrets to anyone who was intending to be at the shows, which at the time of writing will be going ahead with the support bands playing at a reduced door price. We are royally pissed off about missing the shows, but sometimes events simply conspire against you. Which will make it all the sweeter when the time comes to make the trip to Canada and both band and fans are able to raise a middle finger to fate and grind its corpse under their heels.”

Mistress Call It A Day

Sludge-grind UK outfit MISTRESS and rock quintet EXPLODER have both decided to call it a day. The overlapping personnel involved in the two bands has been making music together in various forms for a number of years. Multi-instrumentalist Mick Kenney's side project FROST is also to be no more. Each of these projects has been successful in their own right; MISTRESS having produced four unique albums, appeared on BBC's "Never Mind The Buzzcocks" and toured with then-labelmates MUNICIPAL WASTE; FROST's LPs being described as "the albums MAYHEM should have made" by Kerrang! magazine and EXPLODER opening Bloodstock 2007 alongside former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade.

The clear-out will leave Kenney and MISTRESS vocalist Dave more free to concentrate on ANAAL NATHRAKH — who will be performing at the first ever Feto Obliteration Fest (London, UK), as well as at the Maryland Deathfest (USA) in May, and at Hellfest (France) in June. Guitarist Misery will be continue to play bass in the live line up of ANAAL NATHRAKH, and will also be working on a new yet-to-be named project. Mick also has a brand new band in the pipeline and claims it contains all elements of everything he has done in the past and more. Guitarist Drunk is currently rumored to be working with post-punk "forbidden lovers of the first whore" BEE STUNG LIPS. MISTRESS bassist/EXPLODER singer Dirty Von Donovan is as yet biding his time and oiling his biceps. Dave is also scheduled to be recording a new album with death metal veterans BENEDICTION very soon, with Mick lined up to produce.

The bands leave behind them a rich legacy of abject misery, self abuse, bleak obsession with evil and fist-in-the-air, pelvic rock.

Feto Obliteration Fest will take place on May 2 at the London Underworld, featuring ANAAL NATHRAKH, RAMESSES, THEOKTONY and DEADWEIGHT.
