"We're extremely happy to announce that we will be appearing at the Days Of The Doomed 2 festival in June 2012! We'd actually been in discussions with Mike even prior to the first edition, so this has been a long time coming indeed! While there was a time when we faced some challenges in making this happen, ultimately the planets have aligned! We look forward to sharing the stage with all of our old friends and bringing the music of While Heaven Wept to the midwest for the first time! Don't miss this event as it is the culmination of many years of 'homegrown' Doom Metal events in the USA reaching a level of maturity and passion previously unseen!"
The organizers of the festival also commented:
"After months of negotiations, and many enjoyable conversations with Tom Phillips himself, I am extremely proud to be bringing the epic music of While Heaven Wept to Wisconsin and the midwest for the very first time! You do not want to miss this rare opportunity to see While Heaven Wept perform on Day #2 of Days Of The Doomed Fest II!
"I also have the pleasure of announcing that the masters of heaviness and volume known as SOLACE will also be making the trek to Days Of The Doomed Fest II! Prepare for ear damage!!! Want more? Back by popular demand! Rochester NY doom mongers ORODRUIN will be returning to pummel all of you! More...
RETRO GRAVE, featuring original and former TROUBLE drummer Jeff "Oly" Olson, has been confirmed for the Days Of The Doomed Fest, set to take place June 17-18, 2011 at The P.L.A.V. in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
Commented Olson: "I'm very excited to play for our friends in the mid west for the Days Of The Doom Fest. It's going to be great to perform on stage again. I've missed that! In addition, because I live in southern Maine, I have not yet had the chance to see my longtime TROUBLE friends, Eric Wagner and Ron Holzner perform with their new bands, BLACKFINGER and EARTHEN GRAVE. I'm looking forward to see them again as well as the latest up and coming bands in the doom scene. Stay tuned for RETRO GRAVE's debut show to be held in New York City soon with my friends from GNAW."
