EXTREME metallers GOREROTTED head up the latest batch of bands announced for the maiden Damnation Festival. The self proclaimed “obscene purveyors of gore and filth” join a powerful bill which boasts a ferocious mix of talent, from death to good old fashion power metal. The nasty looking six-piece will tear up the Satan-sponsored Music Box Stage with live favourites CONQUEST OF STEEL.

Goth fans are in for a treat with symphonic metallers MERCURY RAIN playing Damnation before setting off on a European tour with Therion and Tristania in November. And to make sure proceedings are opened in suitable style, Wakefield’s finest extreme five piece, NAILED, and death metal upstarts DAWN OF CHAOS will travel from the North East to share their hatred with the locals.
For those who prefer straight up, clean-cut, no-nonsense metal, the Jilly’s Stage will host a sterling line up which already sees two of the finest UK live acts PANIC CELL and FOURWAYKILL primed and ready.

The finest hardcore Manchester has to offer; ALLERJEN, will open the day, before making way for Essex’s sublime FOREVER NEVER, who will no doubt be gracing much bigger stages across the UK before long.

The latest addition are a major scoop for the festival which started on the threads of a music message board in December last year. And with two headliners and more top slots still to be to be filled Damnation’s inaugural year promises to be a memorable one.

A spokesman for the festival said: “It’s been an insane few months from having an novel idea for a ‘Pit In The Park’ with a handful of small bands to what Damnation Festival has mutated into.
“Landing Gorerotted and thrashing out deals with some of the bands we hope to announce in the near future has been absolutely unbelievable.

“We would have laughed at such a suggestion back in December but things have really taken off in our first year and we’ve got the fingers crossed that we can build on a successful debut.

“We go on about Damnation being a festival ‘by the fans for the fans’ like some sort of Government advertising spin-doctor but in our case it is true; our name, venue, artwork and booked bands have all been influenced by the strong on-line community we have and hopefully Damnation will prove to be a event that both ourselves and our friends deserve.”

*Damnation Festival will be held at Jilly’s Rockworld, Manchester, on Sunday October 16.
Tickets go on sale through Ticketline www.ticketline.co.uk from Monday, April 18th, priced £13 plus booking fee.
