The Berzerker and Ephel Duath Confirmed For Damnation Festival

THE BERZERKER and Italy's seminal EPHEL DUATH are set to reap extreme carnage on DAMNATION FESTIVAL in Manchester come October 15th 2006. They'll be joined by MADMAN IS ABSOLUTE and MAN MUST DIE on the phenomenal Terrorizer Stage - and with AXIS OF PERDITION already confirmed, the line-up is shaping up to be the UK's finest bill of extreme metal noise in 2006.

Having shed their gruesome face masks, The Berzerker are ready to show Manchester just how serious they are - expect punishing noise as Luke Kenny and co. bring their "World of Lies" album to life in a death metal frenzy that'll guarantee a "last man standing" mindset in the Damnation moshpit.

Blending, somehow perfectly, both jazz and black metal, Ephel Duath have for years delighted Italian home crowds and European metal fans alike - their addition, a UK festival exclusive, highlights the wide variety of extreme noise that Damnation aims to forcefully inject into Manchester's music scene come October 15th 2006.

Guitarist Davide Tiso says the band "invite Manchester to join the asynchronous dance."

Madman Is Absolute, meanwhile, promise "Full on pit mayhem orchestrated by four angry Scotsmen - Manchester will be reduced to ruins!" - a sentiment echoed by fellow countrymen Man Must Die, who simply said "Let's make this one festival to remember. You want extreme, you got it!"

While Satan's favourites do the dirty deed downstairs, the Jagermeister stage of Jilly's Rockworld will play host to STAMPIN' GROUND, BIOMECHANICAL, SEND MORE PARAMEDICS and MURDER ONE, along with serious UK talent in the shape of muscle monsters HEAD-ON, thrashers EVILE and London lads KINGSIZE BLUES.

Festival spokesman, Gavin McInally, said: "The Bezerker, Ephel Duath, Stampin' Ground, Murder One, Biomechanical, Send More Paramedics and both headliners still to be announced... no self-respecting metaller can afford to miss this feast of extreme music!"

TICKETS for the second installment of UK-focused metal will go on sale APRIL 3rd, priced £15, and will be available from Ticketline, Seetickets, and direct from Jilly's Rockworld and Music Box.
