Damnation Festival 2014 Main Stage preview

Damnation Festival 2014

In under 2 weeks time Bolt Thrower are playing Leeds.  BOLT THROWWWWEEEERRRRRR. Apparently some other bands are playing but personally I'd pay £36 to see Bolt Thrower any day of the week, no support required. Seriously why has Damnation not sold out already, shame on you UK! Let's face it if you don't like Bolt Thrower you are false. In 10 years time you're gonna look back and wonder why on earth you liked Black Veil Brides and why the hell you didn't go and see Bolt Thrower? In the first of our Damnation previews we will run down all the awesome bands that are playing on the Main Stage, you should know them all but just in case...

Killtown Festival 2014 preview

Killtown festival line up 2014 copenhagen denmark

The last EVER Killtown Festival takes place in Copenhagen in 3 weeks time on 5th-7th September with a warm up show on the 4th September, and just LOOK AT THAT LINE UP!! 

Metalgigs is not affiliated with Killtown in anyway, but having been before I can say it was one of the best metal events i've ever been to. I would hate for people to miss out on going when this year's edition is the last one that will ever take place. The festival is so good: a small venue, great sound, no backstage, cheap beer, cheap food, free film showings, (lots) of record stalls and bands manning their own merch, and i'll say it again LOOK AT THAT LINE UP...
