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...

As if Bolt Thrower wasn't really enough to buy a ticket (and Saint Vitus playing Born too late!) the festival have today announced German doom masters Ahab and anyone who saw their headlining set at Doom over London III in 2012 will attest they CRUSH live! Also added today are Iceland's finest Solstafir who will be making their UK festival debut, their new album Otta is due out in...

As mentioned on our facebook page earlier today Bolt Thrower have been announced as the headliners for Damnation Festival 2014 taking place at Leeds University Union on 1st November 2014.
Vocalist Karl Willetts said: "Well, we always knew if we were ever going to play a festival in the UK, it would be Damnation Festival; as we've only heard good things about it from mates who've been, and other bands who've played it."
"So we’re chuffed our only UK show of 2014 - and the foreseeable future - will be Damnation’s 10th Anniversary Bash… Grind on.”
This year marks the 10th anniversary...
OK enough already Damnation!! As if the line up wasn't already pretty darn tasty the fesitval have just announced 6 new bands in the form of melodic doom act Katatonia, Gorgoroth's re-incarnation in the form of God Seed, Year Of No Light, Shining and Mourning Beloveth.
Katatonia will be playing 'Viva Emptiness' in it's entirety, Anders Nystrom, said: "Since it looks like November will bring us Damnation, we're absolutely certain there'll be some Swedish export of atmospheric dark metal coming your way with it! We couldn't be more psyched to celebrate our 'Viva Emptiness' album anniversary at a festival we never got to play before. So Leeds, join us and be damned!".
In an interesting turn of events due to a...
