Earlier this week, Damnation Festival announced Hawk Eyes, Ravens Creed and The Atrocity Exhibit as the final three bands for their 2012 line-up, and my, what a killer line-up it is too. Headed up by Dorset doom overlords, Electric Wizard, this year’s Damnation Festival also sees Pig Destroyer make their first return to the UK in eight years – why the hell haven’t you bought a ticket already? If you have bought a ticket already: well done. You know the score.
If for some reason just reading the insane line-up hasn’t sold you on this year’s Damnation, we’ve gone and knocked together a Spotify Slaylist of most of the bands playing (damn you, 40 Watt Sun, you’re just too kvlt for Spotify) that should sell the rest of you on why you need to be at the UK’s heaviest winter shindig.
Spotify is available to most of Western Europe, the USA, Australia and New Zealand for free – though obviously you’re better off shelling out either £5 or £10 a month for one of Spotify’s premium packages, as then you can listen to our Slaylists without having them interrupted by adverts. For our readers in countries not currently serviced by Spotify….sorry. You’ll just have to get on a plane and come to Damnation Festival to enjoy all these bands in quick succession.
Tickets are still available for this year’s Damnation Festival – which boasts a line-up including Electric Wizard, Pig Destroyer, Primordial, My Dying Bride, Aura Noir, Textures, Bossk, Ravens Creedm Gama Bomb, 40 Watt Sun, Wodensthrone, Extreme Noise Terror, Winterfylleth, Vreid, Hang The Bastard, Hawk Eyes, Blacklisters, The Atrocity Exhibit, Devil Sold His Soul, Belphegor, Amenra, Maybeshewill, and Witchsorrow on the bill of this year’s festival. Tickets will only set you back £32 (plus all the usual fees). As usual, the festival takes place in the fetid labyrinth that is Leeds University’s Student Union, and this year will take place on Saturday 03 November.
