With Damnation Festival 2012 a mere three weeks away, Hugh and Tom blast through every band on the line-up of the UK’s heaviest Winter festival, rating and slating as they go.
Vreid is a black metal band from Sogndal, Norway.
After the tragic death of Valfar in January 2004, some of the Windir members decided to end Windir, and put their energy into other projects.
Hváll formed a new band, called Vreid. Vreid is a Norwegian word for wrath. Vreid consists of the 3 Windir members Hváll (bass), Steingrim (drums), Sture (vocals/guitar) and a new guitarist named Ese. Ese has been a close friend of the Vreid members for years, and he was co-engineer on Windir's Likferd album. Read more on Last.fm
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.
Right, that’s it – that’s you lot. Damnation Festival have completed the line-up for their 2012 festival tonight by confirming the opening acts for all three of the festival’s stages – The Atrocity Exhibit on the Terrorizer stage, Hawk Eyes on the Jägermeister stage, and Ravens Creed on the Eyesore.
Damnation Festival have added four more bands for their 2012 line-up. Heading up today’s announcements are controversial British black metallers Winterfylleth, Norwegian black metallers Vreid, hardcore-meets-doom mob Hang The Bastard, and MadAsFuckAndGetADescriptionWithoutFullStops Leeds-types, Blacklisters.
