Were Aura Noir merely “okay” at this year’s Damnation Festival, or were we just too drunk by this point?
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 announced their main stage headliners for 2012 – the Dorset doom overlords, Electric Wizard. It’ll be the first time since 2009 that the four-piece have played Damnation, and the first time they’ll have played the top spot at the UK’s heaviest all-dayer – not to mention a UK exclusive show for 2012.
Out To Die
26 March 2012
“The ugliest band is the world is back!” screams the sticker on the front of Aura Noir’s latest, Out To Die. Seems a little mean. Agressor and chums may not be gracing the cover of Men’s Health any time soon, but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen some dudes in folk bands who are far more facially unfortunate.
