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.
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.
Hevy Festival have made their second line-up announcement for 2012, adding nineteen more bands to their bill- including the identity of their Sunday night headliner: Descendents. Not only will the legendary punk band be headlining the punk and hardcore fest, but it’ll be the only UK festival show they’ll be playing all year.
