NORWEGIAN black metallers VREID and England’s WINTERFYLLETH will darken this year’s Damnation Festival, as they head up the latest acts confirmed to play the UK‘s finest day of extreme music.
London’s death n’ hardcore infusion HANG THE BASTARD and Leeds’ very own aural acid trip BLACKLISTERS also join the eclectic three-stage event which will be hosted in Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 3, 2012.
Vreid, Winterfylleth and Hang The Bastard all but complete a Terrorizer Stage line-up which already boasts Pig Destroyer, Belphegor, Aura Noir and Extreme Noise Terror, while the likes of Electric Wizard, My Dying Bride, Primordial, Gama Bomb, 40 Watt Sun and Textures will also perform over the day.

“We are proud to be part of such a strong line up of bands and to be playing at a festival which we have all been attending as fans for years. See you all in November!”
