IRISH pagan metal masters PRIMORDIAL will return to UK soil for an exclusive appearance at Damnation Festival.
They will be joined at the three-stage metal behemoth in Leeds by the much anticipated return of BOSSK and Dutch tech purveyors TEXTURES.
The latest additions bolster a bill which already boasts Electric Wizard, My Dying Bride, Pig Destroyer, Aura Noir, Gama Bomb and 40 Watt Sun for the eighth annual event, taking place at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 3, 2012.
Commenting on their return to England, Primordial vocalist Alan Averill said: “Finally we are confirmed for Damnation Festival this year.
“After several years in the wilderness and not playing in the UK it really feels over the last few years we have reconnected with playing in the UK.
“This is the place we cut our teeth after all, way back in the mists of time. It feels like payback. See you all at Damnation!”
Textures’ Jochem Jacobs added: “We are really excited to play at Damnation Festival – and since it’s not open air the roof will come down with a million tons of metal!”
And post-sludge stalwarts Bossk are looking forward to riff-filled day of Damnation.
The band said: “All of us are very excited to be part of this years Damnation Festival!
“It’s been a long time since we played in Leeds, and this will be the first time we play there since reforming.
“We are gonna rent more lights, bring more smoke, and more riffs for this show.
“It will be the first time we play the new track Pick Up Artist live. Watch Electric Wizard and follow the smoke to the riff filled land.”
