Jack Gunner - 06 September 2011
Swedish doom metal trio Grand Magus have been confirmed
to play the Jagermeister Stage, adding to a line-up featuring exclusive UK sets from Polish death-metal act
Decapitated and Ulver,
as well as Swedish battle-metal pioneers Turisas and a headlining
performance from Devin Townsend Project.
Damnation Festival 2011, now in its seventh year, will also host numerous home-grown metal bands, with Liverpool's Conan and Scotland's Cerebral Bore joining Evile and Godflesh. Local Leeds acts Humanfly and A Forest of Stars have also been added to the line-up along with Nottingham prog-rockers Illuminatus and Hereford's Talons.
Among the other acts already confirmed to be playing Damnation Festival 2011 are God is an Astronaut, A Fear of Plagues, Amplifer, Cthtonic, and A Man Called Catten performing 'Medulla Nocte'.
Damnation Festival will take place at Leeds University Union on November 5 2011.
Festival organiser Gavin McInally comments:
"It's fantastic to be able to round off what we consider to be the best line-up Damnation Festival has ever put together with a highly sought after Grand Magus performance and a pick of the finest underground bands the UK has to offer, across a spectrum of genres.”
