Damnation Festival 2013
English extreme metal legends CARCASS will return to headline the ninth Damnation Festival for their only UK appearance following the release of their first album in 17 years.
The death and grind standard bearers have promised another historic set which will feature cult classics alongside unexpected old gems and brand new material when they take the stage at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 2, 2013.
And after helping to sell out Damnation Festival in advance back in 2008, guitarist Bill Steer is looking forward to performing to a packed house on their return to the event.
He said: “We’re very excited about the prospect of returning to Damnation Festival this year.
“Our appearance there in 2008 was a major highlight for us and this time around, people can expect to hear a fairly different Carcass set.
“The old favourites will be in there, of course, but we’re also planning to play a couple of the less obvious tracks from our past, as well as songs from the album we’ve just completed. Join us!”
With 22 more bands to be announced across three stages, festival director Gavin McInally, said fans can look forward to the melting pot of diverse styles of music Damnation Festival is known for from black metal to post-rock.
He added: “It was a coup to land the first UK Carcass show in 13 years in 2008 when fans snapped up every ticket going before we made it to the day itself and it’s another coup having the band return following the release of their first new album in 17 years.
“But even with the mighty Carcass topping the bill, we won’t be satisfied until we’ve pieced together a more challenging and brilliant day of music than the eight successful years we’ve already had the pleasure of hosting, so expect a lot more to come from 2013.”
Tickets for Damnation Festival 2013 are on sale now and will be held at last year’s price of £32 for a limited period.

Damnation Festival will proudly host two rare live outings this year, as extreme metal 'supergroup' VALLENFYRE and experimental rock ensemble CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX perform at the event.
They will be joined in Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 2, by Romanian progressive black metallers NEGURA BUNGET, English doom trio MOSS and the sonic assault of Paul Catten's THE SONTARAN EXPERIMENT.
Vallenfyre - featuring members of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and At The Gates - will play their only UK show of 2013 at Damnation Festival, which will also be their first appearance outside London.
Founding member and vocalist Greg Mackintosh said: "Since our first UK show last year at Boltfest, we have been looking to follow it up with a northern show.
"Being asked to play Damnation Festival provides us with the perfect opportunity. We are looking forward to spreading some filth and meeting up with some old compadres."
Negura Bunget will also play the festival as an exclusive date.
Drummer Negru said: "Damnation is going to be our one and only UK concert in 2013 so we will definitely make it count!
"Be prepared for a very special Negura Bunget performance, with one of a kind exclusive previews."
And doom laden Moss also promised to make a lasting impression, as the band said: "It's been over 10 years since we last played in the north, in a squat in Manchester in front of eight people.
"So we look forward to finally bringing our doom and gloom back to the northern wastes at Damnation.
"You are in for a ****ing horrible night."
Damnation veteran Paul Catten, added: "After waiting patiently for the Sontaran's turn to play my favourite festival, the moment has arrived finally.
"Expect large amounts of volume, a large slab of doom, blastbeats and electronic noises to batter you from all angles.
"My fourth time at Damnation in four different bands, but nothing will be as painful as what we have in store this time."
Tickets for Damnation Festival 2013 are on sale now and will be held at last year’s price of £32 until this Sunday, March 31 .

SWEDISH post-metal masters CULT OF LUNA have promised a "crushing wall of sound and light" after being confirmed to headline a stage at Damnation Festival 2013.
They will be joined at the ninth instalment of the UK's finest day of metal, hosted at Leeds University Union, on Saturday, November 2, by Liverpool's crossover thrashers SSS and London's black metal quartet VOICES.
The trio bolster an eclectic bill which already includes Carcass, Crippled Black Phoenix and Moss as well as exclusive UK shows by Negura Bunget and Vallenfyre.
Cult of Luna said: "Cult of Luna return to the UK after a sell out show at London's Garage in January.
"The band will fly in for a standalone performance as they continue promoting the Fritz Lang 'Metropolis' inspired 'Vertikal', their first album in over 5 years.
"Expect a heavy, crushing and richly textured wall of sound and light to bring Damnation to a close in spectacular fashion."
SSS front man Foxy is looking forward to taking the Jagermeister Stage for a full thrash assault.
He said: "It's a great honour to be asked back to Damnation Festival.
"We have a block of new noise to from our forthcoming LP to let loose on the unsuspecting.
"Take a deep breath... once we start we don't stop!"
And Sam Loynes of Voices added: "We shall be bringing our exhibition of obsession to this year's Damnation Festival, alongside some truly exceptional bands.
"We plan to deliver only the most vividly extreme of music for this opportunity we have been offered.
"It's an honour to play the UK's leading extreme music festival."
After announcing their spilt, The Sontaran Experiment will no longer play the festival.
