US sludge outfit BLACK TUSK and English post-rock heroes MAYBESHEWILL have been added to Damnation Festival.

They’ll be joined at Leeds University Union on Saturday be a selection of some of the UK’s best rising death, doom and black talent; namely THE KING IS BLIND, WITCHSORROW and VOICES.

And making their debut UK performance will be Belgian black metal trio WIEGEDOOD

Voices said: “All that is extreme and cutting edge both from the underground to the big players in extreme music pass through this festival and Voices are privileged to play amongst so many great contemporaries.

“Voices will be sure to bring only the most uncompromising sonic attack to Damnation Festival, as this is a crowd that can handle the jealousy, the obsession and the decent into utter and complete darkness.”

And Witchsorrow added: “To be invited back to bring heaviness on Damnation once more is a very special thing for us.

“It’s a truly great thing to be counted among such fine bands, and to be able to bring doom armageddon to such a unique festival. Prepare for total doomination!”

The six additions bolster a richly diverse four-stage bill which already boasts At The Gates, High on Fire, Mono, Asphyx, Amenra, Solstafir, Altar of Plagues, The Ocean, Vreid, Keep of Kalessin, 40 Watt Sun, Oathbreaker and The Wounded Kings.
