Tonight, in the almighty students union of the University of Manchester there are not one, not two, but three bands playing. So, populating the huge queue outside are fans for The Naked And Famous, White Noise Box and Turisas. It’s not hard to guess which fan is for which band, for between the terrified indie folk are big hairy metal men, wearing Viking helmets and furs, coated in war paint and wielding a plastic axe. You know you’re in for a good night when there are half naked Viking women in the crowd.
Date: November 5th, 2011
Venue: University, Leeds
Line-up: Humanfly, Cerebral Bore, A Forest Of Stars, Conan, Turisas, Evile, Altar Of Plagues, Amplifier, Godflesh, The Devin Townsend Project
The seventh running of the Damnation Festival falls on bonfire night this year, and there’s no shortage of metaphorical fireworks spread across three stages inside Leeds’ student union. A one day event, Damnation is very similar to Bloodstock in style, catering for the heavier side of metal with past headliners including Carcass and The Dillinger Escape Plan whilst also employing a number of post- bands like …And So I Watch You From Afar and Maybeshewill. It’s been a personal goal to make the 10 hour trip up from Plymouth for the last few years, and so it’s awfully lucky that it wasn’t a waste of time and in fact a very worthwhile endeavour.
