Orange Goblin Added to Line-up for Damnation 2014 Posted:24th July, 2014
English stoner rock giants ORANGE GOBLIN are the latest name to be added to the stunning 10th anniversary Damnation Festival bill.
They’ll be joined by black metal quartet WINTERFYLLETH and post-punk outfit OCTOBER FILE, with both bands airing material from their new albums at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 1.
The trio of new additions bolster an impressively eclectic line-up which already boasts Bolt Thrower’s only UK appearance, a Cannibal Corpse headline set and St Vitus performing ‘Born Too Late’ in full.
Orange Goblin said: “Over the last few years, Damnation has cemented itself into one of the UK’s leading metal festivals, so it is a great honour to be asked back to play for a second time.
“It is already a great line up of bands, and we can’t wait to be part of it.”
Winterfylleth added: “We are proud to announce we will be playing Damnation Festival once again in 2014.
“The response we had in 2012 was mind blowing and we hope to see you all there once again.
“Damnation is a festival we always attend as fans regardless of playing and a must for all serious metal fans.
“We have a new album out a few weeks before the festival, so will be playing some exclusive new material for the first time on the day.”
And October File said: “We are over the moon to be playing what is becoming one of the most important and special events in the UK.
“Damnation has worked hard to forge a name that is a must for fans and underground talent.”
The line-up for Damnation Festival so far includes: Bolt Thrower, Cannibal Corpse, Saint Vitus, Raging Speedhorn, Orange Goblin, Anaal Nathrakh, Ahab, Revocation, Solstafir, Winterfylleth, H A R K, October File, Bast, Atlantis and Corrupt Moral Altar, with many more bands to be announced across four stages.

German doom titans, AHAB, and Icelandic progressive metal outfit, SOLSTAFIR, are the latest names to be added to the tenth edition of Damnation Festival.
The headline set will be an exclusive UK performance by Ahab and the first the band have played outside London, while Solstafir arrive in for their debut UK festival show in support of their stunning new album Otta.
They will be joined at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 1, by Welsh heavy-rock trio H A R K, Dutch post-metallers ATLANTIS and London’s blackened doom three piece BAST.
Ahab said: “We’re delighted to celebrate our 10-year anniversary with the only Ahab UK Show 2014 at Damnation Festival.
“Headlining the doom stage is an honour and a great birthday present for us!”
Solstafir revealed they are “stoked” to be part of Damnation’s tenth anniversary show: “We picked Damnation Festival for our debut UK festival performance, after countless offers from other UK festival promoters, so what better way to celebrate Damnation’s 10th anniversary than joining us in Leeds?
“And you even get to see Bolt Thrower. We’re stoked”
JimBob of H A R K added: “Damnation has to be one the UK’s best festivals, so we’re over the moon to be added to such a great lineup. We’ve been taking ‘Crystalline’ out all across Europe since its release, and can’t wait to show the amazing Damnation crowd what we’ve got. This will be a great day.”
And Glison Hetinga of Atlantis said: “Playing Damnation Festival is something that we as a band always wanted to do. So being invited for this year’s edition is an great honour.”
Bast are also looking forward to playing Leeds for the first time.
The band said: “As patrons and fans of Damnation in previous years, it’s with particular honour and excitement that our inaugural performance in Leeds be at the festival’s 10th anniversary – being part of a line-up that’s already promising to be one of the most memorable in recent times.”
The latest additions bolster a stunning four-stage bill already brimming with some of finest music on the planet, including an exclusive Bolt Thrower UK show, Cannibal Corpse headline set, St Vitus playing ‘Born Too Late’ in full and the much-anticipated return of Anaal Nathrakh and Raging Speedhorn.
With ticket sales going at a rate not witnessed since 2008, Damnation Festival’s tenth anniversary promises to be an event to remember.
