    FANS' favourites ENTOMBED and AKERCOCKE will terrorise Damnation Festival after being voted the top two acts to return to UK's finest metal event.

    The show will mark a UK Exclusive date for Swedish death 'n' roll titans Entombed who headlined the Terrorizer Stage at the inaugural Damnation Festival in 2005.

    While the UK's finest progressive death purveyors Akercocke return after topping the same stage in Manchester in 2006.

    Festival director Gavin McInally said: "It's always a coup to land great bands but when they are the bands the fans have requested time and time again and even voted for, it's all the more satisfying to have them back.

    "Entombed were phenomenal in our first year and for many Akercocke were the band of the day in 2006 so there's no doubt they'll be sterling additions to the fifth Damnation Festival."

    Bands already confirmed for Damnation Festival 2009 - which will take place in Leeds University Union on Saturday, October 24 - include: Therapy? Rotting Christ, Mistress, This Will Destroy You, A Storm of Light, Extreme Noise Terror, Minsk and Stand-Up Guy.

    Tickets are on sale now priced at £29.50 from http://www.leedstickets.com/ , http://www.ticketline.co.uk/ and http://www.seetickets.co.uk/
    Tickets are also on sale in Leeds at stores including Crash and Jumbo.

    I saw Akercocke a month ago. Don't fancy paying £30 to see them. :lol:

    Atmospheric rock veterans ANATHEMA will add a touch of class to this year's DAMNATION FESTIVAL while UK sludge standard bearers MANATEES will guarantee the bill remains heavier than a skip full of bricks.

    Liverpool's Anathema - who have just completed a Latin America tour in support of their latest release 'Hindsight' - will make their long-awaited debut at the UK's finest metal event when they take to the Jagermeister Stage in Leeds on Saturday, October 24, 2009.

    For those less in favour of soothing melodies there's a prospect of Manatees' powerful, raw, progressive sludge to contend with following the release of their jaw-dropping 'Icarus, The Sunclimber' album.

    Festival Director Gavin McInally said: "Unsurprisingly, Anathema are a much sought-after band and we're delighted that they agreed to play Damnation this year.

    "With Therapy? already confirmed for the Jagermeister Stage it's a great double-billing for our heavy rock fans who support the event.

    "While Manatees will bring to the mix their blend of soul-crushing progressive sludge in what is shaping up to be our most eclectic line-up yet."

    Damnation Festival will take place on Saturday, October 24 at Leeds University Union.

    Bands already confirmed for the event are: Therapy? Anathema, Entombed, Rotting Christ, Mistress, This Will Destroy You, A Storm of Light, Extreme Noise Terror, Minsk, Manatees, Stand-Up Guy.

    Headliners and more bands to be announced.

    Tickets are priced at £29.50 (stbf) and available from http://www.leedstickets.com/ , http://www.ticketline.co.uk/ and http://www.seetickets.co.uk/
    Tickets are also on sale in Leeds at stores including Crash and Jumbo.
