    DAMNATION FESTIVAL is proud to announce experimental metallers JESU as the headliner of the devastatingly eclectic Rock Sound Stage.

    And the diverse bill will be round off by rising Belfast post-rock outfit AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR and England's brightest post-metal hope, RINOA.

    Jesu will top the bill which already includes This Will Destroy You, A Storm of Light, Minsk, Manatees and Stand-Up Guy.

    Rock Sound editor Darren Taylor said: “We’re psyched about this year’s line-up on the Rock Sound stage – Damnation and Rock Sound have brought together some of the most innovative and exciting bands you’ll see playing on the same stage.

    "We’ve been long-term fans of Jesu, so it’s an honour to have them headline our stage this year.”

    Festival Director Gavin McInally added: "It's no secret we've wanted Jesu at Damnation for years so it's fitting that they are finally available to headline our strongest yet Rock Sound stage which is crammed with experimental rock and metal talent.

    "Some fans don't believe post-rock has a place at a metal event but the hundreds of ticket buyers who packed in to watch the likes of *Shels, Latitudes and Moutains Becames Machines last year felt otherwise so we're delighted to be able to push the envelope further this year.

    "With this year's solid line-up the Rock Sound Stage is an event in its own right and we're sure that for many fans it will be the place to be all day."

    Damnation Festival will take place at Leeds University Union, on Saturday, October 24, 2009.
    The line-up so far is: Therapy?, Destruction, Jesu, Rotting Christ, This Will Destroy You, Akercocke, A Storm of Light, Mistress, Negura Bunget, Minsk, Extreme Noise Terror, Manatees, And So I Watch You From Afar, Charger, Stand-Up Guy and Rinoa with more bands to be announced.

    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.

    Jesus, those FFVIII freaks are everywhere. Would you go as far as calling your band Rinoa?

    DORSET doom heavyweights ELECTRIC WIZARD will level the Jagermeister Stage at this year's Damnation Festival.

    And the UK standard-bearers of crushing, down-tempo metal will be joined by the Conan-inspired slabs of doom delivered by Indianapolis' GATES OF SLUMBER.

    The skull-scrapingly heavy combo are added to a bill which already includes Therapy?, Destruction, Jesu, Rotting Christ and Akercocke across three stages which will take place at Leeds University Union on Saturday, October 24.

    Festival director Gavin McInally said: "From the very first Damnation Festival, Electric Wizard have been continually requested by the fans and after five years of borderline harassment, we're delighted that they'll finally play what promises to be a bowel shuddering set.

    "It's also a pleasure to host the return to UK soil of Gates Of Slumber who'll bring their old-school crushing doom offerings to the Terrorizer Stage."

    Damnation Festival will take place at Leeds University Union, on Saturday, October 24, 2009.
    The line-up so far is: Therapy?, Destruction, Electric Wizard, Jesu, Rotting Christ, This Will Destroy You, Akercocke, A Storm of Light, Mistress, Negura Bunget, Minsk, Extreme Noise Terror, Manatees, Gates of Slumber, And So I Watch You From Afar, Charger, Stand-Up Guy and Rinoa with more bands to be announced.

    GRINDCORE supergroup LOCK UP will headline this year's Terrorizer Stage in what will be their only show of 2009 and likely the band's last ever live appearance.

    The almost mythical extreme metal behemoth - which will feature At The Gates frontman Tomas Lindberg, Anton Resisenegger of Pentagram and Criminal on guitar, Napalm Death bassist Shane Embury and ex-Dimmu Borgir and Testament drummer Nick Barker - will perform live in the UK for the first time in almost ten years.

    And Shane Embury revealed the one-off show is set to be the last time they ever take the stage together.

    He said: "LOCK UP has not played the UK since the summer of 2000 when we did a small tour with Poland's Decapitated - in fact the band has only ever done around 15 shows since we formed ten years ago.

    "We have had so many requests over the years from fans to play again that we thought 'let's get off our arses and do this one last time'.

    "So our appearance at this years Damnation Festival will be a total "7 Churches on vinyl or fuck off!" exclusive show.

    "This may well be the last show the band plays, ever, so don't miss out on what I hope will be a night to be remembered!"

    Nick Barker added: "Damnation will also mark the live debut of new guitarist Anton Resenegger from the Chilean underground death metal legends Pentagram and Anglo/Chilean death/thrash band Criminal.

    "Resisenegger replaces the late Jesse Pintado who sadly passed away in August 2006."

    Damnation Festival will take place at Leeds University Union, on Saturday, October 24, 2009.

    The line-up so far is: Lock Up, Therapy?, Destruction, Electric Wizard, Jesu, Rotting Christ, This Will Destroy You, Akercocke, A Storm of Light, Mistress, Negura Bunget, Minsk, Extreme Noise Terror, Manatees, Gates of Slumber, And So I Watch You From Afar, Charger, Stand-Up Guy and Rinoa with more bands to be announced.

    Unless the Jagerstage has an awesome headliner I'll see Jesu. :)

    The 1st band will be on at approx 1pm and the Jager stage will open later on.
    I'll speak to the ticket outlets and make sure they rectify the information on tickets and in the confirmation e-mails.
