    English extreme metal legends CARCASS will return to headline the ninth Damnation Festival for their only UK appearance following the release of their first album in 17 years.

    The death and grind standard bearers have promised another historic set which will feature cult classics alongside unexpected old gems and brand new material when they take the stage at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 2, 2013.

    And after helping to sell out Damnation Festival in advance back in 2008, guitarist Bill Steer is looking forward to performing to a packed house on their return to the event.

    He said: “We’re very excited about the prospect of returning to Damnation Festival this year.

    “Our appearance there in 2008 was a major highlight for us and this time around, people can expect to hear a fairly different Carcass set.

    “The old favourites will be in there, of course, but we’re also planning to play a couple of the less obvious tracks from our past, as well as songs from the album we’ve just completed. Join us!”

    With 22 more bands to be announced across three stages, festival director Gavin McInally, said fans can look forward to the melting pot of diverse styles of music Damnation Festival is known for from black metal to post-rock.

    He added: “It was a coup to land the first UK Carcass show in 13 years in 2008 when fans snapped up every ticket going before we made it to the day itself and it’s another coup having the band return following the release of their first new album in 17 years.

    “But even with the mighty Carcass topping the bill, we won’t be satisfied until we’ve pieced together a more challenging and brilliant day of music than the eight successful years we’ve already had the pleasure of hosting, so expect a lot more to come from 2013.”

    Tickets for Damnation Festival 2013 are on sale now and will be held at last year’s price of £32 for a limited period.

    Damnation Festival will proudly host two rare live outings this year, as extreme metal 'supergroup' VALLENFYRE and experimental rock ensemble CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX perform at the event.

    They will be joined in Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 2, by Romanian progressive black metallers NEGURA BUNGET, English doom trio MOSS and the sonic assault of Paul Catten's THE SONTARAN EXPERIMENT.

    Vallenfyre - featuring members of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and At The Gates - will play their only UK show of 2013 at Damnation Festival, which will also be their first appearance outside London.

    Founding member and vocalist Greg Mackintosh said: "Since our first UK show last year at Boltfest, we have been looking to follow it up with a northern show.

    "Being asked to play Damnation Festival provides us with the perfect opportunity. We are looking forward to spreading some filth and meeting up with some old compadres."

    Negura Bunget will also play the festival as an exclusive date.

    Drummer Negru said: "Damnation is going to be our one and only UK concert in 2013 so we will definitely make it count!

    "Be prepared for a very special Negura Bunget performance, with one of a kind exclusive previews."

    And doom laden Moss also promised to make a lasting impression, as the band said: "It's been over 10 years since we last played in the north, in a squat in Manchester in front of eight people.

    "So we look forward to finally bringing our doom and gloom back to the northern wastes at Damnation.

    "You are in for a fucking horrible night."

    Damnation veteran Paul Catten, added: "After waiting patiently for the Sontaran's turn to play my favourite festival, the moment has arrived finally.

    "Expect large amounts of volume, a large slab of doom, blastbeats and electronic noises to batter you from all angles.

    "My fourth time at Damnation in four different bands, but nothing will be as painful as what we have in store this time."

    Tickets for Damnation Festival 2013 are on sale now and will be held at last year’s price of £32 until this Sunday, March 31 .

    Doom and sludge titans CONAN, BLACK MAGICIAN and IRON WITCH will set the final cast for the wall of sound which has become Damnation Festival's fourth stage.

    The Liverpool trio cement the new doom-focused stage which already boasts Moss, Mourning Beloveth, Slabdragger and Palehorse in a bunker-like venue, aptly named Mine.

    Death metal duo DYSCARNATE and DIAMANTHIAN complete an extreme TERRORIZER STAGE which will also see Rotting Christ, Vallenfyre, Negura Bunget, Voices and The Afternoon Gentlemen test the structure of the cavernous Riley Smith Hall.

    While, Polish post-rock quartet TIDES FROM NEBULA add the final touch to an eclectic EYESORE MERCH STAGE which will also be graced by Cult of Luna, Crippled Black Phoenix, The Ocean, Rosetta, Year of no Light and Dirge.

    Damnation Festival's premier JAGERMEISTER STAGE is already complete with Carcass, Katatonia, God Seed, Shining, SSS and Twilight of the Gods playing on Saturday, November 2, at Leeds University Union.

    Festival director Gavin McInally said: "Not only is this by far the best line-up we've ever put on, but it is also the most pleasing as we've been able to add a fourth stage with the support of fans who've bought so many tickets so early in the year while reducing the number of our much-hated clashes too.

    "If doom, sludge and post-metal is your thing, you'll be able to watch every band from Iron Witch to Cult of Luna without wandering more than 20 yards while fans more interested in the Terrorizer and Jager stages will be able to catch the likes of Shining, Negura Bunget, God Seed, Vallenfyre, Katatonia, Rotting Christ and Carcass in one relentless day of music.

    "At just £34 a ticket, we believe this line-up deserves a 'Sold Out' plaster across it and with five weeks of sales to go, that's our target, so please keep up the support!"

    Tickets for Damnation Festival 2013 are on sale now, priced £34, available from: http://www.leedstickets.co.uk , the official Damnation Festival website at
