Notorious Leeds-based troublemaker, Paulie P has put together quite the line-up. 13 of the UK’s heaviest bands come together for an all-day extravaganza of doom, death, black, grind, tech & slam. For only 8 of your English pounds advance, you can join the fun down at The Well on Saturday, 19th November. Doors are 12pm so get down early.
Colonel Blast‘s “What on earth was all that shouting about” List. It’s been pretty hard coming up with 10 albums that were released in 2010 that really audially sucked us off big time. Diascorium tried to suck us all off but we flat out refused, between Paul Priest’s owly beak, Bernards carefully constructed tramp chic and Gareths “sideburns on a childs face” look there wasn’t an option we were willing to test with our mighty girth, we considered David Bond for a minute due to his wonderfully conditioned hair and pantene advert looks, but he wasn’t up for offering it up from behind so we weren’t given the option to pretend he was a woman. It doesn’t matter how good that hair looks, it’s still his face that it surrounds.
If Damnation Festival were a body part, it would be a penis. A massive throbbing bellend, waved in the face of conventional booking strategies. Firstly, instead of picking up the latest Metal Hammer, pointing at whichever bloated, irrelevant band are on the front cover, shouting “Want that one!” & dribbling a bit, they put together a diverse, genre-spanning line-up of genuinely interesting bands. Then, rather than charging enough to buy a decent sized, semi-detached house, ask for a very reasonable £27 for a day of mind-mangling metal in the centre of Leeds. We’ve not had a better offer than that all year.
