Damnation Festival Add Exclusive Sets From Electric Wizard and Enslaved

UK doom heavyweights ELECTRIC WIZARD will headline Damnation - their only UK show of 2023.

While ENSLAVED return to their black metal roots for a one-off performance of their landmark debut album, Vikingligr Veldi.

Both bands join an eclectic array of exclusive sets - from Japan's black metal maestros Sigh to America's reformed metalcore pioneers Deadguy - set to descend on Europe's biggest indoor metal festival, at BEC Arena, Manchester, on Saturday, November 4.

Enslaved said:

"30 years after the the recording of our debut full length, Vikingligr Veldi, we are ready to perform it in its entirety!
"For the first and last time in the UK!

"Hope to see all our UK-fans at Damnation. Alu Alu Laukar.”

Organiser Gavin McInally said:

"Electric Wizard are a Damnation fans' favourite and since they last sold the festival out seven years ago they've continued their climb to the top of the doom ladder, headlining huge festivals across the globe.

"It's now time to give them a platform fitting on their stature for a one-off UK show, with full arena production behind them.

"Only dabble in psychedelics in your brain can handle occult videos clips on a cinema screen while being pummelled by Funeralopolis."

He added:

"The words honour and privilege get tossed around too often in marketing statements but when you book Enslaved for the only time they'll ever play Vikingligr Veldi in the UK, they feel appropriate.

"This set will take the band back three decades to a black metal masterpiece and we expect fans to fly in from across the world to see it."

The line-up, so far for Damnation 2023 is: Electric Wizard, Enslaved, Amenra, Anaal Nathrakh, Sigh, Ahab, Downfall of Gaia, Rotten Sound, Deadguy, High Command, Heriot, Strigoi and Ashenspire.
