Damnation Festival 2014 eyesore merch stage preview

Yesterday we brought you a little preview of the Main Stage at Damnation Festival 2014, today is the turn of the Eyesore Merch stage.  It might be the smallest stage of the festival but that doesn't mean the bands don't pack a BIG punch, heck Bast are opening proceedings on it at 1 in the afternoon.  If that's not a good start I don't know what is.  Without further ado, the bands playing are as follows...

Damnation Festival 2014

In under 2 weeks time Bolt Thrower are playing Leeds.  BOLT THROWWWWEEEERRRRRR. Apparently some other bands are playing but personally I'd pay £36 to see Bolt Thrower any day of the week, no support required. Seriously why has Damnation not sold out already, shame on you UK! Let's face it if you don't like Bolt Thrower you are false. In 10 years time you're gonna look back and wonder why on earth you liked Black Veil Brides and why the hell you didn't go and see Bolt Thrower? In the first of our Damnation previews we will run down all the awesome bands that are playing on the Main Stage, you should know them all but just in case...

Zom Flesh Assimilation cover

These dudes are very much a staple of the death metal scene in Ireland, heck they’re a part of pretty much every scene in Ireland, being stuck on the line up of just about every respectable gig that...

Opeth pale communion tour reviewLast Tuesday, Opeth were in Glasgow and, as usual, I couldn’t resist. Touring Europe with their French shoegazing/post-metal friends Alcest, they’re in the process of promoting the release of their latest album, Pale Communion (August 2014). I’ll guiltily admit that Opeth, to me, are like the faithful partner in a long term relationship; well-proven yet familiar, whereas Alcest are new and exciting, strange and mysterious. Opeth’s retrospective transformation with Heritage (2011) and Pale Communion (2014) is, say, your wife quitting her...

Bog Oak Review

Sacramento’s four-piece, Bog Oak, are a band that have been slowly building a respectable reputation, within the underground, for about a year. Their DIY efforts caught the attention of the good folks at Svart Records and they now find themselves very much in the public eye, with the impending release of their first EP ‘A Treatise On Resurrection And The Afterlife’.

The current metal scene needs another doom band like a fish needs a bicycle and, while that is the sole focus of Bog Oak’s music, they should not be dismissed as what they have to offer is strangely unique to an incredibly oversaturated sub-genre. Bog Oak weave together fuzzed-out sludge atmospherics...
