Avant-garde Norwegians Ulver will play their first and only UK show outside London when they headline the Terrorizer Stage at Damnation Festival. The experimental collective will top the bill in an exclusive performance where they will showcase material from their latest ‘War Of The Roses’ offering.
Joining them will be the black jazz of their countrymen Shining and London’s doom-tinged instrumental four piece Astrohenge at Leeds University Union on Bonfire Night, Saturday, November 5.
The three genre-morphing acts add to the already stellar lineup of Decapitated, Doom, Amplifier and Dragged Into Sunlight at the seventh edition of the UK’s finest metal event, with headliners and many more bands yet to be announced across at least three stages.
Festival director Gavin McInally, said: “We’re generally excited about the bands we confirm, but the capture of Ulver for an exclusive show – and their first in the UK outside the London – is a bit special.
“The unique black jazz of Shining and experimental slabs of metal of Astrohenge are also fitting examples of what Damnation Festival is all about – offering fans something a bit different to well worn line-ups hosted across the country.
“We’re throwing everything we have at making this line-up our best yet and with the continued support of the fans, Damnation Festival 2011, will be another blinding chapter not to be missed.”
