News: Damnation Festival 2024 Announce UK Black Metal Legends Cradle Of Filth As Their Headliner Along With A Few Other Delights

UK Black Metal legends Cradle Of Filth will headline this year’s Damnation with an exclusive “old school ritual performance”.

On the 30th anniversary of the band’s debut, ‘The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh’, and 20th anniversary of ‘Nymphetamine’, they will revisit the classics from their extensive back catalogue at BEC Arena, Manchester on Saturday, November 2.

US Sludge standouts Inter Arma, the Death Metal combo of Fuming Mouth and 200 Stab Wounds as well as Psychedelic Doom outfit Rezn also join the stacked line-up, with more talent still to come.

Organiser Gavin McInally said: “Cradle of Filth have been an iconic part of the UK extreme metal landscape for the past three decades so our paths crossing has been long overdue.

“Given Damnation now has the scale to offer the theatre of the band’s live show the space it deserves, I’m sure this will be the most eye-catching performance we’ve had the pleasure of hosting.

“The fact the soundtrack to that theatre will be their old school black metal classics, and the hits we grew up with on MTV2 and Scuzz, will mean a memorable close to the 2024 festival.”

He added: “Fans have been calling for the return of Inter Arma since they packed Leeds in 2019 so we’re delighted to have them with us in Manchester while Fuming Mouth and 200 Stab Wounds represent some of the most exciting new death metal coming out of America right now.

“As always we like to keep the bill as eclectic as possible, and if getting lost in a dreamy stoner riff is more your vibe, REZN fortunately have an arsenal of them.

“We have more big names to join this bill, but we’re already reaching the 50 per cent sold out mark, so if this takes your fancy, don’t sit on the fence too long or you might be left there.”

Tickets available for a £10 deposit (plus booking fee) until the end of February:
