The King may be Dethroned and Uncrowned, but Swedish metal legends KATATONIA still seem to be standing tall among the masses. Fresh of the success of their latest acoustic album, we catch the boys taking a brief break before hitting the stage at Damnation Festival.

Sitting down with bassist Niklas Sandin and drummer Daniel Liljekvist so they can tell us about tales of Eagles, poorly fitting t-shirt and the joys of Emmerdale.

This is certainly no ordinary interview!

There are a few ways to tell that an interview is going to be interesting, and having to literally coax the interviewee away from reading up on an Ice Hockey match is definitely one of them.

Already running 5 minutes late for the interview, CULT OF LUNA member Johannes Persson; (Vocals and Guitars) breezes up with a grin the biggest grin on his face before launching into a long complaint about the back ground music.

Dragging him back on track and into his music, It’s not hard to see why these guys are one of the hottest post-metal bands around right now. Not only did Vertikal set the new standards in bleak music but EP Vertikal II released just months after is the same devastating standard.

Taking a quick break from the madness of Damnation Festival, we chat with Persson about the new EP and how they turned such abstract ideas into musical reality.

Interview by Caitlin Smith

God Seed

The old giants of black metal still stand tall. They may not be as young or as angry as they were back in the beginning but one thing we can say for certain they held onto was their talent. With cries that black metal is dead, and that all remaining bands are simply copies of older work, but some still remain to prove to doubters and elitists alike that there are still doors that have been left closed, pathways that remain untrodden. We catch up with King Ov Hell to chat about the life as bassist in his new band, GOD SEED.

Moss

It’s been 13 years of nightmares and torment from doom metal trio MOSS and they’re not letting up just yet. With the release of Horrible Night only six months before and appearances at two upcoming UK festivals, these guys are back, bring spreading their message of doom, misery and madness to anyone willing to listen. Appearing at Damnation Festival, Metal Rules took the opportunity to decode their message of misery, horror and health and safety.

Damnation Festival 2013

Damnation Festival

@ Leeds University, Leeds

Review by Caitlin Smith

Calling all the sinners and heretics, the gathering of the damned with once again take place in the unholy city of, well, Leeds. Perhaps the settings may not be dark, dank pits of hell, but the bands certainly make up for this. Damnation festival has returned bigger and better than ever this year, with an additional forth stage and hallways chock full of denim cutoffs and weathered leather jackets on men and women alike. As some things change though, others stay the same. CARCASS made their Damnation debut in 2008, and judging by the packed halls, this was a more than welcome booking.

Review by Wolf Shankland

Leeds has always been seen as one of the most alternative places in the UK, but once a year; on the first Saturday of November, it’s metalled up to the max! And this year was no different!!

If you live in Leeds or the surrounding areas and you listen to the most brutal metal around and didn’t go to this festival, THEN…SHAME ON YOU!!

DAMNATION FESTIVAL

22nd November 2008

Leeds University, UK

All live pics and review by HannTu


The Damnation Festival has a proud history of serving up quality metal to metalheads in the British Isles for quite a few years now. It has come from humble beginnings to currently span three indoor stages, and attracting big names in metal as well as breaking newer independent bands is its aim. Mille Petrozza of Kreator called it right, he said that “this isn’t a festival for scenes and trends”. Indeed, and with this year’s varied line-up, ranging from Carcass to My Dying Bride to Berserker to Sigh, there was something in it for everyone.
