Hardcore punk legends Discharge and UK thrash metallers Sabbat are the latest additions to the sixth chapter of Damnation Festival.

The crust veterans will headline the Terrorizer Stage while Sabbat will perform on the Jagermeister Stage.

Also, recently announced are experimental doom rockers Esoteric and globe-trotting metal veterans Panic Cell, alongside Scottish old-school death metallers Bonesaw, Brighton's progressive rockers The Mire and the recent winners of the Rock Sound and Terrorizer stage competitions; The Construct, Colonel Blast and Diascorium.

Damnation organisers recently announced they had made the decision to drop the capacity from 3,500 to less than 2,000 to enable the festival to be financially viable.

Festival Director Gavin McInally said: "It's no secret we've had a tough year of it so being able to confirm two top acts like Discharge and Sabbat is a real pleasure.

"Aside from the Jagermeister Stage competition and perhaps another smaller band on the Terrorizer Stage, the bill is pretty much complete for this year and despite the lack of an exclusive headliner we're delighted to once again put together a three stage line-up we're immensely proud of.

"Rare showings from the likes of Lawnmower Deth, Fukpig, the return of Earthtone9, exclusive performances by Alcest, Anaal Nathrakh as well as the aforementioned talent of DEP, Paradise Lost, Sabbat and Discharge – 2010 is going to be a blinder."

The sixth instalment of Damnation is a one-day indoor metal event held over three stages at the University of Leeds Union. The date set for the festival is Saturday 6th November 2010.

UK metallers Earthtone9 will make their highly anticipated return to the stage this year following their break-up in 2002. Other acts to be confirmed are The Dillinger Escape Plan and Paradise Lost who will co-headline with Discharge, Sabbat, Anaal Nathrakh, Lawnmower Deth, Rolo Tomassi, Panic Cell, Alcest, The Ocean, Esoteric, SSS, Hecate Enthroned, Fen, Maybeshewill, October File, Bonesaw, Fukpig, The Mire, Colonel Blast, The Construct and Diascorium, with many more bands to be announced across three stages.
