The Polish death metallers play their only UK show of 2011. They will be joined by progressive rock trio Amplifier, crust punk veterans Doom and blackened doom purveyors Dragged into Sunlight.

The four diverse bands are just a taster of what's to come with headliners and many more bands to be announced across at least three stages.

Festival director Gavin McInally, said, "Seven years in and the hunger to put together the finest day of metal in the UK hasn't faded at all. In fact, after a couple of difficult years, and in a very crowded market we're more determined than ever to re-establish Damnation Festival as the best metal event this island has to offer.

"Decapitated made a triumphant return last year and with a new album due out this summer we're proud to host their only UK show of 2011.

"Amplifier, Doom and Dragged Into Sunlight will also all make their Damnation debuts as we aim to create our finest and most diverse bill yet."

Tickets went on sale today and are priced at £29. To buy tickets, click here.
