Thrashers Evile, and Finnish folk metallers Turisas top the latest acts confirmed for the seventh instalment of Damnation.

Turisas
The duo will play the Jagermeister Stage, and are joined on the bill by Xerath and a unique, one-off showing of, A Man Called Catten performing a Medulla Nocte set.

Paul Catten said, "After listening to the Medulla Nocte albums for the first time in many years, I knew I had to play these songs one last time. A Man Called Catten is a tribute to this material, and my chance to do them justice...playing them as they were meant to be played; live, fast and very loud. I'm ecstatic to be able to perform them at Damnation where I have great memories from previous performances, and this is the one and only time you will hear a set comprising of nothing but Nocte tracks. Relive your youth…the fucking Cat is back!"

Festival director Gavin McInally added, "Evile opened Damnation Festival when we still called Manchester home and following their meteoric rise - which is sure to continue with their new album - it's fantastic to finally have them back at the festival, adding a much needed dose of thrash.

"Turisas will no doubt be a surprise addition to many fans but when men with swords tell you they need a home for a night, you throw open your doors! We're looking forward to a battle with some beers at Damnation as they trek across the country on their UK tour.

"Xerath are a certain to kick-off proceedings in style while the prospect of seeing Paul Catten tearing through Medulla Nocte classics at his vicious best is going to leave the rest of the Terrorizer Stage will a difficult set to follow!"

They join a line-up at University of Leeds Union, on Bonfire Night, Saturday 5th November 2011 of confirmed acts including lver, Godflesh, God Is An Astronaut, Shining, Astrohenge, Decapitated, Amplifier, Altar of Plagues, Doom, and Dragged Into Sunlight with more still to be announced.
