Our entire team has been humbled by the debauched display of joy and ecstasy from attendees and performers alike at our 2022 edition this past July. We have decided to carry those good vibes forward next year with a lineup of long-requested bands and returning favorites.

NWTF remains committed to throwing the most inclusive destination metal festival in the United States and assembling a lineup that reflects the thriving and expanding diversity of the metal underground. That means exalting Washington and Oregon’s legacy of excellent doom and black metal, celebrating the modern death metal renaissance, and a cornucopia of eye-opening and pit-starting surprises — many have never played in Washington. Please join us in celebrating of the Pacific Northwest’s extreme music community Memorial Day Weekend, 2023.”

Misery Index Premiere “Rites Of Cruelty” Music Video

Misery Index have premiered a new video for their song “Rites Of Cruelty.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Complete Control.” Jason Netherton commented:

“This video is a sincere shout-out to all the Misery Index fans who made the effort to come and rage with us this past summer on the various ‘Complete Control‘ tours – from festival stages to dive bars, we’ve hit them all, and this video is a tribute to the good times of summer past as we enter the darker months of autumn. We chose the track ‘Rites of Cruelty‘ as we feel it embodies all the pissed-off energy of our new album in one bombastic faceripper, from blast beats to tank-like breakdowns, it’s become a staple of our live set, and hope you all dig it as well.”

Converge, Godflesh, Pig Destroyer, And At The Gates To Perform Full Albums At 2022 Damnation Festival

In light of Ministry’s departure from the lineup, the organizers of this year’s Damnation Festival have announced some special full album performances from Converge (playing “Jane Doe”), Godflesh (playing “Streetcleaner”), Pig Destroyer (playing “Prowler In The Yard”), and At The Gates (playing “Slaughter Of The Soul“).

Misery Index Drop Off Remaining Dates Of Their Tour With Origin & Wolf King

Misery Index have dropped off the remaining dates of their tour with Origin and Wolf King. The band commented:

“ATTN!!! Hey all – Due to personal circumstances beyond our control, we (Misery Index) have to drop off the remaining 3 dates of the Space Control Tour in Texas. Mega-apologies to those who bought tickets or were looking forward to seeing us, but rest assured Origin Wake and Wolf King will still be there to melt faces. We will schedule replacement dates as soon as possible!!!”

Misery Index Premiere “Complete Control” Music Video

Misery Index have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Complete Control.” That effort will be released on May 13. The group commented:

“’Complete Control’ draws equally on our hardcore punk and old school death metal influences. The lyrics describe the awakening of a protagonist; one who becomes acutely aware of the totalizing power structures in everyday society that work not just from ‘above’ – but from within as well.”

Misery Index Premiere “Infiltrators” Music Video

Misery Index have premiered a new video for their new song “Infiltrators.” The clip features live footage from band’s December 3, 2021 show at the Ottobar in Baltimore, Maryland and it can be seen below. The track is from their new album “Complete Control,” which will be released on May 13. The group commented:

“’Infiltrators’ is certainly the most hardcore-tinged song on the album (as well as the shortest). The lyrics target those who spew divisive, dehumanizing ideologies. It’s an outright rejection (and admittedly a strong one) of those who support and apologize for these people and their anti-social, fascistic worldviews.”

Misery Index Stream New Song “Strategies Of Manipulation”

Misery Index are streaming a new song titled “Strategies Of Manipulation.” The track was recorded during the sessions for the band’s new album “Complete Control” (out May 13) and it will be available as part of Decibel Magazine‘s flexi disc series,
