Dynamic German heavy hitters Accept on their only UK date, and New Jersey’s finest metal exponents, Overkill, unleash their exquisite power on the opening Friday while Visigoth bring Salt City Steel.
Saturday brings Sweden’s classic doom merchants Candlemass and Norway’s Borknagar will deliver their progressive black metal. From Texas, Eternal Champion also play their only UK 2022 date.
Mayhem carries on through Sunday, with Greek masters Rotting Christ and doom-death kings My Dying Bride sharing headline honours, ably supported by Cirith Ungol and an absolute ungodly feast of support from Midnight, Raging Speedhorn and Night Demon to name just a few.
