This weekend sees the return of the Dames of Darkness Festival, the UK's biggest celebration of metal bands with female vocalists. Topping off the great line-up of both local and worldwide acts are Sirenia and Leaves' Eyes. It's a rare appearance from Sirenia in the UK and will be the first time they play songs from their new album The Seventh Life Path. There's also a possibility that Leaves' Eyes will be showcasing some new material from their upcoming record.
I will be attending the festival with my Muses of Metal partner Tayla Dickinson (who is also the host DJ for the fest) - so expect to see some pics, reviews and interviews! There is a full guide to the bands and the festival here.
Dames of Darkness takes place at the Robin 2 in Bilston, near Birmingham. The doors open at 2pm and tickets cost £45 for the weekend.
Tickets are available here.
Note: The band Incassum have sadly split up and will no longer be performing on the Sunday, instead Scarlett Riot and Winter In Eden will play longer sets.
