20141026_Siege_Of_Limerick-Samhain2014Well! It’s about that time of year again when a course to the West of Ireland is plotted and the Irish Metal Masses descend on the ancient settlement of Limerick once more.

Limerick’s Bad Reputation have been steadily going from strength-to-strength over the last six years for each of their bi-annual ‘Siege Of Limerick’ all-day events with last Springs completely Irish line-up was probably their most successful to date with local titans PRIMORDIAL and MOURNING BELOVETH being the big draw acts on the night. And it was indeed a fantastic day to be part of with Dolan’s Warehouse being absolutely packed to rafters for the main event.

Now! With the next installment looming fast on the horizon, Bad Reputation have revealed the first acts to be confirmed for ‘Samhain 2014’ event on the 26 October.

The departures of Frank Brennan and Ciaran Doyle left local legends OLD SEASON with some serious boots to fill. But they have finally come out of their long slumber in recent months with a new full and stable line-up and will be making a welcome return to the Siege.

Dublin’s Grind/Death juggernaut, ABADDON INCARNATE have only just released their devastating new album ‘Pessimist’, which is out now on Candlelight Records. And are without a doubt one of our heaviest musical exports, who have been destroying all before them since the early 1990’s.
