I had Damnation AD’s first 7” for a little bit and enjoyed it a good deal. It wasn’t until I finally saw them live for the first time at the infamous 1996 Cleveland Fest that I finally got it. They were on another level. It was such a mix of raw, honest, dark passion & frustrations coming from the stage. Besides singer Mike DCs towering presence they also had the sickest guitar tones that bands are still trying (and failing) to emulate today. Damnation AD are still playing shows from time to time so if you’ve never seen them don’t miss out.
