Founded by brothers Mark and Dean, and close friend Luke, Damnations Day have been playing music together since 2005. After the completion of "Invisible, the Dead", recorded and produced by Dean Wells 2011/2012, Jon was welcomed into the DDAY family as their permanent lead guitarist. With incredible chops and tasteful feel he adds an even stronger element to an already promising line up. Partnerships with Intromental management and Nightmare records were then formed.
Off the recording and release of "Invisible, the Dead" 2013, Damnations Day have been working hard, supporting such bands as NIGHTWISH, SYBREED, PSYCROPTIC, BLACK MAJESTY, WIDOW, PEGAZUS, VANISHING POINT, KING PARROT, LORD and SOILWORK as well as headlining shows and appearing in Australian Metal festivals such as Steel Assassins NSW and Stormrider Festival WA.
In September 2014 Damnations Day joined ACCEPT on the Scandinavian and European leg of their BLIND RAGE TOUR. Damnations Day was privileged enough to play along side such bands as BATTLE BEAST, CIRCLE II CIRCLE and SALAMANDRA. This amazing opportunity allowed DDay to expose themselves to sold out shows in front of 1000-3000 people a night!
Although showing versatility over many styles, they remain determined to bring an energetic and powerful atmosphere to their live performance. Damnations Day has begun its writing and preproduction process for their second studio album.
Elegantly balancing between melodic heavy metal and thrash-influenced power on their debut "Invisible, The Dead" released fall 2013 (Nightmare Records) Australian metal act Damnations Day delivers an earsplitting slab of high quality music for the next generation.
