Ah, yes, after months and months of fevered anticipation, the date is finally upon us. Fellow metal fans, rejoice! This Saturday, December 3, at the Larimer Lounge, Denver Doomfest kicks off to the most joyest of seasons, the time when we all gather together to bask in the thunderous, deafening roar of amps overdriven by downtuned guitars, while songs about all sorts of mythical things dance in our heads. Judging from the lineup and the sweet, sweet flier below featuring the radiculous artwork of David Csicely, it's gonna be one helluva good time. Denver Doomfest 2012 Larimer Lounge - 12/3/11
