Swedish spooksters Ghost have withdrawn from their scheduled performance at Download Festival, Castle Donington today, Sunday 12th June 2016, due to a severe case of laryngitis.

The band issued a statement through Twitter which read:

"[MESSAGE FROM THE CLERGY] We regret to inform you that due to a severe case of laryngitis GHOST will not be able to perform at #DL2016."

Maybe that should have read "message from the lergy?"

French tech death Metallers Gojira will now play at 6:20pm today, Sunday.

It's still raining valkyries and hellhounds at Download and Derbyshire Police are warning of a severe traffic build up in the area which will cause serious delays.

At the time of writing, Amon Amarth are about to hit the Lemmy Stage and some of their fans have been busy getting prepared in the Metal Forest.


After Megadeth's triumphant performance yesterday, Dave Mustaine Tweeted: "Best day yet on tour. Thanks", while Juliette And The Licks, who played on Saturday, took this rather splendid picture from behind the drum kit on the Encore Stage yesterday.


The anticipation is already building for Iron Maiden's headline performance tonight and we'll be publishing our gig review very shortly after the band leave the stage. Click here for our review of Black Sabbath's headline gig last night.
