Long-running Celtic metal act WAYLANDER were reunited with former band member and editor of Ireland's Metalworks magazine, Martin MacCormaic, for a memorable set at the fourth installment of Ireland's Day of Darkness festival on July 9. MacCormaic, who left WAYLANDER in 2002, took to the stage to attend to tin-whistle duty as the band performed in front of a frenzied crowd. Also performing at the festival were doom titans MOURNING BELOVETH, whose powerful performance on the day included tracks from the band's recently released third album, "A Murderous Circus". The festival was headlined by black metal legends ROTTING CHRIST. The four-piece celebrated their first-ever performance on Irish soil and delivered a rousing performance that served as a fitting end to the days proceedings.The full lineup for the one-day event was: ROTTING CHRIST, DESASTER, MOURNING BELOVETH, SCAVENGER, WAYLANDER, CARNUN RISING, PRIMAL DAWN, DEVILMAKESTHREE, WRECK OF THE HESPERUS and GROUND OF RUIN.
