British death metal legends Carcass are to reform to play one final date in Leeds later this year.

The Liverpool-based group - who paved the way for Napalm Death and others - will perform their first show on home soil in 14 years at the Damnation Festival at Leeds University in November.

Enigmatic front man Jeff Walker has claimed that the Leeds gig on November 22nd could be the group's last ever gig, after they reformed initially two years ago.

Damnation Festival director Gavin McInally added: "The exclusive booking of Carcass is the biggest coup in British metal in 2008 and we're delighted to host their return to home soil.

"The fact that it could be the last time they ever take the stage together, makes the prospect of seeing them headline Damnation even more special."

Members of Carcass have worked with the likes of Bjork and Placebo since the band split in 1995.
