Great pictures from last Saturday at the Upper Saw Festival by Sascha & Nadine Hintz.
Tonight it goes on in Hohenmemmingen at the Metalnight Vol II - we are looking forward to you!!


A huge thanks to the Upper Saw Festival team and all the metalheads - it was an honour to be part of this mega party again.


The wait is over - no more summer lazing around - it's high time to hit the stages ourselves again !!!!
The next 3 weeks will start with 3 wonderful festivals:

23.09. - Uper Saw Festival - Dotternhausen (Ger)
30.09. - Metalnight II in Hohenmemmingen (Ger)
07.10. - Metalheads Gemany Festival VI - Alzey (Ger)

We are in the starting blocks, digging in our heels and looking forward to rocking and partying with you all without mercy.


The waiting time until the next gigs is the perfect opportunity to get the right outfit already now, e.g. one of the new shirts - or even several to switch:

Just send an email to office@blackanddamned.com and you will get all the necessary details.


Last Saturday we definitely had a lot of fun at the Savo-Club in Balingen and no, the gig really wasn't cool, but rather an absolute heat battle, where Bobbes impressively proved how fit he is in the meantime again - yeah!!!
But now it's time for the summer break - holidays, recreation and of course some songwriting. In 2 months, we will be back in full force with a triple pack of festivals - the anticipation is already absolutely immense.


We are really happy that our shouting boy is fit again and was able to perform on stage yesterday.
The next opportunity to find out for yourself is in Balingen in 2 weeks - we look forward to seeing you there!


Absolute state of shock:
After our shouter Bobbes had to spend a rather unpleasant time in the hospital last year, he has now been fully hit again.

An exact diagnosis and the further required measures are still unclear at the moment.

We are with him in our thoughts, wish him all the best, lots of strength and hope for a quick and above all complete recovery.

Cheer up, Bobbes, you'll be fine!!!

However, the gig at the Sonnenkeller next Saturday has to be postponed definitively - once again, now already for the second time :-(


There's not much to say about it, except: Volume to maximum and there you go ...

The eagle has landed - out now !!!

There will also be a tank top in a different look soon.


Hell yeah, finally - Hyenas Call - the video premiere to the first single release of "Servants Of The Devil":


The team from Rock Is Life Photography accompanied the video shoot for "Black & Damned" last Sunday and shot some brilliant pictures -
1000 thanks! Here are some impressions:

The complete gallery can be found here: Gallery Video Shoot



"Pandemic and uncertainties did not stop Black & Damned to complete their second and new album "Servants of The Devil". A release characterized by lyrical and musical strength embraced by a darker aura. Wider sound experiments combined with traditional Power Metal tracks open the mind and ears. Servants get ready to unleash the fury and emotions under the sound of Black & Damned".

The countdown is on ...



A little over a year ago, we were able to celebrate our live premiere at the 1st Upper Saw Festival - an incredible evening. All the more we are excited that we are invited again for next year and then of course we can present the songs of the new CD. The place will be trembling - promised!


Good news: our screamer is feeling better from day to day and so we can slowly start with the badly missed gigs again.
We will start in 3 weeks, together with CROSSING SABBATH at the reopening of the Luftraum, the "Metal Is Forever"-club in Fürstenfeldbruck. This will surely be a heavy party and an awesome reunion with many faces from the community ... hell yeah!


During the compulsory break, a small retrospective offers itself, for example with a photo series of the past Wellesweiler Open Air:


High time for a small update on the current situation.
In the meantime, word has spread that our Bobbes had to undergo a very serious operation in August. Fortunately, everything seems to be over now and Bobbes is getting better day by day. However, in order not to endanger the further healing process, he must continue to avoid any exertion and stress in the coming weeks.
For this reason BLACK & DAMNED will probably not be able to play any more gigs this year. The planning for 2023 is already in full swing - we will keep you up to date.

further into the past ...
