KSE, Lawnmower Deth, Disturbed for Download 2016

Breaking Benjamin, Down and Atreyu also among latest batch of 33 acts confirmed for next year's Donington event

Killswitch Engage, Atreyu, Down, Breaking Benjamin, Lawnmower Deth and Shinedown are among the latest acts to be confirmed for next year's Download festival.

Donington bosses have named 33 more bands who will join the previously-announced headliners Rammstein, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden at the three-day event in 2016.

Tremonti, Twin Atlantic, Beartooth, Don Broco, Rival Sons, Tesseract, Disturbed, Saxon and Delain have also been confirmed.

The list was announced on Daniel P Carter's Radio One Rock Show tonight.

Also included is the so-called 'loudest silent movie on earth', Gutterdammerung. The film will be screened in the headline slot on the Third stage on Friday, along with a live performance by the Gutterdammerung band.

The film stars Iggy Pop, Grace Jones, Henry Rollins, Jesse Hughes, Lemmy, Tom Araya, Volbeat, Mark Lanegan, Joshua Homme and Slash and is a modern take on the silent movie era. But instead of a lone pianist providing the soundtrack, a rock band plays along live with the film.
