New bands with Behemoth! published 6 days ago

ANIMALS AS LEADERS may currently be the finest progressive / experimental / djent act. Musical prodigy and eight-string guitar wizard Tosin Abasi and his colourful circus of musical variety will debut at Brutal Assault fest. We're pleased to announce, that Polish stars BEHEMOTH will once again be one of the headlining acts at our fest! Californian deathgrind powerhouse CATTLE DECAPITATION will play this year as they had to pull off the last time. Samurai bulldozer goregrind commando JIG-AI of the capital of grindcore (Czech Republic of corpse) will smash brains and commit seppuku while on the other hand KNUCKLEDUST will bring their London’s filth based hardcore punk while celebrating 20 years of the band; all that without any lineup changes. Also comming from the UK, MITHRAS are experimental death metal act and their music is full of cosmic visions and ambient atmosphere. Recommended for fans of Morbid Angel, Gorguts, Immolation or Nocturnus. Possibly the hottest act in the nowadays black metal underground is returning to our fest. Make sure to catch MGŁA on the main stage this time. MONO are instrumental post rock stars of Japanese alternative scene and will debut our fest alongside MUTOID MAN – a project of Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) and Stephen Brodsky (Cave In). Also debuting at Brutal Assault will bet the returning MISERY LOVES CO. These Swedish maniacs blended power and melody, aggressiveness and subtlety and still retained the most important aspect - the song. When the band first signed to Earache, they were a relatively new name to many, but within a few months they had rightly become acknowledged as one of the mightiest discoveries of '95.

Fresh confirmed bands with VOIVOD, EYEHATEGOD & SIKTH! published 3 weeks, 6 days ago

This time we start with caveman battle doom, from the swamps of mythical Hyborian ages comes English doom hammer CONAN! Considered by some an ugly bastard spawned by Black Sabbath and Sun O))), they’ve defined their own sound on the split with Slomatics and their debut EP Horseback Battle Hammer. Industrial metal/EBM stars DIE KRUPPS will join us alongside legendary southern bastards EYEHATEGOD, who will claim their repugnant dopethrone for the first time at our festival! Next a band that formed entirely new vision of progressive metal at dawn of our milenium, SIKTH! These guys were supposed to play last year but their studio schedule prevented them from doing so in the end. But the wait was totally worth it, the new EP Opacities is again a gamechanger, or at least a piece that bursts with creativity and technical skills and oscillates between madness and classical musical approach. Controversy sprouting Niklas Kvarforth and his Swedish enslemble SHINING will take part as well as Norway’s own SLAGMAUR, who will honour us with one of their extremely rare avantgarde black metal shows. A big name in the end, VOIVOD! VOIVOD seem to be in perfect shape ever since Canadian guitar hero Daniel Mongrain (Martyr, Cryptopsy, Gorguts) has joined their ranks to replace the sadly deceased Piggy and will celebrate the musical greatness of various genres.
