Another bands confirmed! published 1 year, 10 months ago
One of the final lineup updates will leave us with only five announced bands but unfortunately starts with bad news as EYEHATEGOD had to postpone all their European appearances including Brutal Assault. They'll be replaced by Latvian sludgy post metal TESA. Next on the lineup are the Hungarian Soulfly-style-epigones EKTOMORF and a handful of Czech bands. These however are no fillers, make sure to check them out! First double death metal combo lead by the same mastermind: BRUTALLY DECEASED and HEAVING EARTH. The first are playing classic Swedish death with their own twist to it, they got their third album on the way and deffo are not just a plain retro but a true powerhouse of their own! The 2015 album Denouncing the Holy Throne by HEAVING EARTH was one of the best death metal records of the last year, especially if you are into blasphemous but yet thoughtful part of the DM spectre. Another great addition to the line-up are Prague’s own experimentators DEMIMONDE who are returing after a 15 year hiatus. The single “The Event Horizon” from their upcoming album was released earlier today and is heralding yet another piece of avantagarde metal science fiction. PERFECITIZEN will unleash a whirlwind of their unique death grind mix which they call blastcore. Three MetalGate records bands to finish this update, electronic metal crossover LIVEEVIL, technical death metal KEEP ON ROTTING and thrashing death ANTIGOD!

Bands by days, 2016 mybrutalassault contest published 1 year, 10 months ago
You still got seven weeks of dusting Your bones before the festival hell breaks out, but we have already revealed 95% of the line-up and right now we're bringing You the festival SCHEDULE, where You can find out which bands play in the respective days.
Also we are again giving You the opportunity to create Your own Brutal Assault poster! Our simple website app lets You pick 10 of Your favourite bands from this year's line-up and put them in order based on Your preferences. In the next step You can add info about the total number of editions You've visited and then we'll generate the poster for You. The poster is available for download or sharing on Your facebook page. There are several genre-centred versions of the poster based on the selected bands, so we have something for everyone! As a bonus, You can win the festival hardcover book we put out last year to celebrate 20 years of the festival and festival hoodie simply by sharing Your poster on facebook! Available designs are here and here.
The rules are easy, 10 randomly selected people, who will share their line-up poster with the #mybrutalassault hashtag on facebook will receive the festival book or the hoodie. The merch is to be picked up at the festival on Your ID card. Beware, the post must be set as "public" otherwise we won't be able to see it so it couldn't enter the draw. Otherwise it's pretty simple, just share Your line-up poster on Your timeline or set it as Your cover photo and add the aforementioned hashtag. The winners will be announced June 30th!
