LINEUP CHANGES! DispersE and Collision at BA2017 published 1 year, 3 months ago

Sadly we have to announce that two bands had to withdraw from our lineup this year. Prog death metal BORN OF OSIRIS are unable to perform at the festival since they postponed their euro tour to Fall 2017. Australian thrashing grindcore act KING PARROT also cancelled their show because they are late with recording of their new album. On the other hand we are more than happy to welcome another two great bands - promising Polish DISPERSE, who inject fresh momentum into the progressive genre, and extreme grindcore/hardcore destruction COLLISION from the Netherlands.

Final lineup update! published 1 year, 3 months ago

We now bring you the final update for this year. This time we bring you some of the most interesting underground bands of their respective genres out there.

As their name implies, THE GREAT OLD ONES are heavily inspired by the works of H. P. Lovecraft. Like the sinister novels and stories of the horror icon, the music of these Frenchmen delves into the forbidden, dark, haunting and violent spheres of post-metal and ambient. HIGHER POWER play brassy hardcore the British way while PHURPA will perform soul cleansing musical ritual of Bön tradition. Polish FURIA has a very personal take on black metal including several style transgressions and the same goes for FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE and their way of interpretating death metal. MERCY TIES are touring with Birds in Row this year and present punk-rock gone schizo; a deformed approach that adds elements of math rock and grind to create something unsettling, unpredictable and distinctive. Norwegian avant-garde representatives MADDER MORTEM will travel through a wide array of musical landscapes and German black metal band ULTHA will show their own hybrid of Scandinavian and US-black metal, doom and dark wave melodies. The first Saturday slot will traditionally let you relax on the wave of cheerful goregrind this time executed by Polish NUCLEAR VOMIT while the tradition of the last slot of the fest draining you of the last bits of energy by gloomy funeral doom will be upheld by French MONOLITHE. Latest addition we have for you is SOEN, a super-group project of former Opeth, Amon Amarth and Willowtree members with contribution of Steve DiGiorgio. Expect melodic, heavy, intricate and very unique blend of progressive metal.

The lineup will be further completed with the most interesting bands from the local scene.

Lineup finishing touches published 1 year, 3 months ago

This time we bring you the best of CZ & SK scene! But first sadly we have to inform you that POWER TRIP had to withdraw from our lineup since they are unable to perform for personal reasons. On the other hand US hardcore veterans MADBALL are ready to rock our stage instead! Talking about CZ and SK bands we are excited to welcome POSTCARDS FROM ARKHAM, narcotic post-rock that takes you to the melancholic and gloomy world of H. P. Lovecraft. We are also pleased to bring two genre-smashing acts, SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION who have developed their own progressive sound called metal-soul, and unique crossover outcasts INSANIA celebrating 30 blasphemous years on the stage. If you want to hear some classic stuff, we would recommend you EXORCIZPHOBIA, straightforward crossover / thrash metal invoking bands like D.R.I., Nuclear Assault or Sacred Reich; DYSANGELIUM with their orthodox death metal craft or AVENGER with their black/death metal crushing since 1992. Hardcore fans could appreciate two promising CZ names - PRIMARY RESISTANCE, dirty hardcore/metal of former members of Disfigured Corpse, and SKYWALKER, unrestrained hardcore/punk touring all over the world. Last two bands of this announcement are intense industrial metal WAR FOR WAR and melodic dark doom metal DOOMAS.

Also many of you have asked for lineup by days. So here is a small teaser:
Wednesday August 9th - The Dillinger Escape Plan, Wintersun, Master's Hammer, Metal Church...
Thursday Aug 10th - Emperor, Opeth, Hatebreed, Suffocation...
Friday Aug 11th - Electric Wizard, Clawfinger, Trivium, Morbid Angel...
Saturday Aug 12th - Architects, Eluveitie, Devin Townsend, Mayhem...

FULFILLMENT - wristband shipping prior the festival published 1 year, 2 months ago

Brutal Assault is a completely cashless festival where you pay for goods, foods and drinks by RFID chip on your wristband. To ease things up for you, this year we are implementing a new service – FULFILLMENT. Starting this Monday, everyone who bought a ticket via our eshop (both print@home ticket and classic paper ticket) will be able to order this service via our eshop.
This service will be available for a limited period of time (so everything is processed in due time - details coming on Monday) for a fixed price of 6€ per order (no matter how many tickets were included in the order) and upon ordering, you will receive your wristband by airmail a week before the festival, so you don’t have to wait in line to get your ticket swapped for a wristband on the festival site. You will be able to come straight through the festival gates and if you pre-load credit on your wristband you will be straight out able to enjoy yourself without having to deal with swapping tickets or loading money onto your wristband.
