Brutal Assault introduces this year’s artwork (and hardcore band announcements)

The Brutal Assault homepage was just revised to include our new festival visual design, that was brought to life in cooperation with ISISDESIGNSTUDIO. As you can see the thematic hasn’t strayed from the path we’ve outlined some years ago. To enjoy our new artwork in full extent we’d like to invite you to a freshly opened section of our web at http://brutalassault.cz/download/ where you can download PC/mobile wallpapers, flyers or posters with the new festival design and some more graphic materials. We’d be utmost happy if You could share this news with Your friends!

Next pleasant obligation of ours is to present some newly confirmed bands to our 2017 bill. Many of you wanted to see more hardcore bands in the line-up and you shouldn’t be disappointed! HATEBREED are returning to BA stage once to present metallic hardcore with hooks that will catch you and never let you leave the pit! THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN are doing a couple of farewell shows this summer and BA just couldn’t be left out! OVERKILL have been around for almost 40 years but their brand new record lefts no one in doubt, that with their show you’re still gonna feel the fire like it’s 1985! There are not many bands that are universally loved but their live shows are more scarce than platinum so it makes us very proud to bring you a WINTERSUN show!

Debutants at BA stage, OATHBREAKER from Belgium, are oscillating between post-hardcore and post(black)-metal, while another debutants AVERSION CROWNS from Australia utilize three guitarists brandishing 8 string guitars to present their pummeling blend of mechanized death and haunting atmospherics. Texan crossover thrashers POWER TRIP will share their incredible live energy with you as well as one of the most insane mathcore bands of the early 2000’s THE NUMBER TWELVE LOOKS LIKE YOU, who are coming back after a six year hiatus. Last two bands of this announcement are the vikings of Bergen HELHEIM and the most intense band from Australia KING PARROT with their dirty thrashing sludgy grindcore.
