Brutal Assault’s last major line-up update!

We now bring you the final Brutal Assault line-up 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…
