Brutal Assault 2018: Line-Up Update


Brutal Assault: 08-11 August 2018; Fortress Josefov, Jaroměř

Brutal Assault music festival is coming back to Josefov once again for its 23rd edition. The complete lineup should traditionally include more than a hundred bands of various extreme genres. And although the band list is still updating, its already a hellishly solid set that you wont want to miss.

This year, Brutal Assault goes deeper into the underground with another load of bands for the 2018 edition. Death metal fans can rejoice as we confirm CANNIBAL CORPSE bringing their king-sized portion of guts, blood, and death classics to BA once again. Also, we will welcome British progressive death/black metal act AKERCOCKE a.k.a. a reunited band releasing an excellent comeback album of jaw-dropping magnitude.

Regarding the classics, HELMET with their trademarked groovy guitar riffs and unrestrained drums filled with the easily recognizable voice of Page Hamilton will unleash their post-hardcore whirlwind within the fortress for the first time.

Talking about darker stuff, Amalie Bruun’s MYRKUR will perform with her atmospheric raw, dissonant blackened riffing combined with vocal efforts leaning closer to the earthy, doomish folk similar to Chelsea Wolfe. Canadian PALLBEARER, probably the biggest Rush fans in the world, will carry their unique doom metal coffin to BA. And speaking of dark melancholic music, renowned Neurosis-like post-hardcore cult LVMEN will perform their latest album, Mitgefangen Mitgehangen.

Hardcore fans could appreciate H2O, an unrestrained hardcore/punk act that blends Cro-Mags and Agnostic Front with the punk drive of Token Entry. Speaking of comebacks, after 6 years we will welcome the metalcore whirlwind from the highlands called BLEED FROM WITHIN. True thrashers will get E-FORCE, a Canadian/French act with former Voivod members.

Last but not least, the final addition to the lineup? If you are into cold electro beats, then you will dig HORSKH, a French duo beating up audiences with brutal electro-industrial sounds.
