Brutal Assault 2018: The Last Underground Lineup Update


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

First off, let’s start with the bands that cannot make it to BA this year for various reasons: these include DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA, IHSAHN, SAINT VITUS, NOVEMBERS DOOM and GRAVEYARD.

This update kicks off with relentless Swedish death/thrashers DIABOLICAL and a household name of alternative hardcore with rap influences, DOG EAT DOG! British doom masters ESOTERIC are spawn of the post-industrial decay in Birmingham, and the aural mayhem they bring forth is a gloomy way of looking at things that the classic Polish hardcore metallers FRONTSIDE also deal with, but in their own genre-bending way. Italian bulldozing goregrinders GUINEAPIG are considerably lighter in their selection of topics. Also on the bill will be Dutch grindcore heavyweights INHUME, who could make Czech Republic their second home, great progressive death from the miniscule Principality of Andorra, PERSEFONE, and absolute legends of Brazilian crossover, RATOS DE PORÃO!

Our update continues further with the finest selection of what the local underground has to offer: flesh-cutting death mongers ANIME TORMENT and CUTTERED FLESH, the dark shoegaze of DÆRRWIN, the classic symphonic death of DEPRESY, forefathers of the local US-styled death metal scene, GODLESS TRUTH, the industrial black of GORGONEA PRIMA, wild provocateurs HENTAI CORPORATION, the melodic death of INNERSPHERE, the deathgrinding hardcore of POPPY SEED GRINDER, unique alternatives PRVNÍ HOŘE, the emo hardcore of RAVELIN 7, the Slovak folkish black of RAMCHAT and the originators of ethno-doom, SILENT STREAM OF GODLESS ELEGY.
