BRUTAL ASSAULT: Power Trip cancels but festival adds more bands

Unfortunately for Power Trip fans, the band have pulled out of the event. In their replacement, Madball will perform. Brutal Assault announce additional Czech and Slovak acts, as described below. A sneak peek of the running order has also been revealed.


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.


Line-up 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…

I started this website in 2011 because I always had a burning passion of sharing music and keeping people informed about what's going on in the metal and rock worlds. If I am not sitting in a dark room in front of a computer, listening to some obscure music (or Whitesnake), then I am usually found at a concert or a festival interviewing bands (or drinking beer).
