The annual Czech festival for extreme metal, the Brutal Assault, has yet announced more bands and some regrettable cancellations.
New confirmed bands and replacement
Last couple of weeks brang us some good and some bad news, hence these line-up changes. M.O.D. ceased to exist while Evergreen Terrace, Rings of Saturn and Cattle Decapitation have canceled their tours.
Instead of Evergreen Terrace we have PRO-PAIN on the bill, Rings of Saturn were replaced by HORSE THE BAND and MONUMENTS, Cattle Decapitation were replaced by HOUR OF PENANCE and instead of M.O.D. we’ll have DR. LIVING DEAD.
Besides aforementioned PRO-PAIN, HORSE THE BAND, MONUMENTS, HOUR OF PENANCE and DR. LIVING DEAD we’ve confirmed Polish OUTRE, Swedish VICTIMS and NEGLECTED FIELDS from Latvia.
After announcing the cancellation of Ill Nino and Mushroomhead, it’s a nice surprise to hear that Evergreen Terrance and Rings of Saturn won’t be seen at the festival. Their replacement should at least provide some entertainment even if I’m not a fan of them. Pro-Pain’s name has always fascinated me thanks to his boneheadedness. The video for their single, In for the kill, was also quite baffling for me as a kid. I could not understand how anyone other than the gigantic guys seen on the video could enjoy something so simplistic. But then, I was listening to Korn and Fear Factory at the time, so…
It will also be fun to see Horse the Band again even if they are more entertainers than musicians. On the other hand, I’m really curious to see Outre, just for the fact that they share their name with one of Portal‘s album, and Victims as they are a classic swedish crust band which will provide some change from all the blasting.
If you haven’t checked out the rest of the bill, do yourself a favor and consider joining what will probably be one of the best metal festival of the year.
