While we can expect the biggest bands at the event, even the new promissing ones could be witnessed. From the biggest ones and for the first one, we can expect the Polish imp himself – Nergal. Not with Behemoth tho, but with his other project Me and That Man. Another highlight is going to be legendary King Diamond with his Mercyful Fate.
From the less known names the festival will give us some old school doomy stuff from Pentagram with their controversial frontman. Psychedic needs will be satisfied by Oranssi Pazuzu. At last Canadian black metal from Panzerfaust is in the Europe, too. This time in the bigger event than small clubs. (In)famous Gaahl is going to play his black metal with his G. Wyrd this year as well.
If you like modern stuff, death core bands as Lorna Shore or Rings of Saturn shall make you happy.
If you prefer experiments, Psykup is going to deliver some with their mix of genres. Melt-Banana from Japan will be at Brutal Assault as well with their crazy combo of grind and noise.
There will be another first timers of course. More in the image. Stay tuned for more info.
