BRUTAL ASSAULT 2020 info 7


After announcement MERCYFUL FATE, here is update of another new bands playing in BA for this year.

Again, we shall see relatively new band to the genre, which draw power from the thrash metal roots. With strong message MUNICIPAL WASTE shall raise some pogo and hell. Another thrash act is M.O.D of Billy Milan.

For some “relaxation” RED FANG will give us some music dose of their addiitive stoner stuff.

DARKEST HOUR will be another representation of the modern metal. Staying in the moderna will be the place of FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE and their extensive content of death metal grinding stuff mixed with nice symphonic compositions. Another death metal will be presented by gory classic EXHUMED, punk stinking NECROT or cold and raw SOREPTION.

Similar to MERCYFUL FATE, PENTAGRAM with troublemaker Bobby Liebling will be one of the oldest existing bands of the festival… Their existence reaches to 1971 and they are one of the first bands which were derivates of BLACK SABBATH. Another band in VENOM, BATHORY or CELTIC FROST style is black metal of DENIAL OF GOD. Some more melodical approach will be given to us from Swedish VALKYRJA.

Brutal Assault 2020 info 5


About a month has passed and here are another bands confirmed. All fans of softer spiritual stuff will be happy because Alcest will visit the fortress with their new album. Is it shoegaze, blackgaze, post metal? Just words which does not matter at all. It is going to be fabulous. Another atmospheric stuff will be given to us by melodic doomy music of NAILED TO OBSCURITY. Much darker mix of atmosphere, death, doom and black metal will be presented by Gregor from PARADISE LOST, but now with STRIGOI.

More brutal death metal in its traditional way shall be performed by the American classic – OBITUARY and SUFFOCATION. FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY will grand us some electronic and industrial vibed stuff. Electronic stuff is used by other band, which is also inspired by noise, rock, grind and is much weirder. It is Japanese MELT-BANANA with characteristic vocal of Yasuko.

Not for the first time here, guys from EXHORDER will pummel some thrash metal into us. Not that much famous, but they also were probably the inspiration to legendary and newer PANTERA. Last time when EXHORDER were here, was damn awesome.

Brutal Assault 2020 Info 4


The end of the year is near and here is the new dose of confirmed metal. Kings of metalcore AS I LAY DYING appears on the lineup. Next another similar act is THE AGONIST from Canada and also BUTCHER BABIES with their killing lady duo singers.

BENIGHTED are adding to the path of fast madness with brutal music. On similar note another grinders appear – EXCREMENTORY GRINDFUCKERS, but instead of serious darkness, with their humour and „dancing“ party vibe.

Black leather jacket guys with hoodies from Portland are now at Brutal Assault too. UADA is not a cheap knockoff of MGLA. Their show is far from stoick as the Poland counterpart with more active approach. Good equally, indeed. Another black metal is represented by a legend a pioneer of the genre – MAYHEM.

BLOODBATH or BLOOD INCANTATION are new death metal addition there.

Music lover can enjoy legendary DEVIN TOWSEND and will bring new album to the festival.
