Brutal Assault 25 Bands update


Hey all, there is some new bands update for upcomming Brutal Assault (Aug 10-14th 2021) if things go well.

We can expect thrash metal legend predecessor of Machine Head. Jep, Phil Demmel with the VIO-LENCE. They should also have some new material during the festival. British ONSLAUGHT also introduce their newest stuf. Other announced band is going to be REVOCATION.

Little bit of death metal now. From mighty metal Finland there are going to be shows of INSOMNIUM or MORS PRINCIPIUM EST. USA will deliver us faster BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, RIVERS OF NIHIL or wacky NEKROGOBLIKON with their green imp. UNDERGANG is another legend for the event. Their old school, rotten death metal is the top notch classic. PHLEBOTOMIZED will represent combo of death and doom.

Melancholical side of doom metal will be represented by German AHAB. More experimental approach could be expected from French REGARDE LES HOMMES TOMBER. Britain will be represented by WINTERFYLLETH with their emotinal additives of black and folk melodies.

People who wanna have a little rest from serious stuff might be happy for RED FANG or JOHN GARCIA AND THE BAND OF GOLD.

Brutal Assault is open also for other experiments. DIE KRUPPS are the pioneers of industrial and electro rock. We will witness Norwegian MANES. Local scene cannot miss as well and now with the Czech EBM legend VANESSA.

Unfortunatelly, some bands are also cancelled. These are BIRDS IN ROW, KMFDM, KVERLERTAK, SVARTISDAUDI, VADER, WORMROT.

Brutal Assault will be five day event and consists of 150 interprets. there are confirmation of 2/3 bands right now.

PHOTO REPORT: ALCEST, BIRDS IN ROW & KÆLAN MIKLA


Alcest, Birds in Row and Kælan Mikla played a sold out show at Tavastia in Helsinki on February 18, 2020. The intensity was solid through all three bands in very unique ways. Although Kælan Mikla suffered some show stopping technical difficulties, they put on a positively unforgettable show. Their dreamy and somewhat eerie aesthetic (including incense and glow wands) and chill but intense vibes set a unique atmosphere to start the show. Birds in Row shattered that with a full volume hardcore set that left me wondering how the light bulbs they used in their decor didn’t shatter. It was a very drastic switch genre wise and energy wise, but Alcest pulled it all together. They had a balanced mix of both chill, dreamy and crazy energy. The band seemed real present at the gig, into their music and connecting flawlessly with the audience. Although the gig was sold out, they made it seem like a much more intimate show, connecting everyone. They played mostly songs from the new album Spiritual Instinct but snuck in a few classics. Although they left me extremely content, I cannot wait to see them again at John Smith Festival.

Here are some photos from the evening:
