PHOTO REPORT: TALVIHELVETTI 2020


Photo report: Talvihelvetti – January 10, 2020 in Tampere, Finland –
Lord of the Lost, Torchia, Fear of Domination, Vorna, Insomnium and Machinae Supremacy.

This one day festival took place in Tampere, Finland during the darkest days of Winter. Bands included both foreign and local acts, as well as a diverse array of genres. Lord of the Lost, hailing from Germany, opened the night on the main stage, while Machinae Supremacy from Sweden closed the night on the small stage. Other bands ranged from Melodic Death Metal, Industrial Metal, and Thrash. Fear of Domination had a quick lineup change due to illness which also prevented them from continuing on to Seinäjoki, where most of the other bands continued on Saturday for a second night of mid-winter madness.

Here are some photos from the evening –

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.

More bands in a poster. Stay tuned for more info.

Brutal Assault 2020 Info 1


Before bands update, firstly some information for the next 25th anniversary. In near days, there will be new options added to our e-shop regarding the festival services like tribunes, camps, parking, hotels. Now some stuff about the bands.

MYRKUR has canceled the show this year due her late stage pregnancy, but the next year we will withness her for the third time. Hopefully with no issues as the last time when the show was stopped by fire fighters intervention. From black metal waters, can expect faster show of DARK FUNERAL or the other classic, VENOM.

Thrash metal followers will be happy for ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS performing Vulgar display of PANTERA. Other band mostly dwelling in undergroud, while perfroming next to Slayer for example, is Canadian RAZOR.

For some death metal fan‘s satisfaction ASPHYX or interesting NOCTURNUS AD with their keyboard implementation and interesting spacy feeling shall be playing. Even more extreme, WORMROT is going to slay us with their grindcore. With a little additive of death metal, funeral doom EVOKEN will perform.

DESPISED ICON will fill the place with their modern core music and new Purgatory album. ATARI TEENAGE RIOT also joins the festival.

From the home Czech bands, we will see provocative HENTAI CORPORATION with their mix of hardcore, pop, thrash.

Stay tuned for more.
