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.
Here is the second update for new bands confirmed. From Ukraine, 1914 will bring us their war poetry in their specific black metal way. In the same genre, but again, with own obscurity or weirdness, SIGH of Japan shall see the stages of Josefov‘s areal. From European south, Italians OTTONE PESANTE trio will continue in avandgarde while the strong drums are in company of a thrumpet a trombone.
Modern fans who prefer some trendier stuff shall enjoy metal core of WHILE SHE SLEEPS or RING OF SATURN, STATIC-X. Harder technical stuff will be given to us by great BEYOND CREATION.
Old school fans can expect bands like VADER, NECROPHOBIC. There will be also other matador from Britain. CRADLE OF FILTH, this time with their presentation of Cruelty and the Beast which belong to their top albums and it is fine classic of genre overall.
More new bands in a poster. Stay tuned for more info.

DAY 2 – THURSDAY
Thursday was a much more interesting day for me at the main stages. I am not so into thrash metal. I practically never listen to it at home, but when I am somewhere, I usually enjoy it. And thanks to my friend Marek, who owns many old casettes at home, Exhorder was suggested to me. As I know only some known big names this was totally new to me. Hell, this was great. Superb music, entertaining musicians. Many compare this band to Pantera, many say Pantera has even been influences by Exhorder who have been playing since the 80’s. Many fans are having a beef between each other. No matter what, this is highly recommended even if their last albums are from early 90’s.
