With 8 members divided between Italy and France, symphonic metallers Aevum are set to return with their third full-length “Multiverse”, which is scheduled to be released on March 27th, 2020 through darkTunes Music Group.
On “Multiverse”, epic tunes and electronic elements will encounter hard riffs, with charming voices of Lucille Nightshade and Hydra carrying the ears and hearts of their fans from the third to another dimension.
Another legendary band confirmed. Legend among the legend in heavy music. Fathers of extreme metal who exist more than fourty years now. With their frontman King Diamond they changed musical world and inspired so many musicians of heavy metal and also black metal as a part of its first wave.
After about twenty years of their last concert activities MERCYFUL FATE returns with spectacular unholy show. Another clasicc dream came true!
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.
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.
The third band update confirms the the combination of elite deathgrind with spectacular voice work of Californian CATTLE DECAPITATION and their presentation with the new Death Atlas album. Not that extreme modern shall please the fans with a melodical, symphonic deathcore of SHADOW OF INTENT. Thrashers adding some death metal in their art are FUELED BY FIRE and the next year they also will release a new album we can expect to see songs from at Brutal Assault.
There will be also KATATONIA from Sweden with their slower melancholic riffs in a progressive way. Some spicing of the festival will be in the form of FEVER 333 and their combination of rock, hip-hop, punk, post HC, D‘n‘B. Other experimental band is PSYKUP with their mix of progressive death, jazz, punk, hardcore.
The blacker side is represented by one and only MYSTICUM. Other new black metal project is IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT with their dissonant jazzy side of black metal music.
LORNA SHORE’s forthcoming album, “Immortal”, which is due for a worldwide release on January 31st 2020, is nothing short of a shock of blackened, symphonic ambitions and epic intents.
Click HERE for a video for the brand new song “Death Portrait”:
Austin Archey (drums) says: “’Death Portrait’ unveils the intensity and emotion we put behind this entire new record. Paired with a live video featuring footage from our first US headliner, I believe this gives the listener a proper journey through the darkness that was used to create ‘Immortal’ as a whole “
Formed in 2010, LORNA SHORE were quick to surpass “local band” expectations with 2012’s “Bone Kingdom”-EP and it’s follow-up, 2013’s “Malificium”-EP. Through each release, LORNA SHORE continues to prove themselves to be an increasingly formidable force and a ferocious live proposition. 2017’s sophomore LP, “Flesh Coffin” showed a band that had moved beyond mere “deathcore” trappings and had evolved into a modern metal band, as uncompromising and accomplished as any of their contemporaries or influences.
“We became the band we wanted to be, rather than just the product of our early influences,” says guitarist Adam De Micco. “’Immortal’ is the latest chapter of that story of us as a band, as players and as people.” Armed with new vocalist C.J. McCreery (ex-Signs of the Swarm), LORNA SHORE has made a record that stands apart from their earlier works. The earliest hints of that have come with the release of album tracks, “This Is Hell” and “Darkest Spawn”, twin deathly salvos released from LORNA SHORE’s early album sessions with producer Josh Schroeder (Battlecross, King 810, For Today) at Random Awesome Studios in Midland, MI. Recording for the album.
“Immortal” is the beginning of another chapter for LORNA SHORE and is available in the following formats: CD Jewelcase, LP+CD, Digital Album. The following vinyl colours will be available apart from black vinyl:
200x clear via CM Distro
200x mint green via Impericon
200x dark green via EMP
In North America the vinyl edition will be a neon yellow LP.
