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.

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.

LORNA SHORE – release “Death Portrait” from “Immortal”


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.

Brutal Assault 2020 Info 2


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.

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.
