FESTIVAL REPORT: BRUTAL ASSAULT Aug 8-11 (CZ) DAY 1


Photography & Report by Pavel Kovalančík / Dark Art Conspiracy

INTRODUCTION, GOOD & BAD

Once again, one of the biggest metal festivals from Czech is over and here is the report about some of its music and organization. As mainly a photographer and not pure journalist, take it with a grain of salt with my subjective approach and taste in music more based towards black metal and atmospheric stuff overall.

The festival was held officially from August 8th-11th, but there was a small warm up party the day before with Suicidal Tendencies headlining. Unfortunately, I arrived at midnight so it was all over and by the time I unpacked my stuff, did quick town visit for some beer and then get some sleep in a four-wheel coffin.

On March 16th, cult metallers PARADISE LOST will release a remastered version of their legendary seventh studio album, ‘Host’, and a first-ever pressing of the songs on vinyl.

The band presents the first ‘Host’ album trailer, in which singer Nick Holmes and guitarist Greg Mackintosh muse on the being signed to a major label in the nineties…and the extravagant, weird and wonderful consequences. Watch as the guys talk about building a studio in actress Jane Seymour’s mansion for the recording of the album and having to sleep in a bed that WET WET WET’s Marti Pellow had been staying in previously, after discovering some dubious literature in the bedside drawer:

PARADISE LOST TO RELEASE ‘HOST – REMASTERED’ IN MARCH


Paradise Lost - Host (Remastered) - Artwork.jpg

On March 16th, Britain’s cult metallers Paradise Lost will release a remastered version of their legendary seventh studio album, ‘Host’ and a first-ever pressing of the songs on vinyl. Originally released in 1999, ‘Host’ earned Paradise Lost their reputation as West Yorkshire’s musical chameleon, as it saw the band moving further away from their previous death metal roots to a melancholic and catchier electropop sound.

Singer Nick Holmes comments: “With the ‘Host’ album we wanted to take the ‘One Second’ concept further and make a very dark album with even more subtlety. It was a bold leap from all our previous albums, a leap too far some would say, but for me, the new remastered version really shows it’s still one of the band’s strongest albums in terms of song writing, atmosphere and sheer misery.”

unnamed4444

DAWN OF DISEASE’s sound is determined by abrasiveness and melody, where subliminal harmonies and killer riffs are accompanied by rapid blastbeats and pounding doublebass. Tomasz’s vocals are a cross between dark growlings, aggressive screams and in-your-face shouting. Although a big number of typical Swedish elements can still be found, DAWN OF DISEASE are more than able to add an their own style beyond these bounds and are ready to enthrall Metal On The Hill Festival!
