Brutal Assault 2020 info 5


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.

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

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.”
