No need to wait any longer, since you all definitely want to hear what bands we've booked for BRUTAL ASSAULT 2019 so far. Let‘s start then with German thrash metal giants DESTRUCTION, who will nail many of you moshers to the walls of the fortress. The band is in the best possible shape and crushes stages like never before. We’ll stick with thrash metal, even though with a bit more groove to it with EKTOMORF comming to introduce us their new album 'Fury' (2018). Another groove sensation comes with JINJER and their charismatic frontwoman Tatiana Shmailyuk behind the microphone, also introducing BA fans to their new album.
Cold and sorrow will come with two bands from (where else than) Finland. We are talking about funeral doom act SHAPE OF DESPAIR, whom you can remember from BRUTAL ASSAULT six years ago COUNTING HOURS ushering the fortress into shadows with their depressive sorrowful rock. And now, the hearts of all death metal fans shall start to race! We are comming with three bands representing differnet dephts of this genre. Brazilian commando KRISIUN and their crushing, hot-blooded death metal. The old-school side of things will be presented by JUNGLE ROT from USA, bringing their new self-titled album. And finally we have CYTOTOXIN, crazy band with a mental show playing Chernobyl death metal.
And the last name for this update are legendary essence of NY/HC – AGNOSTIC FRONT! Crossing the pond to celebrate their 35 year anniversary with a tour, the band also releases autobiography of Roger Miret. So you can look forward for a very special show in our beloved fortress!

Here are all the bands confirmed for BRUTAL ASSAULT 2019 so far: A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, AGNOSTIC FRONT, ANNAL NATHRAKH, COUNTING HOURS, CYTOTOXIN, DESTRUCTION, EKTOMORF, GUTALAX, HEILUNG, JINJER, JUNGLE ROT, KRISIUN, MESHUGGAH, NAPALM DEATH, PERFECITIZEN, RAISED FIST, ROTTING CHRIST, SHAPE OF DESPAIR, SAOR, TESTAMENT, UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION & WOLFBRIGADE.

Many of you have asked and the question is YES, we are bringing The Keep - Ambient Lodge stage this year again! K.A.L. next to Horror Cinema will offer you an extra dimension of music, cozy retreat with absinth bar for all sensitive souls who want to run away from crowded places for a while.

This year´s K.A.L. stage is proud to announce a strong representation of female artists, who will perform as front-women or as complete soloists of their musical projects. Namely LAMIA VOX, SHE SPREAD SORROW, HECATE, LAHKÁ MÚZA or LOFN. There are also several musicians performing at the festival in well-know bands and K.A.L. stage will introduce them with more obscure solo projects. This purpose is strongly essential for K.A.L. stage since its inception.

This year we have also a large number of domestic artists, which also corresponds to the main idea of K.A.L. stage as a support platform for (not only) domestic ambient and industrial-noise scene. Last but not least, we do not forget all-night-running freetekno session from Igra sound system from Wednesday to Saturday.


Complete K.A.L. stage lineup for 2018 is following:
777 Babalon (SK)
Angel Epilepsia (SK)
Apoptose (D)

We still have few more bands to spice the whole thing up. So here comes the very last update. Canadian hardcore machine COMEBACK KID will shake fortress walls with unstoppable energy of sharp guitars and one-of-a-kind vocals of Andrew Neufeld. One of the top hardcore bands nowadays will drag you into the pit after seven long years.

Regarding comebacks, we are more than excited to welcome back TOXIC HOLOCAUST, a band you can always count on if you want some classic straightforward no-bulshit 80s thrash metal. Do not hesitate and apply for master's degree in headbanging since Joel Grind's squad will give you a truly old school lesson!

On the other hand, Australian ESKHATON would please everybody who admire chaotically brutal and nihilistic death metal in vein of Portal. If you expect traditional structures and hooks and obvious riffs, then you should move along. Eskhaton are all about violence, chaos, intensity and bestial wrath.

Among all those recorded-in-a-cave bands, there are only few winners and Chilean black/death metallers ORACULUM are definitely one of them. Their blasphemous craft worships relentless barbarity of all those proto black and death metal classics and brings you back to era when metal was purely underground.
