7.-10. augusts 2019, ierastajā vietā - Josefovas cietoksnī.
Pirmā bandu porcija bija zināma jau aizvadītā festa laikā:
+ A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH
+ ANAAL NATHRAKH
+ NAPALM DEATH
Vakar izziņoti nākošie:
+ ROTTING CHRIST
+ RAISED FIST
+ UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION
Since the presale has started on Sep 1, 2019 we would like to come with another round of bands confirmed for Brutal Assault 2019! The first band does not need any special introduction: Greek gothic black metal matadors ROTTING CHRIST are coming back to BA once again to make fortress walls vibrate with In Domine Sathana and other Satanic hymns.
High-octane bulldozer WOLFBRIGADE must please everybody whose heart beats in the rhythm of d-beat. Swedish crust gunfire is returning to BA after three years and this time with a weaponry called Run With The Hunted (2017). RAISED FIST - one of the Sweden’s longest-running yet most vital acts in the hardcore scene - will destroy the crowd under the stage with their highly explosive mix of hardcore and metal.
SAOR and HEILUNG, two bands and two different views to folk and metal. While the first produces thrilling and melancholic soundtracks for lonely wanderings in rainy Scottish Highlands, international act HEILUNG is amplified history from early medieval northern Europe.
British squad UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION is about masterful riffcraft, unfuckwithable sound, guttural howls, almighty storm of riffy and blast beats. If you look for technical death metal, this band leaves no room for argument. Talking about blast beasts, we are about to welcome Czech psychotic blastcore / death-grind PERFECITIZEN.
P.S. Biļetes cena līdz 30. aprīlim - €90.

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!

BAND UPDATE WITH TANKARD, HYPOCRISY, AND ANATHEMA!!
Here we are again with another lineup update and we truly hope this announcement will metal up your day! Last time we announced German thrashers DESTRUCTION and this time we're announcing their Teutonic compatriots TANKARD with 6,66% of thrash and alcohol in their veins!
This update spans from one side of the moshing spectrum to the other – straight, raw and relentless hardcore with a pinch of British brat-like attitude – exactly what you'd expect from the Leeds' own HIGHER POWER. Also British but bit more emotional type of music comes with the announcement of the one and only ANATHEMA, who will come to comfort your downcast souls..
There are many bands inspired by ANATHEMA, but only a few of them do it in their own unique way. One of these bands are OCEANS OF SLUMBER. These dark progressive Texans lead by the unforgettable voice of Cammie Gilbert will be a treat for lovers of dreamy and emotive melodies. We’ll stick with dark tunes for a little longer and introduce you to the death/doom metal sextet from Belarus, WOE UNTO ME, who will come with their latest work 'The Voidness Flasher' (2017).
And now something for the death dealers! New York death metal legends IMMOLATION will once again present a showcase of death metal domination. And equally important name in the genre history are the Swedish kings waking up after a long slumber – HYPOCRISY!
The last slot in this announcement belongs to the dark black metal project from Finland – VARGRAV. A shady veil of mystery is covering this group and this will be only one of the very few gigs they will do in 2019. Their set will open a window of time taking you to the 90's and will especially pleasure all the fans of LIMBONIC ART, ABIGOR, or early EMPEROR.
The line-up for BRUTAL ASSAULT 2019 so far consists of – A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, AGNOSTIC FRONT, ANNAL NATHRAKH, ANATHEMA, COUNTING HOURS, CYTOTOXIN, DESTRUCTION, EKTOMORF, GUTALAX, HEILUNG, HIGHER POWER, HYPOCRISY, IMMOLATION, JINJER, JUNGLE ROT, KRISIUN, MESHUGGAH, NAPALM DEATH, OCEANS OF SLUMBER, PERFECITIZEN, RAISED FIST, ROTTING CHRIST, SHAPE OF DESPAIR, SAOR, TANKARD, TESTAMENT, UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION, VARGRAV, WOLFBRIGADE and WOE UNTO ME.

+ ALIEN WEAPONRY
+ ELECTRIC WIZAR
+ METAL CHURCH
Let's open this update with the youngest band on the list - ALIEN WEAPONRY from New Zealand. Despite their lack of experience, these youngsters belong among the most interesting thrashing acts of the current metal scene. Now let's stay within the genre but bring a heavy dose of nostalgia, since the metal congregations will gather again to bow to a heavy metal institution build many, many years ago on a distant shore… METAL CHURCH!
The British trio TROSKA will immerse the Josefov fortress in its innovative approach and progressive melodies of their latest album Fire By The Silos. And while staying on the islands, are you ready for some dope-smoking sabbathian heavy doom? Because English horrornauts ELECTRIC WIZARD are gonna bring it no matter what! It's gonna be heavy and hazy and filthy and psychedelic in a way unmatched by any other band on the planet. And speaking of stage shrouded in a haze, the warm opium smoke will be replaced by cold Norwegian fog making your bones shiver..as TAAKE takes over Brutal Assault! ABORTED from Belgium are gonna give one of their energic lectures on skull-crushing brutality with their latest death metal output TerrorVision! Final surgical instrument in this batch is also made of British steel, because the legendary CARCASS are playing our festival again!
All the bands confirmed so far: A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, ABORTED, ALIEN WEAPONRY, AGNOSTIC FRONT, ANNAL NATHRAKH, ANATHEMA, CARCASS, COUNTING HOURS, CYTOTOXIN, DEICIDE, DESTRUCTION, DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA, EKTOMORF, ELECTRIC WIZARD, GUTALAX, HEILUNG, HIGHER POWER, HYPOCRISY, IMMOLATION, JINJER, JUNGLE ROT, KRISIUN, LIONHEART, MESHUGGAH, METAL CHURCH, MGŁA, MIDNIGHT, MYRKUR, NAPALM DEATH, NECROS CHRISTOS, OF MICE & MEN, OCEANS OF SLUMBER, PERFECITIZEN, RAISED FIST, ROTTING CHRIST, SHAPE OF DESPAIR, SAOR, TAAKE, TANKARD, TESTAMENT, TOSKA, UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION, VARGRAV, WINDHAND, WOLFBRIGADE a WOE UNTO ME.

Let’s open this mega update with black metal stormblast! Over seven years, deathlike silence has filled the halls of the world’s biggest black metal forge, whilst powers have been gathering to resurrect the band right in time for their 25th anniversary. And now DIMMU BORGIR have finally returned with a vicious work of art that is their latest album Eonian and they are coming to storm the main stage at Brutal Assault!
Wicked aural filth comes from the islands with GODFLESH, who are highly regarded as one of the pioneers of industrial metal; they took industrial to the next level with their fuse of heavy guitars and mixing it with slow drum loops and effects and their unique approach has spawned several musical styles since their conception.
Brutal Assault will also present a combo of iconic thrashers that need no introduction, ANTHRAX and SACRED REICH will make it to the fest alongside upcoming crossover thrash ministry IRON REAGAN and a staple name of the genre PRONG. Elusive French synth mastermind CARPENTER BRUT draws its influences from 80s TV shows and B-movies loaded with cheap thrills and sharp synthesizers. The mysterious and discreet man behind the pentagon – or the Brutagram as his fans would call it – evokes an encounter between Justice beats and the universe of John Carpenter. Into the brutagram at BA 2019! Through parted flesh, mental scars and waning health – from misfortune and adversity that would have broken lesser men, comes another black metal legend that almost doesn’t perform live… Welcome French titans ANTAEUS, come to your condemnation and witness Satanik Audio Violence! For the fans of modern death metal and hardcore amalgamation we are gonna have glowing hot Brits VENOM PRISON, their returning fellow countrymen ANNOTATIONS OF AN AUTOPSY and Australia‘s own THY ART IS MURDER who are on fire right now! Anglophone domination over the genre will be contested by Japanese metalcore sensation CRYSTAL LAKE, who just set an impossible bar to leap over with their latest output Helix. If you think it’s enough incredibly energic music for now, then we beg to differ because we are also gonna have vigorous metal hardcore of GET THE SHOT and American noise rock kings DAUGHTERS, who are doing one of their rare live appearances at BA 2019! Equally rare live are CULT OF LUNA and these Swedish visionaries have been praised for their live performances for a long time and Brutal Assault will host one of their few appearances in 2019. You shouldn’t miss this opportunity to witness a shattering audio-visual feast of iconoclastic proportions! Other thoughtful bands for thinking audience on the list are the German musician collective THE OCEAN with their immersive audial experience, US progressivists AFTER THE BURIAL and Norwegian masters of stellar Avant-Garde MANES. You can also look forward for rising stars of Danish scene SLÆGT, who play an epic blackened heavy metal but without any kind of limitation when approaching the style, their compatriots TAPHOS with their gut-wrenching death metal and progressive heavy metal outlet of Dutch singer Anneke van Giersbergen under the moniker VUUR. Gloomy rock doom in the end, the very godfathers of the genre THE OBSESSED who were formed already back in 1976 by Scott "Wino" Weinrich are back from the dead to perform for you at BA 2019!
In the end, we have some band news – A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH are unable to perform on Brutal Assault, because of the technical difficulties.
So far the line-up goes:
AFTER THE BURIAL,
ANNOTATIONS OF AN AUTOPSY,
CULT OF LUNA,
DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA,
GET THE SHOT,
OF MICE & MEN,
OCEANS OF SLUMBER,
SHAPE OF DESPAIR,
THY ART IS MURDER,
WOE UNTO ME.

+ DR. LIVING DEAD
+ ANIMALS AS LEADER
+ CAR BOMB
+ LETTERS FROM THE COLONY
The only predictable thing about Canadian cosmic-metal warriors VOIVOD is that they will forever be unpredictable. On the warpath for more than 35 years, VOIVOD have pushed their sound relentlessly forward, constructing imaginative musical realms with each endeavor. They literally changed the face of thrash metal in the ‘80s, forged new prog-metal ground in the ‘90s, and kept up with changing times and lineups in the 2000s with fresh, inspired music and they’re back with a new album The Wake, which keeps pushing the limits!
Appearing in 2002, even before the rebirth of thrash metal scene worldwide, VIOLATOR was formed with the purpose of rescuing the spontaneity and anger that seemed forgotten in the metal scene. Coming from the center Brazil, Brasilia, VIOLATOR is one of the most intense South American bands and after years of waiting, they will finally thrash BA! Doing so they will be joined by masked Swedish crossover deviants DR. LIVING DEAD and legendary veterans of Boston HC scene SLAPSHOT!
ENSIFERUM are true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal and with their latest output Two Paths they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre, so it was about a time they returned to BA!
Polish death machine DECAPITATED is back with a bang! Their new album Anticult highlights just how vital have remained two decades deep into their career. They have long been undeniable masters of their craft and they are expanding their parameters with this album, which should elevate the band's profile beyond the death metal realm in which it has dominated for years. And now they’re coming for the BA crowd! And speaking of technical death metal, of all the amazing technical death metal bands out there, very few can write memorable catchy songs with extreme technicality like French killers GOROD. Get ready for intelligent, deftly crafted flights of musicianship…that will rip your head off!
Sometimes, a band’s music registers just as seismically on an emotional wavelength as it does on a sonic spectrum. And one of those unique bands are ANIMALS AS LEADERS, who reimagine, reinterpret, and refresh instrumental prog, experimental metal, modern jazz, alternative, and even world music to a point where the reaction becomes primal. Consistently delivering a captivating show, their show will surely be one of the musicianship highlights of the festival.
New York’s CAR BOMB detonate a vicious blast of wildly technical and progressive modern metal. The Long Island quartet's attack is relentless and suffocating: vicious jazz-inspired blasts shift into mechanistic, canyon-wide grooves. Schizophrenic, whisper-to-a-scream vocals seem to spiral out of control, only to snap back lock-step into the churning assault. Make sure to witness their BA debut!
Progressive Swedes LETTERS FROM THE COLONY had proven that they could marry various elements of death metal, metalcore and jazz into a complex hybrid and produce something strangely familiar yet truly original. And this list finished with Chinese atmospheric black metal ZURIAAKE.
So far the line-up goes:
ABORTED, AFTER THE BURIAL, ALIEN WEAPONRY, AGNOSTIC FRONT, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, ANNAL NATHRAKH, ANATHEMA, ANNOTATIONS OF AN AUTOPSY, ANTAEUS, ANTHRAX, BATUSHKA, CAR BOMB, CARCASS, CARPENTER BRUT, COUNTING HOURS, CRYSTAL LAKE, CULT OF LUNA, CYTOTOXIN, DR. LIVING DEAD, DECAPITATED, DEICIDE, DAUGHTERS, DESTRUCTION, DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA, EKTOMORF, ELECTRIC WIZARD, EMPEROR, ENSIFERUM, GET THE SHOT, GODFLESH, GOROD, GUTALAX, HEILUNG, HIGHER POWER, HYPOCRISY, IMMOLATION, IRON REAGAN, JINJER, JUNGLE ROT, KRISIUN, LETTERS FROM THE COLONY, LIONHEART, MANES, MESHUGGAH, METAL CHURCH, MGŁA, MIDNIGHT, MYRKUR, NAPALM DEATH, NECROS CHRISTOS, OF MICE & MEN, OCEANS OF SLUMBER, PERFECITIZEN, PRONG, RAISED FIST, ROTTING CHRIST, SACRED REICH, SAOR, SHAPE OF DESPAIR, SLÆGT, SLAPSHOT, TAAKE, TANKARD, TAPHOS, TESTAMENT, THE OBSESSED, THE OCEAN, THY ART IS MURDER, TOSKA, UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION, VARGRAV, VENOM PRISON, VIOLATOR, VOIVOD, VUUR, WINDHAND, WOLFBRIGADE, WOE UNTO ME a ZURIAAKE.
