The extreme metal open-air music festival BRUTAL ASSAULT is celebrating its 20th anniversary edition! Started in 1995, it takes place in an eighteenth century fortress near Prague (Czech Republic) in a place called Jaroměř. Originally mostly dedicated to grindcore, it grew to a major event with two stages, dedicated to all metal genres. This year the festival will start on Wednesday 5 August and end on Saturday 8 August.

The anniversary will be commemorated by musicians from all round the world. Europe will be represented by UK grindcore legends NAPALM DEATH, North America – by cult death metal band CANNIBAL CORPSE, South America will dance with latin nu metal Ill Niño and Asia will add an exotic touch with Indian gang DEMONIC RESURRECTION.

New confirmed bands: two bands from Netherlands, which will be represented by death metal ANTROPOMORPHIA symphonic black metal CARACH ANGREN. Cult Finnish death metallers DEMILICH have reformed and released complete anthology of their recordings and we’re more than happy to confirm that Demilich will appear on our festival stage for the first time! HEAVEN SHALL BURN will bring their healthily pissed off metalcore and Swedish doom metal icons KATATONIA will return to our festival with their full set as their latest show at last year’s edition was affected by technical and personal problems. Again from Finland, gloomy Russian-themed doom metal will be performed by KYPCK. Post-rock/shoegaze scene will be represented by LANTLÔS from Germany while MUSHROOMHEAD will perform their experimental music for the first time at our fest. The last three bands of todays batch are Brazilian crossover legends RATOS DE PORÃO, dutch goregrind quartet RECTAL SMEGMA and finally a wall of noise by sonic visionaries SUNN 0)))!
