Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls, children of all ages! Things...Just...Got...REAL!
That right, Another day, another rediculous lineup announcement from Brutal Assault festival 2016.
The festival organisers informed us that the first band in this batch of announcements comes from Belgium
and is revolving around Sven de Caluwé – yes we’re talking about the butchers from ABORTED! Returning to the festival after many years are ARCH ENEMY, this time with the notoriously blue haired singer Alissa White-Gluz as a frontwoman!
We’re also extremely pleased to welcome Swiss masters of technical thrash CORONER to the line-up for the
first time! Pioneers of the Gothenburg scene DARK TRANQUILLITY will appear at Brutal Assault 2016 alongside one of the hottest bands in modern extreme genres ESKIMO CALLBOY.
If you’re an old school death metal fan (escpecially in the vein of Leprosy by Death) Brutal Assault have
some GRUESOME for you. For the fans of experimental music on the other hand we have HYPNO5E from France and Norwegians LEPROUS, who have already played our fest as Ihsan’s live band. Esoteric atmosphere laden bands will be represented by Portugese legends MOONSPELL and and the American Egyptologists NILE! Florida death metal scene will not be represented by it’s dispiles GRUESOME but also by the mighty co-founders OBITUARY, who are in a magnificent shape! Not only the last time announced Insomnium will represent the Finnish version of melodic death metal, they will be joined by OMNIUM GATHERUM. The final unholy trinity of black metal acts consists of TAAKE, SATYRICON, who will perform a 20th Anniversary Nemesis Divina set, and of SIGH from Japan!
