BRUTAL ASSAULT XXIV NEWS

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.

BRUTAL ASSAULT XXIV NEWS

 

HELLHAMMER MUSIC PERFORMED BY TOM GABRIEL WARRIOR'S "TRIUMPH OF DEATH" CONFIRMED FOR THE HELLFEST FESTIVAL


Hellhammer existed for a mere two years, from May 1982 to May 1984. During this time, the band wrote material for three demos, one 12" EP, and the legendary Death Metal compilation album, along with a number of unrecorded songs. In light of Hellhammer's now mythically iconic status in the global metal scene, it is almost inconceivable that most of this music has never been performed life.

Hellhammer's successor group, Celtic Frost, formed by ex-Hellhammer members Tom Gabriel Warrior and Martin Eric Ain, initially played two of Hellhammer's songs but soon abandoned this habit due to the band rapidly developing its own
material. Tom Gabriel Warrior's Triptykon, founded in 2008, have played one or the other rare Hellhammer song during special occasions. The vast body of Hellhammer's work remains unperformed, however.

 

Until now.

The resurrection of the music of Hellhammer has been an idea Tom Gabriel Warrior and Martin Eric Ain have discussed for many years, sparked not least by their renewed collaboration in the reformed Celtic Frost in the 2000s and by the years of work on Warrior's second book Only Death Is Real (2009), which details the history of Hellhammer and early Celtic Frost.

Tom Gabriel Warrior: "Hellhammer will never return and will never be reformed. It is absolutely impossible to reform a band so closely linked to a very specific and unique period in time. I never considered it, no matter how substantial the offers that were pitched to me over the years. But Hellhammer's music exists, and it is an extremely important part of my life's path. And I would like to play it onstage before my demise."

The first step towards the realization of Triumph Of Death, named after Hellhammer's most infamous song and intended to be a very respectful and authentic tribute to Hellhammer, were taken years ago. Triumph Of Death consists of some of Warrior's closest friends; individuals who not only love this music but truly understand it. The line-up emulates Hellhammer's final incarnation of April/May 1984, when the group had added an additional guitarist.

 

Triumph Of Death will commence playing Hellhammer's music onstage in 2019. It is a project with an open end. Apart from wage considerations to perhaps release an occasional live EP, Triumph Of Death will not record any new music but is solely dedicated to performing both well-know and obscure Hellhammer songs. The project is based in Zurich, Switzerland.

 

Triumph of Death will perform live at the Hellfest Open Air Festival on June 21st, 2019.

Triumph Of Death:
Tom Gabriel Warrior (Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Triptykon) - voice/guitars
Mia Wallace (Niryth, The True Endless, Kirlian Camera) - bass
Michael Zech (Secrets Of The Moon, Odem Arcarum) - guitar/vocals
Alessandro Commerio (Forgotten Tomb, Hiems) - drums
