JAROMEŘ – Old Army Fortress JOSEFOV / Czech Republic (130km east of Prague)

Brutal Assault is one of those festivals that the random American or Canadian may have glimpsed in the advertisements of Terrorizer or Metal Hammer. From afar it always looks epic, but the reality of it is beyond words. Of course I’d never met anyone that had attended it from our side of the Atlantic. Indeed, when I was there this summer, I met maybe four Canadian guys and two Americans who were only there because they worked in Germany. Otherwise, I was nearly the lone dweller of North America, minus the bands themselves. It is a shame too, because apart from Obscene Extreme (which also takes place in Czech Republic), I found Brutal Assault 2013 to be one of the greatest metal fests I’d ever attended.
