Brutal Assault – Jaromer Czech

September 19th, 2017

BRUTAL ASSAULT 2017
JAROMER CZECH 

The experience at Brutal Assault 2016 was an ultimate great and brilliant one that returning to the festival was definitely a must. It isn’t any wonder why Brutal Assault is an insane credible pleasant fest because of the stellar line-up, a lot of great food,  a wonderful old fortress as a festival area, and above all….cheap beer! This festival easily blows most other festivals away. Once again the line-up  was huge, but still varied, covering a wide range of extreme from the side to the side. All in all 110 bands had once again been booked for the four day metal inferno. Trying to witness as many bands as possible was quite challenging and near impossible. Here is the brief article of the mighty Brutal Assault.

New PRONG Out This Friday

July 25th, 2017

The new PRONG-Album “Zero Days” is another monster of an album, another step towards refining the perfect PRONG-Sound and another album that lacks any filler or lacklustre moment.

Musically, it hits home from the first bars of the mighty opener “However It May End” to the last bars of the albums closing track “Wasting Of The Dawn”. Every track is it’s own emotional roller-coaster ride, chock-full of massive riffage, ironclad grooves and topped off by Victor’s ever-improving vocal delivery.

“Zero Days” was once again produced by Tommy Victor, with trusted collaborator Chris Collier as co-producer and engineer.

PRONG Kicks off North American Tour

September 10th, 2014

PRONG_RSS_7inch_RZ.indd
New York Metal mainstays PRONG are hitting the the road beginning tomorrow September 10th in Los Angeles, CA through October 14th in San Francisco, CA. This is the band’s first North American headline tour behind Ruining Lives The tour.  Many of the dates will see PRONG playing alongside thrash masters Overkill.  Following a quick break the band will be taking part in Slipknot’s “Knotfest” October 25th in San Bernardino, CA.

“PRONG starts our U.S. / Canada tour tomorrow September 9th at the legendary Whiskey A- Go -Go in West Hollywood, CA. This is our first trip on this continent since our release of our Ruining Lives LP, after two successful European tours. We have a new 7” single out “Remove, Separate Self” and will be selling it at shows as well as our first “Turnover” 7″. This is so cool because it reminds me of the old days when we sold our demo tapes and our initial EP “Primitive Origins” at shows. So please check out our dates at http://www.prongmusic.com. We are also excited about joining up with our old buddies OVERKILL on a good amount of our dates. So come on out and I’ll see you on the road.

Check out the band’s new video for “Remove, Separate Self” HERE.

Bloodstock 2014

Bloodstock has become something of a staple holiday for many metal heads, with its fine selection of musical delights, the drinking until dawn, great company, dressing up and of course the bin jousting! What more could you want besides all of this?

HELLFEST 2013

July 17th, 2013

Hellfest Festival 2013

@ Clisson, France

21st– 23rd June 2013

Review by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs
Photography by Tess Donohoe  Hellfest

It may be some people’s epitome of hell, Michael Buble fans I’m looking at you, but for the metal/rock community Hellfest’s towering gateway looks positively pearly. This year’s line-up is so jam-packed that I was looking for the little glass jars and labels. You’d make a fortune if you could bottle any number of the diverse scope of bands on the bill, with the riffs left in natch, but I’d like them to play their sets first.

Once inside that gateway the layout is much the same as last year, and that isn’t meant in a well-they-clearly-couldn’t-be-arsed sense, because Hellfest could teach most others a thing or 20 on how to put together a fan-friendly festival. Except when it comes to the number of toilets on site that is.

Whilst the Hellfest tree still dominates in its stark simplicity, the hidden beer gardens have gained a snazzy gateway of their own, which invites you into the woodlands. Instead of a fairytale monster at the end of the path though, you’ll find a winebar, which is win-win really. And at night the scrap-metal merch stands and bars still glow with their own rooftop fires.

Stage-wise we’ve got Main Stage 1 and 2, which continue their staggered times so that as one plays, the other sets up, and vice versa. The result is no waiting around for soundchecks or bands to start, just back-to-back bam-bam-bam metal. A similar set-up is in place at the Altar and the Temple, where you can find black metal, death metal and the like, then there’s the Valley which is home to the stoner and doom types, and the Warzone where the punk and hardcore drops.

Hellfest 2013 – it’s like being welcomed home.
