Entropia @ 2019 Brutal Assault on the Obscure Stage

#brutalassault #brutalassault2019 #entropia

Today’s photo features one of the many bands I would have never discovered had they not happened to be playing at a festival I was going to. When unknown-to-me bands get announced at a festival I’m going to I typically add a few of their songs to my phone. If I don’t like those songs I delete them and skip the band at the festival. That was not the case with Entropia. Just the opposite happened. Each time one of their songs came on I was like, “Who is this?!?!” Amazing stuff. For fans of Pelican, Russian Circles, or heavy psychedelic music. Highly recommended with quality, noise-cancelling headphones on after your favorite intoxicant has kicked in.

Sadly, at 2019 Brutal Assault, they were on at the same time as Zuriaake and Heilung so I was unable to see the full set of any of those three bands.

Happy birthday, Dave “Old School” Matrise!

Today’s photo comes from 2018 Copenhell.

Since the last announcement several bands have been announced for 2020 Copenhell. I’m most excited to see Opeth and Iron Maiden from the list of new bands scheduled.

The quantity and quality of thrash metal bands at the 2019 Brutal Assault Festival was amazing. Off the top of my head, so I’m probably forgetting several bands, there was Violator, Anthrax, Jungle Rot, Carcass (not exactly thrash but…), Sacred Reich, Testament, Hellhammer, Demolition Hammer, Destruction, Tankard, Exumer, Metal Church, Voivod, and Sodom.

Violator appeared to have have been on speed or cocaine or something as they hit the stage almost 10 minutes early (which I’ve never seen a band do at a festival before), played (ran around and talked) like maniacs, and then went overtime (something you rarely see at festivals).

I once owned an original Sepultura “Beneath the Remains” tour t-shirt from one of their first shows ever in the USA. I wish I had taken better care of it as that would nice to have 30+ years later.

Happy birthday, Rob Caggiano!
