Interesting additions to 2020 Brutal Assault

#brutalAssault2020 #brutalassault @seventhrule @authorpunisher @orangefeeling

A few stories about some of the latest additions to the 2020 Brutal Assault lineup…

The first is from just a couple years ago. On Thursday of the 2017 Roskilde Festival I was planning on seeing Oathbreaker and High on Fire. In between I had no plans, but I ran into some friends I had recently met at Copenhell, or maybe this is the night I met them for the first time. I don’t remember. In any event, they said I had to check out Author & Punisher, a one-man band featuring a guy who made his own instruments, and the instruments were far from traditional. There would be no guitars, drums, etc. What an experience that was!

Static-X and Cradle of Filth I learned about from “Iron Mike’s Metal Video” in 2000 and 2001. Iron Mike had a late night, public access show that I would watch after putting my, then little, kids to bed. Static-X was one of the few bands that would play in Southern Oregon so I ended up seeing them a few times while Wayne Static was still alive. I can’t imagine them without him, but maybe I’ll get that chance next summer.

Cradle of Filth reminded me a bit of Sabbat, who I was familiar with since the late 80s, but they seemed to really be pushing things. Ultimately, I became a fan which led to my interest in many other bands including Dimmu Borgir.

Happy birthday, Galder!

And since I didn’t do one of these in 2017, a couple of favorites from late in 2017:

Pagan Altar, The Room of Shadows

Satyricon, Deep Calleth Upon Deep

For 2019 I’m really looking forward to new Tool and Rammstein (and seeing both bands too).
