SEVERE TORTURE have been busy honing their metal skills in their native Holland and are set to play two massive metal festivals: The Party-San in Germany and Brutal Assault in the Czech Republic. SEVERE TORTURE have been focusing on preparing for The Party San in Germany,
which features death metal standards such as Six Feet Under and Cryptopsy, and the Brutal Assault Festival in the Czech Republic featuring Fear Factory, fellow Earache band Ephel Duath, and much more blazing metal. SEVERE TORTURE are also gearing up for a full supporting tour with VADER and GOD DETHRONED for fall and are aiming to return to the studio in early 2007 to record new material.
SEVERE TORTURE'S latest effort, "Fall of the Despised" is available on the US and UK Earache web stores. You can check out some of their material on the band's MySpace page.
The 11th edition of the Brutal Assault festival is scheduled for August 10th - 12th in Svojsice U Prelouce (100 km east of Prague), Czech Republic.
Organizers have issued the following update:
This year’s event promises more impressive expansion and confirms that the organizers don’t intend to stagnate. On the contrary, from year to year, the festival’s program is more and more various and promises more and more foreign metal crowd-pullers for the fans of promiscuous extreme genres. Thanks to the participation of many first-rate metal bands, this event aspires to become a major metal festival in central Europe.
It’s difficult to say which band can be branded as the headliner because this year’s lineup offers up several giants of the metal genre.
Great attraction, especially for fans of atmospheric or symphonic black metal are Norwegians black metal gurus DIMMU BORGIR. In their case we can look for a frosty and dark concert experience.
The next exclusive guest comes from the USA. FEAR FACTORY, who were well known as a representatives of dehumanized cyber metal, but nowadays they come with a new actual face of the year 2006. More...
