As promised, here’s your Christmas present, two major bands of the metal scene!
The first one is JUDAS PRIEST, the pioneers of the NWOBHM who, after nearly 40 years of musical
entertainment, have decided to honor us with their presence at Hellfest 2011! And what a honor
knowing that they have just announced that it will be their final world tour! So this might be the last
chance you’ll get to see these legends live! Are you willing to take the risk?
The second band is TRUST, the only French Hard Rock band to have known a worldwide success in
the 80’s with for instance their hit “Antisocial”! But this won’t be any kind of show as they would be
returning to play only their old stuff, from their first 3 albums, offering you a concert 100% Hard Rock!
Their old fans have been waiting for this show for years, and the younger lot will be able to discover
the French Hard Rock legend live!
Dear BA friends, although still in 2010, the 16th edition of the Brutal Assault Festival is already knocking on doors.

There is a second round of new bands which are confirmed for next Brutal Assault.
Celebration for all technical death metal lovers is confirmation of Canadian masters of genre - Gorgus. On the other side - within the frame of classical conception of a genre there is Vader from Poland. After a period of slumber are back the butchers Exhumed with their old school death / grind.
