ADRESTIA (Sweden) – It seems that bands from this country are sued to us. Another great swedish crust / death metal band for Fear Fest 2018 is Adrestia. Band with current or ex-members from bands like Shades Of Grey, Snake Tongue or FUTURE RUINS. Perfect mix of classic d-beat / punk heavily influenced by old good scandinavian death metal. Their debut album „The Art Of Modern Warfare“ is the beast! We can´t wait for their live set in Prague again!
APPARÄTUS (Malaysia) – Ha! Scandinavian käng which is not from northern Europe? Yes! So welcome in line-up for Fear Fest 2018 raw d-beat / punk band from Malaysia. APPÄRATUS! For fans of bands like Anti-Cimex, Crude SS, Totalitär or Mob 47. Dirty d-takt answer from faraway Asia.
ASOCIAL (Sweden) – Ok, this is START! First announced band of let’s say first issue of Fear Fest (aka well known Punx Picnic 2018 if you want) are mighty swedish legends Asocial! Band which is essential for the whole punk or crust scene. Asocial belongs to other scandinavian käng legends like Mob 47, Anti Cimex or Crude SS (to name a few). And btw their new album is killer! … It’s a must to go to Prague at the end of May 2018!
BARBAR (Slovakia) Dark d-beat / metal with members or ex-members from bands like Beton, Munícia, Krutá Zima, Mansklig Ladugard, Lutra, Goatcraft or Demolizer. Bratislava city! Their first show outside the Slovakia ever!
DISTRESS (Russia) – The Russian d-beat / crust machinery DISTRESS has been visited Prague for a few times and all their gigs were worth it. And because they have plan for another european tour in spring 2018 it is logical that they will play at Fear Fest 2018. They know how to destroy you, trust us. So we are slowly closing our line-up …
EARTH CRUST DISPLACEMENT (Germany) – We love Toda and Toda loves us. It’s easy, that is simply relationship between FOE crew and bands, where you can find this guy, who is (btw) running d-beat punk label Rawmantic Disasters (and UG hip-hop label Britcore Rawmance) plus he is the greatest organizer of punk gigs in Berlin ever! So it has some kind of logic, that his bands or projects you will see here at Fear Fest 2018. So ladies and gentlemen, welcome in current line-up – EARTH CRUST DISPLACEMENT. Raw and dirty d-beat like old good Disclose or Framtid. Fear Fest 2018 in Prague!
FEAR OF EXTINCTION (Czech Republic) – D-beat / crust-punk from Prague. These guys are the hosts of Fear Fest. Fear Of Extinction still wanna kick your ass with their noisy d-beat.
GRÄNSLANDET (Sweden) – Slow down. Gränslandet HC. Great raw mix of classic scandinavian d-beat / crust with sludge / doom parts. Really nice mix and proof should be their debut album „Solidum“ (link below) and new upcoming album which will be out during next year. And hell yeah this band incl. members from bands like Myteri, Vengeance Of Karma or Socialstyrelsen.
KRUTA ZIMA (Slovakia) – D-beat massacre from Slovakia? Yes! Kruta Zima rules. But of course we hope for better weather at the end of May in Prague’s Modrá Vopice venue. This is legendary primitive (but awesome of course …) disbeat band from Bratislava, so we definitively want to see them at Fear Fest 2018! And we hope that we are not alone in this … https://www.facebook.com/Kruta-Zima-144273932295920/
MÖRKHIMMEL (Czech Republik) – Thrash Metal / Crust. „Tormented and pummeling crust metal from Prague. None more heavy with landscape-leveling chords, and unscrupulously dark themes that churn within howling and gravely vocal tones. MÖRKHIMMEL has the metallic mid-tempo of AMEBIX and GUILLONTINE TERROR or contemporaries SCOLEX, with the skull-crushing machine vibe of PESD, and KILLING JOKE. All the while this LP remains HELLHAMMER-ing old school and DISGUST-ingly punk. MÖRKHIMMEL share members with a slew of bands from BETON and GUIDED CRADLE to HOLLYHOCK.“ (http://www.maximumrocknroll.com/record-of-the-week-morkhimmel-lp/by MRR)
MYTERI (Sweden) – No need for some big introduction for this band. MYTERI is dark d-beat / crust from Sweden in the vein of bands like Tragedy / From Ashes Rise, but with big influences coming out from classic scandinavian hardcore. Their 2nd new album „Ruiner“ is a must. Fear Fest 2018!
PARASIT (Sweden) – Just to name their current and ex-bands of all the members, which are or were in this will be very long list. Let´s keep it for the end. You probably already know, that this band is one of the top from nowadays crust / d-beat scene in Sweden. They have two great albums (first on D-Takt & Raw Punk Records, 2nd one on Cyclone Empire and full 7“EP). Raw aggressive sounds in the vein of Skitsystem, Krigshot with influences coming out from classic old school death metal. Oh, and here are those bands we were talking about – Uncurbed, Asocial, Regurgitate, Sex Dwarf, Assassination, Uncanny, Demonical, Anger Burning, Infanticide, Interment, Crossing Chaos, Diskono, 3 Way Cum, Sauna. Sounds good, right? https://www.facebook.com/parasit666/
SVART UT (Germany) – From the deep shadows of Berlin’s squats raised beast with SVART UT name. Total noise destruction, which is heavily inspired by swedish punk scene. So you can expect set full of covers from bands like Mob 47, Shitlickers, Anti Cimex, Dismachine, Discard or Protes Bengt. Oh .. and this project is with Earth Crust Displacement members. https://svartut.bandcamp.com
URSUT (Sweden) – Well done, well done! For Fear Fest 2018 we have suprise! Band, which we already wanted here to see them live. Malmö d-beat crust finest Ursut! One of the best crust / punk bands nowadays. Their latest album „Köp Dig Lycklig“ kicked many asses. And live sets? Hm, they didn´t have so much live gigs, but if you are lucky and see them somewhere – it is total madness. Ok, here you have band which their members you can saw in bands like Kontrovers, Crutches, Intensity, Sewn Shut or Skitkids. URSUT at Fear Fest 2018! First was Beethoven, then Beatles. Soon after Motorhead there was Discharge. Now is Ursut. https://www.facebook.com/ursut.hardcorepunk/
VISIONS OF WAR (Belgium) – Another solid portion of dirty crust core, which I hope all of you already know. Musically it’s straight forward D-beat such as the likes of Doom, Discard, Mob 47, Corpus Christi, but in the last couple of years metal became an influence, so what to expect, some straight forward stripped down D-beat, nothing more, nothing less.
VOIDFILLER (European disaster!) Another headliner for Fear Fest 2018 is international „all-star“ band VOIDFILLER. This line-up is simply the best – Oskar (Crutches, Ursut atd.), Stiv (Visions Of War), Stef (Visions Of War, Chaka atd.), Adam (Driller Killer, Lautstürmer), Pjär (3 Way Cum, Parasit, ex-Svaveldioxid, Sauna atd.) a Christoffer (Driller Killer, Mob 47, Lautstürmer atd.). Enough to say, right? https://voidfiller.bandcamp.com/
