Czech Death Fest is back!. They awoke from their slumber and today, they begin the information service pertaining to the already ninth installment of the MetalGate Czech Death Fest, which be held on June 15-17, 2017 on the usual crimescene of Autocamp Brodský in Červený Kostelec.
MetalGate Czech Death Fest OpenAir is a twin-day summer metal festival, which takes place in Autocamp Brodský in the city of Červený Kostelec (Czech Republic). Dramaturgy-wise, the festival combines on one hand a cross-selection of metal styles and subgenres, which has been the hallmark of MetalGate OpenAir, and on the other hand a closer focus on death metal and grindcore, which formed the cornerstone of Czech Death Fest.
The First line up have been confirmed recently, and lets look at them below.
This year (2016), MGCDF hosted the porn-grind from Mexico, Next year (2017) They will bring you the Latin America thrash originated from Chile, NUCLEAR, who was established in 2003 and thus far released five studio albums, two live albums, one live DVD, and played hundreds of live shows around the globe, including Brutal Assault in 2015. MGCDF will host them for the first time, and for that, MGCDF says 'mucho gusto'.
Grind once again, as well as a rerun, for INGROWING, who are grinding since 1995, and also already played on MGCDF. The band history is rich with notable milestones, such as a tour across Southeast Asia, repeated appearances on the acclaimed the Maryland Death Fest, or twice to supporting the iconic Napalm Death, whereby this second year’s show also heralded the return of INGROWING onto the stage after a two-year long break. And since they are back, it would be a shame, if they missed MGCDF. So, be there to give them a helluva welcome!
This gore grind poop-squad needs no elaborate introduction, as you surely at least heard about it. After all, it is not their first visit to MGCDF. GUTALAX is rampaging across Czech and world stages since 2009 and during that time, they have been all over the place, including Mexico, or the big European festivals, such as Summer Breeze and With Full Force. In short, this shitstorm is one you will enjoy :-)
While on the subject of electro grind, MGCDF presents another act in this vein, this time from abroad, i.e. Portugal, named GRUNT, who was established in 2010 and released its two studio albums under the Czech label Bizarre Leprous. Although the history of GRUNT is relatively short, the band gained solid reputation at the forefront of this sub-genre, as well as played live alongside its icons, e.g. Bolt Thrower, Benediction, Brutal Truth, or Cock and Ball Torture. Now, they head to our festival and we hope you will be there to meet them.
One of the icons of the Czech grindcore scene, and was established in 1999.
Originally as a side project of musicians from Alienation Mental, Intervalle Bizarre or Oxyrbl, but gradually emerging as a full-fledged band. Since its inception, its members shared interest in the early cult horror films of Peter Jackson and in the Underground techno music, which the band incorporated into its music, thus creating its most likely primary signature. In 2005, Ahumado Granujo split up, but came back in 2011, eventually reforming into the very original line-up. Thus, you should not miss this sick disco on MGCDF 2017!
