Mercyful Fate confirmed for Brutal Assault 25
Come, come to the Sabbath! It is a big year for heavy metal music as the legendary Mercyful Fate have risen from their long, encoffinated slumber and are going on a very exclusive European tour in the Summer. From June to August, the Danish quintet led by the charismatic King Diamond will be performing at various festivals and venues such as Hellfest, Copenhell, Rock The Night and Wacken Open Air. But there is one festival missing, isn’t it? That’s right, you guessed it right! Currently celebrating it’s 25th Anniversary, it seemed more than appropriate that Brutal Assault would get a big surprise for its attendees and it sure did. The biggest and best underground metal festival in Czech Republic will receive Mercyful Fate with open arms for “A Dangerous Meeting” like no other. This latest confirmation also takes the lineup to 50% completion, with bands such as Asphyx, Cattle Decapitation, Devin Townsend, Imperial Triumphant, Katatonia, Obituary, Paradise Lost, Razor, Sigh, Suffocation, Uada, Vader, Venom and many more already confirmed as well. Stay tuned for further announcements, things will only getting hotter from here.
