GOD’S AMERICA have power violence/grind at their fingertips!!!

Power violence lives and not that it doesn’t! This band did shatter the pv/grind scene with their album titled „Merge With The Infinite Now“ that was released at Deep Six / Regurgitated Semen Records last year. Short, a minute-long blasts full of stops and changes of tempo. Sludge passages alternating with a few seconds long grind passages.

Swedish grind / hardcore blast called THE ARSON PROJECT at OEF after 10 years!!!

The grind core blast of THE ARSON PROJECT from Malmö, Sweden who do not loathe other styles like hardcore or punk will perform again on the stage of the Obscene Extreme Festival after long ten years. What has changed with this squad since? It could be summarized in a single sentence – basically nothing revolutionary has happened.

THE MASKED DEMONS OF AMERICAN CROSSOVER!!! GHOUL!!!

We have a real highlight for you!!! The American masked quartet GHOUL presenting crossover between thrash and death metal with an incredible portion of musical dexterity. Gentlemen named Digestor, Fermentor, Cremator and Dissector really know how to deliver a show and we had no doubts to bring them to this year OEF after seeing some of their totally crazy and intensive shows in the USA. GHOUL started in 2001 and made five full-length albums so far which got great reviews and responses all around the world. 

SYMPHONIES OF NECRO GORE MASSACRE!!! DEATHTOPIA!!!

The music in the best tradition of Gore Metal, strongly influenced by genre classics like Carcass or Exhumed. Oh yes, it's DEATHTOPIA, a band with an international line-up, established by the guitarist and singer Mune in 2010 in Osaka, Japan. Band's first three-piece line-up recorded two full-length albums and played several tours around Asia and Europe.

PIONEERS OF SPANISH GRINDCORE!!! EL KASO URKIJO!!!

They were one of the first, actually the first band in Spain who released grindcore on vinyl. Extreme music survivors know for sure that it's the grindcore combo EL KASO URKIJO. Established in 1987 as EL KASO at that time to be renamed the very next year to their final name EL KASO URKIJO after the murders of Spanish marquis and marquess named Urkijo.

MEXICAN AMERICAN ROTTEN COMMANDO!!! ROTTENNESS!!!

Intensive, uncompromising death/grind. This kind of music will be delivered for the second time at OEF by Mexican American band called ROTTENNESS. A very active band with its roots in Cancún, Mexico  where an underground maniac named Jajleel founded the band as early as in 1994.

AGE OF WOE, hardcore soaked with metal and sludge!!!

This band has come flying as a glowing comet on the metal or rather hardcore scene. Their debut album titled „Inhumaform“ was one of the best albums of 2013. Former or current members of various crust, metal, hardcore squads from Sweden cannot produce bad music. Quite a trivial sentence, but 100% true.

THE QUEEN OF THRASH MAYHEM!!! THE HEADLINER OF THE OEF SPEED MANIA FEST 2017!!!

We believe there is no need to introduce this band much. The headliner of the Wednesday OEF SPEED MANIA FEST 2017 is here. Fronted by the queen of thrash metal, Sabina Classen. Yes, the German thrashers HOLY MOSES!!! 

Thank you for perpetual support in 2016 and enjoy in full swing 2017!!!

See you in 186 days 17 hours 56 minutes and 15 seconds!!! OEF crew

INFEST – the founding stone of hardcore history!!!

The whole generations of hardcorer’s dream about this and I suppose also the fans of other styles who know what that name means. INFEST at Obscene Extreme Festival 2017! The pioneers and founders of the style called „power violence“. A style that has inspired hundreds and maybe thousands of other bands that have been destroying the musical boundaries since two decades.

Torturing devices in wrong hands can do a proper mess! BRODEQUIN, the legend of megabrutal death metal, is going to return at the boards of OEF after 13 years!!!

Once a longtime drummer Jon announced his departure lately being substituted by a young Dutch Jan Lugtenburg the world of brutality has come back to life hoping to see this massacre in full strength. Some other line-up changes have been done behind the strings. Jamie`s brother Mike has taken a rest and his place is being warmed up by a talented guitar player from EMBODIED, Torment Joaquin Chavez.

SWEDISH GORE SODOMY!!! RAZORRAPE!!!

RAZORRAPE was estabilished as a one-man project by Martin Schönherr, ex-drummer of the bands like Deranged, Splattered Mermaids or Virgin Sin, in 2004. RAZORAPE is quite unusually a gore/grind band hailing from the European cradle of traditional death metal known as Sweden. The guys added the line-up in 2006 putting out several recordings in different formats together with the well-known Rotten Roll Rex label.

SOLDIERS OF SLOVAKIAN GRINDCORE!!! EMBOLISM!!!

Today we introduce to you one of the top grind acts from our neighbours from Slovakia, EMBOLISM. The band around the Kotrik´s brothers was established in 1997 and soon after their start they released a demo that greatly describes their „Grind´n´Roll“ sound. Other recordings as splits or two full-length albums followed.

GRINDING THE CORE FROM NECROACROPOLIS!!! SLAVEBREED!!!

In this case the speed really prevails. Absolute grind core with a small touch of crust and hardcore, this is SLAVEBREED, a quintet from Athens, Greece. They have been grinding their core for more than 10 years and certainly they are one of the leaders of the European grind core scene.

BRUTALISMO:SADISMO:CHILESMO!!! SADISM!!!

Latin-American cult band SADISM at OEF 2017!!! The band was established as early as in 1988 and together with their buddies from Pentagram Chile they are the pioneers of extreme metal in Chile. Old school death metal is what these guys swear on and the list of their recordings indicates how very active they still are. 

NEW ROYAL GRIND BLOOD!!! BLACK SKIES BURN!!!

Despite the fact they have existed for 10 years they are still quite new and unknown. BLACK SKIES BURN from Oxfordshire, England have taken a fancy to a brutal noise in a grind death style with DIY ethics. They have managed to support some big names such as Sepultura or Extreme Noise Terror amongst others and to release several DIY recordings.

Dark crust/d-beat of MYTERI from Sweden to pogo the Battlefield away!!!

If you currently search for bands to sound similar to Tragedy or From Ashes Rise but without being awkward, whining neo-crust copies at the same time, we just have for you a delicacy from Sweden called MYTERI!

Swedish pack of wolves - WOLFBRIGADE!!!

Wow! They are back again! Our „again“ does not definitely mean some annoyed moaning but the opposite. We look forward to this band and you do for sure together with us. WOLFBRIGADE. The founding stone of the world hardcore/punk scene.

RETURNING BULLDOZER FROM THE UPPER SILESIAN BASIN!!! PSYCHONEUROSIS!!!

Here we have another comeback in the grindcore family. The Polish band PSYCHONEUROSIS that had a very active period between 1991 and 2001 when they played many shows and did even more recordings disbanded due to their professional responsibilities.

SPEAK ENGLISH OR DIE IN FULL BLOW!!! STORMTROOPERS OF BEER!!!

An absolute BLAST!!! All of us know of course the metal legend, Danny Lilker, and all his bands and projects. He has graced Trutnov Battlefield with his presence a few times but this year it will for certain be very much special.
