Full Terror Assault Open Air has revealed its full 2019 lineup, which includes Soulfly, Vio-Lence, Kataklysm, Grave, M.O.D., Exhorder, and many more. The self-proclaimed “first true European-style open air festival for extreme music fans in the U.S.” takes place September 4th through the 7th at the Hogrock Campground in Cave In Rock, Illinois.
The first two days of the fest will feature pre-parties and various activities such as the “Morbid Metal Market” while the final two days (Sept 6th-7th) will feature sets from the vast lineup of extreme metal bands. The festival promises metal fans a scenic escape within the Shawnee National Forest, with over 100 acres of wooded campground land, scenic lakes, and a beach.
“We’re really excited to finally get back on the road after four years,” said Billy Milano of crossover thrash act M.O.D., who will be playing a set comprised of half M.O.D. (Method of Destruction) and half S.O.D. (Stormtroopers of Death) songs. “Going out and celebrating 30 years of M.O.D. and 30 years of S.O.D. at the Full Terror Assault Open Air Festival is going to be a fitting tribute to my 92-year-old mother who I lost to cancer in September, who always encouraged me and made me fight on. I’m doing Full Terror Assault for the fans and for my mother and father. M.O.D. is going to bring the f*cking pain.”
The full lineup also includes Crisix (making their debut USA performance), Skeletal Remains, Jungle Rot, Cliteater, Ringworm, Krisiun, Genocide Pact, Dehumanized, Morbid Saint, Wrath, Indestructible Noise Command, Cast The Stone, Hatchet, Waco Jesus, Pains, Byzantine, Wrvm, Elbow Deep, Rhythm of Fear, Poolside at the Flamingo, Sexual Atrocities, Toxic Ruin, A Hill to Die Upon, Ground, Drag them Down, Confused, Invidiosus, Embludgeonment, Smash Potater, Bleed the Victim, Woundvac, Meet the Mailman, Summoner’s Circle, Minimum Wage Assassins, Cheese Grater Masturbation, Crater, Hammerhedd, Buzzzar, Viken, Eulogy in Blood, and more.
