They will be accompanied by 90s rapcore act Dog Eat Dog and Terror, the world's most pissed off hardcore band. They will also be supported by Poland's Schizma, who returned this year with Upadek and proved that Polish hardcore is still breathing full force, and the concert line-up will be closed by Canadians from Get the Shot.
In the 90s, it was impossible to miss Biohazard. You could listen to rap, metal, hardcore punk or just different kinds of rock, but they always jumped out of the fridge. They had masterful form and were on top of their game. What's more, a line-up from a city that is the cultural capital of the world doesn't need to hide behind its guard, just to avoid getting peeled off by younger players. Billy Graziadei and Evan Seinfeld continue to walk the stages of this world with their heads held high and may not record news very often, but during their concerts, they take a beating from virtually every individual they meet. This is aggression, anger and, above all, the ability to write evergreens, because even the most bile-fermented numbers of the line-up have that dance groove.
Formed in New Jersey in 1990, Dog Eat Dog was one of the earliest bands to fuse hardcore punk and rap music, contributing significantly to shaping the landscape of heavy music of the following decades. Following the release of their debut album All Boro Kings in 1994, the group became a fixture on MTV; they were particularly popular in Europe, where they toured with Biohazard. A career explosion was followed by a change in sound, with their follow-up album Play Games featuring funk and ska-influenced sounds and collaborations with the likes of Ronnie James Dio and RZA. Despite the staff turnover, Dog Eat Dog have remained active, releasing two more studio albums. Their most recent release is the 2017 EP Brand New Breed.
Los Angeles-based band Terror are one of the most influential groups in contemporary beatdown hardcore, consistently remaining at the forefront of the genre since their formation in 2002. Their debut album One with the Underdogs sold over 40,000 copies; since then they have released seven more albums, the most recent of which is 2022's Pain into Power. Next in the line-up is Schizma - one of the oldest and most recognisable, both nationally and internationally, Polish hardcore bands. Schizma's output includes more than ten releases and - above all - nearly a thousand concerts across Poland and a dozen countries. Despite the passing years, they still play both small, local gigs and big festivals, reaching everywhere the fire of the independent scene burns or smoulders. The band has shared the stage with such acclaimed line-ups as Length of Time, l'Espirit Du Clan, Strife, Madball, Integrity, Terror as well as Vader, Kreator, Cannibal Corpse, Anthrax and DRI. Their latest release is the LP Fall from 2023.
The line-up closes with Get the Shot. This metalcore band formed in Quebec City in 2009, born from the ashes of local bands such as Bridge Too Far and Not 4 Pigs. Their influences include the early work of American Nightmare, Suicidal Tendencies and All Out War. Get the Shot's most recent release is 2022's Merciless Destruction.
