Prepare to be blown away as Gutalax, the Czech grindcore sensation, joins the Rockstadt Extreme Fest lineup, taking place near Râșnov Fortress in Transylvania from 2-6 August 2023.
Hailing from Křemže, Czech Republic, Gutalax was formed in 2009 and features Petr “Průduch” Pour on guitar, Martin “Maty” Matoušek on vocals, Lukáš “Pouřík” Pour on drums, and Pavel “Kebab” Troup on bass. The band is known for their energetic live performances, wearing distinctive white protective clothing and throwing… amusing props into the crowd, such as toilet paper, toilet brushes, and inflatable dolls.
Gutalax’s journey began in 2009 with the release of their seven-track demo, “Telecockies,” which quickly gained underground popularity and led to a 2010 split release with Italian band Cannibe. After a series of concerts mainly as supporting acts, Gutalax welcomed second guitarist Kojas to the lineup in August 2010. The band continued to perform both in the Czech Republic and throughout Europe, earning a reputation for their entertaining live shows.
In 2013, Gutalax embarked on a 14-day tour of Mexico, and later that year, they collaborated with Spanish band Haemorrhage on a 7″ split vinyl. Work on their second full-length album, “Shit Happens!,” began in 2014, with the record being released in 2015 under the German label Rotten Roll Rex. Their third album, “The Shitpendables,” was released in 2021, also on Rotten Roll Rex. The Rockstadt Extreme Festival team is thrilled to have Gutalax as part of their 2024 lineup, as it offers grindcore fans an incredible opportunity to see these masters of mayhem live in action. Don’t miss your chance to experience the chaos and hilarity that is Gutalax at Rockstadt Extreme Fest 2024, near the historic Râșnov Fortress in Transylvania.
