its difficult to not be engulfed and completely enraptured by the EMOTIONAL CATHARSIS that is the sound of BELGIAN POST HARDCORE outfit BRUTUS. their music is just UNRELENTING and has a tendency to up the INTENSITY to higher and higher levels of sonic claustrophobia.
makes total sense that members of this band were in a REFUSED tribute band as that legendary band likewise was renowned for the ability to annihilate their audience with their FEROCIOUS performances. in BRUTUS the PASSION with which drummer/singer STEPHANIE MANNAERTS emotes her vocals is quite POWERFUL and is a driving force that further augments the potency of their music. it is quite an achievement and something definitely worth checking out.
