Editorial Reviews

For some bands it's the place of origin that determines their music, and Brutality is certainly among them. The group hails from Tampa, Florida - the capitol of American death metal. Unfortunately, being overshadowed by death giants like Cannibal Corpse,

Have you ever wondered what the end of the world would be like? Well, just crank this album on and prepare to be destroyed or better yet, crushed. This album is a classic and personal favorite of mine. It holds an extremely important place in my list of greatest death metal albums of all time. This is the album that made me a fan of this band and to tell you the honest truth, I have never been the same after hearing it nor do I ever regret buying it. It's just one of those albums that will make you apprecriate death metal in one form or another. So, the best way I could discribe this album is extravagently intense, catastrophic, cataclysmic, apocalyptic, thunderous, devastating, annihilating, scary, technical yet totally brutal death metal at its ultimate best. The vocals are pretty scary, the bass is thunderous, the guitars are melodic yet intense and the drums sound almost like an earthquake. There is also 2 incredable instrimentals. The first is called Sympathy which can be discribed as something from a Conan or a Barbarian movie because it's comprised of classical music. The second one is called Spirit World which could be looked upon as sort of new age song because it really sounds like a peaceful journey through the spiritual realm of eternity. Some of my favorite songs here are These Walls Shell Be Your Grave, Ceremonial Unearthing, Crushed, Cries Of The Forsaken, Cryptorium and Spawned Illusion which is my most favorite. So, with everything I've said, buy this album and be prepared for annihilation. You've been warned.

Amongst the multiple bands to emerge out of the death metal scene arising from the area, Brutality have managed to be one of the most unsung and overlooked. This is a shame, as their 1993 debut full-length, "Screams of Anguish", is a masterpiece in its league.

First off, while this is considered a technical death metal album, it's not what you would expect from Atheist, later Death and their ilk. In this case, Brutality manage to utilize more death metal oriented song structures that are highly complex and consist of multiple moods, blending in perfectly to represent the strong songwriters they are. Nearly every song manages to capture the same atmosphere, but it's not one of those "every song sounds the same and the whole album blends in and gets boring". Absolutely not, because each song represents its own throughout their distinguishable guitar tone and phenomenal musicianship. The two interludes manage to give it some space to breathe, but in no way are they filler. In fact "Sympathy" is a beautifully melancholic classical style piece that bridges the gap perfectly, as well as the approach on "Spirit World".

The Metal Mind limited reissue not only has the album remastered on a gold disc, but we get the inclusion of the bonus track "Sadistic", which originally appeared on the Sadistic 7" EP released a year before. Do what it takes to get your hands on this, as this is a milestone in death metal.

A solid old school classic. Highly recommended for fans of bands such as Death, Morbid Angel, Obituary, and Deicide. I doubt you could find this album many other places for the same price, I'm sure it's quite a rare release in physical CD/tape/Vinyl format.

Whack this slab in your player and discover real Death metal, not this suedo garbage that exists today. These guys were around when all the classic Death Metal bands were coming up with basically a top class album every week between the lot of them. Those days are sadly long gone, but at least we've got their releases to bring us back there, even if its just in your mind.
Mean nasty tremelo picked riffs, backed up by more than adequate drumming, hammered by double vocals, not to mention a good bass sound with thoughtful licks and runs. This is another title that I can personally thank Amazon for allowing me to obtain it, being that no record store would ever stock something so overlooked. There was only one track that didn't seem to fit to me, something with keyboards and dreamy soundscape. Everything else lives up to the name BRUTALITY, you can't say that they falsely advertise. Thanks lads.
