Between Slayer and Savages Brutus rage like a maelstrom. They are a meteor shower of sound. This trio from Leuven, Belgium create expansive, stratospheric punk not quite like any other band around. With post-rock construction, black metal dynamics, hardcore energy, prog and math-rock flourishes and pure
pop melodies all detectable on their debut album Burst,Brutus manage to straddle the significant divide between Slayer and Savages, The Smiths and Slowdive, Dillinger Escape Plan and Deus – and all with just three members expertly colluding to make a sound as monolithic as it is emotive.
