BRUTTA (Athemon, Ex-Haken) Posts Teaser For Debut Album Out June 2022!
Brutta is a solid, heavy-hitting band straight out of São Paulo, Brazil, and the UK. Although they are relatively new, the trio of Adriano Ribeiro (Athemon) (guitars, vocals), Tom MacLean (Athemon, ex-Haken) (bass), and Gledson Gonçalves (drums) have many years of experience working together under their belts and leave nothing to be desired in both their recorded material and live performance. To get fans excited about their debut self-titled album that will be coming out next month, they have just released a teaser video. The band hints at what listeners can expect in their initial release:
“The album is a definitive punch in your face… or maybe we could say a hammer in your forehead! A mixture of open evil chords with blast beats finding a defined yet tormenting growling vocal. The song themes are very precise and the lyrics bring a subjective aspect of humans' mental conflicts from a darker angle. It’s right there, aggression, darkness, heaviness, a critical sound mass with a huge personality, not to mention its fine production.”
Throughout the album, fans will be greeted by tense, obscure, and wicked music; death metal blast beats, and black metal riffs. Lyrical themes are at times gruesome like the serial killer tale in “Mortem”, and others question religion like “Bastardo” and “Cristus”. The dark themes compliment the creative and original music well, proving that these seasoned musicians are highly talented and have a solid connection.
Metal fans looking for a definitive punch in the face will enjoy the adrenaline surge that Brutta provides, they are recommended for fans of Vltimas, Mayhem, and Bloodbath.
