BRUTAL TRUTH

Evolution Through Revolution

(Relapse)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 9.5

That clinging, clanging, headache of a racket could only mean one thing: the band tied for grindcore greatness only with underground speedsters Assuck is back. New York’s Brutal Truth, reunited after what feels like a lifetime to fans of the band’s high-strung/laid-back contradictions in noise and music, have returned with one hell of a disc: from the grinding noise of ‘War Is Good’ and ‘Powder Burn’ to the more stretched-out, grooving sounds of ‘Fist In Mouth’ (sort of a ‘Jemenez Cricket’ Part 2’) and ‘Get A Therapist Save The World’, the band is on their game. There’s a one-second grinder (‘Branded’), and a three-minute “epic” doomster in ‘Detached’. ‘Semi-Automatic Carnation’ is an experimentally noisy instrumental and there’s even a Minutemen cover in ‘Bob Dylan Wrote Propaganda Songs’. ‘Afterworld’ is a highlight, moving from a quick grind tune to slow stoner sludge. ‘Grind Fidelity’, which closes the disc, shows the band taking their time and crafting a longer number which alternately blasts death metal, grooves slow and brings the noise. The disc is firmly rooted in the more crusted-up hardcore influence that the band had later in their career, as opposed to the gonzo approach to death metal they had in their early era. The goofy album title (c’mon, you could have done better than that) and simplistic lyrics are the only things I don’t like about this excellent disc, which features the debut of guitarist Erik Burke (Nuclear Assault, Kalibas, Sulaco), who helps the band continue progressing as if they never missed a beat. Which, on this disc, they don’t.
