The album art is also striking with its many pictures of worldly chaos and icons. You can get an idea from just looking at the cover as to what this will be like.
I like it when metal bands actually try hard to make interesting artwork for their albums and not just some blood soaked body or charcoal pastel landscapes with unreadable bands names to invoke a certain type of mood. Something is coming.. The whole band lets loose in an assault of blast beats and extremely fast riffing as the low growling now fiercely attacks your eardrums.
Ignorance and prejudice, raping people's minds, molded by environment, hatred of all kinds, the ignorant domain, never knowing freedom, wear it like a chain. When the album was released in it had only been five years since the release of Napalm Death 's Scum , best known for bringing grindcore's extreme "noise" upon the world. Napalm Death had already taken elements of the most dissonant and chaotic forms of hardcore punk to the limit, creating a sound loved to be hated by outsiders.
At the same time, death metal was developing parallel to grindcore as both genres grew with more practitioners determined to further expand the sounds. Brutal Truth was not only one of the first American grindcore bands, but it was also one of the first, if not the very first, to mix both genres almost equally, thus creating what is known as deathgrind. Deathgrind is indeed the best way to describe the sound. The grindcore assaults occur frequently, but usually between slower passages akin to death metal.
This strategy works as it makes the album more varied in sound and a bit more accessible as a result. The instruments continuously move back and forward between the groovy death metal riffage and heart attack worthy grindcore, in which the guitar and bass both refuse to stay on a single chord for more than a second.
The bassist, Dan Lilker, is especially talented and already a music veteran. He previously played for Anthrax kicked out after the first album , Nuclear Assault , and Stormtroopers of Death.
All the statements you have made. Have no real validity. Stench Of Profit Motivation, greed and pride, you don't care how many die.
Lost in ill neglect In the Shadow of Misconception, misguide opinions, fatal endings Destroy all happiness from the start, thoughtless in cold visions. The values of humanity cave in. Denial Of Existence Spreading. Across out land. Infecting breeding grounds. Never to leave our hated soil. Hope is gone. Right wing oppression. Sentence us far beyond. Submit - your fooled existence must now cease. Torment - ignorant fools deny it's presence. Eternal - condemned to back pages of mankind.
Nevermore - no one cares who lives or dies. Denial of existence. From within destroy and ruin, guaranteed to seal our doom The truth we choose forever face, annihilate the human race.
Time I see through. The gray facade. Solemn expression. Time goes on. Ageless questions. Pointless passing thoughts. Backwards forwards. Meaningless answers. Insight on model values. Problem faced? On scriptless parts. The confrontation. Time, time goes on. I see through. This is easily one of the best tracks here. Everything is in tip-top shape for of brilliance. The music is catchy, super-fast, and real fucking angry. Every single day just like the one before. Don't you need to express the way you feel?
Wake your sleeping brain, there's so much more. I love these vocals… Listen right at when the song comes to its climax. Pure, beautiful, extreme anguish. I am in love with this song, and you will be too. Monetary Gain starts off as another plodder, with a good metal riff.
The double-bass helps things move along. Like most songs on this album, the best parts of this one are the fast parts. Wilt begins with a perfect sample. Unfortunately, later the fast riff is pretty generic and gets lost in the shuffle, making this one of the more forgettable songs of the album.
Blockhead is 7 seconds long, and even less decipherable than Collateral Damage. Just when you thought the album was fading into boredom, Anti-Homophobe comes along and grabs you by the ear with a twisted, agonized yelp and a nice grindy guitar riff. The chorus sounds great, and the lyrics make it even better.
Unjust Compromise finishes off the album in epic fashion, utilizing all of the skills and techniques which make this band great.
It slows down after two minutes, and the rest of the song is a kind of deconstruction, from a regular beat and chords into an extended passage of weird distorted notes, and those power tool sound effects again… all set to some very cool drumming, which slows to a crawl, then hops around, while the music continues to devolve.
Good ending. Believe me, I used to think Grind was pure noisy incompetence and horridness. Man, was I wrong! Thank you, Brutal Truth, for showing me the light. It was the 90s and Dan Lilker was all of a sudden so obsessed with grind and more extreme forms of metal that he had to go and leave a perfectly good band Nuclear Assault to form this project. You're faceless. Beyond crimes - you've taken on a new level. More spite Gutting victims, hollow shells, empty lives.
Lifeless lives. Bleed the heart of new found pain. Conceal the loss, nil to gain. The magnitude of bitter loss. Broken in two. Subtle vain attempts. Falling your demise. Hated worth content with loss. Utopia denied. You'll never clutch a shred of peace. Inside your clouded mind. Forgotten left behind. Far blocked and blind. Inner self is mere shadows. Forgotten is yourself. You'll never clutch a shed of peace.
Why did you do this? Where is your head at? You fucking blockhead! Ignorant in thought. Distorts your twisted values. Break your ancient chains. And part with the ways of the past. You don't have the right. To force you own opinion.
