Band Of The Week: Brutus

A couple days ago while I was reading one of the many music news sites that I frequently visit, I saw a post about a band that a friend had mentioned before. To this point I had never heard anything by this band so I figured why not give it a shot. What I then heard absolutely floored me. I immediately played the song again and again. From there I was sold. So I did what I always do and went back through the bands catalog and at that point knew, this was going to be the band of the week.

 
I’d like to introduce you to the band Brutus. Hailing from Belgium, this three piece band is well on their way to leaving their mark. Brutus isn’t just any run of the mill “heavy” band they, have taken an approach that feels organic and bursting at the seams. Taking bits of post hardcore, rock, punk and black metal, Brutus is delivering a melodic blast of fury. Their debut album BURST is one hell of an introduction to the band. Their upcoming album NEST (out March 29 via Sargent House) is shaping up to be one of 2019’s most exciting and acclaimed albums of the year. The three songs released so far “War,” “Cemetary,” and “Django” are utterly astounding. The progress Brutus has made from their debut till now is perfect and what is about to be unleashed is something that will keep this band in constant rotation.

If you are not familiar with Helms Alee, you really should be. For more than a decade, with five studio albums, and countless EP’s, Helms Alee has quietly been carving their own path and are busting at the seams waiting to explode. On April 26th, Helms Alee will unleash their fifth studio album, Noctiluca via Sargent House. This three piece band featuring drummer Hozoji Matheson-Margullis, bassist Dana James and guitarist Ben Verellen are not to be reckoned with.┬áNoctiluca continues the bands tradition of sludgy riffs, lush instrumentals, and soaring melodies. The first single released, also the albums opener, “Interachnid” is one hell of a way to kick things off and get you engrossed in what’s to come on this new journey of an album. Helms Alee has always been the type of band that gives it their all on each release. They have a sort of psychedelic sense to their savage being allthe while, they are able to cut away to parts that really take you places. This new Helms Alee album is anticipated for sure!
