In their first years they played all over Belgium, evolving as a energetic live act. Drummer vocalist Stefanie mixes black-metal blast beats with math-rock flourishes whilst belting the most impassioned vocals, shifting from deceptively melodic to out-right larynx-punishing in the blink of an eye. Guitarist Stijn Vanhoegaerden takes ethereal post-rock tones to hardcore punk levels of speed and energy aside Peter Mulders powerful sub-frequency shift. Just to say they have a lot of fun while making the music they love.
In April 2016 Brutus decamped to Vancouver (CA) to record BURST, their debut album. Brutus manage to straddle the significant divide between Slayer and Savages, The Smiths and Slowdive, Dillinger Escape Plan and Ryan Adams - and all with just three members expertly colluding to make a sound as monolithic as it is emotive.
BURST was released by Hassle Records in UK and Europe, and by Sargent House for USA and World. In 2017 they toured all over Europe. Right now they are ready for more.
Trouble comes in threes, so does Brutus.
