Brutus is a power trio forged in Leuven (BE) early 2014. Brutus sparked, ignited and took off instantaneous. The sparks channeled into highly energetic, but always catchy tunes. From dissonant noise rock, to brutal metal structures to almost fragile guitar sounds, Brutus covers and masters a vast array of different styles. All these influences are seamlessly blended into their own distinct sound: freaky guitar tones and pounding bass lines that are kept in check by the tightest singing female drummer we have ever encountered. Brutus sounds colossal, Brutus sounds brutal.
Brutus released a collection of three 7” inch records in the first months of 2015. The triptych kicked off by Major / Horde in Januari 2015, in a run of 333 copies housed in custom-made sleeves. The second vinyl, Horde II / Dancing on the face of a Panther has been released in April with a special Brutus Tattoo Store Day. And the final vinyl Fliflu / Bye Julia was released in July 2015.
The band finished recording their debut-full-length Burst in Vancouver, Canada with producer / kindred spirit Jesse Gander. This made them popular in there home country and led to sold-out club shows in 2017.
