How long has this been in the pipeline?!? Brutai finally have a full album out! We’ve been chatting about these guys since 2013, so it’s great to see they’ve left the EPs behind and gone long play.

Billed as a “10 track opus of progressive, melodic, and heavy soundscapes”, I’m certainly excited to have a listen.  If you just can’t wait to get your mitts on a copy (it’s on Spotify, I just checked), check out the video and let us know what you think in the comments. Watch this space for a review.



UK hardcore punk legends Discharge are set to release their new album ‘End Of Days’ on April 29th via Nuclear Blast. Listen to JJ and Bones of the band discussing how the tracks off the new album came about.

The new track, Hatebomb, is

“2 minutes and 8 seconds of anger. Play it loud.”

In the band’s own words.
