BRUTAL TRUTH Premiere New Video; Confirm Tour With Nasum & Dropdead

Grindcore subjugators BRUTAL TRUTH today unveil their brand new epilepsy-inducing society-hating politically-charged video for "Malice/Fuck Cancer," the latest in an ongoing bombardment of videos coinciding with their latest LP End Time. This latest action-packed double-header was completed by Tyson Montrucchio who previously also directed BRUTAL TRUTH's videos for "Sugar Daddy," "Semi Automatic Carnation" and "Get a Therapist...Spare The World," in addition to working with Cattle Decapitation, Downspell and others.


So without further ado, just in time for your drunken Leap Year Hump Day festivities, MetalSucks is proud to give you "Malice/Fuck Cancer" AT THIS LOCATION.


This week BRUTAL TRUTH are crossing the southern border of our country to assault Mexico City at Eyescream Metalfest IV, set as one of the main headliners alongside Tankard, Voivod and more.

This very special final Nasum tour was booked in tribute to the band's late vocalist Mieszko Talarczyk, who tragically died in the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. With Nasum bringing BRUTAL TRUTH as well as politi-crust icons Dropdead along as support, there is no doubt that this will be one of the most destructive and pertinent extreme tours of the year.

BRUTAL TRUTH Premiere "Lottery" Video Via Metal Injection.... Everybody Wins!

The devout militia in-house at Metal Injection today premieres the brand new video from New York grindcore mercenaries BRUTAL TRUTH. The epilepsy-inducing new visual assault was filmed for the track "Lottery," the tenth track from the crew's latest LP, End Time.


"Lottery" is the first video from End Time to hit the streets since the album was released in September, and was directed by David Hall of Handshake Inc. Stated Hall of the creation of the video and working with BRUTAL TRUTH on it: "I think Kevin Sharp is a seriously underrated lyricist and therefore wanted to make the actual words of the song a part of the video. If you play the video at half speed you’ll be able to read the words and a get a sense of what is going on thematically. Visually, I wanted to recreate a visual memory of what it’s like to watch a Brutal Truth show…’still not loud enough, still not fast enough’ – a blur of sounds and visions ground through your face, four unique and seriously talented players that form a grind-Voltron; a big noisy beast that spits super-acid in your face and defeats complacency and boredom."


No purchase is necessary to enter this "Lottery" -- check it out RIGHT HERE.


BRUTAL TRUTH also filmed two additional new videos to coincide with End Time -- videos crafted for the tracks "Fuck Cancer" and "Malice" -- once again with Tyson Montrucchio, who previously directed the band's videos for "Sugar Daddy" and "Get A Therapist... Spare the World." Stay tuned for more info as these new waves of band propaganda are disbursed in the coming weeks.

Begin Work On New Material

Reunited seminal grindcore / extreme metal outfit BRUTAL TRUTH have begun writing for a new full-length album. The troupe has crafted six brand new songs so far, each one faster and more brutal than the one before it.

BRUTAL TRUTH's Danny Lilker elaborates: "We have 6 new songs in varying stages of evolution that are shaping up to be some of the most intense shit we've ever written. After 8 years it feels damn good to write some really psychotic grind, and we've jumped right into the deep end of the pool. Stylistically it seems to pick up where Sounds of the Animal Kingdom left off with the main difference being we're also incorporating some of the old school type riffing from Extreme Conditions Demand Extreme Responses but at a much faster tempo. We'll keep you posted as things develop!"

BRUTAL TRUTH drummer Rich Hoak adds: "Help, I just can't stop playing faster and faster and faster and faster!!! My arms are gonna fall off of my body!! Totally psyched for total fucking grind!!!"

BRUTAL TRUTH recently wrapped up a Summer European headlining tour that included a number of festival appearances (Hellfest, Graspop, Trashfest, Obscene Extreme, and more). The band says of the shows: We'd like to thank every last freak that came out to see us at the European shows we did in June and July, it was an awesome tour thanks to you. Special thanks would go to Curby and crew from the Obscene Extreme Festival for welcoming us with grinding enthusiasm! Lookout for more Brutal Truth live shows to be announced soon!!?

BRUTAL TRUTH has recently seen the reissue of their heralded 1997 masterpiece Sounds of the Animal Kingdom. The re-mastered and repackaged version comes complete with the preceding Kill Trend Suicide mini-CD (1996), bonus video footage in the form of the band's 'Dead Smart' video, extensive and exhaustive liner notes from the band, and a forward from Choosing Death author Albert Mudrian.

Drummer Rich Hoak comments on the bands reunion; "The original impetus for the reformation of BRUTAL TRUTH was a quick recording session of an EYEHATEGOD cover song ('Sister F*cker') for a compilation to benefit our friends in the band, who had lost all of their musical equipment in the Hurricane Katrina disaster. As we were grinding and smoking, we considered the current state of the planet and it became obvious to us that the world needs BRUTAL TRUTH now more than ever!" Hoak continues, "We are totally psyched to be back together and grinding to the extreme! We're looking forward to seeing our old fans again, meeting new fans and, of course, busting out the most extreme grind possible!?

BRUTAL TRUTH bassist Dan Lilker adds; "After 8 years of not playing psychotically fast grind music, it feels damn good to be doing it again. Look out cause we're about twice as fast now."
