Brute are a band from Slovakia that plays a brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Henchmen" which was released by Slovak Metal Army.
Dark sounding keyboards and choir vocals start off the album before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while the vocals are mostly death metal growls.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while high pitched screams can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill as well as having their melodic moments and as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard on a few tracks.
Brute plays a style of death metal that is very brutal and also very heavily influenced by the North America version of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover corruption and death themes.
In my opinion Brute are a very great sounding brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Last Feelings" "Walls Of Purple Hue" and "The Downheartedness". 8 out of 10.
