Belgian trio BRUTUS share video for “Horde II” from breakthrough debut album Burst

Belgian trio Brutus release today the official video for “Horde II”, from their breakthrough full length debut Burst. Watch & share via YouTube HERE.

Brutus‘ debut album Burst is available to hear & share via Soundcloud HERE. The band continues to tour rigorously throughout the EU and UK. Please see current dates below.
Sargent House recently signed Brutus to its label and management roster, releasing the band’s debut in North America and the rest of the world in partnership with Hassle Records, the band’s European label. “My reaction was immediate, the second I heard the first track I was hooked and knew I wanted to be part of this band’s team,” says Cathy Pellow, who also manages such artists as Chelsea Wolfe, Deafheaven, Russian Circles to name just a few.

Hailing from Leuven, Belgium, Brutus create a pummeling, meteor-shower of sound. Vocalist/drummer Stefanie Mannaerts mixes black-metal blast beats with math-rock flourishes whilst belting out the most impassioned vocals that shift from deceptively melodic to outright larynx-punishing in the blink of an eye. Meanwhile, guitarist Stijn Vanhoegaerden takes ethereal post-rock tones to hardcore punk levels of speed and energy alongside Peter Mulders’ powerful sub-frequency shift. The three conspire to make a sound as monolithic and frantic as it is emotive.
Having gigged rigorously across Belgium, in April 2016 Brutus decamped to Vancouver, BC to record Burst. “We sent an email to Jesse Gander (Japandroids, White Lung), his reply with sushi emoji’s was an instant ticket,” Stefanie explains. “The time in Canada, living together and working in the studio was refreshing, inspiring, healing and confronting at the same time.” Burst is the perfect title for this debut album, then. “It’s the perfect title for me,” Stefanie adds. “It’s a ball of emotions, ready to burst with frustration and anger. But also with tons of energy, love… everything at once.” Trouble comes in threes… and so does Brutus.
Burst was released digitally worldwide on May 12th, 2017 and physically on June 30th, 2017 via Sargent House. Orders are available for LP/CD via HelloMerch and download via iTunes.
