Brutal Blues are a band from Norway that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of grind and noisecore and this is a review of their 2018 album "BB" which was released by Give Praise Records.
A very fast noisecore sound starts off the album along with a great amount of blast beats while the vocals are a mixture of high pitched screams and growls along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and melodies can also be heard in some of the riffing.
Psychedelic elements, video game music and harsh noises sounds can also be heard at times while the songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music bringing in an experimental and improv feeling and some of the tracks are very short in length as the album progresses.
On this recording Brutal Blues gets more experimental and avant garde while still being mostly rooted in grind and noisecore, the production sounds very professional while the vocals do not really bring out any lyrics.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Brutal Blues and if you are a fan of grind and noisecore, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "1" "4" "7" and "10". 8 out of 10.
