Drummer Rich Hoak of the reunited seminal grindcore/extreme metal outfit BRUTAL TRUTH has issued the following update:
"BRUTAL TRUTH has been in writing mode for the past few rehearsals: we've got about 10 new songs together so far. The new songs are the most brutal bizarre grinders ever and we are totally psyched. We will soon be playing the new songs live all over the world in 2008. Look out for BT to announce shows and tours soon."
BRUTAL TRUTH bassist Danny Lilker previously described the group's new material as "some of the most intense shit we've ever written. After eight 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."
BRUTAL TRUTH earlier in the year reissued its heralded 1997 masterpiece "Sounds of the Animal Kingdom". The remastered 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 foreword from "Choosing Death" author Albert Mudrian.
