This review is from: When the Sky Turns Black [Digipak] (Audio CD)
Unsurprisingly, Florida's Brutality; (another of Americas lost metal bands) rises to the occasion in 1994 to sweep metal heads off they're feet all over again in this mesmorising second album. "When the sky turns black" is the second full-length studio LP which succeeds the underground classic of "Screams of anguish" only a year before. Both the band name and the title of this album are, I have to say, fitting adjectives for the accomplishements within. If there was an impending apocalypse for planet Earth this record could well be its accompanying evil soundtrack.

Needless to say, the record itself is a fine production of real & meaty brutal death metal, without restraint and a good measure of quality control in the extremities commonly associated with the sub-genre. A deep throated vocal cord in combination with a superb bass and production set the scene for a scary and grim picturesque. The musicianship also goes way beyond the technically competant, with a suitably balanced check for dual melodies and gruffy rhythms throughout.

Undoubtatly, the album and all it's contents demonstate Brutality's capability and versatility other than just breakneck riffing, blast beating and noise. The record takes us down a different road of grim-ness and the absurd, like the songs:- "Race Defects, the beautiful Awakening, Foul lair and Shrine of the master" as just some of the real highlights. Brutality were even good enough to do us a truly commendable reinturpretation of Black Sabbath's - Electric Funeral, which could be even better handled here than the original incarnation.

This is certainly a five star album, and a curious little gem for the death metal maestros to look into, whom might be looking for something in this street but with a twist. They just don't make 'em like this anymore!.... Recommend' it.
