Album review: Brutai – Born
Share This Article:
Debut albums always make for an exciting review. The first full-length studio release from most groups often leads to an experience that demonstrates a young, vitalised and excited band, more desperate, hungry and adamant than ever to impress a new audience. And Brutai’s upcoming record, Born, is no exception to this belief. The young, London-based quintet have been building the anticipation for the album ever since February, when they released the melodic single ‘Deep’. Their set on the Sophie Lancaster Stage of the 2016 Bloodstock Festival only fuelled the fire, possibly making Born the most built-up rock debut of 2016. And as the album’s mighty opener, ‘Relapse’, breaks down into its first primal and slightly proggy riff, any rock fan blessed to know of the existence of Brutai will understand that this release was worth the wait. As the track continues, its most notable aspect is probably the vocals of singer/guitarist Felix Lawrie, who alternates continuously between growled and clean vocals in a very metalcore-esque manner.
