The French avant-garde/metal/jazz trio known as Morglbl are back with their latest collection of instrumental insanity, titled Brutal Romance. If you haven't yet experienced the musical pleasures from Christophe Godin (guitars), Ivan Rougny (bass), and Aurelien Ouzoulias (drums and percussion), you are really missing out on something special. Imagine a wacky cross between Steve Vai, Mike Keneally, Freak KItchen, Steve Morse Band, and Frank Zappa, only more metallic, and you have an idea of the kind of stuff these guys bring to the table.
Brutal Planet is the 21st studio album by Alice Cooper, released in 2000. Lyrically, it's a concept album that deals with themes of dark "social fiction", including domestic violence ("Take It Like a Woman"), prejudice ("Blow Me a Kiss"), war ("Pick Up the Bones") and school shootings ("Wicked Young Man"). The album is the second album in a trilogy of albums (beginning with The Last Temptation and ending with Dragontown).
eminal grindcore/extreme metal outfit BRUTAL TRUTH (Kevin Sharp: vocals, Dan Lilker: bass, Richard Hoak: drums, Erik Burke: guitar) will release its new full-length album, "End Time", on September 27 in North America via Relapse Records. The CD was recorded with Doug White at Watchmen Studios in Lockport, New York and was mixed by Jason P.C. at Goatsound Studios. Mastering duties were handled by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound.
