...Brutal as Bruto...

 
BRUTO
Chile
Stoner Rock

„Bruto“, is a band constellation from Santiago, Chile. 4 long-haired guys and a sound a lot of bands dream of for their first record! No big words this time, let’s just get straight to the music: First track, first bomb. Really innovative stuff. The seizmogramm looks like a picasso after these guys have finished their work. Musically a nice mixture of stoner and punk rock. „Icarvs“, the second song begins with a hazy punch directly into your face. This 4 tone riff-monster is followed by some really catchy, rolling beats. Well structured desert rock riffs with solid drums and a cool fuck-you-all-voice. Some guitar impros with a sticky base behind guide you to the end of the track. Hot desert feelings are also coming up their way with „Electroking“. Down the highway with a good load of whiskey in the back and at least one in your hand. Yeah ok, it's the same old thing, but i mean why not?! And also the vocals make it something special. Well done, in my opinion. 4th one. Time to slow down. Also quieter than the other ones. They keep it rolling. Same in „Galopar“. More mid-tempo riffin' to take your mind and roll it into a typical tommy chong joint. Also that seems to be the point where they found their sound. It just soaks you in. The next one continues as brilliant as the last one. So basically the same story, maybe just with the additional the slogan „it's all about the fuzz“. „Odalisca“. Slow and heavy sound wall which starts moving. Now you defintely have to cancel the musical classification from the beginning. No punk at all. Here the self-creation „Fuzzgresivo“ fits really good. Nice to get surprised like this. But that's exactly what i meant. They seem to focus their sound, what really becomes clear in this one. Guitar tunes to fall in love with! Delayed fuzz jam sound...you can't go wrong with this. By far, my favourite track on this record! „Lava“ fits pretty well. It gets faster again. Faster but not less groovier. For all who hoped for a gently ending, Bruto got the right answer: Fuck you! „Taxi shaman“ is definitely the opposite of a sof end. Short, fast, rolling, and no compromises!
