Highlights:  Snakes in a black Suit, God of Carnage

In a world full of terror, villains, deceiving, while all the carnage that happens in a world ruled by dictatorship, and within all the circumstances in Egypt,in between the terror done by the Muslims-brotherhood wanting to impact the freedom of Egypt, which Egyptians gained after getting rid of those assholes, Brutus came with their new EP-release "villains" to express their rage against all of those massacre done by those jackasses of "Muslim brotherhood".

 

Brutus are a four-member-band from Cairo/Egypt and formed in late 2007. They already released a few singles before, and here they come to show us the Egyptian rage, in a brutal Death-/Deathcore-shape. "Villains" is the five tracks EP, and it starts with "Snakes in a black Suit": a hell of furious riffage, breakdowns and blast, and what's so obvious in this track is that it talks about all the blood have been shed through the years of revolution and the suffering Egyptians had to experience through the years because of the corrupted regime - as they expressed their rage against those corrupted regimes.

 

I like how they hooked the verses and chorus together. The intro was a good demonstration for what this EP is about: great riffage, harmonics, melody and drumming. 

 

"BURIED IN THE BLOOD OF THE MARTYRS

WE ARE THE REAL MEN

WHO CAN CONTROL OUR SHIT

EASY DEALING WITH LUCK

CONFIRMING OUR SUCCESSS

TOP TALKING IN THE MIC

I DON'T WANNA HEAR YOUR GLASS VOICE

PUSSY SMILE ... FAKE SMELLY

OU LOST ... ALL YOU HAD"

 

A hell of a chorus that really demonstrates how Egyptians react to those corrupted regimes .

Do you know that Egypt always was the cemetery of colonial ambitions and colonists, as no country or regime or fucked up party ever could rule, since the Human birth, and the start of the concept of state was in egypt rule, egyptians were and still are the assassins of the fucked up regimes trying to mess with the country, and no bad regime ever continued, or no fucked up colonization. Yeah, they are "assassins ", that 's the 2nd track of the album. "Assassins" as it demonstrates the will to fight all the fucked up regimes. That they won't stand, and keep revolting for the sake of their country. What an amazing intro, I liked the melody, the breakdowns, and all in all it is a hell of an experience .

 

Listening to "God for Carnage" takes you through a trip where you'll find the will of egyptians to sacrifice their blood, within the carnage happening in Egypt through the years. Still there is no will to let this country get ruined by a bunch of idiots, so I was so amused while listening to the track, a hell of windmill headbanging in the end of the track, and actually you'll head-bang the whole four minutes: brutal vocal lines, riffing and drumming. Right now in Egypt there is a terrorizing action happening for days by the Muslim brotherhood after sabotaging minds, economy, and everything beautiful in Egypt. Poverty filled up Egypt, because "Villains " ruled the country, how though they could sabotage our dreams of freedom "Villains " is about what those dick headed tried to turns Egypt into. A lot of rage is demonstrated, furious riffing, enraged drumming and bass lines . That's how "Brutus" expressed their fury against those fucked-up assholes.

 

"TRAGEDY PAVES WAY FOR A NEW ERAI HAVE SEEN ENOUGHTO FORGET ALL THAT I HAVE BEEN TAUGHT "

 

That's how "Deceiver", the last album track's lyrics started. As Egyptians we still have faith in what is coming to be better, we still have hope for freedom, democracy, stability, and well living. What amazing melodies, a great composition, a lot of rage in the intro though, as it shows that Egypt won't stand for the corruption. I've seen so many bands that expressed rage, and fury against corrupted regimes, but it wasn't as brutal as "Brutus" is.

 

Well composed tracks , amazing harmony and musicianship, yet not that amazing production, or mixing, and mastering thing. Though the artwork is somehow related to the lyrical theme, being tied up, but it's not that related. The originality and influences are not so showing, they did the project in their own style.  When it comes to music, they demonstrated melodies well in the right places, and, they got brutal in the right time. What an amazing drumming  and fury baselines. Though I didn't like the vocal that much, as lyrics are not showing in his growls or screams, weak screams though, he needs to work out more on his vocals more , but he's somehow unique though.  My epilogue for this EP: This album should be played during any happenings in egypt now, it must be shared outside of Egypt to show what Egyptians are made of. They did a good job with demonstrating what they want to demonstrate. This album you should in no way miss.
