BRUTALITY WILL PREVAIL - announce album details

UK Hardcore outfit BRUTALITY WILL PREVAIL will unleash their new album - 'Suspension Of Consciousness' - on 7th April via Siege Of Amida / Century Media.

The album, the band’s fourth full length, will mark the recorded debuts of frontman Louis Gauthier and drummer Craig Reynolds, who joined the BWP Cult during the international touring cycle for 2012’s ‘Scatter The Ashes’.

Despite a bludgeoning live schedule which saw the band exporting their distinct and influential brand of down-tempo heaviness as far afield as Japan, Australia and Indonesia, Brutality Will Prevail spent the majority of 2013 developing new material, eager to fully showcase the fresh blood in their ranks.

November 2013 finally saw the quintet - completed by guitarists Ash Gray and Nick Rix, and bassist Jordan Murray - enter the prestigious Monnow Valley Studios (Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Queen).

As drummer Reynolds recalls: “We recorded through amazing vintage equipment. The entire album was tracked in just 6 days with the intensity of a live show; there was none of this computer reliant, digi-fix-this-fix-that shit that today’s heavy scene has become so polluted with.”

Once BWP’s kinetic tracking session was complete, Converge’s Kurt Ballou was tasked with mixing duties, the veteran producer bringing his unique, inimitable snarl to a recording already bursting with feral aggression. Though brute force is far from all that ‘Suspension..’ has to offer, BWP drawing on a varied spectrum of influences this time around, from Slayer and Slipknot to Baroness and Cave In, to bring new layers of depth and creativity to their sonic forge. “This album is the first time we haven’t held ourselves back in any way,” says guitarist Ash Gray. “It still has some hallmarks of the classic BWP sound, but we also really pushed ourselves to progress and try new things, and no one more so than Louis (Gauthier, vocals) - his performance really shines, and there are definitely some surprises throughout the record. The past year, culminating in this album, has been about much more than just a line up change, this is a fresh start.”
