So this 'local' band BRUTUS has just released their first full length. They sound quite special, they kinda mix a punk/hardcore vibe bass guitar and drum with post- rock/metal like guitar parts. I'm curious about what the slightly older audience here thinks about them. I think their album is staying up on this link for some time (thank the Dutch for free legal music, funny enough the band is here from Belgium): http://3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/albums/Brutus.html
Personally, I think they are one of the freshest takes on "heavy" rock music together with stuff like PUP (whilst completely unsimiliar).
