After reforming in 2012, Brutality have released one (incredible) EP, and are now asking for the fans to help them release their fourth album.

So far, the campaign has been going pretty slow. It's at 11% with 31 contributors so far, which says to me that it simply hasn't been spread enough. Since they are one of my favorite bands, I figured that the least I could do would be to post it on here to spread the word. There are some really cool perks available:

I think it may boil down more to the fact that Brutality aren't that well known. That is aside from Floridian death metal freaks like some of us in here. :D

They never made a big bang, and even now I barely see people mentioning them. Shame really, because they have some great releases.

I know they're not as successful as Obituary or Deicide, but they're far from a footnote in death metal history. I'd put them on the same level as, say Desultory in the Stockholm death metal scene. They've got over 5,000 likes on Facebook, which is a modest number (it's what my band's got...and we've only got two albums, d'oh!) but certainly enough to raise 15,000 dollars (or at least have more than 30 contributors involved!!). I think they just need more support to spread the word around, from sites like Metal Injection, Metal Sucks, & even Blabbermouth, because it really seems like a lot of people simply aren't aware they've even reformed!

I've heard the name before but never actually listened to anything by them until now. I've got Screams of Anguish going at the moment and...wow, this is some pretty good stuff! I might actually end up supporting this.

Great band ... but why do they need 15K to make an album these days? Does NILE even spend that much?

Nile definitely spends more than that.

There's a budget at the bottom of their campaign page. A lot of cash is going towards merchandise, as I suspected.

Pffft. Not really that much compared to the rest of the budget.

Yeah, exactly. I meant that as a response to Temple of Blood. They're looking at spending just under $27,000 in total and are asking for a little over half of that. And not all of that is going into recording. Seems more than reasonable to me.

Okay, I completely misinterpreted your intent. Sorry if I was a bit snippy. $15K really doesn't seem that unreasonable.

I kicked in to help them out after listening to a couple of their albums and ordering the first full-length. They're a seriously excellent band who I wish I'd discovered sooner.

Like I said, most people aren't aware of them. Not because they don't have the chops (because they do) but mostly because they're a band that's been more or less lost in death metal history. It's the same thing with Disincarnate really, and if James Murphy decided to (finally) record that sophomore record today without any presence in the media the same thing would happen.

Oh yeah, we agree on that one. Presence in the media does make a big difference, sadly it does.

Where the hell are they getting stickers done from cause that seems pretty damn high. The places I know of and quite a few of other people use and for 3000 stickers, full color, large design size, is still roughly 450.

I hope this band is successful with this and records for years to come but they could make a great sounding album for 8K or less.

I totally agree with that too. I figure they've decided to record at Morrisound out of familiarity, because Jim Morris has been producing their albums since 1993, I think. An iconic studio like that is going to cost them a pretty penny.

And yeah, I had no idea stickers were so expensive. Maybe they're massive and glow in the dark or something... I don't know, I've never had stickers made.

Picked up an original press of Screams of Anguish recently. Never thought I would find one.

I'll donate once I get paid!

I just contributed $10 and just found out about it yesterday. Hopefully it will be like Obituary's, where it far exceeds the goal.

Brutality are one of my favorite death metal bands, so I will be donating.

screams of anguish and When the Sky Turns Black are damn awesome, hopefully this picks up some traction.

I think the 'packs' are reasonably priced, especially if you're in the US
Not too keen on posters, stickers, koozies and shot glasses etc though

Does anyone know if the CDs will come in Digipaks or jewel cases?

I remember way back when I discovered this kind of metal, Brutality were on the same level as Monstrosity, Sepultura, Obituary, Suffocation, Morbid Angel, Cianide, Pungent Stench, Grave and Bolt Thrower etc
Perhaps being in New Zealand we were exposed to things differently but I definitely liked Brutality a lot

International pre-orders do suck balls though. With shipping charges and custom taxes you're bound to get stripped clean...

Lucky bastard! :p

I have to pay taxes on every parcel that goes over 45€, and shipping costs are included for that value... Yeah, can't order much more than three or four CDs at a time from outside the EU. :(
