Serial Butcher Brute Force Lobotomy on LP
Belgian death metal horde, Serial Butcher – which features current and former members of Aborted, Emeth, Moker, Ectopia and more — will spew forth their first full-length offering in five years with Brute Force Lobotomy. The follow-up to 2010’s lauded A Crash Course In Cranium Crushing was recorded and mixed by Lander Cluyse (Hessian, Oathbreaker, Amenra) at Hearse Studio, mastered by guitarist Kenneth Keysers at Badass Audio Mastering and boasts ten brilliantly-formulated and expertly-executed death metal mantras.
For forty-two venomous minutes, Serial Butcher punches you in the throat rapidly and repeatedly with a brutal assortment of blistering leads, bestial hooks, blasts, grooves and guttural grotesqueries, its raw, crisp production only heightening its devious aural annihilation. If you consider yourself a sincere fan of boundless brutal death metal, you owe it to yourself to investigate this ingenious monstrosity.
The band’s epitome of pure sonic sickness. The record comes bedecked in the twisted renderings of renowned artist, Tony Koehl and sees the addition of Koen Verstraete (Leptotrichia, Aborted), replacing longtime bassist Van Goethem, who departed the band just before the record’s completion.
