Only good will come from the comeback of Brutal Truth.
I think.

I was just listening to the live 2cd recently and thinking about when I saw them live. Fun gig with a lot of energy. I'm not sure if a comeback is necessary? For me their debut is still the greatest... I'm just becoming an old and grumpy man Mad

The first 2 records rule. I'll definitely see one of the reunion gigs, if they head over to the east coast.

I love 'Sounds Of The Animal Kingdom' as well. Sometimes it's even my fav of their records. They went from a massive death/grind sounding band to a totally crazy and fucked-up grindcore band.
I had the pleasure to see them during their last European tour, before their split, in 98 with Six Feet Under and Deicide as headliner. They destroyed everything live and most of the people there, mainly death-metal fans, looked like they didn't understand what was going on. Kevin barefoot with his Stetson finishing the show with a mic in each hand, that was brillant! After, Deicide seemed sooo boring...

I guess I miss out on never seeing BT play live because, I have to say that on record they sounded patently boring. The first album was interesting back in 1992 (?), mainly because Scott Lewis' drumming was incredibly fast but other than that, the songs were rather uninspired... When Hoak joined the band started sounding more playful but then it got too chaotic for its own good... Yeah, perhaps on stage this actually made sense but the records were just not there. I kinda like 'Kill Trend Suicide' because it is chaotic in a positive way but the rest bores my tits off... Their reunion is, in my book, very much uncalled for...

Boy, what a negative creep I am...

I would love to see them live again, I saw them play there second to last gig before they disbanded (I think?). It was a great show, about 50 people in a small venue and they were supported by some straightedge bands, who did not think much of them when they opened with the song Choice of a new Generation and announced that “this is a song about weed” Baaa Haaaa Haa.
I still think Need to Control is their best album, I fucking love the track Displacement!!

A couple points:

1) Need To Control rules.
2) Meho is wrong, but still a lovely chap!

yes, that should be interesting. Let's see what they can produce in 2006 and if it's still relevant.

On another note, I want a fucking Painkiller tshirt too!!!!

i really liked PARTS of need to control, mainly due to their more pronounced experimentation with the noise genre. it had the charming quality of going from grind to weird to doom at moments notice very often, though it does have it's derivative "death metal" moments. sharp's voice was very unhinged too. the acid was definitely dropped for its making. i also owe that album eternal gratitude for getting me into the pain teens through a namedrop in the liner notes.

I'd go along with Bernard, Sounds Of The Animal Kingdom is great. The production bewilders me though. I presume they wanted to recapture the lo-fi feel of the classic grindcore albums by making it sound like it was recorded in mono in a shed or something Confused

Whatever the thinking was, it remains a career high point in my opinion. Extreme Conditions... was good fun, but pretty generic; Need To Control eclipsed it although I'm still more likely to give the debut a spin these days (can't beat the dialogue samples); Kill Trend Suicide was pretty unfocused and the live album is....err...a live album.
