The Hell: Brutopia

Album Review

Watford’s masked avengers go completely ’knots

Pinpointing what is so addictive about this six-piece is a challenge, but the tumbling basslines, twisted vocals, ‘fuck you’ attitude and brash party-time approach to metallic hardcore all play a big part.

The masks, the names (Jackhammer, Bag Hound, Honey Badger) and the chuggingly heavy swift pace is intended more as a mystery than a gimmick, so it’s unsurprising to discover their openness to half-hearted Slipknot comparisons because both bands share an equal love of all that is edgy, while also producing a smart, aggressive sound that’s far from a joke.
