00:00 | Kapitan Korsakov – dangerously abbreviated to KKK – are back!
"Physical Violence Is The Least Of My Priorities" is recorded and mixed by kindred spirit Steve Albini and show Kapitan Korsakov at their best: an eclectic mix of uncompromised noiserock, catchy melodies bathing in a mudpool of distorted sounds and heartbreaking songs.
"There are no genres in music. There is only good, sincere music and there is bad music", says frontman Pieter-Paul Devos.
Honest songwriting, authenticity and disregarding all things fashionable are Kapitan Korsakov's trademarks. Quite the relief in times of mediocre radio-pollution.
00:00 | Between Slayer and Savages
Brutus rage like a maelstrom. They are a meteor shower of sound. This trio from Leuven, Belgium create expansive, stratospheric punk not quite like any other band around.
With post-rock construction, black metal dynamics, hardcore energy, prog and math-rock flourishes and pure pop melodies all detectable on their debut album Burst, Brutus manage to straddle the significant divide between Slayer and Savages, The Smiths and Slowdive, Dillinger Escape Plan and Deus - and all with just three members expertly colluding to make a sound as monolithic as it is emotive.
