It is doubtful the most extreme end of the musical spectrum has ever possessed such a transfixing dichotomy as BRUTAL TRUTH. The band progressed with boundless enthusiasm through the primal fury of traditional grindcore and hardcore punk. They attacked suffocating city life on the edge of the 21st century and its media noise overload with the bare-knuckled forcefulness of passion, conviction and a simple love for playing music. They created chaos with a surgical precision and finesse unmatched by their peers.
The primitive origins of BRUTAL TRUTH can be traced back to the early nineties when infamous bassist extraordinaire Danny Lilker created the group. The initial three-piece lineup featuring Danny on vocals/bass, guitarist Brent "Gurn" McCarty and drummer Scott Lewis was completely raw and only a side project to Danny's other musical endeavors. The trio issued a quick demo and single before adding the vocal presence of Atlanta-born music journalist Kevin Sharp.
Due to their willingness to experiment in various noise ensembles outside the band, BRUTAL TRUTH amassed a disparate audience: metalheads, punkers, grind and underground hardcore fans, art-noise and experimental music enthusiasts. The band was lauded as having helped make it possible for noise artists to establish themselves in North America.
