Being a band with a well-documented turbulent career, Brutality managed to have a fine body of discography work in their on-and-off career. Four studio albums that put them among the best death metal bands that the Tampa scene, in Florida, has exported to the world. And we’re talking Tampa, Florida, home of the best US death metal bands.
When Brutality announced, in October 2020, the band would be splitting up, the whole world was left stranded – once again – except for one person. Michael H. Andersen, Emanzipation Productions A&R, saw that as an opportunity to release a kind of a swansong for the band and approached them to do so. As Brutality had two new songs in store, the members started to, slowly, get their heads around the idea of a final release, and this is how “Sempiternal” decided to take form. “Orchestrated Devastation” and “Fluent In Silence” were recorded in studio, and Brutality decided to add two old tracks - “Crushed” and “Artistic Butchery” - which were re-recorded in 2018, and inly available until now in a limited 7” EP self-released by the band. Finally, the group included four tracks (“When The Sky Turns Black”, “Cries Of The Forsaken”, “Cryptorium” and “48 To 52”) recorded live at the Maryland Deathfest in May 2019.
