Official press release:
Belgian death metal horde, Serial Butcher – which features current and formers members of Aborted, Emeth, Moker, Ectopia and more – will spew forth their first full-length offering in five years this Fall via Unique Leader Records. Titled Brute Force Lobotomy, the follow-up to 2010’s lauded A Crash Course In Cranium Crushing offering was recorded and mixed by Lander Cluyse (Hessian, Oathbreaker, Amenra, etc.) at Hearse Studio, mastered by Serial Butcher guitarist Kenneth Keysers at Badass Audio Mastering and boasts ten brilliantly-formulated and expertly-executed death metal mantras. For twenty-two venomous minutes, Serial Butcher punches you in the throat rapidly and repeatedly with a brutal assortment of blistering leads, bestial hooks, blasts, grooves and guttural grotesqueries, its raw, crisp production only heightening its devious aural annihilation. If you consider yourself a sincere fan of boundless brutal death metal, you owe it to yourself to investigate this ingenious monstrosity.
Comments the band in a collective statement:
“Sometimes there’s need for careful thought… for tranquil conversation… for peaceful mediation. And sometimes… you just want to stab someone in the eye with a blunt, rusty knife. Until (s)he’s dead. And then you stab some more… Just to be sure…. It’s the very definition of the latest Serial Butcher recording, Brute Force Lobotomy.”
Enter Brute Force Lobotomy. The band’s epitome of pure sonic sickness. The record comes bedecked in the twisted renderings of renowned artist, Tony Koehl and sees the addition of Koen Verstraete (ex-Leptotrichia, ex-Aborted), replacing longtime bassist Van Goethem, who departed the band just before the record’s completion.
Brute Force Lobotomy will be released on CD and digital formats on September 18th, 2015 via Unique Leader Records. Teaser tracks and preorder info to be announced in the days to come.
