Brutal Truth  


While the distinction between grindcore and extreme death metal a bit blurry, there is no question that Brutal Truth were pioneers and innovators in the grindcore field. Brutal Truth songs are furious, twisted, hyperspeed blasts of noise, with nary a trace of melody or sublety. They disbanded in 1998 shortly before the release of the aptly-titled Goodbye Cruel World, but announced a reformation in 2006, and released a new album in the spring of 2009.
