Brutus is a trio formed in Leuven, Belgium, which came into being in 2013. Comprising a wide range of players, Stefanie Mannaerts, drummer and vocalist, is capable of the most passionate vocals, switching from deceptively melodic to downright laryngeal in the blink of an eye, while playing blast beats, post rock and punk style on drums. Accompanied by guitarist Stijn Vanhoegaerden, who also moves from ethereal post-rock tones to levels of speed and hardcore punk energy, and Peter Mulders, who is a master of tone on bass.
It's the way the band blend all their musical styles and influences so seamlessly that has become their own signature and unique style. Their albums "Burst" (2017) and "Nest" (2019) have received rave reviews, as have their live shows, which have earned them invitations to play some of the biggest festivals in Europe and North America. They are signed worldwide to Sargent House alongside artists such as Chelsea Wolfe, Russian Circles, Deafheaven, Earth, Emma Ruth Rundle, etc. and are on Hassle Records for the UK and Europe.
