Interviews: Brutta

This is a new interview with the Death Metal band Brutta from Brazil. Check out the interview and follow the band on his FACEBOOK PAGE.

1. Where did you get the idea for the band name, you plan it or came out just like that?

We were looking for a cool name for one of our first songs, and Brutta came in. We liked so much the name that we decided to keep as the band’s name, and the song’s name, as a tribute to it. The name is powerful and describes perfectly the band’s sound, ie, a brutal mass of wicked loudness. Funny history though: After coming up with the band's name, Brutta, we discovered that its meaning in Italian is 'ugly female’. That was funny but also weird for us and we almost give up the name, since we don’t want to offend anyone, especially the ladies. We believe true beauty lies within each one of us. It's about who you are, not what you look like. 

2. Why did you want to play this genre?

We grew up listening to death and black metal. Bands like Death, Morbid Angel, Sadus, Autopsy, Mayhem, Immortal and etc were always on the record player. The intensity of its sound, the power of the riffs, and the aggression of the vocals (not to mention the dirty of its recordings) made us want to play this genre. The passion for brutality and extreme music was growing fast in us. It was almost like meant to be, ie, impossible not to try to play as evilness as possible.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Yes. Gledson and Adriano shared some music during the ’90s. Also, Tom and Adriano are the ‘prog duo’ from Athemon, a project that Gledson also made part of, as the guest drummer.

4. Each band member's favorite band?

Adriano: Death

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs?

Writing a song is something that comes slightly different from inspiration. It is more like a need for it. A quest for liberation energy and decompressing tight spaces that hurts the soul.

Adriano: when I first heard the song Immortal Rites from Morbid Angel, it blew my mind. Around 1:38 min an absolutely genius dark-evil riff appears. That moment changed my perspective of absorbing music and twisted a lot of my desire for touching the unreachable unknown brought by the mystery of wicked riffs. The desire to create evil atmospheres with dissonance was bigger than anything else.

6. Where was your last gig?

Adriano: that was before the lockdown, in a theater called Gazeta in São Paulo.

7. Where would you like to act?

Adriano: all around the world, especially where the music result sound looks like crystal transparent water, ie, on venues that get concerned about the quality of the sound and provide excellent support to it.

8. Whom would you like to feature with?

Adriano: it would be a dream to open a concert to Morbid Angel. Also, we’ll need another guitarist to do that, so another dream would have Erick Rutan sharing guitars with us on stage, destroying Brutta’s music, and head banging by our side. 

9. Whom not? 

Adriano: Nobody, why not?

10. Have any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tips for beginners on how to beat that?

Adriano: butterflies in the stomach are very common for artists. In the end, finding your balance and reaching concentration is the key to letting yourself fly around and along with the performance.

11. What bands have inspired you the most?

Adriano: Death (Chuck’s riffs are absolutely delightful to listen to), Morbid Angel (Trey’s evilness is like a magnet), and Sadus (for its fine creativity).

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for?

Adriano: sorry, but nothing weird so far.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Adriano: well, being a fan myself I know about the beat passion flowing inside me regarding to metal. I’m sure all meatheads share the same kind of passion, each one on their particular way reaching particular bands, songs, and riffs. With that said, I can say that I admire and love the fans because it’s possible to have a true exchange of energy generated by this awesome type of music: metal.

14. What do you think of our site?

It’s a great website, very objective with loads of content and yet very well separated and presented. A fine archive database for metal fans. Also a perfect environment for the ones that care about mining new bands.

15. Something to add?

Yes. Thank you a lot for your interest and for opening your space to talk a little bit about Brutta. We really appreciate it. Be sure to expect a sonic punch in your head by 17th June 2022, when Brutta’s will be officially released.
