Brutal Truth - Need To Control (2010 Reissue)


From: USA
Year: 1994
Genre: Grindcore

Easily one of my top 3 grind albums of all time, this is the 2010 re-mastered reissue of Need to Control which contains a Pink Floyd cover and a kick ass cover of Celtic Frosts’ Dethroned Emperor (!!). It stands apart from the rest of their catalog in that its got healthy doses of crust punk, thrash, sludge and death metal mixed in with the grind and even though the guitars are a bit experimental at times, its much more straight forward than their last 4 albums and much more varied than their first album. It’s the quality of the songwriting that makes this album so great for me, every aspect of it has been burned into my brain since the first time I heard it in 94, its just a great album. As far as re-mastered albums go, if you love this album as much as I do, its definitely worth checking out, everything is crisper and riffs that were lost before are pushed to the front. And if you’ve never heard it before, what the hell are you waiting for? Put on track 14 (Displacement), specifically, blast the volume and grind.
