Brutality Will Prevail rejoin Holy Roar Records!

Posted on June 21st, 2016

We are over the moon to finally be able to announce the return of Brutality Will Prevail to Holy Roar Records. Releasing seminal second album 'Root Of All Evil' and having a helping hand with both 'Scatter The Ashes' and 'Sleep Paralysis', the band went onto join Century Media Records for 4th record 'Suspension of Consciousness' - touring Australia, Japan and China along the way, as well as playing Reading/Leeds, Download and touring with the cream of the metal and hardcore crop.

Yesterday the band began recording their 5th LP, tentatively set for a late 2016/early 2017 release. Expect a return to old-school heaviness.
