About Brutal Metal
What is Brutal Metal?
This site is a spinoff from my original reference site
I don't just collect AOR and hard rock, which is the primary
focus of Heavy Harmonies; I also collect heavy metal as well,
including a lot of material that is WAAAAAY too heavy for that
site. So I figured that since I have a site mechanism in place
that works well, why not adapt it and provide a reference site
for heavy metal? Thus BrutalMetal.Com was born.
This site is devoted to discography information, rather than
What's Hot!, interviews, gossip, etc. Rather, this is meant to be
an informational resource for people looking for obscure and/or
minor-label CD releases.
So have a look around, find some things to add to your collection,
add some CDs to the database, and by all means, drop me an
email if you have any
suggestions for the site.
Ok, enough chit-chat! SHOW ME THE MUSIC!
January 7, 2010 - Site overhaul;
now uses the scripts and functionality of heavyharmonies.com.
Things Yet to be Done
1. Data entry, data entry, data entry.
2. LOTS of scanning
4. lyric archive (distant future).
That Which is Contained Herein
Anything and everything falling within the following catgories:
classic heavy metal, NWOBHM, power metal, speed and thrash metal,
death metal, black metal, doom, ambient metal, grindcore, industrial
metal, and rap metal;
limited to full-length albums and EPs. No unofficial releases, bootlegs,
If you're not sure whether or not a particular band falls within
these constraints, just ask (realistically, it's an aesthetic judgment).
Music that is definitely NOT appropriate for this site:
rap, dance, techno, AOR, hip-hop, rap, classical, rap, jazz, grunge,
rap, straight industrial, rap, country, reggae, rap, oldies,
folk, opera, rap, blues, soul, hard rock, r& b, and lastly, rap.
Christian Heavy Metal
For those who are looking for a new source for heavy metal, I
recommend checking out Christian metal groups. While at times the
"message" can get a bit heavy-handed, there is some extremely good
music worth exploring. I personally am an agnostic, and my listening
tendencies stress the overall sound rather than lyrics, so extremely
faith-oriented lyrics have never bothered me. Your mileage may vary. :)
I've attempted to denote Christian bands with a small logo next to
the band name:
(which stands for Contemporary Christian Music).
Submitting CDs for Inclusion
Information to be added to these pages is more than welcome! Also,
if you know of links to web pages about specific bands covered in my pages, let
me know and I'll be glad to add them.
As always, feedback is welcomed and encouraged. If you like the pages, let
me know! If you think the pages suck, let me know what would make them better!
[insert band here] Ain't [insert genre here]
Take a chill pill....relax... Genre boundaries blur considerably.
I take artistic license to put links to
whatever bands I feel like. You no like? Make yer own damn pages. :)
Several people have gone out of their way to spend their valuable
time doing data entry to make Brutal Metal a more complete repository
of musical information. My thanks go out to them!
