“Back in March, I ended my review of Burst saying that Brutus’ debut was one of the albums of the year. Eight or so months later, that opinion still holds true. I still can’t get my head around how drummer Stefanie Mannaerts plays and sings like that. You want post-hardcore, punk, black metal, shoegaze and post-rock all wrapped up in one explosive album? Make Burst the top of your Christmas wishlist.”
