Brute Force Lobotomy is the impending new full-length from Belgian death metal deviants, SERIAL BUTCHER, the band featuring within its ranks current and former members of Aborted, Emeth, Moker, Ectopia and more. Recorded and mixed by Lander Cluyse (Hessian, Oathbreaker, Amenra etc.) at Hearse Studio and mastered by SERIAL BUTCHER guitarist Kenneth Keysers at Badass Audio Mastering, Brute Force Lobotomy spews forth ten brilliantly-formulated and expertly-executed death metal mantras in the form of poetically titled tracks like “Bowel Soup,” “Facialized By A Flamethrower,” and “Rusty Lawnmowing Massacre.” For forty-two unfriendly minutes, SERIAL BUTCHER punches you in the throat rapidly and repeatedly with a punishing assortment of blistering leads, bestial hooks, blasts, grooves and guttural grotesqueries its raw, crisp production only heightening its devious aural annihilation.
The first official helping of Brute Force Lobotomy comes courtesy of No Clean Singing and their official premiere of second crusher “Sadistic Spare Parts Surgery,” noting accurately: “SERIAL BUTCHERmay be surgeons, but they obviously learned their surgical skills in a slaughterhouse, dishing out one flurry of vicious riffs after another, alternately jabbing and bludgeoning over a rhythm section that’s just as technically adept and just as remorseless. But what you may not be expecting is that SERIAL BUTCHERdeliver their brand of brutal death metal not only with a lot of technical flair, bone-cracking groove, and gruesome gutturals, but also with a lacing of insidious melody. So, in truth, the album cover art and title, the song name, and the band’s history may not actually prepare you fully for what you’re about to hear – because there’s more going on than just fracturing your cranium and scooping out the contents.”

SERIAL BUTCHER was forged in 1995. Likened to a more brutal version of Cannibal Corpse, the band performed regularly throughout Belgium. Following a slew of demos, one EP, 2010’s critically-lauded A Crash Course In Cranium Crushing full-length and a variety of lineup shifts, the band eventually cultivated a dedicate following within the bowels of a dedicated death metal underground.
In 2013, SERIAL BUTCHER was selected to take part of a worldwide art project called A Box-Sized Die created by Portuguese artist, Joao Onofre. The band was asked to perform in a fully sound and oxygen proof box measuring 5 feet and 10.87 inches at all sides and managed to do so for nearly twenty-five minutes. The audience could not see or hear the band but only capture vibrations coming of the cube. The event took place at the Center For Contemporary Art in Aalst, Belgium, was broadcast on regional TV and reaped the band commercial airplay on Studio Brussel with a live interview.
And now comes Brute Force Lobotomy, the band’s epitome of pure sonic sickness. The record comes bedecked in the twisted renderings of renowned artist, Tony Koehl. If you consider yourself a sincere fan of boundless brutal death metal, you owe it to yourself to investigate this ingenious monstrosity. Brute Force Lobotomy will be released on CD and digital formats on September 18th, 2015 via Unique Leader Records. Preorder your copy today at THIS LOCATION.
