Choice Of A New Generation - tribute to Brutal Truth, 2000


The Eternal Zer Top 10 has many things of first necessity like Eisenvater and Die You Bastard!, and of course a very large wagon for the undisputed kings of terminal grindcore BRUTAL TRUTH!!!!!!! I just spent two days listening exclusively to BT (ah non, I also had some Massacre and Pungent Stench, sorry for the lie), so I felt like posting a bit of their discography. BT have been awesome from day one and have always remained at the top. A unique style, a mastery of dynamics, a merciless execution (watch them throw a 90 minutes performance in your general direction and pick up your jaw), and the best people I've ever had the pleasure to play shows with. There are grinding bands as fast/killer like Rotten Sound or Sayyadina, but to me BT offer just one inch more of class and head-carving variations. UNBELIEVABLE!!!

yes Side A is exactly the same recording as on the live @ Noctum Studios / For Grind Freaks Only. Side B is not.

Track list on both live in Mtl 2006 and in Qc 2009 : too lazy to make it, figure it our yourself and post it in the comments. Zer. Live Mtl 2006 is the complete show from which were taken the 2 songs on the split 7" with Narcosis and TFD, recorded by myself. Live Qc 2009 recorded by Seb, mastered here.

I have a few new / unplayed copies left of the Narcosis/TFD split 7", $5 + shipping (-> l a u r e n t [at] c h u r c h o f z e r [dot] com, remove blanks and do other things with the brackets content).
We consume so much Japanese noise that the current tragedy there is all the more aggravated when you read unbelievable shit like that:


  1. As for the Japan comments you posted:

    People never disappoint, do they?

    RE: BT

    Haven't seen them in 20 years. Time sure flies.

  2. I'm still stunned, such imbeciles are able to use a computer ? Fantastic.

    BT today are even crazier than 20 years ago!

  3. Brutal Truth (and Total Fucking Destruction too) should be illegal. My eardrums cannot follow.

  4. Les brèves de comptoir sans le vin blanc (ou les Deschiens sans Gibolin), c'est moins marrant…
    On peut se rassurer en pensant qu'il vont sucer des pastilles d'iode à s'en étouffer.


    Ps : merci pour ce blog et pour Roger Mag (Remember 'L'homme qui Valéry Giscard d'Estaing et les poumons'zine ou à peu près ?)
    Ps2 : l'extrait d'Idiocracy me rappelle un certain 'Tournez manège'… A quand ton retour ? Et quel T-shirt mettras-tu ?

  5. J'ai même pas tout lu les commentaires des caves. Déprimant. La vérité est butale,c'est pourquoi tous les humains y rêvent mais sont incapable de la prendre. Amen et Bonne journée!

  6. Greatest BT post!!!...About all those idiots writing all this bullshit about tragedy in Japan...Well,they have to be gringos...Pearl Harbour?...What about what theyre doing in Afganistan or Irak?...Or all the atrocities their goverment have managed to do in all the world???...What about all the northamerican natives and the slavery???...So mucho for this retarded yankees...

  7. The remarks are too moronic to be taken serious, the situation's not.
    I also appreciated the mathematicians of the apocalypse.

  8. L'homme qui Valéry Giscard d'Estaing et les poumons ! Zer ! Grands souvenirs en parallèle successive de Possessed By Speed, Les faux fils de thrash bourrent, Rock Fort, Poulet Basquaise, Extra Jazz, L'annuaire de l'Ardèche... D'ailleurs tu me dois un exam de maths à Sciences Po.
    Bon, pour tournez manège, j'attends la confirmation du véliplanchiste de substitution.

  9. Brutal Truth is good, but I don't care for all the marijuana business. It's no good for you.

  10. :-))))
    Well done Anonymous, we have a winner. But there will never be any Youth Of Today on this blog.

  11. I should hope not. YOT sucks!

    And I admire your passion for music.

  12. Wow, that's idiotic. This is one of the moment when i feel ashamed to be human.
