Belgian post-hardcore trio Brutus has released their latest Audiotree live session as part of the “From Nothing” series.

Says the band: “It’s Halloween, and to celebrate, we have something extra special for you: our live Audiotree session is now available.

As part of the ‘From Nothing’ series, this session combines our music with an interview that provides insight into who we are. During our tour of the US earlier this year, we took a moment to sit down and chat about our journey and experiences. We are both humbled and thrilled to share this with you.”

Audiotree comments: “Sitting in the studio during the take of “Miles Away / Brave« was stunning. The presentation, power, and warrior-like cries from their vocalist, Stefanie Mannaerts, was so visceral. Brutus’ live performance brings out something deep and primal within all of us, and channels it through its three members.

When asked about this, they respond quite plainly: it’s about hanging out with your friends, being yourself, and having fun. Such a simple idea from one of the most recognizable sounds in modern rock and metal music. Undeniably, Brutus is a force to be reckoned with, both in presentation and execution. Drumming and singing has been done before, but never like this. And when bolstered by the melodic guitar stylings of Stijn Vanhoegaerden and the huge bass tones of Peter Mulders, it feels as if 12 people are playing instead of 3.

Attending their performance that evening, it was clear how commanding of your attention this band is, while being shrouded in darkness with nearly no front-lighting whatsoever. And yet you can’t look away. It feels like watching 3 ancient deities perform music from the heavens, but it’s really just Stijn, Peter, and Stefanie having fun together. Words cannot explain how honored we are to share this brilliant performance!”
