      Brutal Truth's second album (1994).

      Brutal Truth's second album continues to push forward their death/grind hybrid, and results in a truer fusion than the previous album's more varied selection of styles. Gone are the four-second outbursts, with only one song coming in at less than a minute long, and the faster style is more prevalent throughout, with a few notable exceptions that slow considerably for contrast.

      The album opens rather surprisingly in this manner, with the monstrous 'Collapse' that would perhaps be more suited as a climactic finale, but whoever said grind bands played by the rules. Contrary to the majority of the material on offer here, this song is extremely slow in its heaviness, but ends up sounding no less devastating, while Kevin Sharp's vocals display their fantastic range between deep growls and pained screams that are used to great effect throughout the album.

      Although not mainstream by any means, Brutal Truth were always one of the more prominent acts in their field, and this is reflected in the generous production values that really help to flesh this album out, paying particular attention to Dan Lilker's excellent bass work that would almost certainly be inaudible on a lower budget release. The band only lets this studio trickery go to its head on a couple of weird occasions, namely the effects-laden finale and the curious interruption 'Ironlung' part-way through, but thankfully they once again avoid the temptation to include gory film samples for the sake of it.
