Brutal Truth Goodbye Cruel World

Brutal Truth may be gone, but the name will not be forgotten. The New York-based metal band formed in 1990 with only one thing in mind — to play as fast as possible — and managed to accomplish so much more. Goodbye Cruel World is an amazing salute to a much deserving, talented bunch. Recorded live in Australia during their final tour, the record is a testament to their live ferocity. Also included in this double album are a number of covers, from the obscure (YDI, Agothacles, MDC) to the semi-famous (Melvins, Germs, Black Sabbath). A staggering 56 songs in total, Goodbye Cruel World is a sure bet to please the metal fan in your life. (Relapse)
