With Trouble's Bruce Franklin and the Allies/Brighton's Mark Robertson in tow, 'Brutal Reality' is unrelenting industrial thrash of a pretty high quality. Veteran metal producer Caesar Kalinowski comes up with some compulsive computer drum loops and singer/guitarist Randy Kerkman gives all the edge and aggression to Caesar's denouncements of chemical abuse ("Chemikill"), lack of self control ("I Live In Flesh") and naturalism ("Believe In Miracles") all delivered in the style of Nine Inch Nails, Ministry et al. There's a 'secret' track tucked away at the end, a flick of the radio dial and a reading of Psalm 69.
