Stereogum: Album of the Week

"Brutus deliver the anthemic new song “Django”" - Consequence of Sound

"BRUTUS: MEET THE BELGIAN SINGER-DRUMMER TAKING POST-HARDCORE BY STORM. Stefanie Mannaerts traces path from immersive musical childhood to trio's genre-defying new album 'Nest'" - Revolver

Brutus are a month away from the release of a masterpiece. We are here just in time to witness something amazing.” – Stereogum

“it's almost impossible for singer-drummer Stefanie Mannaerts not to steal the show: a powerhouse performer, her octopus-limbed, black-metal–inflected percussion and wide-ranging vocals, alternately screamy and dreamy, drive Brutus' dynamic, emotionally charged sound” - Revolver

“It’s part ethereal wave, part post rock, part D-beat, and drummer/singer Stefanie Mannaerts’ truly soaring vocals take the genre-defying song to another level.” – Brooklyn Vegan

“explosive hardcore wrapped in gorgeous dream pop” – Treble

Brutus wages A beautiful ‘War’ of hardcore and dark, dreamy post-punk" – Metal Injection

Mannaerts is a fucking force of a nature. Her voice is richly textured, almost acrobatic, expressing emotion via melody with Cobain-ian rawness and force. At some points, I hear shades of Björk; at others, hues of Catatonia’s Cerys Matthews. These comparisons are meant to be read as high praise, but they can’t begin to convey Mannaerts’ power. And somehow, her drumming is every bit as intense and accomplished. She’s a basher in the style of Grohl or Bonham, but like those drummers, she plays with great finesse, too.” – Stereogum
