I still love the first 2 full lengths.
And how can you not love Dan Lilker?

A Message From Dan Lilker

I regret to inform Brutal Truth fans that as of October 18th, 2014, I will be retiring from being a full time recording and touring musician. That date is my 50th birthday, so I chose it symbolically as a significant milestone to make such a weighty decision. As a lot of you know, I've been an active member of the metal scene since the early 80s with the thrash metal bands I've been in before the formation of Brutal Truth in 1990, and I'm simply just tired of the rigors of touring mostly. Unlike some of my peers from the 80's who went on to sell millions of records I have always been drawn to extreme underground metal. I don't care about staying in 5 star hotels and having a big cushy tour bus but I am getting tired of squeezing into a van for 8 hours after all these years on the road. I have always played what I believe in and that is been priority #1, but the time has come to have a little bit more stability in my life.

Brutal Truth will still be active on the touring front until mid-October and will aim to do as much as we can in the next 9 months or so. After that, I will still have creative output with my 2 local bands in Rochester NY, Nokturnal Hellstorm and Blurring and do the occasional project tour, but yes, as of mid-October, Brutal Truth will no longer exist. I do realize that will be an extreme disappointment to all the grind freaks out there that have supported this band so rabidly all these years, and your enthusiasm will always have a special place in my heart, but I've made my decision, and I hope everyone can respect that.

Please note that messages sent to the Brutal Truth facebook will not be answered as I do not have my own personal facebook page therefore I do not have access.

Thanks,
Dan Lilker

Need To Control & Goodbye Cruel World will always be my faves, great band. Too polished on the last two full-lengths though... too bad I never got to see them live. Hail Kevin Sharp.

I saw them on the Animal Kingdom tour. Probably one of the best live bands I've ever seen. So intense, tight as fuck and just overall mindblowing. The early shit is still classic.

I haven're really paid attention to their output in the last 10-15 years, but the split LP with Bastard Noise was totally killer. I hope he makes more noise of that ilk, I actually liked their side more than Bastard Noise.

I really want to own an lp version of ECDER someday. That's white whale record shit....

I might have the 2010 DLP re-issue for sale if you're interested.

One of my favorite bands in high school. What a shame. Last time I saw them at Saint Vitus there were nothing but hipsters and their shitty bands watching with their arms crossed. Still put on a killer show.

Fair play to him. Huge influence on me when I was learning bass as a kid.

RIP BT!!

Saw them live when they reunited, was great!

buuut, don't give a shit about new albums really.

I'd be into more Nuclear Assault tours.

Yeah, I meant hats off to Lilker for retiring - an outstanding and influential metal musician that he is - but I couldn't care less about BT breaking up. Post-reunion material has been pointless.

One of the best Lilker moments:
