Welcome to the Panopticon

by Brutal Juice

Roaring, Thrashing and seething with a newly focused rage, unleashing a fusillade against oppression, a new metal mythology, and a brain-searing blast of Electroshock-rock therapy straight into your cortex. Recorded by Grammy winner John Congleton (St Vincent, Swans, Baroness) This blends Classic Old-School Metal, Gothic Psychedelia, and Floyd-tinged Southern Boogie Rock with their signature Post-Punk Angular Assault. This Sprawling Concept album is some of their finest work to date.

Album Notes
Brutal Juice rose from the primordial sludge of post-punk, grunge and indie psychedelia of the 90's and toured incessantly with bands like Gwar, Neurousis, Toadies, the Meatmen, and countless other punk/metal/thrash bands in the U.S. and Europe. Born in Dallas and raised in the gonzo college town counterculture of Denton, TX, Brutal Juice started out as an acid-fueled excuse to turn amps to 11 and play with feedback loops during all-night backyard parties or in pizza parlours and art galleries turned pop-up music venues.  
They didn't even have "a sound" at that point; dabbling in funk, metal, ambient noise, folk, punk--they neither made nor observed any rules.
They eventually became a mainstay at Denton's annual Fry Street Fair, cutting their teeth in front of the vast hedonistic hordes that had attended the legendary festival since the 70s-- a last vestige of the once-proud Texas Hippie scene. Folk art, body hair, LSD, and a mind-blowing variety of original music from area bands, many containing alums and dropouts from UNT's world-famous jazz school, left a permanent mark on the band's sound, their philosophy and their politics.

Brutal Juice went on to tour constantly in the US and Europe, and recorded for Jello Biafra's Alternative Tentacles, and eventually Major Label Interscope Records, releasing their critically acclaimed "Mutilation Makes Identification Difficult", recorded at Willie Nelson's Arlen Studios in Austin TX, and mixed by Sylvia Massey (Tool).
They toured constantly in the U.S. and Europe before breaking up briefly in the late 90s.  

Now, after a decade in the wilderness, Brutal Juice returns with their most powerful and complex album to date.
Their classic sound has evolved: more metallic, melodic, and lyrically refined, yet somehow greasier and sludgier, this record is more conceptually ambitious than earlier work.
​Welcome To The Panopticon simultaneously weaves and destroys alternate histories and paranoid mythologies, where the band unmasks both itself and the unseen and mostly nefarious forces at work behind our "reality".
