Deevad I had no idea until this evening I could like the mix of metal guitar, chip sounds and more. Very cool.

composerKJC It's like a mix of silly pop, 8-bit video game music, and progressive metal. Progressive music the way it should be: Adventurous and mixing styles. Favorite track: Outage.

about

Alpha Brutal Paris, France

Alpha Brutal is a French band from the suburbs of Paris. Initially a DIY one man band, the line-up is now complete. Inspired by many different styles, it eventually adopted a Nerd Metal and Nintendocore approach. Imagine Devin Townsend’s complexity mixed with tidbits of the Pixies’ catchy pop and some assumed chiptunes inclusions: that is the sound of Alpha Brutal. ... more

Track Name: Upswing
Ooooooooooh
Ooooooooooh

Warmth of the sun
Is spreading all over me
The bees I shunned, they gather gold honey just to heal my wounds
Vivid stream
My thoughts all come so serene
They will carry me to a dawn, of my own

No shame
No regret
No anxiety
We will overcome all adversity

Feeling anew
Caressing the world again
Pleasures I knew
The wonders and thrills that you give to me
Fiery wings are piercing right through my skin
We'll fly us to another day, far away

No shame
No regret
No anxiety
We will overcome all adversity

Is this the wind
The storm comes upon us
Black waves, they come to swallow us
Too late
Can't run

Don't stare the void
You'll fall off the way
Stops are to avoid
Keep moving ahead

(Black waves) Jump over the gaps
You'll keep in the way (they'll swallow us)
That's just a few traps
You won't have to sway (Soon I'll drawn)
Don't stare the void
You'll fall off the way (I've gone astray)

Stops are to avoid
Careful not to sway

Keep moving ahead
Track Name: Outage
Drop your meal
Forget the real
Conceal the bill
The time that spill
And pause the race of your day
Break the wheel
And don’t stand still
Under the heel
Of Moray eels
Come out and join us to play

Quit the drill
Eclipse the sill
Take of the peel
Embrace the chill
Prepare for a queer holiday
No more spiel
Take a refill
Of poping zeal
Unfreeze ideals
Cause now you anchor away

Jelly deers and rosy whales are bathing in the glow of the midnight suns
Singing gears and moving scales are having tea at dawn seeking new puns

Now we all go mad

Falling away, from our reality

Pave your tracks
With honey wax
Re-burst your past
In rainbow stacks
Taste all the sounds
Entangle bounds
Sample new grounds
Getting astound

Sit on the edge
Fasten your belt
No more exit
You made the bet
Sit on the edge
Fasten your belt
Ready to drift

Drift away

Sit on the edge
Fasten your belt
No more exit
You made the bet
Sit on the edge
Fasten your belt
Ready to drift

Now we all go mad

Falling away
From our reality
Track Name: Protection
Here in the dark of my lids, there is no enemy
No cruel remark, no mistake to put the blame on me

I'll never ever gonna stare the light
Far too bright

I walked for years and I've seen all that a fox can see
Spiders and bears, they came with a grin, hurting me within

I'll never ever gonna stare the light
Shade's alright

I already filled my eyes, for centuries
Why don't you just leave me, please
I already had my trials, and treacheries
Why don't you just leave me, please
I already filled my eyes, for centuries
Why don't you just leave me, please
I already had my trials, and treacheries
Why don't you just let me be, please

Raise your eyes
Turn around
Down with bounds
Just arise
