Yankee Brutal / Press

“Yankee Brutal, despite the silly name, is deadly serious in their debut release “The Everlasting Greed”. It is rare that one hears a debut of this focus, intensity, and quality from a band comprised of (former) members of unremarkable local acts. Sacramento, CA really seems to be a hotbed of new and excellent bands these days, and “Yankee Brutal” is a solid addition to the lineup.”

“Yankee Brutal is an American melodic hardcore band which has been active since 2011. Born from a fallen but not quite dead local punk scene, where they’ve flourished and grown out of different offensive bands. One of their main focus is their criticism of the American judicial and social systems, which is reflected in their songs and lyrics... I digged it...”

“ Hey guys, SurfOnAcid here! (Ex-SubhumanNature) Just wanted to introduce these guys, they're gonna release their debut on the 16th of November, awesome stuff! This was the only place i thought was right for this post, since i'm not having the album yet. :roll: Sounds a bit like Doesitmatter vocally, melodic hardcore/skatepunk-hybrid with metal influences.”

“If you fancy yourself a fan of bands like The Unseen, No Trigger or The Rabble you absolutely need to check out Sacramento’s Yankee Brutal. The band has just emerged on the melodic-hardcore / skate punk scene and will soon be releasing their debut full-length “The Everlasting Greed.” I’ve heard the entire album already and can say with authority that it kicks some serious ass, which is why I’m stoked to give you readers an exclusive first listen of one of its tunes.”

“I love it when a new band comes out of nowhere to release music that sounds better than most veterans in the scene... [Yankee Brutal] is going to make a lasting impression with melodic hardcore and skate punk aficionados. The band plays a fast paced, pissed off blend of punk rock with vocals that walk the fine line between melody and unrestrained aggression.”

“Yankee Brutal play an intense brand of melodic hardcore that sounds something like the pissed off love-child of Strung Out and No Trigger with the social consciousness of Bad Religion. Spitting venom with the best of them, Yankee Brutal bring punk rock’s fury back to the forefront, middle finger proudly displayed to the powers that be. The revolution won’t only be televised, it’ll have a soundtrack -- complete with breakneck drums, whoa-ohs, and a couple of mean sounding six-strings.”
