1.
Of or relating to the heaviest of death metal. Many people abuse the term and use it for reference to emo/scene grindcore bands. Most often, bands with technicality aren't really brutal due to an emphasis on talent and complicated riffs/structuring rather then heavyness, eg. Necrophagist.
Devourment, Inveracity, Sanatorium, Cephalotripsy, Wormed, Brodequin, Liturgy, Carnal, Digested Flesh, Viscera Trail, Internal Suffering, Artery Eruption, Disgorge(U.S variant more so, the mexican version leaning toward "sick" goregrind)

-There truly is no such thing a "brutal" grindcore, however the closest thing to grindcore brutality would most likely be Last Days of Humanity due to the agressive super heavy goregrind approach. The main limiting factor of grindcore preventing its brutality would be the length of the song coupled with guitar riffs with more of an emphasis on a style of agressive thrash metal than "slamming" death metal.

The American Slang word for something that is very metal.
Taken by other scenes such as "Hardcore", and "Scene", it was originally used my Metalheads, and should stay that way.

An Army sluggo who always gives 100% and then some at all brutal Army tasks, whatever they may be. Can be found at a bar with dog tags out over an Affliction shirt and a fresh pair of Altamas. Often seen at the airport wearing an ACU assualt pack demanding an upgrade to first class. Typically yells "zero" after every overhead arm clap to demonstrate elite fitness.
