Tierra Brutal is an instrumental rock band made up of three very different gentlemen with a mutual interest for sonic inquiry. Disparate backgrounds and musical tastes crystallize into a unique amalgamation of punk, psychedelic, ambient, improv, post-whatever... and becomes frozen into a noisy fudgesicle of sound.
- Neal Williams (drumsicle) played in numerous bands before Tierra Brutal, opening up for the likes of Don Caballero, Mono, Secret Machines and more. Tierra Brutal is his most rocking endeavor to date.
- Marshall Marrotte (bassicle) has played in lots of bands you have never heard of (Never?, Monument Valley, Desk Pussy, Zepubicle...) and that's just fine with him. As the elder statesman of the band he can confidently pronounce that "Tierra Brutal makes a damn fine racket."
- Peter Burghardt (guitarsicle) has been making music all over America. When just a teenager his highschool band embedded itself in the Minneapolis music scene, opening for bands such as The Hidden Chord and Sickbay. Later he moved to Chicago where he became an active participant in the Windy City’s experimental rock scene. Currently he lives in Atlanta where keeps it real by shredding with his band mates in Tierra Brutal.
No is made up of Glenn, Jeff & Vonda--three people who have played and toured together for quite some time in different noise rock incarnations in the Southeastern music scene. Miminal post-noise, post-whatever. Just listen.
