Brutal are a Danish and Dutch demo and cracking group, formed in august 1990
by TCH and Slash. They were soon joined by the swapper Base/Zyrox and Raise
and Bleze from Shape. Wildstyle/Paramount joined briefly but was then
kicked. Baze, Raise and Bleze then joined Miracle, but after a brief period
they all returned.
1993 - The group went into cooperation with Dunex around february. RCS
returned to the scene in early 93. Unfortunately the group was declared dead
in august. TCH (code crack gfx editor, 08/90-), RCS, Tarasque, Technoir and
Scenk all left to build a new group called Inbread. "Brutal Recall" will
from now on be released by them.
Brutal Recall #1 (1991, 13.04, Multifile Diskmag).
code: TCH, gfx: TCH, music: Boogaloo/Light (intro), Metal/Bonzai (mag).
review: This mag seems to be almost entirely TCH's effort, what with him
being the coder, graphician (good too!) and editor. But it's actually far
from bad, more like a promising beginning. There's not a lot to read yet,
most articles seem to be more concerned with explaining what they WILL BE.
The graphics and code are more than functional, and give a good overall
feeling. I didn't like the control method much, but I guess that's more
down to personal preference. It works. [glenn]

review: This invitation intro opens with a BRUTAL intro that looks like it
was just taken from one of their cracks =) If features two BRUTAL logos,
one on top and one in the bottom, and two jumping scrollers inbetween.
Hardly cutting edge stuff. No graphics or music is credited. We press
space, and is taken to equally unimpressive main invitation part. This one
has another BRUTAL logo in the bottom of the screen, with the rest being
taken up by the invitation text. This can be scrolled up and down using
the joystick. And that's about it really =) [glenn]
