Combining all of these elements, Brutal Realty, Inc. also features Sarah Burns from HBO’s Barry and a fantastic and brutal musical score composed by Sanford Parker (Buried At Sea, Corrections House, Mirrors For Psychic Warfare), Dallas Thomas (Pelican), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza, Corrections House, Sick Gazelle), and Charlie Fell (Lord Mantis, Cobalt). You can see and hear why the project has won awards and respect.
