TERRIOR BUTE: Realm Dwellers: CD

Terrior Bute is a three-piece band from Milwaukee and their sound is comprised of yelling party vocals, keyboards and drums. It seems like their sound is reminiscent of the defunct Nebraska screamo/punk/post-hardcore band, Bright Calm Blue, minus guitars. The disc has eleven songs in twenty-six minutes and it does a good job of getting its point across in that time. The first and last tracks are filler but otherwise this is the musical equivalent of an exclamation point. I say that with the stipulation that I have a feeling that Terrior Bute is one of those bands that is better live than they are on their recordings. I can only hope their live show matches the energy they seem to display on the album.
