July 9 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Infectious energy. Irresponsible grooves. Infinitely heavy. The signature sound of Brotality smashes the glory days of thrash metal together with modern melodies, progressive grooves, and bouncing riffs, culminating in a refreshingly energetic and compelling sound. This “expertly crafted” (For The Rock) sound is overwhelmingly present in Brotality’s latest work, It Feeds. It Feeds consists of 5 brand new songs which bring the listener to euphoric heights with larger than life melodies, then juxtapose those triumphs with slamming rhythmic and groove-worshiping sections that leave the listener reeling.

Catch Brotality with Self Inflicted and Nineteenth Paradise on Tuesday, July 9 at 8PM. FREE SHOW!

The guys in Brotality – brothers Bryce Maopolski (guitar/vocals) and Reece Maopolski (bass/vocals) along with John Haring (drums) – have created a band that unapologetically delivers a signature blend of time-tested riffage, soaring melodies, and sections of pure, punishing musical destruction. With crushing riffs, muscular vocals, and “brilliant musical prowess” (Kingdom Core) in abundance, Brotality has created “their own unique and powerful vision” (Rock N Load) worthy of carrying forward the Heavy Metal moniker. They cite Mastodon and Megadeth as influences, and it won’t take long for anyone who listens to their award-winning music to feel their undeniable old-school sensibilities, wrapped in youthful energy and modern brutality.

The Maopolski brothers started Brotality in 2016. In a few short years, Brotality has released two EP’s, multiple singles, and two full length albums. Their debut full length, “Worldwide Desolation”, has received countless rave reviews and landed on several “Best Albums of 2021” lists. Their sophomore album, “The Woods Will End You” won Reader’s Choice Album of the Year on Metal Epidemic, Top 7 Thrash Albums on Scream Blast Repeat and spots on many other Top Albums of 2022 lists along with Bryce being honored with a spot on their Best Guitarists of 2022 list. Brotality was also nominated for Artist Of The Year at the 2023 Steamtown Music Awards, Best Metal Band at the 2021, 2022, and 2023 Steamtown Music Awards, and Best Metal Band 2021 and 2022 for the Central PA Music Hall of Fame Awards. Their journey has given them opportunities to play well-known venues such as Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (where they immediately preceded Deep Purple and Judas Priest), The Bitter End NYC, Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia, several multi-day festivals such as a co-headlining slot at Exodo Fest in Tlaxcala, Mexico, Creation Fest, Uprise Fest, and Stage West in Scranton, PA where they won the 570 Music Show’s Best Metal Band award for 2019. Brotality has had several singles hit the Loud charts, with “Foxhole” making it to #2, “Salting The Wound” #5, and “Prisoners Of The Abyss” debuting in the top 25.

An ambitious 2023 schedule saw the band playing regionally around the northeast U.S. weekly, as well as embarking on an expansive and independently booked seven-week national summer tour, capitalizing on their 2022 summer tour which spanned the United States over 6 weeks. In April of 2023 they co-headlined Exodo Fest in Tlaxcala, Mexico- a festival that has previously seen headliners such as P.O.D., Norma Jean, and Haste The Day. With each and every release, Brotality further refines their craft and continues to deliver what can only come from this group.
