Brutal Deluxe quickly gained recognition for taking to the stage barefooted, bedecked in their tribalistic warpaint and pounding their audience into submission with their dynamic live performance. They were signed in 1999 to Dreamcatcher Records and released their debut album Divine Head in early 2000. It received wide critical acclaim and the band was hailed as a great British hope. The band toured in 2000 with Raging Speedhorn, Kill II This and Napalm Death.
The band started 2001 with a headline tour through the UK, culminating in a filmed live show for MTV2 in London. Just prior to this show the band suffered a serious blow when all their equipment was stolen. This brought to a head strained relationships in the band, and the end result was the departure of bassist Toad.
A replacement was soon found and the band managed to move forward with the help of Richmo custom drums. They performed to 12,000 people at the Bulldog Bash with The Wildhearts and Feeder and continued to tour through 2001. The band then recorded their second album in 2002 entitled Mistah Kurtz...He Dead.
In 2006 the band parted ways with their label Dreamcatcher and began recording new demos in their studio in South London.
In 2007 the band showcased some new material on an EP and began searching for another new bass player. "Guary MacSeanlaoic." joined on bass and they signed to Chimerical Records on 29th January, 2009. Between June and December 2009 the Slagfreak Mobile recording Studio was used to record the bulk of the songs for the new album at the remote Clymping Mill (Clymping Gap) on the English Southcoast.
