There have been a lot more quality releases within the brutal genre in the past year or so. Maybe not as many as other genres but a lot when you consider the relatively small number of brutal bands there are. So, being that it's my favorite region of metal, and that the fanbase has expanded exponentially, I'd like to make a short list of the better releases (and a few soon to be released) to highlight some of the golden moments within a somewhat unappreciated genre.
Also note that; these are in no particular "best to worst" order. Just listed at random for anyone who may have missed a new release or someone who wants to get into the genre by beginning with some of the recent best.
Oh, and... My spelling for some of these releases might not be right so, if you would like to point out where please do.

Portal - Vexovoid (I wouldn't necessarily consider this "brutal death metal" but they certainly deliver a fashion of brutality in their own way)|
