The last one, triggered when the enemy notices you (as you may have guessed from the filename!), is fantastic because it sounds like the Brute itself is scared by your encounter, as if you're a confusing threat he just wants to get rid of, which makes him even more frightening. Kinda like Leatherface in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in that respect.
Incidentally, this audio clip pretty much ruined my life:

The audio engineers who worked on this game are geniuses.
I too agree. Just listening to the Brute even when he's not chasing me gives me the goosebumps. After looking at Grunt a little more (since he appeared the most) I kinda got over the face. Plus Brute's knife hand freaks me out!
