Butcher Babies have released yet another great album, Take It Like A Man! While keeping their trademark energy, they expressed a message of finding inner strength through thrash metal music.
Vocalist, Carla Harvey was quoted saying the following about the album, "We wanted to go back to our thrash roots, and 90% of the album reflects that." And co-vocalist, Heidi Shepherd added, "We wanted to bring back metal and aggression on the radio... We kind of merged the two worlds."
The merging worked out extremely well, especially in the guitar work and over all sound. Tracks like "Igniter" and "Thrown Away" really stood out, but for completely different reasons.
"Thrown Away", is the ballad on the album, and "Igniter" just has killer riffs and reminds you why Butcher Babies is something unique.
The album was released on August 21, 2015 and can be purchased now iTunes! And you can catch Butcher Babies on tour now with GWAR until September 18. After that, you can catch them at festivals like the Slang Metal Fest VII, Louder Than Life, and Rock Allegiance. For more information, please visit the Butcher Babies website.
