BAND MAD BUTCHER
ALBUM METAL MEAT
LABEL Dying Victims Productions
OUT Dec 17th, 2021
RELICS FROM THE CRYPT, sub-label of DYING VICTIMS PRODUCTIONS, will reissue on Dec 17th, 2021MAD BUTCHER’s cult-classic second album, Metal Meat, on vinyl LP format.
While it would seem that they were inspired by Destruction, MAD BUTCHER predated Destruction by a number of years, and began even earlier than Teutonic metal mainstays Accept, Steeler, Grave Digger, and Living Death., with influences from NWOBHM and early US metal scene.
Originally released on Metal Enterprises in 1987, Metal Meat is both an intensification of that rough-around-the-edges but addictingly spirited debut and a smoother, more-finessed version of it.
And while MAD BUTCHER would disband in 1990, after two officially released albums and a third posthumously released in 2020, their legendry among the true-metal faithful was forever etched with Lightning Metal Attack – and further etched into the annals of CULT with its inadvertently strange follow-up.
