Mother Fucking Butcher Babies

 

butcher-2017

I have been a fan of the ass kicking chicks in Butcher Babies  since before you could find a video to see the nipple tape era.  So now that I have see how their third album, “Lilith” has faired among the fans.  I am really confused by the way it has been received.  These are the iTunes Charts for “Lilith”:

  • Release date: 27 Oct 2017
  • Chart debut: #36 (27 Oct 2017)
  • Highest Position: #36 (27 Oct 2017)
  • Most recent chart position: #62 (28 Oct 2017)
  • Days on US Albums Chart: 3

‘Lilith’ has charted in the following countries:
United States, Canada and Australia.

  1. Personally I love the feeling of almost an Impaler “Meat Wagon” sound and feeling underneath.
  2. The title track of the album, I like the added element of the girls being able to sing a bit more.  Nice sound.
  3. I really enjoyed this one even if the video wasn’t so hot/ silly as fuck.  HTH however felt a bit differently.  Well here’s his exact words, “Butcher Babies featuring Gwen Stefani.  They had a cool thing going before that.  I probably wouldn’t have given them a chance, but you played them for me before I saw them and I really ended up liking some of the songs.  That other shit isn’t what I liked about them before.”  Check out “Headspin”:

Now that you heard that what do you think?

4. This one was typical for what we have come to expect from BB.

5. #iwokeuplikethis- I loved the title!

6. Cool sound….By the way, HTH has long since moved on and is now outside under the house digging a new floor for the storage area.  I think that means he didn’t get in to the album as it progressed.

7. I really like this one.  Nice used of double meanings.

8. This one has a total Deftones feeling as it opens.  I like the slight rapping mixed with the screaming.  Pretty good energy with a cool guitar tone, followed by an almost egyptian slowdown right back into the chaos to be “swimming with sharks.”

9. Look What We’ve Done…. I think I get what HTH was saying.  It’s is still done well but, it seems like they are almost pointing out with the lyrics here “We felt so beautiful as we were spiraling,” that, they have changed look at it.

10. PAMONA (shit happens)- There they are! Ladies and gents, It’s THE BUTCHER BABIES!

11. I feel like someone is a big Vito Bratta fan after the guitar playing I just heard in this one. You see if you can hear it!

So now that I have listed to “Lilith” with you and told you what I thought of each track, drop me a line and tell me what you thought of it!  Good or bad, this is a place for constructive criticism, not hate.  You can say you don’t like things in a constructive way.  There is no reason to hurt someone and bash their art.  After all, we are one big music loving family!!!
