A full-length from the burning depths.
If you've listened to quality metal for some time, you've most likely come across the work of Kris Verwimp, who's art fronts records from ENTHRONED, ABSU, VISIGOTH, and UADA to name a few. His artistic co-sign is essentially a guarantee that the riffs that lie beneath him are something you should have on your radar. Going by that logic, BÜTCHER's 666 Goats Carry My Chariot is a composition to be praised for merging the atmospheric aggression of black metal with the intensity of speed metal. The band's sophomore effort arrives January 31st via Osmose Productions.
Frontman R Hellshrieker comments of the forthcoming release:
"With a sublime mastering by Arthur Rizk, this album seems to be played straight from mount Olympus, and granted both grandeur and destructive power by the thunderbolts of Zeus himself. The album flows from pure speed 'n' heavy metal over extreme thrash, to a black/speed/heavy metal hybrid on side B. To accompany our mixture of metal, there was only ever going to be the epic artwork of none other than Kris Verwimp. To Bütcher, there is simply no better way to use that as the finishing touch for an Osmose release. We couldn’t have been more proud of the result. And the time for absolute vengeance, and our Second Prayer in service to the Godz of Steele, is nigh."
