BUTCHER - Return To Nothingness - LP
What a great fucking record!! If you are familiar with their debut "Holding Back the Night" LP you have some idea what to expect here.
For those who have not heard the band, expect some powerful, genre expanding hardcore punk from a group with members in Florida, Texas, and Japan.
The band is fronted by Jack Control, from the same WORLD BURNS TO DEATH and SEVERED HEAD OF STATE. Drummings are performed by Jon Weisberg from ASSHOLEPARADE, LIFECHAIN, RELIGIOUS AS FUCK, STARVATION and WORLDS, and on guitar are Adler Moore (AGHAST, LIFECHAIN, HERETIC) and Souichi Hisatake (GUDON, FORWARD).
This second record takes the sound they crafted on the first LP and ramps up the power, tempo, and raw punk aggression. This record is extremely good: ten tracks of pure fucking raw/thrashing hardcore punk in the vein of this insane name droping list I just wrote. What a great tribute to POISON IDEA or G.I.S.M.!
Available in the States from Desolate Records and on CD in Japan from Break the Records.
