    Butcher Babies "Mr. Slowdeath" Song Review — 4 out of 5 stars - Exclusive by ARTISTdirect.com editor in chief Rick Florino...

    There's just nothing like a good heavy metal beatdown.

    That's exactly what Los Angeles's sharpest and sexiest outfit, Butcher Babies, dole in spades out on their new single "Mr. Slowdeath". Forging hyper-speed metallic riffing by Henry Flury, Chrissy Warner's warped drumming, and Jason Klein's deadly bass, the track sounds like it could come off the rails at any moment—in the best way possible, of course.

    The two frontwomen Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey steer the ship deftly oscillating like a guillotine between gnashing screams and soothingly murderous clean vocals. There's an intangible chemistry between them which is instantly irresistible. It's a yin and yang of sex, violence, and raw metal ecstasy wrapped into one all-encompassing aural assault.

    There's nothing better. Get ready for them to kill everything in their path and rise to the top covered in blood. You'll be beaten, bruised, battered, and begging for more. This is everything heavy metal should be.
