Butchery - _The Coming Plague_
by: Paul Schwarz (5 out of 5)
This was quite a surprise. Judging by the meat and potatoes name I was expecting meat and potatoes American death metal -- how wrong one's assumptions can be. Butchery are one of the more talented and original death metal demo bands I have encountered in the last twelve months. From their intro, taken, I think, from "The Devil's Advocate" and thus expertly delivered by Al Pacino, comes blasting a selection of twisted riffs, tortured vocals and manic percussion which reminds instantly, though favorably, of Gorguts circa _Erosion of Sanity_. The band are not a clone, however, and in any case the quality of their production and skill with which they play is of such a high standard at such a preliminary stage that I think it would be injust not to award them full marks. I await further material from this band with bated breath.
