"Lilith" is the third album by the American heavy metal band Butcher Babies. It was released on October 27, 2017 through Century Media Records.
The five piece act, fronted by vocalists Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd, has a very young career but already boasts a notorious reputation for their punk-esque attitude and blitzing energy on stage, and essentially, not being a favored band amongst the ‘honorable’ elitists of the scene. ‘Lilith’ is just another statement made by the band for everybody, and it is the boldest one made.
‘Korova’ is one such example off the album, reeking of face scrunching grooves played flawlessly. ‘Oceana’ is another where grooves really don’t matter and it straight away puts you into autopilot wind milling, while ‘#iwokeuplikethis’ (as mentioned above, the shits aren’t really given) ruthlessly delivers a Slayer approved skank beat. The vocals of the album however stick to its roots in a few tracks and divert at the same time. The title track of the album shows off how dynamic Carla and Heidi are alongside each other, and other songs distinctly maintain growls from each vocalist which is shown in ‘Burn the Straw Man’, with Heidi on the mic spitting absolutely beastly vocals. ‘Underground and Overrated’ is the last track off the record and I don’t think anybody would be physically capable of restraining themselves from moving in any manner whatsoever.
‘Lilith’ is a brutally fast paced album by a band that is just as fast paced and brutal in delivering it. It bursts of extreme metal, groove, thrash and punk rock at the same time and blends all the genres well without any hesitation.
