MAD BUTCHER • Metal Lightning Attack LP

Saturday, July 18, 2009

Earthshaker Records 1985
Presumably named after DESTRUCTION's early ode to perverted purveyors of pulverized protein, Germany's MAD BUTCHER are Speed Metal simpletons who, in spite of their name, share little in common with Germany's finest. Instead, MAD BUTCHER are more akin to fellow NRW meatheads EXPECT NO MERCY in their no frills high-speed Heavy Metal attack that verges on Thrash, but falls just short of the requisite heaviness, aggression, and sheer sonic violence. Having said all that, Metal Lightning Attack is a likeable lighthearted romp through the well tread paths of second rate German Metal, and though I'm sure you've heard it a million times before, it's still fun as Hell.

Thanks for post. Just one minor correction. This is the real Mad Butcher. Destruction took the name from this band. They have been with them on tour in 1983, and they "lend" the name from Mad Butcher (the band)

That's a scenario I hadn't considered, and it's completely plausible. Thanks for the correction.

This band Mad Butcher is ok... I NEVER knew that fact before, and assumed they were a trendy crappy band a long time ago becuase of the name...
IF we only had the internet in the 1980s!

yup
they got their name ripped by Destruction as well as the whole image they had, See their album cover for Metal Meat which has a butcher on it which looks EXTREMELY similar to Mad Butcher EP by Destruction

Yeah you're right... those covers are VERY similar, but according to the Metal Archives they were released the same year. Who knows which came first.
