When Butcher Babies unleashed on Planet Metal Monsters Ball on July 11th, 2015. This song has  the best GROOVE of the year, and whips me into a total frenzy, where I just become a insane metal maniac fantic, I mean I thrash and rage, to this song, whips me into a frenzy everytime.  Besides the best Groove Metal album of 2015, the Butcher Babies have the BEST GROOVE METAL video of the year, in “Monsters Ball” I have watched this video, a few thousand times. And it just rules, and is the epitome of bad ass and KICK*ASS

Those of us who are Butcher Baby insane metal fanatic true fan knows the works to this song inside out and upside down.

(Heidi)- Ladies and Gentlemen, children of all ages
Step right up and get your tickets to the greatest show on earth
Where you’ll witness death defying feats and acts of whisky Guzzling debauchery
I wanna see you

So get the fuck up!

(Carla)
It’s high noon when you step into the pit
It’s a monster’s ball and their digging a ditch
For the sunburnt the weary, the ones who won’t last
In this cyclone of flesh with this cathartic mix

(Heidi)
When the broken limbs are leading the match
It’s the ring masters itch we’re amassed to scratch
With the crack of the whip the carnies rush in to devour
The beast that beats on drums of flesh

(Carla)
Blistered embattled
You fall to submission
To complete the mission
You rally and rise
2-3-4

(Heidi)
Slack-jawed and entranced your torched by the sun
You’ve caught the fever
The day’s just begun to burn. Ya!

[Chorus]
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop
This monster’s ball
Can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop
This monster’s ball

[Mid intro- Heidi]
Hey you there in the neo-thrash prog math whatever metal shirt
And cut off jeans trying to sneak away don’t leave yet
The best part of the show is just about to begin
It’s not over till the pretty ladies scream!

So get the fuck up!

(Carla)
Brothers in arms we shake our devil sticks
Together as we climb walls of jagged bones together
As you float away on a bed a callused hands
With the crest in sight now it’s time to go

(Heidi)
Over the edge, you take a decadent fall
Behind the velvet rope you join the men on stilts
The juggler winks and throws you a ball
Before you know it you’re part of it all

[Chorus]
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop
This monster’s ball
Can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop
This monster’s ball

[Bridge]

Ladies and Gentlemen
Step right up and get your tickets
To the greatest show on earth

We’ve never felt this free
When I’m stepping blindly
Cause we’ve never been so free
My Acrobatic Army

Ladies and Gentlemen

[Chorus]
Can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop
Can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop

Can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop

Can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop

[Chorus]
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop
This monster’s ball
Can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop moving
No you can’t stop
This monster’s ball

On August 21st, 2015 @ 10AM I was the first on in my area, @ WESTLAND BEST BUY to get the new Butcher Babies “Take It Like A Man”. And I Said to the clerk “The Butcher Babies Sent Me”….and he asked what is the name of the album. “Take It Like A Man”…he thought I was pulling his chain, ha ha the look on that dudes face, not a hard rock / heavy metal guy. They were selling them for $7.99 to help create a buzzzz on this thrash/groove/ nu-metal masters, and since August 21st, 2015 I have around 40 hours of listening to this CD, I have it in “repeat all mode”. I am going to do a track by track record review of this metallic monster of a album, so I want to get around 21 days of analyzing this album. Since there is a lot of excellent songwriting on this album,

 

 

 

I really love a lot of the song-writing dynamics and vocalization harmony and melody as well as all out total fucking metal fuckiing metal mayhem. There are a lot of beautiful vocals passages, but when the band is in Major Rager MODE, you have no choice to get whipped up into a frenzy. I am not the biggest of Groove Metal or NuMetal fans on the planet, but since this style has been around since 1988, with Metallica and Pantera with “And Justice For All” for the former and “Power Metal” for Pantera. Lets not forget the successor albums for these groups. Metallica “Metallica” awesome hard rock/ heavy metal with perfect grooves. And Pantera “Cowboys From Hell” Groove Metal extra-ordinary. Pantera “Cowboys From Hell”and Pantera “Vulgar Display of Power Metal” saved the genre METAL because so many bands were selling out at alarming rate in heavy metal from 1980-1991, bands sell-out all the time, and for me it is not the crime of the century or whatever. I will support any band until they start releasing music outside of the on target taste of KICK*ASS*METAL, which is bad ass and KICK*ASS music. Groove Metal and the modern metal sound sounds awesome on a lot of Gothic Metal and Avant-Garde Metal releases I own, and a lot of these albums are on my top 100 albums of all-time list. So I do support tons of melodic hard rock, traditional metal, and extreme metal bands. I try to keep a gothic/ symphonic gothic metal slant to the coverage @ KICK*ASS*METAL, but when a band is this the real deal and this authentic. I always take notice. And while I write this review as new Baby Butcher and True Believer. The band does have a either you love this band, or you do not listen to this kind of thrash/groove/numetal metallic attack. I love when bands have a 50/50 love / hate relationship with the metal community which they are a member of, and I hope they get bigger each and every year. Because you know the music will not be so “universal” that everyone “likes it”. I always never liked that approach because the music is not exciting and the bands always forget to incorporate magic in the song-writing and always. Leave out the evocation, either by blowing your mind or sending chills up and down your spine. And for this the Butcher Babies are armed with nothing but there own artistic vision and the album is a METALLIC FUCKING NUCLEAR BOMB, that will rip your face-off.

THIS ALBUM FUCKING RULES
