Top 100 Heavy Metal Albums of 2015





I never thought I would ever need a Groove Metal/NuMetal Category for the ALBUM OF THE YEAR.  But since this album is so FUCKING BAD*ASS & KICK*ASS, it needs to be mentioned in the upper echelon of the best of the best in true metal, as I understand the term. What the mainstream metal calls extreme metal. This is the KICK*ASS*METAL

The Butcher Babies “Take It Like A Man” is the best Groove Metal/ NuMetal album of 2015, since the Genre is only 0nly 25 years old, and this is the album of the year, this is a top 25 Groove Metal / NuMetal album of all-time, and if I did a top 10 Groove Metal albums of all-time, this would easily be a TOP 10 GROOVE METAL ALBUM OF ALL-TIME, easy without a doubt.

Butcher Babies * Monsters Ball IS ONE OF THE GREATEST HEAVY METAL VIDEOS OF ALL-TIME. and has THE BEST GROOVE METAL RIFF of all of 2015, if your a fan of Pantera, Slipknot, Groove Metal -era Metallica 1988-1991, Groove Metal-era Sepultura 1991-1995 like I am. Then you KNOW The Butcher Babies are one of the GREATEST Heavier Heavy Metal bands of all-time in the Groove Metal/ NuMetal category.


The Butcher Babies, is one of those WORLD-CLASS HEAVY METAL bands, it should be impossible to open up a HEAVY METAL publication and not see a Interview, Write-Up or ALBUM REVIEW, or all 3 on The Los Angeles, California IMMORTALS OF METAL.!!

The Butcher Babies has one of the most original Vocalist Configurations in all of HEAVY METAL, and what they are doing in that regard is the FUTURE OF HEAVY METAL

For some strange and bizarre reason Butcher Babies has no BIO over at the so-called “Metal Archives”


Here is a BIO COURTESY of the bands official facebook presence

Taken at face value, GOLIATH is the monstrous debut from one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the Los Angeles metal scene since System Of A Down turned the city on end nearly twenty years ago. But scratch beneath the surface and the haunting story behind GOLIATH blurs in and out of horrific focus, examining the ruins of an American culture obsessed with apocalyptic carnage. GOLIATH was born in the bleak wasteland where the more savage your act, the more celebrated you become – and in a world where the miserable feel obliged to retaliate, the BUTCHER BABIES shatter the dementia with molten fury and unbridled sonic bliss.

Hailing from the City Of Angels, the BUTCHER BABIES offer redemption from the overplayed underground, exorcising demons with a visceral sound matched only in scope by their explosive stage show. Frontwomen Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd, guitarist Henry Flury [Amen], bassist Jason Klein [Azdachao] and drummer Chris Warner [Scars of Tomorrow] juxtapose brutal, aggressive riffs with beautiful melodies that wail with anguish and hope for redemption.

The band signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records in December 2012, and a month later hit the road with Marilyn Manson on what proved to be one of the new year’s most talked about tours. The run was a return to form for Manson and a call to arms for the BUTCHER BABIES, who honed their razor-sharp riffs and soul-searing vocals in front of live audiences as a source of manic pre-production. Only days after wrapping the tour in the City Of Sin, the band was in an L.A. studio with producer Josh Wilbur [Gojira, Lamb Of God, Hatebreed] recording the debut album that has the metal community buzzing.

The eleven-track opus chronicles the story of the forsaken as they transform into GOLIATH – monsters that society has built, and monsters that turn to society for retribution. Suddenly opening track “I Smell A Massacre” is more than just shock rock, casting a cautionary tale to anyone in screaming distance. And once it sinks in that GOLIATH is more than just a figment of our imagination, the rest of the album becomes all the more real.

“Magnolia Blvd” is about the demons that coexist around us all, while “Grim Sleeper” is unsettling and haunting, an angelic intro quickly pulverized by a repressed memory so real we feel the victim’s cries. “In Denial” couples blood-curdling angst with more of the melodies that showcase the BUTCHER BABIES unique, two-frontwoman lineup at its most profound – singing and screaming trading hope and rage like caged souls fighting for freedom. “Give Me Reason” bounces hard and fast with hell-bent fury, “The Mirror Never Lies” assaults our reflection with an ominous and catchy chorus, and “The Deathsurround” showcases the band at perhaps its most intense with a song as heavy and brutal as the title suggests.

BUTCHER BABIES celebrate the July 9 release of GOLIATH as part of the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, where they are a mainstay on the Jagermeister stage and spend the summer alongside heavyweights including Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Machine Head, Mastodon and Amon Amarth.

With an unrelenting delivery and uncompromising intent to melt faces, GOLIATH is more than just a record – it is the growing enemy that angers, drives and inspires the BUTCHER BABIES. GOLIATH is our common enemy, and BUTCHER BABIES have arrived to deliver the soundtrack that will lead us into battle…
