Butchery was an obscure little band from the backwater hick country known as Alabama, USA. Surprisingly enough, despite being in such a non-metal location, they managed to churn out a few very well-produced recordings. Here is their first demo, entitled "Necropsy Profane". Don't mind Metal Archives, they've got it backwards, listing this as their second demo. I mean, come on, how do you fuck that up? Take a wild guess as to what their second demo is called. Yeah, Demo II. I swear, bunch of monkeys... but I digress.

On this demo, we have some heavy, brutal and fairly underdeveloped Death Metal. Every single one of the five songs are about 2 minutes long each, leaving you with some fast, pummeling, hard-hitting music in very short bursts. Probably for the better, though, seeing as their style is more suited towards brutal DM or grindcore. They certainly felt that way, considering their gory lyrical content. Usually very fast-paced with some killer double bass, this demo does slow down a bit here and there, making it seem more like Death Metal. Take "Zombification" for instance. We've got some slower-paced stuff, with more emphasis on the riffs. Overall, quite an interesting release, and it seems as if the band were just experimenting to see what sort of direction they would like to head. Not to worry, though, they chose the Death Metal path. See next demo!
