Butcher Babies are bringing the heavy on new record.

Butcher Babies vocalist Carla Harvey recently spoke with Fairfield City Champion about the follow-up to last year’s Goliath.

Harvey mentioned that she thinks the band will be going in a heavier direction:

“I think that it’s going to be a little thrashier than the current album. We’re working with a different producer too, and any time you use a different producer, there’s going to be a bit of a different sound. We’re really looking forward to bringing back a little more of the thrash element to our music.”

She attributes this to the bands diverse influences saying:

“We all have different influences, but collectively we could all agree that SLIPKNOT and PANTERA are our biggest influences as a band,” said Carla. “I grew up listening to old-school thrash metal and classic metal and, of course, PANTERA; Heidi [Shepherd, vocals] grew up listening to more nu-metal and stuff; our drummer also nu-metal. Henry listens to MESHUGGAH and heavier stuff and our bass player loves death metal. We put it all together and we make it something that is distinctly BUTCHER BABIES, I think.”

In the meantime, the band will be releasing a covers EP called Uncovered (Century Media) September 30th in North America and October 6th in Europe and can be pre-ordered here, the track listing is:

1. Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers
2. They’re Coming To Take Me Away
3. Don’t Give A Fuck
4. Crazy Horses
5. Pussy Whipped
