The beast is back. Jack Control (World Burns To Death/Severed Head Of State) and Butcher have set a ridiculously high standard with this breathtaking debut album. "Holding Back The Night" represents an unexpected and fresh direction for underground hardcore punk. Butcher remix elements of classic Japanese punk and USHC into an original 21st century blend complete with poignant, timeless lyrics, driving riffs, and amazing artwork courtesy of Tomohiro Matsuda (Lipcream, SOB, etc.). Butcher's exhilarating vision of hardcore provides a breath of fresh air and quite possibly a new way forward.
