"A Butchers Banquet" is the follow-up to The Old Firm Casuals' barn-burning debut full-length "This Means War." With "A Butchers Banquet," The Old Firm Casuals take their sound to an epic realm with seven huge songs that further establish the band's place among the international streetpunk elite. The record shows a range of musical influences from Motorhead to AC/DC that makes the songs sound decidedly more rock 'n' roll than their previous releases while still coming off as more aggressive and angry than ever before. The lyrics reflect the current bullshit US political climate and indict the white collar criminals and socialite elitists that have put us in such a tailspin. The guitars cut. The bass drives. The drums pound. The vocals grate.
Pressed using Pirate Press’ brand new UV printing technology, this record is something for a collector to hold in their hand and feel like they’ve never held a record like it before.
The A-Side looks like a red vinyl record, until you notice the band and album name appearing as a shadow underneath the grooves. The B-side is printed full color, and looks just like a picture disc... and the whole thing sits in a printed picture disc sleeve with the original album artwork appearing as the front cover, behind it a mirror foil gold backing card that folds out and doubles as a gatefold lyric insert.
Moving all the tracks to one side, and giving the listener a full 45RPM 17-minute blitz of the “Casual Rock ’N’ Roll“ that this band is so well known for is the real prize here. This album has never sounded as good, and this unbelievable vinyl treasure is bound to satisfy the appetite of fans and vinyl collectors across the globe!
This is a one sided 12” made on [transparent] Blood Red Vinyl, printed Black, then white and then full color, all on the non-groove side of the record. The full color original album art is printed on the picture disc sleeve, and there is a 12x24” gatefold insert with mirror gold foil on one side, and the insert artwork/lyrics on the other.
