Wimps and posers beware. From the depths of the black metal underground, one of its most elite figures returns with a new band and an even more evil attitude. As frontman of legendary Swedish maniacs Nifelheim, Hellbutcher upheld the bad name of real black metal with an iron fist. Now with this eponymous new band, the frenzied mission continues: nothing less than total metal mania will do.

Having been a leader in the Swedish black metal scene since the early '90s, this essence is truly in Hellbutcher's bones and flowing through his veins. Pure metal, total blasphemy, absolute musical Armageddon. 

Following the end of Nifelheim, who played their final show in late 2022, Hellbutcher himself wasted no time in forging forward. Teaming up with old compadres in evil, guitarists Necrophiliac (also of Mordant) and Iron Beast, bassist Eld and drummer Devastator (ex-Nifelheim), Hellbutcher quickly set about bringing this vision to life. In a short time, they had amassed enough material to record their raging, hellish, self-titled debut album. Recording in various locations around Sweden, such as Devastator's own Red And Black Hall drum studio and Iron Beast's Chrome studios, and producing and mastering everything themselves - it is a record that stands proud and unambiguous as a work or pure, metallic mayhem.

From the album's opener, the crazed The Sword Of Wrath, Hellbutcher's intent is loud and clear. Channelling the spirit of Venom, Bathory, Iron Maiden, Exciter, Motörhead, Mercyful Fate and the aggressive spirit of true heavy metal, it's an explosion of diabolic evil, performed mercilessly by true masters of the form. 

With an enviable musical pedigree and a killer album to their name, Hellbutcher are certain to scorch a mark onto the black metal scene. The man himself believes this could be even more devastating than his previous output.  Insisting in so many words that posers should die, and promising that their live shows "will be a neck-breaking experience", the underground is about to be hit with an outbreak of evil unlike anything it has seen for a long time.

Time to turn the cross upside down: Hellbutcher are here, and they mean evil business.
