Old School: Bloodthirsty Butchers

This band’s Wikipedia page sums it up – Bloodthirsty Butchers get nearly no attention in Western music circles, but are a big deal amongst the rock circles in Japan. Having never heard from this Sapporo group that’s been together since 1987, I’ve been giving them a listen a lot lately. All you need to know about them…they cut a split single with Rocket From The Crypt, which sums up what they do well. They’ve got a new album coming out next year, so keep an eye out for that one. Meanwhile, if you’ve never heard Bloodthirsty Butchers, head on over here and learn a little bit about Japanese rock history.

  1. Agreed =) Really cool band and perhaps you’ll be happy to know that they’re included (er, mentioned) in an article I’m writing at the moment! Good timing ^-^\/

    …and a new album for 2010!? I’m excited!
