Demo: Broken Butterfly X – ‘Demo Tracks’
The buzz is growing around new Herts-based alt-metal band Broken Butterfly X, with recent radio play and London dates already under their belt. It’s not hard to see why when you hear their debut demo release.
Grinding, hook-filled riffs and a super-tight backline are the name of the game, overlaid with singer Sah’s chameleon-like vocals switching in a heartbeat from hauntingly soulful to take-your-face-off fierce.
Opener My Reason kicks straight in with a killer riff, an air of malevolence and an infectious groove. – it demands your attention and isn’t giving it back. From here the pace mellows slightly with Clockwork, all brooding intensity and compellingly emotive vocals.
The Rebellion is the stand-out track on this demo, deliciously dark yet catchy as fuck, it’s one of those songs you only need to hear once before it’s under your skin for good, defying the listener not to bounce around like a deranged loon.
Broken Butterfly X are headlining the Water Rats on 9th August and on the strength of this demo, Pure Rawk reckons they’re well worth checking out. Get your grubby little mitts on tickets from ticketweb/ticketmaster, or direct from the band.
