Sex and death songs - we'd like to introduce you to Grausame Tochter on this edition of the Music Box, who have a rather unique act.

We’re introducing you to the Butcher Babies this time in the Music Box, performing ‘Headspin’ from their latest album ‘Lilith’.
Originally from Los Angeles, where so many of the artists in the Music Box originate from, the Butcher Babies’ music draws comparisons with heavy metal, groove metal, and thrash metal, and include bands such as Slayer, Marilyn Manson and Slipknot as their influences.
The band and artist that had the biggest influence on the Butcher Babies though, was the Plasmatics with Wendy O Williams, who is sadly no longer with us having passed away in 1998.
For the first video in this presentation then, we go back in time to when the Plasmatics were ruling the roost with their own type of punk rock.
Wendy O was running around with chainsaws and wore nothing more than whipped cream and a couple of clothes pegs as a lingerie set.
Here are the Plasmatics with ‘Butcher Baby’, the song from which the Butcher Babies took their name:
The Butcher Babies are also well known for their aggressive stage appeal and for wearing nipple tape, another influence inspired by Wendy O.
The track we’re featuring from the Butcher Babies is ‘Headspin’ from the ‘Lilith’ album, which was released in 2017.
Mentioned in a few circles as being ‘porn metal’, Headspin features pornstar Jessica Rhodes in the virtual reality sections, whilst the singers Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd prance around in dominatrix-style black latex and fishnets.
All quite the norm for a Music Box video then!
Without further ado, here’s the video Headspin by the Butcher Babies:
Great stealing at the end of the video where the guy with the VR headset claims ‘I’m just playing a game’!
We hope you enjoyed our latest Music Box presentation, and join us next time for more ‘Girlie Metal’!
