Mad Butcher! A fire is burning in his eyes His brain is in war and the evil will rise His blood is black, it's scalding hot Now he's got to ramble He knows that's his lot. Through the black streets of the town His steps are clanging Now he's wanton, oh he's panting In his hend a blade of solid steel Now it's the time you got to feel.

Destruction's 1987 Mad Butcher EP not only sees a fresh paint of coat on one of their all-time, classic tracks, but gives the titular mascot his first iconic appearance 'in the flesh', as it were. Now the band is in shape and they are growing as musicians and we can hear it album after album, year after year. That was the best period for the band before the split and the reunion and these tracks are again some of their most representative ones. Without further introductions, let’s get straight to the music. This EP starts with the incredibly dynamic and schizophrenic riff of another classic in the Destruction’s discography: Mad Butcher.
Mad Butcher - The original song version of the song can be found on the Sentence of Death EP from 1984. This version is cleaned up with a lot better production and the band members play a lot tighter. It opes up with a classic riff that starts the cacophony of riffs that ensue later in the song. This song is very fast, and is the song Destruction is most well known for. Probably the reason it was re-recorded. The structure is a bit different than the original version of the song.
