Underground legends MANIAC BUTCHER have re-formed after a ten-year hiatus and have recorded a new album, released on August 10th, 2010. The full-length is entitled Masakr and is issued on CD and LP by Negative Existence.

MANIAC BUTCHER are the longest-running true black metal band from the Czech Republic. Since the early ’90s, they have maintained their motto of “No keyboards!! No female vocals!! Only pure black metal storm!!” which forged their straightforward and ruthless sound. 

Masakr contains six new tracks of orthodox black metal. Raw and heavy guitars pound out riff after riff of furious evil energized by aggressive drumming and completed with a violent wave of harsh vocals that tell the epic tale of Maniac Butcher. The overall sound on Masakr is monstrous. This album is by far the most professionally produced MANIAC BUTCHER album to date yet still captures the raw and underground feeling of previous albums.

MANIAC BUTCHER recorded their new album between March and May of 2010 at three separate studios. Drums were tracked at Aquarium in March, guitars at Bohemian Hell in April, and vocals at Nhaavah in May. The album was mixed at Bohemian Hell.

2010 sees not only a new MANIAC BUTCHER album but also select live performances at underground black metal festivals across Europe. Original members Barbarud and Blasphemer have recruited Coroner on drums (ex-Solfernus, ex-Despise) for the new album and Infernal on guitar (Zlo) and Lord Obst on bass (Hellocaustor) for live performances.
