Butcher Babies – Monsters Ball: A Video Breakdown

Share:

Oh baby, baby. How was I supposed to know?

Hailing from Los Angeles, Butcher Babies gained attention from the metal world a few years back. Not so much for the music, but for their vocalists’ lack of wearing shirts. While the band features former members of Amen and Scars of Tomorrow, the real stars of the show are Heidi Shepherd and Carla Harvey. In the early days of the band’s career, these two comely ladies performed shirtless with black tape covering their nipples. Texas Hippie Coalition, take note.

In this day and age, you try to do whatever you can to gain attention, and it seems to have worked for them. The band is currently on a major metal label (Century Media) and they played Mayhem Fest in 2013. They ditched the tape, citing the desire to evolve to another look. What is this new look that you ask? Let’s see for ourselves.

 

0:01: Someone found Mudvayne’s old makeup case.
0:02: Holy shit, it’s zombie Davey Havok.
0:04: And his buddy, Meatloaf Face.
0:08: Oh, so this is what those hipster “adult proms” look like.
0:12: You know what they say: Nothing good happens in a club after 2am.
0:14: Ghetto Harley Quinn. Come on, those horns aren’t even canon.
0:15: Okay, that’s some pretty cool make up, you have to admit.
0:18: No! Not the apple juice!
0:19: He definitely caught a little bit of nostril with that lick.
0:25: Ugh. Demon bros. The worst.
0:31: The bartender looks like a chewed-up Salisbury steak.
0:37: She’s got those Betty Davis eyes…if Betty Davis was high on bath salts and Funions.
0:42: Wow, even Riff Raff from The Rocky Horror Picture Show is here.
0:44: Too much Watermelon Pucker for you, Riff Raff.
0:47: Who likes pastrami?!
0:52: No bartender should ever look that happy wiping down the bar.
0:56: That must be one of Hell’s lesser demons, Henryzuzu
0:59: Levity!
1:03: Now that’s some sweet choreography. 1 and 2 and eh fuck it.
1:12: She better not get her zipper wet or her face will rust.
1:16: That awkward stare either means she likes you or she’s trying to decide where to stash your body.
1:23: Is this a shot at Periphery?
1:27: Neo-thrash? I don’t know about that. Maybe Neo-widdily-diddly-burrrr-booow-bur-booooowww.
1:38: Gah! That’s not nightmare fuel. That’s a nightmare syringe jammed directly into your brain.
1:43: This evolution they’ve gone through must have Darwin spinning in his grave.
1:50: We need more bopping and hip popping in metal.
1:53: She’s got the greyscale! Don’t touch her!
2:01: See, this is why you don’t pick at your wounds.
2:05: Accurate recreation of a 7th grade dance.
2:08: Question: What do you do with a monster that has 3 balls?
2:10: Answer: You walk him intentionally to pitch to the zombie.
2:12: I really hope that’s supposed to be a cigar in his mouth.
2:23: Wow, they even have the Bear from The Bunny The Bear in this video.
2:30: The greatest show on Earth? Wait, this is The Sopranos.
2:39: Someone is going to have to throw out Meatloaf Face. He’s starting to turn.
2:49: KILL IT WITH FIRE AND BLEACH AND LEMON JUICE!
2:55: Please let Ryknow know where his devil horns went.
3:00: It’s so nice to have visual aids when showing people what “regret” looks like.
3:09: Bounce ya fucks!
3:16: Bounce like you’re Aversions Crown!
3:29: You’d think a monster’s ball would have at least one ball pit.
3:31: Or just a bunch of demons suffering from gigantism.
3:36: Oh, man. She’s going to get her hair stuck in the zipper. That’s going to hurt so much.
3:44: Can’t stop bouncing, no you can’t stop bouncing.
3:54: And you can’t stop talking about monster balls.

Butcher Babies new album Take It Like A Man will be released on August 21, 2015 via Century Media.

  • Kevin Nash & Friends

    I feel bad for the people in the band who aren’t the female vocalists because they’re being overshadowed by two women who use sex to sell their shitty music. It annoys me when women use sex to sell their music.

  • Dagon

    I am commenting to celebrate the fact that this is the first video breakdown I’ll be able to participate in what feels like ages.

    Only in an hour though.

    • DAGON!

            Hahaha I just watched that a few days ago. God he looks ridiculous.

          • sweetooth0

            quite possibly the greatest wig in cinema history! Hails to Subspecies!

          • Scrimm

            Always been one of my favorite z movies.

          • sweetooth0

            I actually thought they were some of the better vampire movies out there. It’s a cool series to marathon because up to part 3 the stories basically pick up right when the last one ends.

          • Scrimm

            I always liked Radu. Got the first 3 on dvd.

          • sweetooth0

            I snagged a bluray box set with the first 3. It was really cheap too, like 30 bucks. It says volume 1, but I don’t know what they’d put in volume 2 since there’s only one more sub-species movie. Probably they’d throw in that “Vampire Journals” thing they had in the “epic collection” dvd set that had them all, although I don’t believe that has anything to do with Subspecies.

            They should’ve just put part 4 in the set and called it a day, but that one sucked compared to the others, so I’m not too broken up about it.

          • Scrimm

            Yeah I’ve never made it all the way through 4. Some of the characters are from that Vampire Diaries crapfest, but I don’t think there was a connection when it first came out.

          • sweetooth0

            Even Radhu’s makeup looked shittier in number 4. Especially his hands. They really looked like gloves in that one. Too bulky

          • Scrimm

            Agreed. He looks much worse in that one. Still better than the hair and costumes of most of the other characters.

  • Scrimm

    Only made it about a minute. Still better than ffdp.

  • MFW I return home quick to sit in the toilet after eating two monstruous arepas with meat, eggs, vegetables, cheese and even The Evil Eye.

  • 365, awesome work as usual, you made me giggle again. But I still feel like a bad person clicking this and watching your reviews, I’m giving props to the editors to encourage you to listen and watch this awful stuff 🙁 I feel bad for you. What can I do so you can enjoy better music?!

    #Leave365Alone T-T)

  • Maik Beninton™

    Eh, I like that song, it’s catchy… my shitty taste strikes again.

    • Nah, it’s all just music. It’s only the “true” that take it all so laughably seriously.

  • Slurpy McFartyPubes

    Well, one of them was stripper, Playboy TV host and was naked for them. Go to motherless.com, and look up ‘carla harvey’. Needless to say, NSFW.

  • DCLXVI

    that semi-hollowbody guitar was all I needed to see here to remind me I’d already watched too much of this

  • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

    Goth girls are no doubt the sexiest girls, Cannot see any though, I go to a prep school where we have to wear uniforms, fuck me right?

  • Dagon

    I was slain by the bouncy Aversion’s Crown comparison. That was one of my favorite video breakdowns of all time.

    But my favorite was still that Brazilian lolprog band. It even made me display my choice of headwear.

  • Slurpy McFartyPubes

    God/Satan/Flying Spaghetti Monster/Zeus/Lincoln Osiris help me, I’m actually going to turn off Immolation and sit through this whole song. 365 Days is a brave man indeed for having sat through this.

    • more beer

      Never ever turn off Immolation!

      • Condom Full Of Croutons

        I did, and deleted my Livejournal after 14 years.

        • more beer

          Bad things happen when you turn them off. So you know I’m a little biased when it comes to them. They are old friends of mine.

          • Condom Full Of Croutons

            Eh, my LJ has been dead for years now. I took my best bits, and gonna redo them a bit for something else. At least I got 1,765,000 (final count) views out of the whole thing (and not one cent, lol).

  • This is somehow worse than the new Coal Chamber. Damn those lyrics are awful.
