THE BUTCHER PROJECT is a Punk/Metal/HxC band from Marseille (France). This project has been created in March 2009 by Isa and Loki after the split of their former band (Pog Mo Thoin). The sound of THE BUTCHER PROJECT is a real butchery. It makes ears bleed. Influenced by various music trends as Trash, Metal, Punk, Metalcore... The band avoids any superficial elements, in order to emphasize the essential of music: its energy. Playing speed, simple, and efficient songs, the band cuts meat in live wherever the doors are open for them.

After a few changes of line-up, THE BUTCHER PROJECT is now composed by Ciko (voice), Loki (Guitar), Isa (Bass), and Benji (Drums). All four play music for having fun and for sharing the music they like. "Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood..." as someone said years ago.

...Pride to be free... Pride to live now... Pride to be real... Pride to be here...
