*****VINYL LIMITED EDITION (with immediate album download)*****
exclusively through Faux Discx:
'The Butcher's Voice' is a collection of lyrically provocative and spellbinding songs, perfectly showcasing the haunting purity of Warwick’s voice, hushed musical delivery, and his dark tongue-in-cheek humour.
'The Butcher’s Voice' is perhaps the flip side to Warwick's previous release 'The Ordeal' which shied away from grandeur, 'The Butcher’s Voice' embraces it with both arms. Here is an album both brash and ambitious; full of dry and sinister humour, an album that sonically relishes the full potential of every composition.
Lyrically, there is a reoccurring theme of gender identity punctuating almost every track, in this respect it could almost be described as a concept album. Fitting then that female-to-male transsexual porn star Buck Angel should feature on the album's cover.
Densely layered and rich, playful and dark, 'The Butcher's Voice' is a collection of 11 elegant compositions; a heady mix of bittersweet lost-love songs and Warwick’s darkly comic, twisted and lewd lyrical wit.
