I wish that sum bitch would answer his phone because I have a few cutting words to give him for the damage he did to my ears. I'm a big fan of Mountain King/Gutter Ballet-era Savatage, but Jon Olivia's Japan project "Dr. Butcher" leaves me wishing for more surgical precision.
The music is adequate, but the lyrics either don't flow well with the music (The Altar) or they belong on a Junior H.S. notebook given titles like: "Don't Talk To Me", "Reach Out And Torment Someone", I Hate, You Hate...We All Hate!!".
Looking at the anatomical structure of the CD, Dr. Butcher is an appropriate name for this in-your-face mess of tunes.
