BUTANNA: Retribution: CS

First off, Butanna slays live. Their presence is powerful. Last time I saw them, their song “FTP” seriously put angry tears to my eyes. Fierce, poignant, and political lyrics propel their X (the band) sound with punk-as-fuck Black Flag guitar riffs to a whole other level. Vanessa’s screams are savage, the bass fills are seriously sick, and the guitar is metal (not overly) enough to really put some teeth in it. Worthy of some damn praise. –Camylle Reynolds (Self-released, butanna.bandcamp)
