Junkyard Lipstick recently dropped their new EP, The Butcher's Delight, a follow-up to their debut album, Hellbent, released in March 2013.

The release sees the all-girl thrash/power metal band develop a heavier and racier sound, with the music exhibiting a more structured palette. "We feel that this release showcases our progress on the technical and songwriting side; we pushed each other to the edge with this one – all in the name of having great fun," Lucinda Villain, the band's drummer, told Rolling Stone.

The EP consists of six tracks, and the content preserves the group's political and religious ideologies whilst adding what the band calls "a classy touch of humour and gore". Their music also focuses on themes like social issues and "gore delivered with a feminine touch."

The band started in Cape Town in early 2011, inspired by the movie, The Runaways, and a "why the hell not" attitude. They've been jamming the local club circuit ever since. They've also played Splashy Fen, Rock the River, Rolling Stone Weekend, and will be playing RAMfest this year.

The official EP launch will be at ROAR in Observatory, Cape Town, on 29 March 2014.

1. Bioterror
