Butcher Babies Vocalists Carla Harvey And Heidi Shepherd Discuss The Role Of Women In Metal, "Take It Like A Man" And More

The Butcher Babies has become one of metal's most talked about bands this decade, and indeed one of it's most polarising. However the group has won over many doubters with their blistering live performances and deep rooted love of metal music that shines through particularly well on their latest album, "Take It Like A Man."

At their recent show at the Camden Underworld in London, (see review here,) I had the opportunity to sit down and speak with the Butcher Babies' vocalists Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd about the history and perception of women in metal music, their latest album, future plans and even merchandise. You can watch the interview below.
