Landmine Marathon Guitarist Ryan Butler On New Album Gallows

September 29, 2011


Extreme metal guitarist Ryan Butler of Landmine Marathon recently checked in with Guitar World magazine to talk about their hardcore new album Gallows.

The record, released Sept. 27 via Prosthetic Records, marks the band’s fourth studio album and is rawer and heavier than ever before.

“It’s pretty brutal and may be the most straightforward,” Butler told Guitar World.

The Jackson-wielding guitarist also talks about Landmine Marathon’s upcoming North American tour with thrash titans Warbringer, Lazarus A.D. and Diamond Plate.

“I’m not super familiar with Lazarus A.D. and Diamond Plate yet, but I know Warbringer real well,” said Butler to Guitar World. “I think we’ll mesh with them because they have a really raw edge as well as being a tight band.”
