AllMusic Review by

The eponymous Heeled & Heavy Records-issued debut long-player from the rootsy, New Jersey-based hard rock unit, Butchers of Sky Valley offers up a fiery mix of Deep South-kissed classic rock, smokin' blues, stoner metal, and vintage American trad rock that invokes names like ZZ Top, the Black Keys, Lightnin' Hopkins, Kyuss, Black Sabbath, the Dirty Three, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac, and Queens of the Stone Age. Undeniably potent yet potable, the ten-track set is as poetic and engaging as it is downright combustible.
