Butcher Babies News: Butcher Babies' Heidi Shepherd Faced Uphill Battle To Success
Shepherd tells Metal Wani: "It's been an uphill battle, but it's also a double-edged sword. It's been somewhat of a hard journey because of that, but I feel very lucky, because I think if it had just been widely accepted, I may not have worked as hard for it, and I may not still be working as hard, and we may have just floated under the radar.
"The fact that we are something different, two girls in a metal band, maybe it turned some heads. It turns people off, without hearing the music at all, but it also turned heads that may not have turned before.
"And it is unfortunate that people immediately dismiss a band because there are girls in it. That's ridiculous - that's the dumbest thing ever. There's no reason why girls can't get up there and rock just as hard , if not harder than, the boys." Read more and watch the full interview - here.
