Be My Slave is a 1983 album by the American heavy metal band Bitch, released on the Metal Blade Records label under the genre "dominatrix metal". Be My Slave was cited by Tipper Gore, during the Parents Music Resource Center campaign against violent and sexually explicit content in the music industry and was held as an example in the hearing before the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation on September 19, 1985
Uniting Bitch's first full-length album, Be My Slave (1983), with songs from its 1981 EP Damnation Alley on a single CD, this reissue shows just how delightfully outrageous the . based metal band was in the beginning. With her S&M and bondage themes and frequent references to whips, chains and handcuffs, lead singer Betsy (who sounds like Pat Benatar's evil twin) managed to offend liberals and conservatives alike.
Bitch were mentioned on an episode of the "Speak & Destroy" podcast, and it sounded like something that'd be right up my alley, but it turned out to be mediocre at best. Getting this out of the way, the speed and aggression of the guitars are what saves this from being a complete waste of time. The raw production gives them such an angry buzz that made the spin worth it; there's some pretty cool licks here, and David Carruth definitely had the chops. Maybe I'm taking this album too seriously, and it's meant to be silly. But I do not get that kind of vibe. Be My Slave is worth a listen, but that's about it.
