Mad Butcher is the second EP by German thrash metal band Destruction, released in 1987. Tommy had left the band and two new members had entered the group: a new drummer, Olli, and a new guitarist, Harry.

"Mad Butcher," the first song of the album, is a Destruction classic, but this revision is faster, with double solos from Harry and Mike. The second song "The Damned" is a cover song from The Plasmatics. The third song "Reject Emotions" is a thrash ballad. Finally, "The Last Judgement" is an instrumental song played by Harry.
