Municipal Waste is a band meant to be blasted while tearing the sleeves off your jean jacket. With gang vocal choruses, rapid-fire machine-gun riffing, and tongue-in-cheek rippers like "The Thrashin' of the Christ," these dudes recall the glory days of '80s crossover, when metal and hardcore first swapped DNA via bands like D.R.I., the Cro-Mags, and the Crumbsuckers. Oh, and "Terror Shark" is the year's most kick-ass ode to killer fish.
Fellow audio offenders Goatwhore, Phobia, and Cauldron share the bill during Municipal Waste's Clubhouse show.
