When people talk about the 'Thrash Metal Revival' they make two mistakes: the assumption that thrash metal was dead and the assumption that someone is bringing it back. Thrash metal wasn't dead, thrash metal was never alive. Thrash metal is undead. Municipal Waste aren't bringing thrash metal back, they're killing it over and over again.
The self-proclaimed 'punks playing metal' come with a live show famous (read imfamous) that combines the party attitude of two of music's most irrevrent, hard fun-loving genres. But, circle pits (some spanning two floors of King Tuts' venue space??), stagedives and partying aren't the sole concerns of these Richmond face-melter-shredder-thrasher-rippers. Vocalist Tony Foresta takes us through the rest of the important stuff... oh, and the partying as well.
