I fancy a suckfest

A suckfest sounds like my kind of evening. Just me (well ok and maybe a few other guys), 10 chicks lined up. It would be my dreams come true.

So imagine my disappointment when I discover that “suckfest” isn’t what I thought it was.

MetalSucks, in conjunction with Live Nation, has announced The Metal Suckfest. The festival will take place at New York City’s Gramercy Theater and will feature 20 bands over the course of two days, November 4 and November 5. Municipal Waste will headline the first night, while Cynic will close the festival the following evening. The remaining acts will be revealed soon.

Municipal Waste are cool, but I still say that’s blatant false advertisement dammit. Oh well, back to porn.


Party recommendation: Municipal Waste

Municipal Waste are a Thrash Metal band from Richmond, Virginia, that formed way back in 2001. I saw them live a few years back, in fact, it must have been about 3 or 4 now, and they were an absolute delight live. Translation; they knew how to fuck things up. And I mean that in a good way, not in a bad way like how Aaron Lewis of Staind forgets half his lyrics on stage. Or like how he forgets to write music that doesn’t suck.

Municipal Waste know how to write some good party Metal, as you can guess from the name of their 2007 album The Art of Partying, in which the song above is taken from. In fact, to tell the truth, I’m only posting this because I’m intoxicated right now. So blast Sadistic Magician, before I try to drunkenly try to seduce your dead cat or something.

If you’re sick of the usual party garbage, then Municipal Waste are a great alternative.


The Big 5: New school thrash bands

I think most of us can agree that thrash is an awesome genre, one of the best genres in metal.  I mean, you got Testament, Sodom, ExodusDeath Angel and obviously a lot more.  These bands released wicked albums 20 plus years ago and some of them are still releasing  quality albums. (Death Angel being the best today but that’s for another discussion).  Also, you can’t forget The Big Four, these guys are the reason why thrash metal is still a respected genre to this day.  Master Of Puppets, Rust In Peace, Among The Living, Reign In Blood, these albums are classics – not just in thrash, but in metal history.

But what about the new bands? Is there a new Big Four?  No, but I decided to list the five biggest new school thrash bands today.   Two of the bands are somewhat popular in metal already, the other three are up and coming and releasing awesome stuff.

So, if you’re someone stuck listening to the oldies (don’t worry, I’m not telling you to stop), then give some of the new guys a chance.

Make the jump for the Top 5 new school thrash bands.
