Municipal Waste - The Fatal Feast
This is the last known studio album by these american crossover thrash finest; Municipal Waste, released in 2012 under Nuclear Blast Records. The number one band in modern crossover thrash metal is without a doubt Municipal Waste. They've made a name for themselves through producing some of the most headbangable thrash metal you'll come across, as well as through more-or-less ridiculous gimmicks like having beer bongs as an integral part of their live shows, or having people wake board over the crowd instead of regular crowd surfing, and stuff like that.In The Fatal Feast the crossover wheel is hardly reinvented with respect to the band’s first three records. However, the acquired benefit of maturity from the band’s previous album is more than evident. Contains 16 tracks, this album shift in varying degrees between different influences within the crossover spectrum such as brutal thrash, chugging hardcore, and melodic punk. However, one major note is how the band have upped the ante in the prime riffing department as these riffs are just so damn satisfying and rank up there with the band’s best. The other major characteristic that stands out is how the band’s has continued to improve in the songwriting department.For everyone who know nothing yet about this band, i tell you this; If you love bands such as: Suicidal Tendencies, D.R.I., S.O.D. and early Exodus, then you will love this band. It's old school thrash played well. There is no filler or lengthy melodic guitar solos. Just straight up thrash with a really nice punk rock influence.
