Staff pick
Metallic Taste Of Blood - Doctoring The Dead
Experimental and noisy

This album is an amalgamation of ambient atmosphere, structure and noise. It's convoluted yet sensible enough not to appear to be completely out to lunch. This is food for the restless mind. If you, like me, enjoyed their début album, this will definitely sit well with you.

Try the album teaser at SoundCloud.

Municipal Waste - Massive Aggressive (2009)

Municipal Waste are back with another blazing fast offering of crossover thrash. Massive Aggressive lives up to its namesake. The band rips through 13 songs in a scant 28 minutes and change… it's an audio hurricane that showcases what we've come to know, love, and expect from the Waste. The band is tight.
