Cannibal Corpse, Municipal Waste, Strike Anywhere, Symptoms & Life Trap All on the Rock Block Tonight

Posted By on Tue, Nov 9, 2010 at 8:59 AM

Hey hey, heshers, tonight is your night for the heavy heavy on both sides of the aptly named (at least for tonight) Rock Block. First off, over at Exit/In, Cannibal Corpse get all kinds of blood-cum-and-virgin-entrails thrashy. Can a grown man still listen to C.C. and find awesomeness in the prurience and the brutality? Sean Maloney tried, and whether he failed or succeeded depends on how you feel about songs like "Frantic Disembowelment." Meanwhile, over at The End, Municipal Waste headline another heavy bill, which Matt Sullivan tells you about in this week's Critics' Picks

While doom and black metal have been the prevailing styles of hyped metal bands for several years, classic thrash revivalists have been multiplying beneath the surface exponentially. For proof, browse the bands who’ve signed to Earache Records over the past two or three years, and good luck distinguishing one band from another. If you’re late to the party — and “party” is the operative word here — Municipal Waste are pretty much the two words you need to know. But rather than just aping Megadeth or Slayer riffs, the band sits in the crossover zone where thrash and hardcore punk converge. Their newest album, Massive Aggressive, continues exploring the themes the Richmond, Va., four-piece have been dissecting for almost a decade — trashing things and getting trashed.

Neck brace, anyone?
