Something occurred to me whilst hearing ‘Temper Temper’ on Radio 1 whilst lying in bed. I thought the title track to the Welsh quartet’s fourth album was a fucking abomination. Causing short circuits in my brain, however, was the fact I also genuinely enjoy going to see this band live. This handy combination of first-hand knowledge of my past actions coupled with my instant reaction to their shitty song on the radio could mean only one thing: I only enjoy Bullet For My Valentine when I’m drunk.

Album: Municipal Waste – The Fatal Feast

Municipal Waste
The Fatal Feast
Nuclear Blast

by Tom Dare

Municipal Waste are an odd band to try and review. There should probably be a media-wide agreement not to say a word about their records until we’ve lived with them for six months, as that’s the only point you can really make a conclusive judgement on them – not because they’re unusually complex, but because they can have a rather short shelf-life. But as that hasn’t happened and you lot won’t give a toss what we say in six months time, here goes.

Neil Fallon tells us about his Top 6 beers:

PROGTOLOGY with James Monteith of TesseracT: #2 – A Djentlemen’s Guide to SxSW

April 4th, 2011

Progtology with James Monetieth Thrash Hits

Sitting on the washing machine in a launderette is a great place to be when on tour. With no Wi-Fi and the mellowing rumble of the drums, it’s a serene place to reflect on times past, and what a crazy week I’ve just had. I’m at the start of the TesseracT tour with Protest The Hero and Maylene & The Sons of Disaster which is awesome, and I’ve just come from Austin, Texas and the South By South West festival.

Children Of Bodom, Asia, and countless emo bands all named themselves after cool places. Hull is both a fishing town on the English East Coast and an awesome Brooklyn HEAVY METAL quintet. Nick Palmirotto talks about stuff.

2008 into 2009: Gama Bomb

December 12th, 2008

Gama Bomb might well be the best thrashers to come out of Ireland… ever. Joe McGuigan is the self-proclaimed “leader of the futuristic warriors hell-bent on destroying Fightstar.” He is also the bassist of the gumby troupe.

What was your highlight of 2008?
Releasing our ace new tape, Citizen Brain and doing over 60 shows in Europe. Touring with Exodus and shoving petrol-covered rags down the gullet of non-believers.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
Errrm, doing over 60 shows in Europe. Nah, nothing bad has happened to the band – it’s been an amazing year. Me? I think I hit my wee toe off the door last month.
