Artist: Municipal Waste
Venue: Gramercy Theatre (New York, NY)
Opener: Cauldron, Brutal Truth, Phobia
Date: 12/9/2009
Label: Earache Records

Every once in awhile you find yourself hitting a show that while you don’t have the most background on you in terms of the gamut of talented bands, you end up going just the same in hope that you can offer up your take and observe the scene that surrounds the bands that are performing effectively. Such was the case for me with the Municipal Waste show this evening for while a number of my friends have been extolling this bands virtues and discussing their live shows, they were a band that I had not gotten around to enjoying in concert yet myself. The interesting thing was how the whole night would be pretty much of a mystery for me with the exception of the very first band on who would be Cauldron. I knew some of their stuff and remembered one of their members being a part of a band that went away too soon by the name of Goat Horn. The show would also feature Brutal Truth and Phobia and here is how it went.

Thor @ The Continental (8/5/2005)

Logo - Thor

Artist: Thor
Venue: The Continental – NYC
Opener: Goat Horn, Nasty Disaster (unsigned bands)
Date: 8/5/2005
Genre: Heavy Metal

In addition to CBGB’s there is another legendary Punk venue where you can catch a killer show in an intimate setting. The club is The Continental and it is located in the Village in NYC. Tonight this was to be the scene of the The Return Of Thor, the Legendary Rock Warrior. Since I knew this was going to be a lot of fun I made sure to get there early enough to enjoy all of the festivities that were planned. Many people might not be aware but Thor has been a performer for over 20 years and in addition to Rocking Mighty with his sacred hammer, he performs feats of strength and endurance during the show. The night began with a few interesting groups who were all unsigned and while there were four in total I was only able to focus on a couple of them in particular as I was catching up with Friends as well. Goat Horn was a powerful and very fun Metal trio who played up the Death thing with a whole lot of melody. Given this was a Thor show I was not sure if some of the other acts would be of the same caliber of show. I wondered if GH was doing their music with a little tongue-in-cheek humor. I wondered this because the singer made the audience spell out Satan before the song that seemed to be called “Satan Is Coming”. Of course keeping the tongue firmly in cheek was hard to do when Nasty Disaster came onstage. This was a band that played Metal with songs that were about Metal. I have to say that they were a lot of fun from guitarist Ian McRock and songs like “Slut” it was just an amusing experience. I recommend looking out for them both.
