Municipal Waste Recruits New Guitar Player

Richmond, Virginia’s speed metal punks from Municipal Waste are very pleased to announce the addition of brand new member, Nick Poulos, on second guitar. Guitarist Ryan Waste comments:

"Nick joining the Waste is a big deal for us, we couldn’t just add anyone to the fold. It had to be a close friend, and he's one of our best buds in fact. It doesn’t hurt that he can play his ass off too! He gets our style and totally adds to it, making us an even heavier force to be reckoned with. We’re all having a blast working together, cooking up new tunes and pulling out some classic Waste cuts for this upcoming UK tour and Download Festival!"

Nick Poulos adds: "I couldn't be more thrilled about teaming up with the Waste! We're no strangers when it comes to making music together and when they asked me to join on second guitar, there was zero hesitation. The history of this band and watching the growth has not only made me proud but excited for the future.”

Nick Poulos currently plays with Ryan Waste in Volture and Bat, and formerly played with bassist Phil Hall in Cannabis Corpse. Additionally, Municipal Waste is set to commence a U.K. headline tour this week, kicking off with an epic performance at the Download Festival.

A Second Look At Heavy Metal In Video Games

Two weeks back we asked a simple question: why isn't there more heavy metal in the video game world?

Our Facebook page blew up with gamers offering up their favorite titles with metallic soundtracks, and we took a closer look at several worth your time. In that post still available here if you didn't read it, we looked at the king of heavy metal video games – Brutal Legend – as well as Saint's Row The Third, Killing Floor 2, Painkiller, and Guilty Gear X2 Reload.

After that post went online, Zynthetic – responsible for much of the music in Killing Floor and Killing Floor 2 – wrote up an article attempting to answer the question of why more metal doesn't show up in video games since they seem like a perfect and obvious match.

For his take on the lack of metal in gaming, including the difficulties in licensing existing music and the lack of metallic knowledge among composers, read the full article right here.

Since we love gaming and we love metal, it seemed like a good idea to keep checking in every so often with new entries that combine the two, and this week we'll cover four more solid games filled to the brim with extreme metal. Don't see your favorite game listed? Don't worry, we'll cover more in the future, but be sure to still give us your picks in the comments below.

Splatterhouse

Five years ago a reboot of the '88 arcade game Splatterhouse hit consoles, and it was very much notable for the inclusion of an all-metal soundtrack featuring the likes of Lamb of God, Mastodon, Municipal Waste, Cavalera Conspiracy, and Goatwhore.

As the name would suggest, it's filled with buckets of blood and guts, and the action-oriented beat 'em up style is somewhat similar to Dante's Inferno/God Of war/etc. The frantic combat will see your character Rick frequently losing limbs and more, but that's not a problem because they grow back – and hey, you can pick up the severed appendages of your foes to continue beating them down!

This one's filled to the brim with all sorts of horror goodies (and ridiculousness) like time travel, cosmic horror deities, and plenty of nods to Lovecraft with names like “Dr. West” and places called “Arkham.” Someone helpfully put all the songs from the soundtrack together into one playlist at YouTube here, and you can check out a game trailer below:

Tony Foresta Releases "Liquid Arson" Hot Sauce

Tony Foresta, lead singer of Municipal Waste and Iron Reagan, has released a brand of signature hot sauce called "Liquid Arson."

A collaboration with the Tears Of Joy hot sauce brand, Tony's sauce is a mosh pit in your mouth with a 9 out of 10 heat rating and is available for purchase at this location. Tony comments:

"This is a collaberation with me and Brian from The mighty 'Tears Of Joy' hot sauce in Austin Texas. I've been wanting to work with him for years as I've always been a big fan of his store and the sauces he makes, The Sword's 'Tears of Fire,' His Tequila Lime Sauce, Red Fang's 'Night Destroyer' to name a few. Liquid Arson is an Italian flavored sauce that packs a punch but still has a lot of flavor. Good with almost anything to me personally I think it goes best with meatball subs, pizza or chicken parm. It's kind of like a nuclear marinara sauce." More...
