Feels like it's been a while since I've seen a band, and after missing out on Cattle Decapitation on the weekend, mainly due to financial considerations (Liz said they were great in case anyone's taking notes) I was glad that the Waste put on a pretty good show.
Started off the night with dinner at Liz's place. Â The steak was excellent and the wine went down well! Â There were 4 bands on the lineup, and aside from Municipal Waste, neither of us had any real desire to see the other 3 (a couple of whom we'd collectively seen in the past). Â We decided there was no point getting there early, so keep drinking wine until 9pm came around.
We arrived at the venue just before 9:30 which was about the same time Truth Corroded came on. Â They did their usual set of pretty generic death metal. Â They do it well, but with little to no originality. Â They are a tight unit though, so the set wasn't intolerable, just a little uninspiring.
They got off the stage, and I had the chance to sneak in a quick Coopers Dark Ale, and then Municipal Waste came on at around 10:30 (which is actually a little late for a weeknight gig at Fowlers). Â They're a pretty high energy band, playing a relatively old school version of thrash metal, and the crowd, despite being low on numbers seemed pretty into it. Â As did the band, who's witty banter certainly kept most amused. Â It was a great set, only criticism would be that it was a short one - over and done with in 45 minutes. Â Considering the energy they put out on stage, it's not such a big deal really, but combined with skipping most of the support acts it felt like a short night.
Not sure how many more Aussie shows they have on their tour, but they're well worth checking out if they're playing in your town this weekend. Â Here's a shitty Instagram photo!
