MUNICIPAL WASTE, EVILE, BONDED BY BLOOD Featured On 'Thrashing Like A Maniac' Compilation

November 19, 2007

Earache Records has announced the release of an explosive collection of tracks from the growing legion of new-school thrash and crossover bands, set to appear in stores in Europe on January 21, 2008 and in the U.S. on February 5.

The compilation, entitled "Thrashing Like A Maniac", brings together the very best of the new crop of bands who are revelling in re-awakening the long-lost genre, and building on the work of the past thrash masters. It will surely please old and new fans of the genre alike, if razor-sharp riffs, blistering drum speeds and shredding guitar solos are what you crave.

For many of the acts, this collection brings together their very first recordings. Bands include Earache's EVILE and BONDED BY BLOOD, plus the debut of recent Earache signees, Irish thrashers GAMA BOMB, as well as the leaders of the current thrash pack — MUNICIPAL WASTE.
