Sound: Being two of the most respected metal bands of today, Municipal Waste and Toxic Holocaust joined forces in 2012 and came up with this 4-track split EP, "Toxic Waste". The first two songs being by Municipal Waste ("Trapped In The Sites", "Mourning Sex") and the other two by Toxic Holocaust ("We Bring 'Em Hell" and "Altar-ed States"). The whole EP runs at less than 10 minutes, so you can't really make a long review of this. Let's put it like this: 8 minutes of some fine thrashing, each band keeping with their sounding: Municipal Waste and its crossover/hardcore assaults and Toxic Holocaust with their blackened thrash style. So, if you know both bands, you know what to expect, I guess. Fast riffs, fast drumming, all the kinds of stuff that will keep you headbanging. // 9

Lyrics: When it comes to lyrics, both bands also keep their identity very well. Municipal Waste's lyrics bringing up the funny stuff mixed with their obsession for violence (great example being "Mourning Sex", a funny story of necrophilia), while Toxic Holocaust's lyrics approach all the violent/gore stuff, example of it being "Altar-ed States". On the singing aspect, both vocalists did a great job as always here, each one with their style of delivering the goods: Tony Foresta with his hardcore/crossover shouts and Joel Grind with his death-metal oriented growling. // 9

Overall Impression: Like I've said before, they're two of the most acclaimed bands in the metal music scene of today, both have been releasing great records recently and also touring together, so this EP is like heaven for the "modern thrasher". It's just simple and nice thrash metal to open a beer to and enjoy. // 9
