Masacration-the other funny metal band

Depraved Dave turned me onto this "semi-parody" band a few years ago,musicaly it's tight and over the top metal and funny as shit songs.heres a little more info on Massacration-Their biography is somewhat similar to Spinal Tap's. Massacration started as a fake parody "true heavy metal" band on the comedy TV show "Hermes & Renato" on Brazilian MTV, with fake biography, fake long hair, fake live recordings, dumb interviews and whatnot. Since then, they've done a bunch of real concerts (including a tour with Sepultura, with Igor Cavalera as session drummer), and released an album produced by "Rick Rubinho", a.k.a. Ratos de Porão's João Gordo.
They also became hosts of "Total Massacration", a Headbanger's Ball-like TV show, with jokes in between.Photobucket

Wrathchild America-Commercial Thrash

My band was supposed to play a show with Ravage last night but the Ravage guys were having a real shitty tour=vehicle problems galore so they wisely opted not to play in OKC.I was actually getting kinda stoked to see some old style Thrash Metal with no death/grind/whatever influence but it never happened,so on my way home I rocked out to this album. Wrathchild America were total "Thrash lite"and got signed to a major a the very end of the whole Thrash Metal phenomena,you can almost see the band getting butthurt to the rumbling sound of the grunge and death/grind scenes eating their pathetic souls!I think Pantera did some touring with these guys before they hit it big,and I caught them playing a show with oklahoma's own Oliver Magnum. At least back in 1989 there were clubs that strictly catered to metal every night of the week,bands had a soundman thus having a great sound onstage and there was not much tolerence for sloppiness etc....well I gotta go just got some news that we may be playing a show with Marduk!!!NO DEPOSIT-NO RETURN motherfuckers!!!!!
