Preview: Municipal Waste at Screamin' Willies

Chris DeVille, Columbus Alive

Stinging from the dearth of metal bands at ComFest? Head east to Reynoldsburg, where Virginia's foremost hardcore-infused thrash masters Municipal Waste headline a powerful slate Friday at Screamin' Willie's.

They're touring behind their new album "The Fatal Feast: Waste in Space," in which they continue to strike a balance of fun and brutality best described as "gnarly." (Even the cover art does so.)

Add Black Tusk and 3 Inches of Blood to the mix, and you've got your antidote for that headbanging deficiency.

Screamin' Willies
