Virginia punk-thrashers Municipal Waste are the modern-day spiritual kin to such '80s crossover greats as D.R.I. and Suicidal Tendencies. Albums such as 2012's The Fatal Feast showcase a ferocious beast whose primary lyrical obsessions include beer, pizza, partying and horror movies. While the subject matter may not be that serious, the group is dedicated to inspiring the largest mosh pits possible. The buzzsaw guitars of Ryan Waste and drumming from Dave Witte that's simultaneously rock-solid and rock-hard lay down a great canvas for vocalist Tony Foresta to spew forth venom as the fans futilely try to avoid getting crushed in the pit. Venice punk-rockers The Shrine aren't quite as metal, but their odes to surfing, skateboarding and rocking the eff out on new album Bless Off will help them fit on this bill just fine.
