Phobia. RULING.
Phobia

NYC faced the Waste on 12/9, and the animals were let loose when Municipal Waste, Brutal Truth, Phobia and Cauldron teamed up at Gramercy. Tons of pics below.

Municipal Waste ends their tour in their hometown of Richmond on Friday (12/11), and after a month away from the road, hop on a flight to Europe to continue the madness. Brutal Truth also has exotic locales in their sights; after Richmond, the triumphant and reunited band hits Japan for a set of dates starting on 12/15, but will be back in time for Dan Lilker to join up with Crucifist for some January dates on the east coast. Phobia carries on from Richmond into the south before ending the tour in Texas.

Full tour dates for all bands, as well as some videos with the rest of the pictures (and some setlists), below...

BRUTAL TRUTH SHOULD HANG IT UP

Brutal Truth were fucking sad. Like, honestly. Seen the, 5 times, never good.

Cauldron, yes, I would hit that.

remember when phobia had to cancel a tour recently cuz the singer was arrested for beating up his gf? good times.

Dan Lilker never wears a sleeves on his shirts.

Decidedly not upset that I missed this. Last time I saw Phobia, their singer insisted on saying "Up The Punx" in between every single song.

Dan Lilker doesn't own a shirt with sleeves. Or a collar for that matter.

That show was a real ripper.
Municipal Waste put on one of the best shows.
The Wall of Death was incredible.
Brutal Truth is really really boring. An even worse contrast opening for MW.

Why would I care how long Brutal Truth's been playing, they still suck. Municipal Waste killed it on Saturday in Richmond, amazing show, but Brutal Truth was horrible. Everyone thought they were a joke cept some cracked out dudes.
