Mu­nic­i­pal Waste The Thing (haz­arDouS mu­ta­tion, 2005)

Metal Hammer (UK) - - Horror Songs -

John car­pen­ter’s 1982 sci-fi hor­ror clas­sic The Thing – a mas­ter­class in slow-re­lease ten­sion and mount­ing fear in an antarc­tic base be­sieged by a ruth­less alien shape-shifter – is 109 min­utes long, yet these Vir­ginian thrash re­vival­ists dis­patched the whole plot in 1:53 of breath­less, break­neck cross­over. “I don’t like the cur­rent state of hor­ror,” pon­dered ryan Waste in 2012. “older movies had si­lence where you could use your imag­i­na­tion to think about what’s hap­pen­ing.” The Thing cer­tainly em­bod­ied that creep­ing, at­mo­spheric sus­pense, but it’s amus­ing to hear Mu­nic­i­pal Waste com­plain some­thing’s too fast and noisy.

CHOICE LYRIC: “Half the crew’s dead, more to go / Some­how it’s got to stop / And now MacReady’s get­ting pissed off / Now there’s noth­ing left to do / Dis­cov­er­ing who’s hu­man is what this fi­nal test will prove”
