The Louisville, KY, based thrash metal outfit, BELUSHI SPEED BALL, have revealed their new single “Ripping Off Municipal Waste”. Taken from the upcoming album What Us, Worry?, the band’s wild antics are being transported from the theatrics of the stage onto the beloved Nintendo 64.
“Remember, We are no talent musical hacks, just a bunch of performers who alienate fans. “Ripping off Municipal Waste” is our “Tongue and Cheek” response to people at our shows who have compared us to The Waste. Yes, we both are crossover thrash, but we aren’t even close to as talented as them. Thus, every riff is a common trope you would hear from the metal gods themselves. It’s our tribute to one of the most inspirational bands to ever influence Belushi Speed Ball. The song features a face melting solo from Tony Barhoum (Condition Critical), recorded by Chase Bensing, and is Mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust).”
-Vinny Bonny Crastellano, Belushi Speed Ball-
