Bat

Combine two members of cult thrash act Municipal Waste with a D.R.I. alum and the result is the simply named Bat. Wings Of Chains, released in 2016, is 29 minutes of grimy, thrashy speed metal that often brings to mind very early Venom, albeit with better production and musicianship values. There's nary a surprise here, and not a ton of variety, but these guys bash out the tunes with reckless abandon. Definitely a just-for-fun project, and a blast to listen to.

Recent album: Axetasy, released on April 26, 2019.
