Though they may be better known for their omnipresent skull logo, which can be found on a copious amount of merchandise, than their music and some argue that the current incarnation of the band is little more than a tribute band. It’s hard for me to fault them from caring on earning a living if it’s as fun as the show was Saturday night. If this is a typical present day Misfits show, I’d gladly go see them next time they come through town.
I have always been a massive thrash metal fan. Since the mid-80’s I have devoured as much of this style as possible. Many of those same bands I started on in high school are still out there doing it, but there are also plenty of bands today that are keeping that sound alive as well. None do it better than Ireland’s Gama Bomb. Culling their sound from that early thrash music, 1950’s sci-fi films, and comic book ideas, they are a brash, no holds barred and fun band.
