“W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” by Mutank, where punk meets thrash!

June 18, 2017 by: Shauna O'Donnell

Out of Canada is a band that is somewhat of a mixed bag of metal, they sound like a mix of Suicidal Tendencies, Motorhead, meets some in your face thrash of bands like Overkill and Exodus.  That band is known as Mutank!  Mutank will be releasing “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T” via Boonsdale Records on June 16th!

Mutank is composed of Stephen Reynolds on vocals/bass, Ahmed Daas on drums, Costa Skoulikas on guitars, and Chris Nasty on guitars.  They have played the Wacken Open Air Festival back in 2014 and they are currently providing direct support for Annihilator on the “Cross Canada” tour this summer!
“W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” is one of those records that you seem a band jamming out in their garage and eventually an audience just gathers because their thrash, punk, and a bit of tongue-in-cheek causes the listener to pay attention to what Mutank has to say.  Thrash fans will appreciate the blasts beats offered whereas punk fans will appreciate the grovelly Lemmy of Motorhead meets Johnny Rotten of Sex Pistols type of vocals.  Mutank definitely offers a throwback where people come in on skateboards with their denim jackets that proudly display patches of the bands that they are listening to.  This is a great throwback type of album!  June 16th go pick it up!  Here is the track listing below!
