Municipal Waste Guitarist Picks Up Bassfor New Band, Volture


Perhaps in an effort to catch up with drummer Dave Witte, who goes through side projects the way most rockers go through girlfriends, Municipal Waste guitarist Ryan Waste is playing bass in the new band Volture, which also features vocalist Brent Hubbard, guitarist Nick Poulos and drummer Barry Cover.

The group is currently working on its six-song debut EP, ‘Shocking Its Prey,’ which should drop later this year. And judging by the two songs Volture have posted on their MySpace, ‘Volture’ and ‘Heavy Metal Machine,’ the band is slower and more melodic than Municipal Waste, drawing influence from bands classic like Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Grim Reaper.

“Ever since I was a young headbanger, I dreamed of doing a real heavy metal band,” Waste said. “Growing up on Judas Priest and eventually delving into more obscure new wave of British heavy metal bands, I yearned to have one of my own.”

The dream became a possibility when Waste met Hubbard, whose high-pitched, vibrato-laden vocals are reminiscent of classic belters such as Rob Halford and Geoff Tate.

“His natural singing ability floored me upon the first note and I knew we needed to start a band,” Waste said. “It’s been a long time coming, but I am proud to say we have arrived in full force to shock the world.”
