Our hometown heavyweights, Walking Corpse Syndrome, accomplished some long time dreams last night. Not only did they perform LIVE at the historic Wilma, but they were also the opening act for metal MONSTERS Anthrax and Testament.

Well, when it rains it pours, as members of WCS woke up today to discover that UK-Based rock mag 'Kerrang!' featured the band in the magazine's "U.S.A: Underground Sounds of America."

Walking Corpse Syndrome are more fun to listen to than your average band that sounds like a sentient meat grinder. Sure, the Montana-based six-piece has all the muscular riffs, bellowed vocals, and deafening blast beats one normally finds in extreme underground metal — but their industrial overtones, bouncing rhythms, and tasty solos make them far more approachable and interesting than a typical chug-along OSDM act. The result feels like metal focused entirely on core values of sonic fury and rabid enjoyment. Calling Walking Corpse Syndrome “metal metal” sounds basic as fuck…but it’s what comes to mind.

Founding member and guitarist Matthew Bile fielded 5 questions from Kerrang! Read the full article to see what he had to say.

Also, peep all the "Corpse Walkers" that showed up early to the bands opening gig. Much love for the supporters of local metal and our friends of WCS.
