Wastoid - _Say Your Prayers_
(Independent, 2002)
by: Quentin Kalis (7.5 out of 10)
Wastoid are one of those bands that are least likely to have terms such as "original", or "groundbreaking" headed in their general direction anytime in the near future. Normally this would be a huge negative as I value originality and innovation quite highly in the music I choose to listen to, but in some exceptional cases originality can and does take a backseat to music that is simply unpretentiously good. Wastoid are one such band: they were not formed with the intention of forging a new path for metal, nor do they lay claim to such lofty aspirations; their sole function is to play the unashamedly retro classic metal that they are no doubt huge fans of. It is uncertain whether today's metal fan(atic) will wish to hear old school metal performed by anyone other then the masters. But this will not concern Wastoid, as they will in all likelihood go on playing the music they love whether they sell 100 or 100 000 CDs.
