Episode 34 – Super Thrash Bros!
To be in a video game music cover band in 2019, there needs to be a gimmick of some sort. Fortunately, Super Thrash Bros. have a rock solid one. These gents combine wacky Smash Bros. themed showmanship and metal medleys with Smash Bros. themed costumes for a combination that can’t be beat! Today on XVGM Radio, Mike and Justin are lounging with Super Thrash Bros. members Eric Germain (Ness; Drums), Ryan Morris (Megaman; Guitar) and Nick Palmisano(Skull Kid; Bass) to listen to the band’s favorite medleys of their own. Then, we’ll compare one portion of the medley to it’s Thrash Bros. counterpart, head to head! Other members of Super Thrash Bros. who weren’t able to join us this time around include Ant Palmisano (Shiek, Guitar), Bryan Carroll (Master Hand), Ed Connolly (Crazy Hand).This versus match is worth every second! Hear Mike get schooled on “progressive punk” aka Thrash, hear all about how this band came together to rock, and…long blonde haired dudes headbanging while wearing Donkey Kong ties?! It’s all on this episode of XVGM Radio!
