Their recent work has been pretty decent though, a return to their roots of sorts. Why Rob Flynn started rapping is beyond me--wait, it's because it was $$$ at the time.
Yeah, I know, but I don't like their old stuff except for Burn my Eyes. So, I just kind of ment that their aiding and can kinda be part of NWOAHM because their newer stuff is thrashy goodness. Your right, in most cases. But, I said them because for one, people are just finding out about them now, and to alot of people their "new".
And Amon Amarth isn't even from the US, right?
I guess Municipal Waste can be part of it, too. Maybe, their more just an underground thrash band.
