To say that First Class Trash is a great local band is a complete understatement. Having seen these guys a few times grace the stages of Las Vegas, I can definitely say that they are talented as hell in person. What about on their recordings though?

For local bands who have not gained mainstream or widespread success, it can be hard to get a first album, whether it be an EP or an LP, together. There is a lot of time, effort, money, blood, sweat, and tears put into the creation of this type of art. Some bands take years to get something out, and it isn’t even worth it half of the time. However, on Halloween, First Class Trash will drop a bomb on the Las Vegas music scene with their album Cutthroat Cocktail .


Bringing the industrial genre to a new generation, Eli Raider and the boys show off all of their talents. This album is filled with catchy tunes that not only make you want to sing along, but make you want to bang your head as well. If you are a fan of Murderdolls, DOPE, KMFDM, etc. then you will definitely want to get your hands on this. I definitely can’t wait to see them perform these tracks very soon, whether it be on the Vamp’d stage or at the Whisky A Go Go, this band is a definite force to be wreckoned with. This may not be something brand new being brought to the table, but it’s something twisted so that it has adapted to more of a modern synth sound.

Definitely do not miss out on this record. Purchase it on Halloween, or if you will be seeing them open up for DOPE on 10/29/2014, you can get your exclusive copy. A definite 4 out of 5 stars for these guys!

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
