MUTANK is thrash metal to its finest content. On their newest and latest EP addition “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” released via Boonsdale Records, is a short yet powerful release that is a solid follow-up effort of their debut cassette tape EP “M.E.C.H. Metal”.
Thus “W.H.A.T.S.T.H.A.T.” has already expressed some of its tracks as it were including "P.O.P.U.L.O.U.S." the first single off the release.

Lots of energy, fast paced momentum, with lots of adrenaline can be heard on this one track alone. The rest of the EP is a lot like it, for instance tracks like "I.D.I.O.T. " and "D.E.A.T.H.", are just much more faster and intense than "P.O.P.U.L.O.U.S.".
