Since 2001, MUNICIPAL WASTE have uncompromisingly stuck to their guns as hard-partying and even harder-hitting torchbearers of 21st century thrash metal. The Richmond, VA quintet—Tony Foresta [vocals], Ryan Waste [guitar], Philip “Landphil” Hall [bass], Dave Witte [drums], and Nick Poulos [guitar]—have transformed from a cult favorite into metal mainstays for a generation. Along the way, Decibel touted “The Art of Partying” in its coveted “Hall of Fame” and asserted it “revved up interest in thrash and inspired a fresh wave of youthful new bands. Metal Hammer christened “The Art of Partying” one of “The 50 Greatest Thrash Metal Albums Ever, while Loudwire pegged “The Art of Partying” as “The Best Thrash Album of 2007” and “Hazardous Mutation” as “The Best Thrash Album of 2005.” The guys have sold out countless shows on multiple continents and piled up tens of millions of streams in the process. 2017’s “Slime  and Punishment” bowed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Heatseekers Albums Chart, and “The Last Rager” EP only accelerated their momentum in 2019.

Municipal Waste maintain course as vicious and vital as ever on 2022’s “Electrified Brain” [Nuclear Blast] as heard on tracks like “Grave Dive,” “High Speed Steel” and “Crank The Heat.” Recorded during the pandemic in Philadelphia with producer Arthur Rizk [Power Trip, Code Orange], the sessions would be the first time the band reunited in person after a year. Together, they achieved “a thicker and heavier sound.

In the end, “Electrified Brain” will give you everything you’d want from a Municipal Waste record or heavy metal record, period. “We hope you walk away with some bloody ears, blown speakers, pissed off parents, black eyes, and a healthy distrust of authority,” says Tony.
