They are known for their loud, drunken, party atmosphere and rowdy show attendees, and also for their humorous thrash oriented parody song titles. Occasionally, they have been known to play unscheduled shows late at night. Municipal Waste are a crucial element of Richmond culture, and have four albums under their bullet belts, including 2012's The Fatal Feast. Read more on

Municipal Waste are an odd band to try and review. There should probably be a media-wide agreement not to say a word about their records until we’ve lived with them for six months, as that’s the only point you can really make a conclusive judgement on them – not because they’re unusually complex, but because they can have a rather short shelf-life. But as that hasn’t happened and you lot won’t give a toss what we say in six months time, here goes.

Tony Foresta takes a break from recording the new Municipal Waste album to report on Hurricane Irene

August 28th, 2011

Even here on the other side of the Atlantic ocean, you can’t have escaped news of Hurricane Irene, the enormous storm that’s “pummelling the US east coast” (c/o the BBC) right now. At the time of writing, it’s already claimed the lives of at least five people across North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, forced the evacuation of over 2 million people from their homes, and with it’s 80mph winds it’s caused millions of dollars’ worth of damage.

Thank God for men like Municipal Waste’s Tony Foresta, who’s taken a break from recording his band’s fifth studio album to report the storm’s impact on his hom town of Richmond, Virginia.

Sonisphere Festival has just announced another 12 bands for Knebworth – and we’ve got to admit, we’re just a little underwhelmed. First off, Pendulum are the “Special Guests” (i.e., they’re headlining the smaller of the two stages) on Friday 30 July. Which is Iron Maiden day. Hmmmmm.

Step 1) Buy two six-packs of beer. Step 2) Drink all 12 cans as quickly as possible. Step 3) Put your head down, and run into the nearest wall as fast as you can. That giddy, oh-I’m-going-to-be-sick-oh-God-are-those-my-brains feeling you’ve now got? That’s how the a night out with Municipal Waste feels like, if you use Massive Aggressive as a starting point.

Municipal Waste tore through a relentless 45 minute set of ear-bleeding thrash-punk, buzzing with all the wired-up mania of a rabbit warren caught up in the heat of a speed-fueled fuck-fest. Even with their guitars squashed down to a tinny buzz, the crowdstill  lapped up every second of firm favourites ‘Sadistic Magician’ and ‘Black Ice’, but also tracks showcased from their forthcoming new album, Massive Aggressive.
