Municipal Waste

Fresh from pulverizing retro-retro-thrashers and little shits of all ages at the Tankcrimes Brainsqueeze in Oakland, Municipal Waste just put a video for "Wolves of Chernobyl," which you can view after the jump. In it, the band thrashes in the kitchen of a fast food joint, a library, a grocery store and more. Don't we all want to thrash at our jobs? They make record nerds faint, Ryan uses his spike wristband to put a burger on the flattop, and best of all, bassist Land Phil sports a Hulkamania t-shirt. What's not to love? The Waste have always done some wacky Youtube fodder, from "Wrong Answer"'s gory game-show to the "There's a zombie in the pit!" of "Unleash the Bastards."

Municipal Waste will be heading down to Gainesville, Fla. for The Fest (where singer Tony Foresta once had to do security - true story!) on Halloween, Austin in November for Fun Fun Fun Fest, and Europe in December with Saviours and Ramming Speed. Dates below.

That "record nerd" in the beginning of the video is Brandon from Direct Control who once was a member of Municipal Waste.

I saw these guys at Dudefest and they were great live as well.

Of all the times I've seen MW, I think their show in 2007 at the Arlington Heights Knights of Columbus was the best show I've seen of them. Rager (RIP), Disrobe, Toxic Holocaust, and Skeletonwitch opened that show. There was no stage, so that hall turned into an insane basement show vibe with massive raging from front to back! There was a table on the side where kids were diving from. Holy shit. Rage on!
