Get ready for another taste of the WASTE!
Richmond's hard-charging, thrash metal maniacs Municipal Waste have revealed the blistering second single, "High Speed Steel," from their massively-anticipated 7th studio album, Electrified Brain, that's due out July 1st via Nuclear Blast.
"High Speed Steel is our ode to an era when heavy metal was transitioning into a faster form. We pushed the limits of our sound to channel that classic dynamic and keep the intensity high," says guitarist Ryan Waste. "It’s about overcoming the pressure and slicing down the odds when everything is stacked against you."
Electrified Brain marks Municipal Waste's first album in 5 years, following the release of their critically exalted 2017 record Slime and Punishment. And don't think they've slowed down in the years since. Recorded in Philadelphia with producer Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Code Orange), Electrified Brain is a high-voltage non-stop masterclass of neck-snapping thrash that'd be the ideal soundtrack for high-speed car chases and backyard steel cage matches as witnessed on the other new track "Grave Dive."

Municipal Waste will be on the road in support of Electrified Brain all summer and fall in North America and Europe including tours with At the Gates and Anthrax.
