Possibly the most fun band on the planet right now, Municipal Waste have blazed the trail for other 80s-minded crossover lovers to follow and “Hazardous Mutation” is the playbook that those pretenders will follow. The Waste are cool dudes, their live shows are a blast, and they’re constantly psyched to be able to thrash for a living.
If you’ve never heard them before, Municipal Waste plays crossover thrash in the vein of Wermacht and DRI. “Hazardous Mutation” is the band’s Earache debut and its almost too rad for humans to handle. The album is 15 tracks of killer retro thrash never sounds old or dated. It’s not a put-on and it’s nice to see a band having fun again. Watch out for the terror shark!
Here's the promo video for "Unleash the Bastards", off of "Hazardous Mutation."
