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. Make sure to listen to the new single below!
Commenting on the single, guitarist Ryan Waste says:
“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. It’s about overcoming the pressure and slicing down the odds when everything is stacked against you.”
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.

MUNICIPAL WASTE maintain course as vicious and vital as ever on 2022’s Electrified Brain 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.
