Municipal Waste

Energetic crossover-influenced thrash is alive and well in the new millennium, thanks to bands like Virginia's Municipal Waste. Virtually every song on their 2005 Earache debut Hazardous Mutation is a non-stop thrashfest, invoking the best of the thrash legends (Exodus, Anthrax, to name but two) along with the immediacy of prime crossover a la D.R.I. -- really, this album simply smokes from start to finish. Nothing intellectual, no long drawn-out epics (many songs are under two minutes, none over three), just relentless thrashing about from a band with energy to burn. Highly entertaining, clearly retro yet not stale, these guys have a great future ahead of them.

Recent album: The Last Rager, released on October 11, 2019.
