Municipal Waste just released a new single, “Wave of Death” which is a fast metal song with video to match. The track starts out with a guitar and drum switch that gets you riled up before vocalist, Tony Foresta comes in with lyrics, “Wave of Death” on repeat. The song then switches up with a guitar solo with a backdrop of drumming that speeds up and then slows down to its normal pace. Vocalist, Foresta comes back in with, “Wave of Death” and fast drums then lead you out. The band includes members, Ryan Waste, Dave Witte, Land Phil, Tony “Guardrail” Foresta.
The new video shows clips of the band’s shows where fans are raging about in mosh pits while bandmates jump off stage to crowd surf. You can see the massive amount of people at their shows who are there to thrash to their music. The new track, “Wave of Death” will be included in Municipal Waste’s new album, The Last Rager which is set for release on October 11 via Nuclear Blast.
Municipal Waste is from Virginia and most known for its 2007 album, The Art of Partying. The group recently released its sixth studio album, Slime And Punishment with title track “Slime and Punishment” and the song “Breathe Grease.”
Municipal Waste and Napalm Death have announced a tour together for later this year. The tour will take place in major US cities like Houston, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The fall tour starts in October and is supported by Sick Of It All and Take Offense, as well as other groups at various different performances.
