Iron Reagan (Municipal Waste, Darkest Hour) have announced a string of new North American tour dates that will commence in just a few weeks. This tour will see the debut of new bassist Rob Skotis (Hellbear) in their midst. The tour will be in support of their new record, Worse Than Dead, which you can stream below. Here is where the band will be hitting:
Iron Reagan (Municipal Waste, Darkest Hour) will release their debut full length, Worse Than Dead, on March 5th via A389 Recordings and Magic Bullet Records. This intense melodic hardcore outfit have given us a taste of the new record over at Exclaim in the form of “Bodies”. The song is just full of energy and spite and will have you moshing in your parents living room while they stare at you and contemplate committing you into a mental institution. Check out that track now if you know what’s good for you.
You may remember the horrific bus accident that Baroness was involved in last year. The band members are recovering very well from the accident but, as you can imagine, their medical expenses are ridiculous. In a true act of love and kindness, friends of the band have launched a relief fund for them. These friends include Mastodon, Meshuggah, Neurosis, Season of Mist Records, Circle Takes the Square and a lot more. The aptly named Baroness Relief will hold a benefit auction in which the aforementioned bands will auction of instruments, LP’s, signed posters and other merchandise they have donated. The upcoming auction, that will take place on eBay, (no date has been set as of yet) has been organised by Baroness’ sound engineer Loopy Fiasco, Relapse Records’ Rennie Jaffe and the band’s “web dude”. Baroness’ “web dude” made it clear that “all proceeds from this auction will be given directly to the band and crew affected in as transparent way as possible.” We will keep you updated on the auction as more info becomes available. Until then, check out some of the things people have donated to the auction below!
Just five days ago, on the 8th of this month, the awesome Tankcrimes Records celebrated their 10th Anniversary as a label and as a payoff to their fans and followers, have since been allowing downloads of almost their entire discography of releases on a pay-what-you-want basis. I began following Tankcrimes about halfway through their career, first introduced into their line of excellent, humorous, and brutal releases through acts such as the weed and old school death metal influenced group Cannabis Corpse and the Gwar-ian death thrashers, Ghoul. Their lineage of excellent releases continues today as evidenced by the recent awesome hardcore punk album, Not You, by Kicker and the awesome thrash split , Toxic Waste, between Toxic Holocaust and Municipal Waste, regular plays around American Aftermath HQ. So what are you waiting for? Go download the whole gamut of albums via bandcamp here. It wouldn’t hurt to donate a couple of bucks either. To many more years of blood soaked releases.
So some of you guys may have noticed that the wolf is back…. Which means it is time for the return of AA’s exclusive bootleg series. This time I am bringing you the (almost) full set from Municipal Waste performance at this years edition of Chaos In Tejas.
Thinking back this show was one of the best MW shows I’ve ever been to. The mix was great, the bands setlist was awesome, the beer was cold and the crowd went fucking wild. It truly was everything you need for a great Waste set. Honestly I don’t remember too much of the show. I just remember throwing beers at nazi punks and stage diving till my entire body was bruised…. Yeah, it really was a good time. Continue after the jump to enjoy the madness -
Come fall and winter, hell will have officially enveloped the earth. The upcoming already tour-heavy quarters of fall and winter will now further welcome a North American split tour between crossover thrashers Municipal Waste and legendary grinders Napalm Death with direct support incoming from death metal heavyweights Exhumed. In addition, select dates will pull additional support from varied acts among the ranks of Vektor, Dayglo Abortions, Attitude Adjustment, Speedwolf, Repulsion, and Dwarves. In other news, it seems that I have just died and gone to hell. Check out the dates(via Metal Underground) for this absolute behemoth of a tour below. Continue reading

The people over at Decibel Magazine are amazing. Not only do they bring us a great magazine every month and one of a kind flexi discs, right now they are streaming half of the Toxic Holocaust / Municipal Waste split Toxic Waste. Yes! That is correct, Decibel is streaming one new song from each band and both tracks are phenomenal crossover monsters. Pulverizing from start to finish. And to keep it fucking punk, each song is less than two minutes. I mentioned that Decibel was streaming these tracks, but thanks to the wonders of the internetz, they have also been uploaded to YouTube. So you can stream those tracks below. Get thrashed, motherfuckers. Toxic Waste will be released on June 12th via Tankcrimes Records. [Continue...]
Start your Friday morning off right by watching a high quality bootleg of a full Argonauts (Burnt By The Sun, Discordance Axis, Municipal Waste, East of The Wall) set. The video below is of the band performing on April 27, 2012 at The Bottom Lounge in Chicago, IL. Not only is the video quality good, but it also has fairly good audio quality. This is the first Argonauts footage that I have seen with Chris Alfano (East Of The Wall) on vocals. Even though I am a big fan of their old vocalists Dimitri’s vocals, I think Chris‘s style might fit the bands sound more.
I can’t wait for Argonauts to release their first album. It is easily one of my top ten most anticipated release of 2012. Watch the full set below and if you have a spare minute, go through Hate5six‘s vimeo channel. He (or she) has got some killer shit on there.
Holy shit. This is amazing news. Two of the premiere bands in the neo-thrash scene, Toxic Holocaust and Municipal Waste are preparing to release a split 7″! Fucking amazing. Each band will contribute two songs to their respective sides and each track is sure to be a thrashy son of a bitch. The artwork for the split is fantastic, mainly because it was done by the same dude that has brought you artwork by Cannabis Corpse, Skeletonwitch and Municipal Waste, Andrei Bouzikov. The dude is epic. Check out the artwork for the split at the top of this post and get stoked. The split will drop on June 12th via Tankcrimes Records.
I fucking love Municipal Waste. Their crossover brilliance just drives something deep down inside of me. I have love all of their releases and even their newly released The Fatal Feast. I was unaware that the band had released a new EP on Scion AV, however. I don’t know why I didn’t hear about this, but I just found out today. Well, I did what any logical human being would do: I fucking downloaded this shredder. To go along nicely with the EP is the band’s new music video for “Repossession.” It’s a fun little video in which Waste act as a repo company who sneak into peoples cribs and take their shit. It’s pretty funny and the song rips. Check out the video below and download the new EP for free here.
Its been about three years since Virginia based party thrashers Municipal Waste came out with their foutth full length Massive Agressive, which in all honesty was my first real introduction to this band. Their blending of humor, politics, gore, shlock, and sleaze pretty much peaked my interest which led me to this bands ealier material, notably Waste ‘Em All and The Art Of Partying. Its nothing I took overly seriously or considered too hard hitting, but I though it was decent.
crossover thrashers Municipal Waste, who will be releasing their new album The Fatal Feast on April 10th via Nuclear Blast Records, have released a music video for the title track off of said album. this is a pretty gnarly video which features space travel, live thrashing and the band devouring the guts of a security guard-looking dude. Check out the video below.
