From choosing a name that makes them sound like some sort of urban public works department, to their music itself, Richmond, VA's Municipal Waste openly bow down to the memory of '80s thrash metal and crossover twenty years after, and a few hundred miles away from the original movement's heyday in New York City.

In 2010, Municipal Waste signed to Nuclear Blast Records, and they released their 5th album 'The Fatal Feast' in April 2012. Guest musicians on this album are John Connelly (NUCLEAR ASSAULT), Steve Moore (ZOMBI), and singer Tim Barry (ex-AVAIL)
