I can’t say I was prepared for the unwarranted assault that was bestowed upon me when I popped this in. Its albums like this that come along every once in a while that really helps keep a smile on my face. First of all, this is crossover thrash that I haven’t heard (or heard done this well) since the late 80’s. Too much of it crossed over completely into metal or just went the way of the dinosaur and became played out because too many bands were flooding the market with it. But something about The Waste keeps me stimulated. Hazardous Mutation is a smart, pounding, faster than a speeding bullet attack on the senses that leaves you with a sore neck from whipping your head around in a frenzy. Unlike other modern outfits amidst this genre, MW leaves nothing left to be desired. They play the fast and heavy, with a lot of tongue in cheek lyrics, yet they’re still extremely pissed. Very S.O.D.-esque in a way. Don’t skip on this. Its also a good start if you’re just getting into them. Get this then work backwards and get your hands on Waste ‘Em All. Another solid release that will leave you rooting through your attic in hopes of finding that denim vest with all the Venom and Napalm Death patches on it that you had back in 1986.

MYRATH (english meaning Legacy ) is a Technical Melodic Metal band from Tunisia, a small county well known for its resort areas on the Mediterranean coast but certainly not for its metal bands, yet in just a few years what started out as a teenage cover band (formed in early 2001 by guitarist and main song writer Malek Ben Arbia, just 13 years old at the time), Has grown into one of the worlds major contenders in Power Prog Metal and gained much respect by the international prog-power international community with the release of their label debut album (Hope). Ben having graduated from the prestigious French International guitar music academy M.A.I. at such an early age, has aligned himself with a formidable force of young talent. It all really started happening In March 24th 2006 when the band opened for ROBERT PLANT and ADAGIO in Carthage Amphitheater (Tunisia) in front of nearly 7000 Rock/metal fans. Adagio keyboards player Kevin Codfert who watched Myrath performance (and later listened to Myrath first self produced album double face released in March 2005 in Tunisia only) detected the great potential of the band as well as promising composing skills. Myrath recorded in December 2006 their debut album Hope in a low cost studio in Tunis-Tunisia, with the valuable assistance and guidence of Kevin Codfert (Adagio) as engineer and producer. This album was a turning point in Myrath carrier as the band was signed by the French label Brennus -Music who released (Hope) worldwide in September 2007.

Municipal Waste reminds a lot of bands like D.R.I., Nuclear Assault with a crossover. There’s originality here, so give a try on this!!!
Enjoy the mix of energetic hardcore punk with the attitude of metal? Look no further, people. Municipal Waste is bringing back the spark that bands like Nuclear Assault, 80’s Corrosion of Conformity, and D.R.I. have been given respect for. This is a refresher amongst today’s music scene. It may even bring you back 20 years from now! I recommend.
These guys are keeping the crossover flame burning. They sound a lot like D.R.I., Crumbsuckers, Cryptic Slaughter, Ludichrist, Wehrmacht etc. This whole album is just nonstop thrash from beginning to end. You never get a moment to breath. As soon as one song is over the other immediatly starts and they only play at one speed, ridiculously fast. They also have very cool lyrics and song titles like Bangover which is about how you feel the day after a crazy thrash show and Abusement Park which is about a seemingly innocent looking amusement park which is actually evil. And of course they carry on with their Kurt Russel obssession with The Thing. So if you are into extremely fast metal or punk you should by this masterpiece.
Municipal Waste capture the sound of late 80s crossover in a superbly effortless fashion and combine it with their own originally juvenile sense of humour that is relentless on tracks such as ‘Abusement Park’ or ‘The Thrashin’ Of The Christ’. The album sprawls over 16 tracks that each nail the vibes of the 80s yet shine with a contemporary energy and appeal that make Municipal Waste stand out from the crowd.
