Municipal Waste Collection Fun-As-F*** New Single “High Speed ​​Steel”

Last month it was announced that Richmond beer merchants Municipal Waste would be releasing a new album featuring one of the coolest covers of all time. Now the band has released a new single from this record, and surprise surprise, it’s the boss.

Municipal Waste’s new single, “High Speed ​​Steel,” is something of a fan song, ostensibly about the experience of going to a thrash metal show. Again, all of the Municipal Waste songs are about this in some way except for the ones about radioactive wolves or space slime. And like all those songs, this one is a fucking rage. So what’s not to like?

According to guitarist Ryan Waste:

“High Speed ​​Steel is our ode to a time when heavy metal was shifting to a faster form. We pushed the boundaries of our sound to channel that classic dynamic and keep the intensity high. It’s about overcoming the pressure and reduce the odds when everything is against you.

Right on.
