MUNICIPAL WASTE – To Release New Album “Electrified Brain” On July 1st, 2022

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on June 17, 2022 by Metal Odyssey


MUNICIPAL WASTE will release the massively-anticipated 7th studio album, Electrified Brain, on July 1st via Nuclear Blast. The shocking cover artwork by James Bousema.

“It’s in the vein of songs like ‘Headbanger Face Rip’ and ‘Wave of Death’,” Tony Foresta notes. “It’s an inspirational song for our fans to cause bodily harm to themselves, but in a loud and healthy way, of course.”

“We’re not writing any love ballads to sell records,” affirms Tony. “We’re just doing what we’ve always done since the band started and that’s try to write loud, fast, and ripping hardcorepunkmetal. We hope you walk away with some bloody ears, blown speakers, pissed off parents, black eyes, and a healthy distrust of authority.”

Recorded in Philadelphia with producer Arthur Rizk (Power Trip, Code Orange), “Electrified Brain” is a high-voltage non-stop masterclass of neck-snapping thrash that’d be the ideal soundtrack for high-speed car chases and backyard steel cage matches as witnessed on the new track “Grave Dive.”

“Electrified Brain” Tracklisting:

  1. Electrified Brain
  2. Demoralizer
  3. Last Crawl
  4. Grave Dive
  5. The Bite
  6. High Speed Steel
  7. Thermonuclear Protection
  8. Blood Vessel – Boat Jail
  9. Crank The Heat
  10. Restless and Wicked
  11. Ten Cent Beer Night
  12. Barreled Rage
  13. Putting On Errors
  14. Paranormal Janitor

Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Posted in food, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 7, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Holy Metal crap, it’s already August 7th! When does time ever seem to slow down? Have you been scrambling lately trying to keep up on new album releases? I have. I’m always scrambling… like an egg in a frying pan! At the end of my Metal day, it’s all about being alive and being grateful for family, friends, Metal Buddies and…

If you want to get your eardrums pounded by some (Crossover) Thrash Metal that is super saturated with FUN and Old School vibes, while not missing a beat on total ass-kicking impact, then the recently released Municipal Waste album is for you. (See top of post). The Fatal Feast (Waste In Space) was released back on April 10th, via Nuclear Blast America. Metal as my witness, I cannot stop listening to this new Municipal Waste album. It just sounds and feels so F’n good. Metal be thy name.


Okay, okay. We’ll talk food. Geez. After all, food is… METAL.

On that trip I took to Ohio with my wife back in July, we did stop to eat at another restaurant besides Champps. Skyline Chili was recommended to us by the airport shuttle bus driver. Located in Dayton, Ohio, Skyline Chili served up both fantastic service and most importantly… terrific food. The fantastic service came courtesy of a super-duper friendly waitress named: Charlee.

I realize that there are many female spelling variants for this name, so I chose one at random. If Charlee ever comes across this post, I hope she can direct me to the proper spelling of her name! Charlee is a college student and aspiring entertainment journalist. Rock on.

Below is a fine example of what my wife and I ordered for lunch at Skyline Chili on our visit. After my wife and I ate this bounty of food, we didn’t eat dinner that night! Nor did we eat breakfast the next day! Whoa!

Last and definitely not least, I have decided to write for Brian Basher’s Hard Rock Nights. There are editorial responsibilities included too. Metal Buddy Brian Basher asked and Stone said… “Let’s Rock.”

Don’t panic! Metal Odyssey isn’t going away! I will still pump-out the Metal and Extreme Metal news, Metal & Rock ‘N Roll thoughts, album reviews and off-beat stuff (such as restaurants I’ve eaten at), right here!. Metal Odyssey is my Metal sanctuary; so rest assured you’ll always find something new about Metal (and Rock ‘N Roll) here, my Metal brethren!

Some Metal and Rock ‘N Roll Thoughts – Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Posted in classic rock, Hard Rock, hard rock albums, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on May 5, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Back at the beginning of the year, I purchased Revelator; the debut from Tedeschi Trucks Band. This is a CD that I found myself plopping into the car’s player and letting the Rock ‘N Roll from this exquisite band soar. Derek Trucks is simply put, a wow guitarist. Susan Tedeschi is simply put, a wow vocalist.

Fabulous songs and so many tones and rhythms happening from a vast assembly of musicians; that it’s a whirlwind of musical bliss. Anyone unfamiliar with Susan Tedeschi should think: Sheryl Crow. Fans of so many Rock genres can get a kick out of what Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi have accomplished with their band here. Quality personified.

It was sad to hear that Adam Yauch passed away on Friday, May 4th. A founding member of the Beastie Boys is no longer around and he left way too young. Metal Odyssey expresses condolences to the family, bandmates, friends and fans of Adam Yauch.

An album I have caught onto this past week is: Michael Thompson Band – Future Past. This potent dose of AOR and Melodic Hard Rock was released back on February 24th of this year, via Frontiers Records. Michael Thompson is superb on guitar and keyboards. Michael Thompson has been a name in the world of Rock and Pop since the late 80’s, with a who’s who list of legendary celebrities he has played for; from Michael Jackson and Celine Dion to Vince Neil.

Vocalist Larry King (no, not the dude who retired from CNN) has an amazing voice. A trademark AOR/Melodic Rock voice. My ears surely dig how he sings these songs on Future Past. I’ve enjoyed listening to Future Past so much, I am hoping Michael Thompson will create more studio albums with Larry King. Good stuff. I also hope to write more about this album in the near future.

I don’t know about you, yet I am blown away by the album artwork of the new Municipal Waste album cover for The Fatal Feast. Justin Osbourn of Slasher Design created this fantastic cover. If Metal Odyssey adds a new award category of album artwork for the “Best Of” year-end lists; The Fatal Feast will be a muscular Metal contender! Add this one to my list of Metal albums I want to write more about… soon.

Municipal Waste – The Fatal Feast was released back on April 10th of this year, via Nuclear Blast America.


Okay. Those are my Metal and Rock ‘N Roll thoughts for Saturday, May 5th, 2012. Comment on them please! The Metal Odyssey boss said I need to draw more Metal commentary; otherwise I will be yelled at badly. Have a Rockin’ and cool Metal weekend. Also… If you still rent VHS tapes… “be kind and rewind.”

Rest In Peace, Adam Yauch. 1964 – 2012

Rest In Peace, Jeff.
