Drank-ass drunkenness. Epic parties filled with mayhem. Flesh-eating space mutants. Doritos Locos Tacos Supreme at Taco Bell. The dudes from local thrash metal outfit Municipal Waste understand these things. The band has been earning diehard fans throughout the world for years now thanks to their musical skill, high energy and twisted sense of humor. “The Fatal Feast,” their fifth and possibly longest record, features more blistering songs with titles like “Covered in Sick/The Barfer” as well as “Residential Disaster” and “Idiot Check” all led by the relentless force known as lead singer Tony Foresta. Not only is Municipal Waste one of the tightest bands in Richmond, but its album covers are the sickest since Eddie graced those Iron Maiden covers back in the day. They are joined on this ferocious bill by veteran Birmingham, England, extreme-metal group Napalm Death, one of the best-selling death metal groups of all time in this country. Also on the bill are Exhumed and Speedwolf. Expect the floor to be sticky with human guts, cheap beer and raw spewage. The show takes place at Kingdom on Nov. 23 at 10 p.m. Tickets cost $15. kingdomrva.com.
