Municipal Waste Release "Slime And Punishment" Music Video!

July 2, 2018

Richmond, Virginia's MUNICIPAL WASTE released their sixth studio album Slime And Punishment, a year ago via Nuclear Blast. In support of that release, the band are about to embark on a run of 20 club and festival dates, across nine countries in Europe (the whole itinerary can be found below). To mark the occasion, the guys have unleashed a brand new music video for the album's title track "Slime And Punishment", over on YouTube. Watch here:

"Teaming up with Norman Cabrera for this video was a match made in horror. His 35 years experience with practical FX in film shined through as you‘ll see in this latest WASTE clip. Not only a fan of monsters, he's a metal lifer like us, so we saw eye to eye on the aesthetic of everything involved. Initially, Norman approached me to make a mask for MUNICIPAL WASTE, which has been his specialty for many years. I said why don't you do us one better and make a damn video?! He leaped on the opportunity and even stepped up as the director, as well as the effects designer, making multiple masks and creating the horrific world of 'Slime And Punishment'. We all grew up on VHS and that played a major inspiring role in the video as well. It was like making a movie, all the work that went into this and there are countless people to thank. I have to give shout-outs to Slasher Dave for composing the intro score and Joel Grind for taking us out with the synth outro, bookending this nightmare perfectly." - Ryan Waste
