Municipal Waste Share Animated Video For “Grave Dive”

Municipal Waste have shared an animated video for their song “Grave Dive.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Electrified Brain.”

Vocalist Tony Foresta commented:

“We are very excited to premiere another video off the new record. We thought it would be a good idea to bring back Pierre [Mousquet] and IMOV studios for another animated film since we loved the last one so much. This video has more Easter eggs than the holiday where Jesus died.”

Pierre Mousquet added:

“Almost ten years after ‘You’re Cut Off‘, I had the chance, once again, to dive into Municipal Waste‘s awesome universe to create the ‘Grave Dive‘ animated video. The song gave me endless inspiration resulting in too many ideas to fit in a 2:32 long video. So don’t blink!”

Municipal Waste Premiere “Electrified Brain” Music Video

Municipal Waste have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “Electrified Brain.” That effort will be released on July 1.

Guitarist Ryan Waste commented:

“‘Electrified Brain‘ is a tale of revenge and redemption, continuing the concept of our song ‘Mental Shock‘ rounding out the ‘Deathripper Trilogy.’ It’s about being wrongfully accused and stripped of your rights, only to overcome and break free through the electric power of heavy music.

We called upon our friend Norman Cabrera once again to handle the title track music video after the incredible job he did on ‘Slime and Punishment.’ Visually he went above and beyond and it became a much more cinematic experience thanks to Rob Lucas at Wolfpack Studios.”

Director Norman Cabrera added:

“I pulled out all the stops for this video. It’s in the spirit of classic Heavy Metal videos like Ozzy‘s Bark at the Moon and Dio‘s The Last in Line. Sci Fi-Horror imagery lends itself very well to the vibe of the band. We’re channeling a bit of Cronenberg and Carpenter. The best sci fi movies of the past often take current events and put them in a fantastic setting. The video takes place in a not so distant dystopian future where your individuality can be taken away by a faceless organization. It’s a wild concept but not too far off from our world today.”

Municipal Waste Premiere New Song “High Speed Steel”

Municipal Waste have premiered a new song titled “High Speed Steel.” This track is from the band’s new album “Electrified Brain,” which will be released on July 1. Guitarist Ryan Waste commented:

“‘High Speed Steel‘ is our ode to an era when heavy metal was transitioning into a faster form. We pushed the limits of our sound to channel that classic dynamic and keep the intensity high. It’s about overcoming the pressure and slicing down the odds when everything is stacked against you.”

Municipal Waste Premiere New Song “Grave Dive”

Municipal Waste have premiered a new song titled “Grave Dive.” This track is from the band’s new album “Electrified Brain,” which will be released on July 1.

Tony Foresta said the following about the song:

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

He also added the following about the album:

“We’re not writing any love ballads to sell records. 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.”

“We are very proud, excited and honored to be a part of the 2022 Decibel Magazine Tour. Sharing the stage with our good friends and fellow shredders Municipal Waste is something we’ve been wanting and waiting to do for a long time, so super stoked to join forces with them along with Gatecreeper and Enforced to reassure fans for an all-out raging lineup!

And we want to make this fun and interesting for the fans as well, so we are asking everyone to give us their thoughts on which songs Obituary should play. We are really looking forward to reading all the comments and suggestions, and start working on the setlist. So, hit us with your favorite song suggestions and let’s do this!”

Municipal Waste added:

“We’re very excited to be a part of a tour with so many heavy hitters from start to finish! Looking forward to hitting so many of these places we haven’t played in such a long time.”

Municipal Waste Re-Sign With Nuclear Blast

Municipal Waste have officially re-signed with Nuclear Blast Records. The band’s new album will be released through the label in 2022.

The group commented:

Vocalist Tony Foresta:

“When we were asked about re-signing to Nuclear Blast only 2 words came to mind…no brainer! Having such a long history with an amazing label that’s been nothing but supportive made it an easy decision on our part. Looking forward to many records and even more years with The Blast!!! And an extra special thanks to everyone in the warehouse and offices all over for agreeing to stick it out with us for the years to come. Cheers NB and the Waste!”

Guitarist Ryan Waste:

“We couldn’t think of a more suitable place for the Waste than our radioactive family at Nuclear Blast. They’ve always given us complete creative freedom and challenged us to push it to the limit with our deranged ideas. As the music business changes with the times, we trust that our vision remains unfazed by trends and our label backs us up with full force.”

Bassist Land Phil:

“I think I can say that working with Nuclear Blast has been a pleasure from start to finish. Moving forward with them has been a no brainer, it is also a privilege to be on the same label as many MANY other fantastic bands! Looking forward to bringing more music to the world with Nuclear Blast!”

Drummer Dave Witte:

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it ya know? I’m so happy we extended our relationship with Nuclear Blast. They understand what we’re all about and it was a no brainer to re-sign. Their dedication to metal combined with the history the label makes NB the perfect home for us.”
