“While everyone is getting cuffed up and starting to hunker down for the Holiday/Winter season, we thought now would be a good time to take you back to the glorious NYC Summer Heatwave of 2022. Shot all over Queens and beyond…join The Waste as we deliver our take on one of our favorite TV shows of all time: Taxi Cab Confessions. We hope you find this video for Crank the Heat to be a true scorcher as we look forward to warmer times ahead.”

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.”
