Municipal Waste Debut ‘Wave of Death,’ Announce ‘The Last Rager’ EP
Two years removed from their Slime and Punishment album, Municipal Waste have gone thrashin' once again, having just announced their forthcoming EP, The Last Rager. Check out a live performance video for the new track, "Wave of Death," below.
The Waste's sub-two-minute cut is a riff-o-rama mosh bonanza with the occasional gang chant. It's not your typical song and we've got no complaints about the group stitching together a few riffs worth milking for an eternity in this nice bite-sized recording.
The Last Rager drops on Oct. 11 on Nuclear Blast. To pre-order your copy, head to the label's webstore and view a variety of options.
The EP was recorded by bassist LandPhil Hall at Blaze of Torment Studios in Richmond, Va. and Josh Hall completed the additional engineering. Rob Caldwell mixed the four-track effort while Toxic Holocaust's Joel Grind handled the mastering. The artwork was created by Brian Crabaugh.
Check out the artwork and track listing for the EP beneath the video and find out where you can see Municipal Waste on their co-headlining tour with Napalm Death at the dates listed below that.
